If you’re looking for a place to stay, there are many hotel options in Downtown Pittsburgh. Most of them charge for parking in addition to your stay. If you are driving to Pittsburgh and are looking for a cheaper option, the hotels in Green Tree are just outside of downtown. You would then need to drive into downtown, where Saturday parking is usually in the $5 to $6 range for the day.
Sheraton Station Square
Station Square is just a short walk/drive across the Smithfield Street Bridge from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
