Why Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is an ideal location for your next meeting or convention. The city — which was the site of the G-20 Pittsburgh Summit 2009 — was praised worldwide by international journalists and our prestigious guests. President Obama described Pittsburgh as "...a world-class city...It has transformed itself...and serves as a model for turning the page to a 21st century economy."

Pittsburgh''s sparkling clean rivers and beautiful bridges provide the perfect backdrop to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, the world's first gold LEED-certified convention center. The Leadership in Energy and Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.

To know Pittsburgh, you have to see it for yourself. Come and see a city that has had a remarkable environmental renaissance, a top-10 city for certified green building space, a city ripe with natural and cultural amenities.

Come sample our award-winning customer service, tour our green Convention Center and discover all we can do to make your meeting "green." Stroll our walkable Downtown and see how very easy it is to get from our hotels to our meeting spaces to our endless entertainment and dining options.
