This hotel is beautiful. From the time we walked in the door it felt like home. The valet guys were super friendly. The front desk personnel were very nice and helpful. We had booked a suite and they gave us a complimentary upgrade to one with a river view. The room was very clean and super well maintained. The complimentary breakfast was great. They have an omelette bar on top of a great selection of other foods.

Great hotel and wonderful staff! We stayed here the night of my wedding and the night prior. Rooms were large enough to fit my entire bridal party while getting ready and then some.

Rented 4 rooms online and had a comfortable stay.
PROs: The check in and out was quick and easy. All of the hotel employees we talked to were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable. The hotel was central to everything we needed to get to.
CONs:The breakfast served was okay. The hotel could use some “spring cleaning” and freshening up.

A very nice, clean hotel with friendly staff. The kitchen in our room had all the amenities if one decides to stay in and cook. Oversized shower in the bathroom. One of the better free breakfasts of the hotels we usually stay at. My wife loved the omelet station. Place your order and it's brought to your table. Parking is available by valet only. Good location for walking distance to areas on Southside. Would recommend and return.

Beautiful hotel in a nice area. Restaurants and shopping all within walking distance. Our room was very nice, modern, roomy with the most comfortable bed. I would definitely stay again and recommend anyone traveling to the Pittsburgh area to stay as well.

Well kept place, close proximity to hot metal bridge and the path to the the other side of the river so we don't have to drive when going to the business side of things. Breakfasts are wonderful and staff is nice. One recent drawback however was the demand to show government ID since the room was booked at that rate. Give the real late check-in time (after 11pm) and the fact that every previous checking went without this, it kind of set the tone for the remainder of the stay

I did not stay as a guest, but rather attended a party. Hyatt House is in a great location and has a beautiful view of the river from the roof top terrace. The lobby and bar area are nice as well.

Wonderful service and excellent accommodations. The rooms are efficiently designed and the beds are very comfortable. An excellent place for extrended stays. They have a warmed pool and fitness center available, as well as a bar where one can grab a small bite to eat. (If you require more to eat, I suggest going to a nearby restaurant or ordering in.) The only real detractor is it's proximity to the train tracks. They do, upon request, offer ear plugs.

Very nice hotel. Although they say valet parking is included for $18/day, we parked in the parking garage across the street. It was $6 to park there. Depending how often you are leaving, the garage is the better deal.

Amazing hotel, good hot breakfast. Pitfal, Extra $18/day for valet service because the self serve option wasn’t available and valet fee was not communicated during phone booking. Valet quoted 5-10 minutes to return our car. Car was returned 20+ minutes later. Room was amazing!!!!

Take our review with a grain of salt. There for a hockey tournament. Nice on River. Lots of walking options for food. Don't know much else around. Valet adds cost. They were great with us and all the kids.

Pricey for what we got. Lots of room, but thin walls and bare bones. Front desk people were very welcoming and kind. Had to ask for body lotion and shower cap-- usually tablestakes for any hotel. Didn't feel comfortable for a place that wants you to feel at home. Would have lower expectations if we didn't pay so much.

The cons: It’s not bad if you don’t mind hearing everything your neighbor’s do.... could hear the people above us do just about anything- even sneeze. I didn’t sleep well at this hotel at all because of that.
The front desk was clueless when we asked if they offered late check outs- they looked at us like we had 4 heads & said “I’ve never heard of anything like that before”

The pros: The rooms are pretty spacious & have kitchens, so if you’re staying for an extended time, that is convenient. The breakfast is also good.

Overall: It wasn’t a terrible stay.... but I don’t think I’d come back... :( for the $200 I spent for a night, it wasn’t worth it.

Great location, good service, and decent price. I brought my dog, one year old son, and wife for a four day stay. It was located well in respect to the places we wanted to frequent. Transportation in the south shore area is plentiful. I would recommend it to everyone. However, the parking fee is $18 per day extra. That part sucks, all of the other elements of the stay were superb.

We had a free night at Hyatt hotels that we had to use, so despite being local we used it at this Hyatt House. It was really nice. The room was perfect, and we were lucky enough to get a river-front view. It's really easy to walk to the various restaurants and bars of Southside. Staff was super friendly. Highly recommended.

