I am writing this review at 1 AM since I was awakened by other guests and can't fall asleep anymore. As you can imagine, I am not very happy. I have stayed in the "guest house", not the main building, so maybe my review is not valid for the other rooms. But, I can guarantee that here rooms are extremely... More

We stayed the night and thought the hotel and staff were wonderful. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The European breakfast was great and plenty of food. Only room for improvement was temperature in room. A bit pricey but definitely glad we stopped.

This had been a derelict property but two energetic women with an amazing ability to imagine what that the wreck of a property (has two buildings on it) was a potential beauty. Theyrecently restored it with fine taste and historical sensitivity. We stayed in the smaller mansion as well as the larger one and much preferred the second. This Victorian... More

The staff is warm and friendly, the rooms cozy and comfortable. I travel a lot and haven't been in a more relaxing atmosphere. Gorgeous historic features and terrific people! I will definitely be coming back!

Saturday night at 1045 the disco beat pounds in our third floor room. The gracious lobby and parlor and terrace are jammed with wedding guests. One must retreat to her room and still there is no peace. Unless it us your wedding, graduation or party do not stay here. The place is so heavily booked with events that whatever charms... More

The property is lovely, and overall a positive experience - however a miss on common sense. They require you to valet park your car. At 6 PM I let them know we needed the car at 7PM to get to a dinner reservation (we were hosting several others at a great restaurant on the other side of town). At 6:50... More

The customer service was "Over The Top." Plus the mansion was magnificently beautiful - stainglass windows, gorgeus woodwork, the woodwork was a work of art, and decor elegant. Lovely location for a wedding or romantic getaway. We were definitely spoiled during our stay. Special shout out to Scott the Bartender who mixes a mean drink and is a wonderful conversationalist....

Mansions on Fifth was the former residence of Willis McCook, Henry Clay Frick's lawyer, whose services allowed him, in 1906, to build a "medieval" castle of grey stone complete with battlements and gargoyles for his wife and ten children and a separate "Tudor" mansion as a wedding present for his eldest daughter. Both are in a style that Edith Wharton... More

After living in Pittsburgh for 8 years, I came to know and love the charm of the city. When returning for a weekend wedding I wanted my NYC, first time Pittsburgh visitor boyfriend to see why I love the city of Pittsburgh, so we stayed at the Mansions on Fifth. Despite being on the more expensive side, Mansions on Fifth... More

Stayed for one night, wish it could have been longer! The staff at this hotel is exceptional -- from the bellman who met me at the car, to the charming bartender in the lovely oak bar, and most impressively, the overnight auditor who brought early coffee to my room due to an early departure, and then who ended up driving...
