Lovely old mansion built by Mr. Carnegie's lawyer for his wife and 10 children!! We very much enjoyed the location as we did not want to be in downtown Pittsburgh but to be close to our granddaughter at Carnegie Mellon. Stay in the Mansion not in the adjacent building which was built for one of his daughters....

I took my wife to the Mansions on Fifth as a birthday getaway. From the moment we pulled in (loose gravel/stone driveway), I knew it wasn't going to live up to expectations. I am not the type of person to complain, but felt the need to this time. This seemed like a quiet bed and breakfast atmosphere, but that wasn't... More

This is a historic (old) Pittsburgh mansion, "a work in progress" - being lovingly restored. What makes it exceptional is personal services, making us feel like their only guests (we're not). European breakfast is exceptional - fresh white tablecloth settings with contrasting colored linen napkins (compare that to the usual paper napkin that tends to "butterfly" itself around your lap!)...

We held our daughter's wedding on November 2st, 2013 at the Mansion and we can not say enough about how marvelous it was. We were able to book the entire hotel for our guests and had the wedding ceremony in front of their wonderful stained glass windows on the staircase. The hotel even arranged for a pre-wedding movie night in... More

I can not say enough about the staff at this hotel, from the reception desk, porter, manager etc all were keyed to making sure you have a great experience at their hotel. The hotel is housed in an old mansion near the University of Pittsburgh and CMU. The woodwork and stained and leaded windows are magnificent. We enjoyed an excellent... More

Booked a weekend stay at the Mansion based on reviews from tripadvisor and wasn't disappointed. The Mansion was built in 1906, recently restored accepting travelers. It is a beautiful property, with a dark wood Tudor theme, stained glass and fantastic architecture, reminding us of our time in England. We stayed in a very spacious room on the 3rd floor. There...

I am always looking for a hidden gem when we travel as we grow tired of the usual IHG properties we stay in. I found the Mansions on Trip Advisor and was very exicted to take my wife there for a saturday night while in Pittsburgh. We were not disappointed as exceptional service from the valet guys when ever we... More

We recently stayed at the Mansions on Fifth for a weekend escape... From the moment we were greeted on Friday evening, the staff, ambiance, food and wine were beyond all expectations. What a dreamy way to end a hectic week. The warmth of the fire places and the exquisite furnishings and decor made me feel like I was among the... More

I love architecture and could not wait to stay at the Mansion, so we booked a night for our 5th anniversary. From the minute we arrived it was a disappointment. The "parking lot" is gravel and was very muddy. In fact the valet tracked mud into our car. When we went into the Mansion to check in we were told... More

I have enjoyed visited the Mansion for events and for happy hour but this week I had the opportunity for the full overnight experience. Our room was big, bright and classic, with a large modern bathroom, flat screen TV and exceptional room service. It was truly delightful to take in the beautiful woodwork and artwork and to spend time in... More
