Exceeded our expectations

5 on August 20, 2014

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.

Ultimate B&B

Wonderful stay

I stayed one night with my girlfriend and it was wonderful. Ed was really friendly and accommodating and the dogs were so cool. The African-themed room was beautiful, and breakfast was excellent. Would stay again in a heartbeat. I only wish it was longer. Will do it again. Thanks again. Woul suggest to anyone that wants to stay overnight near the North Shore.

Excellent B&B

The Parador is a really beautiful space and my room was quiet, spacious and pretty. The bathroom was fabulous. The staff was friendly and helpful. I can highly suggest this b+b over conventional hotels in the Pittsburgh area. It was also right in a friend's neighborhood and close to the light rail station.

Adore the Parador

5 on July 20, 2014

Parador gets a 10. The Allamanda suite, large sitting room and huge bedroom and en suite bath, overlooks the side and rear garden. We were very comfortable there for our 3-night stay. The Parador's decor reflects our host Ed's love of the Caribbean and is a bright, cheerful counterpoint to the Victorian architecture of the house. The late 19th century home has beautiful millwork, stained glass and other features to admire while you are there. Read a book on the porch overlooking the tropical garden or find Razor, Ed's black lab, for a game of toss-the-tennis-ball. The inn is very convenient to free public transit, close enough to downtown to walk if you prefer, and the off-street parking of the inn is a big plus. Ed's breakfasts are delicious and served between 8 and 10 am. A wide choice of restaurants are close by for dinner. Thanks, Ed. We will return.

Great place to stay!

The rooms were charming and spacious. Breakfast was good. I loved the banana pancakes. The Inn was a short walk to public transit, which was great. So much better than staying in a hotel.
