Holiday Inn University of Pittsburgh Center Hotel Review: Chains that were once associated solely with economy and practicality have come a long way, thankfully, over the years. This particular property is both pretty and pleasant, beginning with its high-ceilinged lobby paneled in light-colored wood. It is centrally located and offers great value to all types of travelers. The 251 guest rooms and suites are decorated simply, but they are by no means stark. Muted tones complement furnishings such as tasteful bed lamps and subtle wood headboards. All are equipped with the standard line-up of basics, such as cable TV, coffee makers, hair dryers, voice mail and data ports. Rooms on the private key access Executive Edition Floor come with free DSL, robes and access to the Executive Lounge and a special business center. The indoor swimming pool has a resort feel to it; potted plants and the surrounding tiled half-walls add to the ambiance. The fitness center is basic but suffices. Meeting and event facilities can host receptions of up to 600.
