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!

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!

Room Tip: Stay away from 5th Avenue - even in the small mansion (there are two) ask to not face 5th.

We enjoyed our stay here. Our room was clean and spacious. There is coffee every morning in the lobby. The only disappointment was that we requested clean linens the next morning. They were just dumped on a small table and the dirty ones were not picked up. I would have expected more. The surrounding neighborhood is just beautiful so be sure to walk it when you have time. Also, the location is great, very close to downtown.

Thank you for taking your time to post about your experience with us. I do apologize for the incident with your clean linens. This is by no means indicative of our goals for level of guest service. We will look into this, and discuss with team members to ensure that such an instance is not repeated. In the meantime, should you be back to Pittsburgh and decide to stay with us, please reach out to Adam Frye, at adam@mansionsonfifth.com, to book and he will be sure that you and your companions are well taken care of.

While the exterior of this oh-so-well-located "gilded age" mansion is beautiful and impressive - the flowers and colorful umbrellas will impress you - the inside is neither attractive nor comfortable. The reception desk is about as interested in welcoming you as the old carpets throughout are old and shabby. While a tight little elevator has been installed to take folks up to the unadorned, really ugly rooms on the 2nd floor, should you be persuaded to sign up for a 3rd floor suite, you will discover that the only way up is to carry your own luggage up a tight, narrow, steep, winding, set of stairs. Actually dangerous. Good luck! And then the rooms: clean, yes but no drinking glasses; cheap, worn sheets on the beds which might (?) not have been changed and no hangers in the closet. No restaurant, no breakfast room, a bagged breakfast is handed to you and the coffee you make yourself leaves you asking the location of the closest Starbucks. While no newspapers are available and no concierge is at your service, there IS what might be called a cocktail lounge but so ugly you want to close your eyes. When you return in the evening you are likely to pass the receptionist sitting outside smoking. If you are visiting 5th Avenue, Carnegie Mellon, Rodeph Shalom Synagogue, Shadyside or Squirrel Hill, the location is super convenient but perhaps staying at a really attractive, pleasant hotel and admire the exterior of this mansion while driving past in an Uber is the way to go.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It is our goal to make each and every guest's stay as comfortable, quiet and memorable as possible, and I regret that this did not occur with your stay. Please reach out to our Senior Operations Manager, Adam Frye, at adam@mansionsonfifth.com if you would like to discuss further. In the meantime, I will point out that your experience not typical of our guests, as evidenced by other reviews on this website. As a hotel retrofitted into two historic landmark Gilded Age mansions, we need to make certain accommodations to preserve the integrity of the buildings, such as installing a smaller elevator than one would see at, say, a Spring Hill Suites. With regard to other aspects of your commentary, such as the grab n' go breakfast and disposable cups in guest rooms, we, like many hotels, have had to make changes in operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These changes are not permanent, and we will be returning to an ala carte service for breakfast soon, while glassware has already been restored to guest rooms.

We stayed in the annex but access to the main house is easy. The annex was very quiet and well appointed. The bedroom was large and the bath was spacious. The staff were great and did everything they could within Covid restrictions. We especially enjoyed the bar area.
