Rated 1 out of 5 by NCJeff Was unimpressed.
I'm sorry to say that this was not a good experience. From the check-in where I had requested a room with two beds a week before my stay and they placed me in a room with one bed, to having to hear a member of your staff dropping F-bombs in close proximity to guests was unacceptable. For a hotel that charges as much as you do, I expect better. I think your general manager needs to manage.
The reception staff did a good job, and they were pleasant and attentive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Carmine Very Nice Hotel, Helpful and friendly staff
Staff from housekeeping to waitpersons were friendly and helpful. Facility attractive and well appointed. When I told the desk that I needed a roll away for my grandson they immediately switched us to a two queen bed room. At formal banquet on Friday night my grandson did not like the cheesecake. The server on her own initiative brought him two giant chocolate chip cookies.
The only negatives were the construction work and strangely, the room did not have a dresser.
Lots of easy ways to get around Pittsburgh from Station Square and the Sheraton.

Rated 2 out of 5 by michigan1973 Overpriced for the quality
My reservation said rooms came with refrigerators, they did not. Also I had requested a rollaway bed. I did not get one, but I was OK with that until I got my bill and see they charged me for one. The parking situation is horrible and the hotel should be more upfront about the $21 a day for parking. It would've been nice to spend the evening at the hotel bar but the bartender was not friendly and the cost for drinks were overpriced. The hairdryer in the room was cheap and didn't work. But the bell hop was great and I enjoyed the free shuttle service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JoeR71 Bad experience
I stayed at the hotel and used a conference room while I was there. In my hotel room, the eletrical outlets didn't work and I needed to blow dry my hair without a mirror outside the bathroom. The shower had terrible water pressure. In the conference room I was using, there was a water leak coming down from the ceiling. The paint started to bubble and the hotels response to fixing it was simply putting a divider wall between us and the leak.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ghostfern Good amenities, needs renovation
The rooms and corridors need new carpet, wall resurfacing, new paint, and a thorough cleaning. Cobwebs hung from the ceiling near the elevators. My room's carpet was stained and dusty along the baseboards. The lack of a refrigerator, and the very small ice bucket, conspired against keeping any food cold. The heater/cooler was noisy, kicking on and off all night. The hotel was so warm I had to have the cooler on in February. Guests were noisy after 11 pm. This hotel is used by the military for personnel and families prior to relocation for duty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LMW14209 Great location but lacks Sheraton standards
So disappointed in this past stay, We stay here every time we come with our pets. As the hotel is being renovated, it was clear we were put in pet rooms....definitely see need for paint an improvement....carpet horrible. Shared the floor with a church group of 50 rooms with such language... security,,,,cops...not up to Sheraton standards. We did receive a complimentary breakfast but really???? My daughter and sons had to listen to evening noise and bad language!!!! Why woud Sheraton not put them out....instead, honest payers pay the price????

Rated 3 out of 5 by L2785 Front Desk & food
Several times, I inquired at the front desk about things I was planning to do in between conference sessions. While the staff was pleasant and tried to be helpful, they were not knowledgeable enough. I asked about walking in the area and was told there really wasn't a good walking place. However, a quick search online showed the Monongahela River walk directly behind the hotel. I asked about getting to the Warhol Museum. Was told by one person I could take the hotel shuttle. I inquired the next day about booking the shuttle, only to be told it doesn't go there, but they'd be happy to call me a taxi. I asked if there was mass transit there, was told no. On my walk to the Carson City Shops, I passed the T, which does, indeed, go near the museum. I called and told the desk that the coffee bags had not been replaced in my room, and could i have one for the next morning by 6. They said sure, yet I awoke to no coffee and when I left my room at 8 for a meeting, still had not received the coffee. At the NSPA conference, I indicated I'm vegetarian. During lunch on Wednesday, I reminded a waiter and 25 minutes later was delivered to the table a dish of rice and mixed veg and an under cooked 1/2 sweet potato. The food, overall at the conference was dismal and almost unpalatable with far too few choices for those who do not wish to start the day with a plate full of grease and fat and carbs but who do need enough food to make it through the day. Very disappointing.

