We had a great experience. All the people working there were very friendly and helpful! The Mansions are beautiful, and the food and drinks were outstanding. We loved the location. On our first night there, there was a private event at the bar/restaurant but the staff still got us drinks immediately since we were guests, and gave us options in the mansion were we could enjoy them away from the private party. The room was very nice, and the beds were comfortable. My only feedback is to have drinking glasses available in the rooms (I needed one for water). I had to grab a plastic cup from the bar.

Hotel's Favorite
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.

Response from John Graf, General Manager at Mansions On Fifth Hotel
Responded Mar 31, 2023
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!

My wedding on August 5th, 2023 was amazing! My husband and I couldn't have asked for better service or experience. Wedding planning was definitely stressful, but the Mansions staff did an exceptional job with everything. Marissa, Zach, and Gabby were great to work with and made everything run smoothly. Zach, one of the day of wedding coordinators, was phenomenal and an absolute pleasure to work with. He setup all our décor, made sure the vendors were present, and kept everyone and everything on schedule. Zach catered to everything we needed, even on our wedding day. The food at Mansions was amazing and all our wedding guests raved about the hors d'oevres and dinner entrees. The chef did a wonderful job with providing everything we wanted. We also had a late night pizza snack. The Mansions hotel and property itself was breathtaking and the Presidential Suite was a perfect accommodation for the bride and groom. My husband and I are so happy to have booked our wedding at Mansions on Fifth in Shadyside and don't regret a single thing about it.

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.

On the one of the hottest days of the summer, the air conditioning did not work in this room. At 3:00 am the temp the room was 78.5 degrees. It was supposed to be a luxury hotel, how could this be happening. I found the next morning that this room was always warm. The AC did not work according to this service staff person. Don’t recommend. Nice old building, Beautiful wood work, good breakfast. Considerable water damage in bathroom.

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!

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.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We endeavor to ensure that each guest's experience with us , and we are sorry that we did not live up to that standard with regard to your stay. Thankfully, the vast majority of our guests report very pleasant experiences. We would like to point out that certain aspects of your review are, unfortunately, flatly inaccurate. For instance, we replaced every box spring and mattress in the hotel in the last four months. Those items are brand new. The same with the sheets, which are sourced from the same vendor that supplies Ritz Carlton and Fairmont Hotels. We will certainly review your critique carefully to ensure that we might continue to improve, and again, please accept our apologies that your stay did not live up to your expectations.

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.

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!

We are disappointed that your stay with us was less than satisfactory. We endeavor to make sure that each and every guest's visit is as comfortable and quiet as possible, and we do apologize that we did not live up to that standard with regard to your stay. That said, the Mansions on Fifth Hotel is a historic adaptive re-use of two Gilded Age mansions, and there are some advantages that new build hotels have over ours, where we have to make the space adapt to the use. By and large, our guests are thrilled with their experience with us. As noted, we are very sorry that we did not achieve that goal with your stay.
