Have you decided what to give the Love in your Life for Valentine’s Day yet? If not, you are in good company – because neither have I. However, I do know of one gift that I would love to give or receive. How about a carefree overnight mini-vacation away from stress, and not too far away from home? A quiet evening in at The Embassy Suites by Hilton Downtown Pittsburgh can be a very therapeutic and thoughtful Gift to Moms, Dads, or anyone in the family who needs a break. or a romantic night (away from kids).
This past Holiday Season, I got to experience this new upscale hotel, located directly across the street from Pittsburgh’s beautiful Mellon Square Park, which provides breathtaking views from the top floors of the historic Henry W. Oliver building, an architectural masterpiece created by world famous Daniel Burnham.
I had visited the Henry Oliver Building before… but never as an overnight guest. The Beautiful Artwork that adorns the halls is Exclusive to the Hotel, and contains both hidden surprises and about as much amazing history in each painting as the building itself.
No kids, no cleaning up – just me and the husband… and a Complementary Happy Hour! After we were settled in our room and had a hot shower, we convened on the main floor for some all-inclusive enjoyment. All registered guests of the Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown are welcome to attend and indulge in a FREE happy hour featuring both *Adult and Family-friendly beverages and snacks. (*ID required for Adult Beverages)
We had a bigger appetite this evening, so we decided to sit down to a formal meal…you know, the kind where I don’t have to get my own food, or anyone else’s! It’s been a while since someone asked me what *I* wanted to eat! (Did I mention no kids tonight?) Elevation is the formal restaurant open before, during and after Happy Hour offering appetizers, entrees and desserts to satisfy any taste. The Menu is very unique featuring exclusive dishes you cannot find anywhere else. Tip: when ordering dessert, ask about “The Hummingbird”.
Embassy Suites by Hilton with its unique sky lobby, provides an upscale experience for both business and family travelers at a competitive price and is the only full service, all-suite hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. All of the 225 accommodations offer a spacious suite with a separate living area, one or two bedrooms, a queen sofa bed, a work desk, a 49-inch HDTV, a mini-refrigerator, a microwave, a coffeemaker and wet bar.
The Embassy Suites understands the hassle that comes with finding time to prepare (or order) and eat the most important meal of the day, especially when you are away from home. The items in the complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast are all freshly made and replenished from 7:30 am to 10:30 am, allowing 3 hours to eat at your leisure. The two-sided buffet offers one side of family style breakfast classics, and another side with a beverage bar across from an Omelette Station for more made-to-order goodness. It was so nice having such a vast array of foods, and not having to tailor my choices to the little mouths that normally pick from my plate.
There is a time when we all need to stop, indulge and take care of ourselves, including our bodies. A good workout followed by a gentle swim can get your juices flowing, and body feeling great. The Embassy Suites accommodates guests with a rejuvenating salt water pool directly across the hall from a 24 hour access fitness gym.
Because the Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown is so conveniently located in the heart of Pittsburgh, attending events or happenings around Downtown, Station Square, The Strip District or the North Shore are ALL within walking distance. So, whatever your plans before or after, checking in at the Embassy Suites by Hilton is a sure way to ensure you do not have to worry about the traffic and travel home, and sleep safely… with amenities. Make a night of it! Or, a weekend!
So, if you are still thinking about what to get that special, overworked person in your life as a Valentine’s (or any occasion) gift, offer the gift of sanity with a night-off of responsibility and a night-in at The Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown. Where else in Pittsburgh offers all this luxury at non-luxury prices? Show them you love them by giving them the gift of Personal Relaxation Time!
