Entertainment, Food, Fun, Cruises, and Excitement all right outside the hotel door -- Station Square!

Station Square is Pittsburgh's premier dining and entertainment destination with unique specialty shops.

The property celebrates its rich cultural and industrial history by renovating and maintaining its attributes like the Landmarks Building, which was constructed in 1900 to house the Pittsburgh Terminal Train Station.  Today, the seven-level historic building is home to Pittsburgh iconic restaurants The Grand Concourse and The Gandy Dancer and also offers 80,245 square-feet of office space.

The Freight House Shops, which was once a train shed, has been transformed to boast its old world charm in the setting of one of the restored railroad buildings.  Housing over 20 unique retailers, shoppers will find everything from Pittsburgh souvenirs, to novelties from around the world including toys, fashions, jewelry and cigars.

At the heart of Station Square is Bessemer Court, which was designed to commemorate the city's celebrated steel history.  Here, you can find Hard Rock Cafe and the state-of-the-art Fountain at Bessemer Court with its Waltzing Waters Liquid Fireworks Show of hundreds of multi-colored water jets all choreographed to music and soaring up to 40 feet in the air

Take a sightseeing tour of the city with one of many different modes. Set sail aboard the Gateway Clipper Fleet as you cruise along Pittsburgh's three rivers. Quack yourself up as you take a journey in a World War II amphibious vehicle on land and water with Just Ducky Tours. Or experience the wonder of futuristic transportation on a Segway in Paradise Tours. Plus you can head to the top of Mt. Washington on a historic cable car trek on either the Duquesne or Monongahela Inclines to take in the breathtaking views of city's skyline.

A world-class facility, the airport has been recognized for meeting travelers' needs. It has been ranked number one by Condé Nast Traveler for food, shops, comfort, amenities and ambience. In addition, OAG Worldwide and market research leader J.D. Power and Associates have named it among the top airports in customer satisfaction surveys.

A model for other airports around the world, the terminal was designed to ease pedestrian traffic to the gates.
