December 10, 2015 - Downtown Pittsburgh has become reenergized, so much so that it's routinely named one of the best places to visit year after year. So what's the cause for Pittsburgh's renewed sense of excitement? Discover just some of the ways Pittsburgh has reinvented itself with help from the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Pittsburgh Downtown.

By the time of the Steel Industry collapse in the 1970s, few people though Pittsburgh would ever recover. Unemployment rates were sky high, and a rise from the clouds of smoke and ashes that remain seemed unlikely. A mere 32 years later, however, and Pittsburgh could not be further removed from its Rust Belt past. Downtown Pittsburgh is now an epicenter of urban life, packed with promise, entertainment, and excitement around every corner.

One of the biggest reasons for Pittsburgh's emergence is the city's commitment to bringing downtown to life. More than $2.1 billion has been invested in the downtown neighborhood over the last five years, with over 40 percent of the invested dollars are focused on renovating or conserving the city's historical buildings. In the last year alone, almost half of the 37 development projects in the region took place in the downtown area.

The city's cultural surge is also another big reason tourists are flocking to downtown like never before. At the heart of Pittsburgh's cultural revival is the Cultural District. Spanning roughly 14 city blocks, the Cultural District offers up endless entertainment, public parks, art galleries, retail shops and restaurants that attract over two million visitors each year.

The Cultural District isn't the only place to find fun in downtown Pittsburgh. If you're really looking to sample the city, take a trip to Market Square. After a few years of construction Market Square has come to life once again, showcasing some of the city's finest eateries, late night hotspots and hosts a variety of events throughout the year.

A lot of tourists are drawn to the city for the food alone. In recent years, Pittsburgh has cemented its status as a foodie's paradise thanks to unique eateries, creative chefs and a food scene that leaves guests begging for more.

With new developments happening all around the city, it's a great time to visit the city and be a part of all the excitement that fills that air in downtown Pittsburgh. Explore some of the exciting opportunities that await your stay at a downtown Pittsburgh hotel by visiting
