Weddings, Family Gatherings, and Meetings at the Embassy Suites Pittsburgh Downtown

Pittsburgh Moms Blog is thrilled to partner with Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown to bring you information about the many experiences they have to offer.

The Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown is quickly becoming the go-to venue for boutique weddings of up to 175 guests, family gatherings, and corporate events.


Every great wedding begins with a great venue – a place that both the couple and their guests love. Weddings these days are no longer merely an isolated Saturday afternoon. They’ve become an extended weekend event. Couples must consider their celebrated union as a way to connect family and friends in a reunion of people living far apart. Whether local or distant, treat yourself and your guests with the luxuries and comforts of the Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown for the entire weekend.

Before and after the big day, wedding guests can make the most of the Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown and the city. Like all Embassy Suites, the downtown Pittsburgh location’s happy hour is a guest favorite. This is no regular happy hour. Its an evening reception, featuring two hours of complimentary cocktails including healthy snacks for adults and kids. Guests are also sure to love the Embassy Suites’ complimentary, cooked-to-order breakfast, from 7:30 am to 10:30 am daily. 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.

Other hotel amenities include: a saltwater pool, 24 hour fitness center, unique city views, sky bar and lobby, and dinner at hotel’s restaurant, Elevation, a modern American bistro.

Located in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh, wedding guests have access to the cultural district, Pittsburgh’s Convention Center and theaters, Market Square, Pittsburgh’s sporting venues, including PNC Park, Heinz Field, and PPG Paints Arena, much of which is walkable.

Couples know that happy wedding guests that have been spoiled by a great hotel in a great location make your special day even more so.

The Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown occupies the top ten floors of the historic Henry W. Oliver building, designed in 1910 by the world-famous Daniel Burnham. The completely renovated, modern, spacious, upscale hotel housed in this architectural masterpiece makes good on the age-old wedding theme “something old and something new” by virtue of the building itself.

The bars, restaurant, happy hour, fitness center, main lobby, and pool are all located on the 25th floor. Once it’s time for the main event, the wedding reception, the wedding party moves to the second floor. Guests love this transition to another part of the building, because it’s now a special place, just for the main event, the wedding reception. The ballrooms and meeting space on the second floor boast their own unique city views, including newly remodeled Mellon Park. The reception area outside of the ballrooms greet guests with soaring ceilings and elegant decor.

And, then the ballrooms can be decorated for your special night of celebration and dancing. Guests know that they’ve arrived and the wedding begins. Its unveiling at that wedding reception gives the sensation of finding another hidden treasure within this iconic building.

Finally, the couple and the guests will appreciate that every room in the Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown is a SUITE. A suite means that families can stay comfortably in one room, without the hassle of trying to book two adjoining rooms, the safety concerns of having two adjoining rooms, or paying for two adjoining rooms. Even if you don’t travel with a family, the suite is a great luxury. The Embassy Suites 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.

With guests traveling from miles around and local guests looking make a stay-cation out of a wedding, the Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown can provide the perfect venue for your wedding weekend.

Family Events

In the past several months, I organized a milestone birthday for my mother (who’s very happy I didn’t tell you which milestone), a retirement party, and a baby sprinkle (second baby, so not a shower, but a sprinkle). I sure wish that I would have known about the Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown for these events.

Mothers, you know how difficult these birthdays, showers, reunions, bar matizahs, and parties are to plan on top of the other layers of responsibility within your families. Leave it to the Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown to help. These ballrooms don’t just make great wedding receptions. Gatherings of up to 175 guests are easily accommodated. Have the family event at the Embassy Suites to accommodate any out of town guests and for any local guest who’d would like to have another drink and not worry about getting home.

With two ballroom sizes (up to 175 guests and up to 100 guests), the Embassy Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Downtown can accommodate many sized family gatherings, whether an afternoon luncheon or an evening gala.

Meetings and Events

 With the two ballroom sizes and a large conference room, the meeting space at the Embassy Suites can easily accommodate any business function from meetings, conferences, lunches, seminars, and socials.