Arrived at midnight. Told front desk I needed a 7:30AM wake-up call, would prefer a king bed and access to the club lounge. Upon entering room, room had double beds but given the time of night I didn't bother going downstaris again to complain. Was woken up at 8:45AM by my work colleague who had been downstairs waiting since 8:30 to pick me up to attend meeting. Scrambed to wake up, take quick shower, etc and we were late for meeting. AS well, stopped by loung on the 15th floor where I stayed and card did not work. What a disaster!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JZ48 Disappointed
Room was standard, prices too high for value. Fast Track restaurant terrible. Eating area uncomfortably cold. Fodd in buffet on Friday night and Saturday morning was not up to Sheraton quality. Soup from buffet was only warm, Clam Chowder ordered off the menu was cold and should have been named potato soup. Meat not properly prepared. Chicken fingers were only warm and the pasta was cool and pasty. Saturday buffet, eggs were cold and mush, french toast cold. The only thing going for it was the coffee was hot and the toast was nice!

Rated 3 out of 5 by steveku2 Lack of attention to details
This hotel is old and showing its age, and no one seems to care. One of the 4 elevators was out of order, and there was no indication it was being fixed. Hand dryer in the men's room - out of order. Even a light in the restaurant - out. A cracked and peeling lampshade in my room, which was quite small. The hallways are dark and dingy. No rooms available until 3:00, and even then the room I had reserved wasn't ready. This hotel certainly isn't a dump, but it needs a major makeover and a staff that pays attention to details.

Rooms were dirty - carpet was filthy and wallpaper needed scrubbed. Workman started every morning at 7:00 AM and woke us up. Not sufficient staff at front desk waited in line twice. I think I was supposed to get a discount for the parking as a SPG member but I kept getting different answers from staff and received no discount. Rooms were booked together as one party but we were given rooms that were not even on the same floor. Acted like a discount hotel should have been a discounted rate.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PGHSPG This hotel is in unacceptable condition
While I recognize that renovations are in progress and ongoing, Starwood should really remove the brand from this place until they are complete. The noise from freight trains passing a few feet from the window throughout the night, combined with noise from connecting rooms and from the hallway is more than anything I've encountered at a full-price, full-service hotel anywhere. The construction noise starts before 7AM on other floors, and travels through the ceilings/floors. The un-renovated floors and rooms are dimly lit and shabby.
The club lounge staff members are very nice, but hampered by equipment maintenance issues.
I recommend avoiding this property until the renovation is complete, or at minimum until a renovated room can be guaranteed on the reservation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Richards28 28th Anniversary
Even though we had read the unfavorable reviews, after speaking to the reservations specialist we decided to stay anyway. The hotel was very busy when we arrived with a large wedding party and a class reunion. We got checked in quickly but I was disappointed that upon check-in the staff did not even acknowledge it was our anniversary since the reservation specialist noted it on our reservation. When staying at other hotels they always do a little something extra for special occasions, not the case here. The Club room was nice and the view was lovely. We were given a Club room right next to the wedding party so when they finished the reception downstairs they brought it upstairs at 2:15am. Someone else must have reported the noise/music as well because we heard security once then after another 25 minutes I called down and they did send security up again. When I mentioned at checkout that we had been disturbed for over an hour and putting us right next to the wedding guests might not have been a great idea, I only got an "I'm sorry". No compensation was offered. I will think twice about staying at a Sheraton again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Survival1 Love this Hotel
The Staff, rooms, and restaurant, are always the top of the line and cater to the needs of the competitors. My husband and I travel a lot around the country competing, we have found the Sheraton to the be a home a way from home.
The staff is warm, friendly and professional. Starting with yo9ur staff, Beverly and Shirley at the front of the dinning room, Jamie and Kenny and all the other wait help we find to be exceptional and cater to the competitors ever need. And you must understand we are difficult group to deal with.
Kim the main floor expeditor and housekeeper will always go out of her way for us.
The front desk staff are always welcoming and keep things moving along in a professional manner.
We look forward to making our reservation for The Master's Nationals Competition in July.
Look forward to seeing everyone there again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ZMan2000 It was OK
There was construction in the Lobby, but the hotel did a good job of working around it. I found the overall hotel condition to be somewhat messy. We were on the 5th floor. There was packing material near the elevators during our entire stay. The entrance from the side parking lot was dreary. The room was generally clean and well appointed. I found it odd that the bathroom had no hooks or towel bars. In addition, the bathroom lacked an exhaust fan, so it was always fogged after a shower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DavMin Hard to get a refund!
Horrible customer service! I had to cancel my reservation 2 months before my stay. The hotel charged me for one night and refused to reimburse me! I had to call 4 times all the way up to corporate customer service. The staff at Sheraton Station Square said that they had a verbal agreement with the promoter not to give deposits back and could not provide me with any proof of it!
When I provided my reservation agreement which clearly states that the deposit is refundable, they quickly changed their tone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pinkbrittles Conference stay
The staff was unresponsive and inefficient. I had to repeatedly a ask for things, and the concierge gave awful food suggestions. The hotel also seemed unable to effectively find a taxi for four when we left. The catered food for the conference was terrible as well. The hotel also charges for internet access. If you want to connect more than one device to wireless, like your computer and your iPad, you have to pay $10 a day. I think that's just ridiculous. The only highlight was the breakfast buffet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Adel14 Hotel under construction
This hotel has history, and was under construction, and understaffed. I am sure once it in finished you will be fine. My room lacked a frig, had a shell, I could not check in until after 4:00 because they were so busy and I had to hold my luggage for 3 hours in lobby (arrived at 1). Ran out off toilet paper, only had one roll from day one, we opted for the "green clean" so the maid never came in. In those cases, you should at least start out with 2 rolls. Just a thought. Thanks though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2WeekGuest Much Improved
This hotel is much improved over my stay 2 years ago which was very disappointing. I was in a renovated room on the club level. It was very comfortable and setup perfectly for a business guest. The ladies in the Club Room were lovely particulary Rochelle and Marie. The only downside this trip were the bellmen. 3 stood around talking as I struggled with bags. The young female conceirage was very responsive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JB123 Overall good.
This hotel is being upgraded, and the results are showing in a positive way.
The staff is excellent, and the Club Lounge is exceptional.
It's location near a walking trail and the T station are helpful.
The Station Square complex leaves a little to be desired. There are many vacant store fronts. So, entertainment generally does require a T trip.
The negative for this hotel is the parking. The garage is really, really expensive; and there aren't any other options available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Emerald2014 Sheraton July Pittsburgh
Ensured the SPG number was added at front desk but was not given the SPG floor until I went down to change rooms. The first room was RIGHT next to an elevator and the entry of the room was filthy with a large black stain that ran about 8 feet into the room and a rancid odor. Not a great first impression. The next front desk lady moved me to 9th floor with the correct room. Maid was excellent!!
May consider opening up for breakfast at 6am and not 6:30.

