I am bringing a group to Pittsburgh in August. We will be travelling together in a 45' motorcoach and I am looking for parking options close to downtown. My ideal solution would be a downtown hotel with parking on-site. I was able to do this two years ago when taking the same motorcoach to Baltimore.
Try the Sheraton Station Square Hotel. Definitely space to park a bus and perfect spot for sightseeing. Some lesser known places you might want to visit are the Roberto Clemente Bridgemuseum and the Andy Warhol Museum.

Wow. That's a toughie. Call the Sheraton Station Square Hotel about parking your motor home. The Sheraton is just across the river from downtown and an easy, enjoyable walk. The Sheraton might be your best bet. The downtown Pittsburgh hotels all (?) have underground garages as parking space is tight downtown. But, it might be worth giving them a call anyway. The Fairmont Pittsburgh Hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Pittsburgh Downtown, and the Omni William Penn Hotel are all in the heart of downtown and I would recommend all of them. I'd call them first to ask about parking because I'm pretty sure that all of them just have underground parking. Another thing that I would suggest, although it does seem a bit strange, is to call the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to see if they rent parking. Yes, that is a newspaper. They are in a terrific location in downtown Pittsburgh, near the point, and they have a large, above-ground parking lot. Every time we drive past that parking lot, it seems mostly empty. If they would rent a parking space for your 45' motor home, you'd be in a wonderful location with great views! Of course, I don't know if they actually do that. By the way, when you visit Pittsburgh, please be prepared for lots of steep hills and windy roads with sharp bends. Pittsburgh is a wonderful place to visit, though. Be sure to visit the Phipps Conservatory in Oakland and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History as well as the Carnegie Museum of Art, also in Oakland. It would be a quick bus trip from downtown to Oakland. Phipps and the Carnegie are a short walk. The Carnegie museums are each part of one large building. The Andy Warhol Museum might be worth visiting if you're into Andy Warhol. Also downtown is the Senator John Heinz History Center which is the history of Pittsburgh and the area. It's an amazing place to visit and probably one of the most unique regional history centers in the country. Also, since you will be in the Pittsburgh area, take this opportunity to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece of architecture, Fallingwater. And, not to far from Fallingwater, you can visit another Frank Lloyd Wright house, Kentuck Knob. They are about an hour southeast of Pittsburgh. Easy drive. And, if you go to see Fallingwater, be sure to visit Ohiopyle State Park, where you will be rewarded with a beautiful waterfall and wonderful photo opportunities. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions! Enjoy your visit to beautiful Pittsburgh!

Try the Hampton Inn & Suites Pittsburgh on Smallman Street in the Strip District, they have a large public parking lot adjacent to them that surely can accommodate you both.
