Location, Location: Best Areas to Get a Hotel in Pittsburgh

By William Hauselberg Subscribe to RSS | August 6th 2012 | Views:


The seat of Pittsburgh’s business and cultural district, downtown offers one of the city’s largest concentrations of hotel options. Travelers requiring David L Lawrence Convention Center accommodations will find that downtown is a convenient choice. The area is compact and walkable, stretching from the Convention Center at the edge of downtown, to Point State Park, a recently renovated park at the confluence of the city’s three rivers. Travelers staying downtown can easily walk from Pittsburgh Convention Center lodging to downtown restaurants and stores. PNC Park and Mellon Stadium are located only blocks away. The Strip District, home to a bustling produce market and many ethnic restaurants, is located on the opposite side of the Convention Center, only a short bus ride away.


This neighborhood, featuring two large universities, numerous hospitals, and the Carnegie Art and Natural History museum, is home to a large student population. Located only a short drive from Downtown Pittsburgh, those seeking Pittsburgh Convention Center lodging will find the neighborhood within easy reach of downtown. Oakland’s Craig Street features a number of eateries, coffee shops, and bookstores for the traveler to explore. Schenley Park, a large municipal park bordering the university campuses, is also worth a visit.


A popular destination for nightlife, this neighborhood is located only a short distance across the river from downtown. Those seeking David L Lawrence Convention Center accommodations with plenty to do after hours might consider lodging in Southside. This densely populated neighborhood has undergone many changes over the years, with older residents of the Southside Slopes beginning to share space with younger newcomers, coffee shops, and boutiques since the mid-90s. These days the neighborhood houses more young professionals and students. The ample shopping and multitude of bars and restaurants draws those who live in other neighborhoods to shop, eat and drink.


Travelers looking for accommodations in a more upscale area should consider Shadyside. Home to many fashionable restaurants and high-end retail in a walkable, tree-lined neighborhood just adjacent to Oakland, Shadyside is also close to new developments in East Liberty. Shadyside boasts a large residential district where a mix of affluent families, young professionals, and students live side by side in a mix of Victorian residences and modernized apartments. Although Shadyside may offer visitors a quiet respite from the bustle of downtown, the neighborhood is conveniently located on the Port Authority Busway, making transportation downtown on Express buses highly convenient.

North Shore

A relatively new development and area of rapid growth centered around Pittsburgh’s two stadiums, Heinz Field and PNC Park, the North Shore is located directly across the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers from downtown. The North Side hosts many attractions of interest to visitors, including the enjoyable Andy Warhol Museum and educational attractions, such as the Carnegie Science Center and National Aviary. Other neighborhoods located beyond the edge of the North Shore are also worth exploring. The Mexican War Streets are home to a wide variety of lovingly restored Victorian-era architecture, including impressive Gothic Revival and Queen Anne homes with historic designations.
