We stayed here just because its the oldest. We explored the hotel and got to see all the items saved since the early 1900's. We missed the speak easy but did have breakfast in the main dinning room. Plenty of great food for a fair price. It was beautiful to look at while waiting for our food to be delivered.... More

Just got back from my first trip to Pittsburg and it was great. The hotel has history which provides a unique experience. When we checked in Sunday there was a pianist playing in the lobby and that was beautiful. Although we did not see/hear this again during our four nights. The lobby in this hotel always seems quite busy. Our... More

Beautiful hotel. Great service. Right beside the metro station. Walking distance to everything in downtown Pittsburgh. Many restaurants in the area. Loved the multiple fountains in the squares besides the hotel.

Supposed upscale destination. And in reality it is but for such a property it's average. Courteous front desk and check-in went well though due to delayed flights my party didn't arrive until 11:30 pm so the desk was not busy. Adequate room. My room had a $5 bottle of water available other rooms had free bottles. Room was spacious but... More

What can I say? A great historic hotel right in the heart of everything Pittsburgh. Obviously this is a property that is good at handling large groups (like weddings... as we saw several wedding parties on the weekend we were there). We found the staff to be most gracious and helpful. We didn't eat at the hotel but did have... More

I wouldn't recommend any other hotel other than the Omni William Penn. The lobby is beautiful, the rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. The staff is always friendly and helpful with any request you have.

Stayed at this hotel to be near a conference I attended at the Convention Center a short walk down the block. I stayed five nights. For my "discounted" rate, the room rate was still a bit high for the accommodations. Elevators are tiny. Big comfy king bed, big flat screen TV, big dresser in a somewhat tiny room for the... More

We stayed in this hotel because our daughter had her wedding reception at the Omni. From working with staff for the reception and the room reservation staff for our block of rooms, they couldn't have been more helpful! Our pre-stay experience continued when we checked in. We were continually surprised by their warm welcome and hospitality. Our room was a... More

We recently spent 2 nights at the Omni William Penn. It is a very old, renovated hotel. It has that charm that only old hotels have. It is very pretty. The check-in was quick, and when I asked for a room with a view they obliged. As I have read in other reviews the room was very tiny, but it... More
