The familiar triangle of downtown Pittsburgh is especially beautiful at dawn. The city seems still for once, and almost vulnerable under the gentle sunlight. As the metropolis begins to wake, a sparkle emanates near the 6th St. Bridge, and the shining Fairmont Pittsburgh comes into view.
LEED certified and filled with the works of local artists, Fairmont Pittsburgh is responsible to the planet and homegrown culture. Rooms are fresh and modern, and offer LCD TVs, views of PNC Park, and of course WiFi.
Inspired by Andy Warhol and Andrew Carnegie, Andy's bar balances pop art and an industrial empire by way of an eclectic selection of craft beer and cocktails. At the Habitat restaurant, local ingredients mingle to create comfort foods beside an open kitchen.
Pittsburgh itself is also worthy of exploration, offering a restored historic market, the arts and interior design district, and all sorts of scenic biking routes. Of course, should you land during NFL season, nothing is quite like Steelers' fans at a tailgate party.