Check-in Staff told me that I had to go to Bell Station to arrange delivery of my bags to my room! Hotel Front Desk should do this, not the Guest! And after waiting for more than 10 minutes for a Bellman, who actually NEVER appeared, I had to take my OWN bags to my room, along with my daughter in a wheel chair!

Booked last minute. Did not want to drive the 1.5 hours home. Sheraton 15 minutes from where we were playing. Starwood Elite Member. Used Points. Check-in staff were awesome! Gave us Club access, which was really convenient. Used for a snack and for breakfast. Outstanding! The hotel appeared recently updated. Very nice! Parking was not as bad as expected, so another bonus! $12.00 over night. Nothing but good to say! That is why we use Sheraton!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Esmeralda45 Would never stay here again
The room looked old and didn't have 2 pieces of furniture that matched. We had to ask for a roll of toilet paper but, the cleaning people were very nice. We asked where the soda machine was and they said they didn't have any. We had to go to the bar and get a class of soda and carry it up to our room. We had the breakfast buffet that was very expensive and all the food was cold. There was only one bathroom open in the lobby and it was filthy. There was a competition going on there and all the people were sitting on the floor on both sides of the hallway. So you had to walk in between them to even get to the bathroom.
We went to a wedding there and that went well. The food was delicious and the wait staff was very nice and accommodating.
I had stayed at this hotel about 5 years ago and it was beautiful. I couldn't believe I would ever see a Sheraton this bad.
