Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel Review: A member of Historic Hotels of America, this beautiful 1906 building sits on the Allegheny River. Its impressive rotunda lobby area is decorated in traditional European style and features mosaic tiles, lots of marble and a majestic double staircase. Given the luxuriousness of this place, its starting rates are exceptional. The bedrooms are classic, done in brown, cream and beige tones. Dark wood furnishings give them a dignified air. The Phipps Presidential Suite is like a small apartment, with spacious living and dining areas. Business travelers are well catered to with amenities such as work desks, two-line phones, speaker phones, voice mail, data ports and high-speed Internet access. Rooms also come with CD players and Sony PlayStations. Braddock's American Brasserie and Braddock's Streetside maintain the classic look of the property. There is a nicely equipped fitness room, which is open 24 hours, and guests are also offered passes to Gold's Gym.
