The Mansions on Fifth is a great idea. these old Pittsburgh houses are really treasures and that someone has taken it upon themselves to try this (very large and peculiar home) on as an upscale hotel is really a laudable idea. Problem is, the execution was not quite there and management really doesn't understand what it means to be a... More

Once 5th Avenue was lined with elegant mansions of wealthy Steel City tycoons, thus known by the middle and lower social classes and the press as "Millionaire's Row." This is one of the very last survivers, remindful of Chicago's Wheeler Mansion when its South Prairie district had similar mansions, although that "mansion hotel" would benefit from a more profession staff,...

Close to many attractions in Pittsburgh. The hotel has mouthwatering food for all meals. The staff are highly accommating. The wine cellar is amazing. The architecture is divine. You truly feel pampered after staying there.

We stayed at Mansions on Fifth for two nights! So wonderful. If you are a history buff, an architect, or just don't care to stay at yet another Hilton or Hyatt, this place is for you! Magnificently restored property with old-world craftmanship that dazzles at every corner; staying here is truly a unique experience. Built in the turn of the... More

This beautiful mansion has the right idea, but the follow-through needs work. First and foremost, the AC seems to be run by the old standby "majority rules." It seems the systems are run in such a way that if the couple in the next room are warm the AC can be requested to be shut off. Therefore, you will come... More

On a recent trip to Pittsburgh, we were lucky enough to get a reservation to Mansions on Fifth. The hotel is unique as it is an actual mansion once owned by a wealthy and influential family in Pittsburgh. The energetic young staff make you feel at home instantly and have the gift for knowing exactly when you will need your... More

This is a cool place to stay if you are visiting Pittsburgh and don’t want to be in the downtown hubbub of the city, yet it is close to many things. It is just under a mile to the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon (convenient for college visits!), and you can drive/walk/run right down Fifth Ave to get there.... More

As a Pittsburgh resident, Mansions on Fifth Avenue has lured my wife and I ever since it was so lavishly and lovingly renovated following a fire in 2004. As we reside on Fifth Avenue in Pittsburgh, we have long-admired this vestiges of Pittsburgh's industrial magnates past. A wedding brought us to the Mansions, but we had the pleasure of staying...

Our family tends to frequent the large, well established hotels when traveling; this can lead to a predictable but somewhat bland experience over time. Mansions on Fifth offered a unique experience and excellent service. The facility is in very good condition, and while not a full restoration, is carefully preserved and well maintained. The room was well appointed and clean,... More

I booked a room at this hotel for a special birthday treat for my boyfriend. We live in Pittsburgh, so the idea was just to stay someplace fancy for the night, with a fireplace in our room. While the property is gorgeous, the staff felt like something out of a sitcom where someone inherits a mansion and decides to turn... More