A wonderful last minute decision. Booked the room one hour out from Pittsburgh. Since I didn't have time to research, we were a little taken aback by the $18 parking cost when we'd really prefer not to have valet parking. But it turned out to be a good thing since we were able to leave a valuable in the van without worry. The service from the front desk, valet, and even Linda at breakfast, was exceptional. Loved the layout of the room, was very clean, and we even had a river view. The mattress was too firm for my hips, but I'm sensitive that way. I'll give the warning that we were in room 401 right next to the German Brew House and there was a loud hum of chatter from their patio until about 11 or midnight - and this was a weekday night. We had a wonderful evening walking around the area and a fantastic meal at the Irish Pub right across the street. Breakfast was tasty and had an omelet station (coffee was not our favorite). Overall, higher priced lodging than we usually prefer for a stopover, but a wonderful treat.

The Hyatt House in Pittsburgh was a very pleasurable experience. The customer service service was fantastic and staff were very attentive to our needs. One downside however was that there wasn't the best view from our room. Other than that our stay was very nice and I would stay at this location again.

pretty swanky hotel. Little suites with a sitting area and kitchenette. Small swimming pool, workout room with free weights and cardio equipment. Right on the water with a patio area. Breakfast in the morning with omelet bar. Bar and small plates in the afternoon. Right across from a shopping area and not far from Carson street which is all bars and vape shops.

Stayed here for the second time in three months. Great location, very walkable neighborhood in close proximity to technology park across the river, dinner options abound, paid parking is a very minor inconvenience for business travelers (but may be an issue for someone staying here for leisure). As for hotel itself - nice, clean, spacious rooms with kitchen, fridge, microwave. Very quiet even in the morning. Breakfast goes above and beyond typical continental fare with made to order omelets.

Location was good, as was the room. Not a lot of noise privacy - heard people blowing their nose next door. Literally. Only valet parking available, but they do have a garage. Just annoying since they don't actually take the cars anywhere. Pretty sure I could've handled pulling in the garage.

The hotel is located in the Southside neighborhood right next to the Hofbräuhaus beer garden. Big, clean rooms with a kitchen, plates, utensils etc. Gym is tiny with basic workout equipment.

This hotel is conveniently located next to shopping, dining, and the Southside Marina. I loved the layout of the suite, which had a kitchenette (stove, refrigerator, microwave, full set of dishes, pots and pans), dining area, comfortable sitting area, tv that could be viewed from the sitting area or bedroom, and beautiful bathroom, lots of closet space, plenty of hangers, iron and ironing board. A perfectly designed space, and beautiful river and downtown views from the suite. Breakfast was included in the room rate. The omelette chef, Derek, was charming and courteous, and made the best omelette, which he delivered with a smile. Linda, the breakfast room attendant, stopped by to say hello, and provided us with lots of helpful information about the area. Would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Great location, great services, rooms very modern. I loved the location and the feel of it, however I can only give it 4 stars because of the no option $14.00 parking and one flaw in the room... the rooms light scheme was very odd. In order to get the lights on you need to put a room key in a slot to turn the lights on. Honestly, what is gonna stop me from folding a piece of paper and sticking it in the socket 24/7.and really, no locks on the bathroom door! I also do wish that the business center was in an isolated room so I can concentrate. It is so close to the lobby and in no confined area of its own. Highly recommended for anyone with a pet, or small children. I was in South side, Pittsburgh for a wedding, and the reception was at J Verno studios less than 2 miles away... this is a guaranteed great time for anyone planning a wedding reception or have a wedding planned.

My wife and I stayed here for a 2 night weekend - visited from SLC - and have nothing but great things to say about the staff, the hotel room and location.

The hotel being on the river with a paved walking path and amidst an array of restaurants and shopping made this location perfect. The hotel room was spotless when we arrived, and the modern feel made for a very comfortable experience. Only wish there was a bath tub, but the shower was very nice. Also, loved having Directv in the room.

The best part of our stay was the friendliness of the staff. The valets and front desk staff were very helpful and warm each time we passed by. The valet staff were particularly nice and had great attitudes. My only complaint is the 14/day cost for parking, not including tipping expectations. On that end, the guys parking the vehicles really make you want to tip well. How can you not when you're greeted with such a positive attitude?

Great experience at this hotel. Probably could have given it 5 stars, but no bath tub and expensive parking was enough for the slight imperfection.
