Bottom Line

The 399-room, upper-middle-range Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square benefits from its Station Square location, which is directly across the Monongahela River from many attractions in downtown. It’s a nice property with great views of the river and city skyline and its distinctive, sharply angled atrium features a full-service restaurant and bar. The 30,000 square feet of function space keeps the hotel hopping with business functions. Rooms are comfortably spaced and generally clean and well-maintained, although some guests have reported minor housekeeping and maintenance issues. A free shuttle to downtown Pittsburg is a nice extra perk. A stylish alternative could be HYATT house Pittsburgh-South Side, which can have lower rates though its location is farther down the Monongahela River.

Scene

Busy chain hotel with a diverse mix of guests attending meetings and sporting events

The soaring atrium in this hotel creates a distinctive ambience that’s different from many other hotels in the area. The sharply angled atrium includes several stories of windows at the entrance with industrial-like black pipes and exposed ductwork along the ceiling and walls. It’s a cavernous yet inviting space that features a round bar, full-service restaurant, and more seating arrangements than anyone would care to count. Polished marble, hardwood, and bright blue carpet with large, snowflake patterns cover the floors of the space, made up of many shapes and colors. The large inventory of meeting space stays busy with various functions, and the large hotel can get hectic on football weekends and during tournaments at the nearby soccer complex. Some guests like to stay here simply to enjoy the impressive views of the river and city skyline -- armchairs are placed in front of floor-to-ceiling windows in the hallways, so guests can linger and take in the view. Others are drawn by the location that offers easy access to downtown Pittsburgh and the surrounding waterfront area. 

Location

On the waterfront at Station Square, directly across the river from downtown attractions

Map of Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square Hotel

The hotel is situated on the waterfront of the Monongahela River at the popular Station Square. It's directly across from the heart of downtown and its major attractions. Station Square has several restaurants and shops that are only a two- or three-minute walk from the hotel's front doors. The Monongahela Incline and Gateway Clipper Fleet of river tour boats also are about a three-minute walk, while the Station Square subway station is a five-minute walk. The Highmark Stadium soccer complex is a six-minute walk. Multiple downtown sights can be reached via car or the hotel shuttle in about 10 minutes, including PNC Park, Heinz Field, CONSOL Energy Center, Strip District, Point State Park, Rivers Casino, and David L. Lawrence Convention Center. Duquesne University, Carnegie Mellon University, and the University of Pittsburgh are also an eight- to 12-minute drive. Public transit travel times generally are at least double the driving times. Pittsburgh International Airport is a 25- to 30-minute drive, or over an hour via public transportation.

Rooms

Pleasant and comfortable but with some minor housekeeping issues

Guest rooms at this Sheraton are tasteful if not quite upscale. Decor include soft gold walls, padded headboards, and patterned carpet. Textiles are in soft neutral shades, such as the beige-and-rust-colored striped drapes and white bedding. Armchairs are either in butterscotch leather or blue fabric. Dark-brown, matching furniture includes nightstands and dresser/desk combos with glass tops. Desks have media plug-ins and office chairs. Pittsburgh-theme photos and prints decorate some walls adding just a hint of color. Standard amenities include free bottled water, flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, and electronic safes. White-tile bathrooms are average size and feature spacious wood vanities with light granite tops in front of wall-spanning mirrors. Basic shower/tub combos are partitioned with a curtain and toiletries are provided.

At 310 square feet, Traditional Guest Rooms are comfortably sized and come in king or two double bed options. Deluxe River View rooms are 345 square feet. Suites range from 476 to 676 square feet and include a sleeper sofa and living room area.  Many rooms feature impressive river and city skyline views, but some overlook the atrium. 

Most guests report their rooms to be clean with comfortable beds, but some have complained about minor housekeeping and maintenance issues, such as inadequately cleaned rooms and noisy heating units. Lower rooms are also more apt to hear noise from the nearby trains. Club Guest Rooms include access to the exclusive club lounge that offers free breakfast, hors d’oeuvres, beverages, and office supplies. Wi-Fi is only free to SPG members who book directly through Starwood websites or apps.
