I love the architecture of this hotel. The room was lovely and the staff were great. The checkin was quick and our bags were in our room before we were. The lobby was gorgeous with old school charm and style. We were in town for two baseball games and the hotel was in walking distance to the ballpark as well... More

A spectacular old hotel with an an air of both history and mystery. Reading about the hotel provides intriguing tidbits about who has stayed there...Truman, Eisenhower, JFK, to name just a few! Enjoy an old fashioned cocktail in the speakeasy (which was literally sealed up during prohibition) or afternoon tea with the ghosts of Pittsburgh society.

I booked this hotel last minute and I am so glad it is where we stayed. When we walked in there was classical music being played by a live band and the entrance was just stunning! The staff was very friendly through check in and got us to our room with no issues. We had a king room and the... More

We had a couple of days in August with nothing planned so spur of the moment decided to visit Pittsburgh. And we are glad we did. We chose the William Penn Inn (aka Omni) in downtown Pittsburgh for a three night stay. Could not have had a nicer time. The brunch at the Omni was absolutely one of the best... More

Generally a great place to stay, this visit was marred by a rude desk clerk and, once we turned one of our beds down, a stained (and possibly soiled) bed linen. Calling the desk for a fresh sheet did not work, they were too busy to get one to us in 45 minutes and tired we went to sleep in... More

I booked this hotel for my husband. He attended a Pittsburgh Steelers game recently and needed a place to stay. The place was beautiful and close to Heinz Stadium. I was able to book during a flash sale that the hotel was having so the price was really reasonable. I will look to stay at the Omni again.

I've stayed here many times and this is my preferred place to stay in Pittsburgh. Its in walking distance to many downtown bars/restaurants/stores, etc. Console Energy Center is about a half mile away. The building has history and interesting architecture. The rooms are always clean and decent size. The staff is extremely helpful & courteous.

Def would stay here again! Right downtown and next to subway, restaurants and bars. Staff was extremely helpful (considering I wasn't sure where everything was!) and they were there to please and make sure my visit was a good one. Very beautiful hotel and I would recommend the stay to anyone. The bloody mary bar was awesome as well as... More

Stayed overnight to drop my child off at school. Our room was pleasantly large and spotless. The response on our requests for additional towels was immediate. The staff as professional, and we met some great people at the bar. The Brueggers Bagels and Starbucks was a great bonus too. Parking across the street was $5.00 a night. A real bargain.... More

A friend had her wedding at this gorgeous hotel. It has undeniable charm with ornate detailing everywhere you look. The reception/cocktail spaces on the 17th floor are beautiful. Room was a good size, clean, and bed was comfy. The only con was that you could hear the central air sort of cycle on and off throughout the night. This did... More
