I lived in Pittsburgh for 34 years and had never visited the Priory. I moved to another city and recently brought a date back to see the Three Rivers City. We stayed at the Priory because she wanted a "city" experience. What a wonderful surprise the hotel was. We had a large, clean, charmiingly furninshed room overlooking a small, courtyard with a fountain. We could also see the stained glass window detail of a church that was once housed in the hotel's Northside complex of buildings. There is a cozy bar serving a variety of unique cocktails, and an excellent continental breakfast is included in the room rate (the pastries are all from a local bakery also belonging to the hotel's owners). Another welcomed service was the gratis hotel-operated shuttle that drove us to/from a variety of sites. The driver was very knowledgable and provided details about the city that even I didn't know after all my years of living there! The only negative was that the bathroom was quite small. I highly recommend the Priory to anyone who wants a memorable hotel stay while visiting Pittsburgh!
