On one of our weekend getaway, I decided I wanted something different than a hotel. I found Mansions on Fifth. The outside was breathtaking with the Christmas lights still up and snow on the ground. U walk in through the double doors to a walk in size fireplace to the left of the starecase,stained glass windows above the landing to... More

The valet parking and bell hop were very professional. We enjoyed a room in the main mansion. The decor, room size, and bathroom were nicely appointed. We appreciated the beautiful artwork on display that appeared to be inspired by the famous Impressionist, "Degas". The Mansion is located within walking distance to a very nice downtown area and several universities. Our... More

We booked a reheasal dinner in July 2013 for the following July, 2014. Two months before our scheduled event we were told there was a wedding planned for the same date and time. We were literally kicked out of the main building & told we could have the old building across the parking lot. It was not satisfactory--our magical evening... More

My daughter and I needed a place to stay for one night while in Pittsburgh for business. Mansions on Fifth was a central location The parking valet/bell hop was wonderful very friendly and knowledgeable. The check in process was less than desirable. The front desk attendant wanted to place us to a much cheaper room in the adjacent building. They... More

What a fabulous experience to stay at this 1906-7 home of the attorney for Henry Clay Frick. I would never opt for a run of the mill hotel with this B&B as an option. Beautiful interiors, amazing service, gourmet breakfasts and a lovely bar in the original billiards room. A piece of history and you get to live it! A... More

I expected a degree of luxury. What we got was anything but. Bedding with polyester; no luggage rack; poor quality furniture and only one comfortable chair so I had to watch TV from the bed, but it was too small for the distance; terrible water pressure ( auxiliary pumps are cheap); very ordinary toiletries. If you put a lighted shaving... More

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
