The Wlliam Penf was better than I expected and all of the services were topself. Best place to stay in Pittsburgh. We loved the history of this grand hotel and I will recommend it to my friends if they should be staying in Pittsburgh.

I have stayed at the William Penn Omni many times and have never had a bad experience. This is a beautiful hotel and has a great staff. It is in the heart of the downtown district which makes it very convenient. The location is great for any activity in the downtown Pittsburgh area & surrounding areas. It's also accessible to the major highways. Close to shopping as well. Macy's is a block down. There are many restaurants within walking distance. I highly recommend this hotel. If you have never stayed at this hotel, it is worth trying. As for what needs some work and improvements: 1. The gym. It's small and cramped compared to newer hotels and other Omni's. Also, there is no pool

We love historic hotels, and the William Penn is beautiful. The room we had was very spacious, with a sitting area and 2 double beds. The staff were very friendly and efficient - valet service for our car was the fastest we have ever experienced! Breakfast in the Terrace Room was great - good service and excellent food. We were in town for a wedding, so did not have the opportunity to use other services, but I am confident everything else would be well-run as well. If we are ever in Pittsburgh again, we will definitely stay at the William Penn!

We stayed here for my birthday in a suite with a king sized bed. The staff are pleasant. The rooms were large and clean. I recommend this hotel to everyone. No one can go wrong with this hotel. I will be booking another room here next time I'm in Pittsburgh.
