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

What a glamorous and classy place! Where to begin??! Parking - I stayed Sat-Sun so parking in the Mellon Square parking garage was $5 flat rate on weekends. Other nights it's closer to $20. Very convenient, just a few steps away from the hotel. Lobby/Check-in - SO BEAUTIFUL. We were awestruck when we came in, the lobby makes you feel... More

The Omni/William Penn is probably the very best hotel in Pittsburgh. It combines century old charm with modern amenities seamlessly. The staff is friendly and attentive. zRooms are classy, clean and comfortable. And the Terrace Dining Room is worth visiting whether or not you're staying at the hotel. While a little expensive, the overall guest experience is outstanding.

The hotel is a magnificent building. Tasteful and historical. The rooms and baths are clean and comfortable. There are nice amenities and the staff is very nice and helpful including housekeeping, the bell staff, and the wait staff in the restaurants. The only problem is that the air conditioning is a little uneven (even hot) in the hallways because of... More

We stopped here during our one-night stay during a two-day road trip after dropping our daughter off at college, and wished we had more time to enjoy our stay here. It was more beautiful a well-appointed than we expected, and the staff was professional and friendly. The Terrace shouldn't be missed for a meal or just a quick bite or... More

The lobby is amazing. The room was small but very nice and the bed extremely comfy. Lot's of good restaurants and bars in walking distance and PNC park was also a short walk away. Hotel has a tap room with good beers and a Speakeasy that makes great cocktails. The only downside was that parking is expensive and stalls are... More

My fiancé and I recently traveled to Pittsburgh for a quick weekend retreat. Our prior trip to Pittsburgh we had stayed at the Renaissance but found our way back "home" this trip. Staying at the hotel itself is like staying is a perfectly preserved time capsule. (while still being updated with all of the newest conveniences) It's truly a grand... More

The room was large, very clean and up to date. It was situated around many restaurants and places of interest. There was always someone to help you with reservations, transportation and sites to see. There were restaurants in the hotel as well as a Starbucks. There was no noise around the hotel .

I appreciate the charm of historic hotels and the Omni was spot on. The staff experience was wonderful. They were courteous, polite and attentive. It had been many years since I we had visited the Burgh and I am sure we be back and at the Omni.
