Beautiful, beautiful. The staircase and the stained glass windows were outstanding! The room was very nice. The only negative was the "breakfast" which consisted of a few oranges/apples and some of Sam's Club muffins. That was disappointing.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Mansions on Fifth. We are pleased that you overall enjoyed your stay with us. Regarding breakfast, the scaled down continental we were offering was a reflection of the COVID hangover. We have since brought back our ala carte hot breakfast service, which is available daily. Please let us know if you happen to stay with us again and we'd be happy to treat you!

I come to Pittsburgh several times a year and usually stay in an Airbnb. This was just for an overnight trip. The hotel is just gorgeous. The rooms were clean, huge and super comfortable. I was nervous having not traveled since March so I didn’t go to the bar except to peek in. It looked very nice. Employees wore masks and chairs and sitting areas throughout the hotel are spaced well to have privacy. I did see that the bar has lite fare. Service was extremely good - anytime I spoke with someone they were gracious. They have various breakfast fares available that they actually brought to the room since I really am trying to limit exposure. I think that a handicapped person might find it a little difficult. There may be an entrance that I didn’t see but the front entrance was all steps. I loved my stay and will plan to stay here again. I look forward to Covid being over so I could not act like a nervous ninny and enjoy this beautiful hotel even more!

I did not have a poor stay. However, I wouldn't stay here again. Beyond the gorgeous exterior and the breathtaking lobby, there is nothing special about this place that merits a premium price.

The mattress was comfortable, but the linens were cheap and well past their prime. (See my attached photo of the pilled cotton pillowcase.) I've stayed in $15/night hostels with better linens.

Our room, (a suite on the third floor) was pretty dingy. Stains on the rug, broken power outlets, scuffed walls, gunky desk top, and a moldy shower. The hallways were charming and bright with beautiful paintings. They need to spend a little TLC on the rooms to make them match the level of the common area.

Reception was not up to par either. More on the level of what I would expect from a Motel 6, but that has little weight on my overall opinion. I think in this day, with limited service, it would be wise to put more emphasis on a warm welcome.

It would be nice if they had cups in the room for guests to drink/brush teeth.

I was pleasantly surprised by this small hotel. I liked that it was in a mansion and within walking distance to Phipps Conservatory and the Carnegie museums (both about a 15 minute walk from the hotel). The lobby area is beautifully furnished. Check-in was fast with friendly staff to help with any questions. There is a full bar on site which serves drinks and a few small munchies but no restaurant or room service was available. The bartender was kind enough to give me some help with the local food options. She even went so far as to draw me a small map so I could easily locate the restaurants. (Thanks so much for the extra effort. It was greatly appreciated!) The walk to nearby Shadyside was only about 10 minutes. There were restaurants and bars available plus some shops. The area is safe so I didn't feel uncomfortable walking in late evening.

The rooms were clean and modern with standard amenities. I did like that housekeeping service was optional. At check-in, you were asked to chose the type of housekeeping service you would like during your stay. I was only staying in the hotel for two nights so opted out of housekeeping service.

My only real complaint was the lack of parking for the hotel. There is off street parking which is good since the hotel sits on a busy street, but the amount of parking is very limited. I only saw eight actual parking spaces. Three of these spaces were not available due to on-site construction. The overflow parking is basically anywhere along the perimeter of the property next to the fence. This is not enough parking for the amount of rooms available. I didn't appreciate having to park in a location where my car could easily by damaged.

With the exception of the parking, I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and would stay again when visiting Pittsburgh.

Thank you very much for sharing your experience with staying with us. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay by and large, and we will be sure to pass this along to our team. With regard to the parking, unfortunately we are bounded by the space that we have on our city lot. Parking is complimentary, unlike many city hotels. We will also gladly valet a car if a guest is not comfortable parking it him or herself.

Recently stayed at Mansions on Fifth in Pittsburgh for a trip to the University of Pittsburgh and it was overall a wonderful experience. The hotel isn't directly downtown, but the location is perfect if you're interested in or have business near the Universities (Pitt or CMU). The surrounding neighborhood is surprisingly quiet and very walkable. We were only a few minutes (walking) from a business district of coffee shops, bars and some boutique shopping.

