Hey,
Heading east to Pittsburgh soon with my family which includes out 3yr old daughter, from Columbus. Just getting away for the weekend, and was wondering which hotels to consider that are close to downtown but aren't too pricey. I understand you get what you pay for, but I'm not willing to spend $250 a night. My price range is $100-150. Once again, I'd like to be located as close as possible to the city, so its easy for us to get up and get around town. Thanks for any input!

My parents (from Cincinnati) always stay at the Best Western Parkway Center Inn in Greentree when they come to visit. It's not a palace, but it's close to downtown and close to the highway, so it's easy to get around.

If you don't mind bidding on a hotel on Priceline.. do that. I got the Marriott City Center for $65 during the week last year when the going rate was $269. Also go the Residence Inn near the airport for $50 instead of $120.
I am now in California and when I first came here, I bid on hotels. I went down to 2.5 stars and ended up with the Country Inn and Suites.. nice hotel and got it for $42 a night instead of $130.

My general rule is to bid on 2.5 stars (I try to stay 3 and up though) and up and you will get a nice hotel.

Go here and see what the hotels MIGHT be. Once you bid and they accept it, your card is charged for the whole duration.

The new hotel in Bakery Square; Spring Hill Suites, has special introductory rates from $159. While it's not downtown, it is much better located if you're planning on going to the Pittsburgh Zoo, the Carnegie Museums, Phipps Conservatory or any of the parks in the East End.
