Havertown, United States
Reviewed May 9, 2016

The hotel turned 100 years old during our stay. The ornate walls, ceiling and chandeliers provide a charm and elegance modern hotels do not possess; however, everything has been updated to provide all the modern conveniences (WiFi, Cable, etc.). Our Yorkie also enjoyed the stay and the staff made a fuss over him.

The hotel was lovely and clean, the room was a good price compared to nearby alternatives, and check-in and check-out were convenient and pleasant. The Speakeasy bar downstairs also had a nice vibe and tasty drinks.

We stay at the Omni William Penn in Pittsburgh for the Pittsburgh Marathon weekend. Won't stay anywhere else in Pittsburgh. Excellent hotel, excellent staff. Good location. Very comfortable.

My friend and I got a great deal for this hotel on Groupon, so we stayed a night and attended the symphony at nearby Heinz Hall (4.5 block walk). The two bed deluxe room was huge, had two nice puffy chairs and an ottoman, a gigantic TV, fridge, and a very nice bathroom. The interior of the hotel is beautifully...

Nice place to stay! Rooms are big and comfortable. My bed was good. The hotel is close to public transportation, cultural district. Andy Warhol museum is in a walking distance across the bridge. The hotel is convenient for business events too. Good food, friendly and helpful staff.

Stayed one night during a long weekend. Room was large and clean. Fantastic lobby. Centrally located downtown made it easy to get around on foot. There were several eating options on site but didn't try any of them. Could easily self-park across street from entrance in underground parking for $5/day if entering after 4 p.m.

Thanks for choosing the Omni William Penn for your get-away weekend! We invite you to return and enjoy the talents and skills of our culinary team in the Terrace Room, Tap Room and Palm Court. A stop in the Speakeasy for a throw-back cocktail is a must! Hope you will wander back our way soon!

Beds are too small, hotel does not offer free wifi. The location is very difficult to reach downtown. Bathroom was extremely small, could barely move around when door was shut. Lobby is deco nicely and room, but could have been a little more cleanly in bathroom. Valet parking was good, but attendants constantly had their hand out for tips. Room...

Wonderful hotel in the downtown Pittsburgh area. Beautiful, clean, and well run. Highly recommended. I was in town for the Pittsburgh half marathon. The hotel was a perfect location for that event. We were able to walk about town to Strip district, restaurants, and the Incline. And as a long-distance runner, I came to the hotel for the location, but...

The overall stay was more than adequate. The staff you would come across were all cordial and accommodating. The coffee maker in the room did not work properly and the brand of coffee was subpar. Go to the Starbucks in the lobby, thank goodness they opened at 0500!
