Victorian with a twist

3.2 on December 16, 2014

We recently had an occasion to stay in Pittsburgh for the night and chose the Parador Inn because of its Victorian nature. It was fun to be near the things we were going to attend and loved the gas fireplace and clawfoot tub. It was a bit chilly though and the fireplace had a hard time keeping it warm.

Great Value would stay again

Overall very good experience. Loved parking situation. Warm atmosphere. Gorgeous house and furnishings in common area were awesome. Disliked the bed was not attached to the wall or headboard so it moved at inopportune moments. Breakfast was less than expected. Expected a big american breakfast and received small portions and very limited selections. Food was good but not what I expected.

Wonderful 1st visit at The Parador

This was the first time that I had stayed at a Bed and Breakfast hotel, and I must say, we had a wonderful time! I booked this trip for Thanksgiving weekend, as well as my boyfriends 30th birthday. Ty and Ed both have outstanding email communication, as I arranged everything from overseas! They are quick to respond, as well as assist in any way possible. I had them make us dinner reservations at Hyde Park (Which the food was amazing). I also emailed asking if my sister who is local to the area, could drop stuff off to be in the room when we arrived. Ohh, and they also allowed us to check in early. And lastly while there, I asked about the taxi service, and Ty provided us the information. When we arrived at the house, Ty greeted us, and gave us a tour of the house. The house is beautiful! We also got to meet Razor and RJ. We stayed at the Bromeliad room. When we arrived in the room, the staff had hung the banners, placed the balloons as well as the other 30th knickknacks in the room! Ed makes an awesome breakfast! Everything tasted amazing! Also he was very accommodating and made us togo bags on the last day of our stay as we had early flights. The staff is extremity friendly and has a since of humor! It made the stay feel more like home. I will definitely be looking up The Parador next time I am in town visiting with family!

Amazing location near food, shops, and recreation and yet so quiet you don't remember you are in the city!

Above & Beyond

4.8 on November 23, 2014

We stayed here for our anniversary. As Ty checked us in, we talked about our dinner plans. He recommended an amazing restaurant. As we finished dinner at said amazing restaurant, they brought us a dessert to celebrate our anniversary. But, we never told them we were celebrating; we surmise Ty called ahead. Talk about above & beyond! Breakfast was wonderful. Decor is authentic & gorgeous.

Rivers Casino Getaway

Used the Inn as a base to explore Rivers Casino and The Strip in Pittsburgh

Great Sta in the 'Burgh!

4.2 on November 19, 2014

The property was BEAUTIFUL. The manager TY and the owner, Ed were both very friendly and accommodating. Our room (the BouganVilla) was gorgeous, very nicely appointed and comfortable. The neighborhood is very clean and safe, very convenient location to the Casino and Heinz field. Make sure you don't miss breakfast, the Honeydew parfait was an unexpected treat! We will most definitely be staying at the Parador again on our next trip to Western PA!

Outstanding as always!!

4.0 on November 16, 2014

The Parador and its host Ed Menzer are both outstanding. The Inn is restful and beautiful and welcomes you with a wonderfully relaxed environment. Ed is a superb host and makes you feel like you are a valued friend and not just another guest. The support staff is also extremely friendly and knowledgeable. An outstanding experience that has us coming back again and again! the review website would not let me check the "outstanding" boxes or the rating would be higher. Caren and Bud Hearne
