Ok, this place totally depends on where you're from and where you've been. But I'll start with the objective stuff first. We had 2 rooms (1303 and 1304 - suite) on the third floor which is a staircase hike. The suite is split level with the "living room" window being the "attic" you see from the front of the building.... More

Absolutely the WORST PLACE WE HAVE EVER STAYED!!!!! The staff has NO CLUE what they are doing! They had everything from my name wrong to my email address! They charged me $25 a night to make up a pull out couch for my two children that was a single mattress! We stayed for a weekend in August for a family... More

We looked forward to our rooms reading the hotel description and hearing that each one was different than the other but they lack the magic of an old mansion and are instead very similar to those of any older hotel. The air conditioning system was controlled elsewhere than from the room and was set in both rooms to a freezing... More

This hotel is a beautiful old house but unfortunately has fallen under the hands of some heartless and very business/ money oriented management and lacks absolutely all soul and charm you are probably looking for in a "bed and breakfast" old mansion. We love local hotel and always search out unique and charming places in our travels. While on the... More

My family stayed overnight while touring nearby Carnegie Mellon University. We stayed on the third floor in a two bedroom suite. The Room was just as pictured online- everything was very clean, updated, and new in appearance. The air conditioned worked great and there was even an addition fan placed in the room. The attached bathroom was marble tile and... More

My husband and I stayed here in July when visiting family. We love staying in hotels that have a story. We had originally booked at the Ace Hotel, but decided to try here instead. The location was arguably better, however, the hotel missed the mark. This is a lovely old mansion with some beautiful details that have been restored or... More

We booked three nights at Mansions on Fifth and decided to make a splurge and have two suites. We arrived tired and hungry and received a warm welcome at reception however we were then led to a dusty old staircase and had to climb up three floors! We came down and had an enjoyable evening in the bar although were... More

Short trip for a Basebase ball series. Pirates vs Cubs. We only had the opportunity to stay 2 nights. The location is amazing. The Mansion is beautiful the staff is very attentive. We arrived after 11pm and the staff was waiting for us. The help with our luggage, and getting us to our room and settled in for the night.... More
