Mansions on Fifth…a swing and a miss. only warm water (never hot) low water pressure in shower cheap fixtures in bath (TP roll, towel bar) TP holder in wrong place shower curtain too short (really? no glass shower??) One small piece of art in a large room. Absurd. no hand towel holder next to sink One bar of soap… no soap in shower (should be wall mounted shampoo, conditioner and body wash) soap dish absurdly high in shower no place to put foot for shaving stained carpet cheap sheets that are also too old mediocre soft mattress ugly and too small center ceiling light (Looks like Home Depot) Room looks old…Dated. TV sitting on mantle with visible cords. Very unprofessional and unattractive. Clearly an afterthought. Hanging clothes only for shirts, suit. No long hanging for dresses Cheap single serve coffee maker, and plastic cups. No towel bars or hooks in shower room (where do you put your towel for a shower?) So many things so clearly not thought through with guests’ comfort in mind. This is not a luxury hotel. This is a grand building that was renovated but seems as if they ran out of money to decorate appropriately and with a discerning clientele in mind. Foyer in main building is sadly decorated. Recessed lighting that is way too bright, few lamps, and no main table…just a pitiful grouping of tables that look like they were purchased at Home Goods in the middle of a nice but too small rug with four enormous chairs. Very odd. The woodwork is grand and gorgeous but very dark brown. It desperately needs to be warmed with rugs, interesting woven fabrics with color, fresh flowers and lamps around the room. Soft music should be playing to set the tone upon arrival. None of the people who work behind the desk are dressed professionally, nor do they act as if they have been trained to do this job. Our first impression turned out to be indicative of the rest of our stay. When we pulled up, in the rain, the person greeting us just stood there…holding the door…and just watched us unload our things. In the rain. Never offered to help. This place just made us feel sad. It could be truly wonderful but misses the mark in nearly every way. Btw, I’m an interior designer. Boy could I help them turn this place around in a hurry. Oh…wait. The avocado toast is divine. And I hear the bar is also great.…
Every single staff member went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful stay. Friendly, kind, all went above and beyond to make sure we had a blast! Interesting history and such a pleasant change from your chain hotels. Go and enjoy!
The Mansions on Fifth hosted our wedding on Saturday, 2/11/2023. I genuinely could not have imagined the wedding going off any more perfectly or in a more perfect venue. From the very beginning Adam (Hotel) and Zach (Events) were attentive, understanding, and always kept in communication. I never felt like it was hard to get ahold of them or that I was a bother. Adam helped to organize the room block and explain how it works in depth - even when I continued to have questions! He took to the time to take phone calls when I needed it and did his best to walk me through the steps necessary to best prepare for the guests for our wedding. Zach, in charge of the events, was more helpful that I could have asked for. When we had issues with the bakery - Zach was there to help. When we had questions about how to run a wedding, he was there. Zach always communicated changes and needs - and helped make decisions with my preferences in mind. During the wedding day - Zach made sure to bring me my favorite (and only drink I could have) when I ask throughout the day - and even when I didn't ask! They even made sure to set aside enough of the alcohol needed to make sure that the guests didn't use it and make it so that I could still get my drink throughout the night. Zach (and Gabby!) made sure that the entire day went off without a hitch. I couldn't have imagined this day without them. For anyone inquiring about Mansions on Fifth - I cannot recommend them enough. They are absolutely fabulous and I couldn't be happier with our decision to have our big day there. …
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.
Expected a LOT more for $300 (incl tax). Breakfast amounted to an Otis Spunkmeyer muffin with an apple. Our suite had a window that was so dirty you couldn’t see any detail to the outside. We assumed we’d have a robe in the room and didn’t pack ours - wrong :-( Dorm-room like bathroom . . . Lifeless place, truly!
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.…
I had the pleasure of Attending a Beautiful Wedding on June 4,2022 I found this event to be absolutely breathtaking. From the Valets to the bartenders and the wait Staff what great service and so personable. The appetizers were plentiful and delicious. The table settings and rooms were just breathtaking and so elegant. The sit down dinner was delicious and was Served hot What an excellent job done by all. I highly recommend this to anyone for a nice intimate event Loved it. Thank you
Disappointed, made arrangements to stay in the main building but got caught off guard, because there was a wedding they're, so my room was changed to the other building, my disappointment was there was no offer of a discount for the inconvenience. My whole purpose of staying there was to enjoy the mansion, not the house next door, disappointed.
We had the opportunity to stay one night, the room assigned, was on the adjacent building and it was terrible. Room was big but A/C was not working/humidity spots in the walls/ a bug in the bed. We called front desk and said they were going to work on the AC, never solved. They offered a 10% discount for the bug!
We had a group of people stay here to watch some live music and the reception was fantastic. The staff was excellent and so was the food. I’d definitely recommend Mansions of the Fifth! We had a blast!
