Technology Drive – Specifically 329 Technology Dr., is the new home of Hotel Indigo and The Eliza Bistro. Technology Dr. parallels Second Ave. and was the home of Jones and Laughlin Steel for many years. This site has been reclaimed by many new and exciting companies, often as part of UPMC, Pitt, and CMU. As we watched these companies move in, we wondered how many buildings would be built before a hotel or restaurant was built.
Surprise!! It has happened!
Hotel Indigo is an IHA affiliated property. In an acknowledgement to the heritage from which it rose, the style of the hotel is very neat and industrial. Over 100 sleeping rooms are available. It also has a courtesy shuttle available for guest use daily.
The Eliza Bistro Restaurant is a wonderful entity just off the lobby. The restaurant was named after the J & L Eliza Blast Furnace. There are mill-related items on display here and in the lobby.
In addition to the restaurant, there is banquet space available, with outside patios on the first floor and the 5th floor rooftop. All of the banquet and patio space, as well as the restaurant, can accommodate rehearsal dinners, private parties, and other functions up to approximately 100-120 guests.
What a neat surprise……. to visit a part of my past and witness the transformation that has taken place. I urge you to try the Eliza Bistro and Hotel Indigo. You will not be disappointed!
