The hotel is one of the nicer hotels in Pittsburgh - we have stayed there twice now when in town for weddings. It's right in the downtown/business area and always feels busy.

We had the breakfast buffet one morning - the service was great and the buffet gets the job done. We also had drinks at the bar, Speakeasy. Drinks were creative but there were only two staff for the bar so they seemed a little overwhelmed.

The hotel is huge and old but we have a nice time (and often get turned around when trying to get back to the room). The hotel could use some updating and the walls are pretty thin. I could hear the people in the next room coughing all night. I also found the room to be warm, but that happens frequently for me.

Definitely a great option when in Pittsburgh.

Overall, the quality of service and amenities exceeded our expectations! My husband and I were there this past weekend to attend a couple enrichment workshop and everything was perfect, A big shout out especially to our gentleman server who took care of our meals. (We personally told him that yesterday morning.) Second shout out to our housekeeper who kept our room cleaned. Just a little note to the manager though: you may need to check the shower faucet. It dripped non-stop from the time we checked in and even after the housekeeper cleaned and tidied up Saturday morning. Our hotel room number this past weekend was 1050.

Thank you for your complimentary review and your shout outs to our associates. We are fortunate to have a great team of people on staff. We do appreciate you giving us your room number and letting us know about the shower. Our engineering team is already on the case to fix it. If your travels bring you back to Pittsburgh, we hope you will once again consider us for your accommodations.

We stayed here as part of a wedding group. Not our usual style, but we were not disappointed. If you are going first class then this is the place. Staff and service was excellent. Parking was right across the street. Be sure to sign up for rewards program.

What a beautiful place to stay and it's centrally located for easy access to the city. We had such a wonderful time and would recommend this hotel to anyone staying there. I was a guest at a wedding there and it was the PERFECT venue.

Recent two night stay here was great. The hotel was amazing with overall helpful staff. The rooms were great. I had a room with two beds, doubles so keep that in mind. I had a great person take my reservation on the phone so she had pointed that out when I booked the room, so it wasn't a surprise like it was to other friends who were staying there as well. Lastly, it is in a great location.

Beautiful, historical hotel in the heart of downtown. Very elegant and comfortable with excellent staff and amenities. If you can imagine old style charm with warmth and everything you need to make you feel welcome, you are thinking the Omni William Penn.
