Had the wonderful opportunity to spend five nights in the Omni William Penn Hotel while attending the SCUP (Society of College and University Planning) Conference this year. My only regret is I didn't take the opportunity to stay a few extra nights! The hotel is easy walking distance to the convention center, many restaurants, the ball park, the theaters, etc... The staff are friendly and most helpful. The place is wonderfully historic. If your idea of historic properties is they are "old fashioned" then don't stay here. As an architect I found it wonderfully renewed without losing its historic character. Hope to get a chance to visit Pittsburgh again.

My daughter and I spent the weekend in Pittsburgh for her birthday. We enjoyed our time at the Omni and found the staff most helpful, The concierge provided us with great walking maps and information on all the sites and landmarks of the city, Cab service was fine as long as you were in a hotel or restaurant to contact them. We enjoyed the Tap room, the Terrace and the Speakeasy is a gem. We met great fellow travelers and the weekend went too quickly. Pittsburgh has much to offere . Next trip we WILL do the incline.

We used the Omni William Penn as the preferred hotel for out of town wedding guests. The ambiance fit perfectly into the Wedding theme of a "Great Gatsby Wedding". The staff was very accommodating parking Vintage vehicles, and the lobby was spectacular for Wedding photos. This is a great downtown hotel.

The William Penn is a very lovely historic hotel that has been nicely upgraded throughout. The rooms were spacious and well equipped. The staff was extremely nice and friendly. The location is convenient to multiple entertainment and eatery districts. If you are up for a bus tour of the city, the tour company picks up at the hotel.

In spring 2013, my boyfriend and I traveled to Pittsburgh for the Tim McGraw concert and some shopping. We are from Toronto, Ontario. At the last minute (2 days before), we decided to go down an extra day early and see the Penguins play the Senators in Game 2 of the playoffs. Obviously we didn't have a hotel booked for the Friday originally, but since we bought our tickets to the game we needed to figure it out. I guess this should be a review for the hotel and Hotwire. We reserved a hotel that was located in downtown Pittsburgh for $90.00 . Once our payment was cleared we received the name of the hotel, the Omni. Although we had never visited an Omni hotel before, we didn't really care what kind of hotel it was. We were just interested in having somewhere to crash after the game.

The hotel was beautiful.The staff was friendly. We checked in and the service at the front counter was great. We headed up to our room and were incredibly happy with the size of the room, the beds, and the amenities. There was a microwave, a mini refrigerator, etc.

We were running a bit late and were nervous that we were going to miss the start of the game. We hurried out of the hotel to realize that the hotel was only a 5 minute WALK to the Console Energy Center. Definitely the best part of this hotel is the location.

I would recommend staying here even if you have to pay full price. And definitely suggest it if you are ever planning to go to a penguins game.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Omni. Wonderful historic hotel. Was given the Royal Suite since I am an officer on a Board. Absolutely gorgeous. Not as close to the restaurants but the distance wasn't great to walk. The weather was good so didn't have to deal with rain.
