Walk into a grand charming sophisticated lobby and you will see why this is an Omni property. The staff is very professional and helpful and the property is very clean. Our room was small but tastefully luxurious with a great view of the city. The bed was one that is so comfortable that you are asleep as soon as you... More

generally i'm frugal but sometimes I splurge. The william penn has real in room dining. So after the ballet and not up for moving so showered and robed we ordered late dinner. You get a table, chairs, dinner and someone to set it all up. Its worth paying for. The rooms are elegant, perhaps a bit dark, they don't have... More

First time trip to Pittsburgh. Great hotel near everything. Different restaurants right inside and a Starbucks. Would stay there again if I could get as great of a deal. Otherwise may choose a cheaper hotel with at least a pool.

The hotel has an Old World feeling in the lobby and overall, the experience was great. The rooms are small, but quiet and comfortable. The service was great, and the catered food was decent. I didn't have a choice in the hotel, since I was on business, but I wouldn't mind staying here again if I were coming back to... More

The Omni Hotel has a classic lobby reminding me of earlier days when the rich traveled. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Although we did not have time to use the facilities or restaurants, I would return just to try them out.

This hotel is very grand when you walk into the lobby. It has old victorian charm. We stayed here overnight before heading to Grove City to do some outlet shopping. My wife and I thought the hotel lobby was great but my wife complained that the room itself was a bit dark and the washroom not that big. Considering the... More

I was impressed with all the great reviews regarding the service in this hotel but we did not experience the same upon check-in. I was given my keys and that was about it. No explanation of where everything was, wifi, nothing, we had to figure it all out on our own. We'll try somewhere else in Pittsburgh on our next... More

If you like a classic pre World War I hotel, with all the trimmings, this is the American version of a something out of Downton Abbey. My room was extra spacious. Beds perfect. The breakfast was delicious. The coffee was off the charts and plenty of it too.

For a 5 star hotel, I expected more... I stayed at the Omni for 3 nighs for a business trip; the hotel was not able to accommodate rooms for my colleague and I on the same floor - which I found hard to believe. They also could not accommodate our request for king beds (either of us). GIven the price... More
