This hotel was very nice. We got a discounted room because we were there for a company party. I don't know, had we have paid full price if I would have felt the same. The only major complaint that I had was that for such a high end hotel, the bathroom was extremely small. It was difficult for someone to...

Very welcoming and pleasant stay overnight! Traveled into the Pittsburgh area for business and stayed at this hotel. The hotel was beautiful and the architecture in and around the area was amazing. Room was comfortable and not overdecorated.

I was highly impressed with the overall hotel experience I had with my wife at this hotel. The hotel did a great job of taking care of all of my needs. I felt the stories about the hotel added to the experience as well as our server in the tap room telling ghost stories.

Great hotel, ideal location. Rooms, service, food, and friendly staff. I would stay again, it was easy to make reservations and speedy departure. Convenient parking garage across the street or valet service. Stayed the night before a Steeler's home game, still very quiet and great service.

My wife and I stayed one overnight at the Omni William Penn recently. Our room was luxurious and comfortable. The only drawback was the lack of a nice view. Internet service was good in our room. The TV had a good picture and typical cable selection. The bed provided us with a good, comfortable sleep. The room and bathroom were...

I have stayed at the William Penn more than five times and each time was great. The rooms are very large and the size of the bathroom is great. Two people can be in there getting ready and you aren't bumping into each other. My favorite part about being there is the food. It is just wonderful. Most recently I...

The hotel is a part of Pittsburgh history, and they do a great job of promoting that through the various displays throughout the hotel lobby. When you enter, you feel the history. The room we got wasn't anything special and was a bit disappointing actually. It's out dated and feels old and neglected. Other than that, if you can find...
