Stayed 3 nights at the Omni William Penn. Our deluxe room was small but comfortable. I had requested a quiet room on a high floor and my request was accommodated. The bed took up most of the space allowing for only one adult to pass in front of it to access the closet. While there was a desk with its... More

This Hotel was built by Henry Clay Frick. The hotel is on the newly renovated Mellon Square a beautiful park with fountains. The lobby is gorgeous and the restaurant right off the lobby is great. The rooms vary in size depending where you are at in the building, Years ago they renovated the hotel and redid the floor plans eliminating... More

Hair in the sink. Previous guest trash in basket in closet. Previous guest goldfish and other food on the floor. No lotion, shampoo or conditioner. Filthy carpet. Dated and depressing decor; couldn't possibly have been renovated in the 20 years. Not even a soap dish

The room was not ready and the front desk forgot to call us to say it was so we waited at the restaurant for almost 2 hours before I finally went up... More

I stayed here for a conference, and at first, I was upset that I wasn't in the "conference hotel" down the street. After checking in, I changed my mind. Pros: Staff is friendly and accommodating. They helped me find a great jogging path and then provided me with a water when I got back! Check in and check out were... More

We stayed at the William Penn Hotel on a 24-hour baseball trip with my adult daughter. The hotel is well located. It's an easy walk to PNC Park and is in a very busy and attractive business district neighborhood. Our rooms were nice and spacious. The bathrooms are small but well equipped with good showers. This is a beautiful old... More

We arrived via cab and had to drag our own suitcases up a flight of stairs. Not once did the employees standing there offer to help . The lobby is nice and it has decent food choices. Rooms were clean, but I was disappointed. A few doors down had ordered room service for lunch and it smelled awful. The tray... More

This hotel is full of history and is absolutely beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful and we had a great overall experience. The only downside is that we were a few rooms down from the elevator and could hear the dinging night/day and housekeeping must not get a list of who has checked out because they were knocking on...

We stayed here for two nights as part of a baseball roadtrip to here and Cincinnati. It was fabulous. It was a wheelchair accessible room which was somewhat odd in its setup, but it was spacious, clean, modern and well-appointed. The service during our stay was excellent -- not fawning and no snootiness at all -- just professional, friendly and... More

When I was a child growing up outside of Pittsburgh our family would sometimes drive into Pittsburgh and we would shop. On occasions we would walk through the William Penn where i was impressed by the grand lobby, the uniformed door men and smells of the restaurant. I moved away to attend college, moved to Seattle, and have not been... More
