The hotel was nice enough and clean...or so I thought until my 9 month old zero'd in on a half eaten pecan on the carpet. Disgusting! We were not eating pecans that weekend. It made my scalp crawl, and suffice to say, I did not let my kid crawl around on the floor the rest of the weekend. The manager... More

As a central location in Pittsburgh it is an ideal location to navigate the city. Classic architecture, restaurants, bars, coffee shops and more are some of the guest friendly amenities offered. It might not be "boutique" in a contemporary sense, but it sure feels like one.

Absolutely love the William Penn's lobby ... beautiful ceilings and chandeliers in a historic hotel but yet an energetic, not stuffy (like some historic properties), vibe with lots of patrons hanging about. Efficient check-in/out, excellent valet/bell staff, comfy beds in nicely appointed rooms and surprisingly good bathrooms for an older property. Great location with plenty in walking distance. Enjoyed the... More

This is a very old, historic hotel. The valet was efficient and $32 per day. Public parking across the street for $18. Check in was fast and friendly. The hotel lobby is old world, very grand and a hub bub of activity. My room had 2 double beds, a coffee maker, fridge, and the Wi-Fi was around $10 per day.... More

I stayed at the Omni William Penn for work and it was very comfortable... I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Also, the Starbucks and restaurant (room service) in the hotel are great. The only drawback is parking is a little expensive, but it's city center.

We stayed here recently for a conference. The hotel is gorgeous and very well maintained. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous. Our room was very large and very nice! We had drinks in the Taproom (excellent margarita, btw) and enjoyed the ambiance there. Our conference offered a "Chef's Table" for a reasonable price - a great experience!! 15 of... More

What great comments! We are so glad you enjoyed the Chef's Table. We have a very talented team of culinarians led by Executive Chef Brian Riddle and we are so proud of their knowledge and skills. It's always fun to sneak a peek "behind the scenes"! Thanks so much for taking time to share your experience. More

Very nice for older hotel with exceptional staff and with bell staff being some of the best. Nice drink selection at the Terrace and Tap Room. Very nice place if need to be in downtown Pittsburgh. Great access to interstates so will work great for commuting.

My husband and I stayed at the Omni William Penn Hotel for one night, on a Saturday. It was wonderful! The hotel is beautiful, old and grand. We headed to the "Speakeasy" bar prior to our 7:00pm dinner reservation which was a really cool bar. A lot of thought and attention to detail went into this bar, everything from the... More

Have reviewed this before as we stay quite often, but had to make a note here because for all of our travel, the Omni William Penn staff concierge and bell staff continue to make this one of our all time favorite hotels. We were here over the holidays and had a great stay. It was busy and festive, but the... More
