I have stayed at the William Penn about a dozen times over the course of the last decade and my recent stay prompted me to finally write a review.
This is a GREAT hotel. Omni is one of the best at renovating old hotels into new and interesting places to stay and the William Penn is no exception. When you enter the lobby you can imagine what it must have been like many years ago in its heyday. It truly is a beautiful place. Yet, of course, the hotel offers all of the modern conveniences, including a Starbucks in the lobby (say what you will, but I love being near a Starbucks when I travel). The rooms are extremely spacious, always clean and very comfortable. The staff is always friendly and accommodating.
I have only ever been at the hotel for business and from that perspective, it is in a great location for business travelers. However, there are many good restaurants just a few blocks away - make sure you wander over to Market Square to eat.
Downtown Pittsburgh still has its challenges, but the Omni William Penn is not one of them. It already is the perfect place to stay!
