The hotel is a part of Pittsburgh history, and they do a great job of promoting that through the various displays throughout the hotel lobby. When you enter, you feel the history.

The Omni at Christmas takes you back to the turn of the century. Wonderful historic hotel that is comfortable. Nice views of the downtown area. Starbucks and bagel shop on street level. Enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner in the Terrace Room.

Fun to be downtown during holiday season - great hotel with old world charm. Staff very friendly and helpful when needed. Stay out of the way when you don't need help. Very clean halls, elevators and public restrooms.

This is a beautiful facility with quality restaurants and decor. The rooms are large but bathrooms are sometimes small. Try the brunch on the weekend. This is a delightful stay in the center of Pittsburgh. A delightful hotel with great service.

We love this hotel for its rich history and class, but it is the staff and the service they provide that is the true gem of the hotel! This hotel has perfected the in-room dining experience, if you like getting treated like a VIP I highly recommend staying here.

This isn't JUST an historic old hotel, it's an extremely well-run and elegant hotel which is comfortable,functional and welcoming for contemporary guests. The lobby is an oasis in the desert of downtown Pittsburgh, with restaurants, bars, cafes, and great meeting spaces in the hotel itself.