We stayed in the "main" house and our room was comfortable and good-sized. They do a pretty decent job of blending modern conveniences and the history of the place. That said, if you're looking for an ultra modern hip hotel with every modern amenity, you might look elsewhere - as a personal preference we tend to look for older hotels with some history when we travel and weren't disappointed. It was definitely a bit like stepping back in time.

We had breakfast in the pub/dining room and it def exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend the seasonal pancakes. The staff was friendly and helpful when needed. The evening bartender in the pub was a lot of fun and we enjoyed the quiet back patio in the evening.

Overall if you're looking for a hotel with charm and some local history you can't go wrong at this place. Definitely would stay again!

I was quite disappointed and certainly would not call this establishment a Luxury Hotel or Bed & Breakfast. The room was very nice, but then it should be for $250+ a night. When my partner and I checked in we were asked if we wanted daily service for the room and were asked to sign a form asking for same. That should have been a clue. We stayed three nights. On the first day, someone came in and made the bed and emptied the trash. No clean towels or linens. On the second day, someone emptied the trash but nothing else, not even making up the bed. Still no clean towels.
Parking was also a problem. On the third evening, after dining out, there was some type of gathering happening and all the parking spots were taken. I had to argue with the valet to get a parking place even though I was guaranteed a spot since I was a paying guest.
We ate an a la carte breakfast there the first two days. The food was adequate, but nothing to write home about, and very expensive. The third day we went to a diner a few blocks away that was excellent and 1/3 the costs. Overall, I would say that it's a pretty place in a quiet and safe neighborhood but very poorly managed. I'm sure one can find better and more reasonable accommodations elsewhere in Pittsburgh.

Nothing good about this Valentines weekend stay. Deluxe suite was the farthest thing from deluxe. What could be wrong you may ask?
No phone in room
Stained carpet
Broken lamp
Beat furniture
No water pressure
Gym = 1 elliptical in a dungeon
But the cherry on the sundae was calling this to the managers attention who said he was mailing some kind of certificate for the terrible accommodations. Shocker:
Never received anything.
Avoid this place at all costs unless you want to experience a place that you will rate as terrible.

We had THE most lovely stay at this iconic Pittsburgh hotel. It began with appetizers, beverages & live music in the bar. We capped off our evening with an overnight stay in one of their spacious, well appointed rooms. Not only was the room quite nice, the pillows AND the bed were super comfy.

We arrived in the handicapped room, drafty and cold, wallpaper coming off the wall in the bathroom. I squished a flying bug on the wall in the bathroom this morning. Went down for breakfast that I paid for a 2 nights stay... I waitress for the whole dining room... Just about everyone was complaining about the breakfast when mine arrived in front of me, I have NEVER said " I can't eat this " You use your imagination on how my French Toast looked like. I said to the front desk we are not eating breakfast here tomorrow please take the meal off our bill... We'll see if that comes to be before we check out. The mansions exterior is absolutely beautiful the interior and woodwork is astonishing they need to put thousands of dollars into the Manion to keep it running ie. the rooms paint, plaster, heating system, the mansion needs restoration. I do hope the "cooperation" finds the monies to update the mansion. It's in dire need of it.

Impressed to say the least by this gorgeous property. Booking was effortless, checking in, quick and easy with ample parking. Girlfriends and I stayed here for an overnight birthday night out and every single one of us will be back! Lisa made our delicious drinks at the bar and made us wish we would be back in time for a night cap with her, she was top notch and the live music was an unexpected treat . 5 days later and we are still talking about the overall experience. Everything about our classically luxurious room was perfect from the charming decor and comfort of the beds to the cleanliness of the whole property. Mansions on Fifth is a must stay when visiting Pittsburgh!

The elevator does not go to that floor so you take the elevator to the second and walk up. I did not find it a problem and I am 77 years old. Help is available with luggage, etc. I stayed in a former servant's quarters and it was very spacious. The hotel is fantastic and historic, and I am sure you will find it to be more than you expected.

Hello. The complimentary breakfast includes a selection of fresh fruit, baked goods from the Priory Fine Pastries bakery, meets and cheeses, coffee, and juice. The Mansions also offers an ala carte breakfast with omelettes and other made to order items. If you have time, the made to order breakfast is very enjoyable. If you are in a hurry, the complimentary breakfast should fill you up on your way out the door.
