This year for Christmas, my boyfriend and I decided to get a hotel room downtown and have a nice evening with just the two of us instead of exchanging gifts. I wanted to book a hotel that we normally wouldn’t typically stay at so we decided to go with the Fairmont Pittsburgh. After arriving at valet, my boyfriend checked in and to my surprise he had upgraded the room to a suite. After walking into our room, I literally had no words. As you can tell by the photos, it was absolutely breathtaking.

After we got settled into our room, I fixed my hair and did my makeup to get ready for dinner. We were originally going to go to a seafood restaurant but after we saw our room, we decided to go to the restaurant in the hotel called Floor 2. If you’re a true WLFJ follower, then you would have seen my previous blog post about Floor 2 from when we went their for our anniversary dinner. I am actually really happy that we did that because it was more relaxing. For dinner, to start we both ordered a glass of wine and the charcuterie and cheese board. For our entrees, I ordered a caesar salad with oil and vinegar instead of the caesar dressing and the crispy mushrooms. My boyfriend ordered the bone-in-strip steak. Everything was extraordinarily good!

After dinner, we took both of our glasses of wine upstairs and watched the rest of the Pittsburgh Penguins game on the couch. When the game ended, we put on the new season of You which is where I soon passed out. I was so tired that he had to carry me into bed. That’s when you know you picked a good one haha! On Sunday, we packed up and went to the Strip District to grab some things at Penn Mac. That would be another fun thing to do if you decided to stay here. We were also right next to Market Square and just walking distance to PPG where you can ice skate. I really liked that all of the Christmas decorations were still up too so it was all super pretty! All in all we both were really happy that we decided to do this so I highly recommend it for next year!
