My Biggest Problem With the Parador Inn

5 on September 27, 2014

My biggest problem with the Parador Inn was that I couldn't figure out how to live here forever. I did not want to leave. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this my first stay-- the roomy accommodations, the glamorous common areas, the gourmet breakfast and the city location. The rates are much less than the downtown hotels (even before the discount). The wifi and parking are free as is breakfast. My favorite room is the Allamanda-- a second floor suite facing the gardens. Ed is a gracious host. I made sure to walk the neighborhood some each day although I didn't have the chance to try the several restaurants on the street. This will definitely be my Pittsburgh location.

Great host, great place, great location

Really cool place, within walking distance of Heinz Field, full of charm and wonderfully decorated, with a great host! Definitely a place to return to!

Wonderful Place in a terrific city

Loved Parador and everything about it. Will be our goto stay whenever we are in Pittsburgh.

Great B&B in the heart of Pittsburgh!

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!

Close to Downtown, Excellent Value, Relaxing Stay

3.4 on September 10, 2014

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.

Great place, interesting neighborhood

4.4 on September 09, 2014

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.

Our Three Nights at the Parador Inn

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.

beautiful mansion

4.0 on September 06, 2014

Well maintained and beautifully restored mansion walking distance from a lot of things on the north side of town. The staff shared ideas of what to see and where to eat. The stadium is really close. Breakfasts were excellent! Ed accommodated my husband's dietary restrictions so well that he raised the bar for me to aspire to! Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. I'd like to come back and use the fireplace in the colder months.

Quiet/Caribbean Inn

4.4 on September 05, 2014

Electic Comfort

4.4 on September 04, 2014

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.
