Centrally located, great stay, would recommend, lovely. Recommend the east side of the hotel. Great service and people, lots of history. Walking distance to pirates or steelers and much more. Shuttle service is great also.

This place is more than a B&B, but less than a full service hotel. It is old but well maintained. As with all old hotels, the (comfortable) rooms are not uniform in size or layout. Some of the bathrooms are a little cramped. There is a very small bar off the cozy lobby. Breakfast (that's all there is) is a...

I travelled with my wife to Pittsburgh. What seemed like a good idea for hotel turned out to have missed the mark. The curtains were falling down and the breakfast was a disappointment. The staff however was super friendly (although unable to help with the wifi -- not a reason here for a bad review in itself. I actually thought...

My wife and I stayed here in June 2011 so my review is based on that stay. We were in town for a Pirates game and this hotel met our needs. The front desk attendant (I believe his name was Willie) was friendly and professional. The room was a bit tight but we knew it was going to be that...

We happened upon this place via Priceline. The photos looked great and the price was very cheap, so we gave it a try. We were SO pleased and surprised by how lovely this hotel was. Extremely nice staff, quaint and lovely rooms, and such a unique and fun style. Lovely small and intimate bar. 24-hour fitness center. A+ all around....

After comparing prices and amenities at various hotels in the Pittsburgh area, The Priory was by far the best! I stayed at The Priory twice in the past two weeks for job interviews in Pittsburgh and had a great experience both times. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and comfortable, not to mention quiet! The breakfast selection is great, and I...

My boyfriend and I decided to take a spur of the moment weekend getaway to Pittsburgh the weekend of January 13. Upon searching for hotel recommendations I came across The Priory Hotel. It looked like a perfect hideaway. And that it was! A true Pittsburgh Gem! The staff was excellent (even when I called to make the reservation they couldn't...

I love this place! A very unique hotel built in the late 1800s, as a monastery. My room was on the main street right behind the front desk, but was still quite quiet. The room even had antiques in it. There were original monastery antiques in the hallways and the refectory, which was used for the breakfast room. I asked...

This hotel is wonderful. The staff is so amazing and I felt right at home. The monk's bar is a great place to meet other travelers and the bartenders were great. The breakfast room was so pleasant that I lingered every morning and read the newspaper or a book. Can't wait to go back!

The Priory Hotel was a 10 out of 10 experience for us from the minute we arrived. Michael at the front desk was ready to recommend plenty of restaurants for dinner and even arranged for us to take the courtesy hotel shuttle to dinner and back. He directed to us to the hotel's bar, which is-- true story-- the smallest...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A former Benedictine Monastery, the Priory Hotel is a boutique hotel located in the heart of Pittsburgh's historic Deutschtown district. Built in 1888 (with a new addition which opened in January 2011), the Priory offers late 19th century historic ambiance, with all of the modern amenities, including flat screen televisions, in-room safes and coffee service, and complimentary hard wired and wireless Internet service. The Priory is within easy walking distance of many Pittsburgh attractions, including the Andy Warhol Museum, National Aviary, PNC Park and Heinz Field, and is less than a mile from downtown Pittsburgh. The Priory Hotel offers a complimentary European-style Continental breakfast every morning; parking is complimentary as well. Don't feel like leaving the property? Our Monks' Bar is open daily, and you can enjoy a cool drink in our cozy sitting room (with a wood burning fireplace), or out in our garden courtyard. ... more   less
