Nice retreat

4.2 on February 26, 2015

The Parador Inn is a nice escape for the winter blues. We went on a groupon. It was worth every penny. It's definitely different from the typical mansion bed and breakfast. It is antique meets Bob Marley. Interesting concept.

Awesome first stay

Ed and his staff were amazing! My husband and I stayed the weekend at the Parador after seeing it on Groupon. And we could not have been happier with our stay. The staff was friendly and knowledgable about the area and the home. Breakfast was hot and fresh and tasty. Ed has he black labs RJ and Razor, they make it feel more like home for us. Thanks again for a wonderful weekend. we will be back again.

Excellent place and great location

3.6 on February 24, 2015

The rooms were very nice and clean. Loved the fireplace in our bedroom. Aslo, breakfast was absolutely delicious. The place has a wonderful location if you are visiting Pittsburgh, and it was a great value (especially in wintertime). The owner was nice (not overly friendly...but not in your face which was good!)

Beautiful room

We had a wonderful stay in the Bird of Paradise room. It was cozy comfortable and beautiful. The common areas of the house are gorgeous.

beautiful B&B

Beautiful B & B, first time we stayed there and would recommended it to anyone looking for an unique travel experience.

Great B&B in Pittsburgh

4.6 on February 19, 2015

Loved this B&B. The owner was very nice and the breakfast was delish. The B&B was beautifully decorated in Caribbean flair. We had our room on the third floor which was our mistake in picking since we did not do stairs well. The double room was great with a lovely living area and a nice bedroom. The small details that Ed puts into his B&B make this B&B stand out above a lot of ones that we have visited.

Will Be Staying Again

My wife and I recently stayed at the Parador Inn over Valentine's Day weekend and we were both extremely pleased with our stay. It was very inviting and located close to a lot of great restaurants and attractions. Coming from a couple that does a lot of travel, I have to say that I don't think we've ever been this relaxed on one of our stays anywhere else. We will definitely be planning another visit as soon as we can.

cozy getaway

5 on February 16, 2015

My fiancé & I only stayed 1 night for Valentine's Day and really enjoyed ourselves. We walked 1 minute from the Inn to a delicious sandwich shop & used Uber to get around Pittsburgh. The breakfast in the morning was tasty & the service was fantastic! I'll definitely be back and hopefully have the time to stay longer.

Beautiful Mansion Great stay

4.6 on February 13, 2015

The mansion is beautiful and Ed paid attention to detail in adding to the restoration of this urban gem adding a perfect touch of Caribbean charm. We stayed in the Oleander very romantic with the fire pace and window seat. Tired the mansion and would love to come back and try a different room. Walkable to the casino and stadiums as well as good fine dining. Eds breakfast was delicious.4 star b&b!
