Introduction to Pittsburgh

3.0 on April 15, 2014

We really enjoyed the gas fireplaces that you can turn on and off with just a press of the button. The size of the bedrooms are so big that you don't need to spend time in the common rooms. However, the first floor dining room, library and living room/parlor are tempting too. If it were a bit later in Spring, the sun room and garden would have been good places to relax, as well. We were glad that the decor wasn't frilly. The location was nice: close enough to walk downtown, but far enough away to be quiet and comfortable. We aren't dog lovers, and the two dogs were very well behaved. I gave the dining an "okay" rating, because the orange toast wasn't very interesting and the crust was a bit tough. The parfaits were a nice option, but again "so-so" just banana and yogurt with a bit of granola. The lemon bread was lovely: warm and moist. The coffee was decent.

We'll stay here again

Had a wonderful weekend at the Parador Inn. Exceptionally friendly owner and staff. Beautiful and fascinating house and furnishings. Our room was huge! And although the bed looked old-fashioned, it was a very comfortable mattress. The breakfasts were delicious, and we enjoyed having a glass of port in the common rooms in the afternoon. We walked to the riverfront, walked to the Warhol museum, and had the weather been warmer my husband would have walked to a ball game. We plan to stay here again.

Special stay in Pittsburgh

4.0 on April 08, 2014

My husband, 13-year-old son, dog and I just got back from our first trip to Pittsburgh, during which we had the good fortune to stay at the Parador Inn. Located in a fun and funky neighborhood within walking distance of downtown. Off-street parking. Impeccable service. Clean and cozy accommodations in the pet-friendly carriage house, which sits just behind a beautifully restored mansion. We enjoyed our daily full breakfast in the mansion. Enclosed courtyard where our dog could play while we relaxed. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an alternative to all of the chain hotels.

Lovely B&B, gracious host

4.4 on April 08, 2014

Our reservation was handled very professionally. The house was in great shape and full of interesting furniture and decorative objects. Our room (Bird of Paradise) was roomy, clean and comfortable. We particularly liked having a working fireplace in our room. Ed, our host, made sure we were well taken care of. He pointed us to where we could find extra glassware, a corkscrew, and cold bottled water. Our breakfast was tasty and ample, and we were even able to add a couple of in-town guests to our table. Ed provides a guest pass to the nearby YMCA, which would have been really convenient if we had had more free time on this trip.
