I'm with you, I absolutely love the northwest. Do you plan on living in the city or suburbs? I really don't think you can go wrong either way, they are both awesome cities. Pittsburgh does have amazing architecture and neighborhoods, but so does Portland.

Tough decision

Have you visited Pittsburgh? If I were you I would take a trip out there, and then make a decision. Also, look at the real estate prices. I'm sure you can get a lot more for your money in Pittsburgh, and it sounds like you have a better job.

Do you have a lot of friends and family in the PNW?

We did visit Pittsburgh and Portland. We think Pittsburgh is beautiful. But Portland is much fresher and newer. The house price in Pgh with good school district is not as low as we imagined and the property tax is very high. The job is better but the working environment is worse.

I think you've pretty much answered your own question. It seems like you're leaning towards Portland and want people to make a case for Pittsburgh. Why? Go with Portland since it seems to be what you want.
