My wife and I found this gem by chance and we're glad we did. If you truly appreciate the architecture prior to the industrial revolution this is a great place to visit. The rooms are spacious and offer the details that you wont find in modern homes. We ended up staying the "Birds of Paradise" room which faced the street on the second floor. There is a bit of road noise at times but not enough to bother us, after all its in a city not the country. The rooms are clean and offer what you would expect from a modern hotel. We really felt at home while staying at the Parador. Ed is a great host and gave great recommendations for dining. Overall we were very pleased with our stay and hope to make this a yearly occurrence! PS. Be sure to try the melon parfaits for breakfast, they are delicious!

The website for this property is particularly good at describing the rooms. Making reservations is relatively easy, followed by very cordial communications. There were no surprises or disappointments at all--large rooms, complete amenities, free off-street parking, and several modestly-priced restaurants nearby. The staff offered much-appreciated suggestions and advice about directions, area attractions and services. The inn is within an easy one-mile walk to the "Point Park", football and baseball stadiums and a giant casino. The other guests were pleasant as well.

My wife and I stayed at the Parador for two nights and had a great time. It's within easy walking distance of Steelers stadium and just beyond, an easily walkable/bikable path to points downtown and beyond. Interesting neighborhood in transition with great local places to eat. The decor at The Parador is over the top, breakfasts are excellent, and the owner and his helper have lots of suggestions. The garden is very lovely and a great place to sit and chill. Highly recommended overall.

Touring Pittsburgh on our own was pure pleasure. The location of the Parador Inn added a great deal of ease to our time there. Close to the stadiums, public transportation,the rivers and parks and museums make this a good choice.

We stayed at the Parador for 2 nights over the Labor Day weekend. Ed is a wonderful innkeeper. We had been booked for quite some time when a couple wanted to use the Parador for their wedding. Ed called us to ask if we would have a problem with that. How thoughful - we did not. We just felt bad showing up all hot and sweaty with all these well dressed folks enjoying the common area. We had 2 rooms that ajoined with a sitting room between the bedrooms/baths. How wonderful to be able to sit with our friends - not on a bed. The decorations are fabulous. The beds comfortalbe. The breakfast declicious. Off street parking is included - a very nice benefit. The Parador is within walking distance of ballbarks - football and baseball. The Warhol Museum. The National Aviary. Great place to use as home while visiting Pittsburgn.

Not only the stylish tasteful decor, with it's slightly old world charm, but also the knowledgeable, helpful, patient staff, and the wonderful location make this I will return to, I will recommend to anyone going though. It is a gem, and I don't say that often, or lightly.

The Parador Inn, Ed, and his staff made our stay in Pittsburgh a great experience. What a wonderful place this is. Warm, friendly, comfortable place to stay. After a few days we started calling it home. There are many common areas inside and out where people can gather to chat or relax in a quiet area if you wish. Breakfast was great, it set the tone for each day. Ed took the time to see that we were all comfortable. On the same block are restaurants that serve good food at reasonable prices.

Took the family to Pittsburgh so that they could see their first Steelers game and found the Parador by searching Google. Proximity to Heinz Field can't be beat but beyond that, the room, service, breakfast and hosts were truly outstanding. Ed and Ty are wonderful and made our stay one to remember. The B&B is absolutely beautiful and you can tell that the staff works very hard at upkeep. Our room was perfect for me, my wife and 2 daughters. Ed makes a great breakfast. Don't waste your money on a chain hotel - they can't touch the personal service that you'll get at the Parador.
