The Priory has a beautiful interior and a lot of history to share. The corridors are decorated with old maps and beautiful furniture. Have a drink in the Monk's bar! Don't forget to check out the church, which can be used for weddings!

The hotel appears to be in a seedy area, but DO NOT let this deter you from staying as we found it very safe. Beautiful interior with lovely antique furniture and historical plates and maps/pictures on the walls. The bed was comfy and room was spacious and well decorated. We took advantage of the free shuttle and Harry the driver... More

My husband and I stayed at Priory for 3 nights as we were in town to see 3 Pirates games. This hotel is perfect. The location is near the North Shore, the Strip, & Station Square. The building is beautiful. Lovely old architecture. Beautiful woodwork, windows, & doors. Free parking, buffet breakfast included, free shuttle to local areas. We took... More

I've stayed at The Priory many times - a great location near downtown Pittsburgh. Free parking and the rooms have all the amenities you need! They have a bar in the hotel - and their breakfast in the morning is fantastic! Lots of fresh fruit, hot coffee, pastries, etc. I would highly recommend!!

We recently spent town nights in a Queen room. The owners have done a wonderful job of adapting the building to be used as a modern boutique hotel. Some have made comments concerning tight or cramped facilities but I'm more than accepting of how the adaptations have been made to accommodate modern usage. The courtyard is wonderful and we took...

Loved the idea of a refashioned monastery for a hotel stay for Pirates game. Super close to PNC Park, free parking and continental breakfast for $130 for the night on a holiday weekend. Can't beat it. Now for the negatives. You can hear everything going on both inside and outside the hotel in the room. Room was cramped and kind... More

Beautiful old building in a slightly "pioneering" neighborhood. Gorgeous patio, sassy bartender, excellent breakfast. Odd-shaped rooms. We had a small full bed that was pretty hard but with great pillows. Good restaurant recommendations from front desk. Easy parking. Can walk to downtown. Not quite $188 worth.

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? Our Monks' Bar is open daily, and you can enjoy a cool drink in our cozy sitting room (with a wood burning fireplace), or out in our garden courtyard. ... more   less
