The hotel was a big surprise in how nice it was inside and out. The room was larger than anticipated which added a really nice elegant touch. The decor in the hotel lobby and even in the rooms more than speaks for itself. The classic architecture and designs make the Omni a place that should be treasured as well as... More

We had a late lunch at the Tap Room where the service by our waiter Ron, was outstanding. We upgraded our room, which was a good decision. It was very large and comfortable.... More

The William Penn is a wonderful hotel, it is beautiful and the service was impeccable. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are visiting the wonderful city of Pittsburgh. Be sure to visit The Speakeasy on the lower level, the bartender....Dawn is amazing.

Excellent property in the grand old style. Large lobby with multiple well-upholstered seating groupings and the mandatory grand piano harkens back to the era of when hotels were the center of everything lush and worthwhile. Pittsburgh's Waldorf-Astoria!

Beautiful inside and out! Large spacious rooms which were immaculate and extremely comfortable. Friendly staff and great location. Concierge very knowledgable and helpful. We are looking forward to returning for additional trips to Pittsburgh and staying at the Omni!

My wife and I stayed while visiting our grand son at Carnegie Melon over a weekend. Comfortable, quiet and clean room. Good location. Staff were friendly and attentive. The lobby and the Terrace Room are beautiful and spacious inviting to relaxation. I would go back.

The minute you walk in the hotel, you will notice the “grand” lobby with lots of comfortable sitting areas and free Wi-Fi. There were live music performances in the lobby in the early evening during our stay which was really nice. Free in room Wi-Fi if you are Omni members (you can easily register and become a member online) which... More

Older hotel but nice enough. Asked for a Queen room...Seemed smaller than that (bed). The room was awkward - corner room that was long & narrow but it was fine as I was there for business and spend a majority of my time in meetings. The meeting spaces for the hotel were nice, sufficient. Cold, as meeting spaces usually are.... More
