When we go to Pittsburgh we stay in Carnegie at the Extended Stay America.($89/night) We go through the Fort Pitt tunnel to Station Square and ride the clipper over for $10. You can park right there and shop at home before or after the game. This is depending what time the game is. Parking is pretty cheap too. Do some shopping at station square and get your parking validated to save some $$ on parking. You probably won't find a hotel down town. Have a good time in the burgh.
