Sorta have an oopsy doodle with hotels this year, was dabling about with Priceline and got a very early hotel, wonderful price at 70 a night, but at the Sheraton at Station Square, a long walk for sure but at least they have there own shuttle to down town till about 10 pm...

My question is  what would be the best way to get a taxi from the westin area out to stations quare in the wee hours of the morning(say 1:30 after who's lion is it for example), not sure I've feel safe walking alone that far at that time of night. Would I be able to ask at the front desk of the westin to call a cab for that sorta thing?

This is an EXTREMELY common request for front desk personnel.  Just tip the front desk and the bellman.

Yeah, hotels will have a taxi stand outside of them, its no panic. And if there are not any there can stand or go back in and talk to the staff to get one for you. Smiling

You may also wisht o consider the Pittsburgh bus system and the Red Line, but at that late at night, a taxi would indeed be reasonable. Otherwise you're looking at a half-hour walk.. one I've pleasantly made in the daytime, though, after riding the inclines.

Yep, have no trouble or concerns during the day, its a bit of a hike but I regularly do that in my own town to stay somewhat in shape, but even in my old stomping grounds doing it in the wee hours isn't something i choose to do.. Busses are fine and dandy but already had checked and they seem to stop running around midnight give or take, so figured I'd make sure about my options.

Other than Front Desk and taxi I believe Lyft and Uber are both still running in Pittsburgh. With a smart phone and their app. Usally cheaper and faster than a cab.

Uber may repeat their deal of a free ride up to $20 for new signups.

Hmm don't normally use a smart phone actually, but from there web page the minimum price is pretty close to what a cab fare is estimated, since i'm only going a couple miles I don't know if there is to much of a difference, suppose i could always give it a go if there is a promotion happening of course
