Default Pittsburgh?

Ill be in Pittsburgh this weekend delivering my daughter to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and would like to stay out there (friday to sunday).

Can anybody direct me on a cheap place to stay and something to do? Its a 3 1/2 hr drive from here and I hate to drive out and back and then turn around a day later and do it again.

Thanks for the help!

There's a Fairfield Inn in Cranberry. Last time I stayed, it was $85 / night. Cranberry's 15 minutes north of downtown.

If you want to stay IN the city, I would try the Westin Convention Center or the Marriott Courtyard on Penn Avenue. The Rennaissance is also very nice but $$$. Also there's a Hilton by the point. Usually you'll pay about $150 / night downtown on average...

PS - Find your way to the Fox Chapel Yacht Club 10 minutes NE of downtown - I'll have my boat there for their Poker Run - it'll be a weekend-long party!

Thanks - downtowns are always cool but seldom in my price range

I have yet to be on the water this year so a poker run would be awesome!
