There are not enough adjectives to describe the Parador. Amazing, unique, awe-inspiring – none of these quite capture the charm, beauty and Caribbean whimsy that makes this place so special. And who would have thought we would find this treasure in Pittsburgh? Certainly not me. But we did and I cannot say enough about it. Take a breathtaking Victorian mansion, restore it with loving care and impeccable authentic decor – then add some bright and unexpected interior colors, a sandy “beach” outside, the shadows of palm leaves on the walls, a Key West style sun room, a black lab and a great host named Ed and you have The Parador. And don’t forget the superb breakfasts! There is no detail Ed has overlooked…even down to the small, but powerful, flashlight on the bedstand so you can use the “facilities” without waking your husband by turning on the lights (or tripping over your feet). Thank you for being there Ed. We will return. I want to try every room!
