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.

The location is excellent to enjoy the Oakland area of Pittsburgh. The hotel is almost across the street from the Cathedral of Learning, and it is just a close walk to the Phipps Conservatory and Carnegie Museums. Also, there are many fine restaurants within close walking distance.
