“A Wonderful Experience in Pittsburgh!!!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

The Omni William Penn is a delightful hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. This is my third visit and I will continue to come back. It is not your average hotel. The history, character, and ambience are enough to make you stare in awe at it's greatness! You could just sit in the lobby and admire the hotel! The guestrooms are large and grand as well. This will always be my #1 place to stay in Pittsburgh!

Authorizing my company's credit card was a bit of an issue and caused me some time away from my business meeting to clear up. Otherwise, room was really nice. Nice view, comfy bed, nice towels and linens.

Poor value for cost. No amenities to speak off. Billed extra for every little detail. Shredded towel in bath. Hotel ran out of stuff. Remote for TV not working when I checked in. Lots of little things -- nothing major. Problem was cummulative.

The William Penn Omni is a beautiful facility. There is no question about that. When we arrived however, the front desk stated there was no king room available, which is what we had booked. We booked through a third party (Expedia) and were told they didn't have to honor that. I ended up calling Expedia and they offered me a $20 refund - OK better than nothing. We went to our room and found stains on the comforter. I took pictures and returned to the front desk. Lo and behold, coincidently a King room had just become available - yeah right. This was at 11:30 pm. We moved and our new room was just fine. We went to the speakeasy downstairs and the service there was fantastic as were the drinks. We stay at Omnis whenever possible and will most likely return to this one if we are in Pittsburgh. Our experience is not typical of an Omni hotel.

The Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA was a great choice for our national convention. I stayed a week and can't say enough for how attentive the bell staff were. All of the hotel personnel were extremely professional. The food for our meals were very good and enjoyable

What a wonderful weekend and treat to stay at the spectacular Omni International, great location, food is excellent, service is superb. The hotel itself is extremely beautiful with so much architectural detail. It's hard to take it all in. I was not feeling well and a little hurried and stressed. 30 min. into our arrival the stress went away and the room was so comfortable - we couldn't have been more pleased. Love this hotel and the convenience to everything including walkable areas. I felt like royalty.

We stayed here for our 11th Year Wedding Anniversary (Steel being the 11th year anniversary gift) in June and really enjoyed the Hotel and the City of Pittsburgh. What a grande hotel and a beautiful city. My first time in Steel City and I was taken by the grandeur of the Hotel. The ceilings are to be admired in the Terrace Restaurant and in the Lobby. Service was excellent. Location and parking very convenient to where you want to be in the center of town. There was a baseball game that evening and found out they would close one of the bridges to cars for pedestrians. We rode the incline (which is a must do if you are here), saw several trains go by, took an all day city tour, dined at the Grand Concourse Restaurant one afternoon, walked through the Arts and Music Festival by 3 Rivers and did the other exciting touristy things to do. I highly recommend staying at this beautiful historic hotel that is in the center of where all the action is in Pittsburgh.
