The Omni William Penn is an excellent hotel. While the rooms are small, this is after all an historic hotel, the amenities, customer service, and elegance of the hotel compensate and then some. If you're a government employee, the Omni in Pittsburgh really shines with a rate that's competitive with inferior hotels.

Our magical evening began and ended at the William Penn! This classic Pittsburgh hotel was the setting for a friends daughters wedding and it was perfect.! The plaza across the street has a fountain just perfect for pictures and the stately facade of the hotel makes a nice backdrop as well. Pre-cocktails werein the lobby, cocktail hour in one room...

First time at the Omni and was very impressed with service and accommodations. Employees were very friendly. I would recommend this hotel as a great place to stay for business when n Pittsburgh. The rooms are comfortable and have plenty of extra space. Rooms have plenty of extras including large screen television, coffee maker, and refrigerator. Wi Fi is faster... More

This is a good business hotel, due to its central location also good for leisure visits. Rooms are convenient and normally equipped. I had to change once because of noise from an outside ventilation system which the staff did without issues. Breakfast, bar, gym are all ok, but looks like the hotel had its best years in the 90ies. Overall... More

The hotel was immaculate with large gathering areas for our business. I only had a small amount of trouble finding certain conference rooms due to the amount available. Excellent place for business or pleasure. It is normally a little pricey, per night, but we had a discounted rate for the Pitt Chem day that made it more palatable.

I would highly receommned this hotel for staff service and amenties. It is a beautiful hotel and truly an expereince to stay there. The lobby is incredible and the rooms, while somewhat small (or maybe typical) for a city hotel were clean, comfortable and well appointed.

So as a native Pittsburgher, I don't usually get to stay at the best hotels in the city, because honestly why would I need to? Well a friend of mine was getting married over Labor Day weekend at the Omni, and my wife and I figured we might as well stay over because we weren't sure what other time we... More

The room was clean and the bed comfortable, but the lighting in the bathroom was so bad I had to leave a crack in the shower curtain in order to take a shower and I didn't even bother with my makeup. If you are used to being charged for wifi, breakfast, or any other little extras, you'll feel at home... More

Got this hotel on Hotwire for a cheap rate. Location is great, right downtown, a block away from the subway. The only problem with getting the hotel on Hotwire is that you can't get free wifi which normally is available to you if you paid normal rates and have a rewards account with Omni. I made the mistake of logging... More
