Carl and Jeff helped me pull off a wonderful surprise for my wife on a milestone birthday. I'd read about the Inn on the Mexican War Streets in the Lonely Planet guide to Pennsylvania and the price was very competitive when compared to Pittsburgh's ridiculous downtown hotels. Carl booked us into the Red Room, agreed to provide champagne and directed... More

This is a lovely old mansion that was well restored. Many antiques. Beautiful gardens outside. Quiet environment. Right across from the park with the National Aviary and the Buhl Planetarium; both great places to visit. It is within an easy 1 mile walk to the Heinz Field and PNC park. On main street so parking was right out front and... More

We were more than pleased with everything about the place. Carl and Jeff are friendly, warm hosts, and we will definitely be back! I wish it was closer to home. A nostalgic place to stay. Comfy, cozy. great location. Quiet, safe.

This was our first time in Pittsburgh and the Inn was a perfect place to get a feel for the city. The Inn is quiet, our room was huge, there was parking on the street. Nice park across the street. Walking distance to the National Aviary, the best aviary we have every seen. Karl was our host, and he cheerfully... More

Beautifully kept with very friendly staff. A great place to retire after a days touring. We were travelling at the time and decided to spoil ourselves. The inn on the mexican war street did not dissapoint. Recommended

You can walk to downtown about one mile away and the Pirates ballpark is literally a ten minute walk. At night you may be a little uncomfortable depending on where you walk but there are good restaurants nearby that are indeed walkable within five to ten minutes.

I stayed at the Inn while attending a week long workshop at the Pittsburgh Children's Museum and it was wonderful! Clean, comfortable, and convenient to the Children's Museum as well as several others. Jeff, the owner, is very gracious and kind. I would definitely stay here again. Oh, I forgot to mention that this is one gorgeous B&B!

We stayed for a friends wedding at the National Aviary which is directly across the street. The bridal party had most of the rooms booked so it felt like our very own mansion for the weekend! The building is gorgeous. After looking through the photo album of the renovations you can tell how much work was put into the Inn.... More

We recently spent several days in Pittsburgh and found the Inn on the Mexican War Streets an ideal location since we could walk to many of the places we wanted to visit (Warhol Museum, National Aviary, and the ball park) and had only a short drive (15-20 minutes) to all others. We very much enjoyed using the common areas--most particularly... More

My wife and I spent one night in the Boggs Room. In fact, we were the only guests in the Inn. The Inn's location is fine, even if the neighborhood remains a bit "transitional". It is a walkable distance to the stadium and downtown, but I probably wouldn't do it after dark. The original suggestion was to park our car... More
