Make the Fairmont your base during your time in Pensylvania. The skyscraper building is close to the Cultural Quarter.

Kimpton Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh

(4 stars)

This design-forward property is part of an international pet-friendly collection, yet offers plenty of nods to local culture in its decor. 248 guest rooms include statement pieces, such as oversized tufted Kelly green headboards, bedside chandeliers encased in golden birdcages and ceramic penguin desk lamps, plus Atelier Bloem Bath products and Frette linens. The Commoner is the Kimpton Monaco’s industrial-chic US-tavern-style eatery and the Biergarten is its seasonal rooftop haunt. There’s a fitness centre, loaner bikes for guest use and Mini Me Milk Fridges for nursing mums available on request.

The Oaklander Hotel, Autograph Collection

(4 stars)

If you prefer a more suburban setting, choose this Autograph Collection hotel, named after its district (Oakland). It may be a little further away from the city’s nucleus, but is the briefest of strolls from neighbourhood bars, restaurants, the Cathedral of Learning and Heinz Memorial Chapel. A maritime blue colour scheme prevails throughout, with elements of monochrome in bathrooms and public spaces. 167 bedrooms have blackout drapes, laptop-friendly workspaces and eco-friendly practices (such as LED bulbs, recycling and environmentally-friendly cleaning products). Spirits & Tales is the hotel’s restaurant and there’s an in-house library.
