This is a beautiful hotel in a great location with exceptional service. It's walking distance to many venues that you can visit in downtown Pittsburg. My wife and I travel a lot and both of us agreed that this was one of the nicest hotels we've stayed in.

This is a great hotel in the heart of the city. The hotel amenities are at the top of their game. All staff was very accommodating.

A friend and I stayed here after a concert at Heinz Field, most of the closer hotels had a 2 night minimum and were VERY expensive. We ended up staying at this beautiful 4 star hotel for much less than the Hilton would have been, and the William Penn is far nicer. The parking garage is literally right across the... More

Pittsburgh's Omni William Penn Hotel is the queen of Pittsburgh hotels. It's one of those grand hotels with a marble lobby, huge chandeliers and lots of old time elegance. The owners have kept it up to date. It is located perfectly in city center across from Mellon Square. It';s a real jewel in the beautiful City of Pittsburgh.

The Omni William Penn has a wonderful old-world charm. You walk into the grand lobby and almost feel you have been brought back to an earlier era. The decor of the lobby and the rooms fit the period piece. But the hotel is large and old and the rooms have a smell of mildew, some more than others, and mostly... More

We travelled to Pittsburgh for a Pirates game and stayed at the Omni. Easy walk to the park, cheap parking (for the weekend) and nice room for the stay. Price was about what was to be expected for a downtown hotel with lots of amenities... Would I stay again? Yes - but at a better price
