I’ve enjoyed my stays at The Westin Convention Center Pittsburgh, what will change?
Guests will experiences a true sensory welcome with the Energizing Haven.  Upon arrival in the new lobby, guests are transported from the everyday and are greeted with a unique balance of calm and energy, beginning with a more customized experience at the new Westin check-in pods. These free-standing structures replace the outdated hotel check-in desk and are ergonomically designed with work surfaces at optimum heights and a more spacious, personal guest interaction area. This new relaxing arrival zone allows travelers to let go of their stress and enter an inviting, uplifting space that helps them stay balanced, refreshed and ready to achieve. The Vertical Garden is a unique focal element of the new Westin lobby concept and was designed not only to improve indoor air quality, but also to create a calming and natural environment.  Our Living Wall will span to the third floor, encompassing the green nature of the Westin brand.  The modernization of our elevators will also occur as we will also be updating and redesigning our elevators to expedite our guests to their guest room and event space.
