We booked three rooms and the 4th floor apartment for the weekend. The Priory is a delightful, historic hotel just across from downtown Pittsburgh with parking included. Two of our three rooms were spacious and the third fairly small but we kept it since it was so near another room. I am sure, though, the front desk staff would have moved us, if requested. They were very helpful with all our needs. My only complaint on two of the rooms was that the bathroom sink had no vanity and there really was no place to put any of our toiletries in the bath rooms. A high shelf over the toilet would remedy this. One great touch in all the rooms was the shower head was at seven feet - a real plus if you are tall. Linens were soft and the towels plush. The fourth floor is an attic room but includes a full kitchen stocked with glasses, pots and a large fridge. The main room easily handled 13 people for a couple of evenings. The hotel is in a delightful neighborhood working to come back with excellent restaurants within walking distance. The Monk bar in the hotel is open at night and a great place to hang out. Bring your bike in good weather and the Pittsburgh trail is just down the street and under the bridge. You can also easily walk to town, the Strip, the Warhol museum and the stadiums. This place is a real find and I will stay here again on my trips to Pittsburgh!
