Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel
The hotel is a beautifully restored classic overlooking the Allegheny River and a few of the city's many renowned bridges (which are also very cool for kids). This hotel puts you right across the river from five-year-old PNC Park, home of the Pirates; on baseball game nights, a carnival atmosphere takes hold, as the Sixth Street Bridge is shut to traffic and pedestrians fill the streets leading to the stadium. Take advantage of the family package, which included two pizzas via room service and a free in-room flick.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
