I will be visiting Pittsburg, PA for the first time for two nights. I'll be going to the Rivers Casino one night and am looking for a hotel near other city attractions/restraunts. Any hotel suggestions?
The Courtyard and the Renaissance are both closer to the center of the downtown area than the Marriott is. The Marriott is on the edge of downtown and is a bit of a walk. As far as restaurants, if you like beer or German food, you're in for a treat. Beer: Hofbrauhaus at the South Side Works, Church Brew Works on Liberty Ave, Penn Brewery on Troy Hill. All of these restaurants also have excellent food. Hofbrauhaus and Penn Brewery are German restaurants. Church Brew Works offer American food. Royal Caribbean Restaurant if you like Jamaican food. The Montery Bay fish grotto is an excellent sea food joint on Mt Washington that offers spectacular views of the city. Davio's on Broadway Ave is an excellent out of the beaten path Italian restaurant which is very very authentic. Enjoy!
