The Fairmont Pittsburgh may feel thoroughly modern with its LEED certified gleaming glass architecture, floating lobby staircase and modernist gas fireplace, but it stays true to its Steel City roots with industrial-inspired décor and a collection of local art. Floor-to-ceiling windows invite the city in in guest rooms with mod cons like iPod docks and 42” LCD HDTVs. Indulge in internationally inspired (yet regionally sourced) eats at Habitat restaurant followed by interesting vintages at Andy’s Wine Bar. Then work it off in the state of the art gym, equipped with saunas and steam rooms, followed by a massage at the spa.
In the Area
Covering 16 blocks of hip gallery spaces with up to 1,500 shows per year, Pittsburgh’s cultural district carries the artistic torch of native son Andy Warhol. Pay homage to the king of pop art at the Andy Warhol Museum, and take part in the scene at historic Market Square with its funky boutiques and public art displays. Grab some old-school grub at the 142-year-old Original Oyster House(Pittsburgh’s oldest restaurant) or opt for modern gastropub fare like hanger steak with jalapeño vinaigrette at Meat & Potatoes. And to walk off the indulgences, the Three Rivers Water Trail in Point State Park offers miles of trails along the Allegheny.
How to Get There
I stayed here this past weekend as I was attending commencement at CMU. My stay here was very comfortable. Mark Chambers, the concierge at the hotel was extremely helpful in arranging transportation to and from the hotel and helping me with a few other requests. Very professional and kind in every interaction.
The hotel is well-situated in the downtown area and close to many Pittsburgh classic food places like Primanti Bros and Prantl's Bakery (get the burnt almond torte!).
If I'm ever back in Pittsburgh, I'll be staying here again!
This was very disappointing, service average, food lack luster, atmosphere average, over priced with limited selection. Everything ala-cart. Eat n Park would be better. Won’t go back. Potatoes were frozen yuk, French toast was good, good bacon, the rest of it was average or below. Would not go back.
I am actually still here unfortunately but experienced service from the front desk that was so unnecessarily rude that I had to report it. First off, when you stay at other Fairmonts you come to expect a certain standard of service and quality, and this did not live up. There are no water bottles in the room, and I saw a family had gotten water bottles from the front desk. So, logically, I also asked the front desk for a bottle of water along with a couple of my family members. The front desk guy became quickly frustrated and said not to ask for any more water bottles and that we have to use the disgusting water machine in the ice room if we want to drink water. I was appalled. I do think it’s relevant to mention that this seemed racist, since the white American family who asked for water right before us was treated quite nicely and were even given extra bottles. I’m appalled- shame on you, Fairmont Pittsburgh!
Also, they say bathrooms are how you judge the cleanliness of a place, and the bathrooms here are filthy. There’s dust and grime all over the floor.
Excellent room, gym, sauna facilities, superb service - all in all we had a wonderful stay. The one bedroom suite was impeccable and super spacious! Very comfi beds! Good breakfast at the restaurant. Plum location in downtown!
One of the best hotels in Pittsburgh. You can't beat the location, so convenient for walking or using an Uber it's only a few minutes away from everything. The view from our room was great and everything was clean. The restaurant was amazing for breakfast!..we definitely ordered too much food. We only spent one night since we were in town for Cher concert, but it's definitely worth a trip back even if you don't have a big night planned.
