A romantic hotel just over the river from the city. This was part of our big gay honeymoon roadtrip across the USA and we got a great welcome from the staff at reception and a congratulations card and complimentary bottle of celebratory wine delivered to our room!

Don’t be put off by the slightly run down feel of the area. Its only a short walk across the river to the city and the views from the bridge are spectacular.

By the way, if you’re a gay traveller looking for the hedonistic, queer as folk Pittsburgh, it aint here no more! (We suggest Chicago or Manchester UK!)

Charming ( but not fantastic ) hotel that is essentially surrounded by a housing project. I had read a review that complained that the hotel had homeless people out front. I thought nothing of it, I'm from New York and I'd rather stay in an urban area. But no, there is nothing really on the same block as this place except a housing project and some run down / abandoned buildings. If it was an amazing gem of a place I wouldn't mind the area as much but, though charming, it's not amazing.

Close to the Strip District in Pittsburgh, The Priory Hotel is an excellent choice for those interested in feeling the flavor of an older neighborhood. The hotel itself is timeless. A former monastery, you walk in the door and are immediately set back in time. High ceilings, beautiful woodwork and plaster, the building itself is a gem. The antique furnishings are in keeping with the history of the building. Clean and beautiful. The lobby area, dining area and our room were spotlessly clean. A perfect choice for those interested in a quiet, restfull overnight stay.

Stylish, traditional furnishings with many antiques. Not over-decorated. Staff friendly and helpful. Very interesting history of the old monastery and church.

The Priory Hotel is my new favorite hotel. The atmosphere and the service was top notch, and the charm of the hotel itself made it as memorable of a place to stay as you can get. We were kind of beat after our road trip, and we decided to stay in and just relish in the Priory. We will DEFINITELY be staying at the Priory again, and have already told all of our friends and family to stay there as well. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!!!!

My partner and I stayed at the Priory Hotel for our 4th Anniversary, and I couldn't imagine a more romantic setting! The beautiful Victorian-style decorations were like something out of a fairy tale. The staff was very friendly and helpful, even accommodating us when I was sure one of the things we were asking for was a little unreasonable. The hotel was in a good area; not too far from some of the major shopping and dining areas. All things considered it was a wonderful stay!
