Staff is very nice. Room was small but clean. Shower is barely large enough to stand in but had good pressure. European breakfast was as advertised; I liked it. Neighborhood wasn't so nice. Didn't feel safe walking. They have a shuttle, which is good. The place isn't far from downtown (across the river), but the shuttle doesn't go to the...

Since we typically go to chain hotels when we travel, this hotel was a breath of fresh air. The building had so much character. I loved the creaky steps and the big old windows. The room was clean and neat. The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the breakfast that was served. It was definitely a lot more classy...

This renovated former church property offers delightful accommodations coupled with close proximity to downtown Pittsburgh and free hotel van service to many local points of interest. The staff provides professional and friendly service and the complementary European style breakfast is a perfect way to start the day. Just an overall great experience in a wonderful city.

Just arrived in Pittsburgh after 26 hr of flying, what s charming hotel, with lots of quirkiness. Dinner options very limited, and not yet sure of the location, safety and accessibility to the Hospital. They did offer a shuttle bus which is great. I give it 3/5, on first impressions with a further review upon departure.

This is a beautiful hotel. The building is old, but that is a good thing. It has character, and stability, and history. I was very concerned about staying what seemed to me to be close to a highway, but we barely heard any traffic noise, thanks to the solid construction of the building. Our suite (on the 3rd floor) was...

Centrally located, great stay, would recommend, lovely. Recommend the east side of the hotel. Great service and people, lots of history. Walking distance to pirates or steelers and much more. Shuttle service is great also.

This place is more than a B&B, but less than a full service hotel. It is old but well maintained. As with all old hotels, the (comfortable) rooms are not uniform in size or layout. Some of the bathrooms are a little cramped. There is a very small bar off the cozy lobby. Breakfast (that's all there is) is a...

I travelled with my wife to Pittsburgh. What seemed like a good idea for hotel turned out to have missed the mark. The curtains were falling down and the breakfast was a disappointment. The staff however was super friendly (although unable to help with the wifi -- not a reason here for a bad review in itself. I actually thought...

Mr. Jacobs: Thanks for your feedback. We're pleased that you were well served by our staff. In terms of the guestroom, we'll have to drill down into what was up with the drapes. It's our expectation that your room will be perfect, and that should not have occurred. Please accept our apologies. With regard to the breakfast, if you have...

My wife and I stayed here in June 2011 so my review is based on that stay. We were in town for a Pirates game and this hotel met our needs. The front desk attendant (I believe his name was Willie) was friendly and professional. The room was a bit tight but we knew it was going to be that...

We happened upon this place via Priceline. The photos looked great and the price was very cheap, so we gave it a try. We were SO pleased and surprised by how lovely this hotel was. Extremely nice staff, quaint and lovely rooms, and such a unique and fun style. Lovely small and intimate bar. 24-hour fitness center. A+ all around....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A former Benedictine Monastery, the Priory Hotel is a boutique hotel located in the heart of Pittsburgh's historic Deutschtown district. Built in 1888 (with a new addition which opened in January 2011), the Priory offers late 19th century historic ambiance, with all of the modern amenities, including flat screen televisions, in-room safes and coffee service, and complimentary hard wired and wireless Internet service. The Priory is within easy walking distance of many Pittsburgh attractions, including the Andy Warhol Museum, National Aviary, PNC Park and Heinz Field, and is less than a mile from downtown Pittsburgh. The Priory Hotel offers a complimentary European-style Continental breakfast every morning; parking is complimentary as well. Don't feel like leaving the property?
