    Looks beautiful from the outside. But don’t let that fool you. Walking in the fragrance tells you it is old (almost smells like a badly managed nursing home). The property is furnished with well worn furniture and carpeting. Our room (a semi-suite) on the 5th floor was hot, terribly uncomfortable with outside noises the whole night, and to top it off, the elevators were out of order. We do not recommend!

Our semi-suite on the 5th floor was hot, and suffered from unending noises both in-house as well as from the surrounding area. Do not recommend!!!

    Ideally located for a visit to the U. Pittsburgh/Carnegie-Mellon/Carnegie Museum area of Pittsburgh, you can have an enjoyable stay here, as I did. The building is an architectural landmark, the service staff people were friendly and gracious, and there is a lot to see within walking distance. The building includes a swimming pool, basketball court, fitness facilities, and a bowling alley. The queen suite I used was comfortable and had a sitting room; it was modest and not fancy; the temperature could be controlled. I did not find it smelly or noisy. The dining room on the first floor and the grill on the bottom floor were excellent. The place seems underutilized. If you were mainly going to be downtown or in the convention area (about 4.7 miles away), it would not be as convenient as someplace there although still only a short cab or bus ride away. I spent four nights and members of my family spent two nights and liked PAA, The dining room and grill was closed on Sunday and Monday; there are a few nearby restaurants. If you are interested in exploring the area, you can get a useful map at the U. Pitt Alumni Center across the street.

    A beautiful building with classic common areas but the overnight rooms leave a lot to be desired. We stayed in December and could not turn off the steam heat in the room and the front desk was no help. Had to open the windows to balance the temperature and then had to deal with street noise. Lots of space in the room but the furniture was stiff Queen Anne style and the small TV was across the large room. Small, tight bathroom but good water pressure. The bar and bowling alley in the basement seemed modern and the staff was very nice. Interesting to read the comment from January 2012 as one elevator was out of service and the other was shut down for a time while we were there. Free parking was a plus. Location is convenient to Univ of Pittsburgh and the Soldiers Memorial is across the street. In the end, glad we tried it, but would not go back.

    Great building but not ready for overnight guests. Rough shape. Nice people and great location but overnight stays, in my humble opinion, should be eyed carefully. Temp issues etc.
