  • Cheap Hotels?

    Hey guys coming from Trenton, NJ for a game June 8th. Just wondering if there are any cheap hotels in the area of 5 miles of PNC Park. We are just staying one night, so, as long as its not ghetto, we don't really wanna spend more then $100. Help me out!

    Check Greentree. It's just on the other side of the fort pitt tunnel, it has a holiday inn, best western, and a radisson. There's also a Days Inn and Hampton Inn on Banksville Rd (first exit after going thru the Fort Pitt Tunnel) You should be able to get into one of those hotels for under $100. Check hotwire or hotels.com., maybe one of those sites can get you into a nice downtown hotel for under $100.
    LETS GO BUCS!!

          How about a Holiday Inn, Hilton, or a Radison Inn

            We went last year for the Reds series in August and had some problems finding a decent room. There was nothing to be had in the Golden Triangle for less than around $150. We ended up at the Hampton Inn in Greentree for about $120 a night. Cheap hotel rooms close to downtown are pretty scarce. If you have a car, I'd try looking into staying near the airport, in Monroeville, or even Washington.

              for those telling me hotels.com that doesnt help. It doesnt talk about the area of the hotel, and personal experiences. I want to thank the gentlemen who suggested staying by the airport, since we will have a car. How far is the stadium from the airport?

                The airport's right around 20 miles away from downtown (The Golden Triangle). I also know there's a bunch of cheaper hotels in the Washington area (about 30 miles away).

                  Info on Hotels/Motels, etc.

                  I have successfully used www.hotwire.com and stayed in some nice places within 5 miles of PNC Park in the Greentree area, west of the city. The last time I did this, I stayed at the Radisson Greentree for about $50. This was 2 years ago.

                  Even though the airport is further than 5 miles northwest of the city, you might get a good deal at places there. Also, if you are driving, Monroeville, about 15/20 miles east of Pittsburgh at the PA Turnpike exit might get you a good night's stay.

                  For cheap eats, check out the Strip District. http://www.neighborsinthestrip.com/ This is similar to the Italian market area in Philadelphia. It is also home to the Heinz History Center which houses the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum as part of its collection. Even though you are probably not a Pittsburgh sports fan, the memorabilia here is outstanding. http://www.pghhistory.org/Default.asp

                  I have also attached a link to the city owned parking garages in downtown Pittsburgh. Evening and weekend parking is a flat $5.00. I park at the Ft. Duquesne & 6th St. Garage directly across the Clemente Bridge from PNC Park. Due to its close proximity to the park, if parking here, you should plan on arriving one to one half hour before game time. There is a pizza shop, gyro shop and other restaurants right on 6th Street that are inexpensive places to grab a bite. http://www.city.pittsburgh.pa.us/pgh..._Schedule1.pdf
