NEVER EVER give this deceptive, disgusting excuse for a hotel with “outstanding service” a penny of your money or trust them with any special moments. My fiancé spent 20 mins on the phone with them in August 2020 scheduling our wedding night hotel reservation for November 2020. Not ONCE did they mention they are STILL currently closed. There was no indication online anywhere that they never reopened, or I would’ve never even considered them! My fiancé just today got a call from some random Nebraska call center that our wedding night reservation is cancelled. The hotel couldn’t even be bothered to reach out to us directly, and now apparently on their website it suddenly says they’re closed til Jan., as insane as that is. When my fiancé called them just to make sure this was correct, the lazy, rude excuse of a front desk person transferred him on a loop instead of to the manager that he asked for, so that he ended up right where he started with no answers or explanation whatsoever. This is the customer service you get for a hotel of this reputation?! Who lets you book a wedding night package never even letting on you’re still closed?? When you call for clarity, they just send you on an endless loop of ringing phones? Obviously they couldn’t care less about customer service or screwing anyone over. For their information I was planning on staying there for my wedding night for the last 10 years, but now I never, ever will. AVOID and DO NOT TRUST because you will be purposely deceived and then left hanging. We’ve had better customer service at gas stations.

Hotel's Favorite
I stayed at this landmark hotel for my niece's wedding on November 16. From the moment we arrived at the front door, we were highly impressed with the hotel staff. The lobby is breathtaking, with huge chandeliers and ornate ceilings. The chandeliers were sparkling and clean (from a very recent cleaning I was told), and it really showed! The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating, and my room was spacious and comfortable. My only negative comment is regarding the hallway carpets - they were showing signs of wear and badly needed to be replaced. The same can be said for the drapes in the guest rooms. But other than those minor flaws, the hotel is lovely. The servers in the restaurant (for breakfast) were very professional and efficient, but not "snobby". The banquet staff that attended to every detail of my niece's wedding reception were amazing as well. I work in the hospitality field myself (many years in hotels, and currently working in convention housing), and I have to say, I was very impressed with everyone who worked there. It is very clear that Omni takes great pains to make sure everyone on their payroll is a true ambassador of hospitality (which is rare these days). Extremely professional, and yet very warm and welcoming. It was a pleasure to spend two nights at this hotel, and I would not hesitate to return there on my next visit to Pittsburgh. Well done, Omni!

We are thrilled with your comments, thank you! We did just clean our three beautiful lobby chandeliers. It is a tradition for us every November. We lower all three chandeliers (by hand crank in the ceiling!) and clean every prism by hand. We are so pleased you enjoyed our hospitality, and your niece's wedding reception. Special occasions deserve special attention....and that's our specialty! Thank you for staying with us and please come back to visit again.

My girlfriends and I had a wonderful stay. The hotel staff was professional and friendly and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. The location is ideal for attending shows at Heinz Hall and within easy walking distance to a selection of great restaurants.

Wonderful stay. I cannot day enough about the people that work there. While waiting in line someone cut in front of the line. We were not happy but the staff gave us a heartfelt apology. They were very professional. Just made us feel right at home. We would definitely stay there again.
