Hi Ray,

I just spoke with the hotel (412-391-4600), which explained
that they are in transition to new management.  They confirmed
that the Hilton Web pages no longer work -- the new Web
address for the hotel is [1].

A search of Google News turned up late-breaking news at [2].

They said that all reservations in the system are still good,
but if anyone has concerns, they can call the number above.
