Great Hotel BUT... – It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at referer.us/8/GoodHotelDeals They usually have some pretty good deals on there!
No more luxurious than any less expensive chain hotel. – I can't believe we paid twice as much money to stay the Wyndham Pittsburgh when it has half the service of a Holiday Inn Express. The only thing this hotel has that any run-of-the-mill hotel does not is beautiful lobby decor and a $17 a day valet parking fee that is not mentioned until after you present your credit card at the front desk. Valet parking is pretty much mandatory considering it is impossible to find street parking. Way to work the system Wyndham! I don't have to pay for valet parking when I go to see my grandma in the hospital, I shouldn't expect to pay for it when I am paying a high price as a guest at a so-called luxury hotel. All the amenities are the same as any other less expensive chain hotel from the room layout to the soaps in plastic baggies. My husband and I were both disappointed, but only because we expected much more. We checked in on Friday evening and our card was charged $100 over the price of our stay. We were told there was nothing the front desk could do about it until Monday when our bank would be open. Instead of a view of the open city as presented on Wyndham's own website, our view was the side of an ugly concrete building. The room was also much smaller than we expected however, the bedding was very comfortable. I am not saying that this is a bad hotel, all in all it was decent and the staff are polite, but it not what we paid for. We expected much more class, but what we got was average quality. This would be good for maybe an overnight stay during a business trip and only if your company is paying for it. Don't shell out money to stay here for a long weekend if luxury is what you are looking for.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Hotel chain located in suburbs and near airports caters to business travelers with spacious rooms featuring Internet, workstations and data ports.
I've come to expect more than this. – I stayed at the Wyndham during January 2003 during a business trip. The accomodations were average as was the service. For the most part efficient, friendly enough, and adequate. Not anything extraordinary or to write home about.
When I asked of the staff member if a particular service was included in room charge, the response was it was certainly not, "This IS the Wyndham!"
The restaurant was quite slow to open for breakfast. However lunch was quite a highlight. Good service, good food, and a pasta bar.
I not sure how this place got Nominated for Best Luxury Hotel. The Wyndham should not be confused with a luxery hotel, but it is more than adequate for business travelers.
