I've previously stayed at the following hotels:

http://www.super8.com/hotels/pennsylvania/pittsburgh/super-8-pittsburgh-monroeville/hotel-overview?partner_id=&hotel_id=02806&group_code=&campaign_code=&propId=SE02806&brand_id=SE&checkout_date=05%2F15%2F2013&modify=false&useWRPoints=false&children=0&corporate_id=&ratePlan=BAR&teens=0&affiliate_id=&altPropId=02806&brand_code=BH%2CDI%2CRA%2CBU%2CHJ%2CKG%2CMT%2CSE%2CTL%2CWG%2CWY%2CPX%2CWT%2CWP%2CPN&iata=&rate_code=&adults=1&checkin_date=05%2F14%2F2013&rooms=1&ref_id=http%3A//www.wyndham.com&srcBrand=WY&srcDestination=monroeville

I found the 2nd one a bit far but good hotel. The owner is a Gujarati and very friendly and helpful

You'll get a discount at various chains (Wyndham Hotels, Choice Hotels, Red Roof) if you're a CAA member.

The S V Temple website has a visitors guide and a list of hotel around that offer special rates -> http://www.svtemple.org/uploads/VisitorsGuide.pdf

Route:

Keep in mind if you're driving to the Temple, you have to use the location coordinates for the GPS 40.440905 - 79.804087 (source temple website)

Direction from Toronto:

QEW - Peace Bridge - I-190 S - I-90 W - I-79 S - I-76 S (toll) or I-279 S

Driving time around 5.5 hrs

Shopping:

Grove City Outlets, which is on I-79 S, about an hour before you reach Pittsburg -> http://www.premiumoutlets.com/outlets/outlet.asp?id=85

Monroeville Mall -> http://www.monroevillemall.com/shop/monroeville.nsf/index

Grove City Outlet is before reaching Pittsburg.

Depending on how many days you're planning to be away, you could stay a night close to Grove City Outlet and hit the stores early morning.

We stayed @ Days Inn , Monroeville as other were sold out .... You can visit Oak Grove outlets both ways if you wish to ... its an hour plus drive from Pittsburgh ... I believe their website details the route from Toronto . ( SS has outlined it as well ) ...

In Pittsburgh , I d recommend visiting Mt Washington .. the trolley carriage ... Drive up the hill and park .... breath taking view ..

There s a very popular S Indian restaurant on the right (500 mts before turning for the temple ) ..forgotten its name but you cannot miss it ....

Wouldn't it be easier and more educational for you to use Google maps for clarifications?

The before and after matters in which direction you are travelling. While travelling from TO, it comes before PITTSBURG, while returning back from SV, it comes AFTER PITTSBURG.

It is always better to review the entire route and places on Google maps before embarking so that you are familiar about your surroundings while travelling.

Have safe trip.
