If you were hoping to find a hotel room for Saturday night in Pittsburgh -- or anywhere close to the city -- you're about out of luck.
With the Steelers and Pitt playing at Heinz Field and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performing at sold-out Consol Energy Center this weekend, most hotels are booked to the roof.
A check of the Expedia travel website now shows 117 of the 118 listed hotels sold out. The Fairmont in Downtown Pittsburgh was seeking $475 for a one-night stay as of this afternoon -- the only room left at any of the hotels.
Pitt plays Temple at noon Saturday; Mr. Springsteen's show begins at 7:30 p.m. Saturday; and the Steelers play the Washington Redskins at 1 p.m. Sunday.
