I have at the Best Western Parkway Center Inn numerous times over the past thirty years. When I was younger this was my dad's hotel of choice in Pittsburgh because it is close to downtown (just 2 miles), reasonably close to the airport (15 miles), and relatively inexpensive (rooms starting at $89, compared to about $150 downtown).
The hotel is recently remolded, so definately not too bad. Each of the 117 rooms has free wired internet access, a small TV, coffee pot and clock. Guests here can make use of the free shuttles to the city and airport, free continental breakfast, free cocktails from 5 to 7pm, fitness center and heated pool. Also, children under 18 stay free.
There is a cafe and lounge on the first floor called Sam and Tony's Cafe. Back in the early 1990s I met a few members of the metal band Skid Row here. They must have stayed here for a concert or while between concerts. They were playing video games and being harassed by teenage girls.
We were traveling to Pittsburgh for our first Steelers home game. We had originally booked a room elsewere only to find they had a bad bed bug infestation upon checking in & inspecting matterss. So after an 8hr drive from Virginia, it was 12am at night. We were told be someone outside the BP about this place. We got to the check in desk & the clerk was very friendly/helpful. Since it was after 12am, and her hearing our horrible experience why other motel she gave us a discounted rate. Room was very clean & had everything we needed. Loved that they give Bath & Bodyworks soaps/shampoos/lotion in the room. Great experience overall!
Hotel Taxes were an Unexpectedly High and Unpleasant Surprise added to $75-95 a night single room. I travel often and recognize cities seem to love to tax hotel rooms to pay for stadiums, but this tax is one of the most steep I've ever encountered. BEWARE!
Unique Quality: Breakfast Buffet with a nice variety of simple items to eat and FREE OPEN BAR during Manager's Happy Hour for guests.
This nice, convienient hotel was under reconstruction & refurbishment when I visited. Sadly my room appeared to be out of the 1970's.
