First time at the Omni in Pittsburgh and it won't be my last. Got a great conference rate so I don't know the price of the full rate so in my experience there everything was a "great value". Pulled up to the front of the hotel - parking was getting tight at the hotel so the valet mentioned the option of parking in a nearby garage and gave the price. Valet with in/out was about $27/night which is pretty good for a downtown hotel. Check in was fast and easy. Lobby is unbelievably ornate with lots of seating areas. Elevators are some of the best I've ever experienced with regard to speed and short wait time. In my 2 night stay I never had to wait more than about 10 seconds for an elevator on any floor. Corridors were warm, quiet, and well lit. Never heard a sound from another room (yes they were occupied).
Guest room was old in architecture but modern in amenities. Large flat screen TV, large closet, large dresser, large desk - beds were comfortable with reading lights on each side. The nightstand also had a bright LED at the floor that was motion triggered - it's very handy when you have to get out of bed in the dark. Climate control was dated but had fast response time.
Bathroom was very clean - not a hint of mold or stains. Good supply of soaps, towels, etc. Toilet flap didn't always close properly so the toilet ran sometimes - and that would be my only 'negative' comment about my experience.
Hotel is within a 15-20 minute walk of PNC park and numerous restaurants. Good bagel shop around the corner, drugstores nearby, shopping district only a few blocks away all contribute to a great location. Cab to the south side took about 8 mins. Also, visiting baseball teams stay here. During my stay the Reds were here - saw some players in the elevator and Dusty Baker in the lounge (Reds' manager). All in all a great hotel - my new fav in the 'burgh.
