Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.

  • My husband has family on his father's side buried here so we visit often. We find it to be a nice place to walk. Just remember where the car is parked as this cemetery is huge!  more »
  • This cemetery is actually a history tour, with such gorgeous mausoleums, statues, crypts and tombstones. Many well known figures from Pittsburgh's past are buried here, and the grounds are very large ...  more »

  • Beautiful park setting, mature trees, woodland plants and shrubs. Artful tombstones and mausoleums. Nonsectarian, but does have a Jewish section and a Chinese section. Serene and peaceful.
  • One of the greatest cemeteries in the country. Lots of interesting crypts with recognizable names like Heinz and Carnegie. There's a pyramid crypt too.
  • Fantastic service in the office when you are trying to navigate your way around.
  • Doubles as a park. Great place for walks and bike rides. Safer than general neighborhood streets for kids to learn to bike, etc., with the exception of some steep hills. Great place to experience some nature without leaving paved road. If you're looking for hiking trails, the cemetery connects to the Frick Park down near Reynolds Street.
  • A very interesting and beautiful cemetery. I have found this to be a great place for a quiet walk . Being in a place with so much history makes it easier to put your own life in perspective.
