At the center of the downtown, this historic hotel is a real gem in the midst of bustling city. The grounds are immaculate. The service was excellent. Food very good overall. Parking during the day is the probably the worst part of the stay (as there is no cheap parking close by and many of the garages will be full... More

We recently traveled for a college visit. Hotel is perfectly situated and very nice. No complaints room clean and quiet. Free wifi would have been nice with a high school student. I would definitely recommend the hotel to others visiting the city.

very stunning; gorgeous hotel. HUGE rooms; joining as well. Think betwn the 2 rooms we had 1500 sq. ft. +. Ate in the pub for dinner; decent food. Walking distance to their subway or underground transit; to the point/park; and water fountains/parks in city. This is a very historic, older property; just charming-Gorgeous on the outside!

I had stayed at this hotel about 15 years ago and did not have high hopes given the age of the property but my two night stay was superlative in all respects and I highly recommend this hotel, particularly for business, in Pittsburgh. From the valet parkers, to check-in to maid service, all personnel encountered were friendly, prompt and welcoming.... More

The Omni William Penn is a quintessential big city, grand hotel. It's impressive in size, with an opulent lobby, classy service, and great location. The lobby areas feature plush carpets, chandeliers, and gilded mirrors. (There's also a Starbucks, which is nice!) The room was spacious and well-appointed, and the bed was very comfortable. Our view was interior, but it didn't... More

We were staying at another hotel but while walking past the Omni – we noticed they had a speakeasy type bar. We didn’t expect much, but really love it. It was downstairs in a roped off area. We were escorted to the room – it felt very exclusive. The room was small, dark and intimate. The service was great, and... More

The William Penn still has it! The staff was both polite and helpful. The lobby and Terrace Room are charming, and the location is perfect for doing business downtown. I have stayed at the WP for over thirty years and I always enjoy it.
