I was so surprised by this hotel. I loved the old world charm. The staff was so friendly and kind. What a gem! The location is so convenient to the Consol arena and restaurants such as Meat and Potatoes. My room had a great view of the city and was spot less. Highly recommend you give this place a try.

Simply perfect - Great hotel, great location, great staff! Take advantage of their romance package and you will not be disappointed. Everything is within a short walk, or you can simply jump on the train and be on the North Shore (Casino, Stadiums, etc.) in less than 10 minutes.

We really loved the ambiance of the hotel, but our bed was so uncomfortable that we literally could not sleep. The mattress seemed very old and unsupportive. It''s unfortunate, and I hope all of the beds are not as worn out as the mattress we had, for the sake of the other people who stay here.

I do not try to find problems with hotels I stay, but when everything thing seems too perfect, I do start to pay a little more attention. Maybe it was when ironing my shirt I made use of the complimentary spray starch and noticed a lavender package in the closet(prevents moths). Anyways, the hotel, staff, and service were impeccable.

We stayed two nights at this hotel for a family wedding. It was a beautiful building and our room was big enough for us and our 11 month old daughter. Our room with a king sized bed had 2 bathrooms (1/2 and full) and plenty of room for our kid to move around. They had a pack&play set up for...

I enjoyed my business trip to Pittsburgh in part thanks to the lovely accommodations at the Omni William Penn. The room was elegant and cozy and my colleagues and I enjoyed partaking of the speakeasy in the basement for some after work relaxation. The hotel is in excellent proximity to shopping arts and sports complexes downtown.

Thanks! The Speakeasy is really cool spot...we agree! Why not plan a getaway weekend to enjoy and explore the city? We're just a short walk to many of the city's fun things to do! Thank you for choosing the Omni William Penn and we hope to see you again.

Stayed here one night 1/3/16 and it was beautiful. Downtown Pittsburgh just a walk to lots of local shops and even the incline. The hotel itself has so much history in it and it so big. We spent almost an hour just exploring the hotel. Includes a delicious breakfast spot inside, a Starbucks, a restaurant, and a bar. Our room...
