Looking for the ease of a hotel wedding but longing for something a little more extraordinary than a standard ballroom? Meet The Terrace at the Hyatt House. This wedding venue located in Pittsburgh’s Southside neighborhood has been giving new meaning to “hotel weddings” since 2013. With its waterfront space, versatile décor, and exceptional team of staff and vendors, it’s a proverbial wedding venue triple threat for any couple looking for both style and convenience. Every once-in-a-lifetime celebration deserves a phenomenal space in which to host it. It doesn’t get more exceptional than The Terrace at the Hyatt House, and here are just a few reasons why we think you’ll love it!
The views are unbeatable.
Undeniably, one of Pittsburgh’s best features is its skyline. In not too many cities can you find urban grit against mountainous, green surroundings. The unique combination of nature and city is one reason we all love the ‘Burgh so much. With a wedding at The Terrace, you can put the views on full display. From their patio, you can catch glimpses of downtown, several iconic Pittsburgh bridges, and a few of the distinctive neighborhoods that make our city so special. If you love the 412 and are looking to put it on full display on your wedding day, a celebration at this venue will easily allow you to do just that!
It’s blank slate-ness is ideal for almost any couple’s vision.
If you’re looking to seamlessly merge styles at your wedding reception, The Terrace is the perfect place to do it. It’s the ideal combination of outdoor-meets-casual-meets-tented chic. The patio and the tent area boast a clean, sleek look that is just waiting for your own personal touches. Dress it up with string lights and suspended chandeliers for hints of glamorous luxury. Or keep things light and whimsical with tons of fresh florals on the tables and a summer breeze blowing through the space. Add all the color you want against the neutral backdrop, or keep the color palette simple for a monochromatic, sophisticated soiree. Either way, The Terrace can be transformed to meet you dream wedding style!
On-site accommodations make it super convenient.
A very easy way to shave some money off your wedding budget AND eliminate some stress at the same time is to have your wedding ceremony and reception at the same place. Throw getting ready AND spending the night before and after the wedding into the mix and you have a recipe for a wedding venue that is 1000% convenient! With on-site accommodations perfect for getting wedding ready, as well as a nice place for your out-of-town guests to stay, the Hyatt House makes for an ideal location. No need to hire transportation or waste time in traffic. Plus, all of the typical amenities of a hotel are right at your disposal. You and your guests can literally walk downstairs and the party begins!
The resident tent keeps you protected from the unpredictable Pittsburgh weather.
We all know that the local weather can have a mind of its own. If you’ve always dreamed of an outdoor wedding but don’t want to take the chance of a rain-out, you’re in luck. The Terrace features a semi-permanent tent that is included in all of its rentals. The stylish covering boasts a white top for a clean look and detachable walls that will protect you and your guests from the elements, should they present themselves. You won’t need to worry about arranging all of the tent logistics on your own either. It goes up at the beginning of the wedding season and stays up for The Terrace’s clients’ use. This built-in perk just made having an outdoor wedding a heck of a lot easier!
You’ll be in good hands with one of their preferred caterers.
While some couples might feel limited or creatively stifled by a preferred vendor list, the one at The Terrace will have you feeling the very opposite. They partner with some of Pittsburgh’s most trusted, talented, and tastiest caterers, including my personal favorites Big Burrito, Sausalido, and Tallulah’s. Each of them can help you customize a menu that suits your taste buds and your wedding budget. When agonizing over wedding details, you’ll likely hear, “No one will even notice or remember anyway!” Not only is that not true, but it’s especially false when it comes to the food! Your guests WILL remember their meal if it’s really good…or really bad. The Terrace makes sure your reception is in good hands and will be one worth remembering with their preferred caterers.
You might be able to save with one of their wedding specials!
Weddings are EXPENSIVE. But there are a few sneaky ways you can save some dough without sacrificing style. The Terrace graciously offers various discounts and specials for last minute dates that might be available! You can even save on your pre-wedding soiree with their Sunday bridal shower special.

Given this list, it’s easy to see why The Terrace is one of our favorite Pittsburgh wedding venues. But if you still need some convincing, check them out in the Burgh Brides Vendor Guide, on the web, or follow them on Instagram!
