Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Gets First HotelShark.com Fin Award for Service Quality

March 16, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
HotelShark.com, the world's most-trusted online lodging guide, has given the Fin Award for Service Quality to the Courtyard Pittsburgh Shadyside. Recent guests of the Courtyard Pittsburgh Shadyside told HotelShark.com that they "highly recommend" the hotel for its "spacious" guestrooms, "good service," and location "close to the universities." The travelers further called it an "upscale Courtyard."

The property is the first Pittsburgh hotel to be finned by HotelShark.com. Other finned properties in Pennsylvania include Loews Philadelphia Hotel, the Furnace Hills Bed and Breakfast in Denver, Sweetwater Farms in Glen Mills, and Porches on the Towpath in New Hope. HotelShark.com also has sections covering hotels in the Pennsylvania communities of Bird in Hand, Carlisle, Delaware Water Gap, Hershey, Lancaster, Lumberville, Strasburg, Trevose, and Wilkes-Barre.

The New York Times last month recognized HotelShark.com for the care it takes to insure the fidelity of its online reviews.

HotelShark.com awards fins to hotels that are reviewed, on the whole, positively by guests. A fin appears as a small, gray icon to the left of a hotel’s name within a given city index. The fin system gives travelers a quick way to find well-liked hotels within a given city.
