Pittsburgh Hotels

Pittsburgh Hotels 


Heading to see a game in June against the Giants.  Looking for suggestions of hotels to stay near the stadium.  I will be bringing an 8 yr old boy and 14 yr old girl along so anything related to those ages is a plus.

Marriot.com. Perfect hotels for a family right on the Northshore. Spring hill suites and a residence Inn.

The Residence Inn is right across the street from PNC, and is easy to access. It's a great place to stay for the whole ballpark experience. And the efficiency rooms fit a family well.

It depends what your budget is.  The hotels around the stadium would be a fantastic experience but you will pay $170- $200+ on a lot of game days.  It may be cheaper to stay at a hotel near the airport and rent a car.  If money is no object then the hotels around the stadium or the Westin (downtown) would be good choices.  The visiting team will probably be staying at the Westin.

Cutch and Hurdle stayed at the Westin during Piratefest.  Much easier to get an autograph from them there than at Piratefest.

The Omni Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh is very nice too.  It is very new - opened maybe 2 years ago.

If it were me, I'd go with the Residence Inn on the North Shore as you walk out the front door and you are just 30-40 yards from the main entrance at PNC Park - Honus Wagner statue etc.

The Reds stayed at the Omni William Penn last year (nice older downtown hotel).  That's where the Aroldis Chapman issue happened.

I'll second the Residence Inn.  Stayed there for a game last year and it was great.  Awesome location.  It's a little pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

Thank you for your responses. Very helpful. It will be our first time in the area. Should be an interesting trip with the family in tow.

Spring Hill Suites are great and across the strees to the outfit enterence. As said, they are costly, but worth it. Have stayed there a few times for Pirate games, and also for Steelers games. The plus is parking. You get a spot in the lot, so you can tail gate right there and don't have to worry about an extra 20-30$$ in parking.

Re: Pittsburgh Hotels 


It would also be an option to buy Lexus seats (behind plate, includes buffet and food durig the game) and stay in a cheap hotel.

In either situtation you are looking at spending hundreds, while the Pirates would not pay their closer to save the game you are going to.
