Rest up for a full day of sightseeing and history with a stay in one of these hand-picked Pittsburgh-area hotels, bookable with Culture Trip.

The Historic Fairview Park made history in the 1800s as the first African American amusement park. Once hosting its own roller coaster, merry-go-round and petting zoo, this protected park in Salem Township continues to be a family-friendly space only minutes away from downtown Pittsburgh. A great attraction that caters to both a city break in the Burgh and a quiet nature getaway, the best hotels near Fairview Park will keep you close to this welcoming green space.

Stay five minutes from Fairview Park at Holiday Inn Express. Zip right over to the park after snagging a grab ‘n’ go breakfast in the lobby. The fitness center has everything you need to fit in a quick cardio workout, but if you’ve got the time, do a few laps around the ice in the Palmer Imaging Arena instead. While you’re around the corner, get your fill of barbecue Steel City-style at Pittsburgh BBQ Company.

2. Courtyard by Marriott Pittsburgh Greensburg

Taking the family to the Burgh for a summer vacation? Stay at Courtyard by Marriott for straightforward access to Idlewild amusement park. Ask for a wake-up call so you and the kids can grab breakfast at the Bistro then make it over for a trolley ride through Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood at the nearby Idlewild & SoakZone amusement park. Alternatively, they can cannonball all night long at the hotel’s indoor pool.

3. Hampton Inn & Suites North Huntingdon-Irwin, PA

You’re never too far from Kenny the Kangaroo when you stay at Hampton Inn & Suites. This hotel is only 14 minutes from Kennywood amusement park, letting you catch a few extra winks before the kids drag you out of bed. No one can blame them for wanting to get over to Thomas Town before the other conductors arrive. If you don’t get a chance to dry off from the Pittsburg Plunge with a ride on the Phantom’s Revenge, feel free to warm up by the fire pits at the hotel.

4. Hampton Inn Greensburg

Even before you roll over to Live! Casino Pittsburgh, you’ll already consider yourself lucky as a guest at the Hampton Inn. You won’t spend a penny on breakfast, parking, wifi or to use the gym. Sure, you could store those savings under your king bed for a rainy day or you could let the dice roll at the casino. Live! is located in the Westmoreland Mall so keep an eye out for Lady Luck on the clearance rack, too.

5. Red Roof Inn Greensburg

Pack your reel, rod and best bait for your stay at Red Roof Inn. This Greensburg hotel is right around the corner from the fishing holes at Twin Lakes Park, another lovely space to play after visiting Fairview Park. Free coffee is brewing in the lobby if you need a precast pick-me-up. Want something else to smile about? There’s an Eat’n Park next door that has a warm Smiley Cookie iced in your favorite color.

6. Hampton Inn Pittsburgh/Monroeville

Hampton Inn puts the best of Steel City within reach while keeping you outside of the hustle and bustle of the Burgh’s downtown. Wake up, take your time munching your way through the breakfast buffet, then get into the Strip District in minutes. Looking for penguins on or off the ice? The zoo and PPG Paints Arena are minutes away. There’s a steakhouse connected to the hotel for convenience, but we insist that you drive the five minutes to Primanti Bros for a famous stuffed sandwich.

7. Hampton Inn & Suites Blairsville

Is it any surprise that a hotel so close to Arnold Palmer’s hometown would have not one but two championship golf courses next door? Hampton Inn & Suites in Blairsville wants you to play your way through the links without worrying about traffic. Walk right over to the course after loosening up your swing at the fitness center. Not sure if you’re loose enough to lower your handicap? Maybe a massage in the spa will do the trick.

8. Holiday Inn Express & Suites Greensburg, an IHG Hotel

Holiday Inn Express & Suites is close to Seton Hill University, yet far enough away that your student won’t get too embarrassed running into you everywhere. A free breakfast is warm and waiting in the morning, but maybe save your coffee order for one of the cool and quirky cafes in downtown Greensburg like the Sun Dawg, Caffeinated Cat or the White Rabbit. One surefire place you definitely won’t run into your coed? In the warm waters of the hotel’s heated indoor pool.
