This hotel was centrally located and had clean, spacious rooms. The hotel lobby is beautiful and the staff was very friendly. I was grateful for the good water pressure, comfortable beds and a decent hair dryer. The gym was well equipped and the bars had good drinks and service. Breakfast is paid for separately so I opted for the bagel shop that connects to the hotel on the grant street entrance. There are many good restaurants in the area as well. I would recommend this hotel for families, business and solo travelers.

Hotel's Favorite
Comfortable stay with good service and clean nice rooms. Front desk was very quick to respond when I had issues. Woody and colleague women at the front desk were all especially polite and attentive. Did notice that calling hotel from outside, phone just rang and rang with no pick up. Arrived after 9pm and bar/restaurant was newly reopen till 11pm post covid. Good bartender brought soup and chicken wings that may have been best I had in recent memory. Will stay again at this grand historic hotel.

If you're the kind pf person who reads the historical displays in hotels and appreciates a glamorous lobby, this is the hotel for you. Conveniently located, great staff, and lots of fancy places to sit! Our room was extra large and had two bathrooms, to our surprise. The hotel had just reopened, so the restaurants weren't open, but the staff was obviously happy to be there.

The common areas of this hotel are all very nice and well kept. The guest rooms themselves are a bit older and feel a little dated. The vibe of the hotel is definitely conference hotel, although it is a very convenient location in downtown.

Well located in downtown Pittsburgh. Gorgeous lobby, a great place for drinks. Staff is very helpful and informative. Hotel has gallery of photographs illustrating its past, including numerous illustrious guests (e.g.former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, etc.). Rooms very comfortable.
