The Inn on Negley
Ranked #1 of 11 Pittsburgh B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 September 2013

This is a lovely B&B. Our room was very clean and well appointed. The breakfasts were delicious. We thought the chef was amazing....great French toast, eggs, omelets, fresh fruit, etc. There is a lovely patio in back beautifully planted where one can read and relax. There is afternoon tea and cookies as well as wine at 5. We would return.

Room Tip: We stayed in Cortland (all rooms are names of apple varieties) with a king bed

We are 12 sorority sisters who have traveled widely, both separately and together and we are pleased to report that the Inn on Negley most definitely lives up to its reputation. The rooms are individually designed, charming and comfortable and the amenities, like comfy robes and pillow choices are lovely. Breakfast is especially good. Service is excellent and staff is friendly without being intrusive.
Location is perfect, close to Walnut Street shopping and restaurants and a short drive to Pitt.
Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Only twin bedded room is the "Arkansas Black" room. Bed sizes vary and some are quite hig...

My husband and I have never stayed at a B&B before. I thought they might be stuffy and uncomfortable with to much interaction with the staff or homeowner. I could not of been more wrong about the Inn on Negley ! The owner is one of the sweetest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting ! The staff is wonderful also ! They do every thing they can to make your stay as comfortable as can be . They all seem to really like their jobs and each other and work very well together.
The Inn itself is a beautiful place, tastefully decorated, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious as well as a work of art. I took a picture of my food before I ate it ! It was that pretty! I am so glad we stayed there. I would highly recommend the Inn to others !

Inn on Negley has deep. plush layers of traditional decor in a spotless, gorgeous historic property. An easy walk to Walnut Streer's lively mix of shops and restaurants, you get the best of all worlds. The Empire room on the 3rd floor was a quiet oasis. Big comfy room with a big bathroom and a great shower, lots of counter space and Occitane products. Excellent breakfast served at your own table. Several dishes available in addition to the continental. Also a nice wine hour each evening. Friendly staff. A good choice even if you don't think you're a B&B type.

If you are new to visiting Pittsburgh or returning again, there is no better place to stay. In the beautiful neighborhood of Shadyside, this little gem is tucked away. Easy access to dining and public transportation to downtown as well as the Cathedral of Learning and Phipps Conservatory, this is the perfect location! The rooms are wonderfully appointed and the hosts seek to meet your every need. It is very quiet and peaceful here. I would return and highly recommend this B & B!!!

My wife and I have stayed at many Bed & Breakfast Inns over the years, but the Inn on Negley in Pittsburgh is one of the very best. We stayed in the Cortland Suite. It was well appointed, beautiful, and roomy with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The bathroom was also well designed and very large.

The staff is extremely friendly and all jump to help when you have a question or concern.

The breakfasts were excellent. And unlike many B&Bs, they gave you a choice of two or three possibilities every day that you would select the night before. The main breakfast selection changes from day to day and were all wonderful.

The only drawback to the Inn on Negley was it's location. Not because the Inn is in a bad neighborhood, or is out in the middle of no where, because it is within easy walking distance of a number of restarurants and upscale shops in a very nice area. But simply because if you want to see any of the major sights in Pittsburgh, you will have to drive to them. But that is more a function of Pittsburgh, and not something any B&B in Pittsburgh could "fix" -- it's just how the city works.

An excellent B&B and well worth a visit!

Thank you so much, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We agree that it is too bad all of Pittsburgh's great attractions are spread out, we would pull them all in to our neighborhood if we could! We hope that our central location in the city at least made the drives to attractions on all sides of us fairly easy. For those without cars, or preferring public transportation, we are a quick walk away from a major busway. Thanks again!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This B&B lives up to all the superlatives by previous posters on this site. Let me add a few specifics that might be helpful to future travelers.
- You have to book through the hotel's website (not Hotels.com, etc.), which is really a request for a reservation that is confirmed later by email from the hotel.
- The Braeburn room is on the first floor off by itself, near the office, but you won't be disturbed as there is very little noise.
- the 4 poster bed requires a two-step footstool to climb into. Not a problem for us, but wanted to alert others for whom it might be. The king bed extremely comfortable.
- Room is spacious -- no problem finding places for suitcases. Nice sitting area/desk.
- The free wireless works well.
- Bathroom has plenty of counter space for toiletries and a lighted makeup mirror (which I thought was hung a little low). Walk in shower is great. L'Occitane toiletries (and extras given during turndown service).
- All employees super-nice and helpful.
- Thermostat is in your room, so you set your own comfort level.
- Good choice of restaurants/bars available a short walk away, also a Whole Foods and drugstore.
- Free hot tea and coffee available at all times downstairs. Free ice tea and cookies in the afternoon. Free wine and cheese about 5 p.m. on Fri. and Sat.
- Free parking (though lot is small)
- Free breakfast cooked to order (chosen from options on a card the night before).
- Notice I'm commenting on "free." Other Pittsburgh hotels cost less BUT charges extra for parking, wireless, and breakfast, so this hotel really is comparable in value.
We would definitely stay here again.
