We have made arrangements with the Hyatt House Pittsburgh to allow our attendees from out of town to rent rooms at a special rate. Hyatt House is a suite hotel that offers a hot breakfast each morning and has a complete kitchen in every room. It is actually within walking distance of the site of the institute, the Winchester-Thurston School, but there is also a shuttle that will run continuously to take you back and forth. The shuttle will also take you to many nearby grocery stores and restaurants within a three-mile radius. The price for the rooms is $129/night plus tax for a King Studio and $139/night plus tax for a Queen One-Bedroom with a fold-out bed that could easily accommodate 3 or 4 people. If you are interested in sharing rooms, we can help you connect with other GPSI attendees. To register at the Hyatt House, call 1-888-545-8207 or go and identify yourself as members of the Greater Pittsburgh Suzuki Institute. These rates are only good till July 15, 2020. We also know of several nearby Airbnb facilities available to us.
Everyone is on his/her own for all meals. You are welcome to bring a bag lunch each day and eat in the cafeteria at the institute. We will provide you with a list of nearby restaurants at check-in. There are many varied eating establishments within walking distance. We will sell snacks like granola bars and chips as well as bottled water and pop at our registration table each day.
