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.

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 6:30am-10pm, 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.

Enjoyed Most: The deal we got through Travelzoo!...the location was perfect for what we planned to do and DID do! Very nice desk staff we had upon arrival and prior, on the phone....Jess and Kourtney.
Other Comments: If we had paid full price, I would have been more bothered, than just slightly annoyed, that we could get a newspaper no where in the hotel. I asked at the front desk, and was told (not Jess or Kourtney) that maybe the breakfast area had one...I checked there...none either. This was at 7 AM on Monday. Also, the lotion in our bathroom was completely out...toilet was running when we arrived.

Enjoyed Most: The location is great! We walked to Starbucks, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and to dinner. It was a short drive to Shadyside for breakfast and to downtown, as well.
Other Comments: Check in was very easy. The room was nice. The bathroom smelled like it had been wiped down with a dirty rag which was gross. We enjoyed the pool. Could hear housekeeping knocking on the doors at 8:30am, which I don't understand when checkout is at noon.
