Stayed for a family wedding in a room that was part of the package. Hotel staff was super friendly and everyone interacting with our family (which I loved). They brought cookies and milk daily which our toddler and 4 year old loved. High noon tea was fantastic and recommended

We were on the 14th floor facing the water fountain. Nice view, spacious room. state of the art fitness center. We were there to see the Phillies play. Easy walk to Market Place where all the eateries/bars are. Easy walk to PNC Park.

Room Tip: Higher floors would be good for the view.

I've stayed at the William Penn 3x now and the last time I booked through one of the discount booking services. Unfortunately, the room was subpar. I didn't even realize that this hotel had these kinds of rooms - I suppose they all do. The room was tiny especially compared to their other king rooms. The ice maker and vending machines on my floor were broken. Then, I shortened my stay due to a strong cigarette smoke smell coming from the bathroom which happened twice over the course of my 2 night stay. Ugh. The hotel offered to change my room but at that point I just wanted out. This stay was for my birthday and it was a huge disappointment. I love the upper floor rooms but after this, I probably won't stay here again. If you plan to stay, just make sure to get a good room (9th floor or higher)!!

Room Tip: Don't book through a discount service and request back side rooms - they are quieter.

Thank you for choosing the Omni William Penn. We do have a variety of room sizes given the age of the building and renovations over the years. This was a special visit for you and we regret that we did not meet your expectations. We value your patronage and hope you will choose to stay again when you return to Pittsburgh.

Friendly full service hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. Low turnover among staff; and they recognize you when you return. Good location for some shopping. (Macy's, Larrimors, and within a long walk/short cab ride to the Strip area. Great location for restaurants.

Needed a getaway. Went to Pittsburgh, Pa for a weekend. I stayed at the William Penn Hotel. It was beautiful, clean and the staff was more them caring. I would highly recommend this hotel for its historical setting as well as all that is mentioned above.

Very comfortable stay. Great roomservice. Food was good though room service as always was a little pricy. Stay for the quality service, come back for the gorgeous celings. keep writing for the arbitrary 200 character requirement.
