Where to Stay in Pittsburgh
Tips on Choosing Where to Stay...
We will be doing all of our workshops and show in the area south of the city of Pittsburgh, called the South Hills. The main city of Pittsburgh is downtown where the 3 rivers intersect. It is 6 miles away.
We will be dancing in the suburbs south of the city, so if you would like to be located near there, you will want to search for places near the studio, find an airbnb or hotel in areas close to Carnegie, Heidelburg, Greentree, Bridgeville, Bethel Park. If I was coming in from out of town for this intensive, I would find a comfy AirBnB in (or close to) Carnegie.
A few more minutes away is Robinson, which is closer to the airport and has many airbnb/hotel/motel options and tons of places to eat and shop. There are also hotels near the South Hills Village.
If you want to stay in the city, search Pittsburgh, Mount Washington, Lawrenceville. .
If you want to stay in the country, search Washington PA. You will need a car.
here is a link to AirBnBs in the area. This is the closest and cheapest options.
This is a nicer and newer hotel. It is close to the studios. It has a pool and food. If I were coming to this intensive, and prefered hotels over airbnbs, I would stay here.
In the North Shore of the CITY:
You can get a beautiful hotel with a city view that is an 11 minute communte (45 in rush hour). The Landing Hotel is a brand new hotel on the North Shore with a great view of the City. There are a lot of things to do all over the place.
Here is the link to rent a cabin. It is located in the country south of Pittsburgh. This is a 30 minute drive from the studio, and you would need a vehical (or carpool) to get around. There are food and things to do closeby.
If you have an RV... here is the link to book a spot. If you don't have an RV, but want to rent one, here is a site. I never tried to do this, so good luck and keep us posted on your adventure. rent an RV outdoorsy.com
Rent an RV to be delivered to your RV site (that you have to rent seperately). https://rvshare.com/rv-rental/pittsburgh/pa
