PIT The Club (temporary 2017)

PIT The Club (temporary 2017)
September 2017

I arrived at the Sheraton Station Square at around 6:30pm.  My 15th floor room with club access.

On the other side of Station Square, The Grand Concourse restaurant in what apparently was the old train station.

I've been coming to Pittsburgh regularly for 6 years now but last night was the first time I've taken the incline and seen the city from Mt. Washington. From the Sheraton at Station Square, it was a short 4 minute walk to the lower Monongahela Incline station, built in 1869. 

Simply spectacular views of the city at twilight.

At the other end of Grandview is Monterey Bay Fish Grotto. Great seafood and amazing views.

 

My Chilean Sea Bass prepared Caribbean style. Delicious!

After dinner, a short Uber ride back to the Sheraton.

Where they let you know what team they support. 

And a pretty nice view from my room the next morning.

After a day of meetings, off to the airport for the trip home.

Believe it or not, this is the PreCheck line.  Yikes.

Remembering a classic moment in Pittsburgh sports history.

And a very attractive main concourse area, with 4 sets of 25 or so gates extending out. 

For years, the dumpy Admirals Club was the only game in town.  Fortunately, the Club is a new Priority Lounge set to open in a few weeks.

Currently located in a temporary location which from the look of the interior, may have been another lounge years ago.

Pleasant staff and the lounge was quite adequate especially for a temporary faciity.
