Renaisance or Sheraton in Downtown

by yecats13

My husband and I are traveling to Pittsburgh for the first time next weekend and are looking for a centrally located hotel that we could go to restauarants/bars in the evening and walk back. I've been recommended these two hotels. Price not really an option, just really looking for convenience. Have heard that Sheraton may have lots of train noise???

Re: Renaisance or Sheraton in Downtown

by ladyfisher

If you have it narrowed to these two Go with the Renaisnace. It is in the Cultural District and with in walking distance if many major attactions. It has lovely views of the three rivers and PNC park. I stayed there last Feb with my company for a week of extended meetings(even through we are all from the area) We walked every where expect when we went tothe steelers training building did we get on a bus. I highly recommend this hotel sevice is outstanding as are the rooms. The Sheraton on the other hand is a nice place but in Station Square and you have train tracks on both sides of you if you can hear them I don't know. Station Square itself is a must see but central to downtown and with in walking distance no. Station Square is a Mall of sorts filled with shops, resturants, bars, clubs etc. Very nice and up scale. You will have a view of it from the Renaisance but you have to cross the Smithsfield bridge and go about 1 1/2 miles to get to it. They do have a ferry that runs from Station square to downtown and to Pnc park. "The gateway clipper Fleet" If you are looking for a nice night out they also offer dinner cruise's down the river with dinner and shows. If I can help any more let me know. Have a great time in our city.

I agree completely w/ Ladyfisher... The Renaissance is *outstanding* and close to everything. Plus, the staff are wonderful. You'll have a 'toot of a time'... (Sheraton's have become kinda icky!)

Travel Tips for Pittsburgh

UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH

Pittsburghese

by mikelisaanna

Longtime residents of Pittsburgh speak English with a unique accent called Pittsburghese. As a result, a Pittsburgh native can usually tell if someone else is from Pittsburgh within the first few sentences of a conversation.

In Pittsburghese, ee is pronounced i (creek becomes crick, steel becomes still, and the two professional football teams in Pennsylvania are the "Stillers" and the "Iggles"). Ow and ou are prounounced like ah (flower becomes flar, downtown becomes donton, shower becomes shar, hour becomes ar, etc.).

Another highlight of Pittsburghese is the word "yins", which is substituted for "you" ("Yins goin' dawn the crick ta go fishin'?", "Yins gonna watch the Stillers game?"). An exception to this rule is when the word "you is used after the words "would" or "could" - one then would say "woodja or coudja" instead of using the word "yins".

A key part of Pittsburghese grammar is that the phrase "needs to be" is always shortened to just "needs". Examples are "The hoss needs painted," instead of "The house needs to be painted", and "The grass needs cut", instead of "The grass needs to be cut".

And, for some reason, Pittsburghers pronounce the capitol city of the USA as "Warshington". They also warsh their hands.

PIRATES

by mtncorg

The Pittsburgh Pirates are one of the oldest major league baseball franchises dating back to 1882 when as the Alleghenys, they were a founding member of the American Association - known as the ‘Beer and Whiskey League’ as opposed to the puritan-minded National League. The team then jumped to the older National League as the Pittsburgh Alleghenys in 1887. The ‘Pirate’ moniker was earned when the team successfully stole a star player away from the now-rival American Association in 1890. Their former league denounced the move as ‘piratical’, something that the ball club made fun of by renaming themselves as the Pirates, for the 1891 season.

The Pirates have five titles to their history - 1909, 1925, 1960, 1971, 1979 - winning the National League pennant four additional times. Not the strongest National League franchise, for sure, but then the Chicago Cubs, which has been in the National League 17 years longer than the Pirates, have only two World Series titles to their credit. On the other side of the State, the Philadelphia Phillies, dating to 1883 as the Quakers, have one lone World Series title and six National League pennants to their credit, though it appears their second World Series is very close at hand. That said, the pirates are not a very competitive team presently. They single-handedly were responsible for this year’s Milwaukee Brewers reaching into the post-season playoffs by winning only one of 14 games against the Brewers and getting outscored 94 to 41 - I had the privilege of watching the Pirates go down in one of those 13 games, 11-2. Pittsburghers were heard to say that they get tired of out-of-towners tell them about what a nice ballpark PNC is, because they know they are not talking about the exciting play of the Pirates but the view of downtown. And they are right. Sit in the upper deck of the park along the left field line and watch out over the skyline and the river, bringing you attention back occasionally as the Pirates attempt another belated rally.

The museum of Natural History features 15 actual dinosaur skeletons - not casts - of 14 different species from the Jurassic period.,

The museum of Art contains one of the world's most prestigious permanent collections of traditional and contemporary art, featuring French impressionist and post-impressionist paintings from Van Gogh, Monet and Degas.

And for you pop culture fans, the Andy Warhol is on the North Shore. It is the most comprehensive single-artist museum in the world.
