Map & Directions

Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), home to 12 airlines including American and Southwest, is a 25-minute drive away from the hotel. Taxi fare is estimated to be $45 per person one way. For a fee, the hotel’s staff can also arrange transportation between the airport and the hotel, if needed. If you’re looking to save a few dollars and have a lot of time, for only $3.75 per person one way, take the 28X Port Authority Bus just outside of Door 6 in baggage claim toward downtown and Oakland. The ride is a little over an hour and once you get off at Forbes Avenue at Bigelow Boulevard, it’s a five-minute walk to the hotel.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Cushioned in the heart of Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood, Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center is a 15-minute drive to downtown Pittsburgh. Oakland, home to many well-known hospitals and universities such as Pitt, CMU and UPMC, is full of intellectual, international and cultural vibes. 

Within the property, a high-ceiling lobby and wood panels throughout offer a blend of modern and contemporary décor. The newly renovated rooms and suites feature gray, green and blue tones and all have plush beds with pilllowtop mattresses for a comfortable sleep. If upgraded to the Club Level, you'll get extra perks, such as access to the private club lounge, continental breakfast, complimentary beverages and hors d’oeuvres Monday-Thursday. All guests can enjoy diverse American dishes from Bridges Restaurant and Lounge, the hotel’s on-site dining option, or room service. 

Take advantage of the hotel’s complimentary local shuttle, available daily from 6:30 a.m.-10 p.m., within a three-mile radius to places such as Carnegie Museum of Natural History or the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Other amenities at the hotel include complimentary Wi-Fi, a heated indoor pool and a fully equipped fitness center. 

Drive less than 20 minutes to Mount Washington for stunning views of the city. Catch a ball game with the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park or cheer on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field, both a 15-minute drive. The property is a perfect stay for families visiting those at neighboring universities and hospitals or exploring the culture of the area.

The walls are thin. Both nights we had neighbors who spoke loudly and it felt as if they were in our room. Luckily they quieted down by 11pm both nights. Otherwise, the location is quiet- no street noise.

Safes are not provided in every room. They expect you to use a safe deposit box at the check in desk?!? They left all decaf coffee pods in the room but never left any stir sticks/creamer/sugar in the 3 nights I stayed. The walls were paper thin. I mean paper thin!! 2 nights in a row I heard the couple next door getting "busy". The walls were so thin that I could hear everything the woman said during their romps as if she were saying it in my ear. Seriously. It was ridiculous. If I had paid regular rates for the room I would have been so PO'd.
