I recently stayed at this hotel on a business trip. And I must say that as cold and wintery as it felt outside the service was as warm and inviting on the inside. After a quick and courteous checkin I entered my room which was larger than your standard/average hotel room. Spacious, warm and inviting is how I would characterize... More

Did a one nighter here this week which was my first visit. Had a small dinner with a group of business associates from around the world (20 people). Open bar, hors d'oeuvres and dinner. The dinner was good, bar service excellent and dinner service superb (quiet and unobtrusive). Table was set nicely and wait staff was accomodating to requests "on... More

I live in WV and travel to Pittsburgh for business and always stay at the Wiliam Penn. I have been staying here for over 15 years and the staff has mostly been the same and know our little group of people that have been visiting here for years by name. I love the older rooms that have not been remodeled.... More

Firstly, I wish that I had read the reviews which suggested the preferred program. The staff was helpful, kind and professional. The hotel lobby is magnificent and I was very happy that it included a large Starbucks as well as a few other options. The room, although recently renovated, was extremely small. The bathroom included a nice makeup mirror but... More

Because I am a resident of Pittsburgh, I had never stayed in the William Penn's guest rooms prior to this weekend. I am happy to report that our romantic getaway was a wonderful experience. When I registered on the phone, the staff member encouraged me to enroll in the no-cost preferred guest program. What a treat; I highly recommend. We... More

I took my best friend to this hotel for her birthday. They treated us terribly. I am trying to get our money back and hope I can. I'm so sorry that I didn't pick another Pittsburgh hotel but I'm hoping that we can fix that soon. I would encourage anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in the area not to... More

We were driving to Pittsburgh to escape the blizzard and get a flight to Florida. We booked the room through Hotwire while driving and took our chances since we were not familar with the area. What a beautiful hotel! The staff was so friendly and helpful. They were great with dining suggestions and airport parking recommendations. We had forgotten small... More

A group of adults stayed overnight for a celebrations. The hotel was beautiful from the moment we walked in the lobby. Some of us had stayed before so we knew what to expect. We choose to upgrade our room for a premiere king suite. We went to the Speakeasy on the WP level which was neat. It had some unique... More

My husband booked the romance package and we were really impressed with the hotel and service. We had a corner, King room on the 14th floor with a city view and it was beautiful. The room was very clean and I enjoyed sitting by the window watching the city life below. As other reviews state, the bathroom was small, but... More
