The hotel is a converted mansion, with fireplaces in some of the rooms, and antique or antique-style furniture. The location is convenient to Shadyside, Carnegie-Mellon and Pitt. Service was extremely friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was better than average. We found the wifi frustrating and unreliable: it kept cutting out. Everything else, though, was lovely.

Lovely old mansion turned into B&B. We were there for a wedding and spent 3 nights and saw many rooms occupied by friend and family. Some rooms are lovely with lots of and remodeled bathrooms. Others not so much. The third floor in the main building is not served by the elevator which is more like a dumb waiter. Only... More

Charming, located walking distance to CMU, which was nice, but lacking certain amenities I'd expect at a hotel at this price. No full length mirror, poor room lighting, no bolster or extra pillows on bed--and only 2 uncomfortable chairs for sitting--so nowhere to read or relax. No elevator--we were on the third floor. Had a valet help us in with... More

Mansions on Fifth used to belong to a wealthy Pittsburgh family, and is now a lovely hotel. It's not a place that has brand new, state of the art furnishings and appliances. If that's what you want, you should stay elsewhere. However, if you want a place with old-world charm, try Mansions on Fifth. The woodwork alone is just beautiful.... More

Wonderful historic building with elegant wood carvings, beautiful stained glass windows, multiple fireplaces, and a sweeping staircase. Staff was extremely helpful. My cell phone stopped working and a staff member let my girlfriend use theirs for an out of country call! We were too late to order from the kitchen but one of the staff brought us some fresh veggie... More

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

We recently selected the Mansions on Fifth for our rehearsal dinner, our entire family and bridal party to stay here for the weekend, and for a Sunday brunch following our wedding. When we selected the Mansions, we were working with an amazing employee that promised us a discounted rate and was very very nice. She left the company a few... 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
