Excellent place to stay for a great price. Staff is friendly and everything that I requested in usually placed in the room before I get there. The accommodate late check out and early check in whenever possible which is almost always.

Beautifully maintained Grand Dame of 1900s. It transported us to a different time. Greatly appreciated the high customer service and comfort. In the middle of downtown and within walking distance to everything we wanted to do. Excellent stay. An experience, not just a stay.

Historic hotels usually mean enjoying the feeling of history while compromising on features common to contemporary hotels, and this is no exception. The lobby area is one of the best in the United State for elegance and 1920's décor. I reserved a "deluxe queen" room ($243/day) and was disappointed when I entered a 15X10 room with one small window facing... More

Hello, Tom and thank you for your feedback. We like that you complimented our lobby; we agree it can't be beat! We do have a few rooms on the smaller size given the age of the hotel (100 years in March 2016!) and the renovations that have occurred over the years. If we have availability we are always happy to... More

Omni William Penn is an excellent choice when in Pittsburgh. It's a convenient location to great restaurants and a short walk to the heart of Pittsburgh's cultural center and sporting venues. I highly recommend it.

This property feel like a piece of history, but it is not musty, old or run down. The room we had was very spacious and the housekeeping and front desk service was first rate.

I have been visiting Pittsburgh for years for various venues but especially visiting my Alma Mater, Duquesne University. The Omni Penn is a kingdom in downtown Pittsburgh. Services, location, ambiance, food, and parking! Grand in every way!

I enjoyed my stay. The room was clean, and well maintained. The service was excellent. I asked for non-feather pillows and they were waiting for me upon arrival. The food in the hotel was excellent and unique. I cannot say enough nice things about the hotel.

After reading about the history of this hotel as well as the glowing reviews, we had to check it out. They just don't build places like this anymore.

This is a beautiful, old hotel in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet - and reasonably priced. But the prices at the in-house restaurant and bar are ridiculous!! Glass of the house cabernet was $15.50, and moscato was $12!! When we questioned the waitress, she acknowledged that Omni overcharges for drinks. Food was good,... More
