      Pleasant Stay in North Shore Boutique Hotel
      This hotel was originally built for 19th Century Benedictine monks, so the place certainly has its charm. It is cheaper than any other nearby downtown hotel, but it is on the north shore, so you will have to cross the 9th Street Bridge to reach downtown. It is just a 15 minute walk but be advised that the neighborhood is a little sketchy. However, the north shore is where the Mexican War Streets Neighborhood has their once a year home and garden tour around the 2nd Sunday of September which I highly recommend. With any boutique hotel you can expect inconsistencies (i.e. wiki, air conditioning, ). The staff is friendly but they dont specifically cater to gay travelers. Theres plenty of parking either in front or on the side of the building, and the Monks Bar is quaint enough for a drink of traditional martinis (i.e. dark and stormy and their own monktini) before going out for the evening. Regardless of where you stay, cabs in Pittsburgh are notoriously expensive and unpredictable. The Priory has their own independent contractor who is very professional and reliable just make a reservation with him through the front desk including trips to/from the Pittsburgh International Airport. Finally liquor laws in the state are restrictive you cant buy alcohol in grocery or convenient stores. However, theres a wine and spirits store closely on E. Ohio St. if you need something for your room (although technically the hotel rule is that the only alcohol on the premises should be purchased from them).
