    Best inexpensive hotel I've ever been to. Hip decor, comfy and clean rooms, beautiful back patio with firepit. Def coming back if I'm in Pitt again!

    Stayed here with a team for a tournament that was going on at the Sports Complex down the road. (First Night of Flight).  We had 2 suites which were identical.

    (+) Very clean with a nice decor.  Probably renovated in the past year or so.
    (+) Fridge and microwave in the suite
    (+) Indoor hot tub and heated indoor pool.  The pool was a maybe 10x20 ft large.  
    (+) Continental breakfast
    (+) All the employees were helpful and very accommodating.  We had 5 adults per suite and they were more than happy to supply us with extra towels, shampoo, and a air mattress.  
    (+) There's a diner named Kings right out front.
    (+) Cheaper since it's 20 minutes away from downtown Pitt.

    (-) It is indeed 20 minutes away from downtown Pitt.  

    All in all, I had a very pleasant stay here.  We ended up paying a little under 70 a person for 2 nights which is great for the area.  I'm giving it 5 stars for the Price Value of a new hotel with a friendly staff.

    This place is pretty clean but i thought the rooms would have fridges but it didn't. I didn't bother to ask the front desk about that. It's a few minutes away from downtown Pittsburgh which is a plus. My company put me here and i guess they didn't know about this place but it was really close where i was going to work. I don't like the location but i had no idea where to eat when i arrive. Everyfood seems like it was 20 minutes away. Wish my company put me near the mall which has many restaurants to eat at. They have a decent breakfast in the morning and there is free wi-fi.

    Loved this hotel!  Its brand new so the rooms are clean, modern and comfortable.  Some of the rooms have fridges and microwaves as well.  

    Like other Fairfield Inns, there is free wireless internet and breakfast.  In the business library, printing is free too!  There was a wide variety of breakfast options:  waffles, breakfast sandwiches, yogurt, cereal, etc.

    Because this hotel is about 15 minutes away from downtown Pittsburgh, the price was cheaper than other hotels, but if I came back to Pittsburgh, I would stay here again and again!

    We had an excellent experience this weekend at the Fairfield in in Neville Island.  My expectations were definitely exceeded.  The room was very clean, and had several amenities including ipod dock, 2 plasma tvs, hairdryer, coffee maker, and fridge.  The indoor pool is small but just what we needed for a 22 month old son.  I used the fitness room - which has a few treadmills and some weights. The free breakfast was delish - so many options including waffles, oatmeal, sausage, eggs, cereal, etc.  More than we could ask for!  The staff were so pleasant and accommodating - we were truly appreciative.  We will be back on our next visit to the burgh :)

    What a great deal. It is a new Marriott on the Ohio river. We got a river view room which was nice. There isn't much going on surrounding the hotel, so don't plan on walking to any restaurants or bars. We chose it because of its proximity to the Carnegie Science Center.

    We stayed here one night for a family funeral.   It is right off I79 which makes it easy to get to not having to wander through town getting on to the highway.  The view from our room was spectacular.  The room was clean and comfortable.  The staff was friendly and the breakfast buffet was good.  All in all a very good experience and would stay here again.

    I've stayed here a few times while visiting and I have been quite pleased.  The rooms were comfortable and they staff was generally friendly and welcoming. This last visit, however, I will say that on Sunday there were no towels in the swimming pool and it looked like a tornado might have touched down in the exercise room. Minor issue when compared to the good stuff - great scenic view of the river out the window! Pleasant stay!

    ***This Fairfield Inn was similar to the one I went to in a Cleveland suburb; though the shower was fine and there was complimentary wi-fi and parking, the lack of a good A/C unit was a big negative considering it was a hot summer week in Pittsburgh***

    This Fairfield Inn feels very remote (good or bad depending on what you are looking for).  It is about 10 to 15 minutes away from Pittsburgh in a town called Neville Island.  It is near a bridge and some water (not the best looking water but still water).  The area kind of reminds me of small Ohio towns from my childhood.

    My first stay at a Fairfield Inn was on this same trip (at one in Cleveland).  I was not a huge fan of that one.  This one was more or less the same.  It seemed to be a newer facility so it did not have any off-putting smells and the rooms were nice enough.  There were still issues though.

    The pillows were not that great; the mattresses were fine (somewhat comparable to a Courtyard).  A/C was an issue.  Though the temperature knob went down to 60 degrees, the room never really achieved a good, cool temperature.  This was the case at the Fairfield in Cleveland too (at least the bed at this location was closer to the cooling unit).

    The bathroom was significantly bigger compared to the Cleveland one.  There was enough sink counter space to put stuff (which was an issue at the Cleveland location).  The towel rack was not in a convenient location though (too far from the shower).  The shower was good.

