Pittsburgh is a relatively affordable city with a large number of wheelchair accessible hotel rooms, with options to suit any budget. There are many options for wheelchair-friendly accommodations throughout the city, but having a room downtown is most conducive to stress-free accessible travel.
When deciding on a particular hotel, it is important to seek out information on accessibility before booking a room. Ask about everything—door width, thresholds, shower/tub set-up, bed height, grab bars, shower chairs—to avoid an unfortunate surprise when you arrive.
I’ve taken the time to compile the following list of hotels in Pittsburgh which offer handicap accessible rooms (all offer roll-in showers). This is not a complete list of accessible hotels in the city. Hotels listed in bold are properties I have stayed at myself.
