“We are pleased with the continued growth of Residence Inn hotels in the Pittsburgh area,” Diane Mayer, vice president & global brand manager for Residence Inn, said in a statement. “When on the road for an extended period, our guests need space to spread out, maintain their life’s pace and restore their energy to help them maintain a healthy balance and routine while traveling.