    In terms of amenities, there was free wi-fi, which was a plus.  They also did a complimentary breakfast including cereal, whole fresh fruit, juices, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, and a waffle station.  The fitness center was 24/7 and it was comparable to a Courtyard Marriott fitness center in terms of size and equipment.  The fitness center towels were not as good as Courtyards and the towel hampers were not in a convenient location (they were not really hampers but little boxes underneath a shelving unit that held the towels).

    There is a little complimentary internet and print station at the lobby, which was also a plus though the printer did not do a good job printing out tickets for United (the barcode got cut off).

    Service was good.  The staff seemed pleasant and helpful.

    Weekday prices are reasonable enough.  I am not sure what they charge on weekends, but I imagine they might be lower since this is probably not a big vacation area.

    I opted for this Fairfield since it was part of the Marriott brand.  The price was also better than nearby Courtyard Marriotts, but there is a definitely drop off in quality.  Considering that it was hot in Pittsburgh, the lack of a good A/C unit was a big negative and would be reason enough to pay the extra amount for a Courtyard Marriott.

    Parking is complimentary and it is easy to find an open space.

    I was ignored by Kay Zimmerman at front desk.  She clearly hates her job and hates all Marriott customers.      The next morning Kay refused to give all the guests plates to eat breakfast.   I got my bags and left the hotel.    Avoid this hotel unless you want to be treated like garbage.       Worst hotel service in the entire world.        Shame on you Marriott for hiring an angry and emotionally unstable employee to represent your brand!!!!?!!!!

    A solid place to stay on the river at Neville Island with plenty of rooms overlooking it & the bridge.  Sometimes you'll hear traffic, but it's a low susurration & rather soothiing.   Updated decor & clean.

    There is a firepit outside beside the river & is a wonderful place to unwind.  They also have a small pool & fitness center, but I've never used those.

    They have a "convenience store" to purchase snacks & sundries.  There is also a small business center where you can print directions etc...

    Breakfast is included and is a full breakfast (eggs, bacon, pastries, waffle-maker etc...)  There is coffee & usually a fridge & microwave in the room.

    This location is not a far drive from anywhere in Pittsburgh & it's easy to get dahntahn or to Kennywood...!!  It's also close to Old Economy Village, which if you're looking for some interesting history of an early "planned community" that's low key, this is the ticket.

    Note that there is only one restaurant (King's) which is not open late & not much else around so if you're hungry eat in the city if you're a late arrival.

    The staff is always friendly and helpful.

    The boyfriend and I flew up to Pittsburgh, last minute, for the Steelers playoff game.

    We usually stay in Marriott hotels, so this trip was no different. Apparently, we got really lucky getting our room though, when we were there, the Fairfield was undergoing some pretty serious remodeling and floors 2 and 3 were shut. The front desk guy told us they were 100% booked, but only 35% of rooms were full because so many were shut.

    Everyone who works here seems to be really nice and helpful. They were apologetic about the remodeling and any inconvenience. The 4th floor had clearly not yet been remodeled a s it needed it. One of the lampshades in our room looked like it had been smashed against the wall a dozen times. There were no liners in the trash cans. The toilet wasn't a fan of flushing. The shower curtain was mounted so high, it was barely long enough to keep water in the tub.

    I love that Fairfield has free breakfast, so we definitely took advantage of it. Mmmm waffles. I was a little bummed they had sausage patties and not bacon, though.

    Overall, I'd stay here again, but only once the renovations are done. I'm positive the score would be higher after the remodel.

    Pros: This hotel is very clean and nice. It seems they have changed the carpet or made some type of updates. The beds are comfy. It's nice that it's right along the river.

    Cons: They use box heating/cooling units, and it was kind of hard to figure out how to get a consistent room temperature. Also, there are hardly any places to eat real close by and not any nice areas to walk around.

    The vestibule between the entrance's two sets of sliding glass doors smelled of foul body odor... there were several sports teams who were staying there that same evening, but the smell was there the several times that we went in and out of the doors.  The lobby was nicely decorated.... although I didn't sit down, the chairs  looked comfortable.

    The hotel provides a nice makeup remover towelette which is great for late arrivals, so I don't have to dig through my luggage to find mine before bedtime.  They also provide generous sample sized Pantene shampoo and conditioner which is a great plus.

    The pool was a nice average size, including a motorized chair to help disabled people get in and out of the water.

    The hot tub had very powerful jets, but wasn't very hot, and didn't have a way for us to increase the temperature.  The no slip seats are very rough...  it will not be a big deal for anyone wearing shorts, but definitely if you're just in a bathing suit.

    The service checking in wasn't phenomenal, but our view more than made up for it.
