Hotels - might be giving up a good secret here but I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express which is just over the river/ 6th street bridge by PNC Park. Like a 10 minute walk. Good prices *and* an excellent free breakfast and new renovated rooms as of last year. Good value and a bit of exercise or take the free shuttle. Personally I enjoyed the walk back by the ball diamond and for this year - there was a boxing match held on the bridge Cuba VS US or something like that .. very interesting night life. Oh yes a pool, free wifi and a few pokemon stops too.
