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

I found this hotel to be very relaxing. The place is old and dark but isn't that one of the great things about historic buildings. My husband and I stayed for our anniversary. We did stay on weeknight so I can not comment on the issues that a lot of other guests had on the weekends. (noise / event crowds).... More

My husband and I decided to get away for a night, and ended up in Pittsburgh. I love old houses and prefer to stay somewhere different when we go places. The mansion was absolutely beautiful, the hotel staff was extremely nice, and the bed was very comfortable. I definitely would recommend this hotel.

We came to Pittsburgh to cook Thanksgiving dinner with family. As soon as we registered into this historic, warm, beautifully restored mansion and were greeted by the friendly staff, I had to ask if they offered Thanksgiving dinner; it just seemed like the perfect setting. Yes, they did an amazing holiday feast - great food and beautiful decor; warm and... More

Although this is a historic property, we found it to be a little dark and tired. If you like lots of carved wood and stained glass this could be great for you. Our room was pretty basic and did not feel very luxurious. The lack of window treatments allowed an enormous amount of light into our room which made it... More
