We were back in Pittsburgh and again stayed in the wonderful Priory (which we reviewed several years ago). By chance we arrived unaware that our stay coincided with the Priory's "third Thursday" wine tasting dinner events. We were lucky enough to be able to join the event as it started, and it was a special treat, highly recommended. But, for...

My husband and I don't like chain restaurants or chain hotels (unless we have no choice.) We knew we wanted to visit Pittsburgh to go to the National Aviary (we are avid bird watchers.) I got online and searched for a hotel in the downtown area that was not a chain. This hotel popped up almost immediately. Of course I...

The hotel is located in a peaceful area, and has free parking slots. The hotel interior is nice, the staff was hospitable and helpful. Our room was nicely decorated and had a unique and great athmosphere. Really appreciated the free transfer to Pittsburgh downtown with a minivan.

As a fellow innkeeper, I tend to find myself being critical of other hotel/inn experiences. Well... I can assure anyone reading this review, that John Graf does it right! The Priory is quaint, yet upscale. Comfortable and inviting. Spotlessly clean. And ever-so accommodating to guest needs. (including the free shuttle ride to the Eagles Concert!!!). The walled courtyard was a...

This hotel is not a chain hotel in the middle of the city with a large restaurant and bar. It is a quiet, boutique hotel that feels like a country inn that costs half what the large chain hotels would cost and the breakfast is free. The rooms are decent size and kept very clean as was the bathroom. The...

We stayed in a small but very comfortable suite on the first floor overlooking the enclosed courtyard garden. Across the street parking was free as was the shuttle that was available to drop you off at a museum or restaurant and pick you up when you're done. A decent complimentary breakfast is served which can be eaten in the courtyard...

Stayed for five nights. Walk to PNC Park to Warhol to downtown from comfortable accommodations and a good breakfast (included) which can be consumed outdoors in the hotel courtyard.or take the shuttle. It is in a city neighborhood which we found safe and walkable.It is a unique property and we have nothing but pleasant memories.

This was our second time staying at The Priory. This time we brought some good friends with us and they loved it as much as we did. Staff goes out of their way to be helpful and courteous. Great location for walking around plus there is a free shuttle to take you places that are too far to walk. Love...

The place was beautiful, filled with a lot of antiques and old photos. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was small, but very comfortable. Super comfy bed and the complimentary breakfast was outstanding - German style with cold meats, cheese, hard boiled eggs and fruit. Perfect. The atmosphere directly outside is less than desirable but completely safe. I only...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A former Benedictine Monastery, the Priory Hotel is a boutique hotel located in the heart of Pittsburgh's historic Deutschtown district. Built in 1888 (with a new addition which opened in January 2011), the Priory offers late 19th century historic ambiance, with all of the modern amenities, including flat screen televisions, in-room safes and coffee service, and complimentary hard wired and wireless Internet service. The Priory is within easy walking distance of many Pittsburgh attractions, including the Andy Warhol Museum, National Aviary, PNC Park and Heinz Field, and is less than a mile from downtown Pittsburgh. The Priory Hotel offers a complimentary European-style Continental breakfast every morning; parking is complimentary as well. Don't feel like leaving the property? Our Monks' Bar is open daily, and you can enjoy a cool drink in our cozy sitting room (with a wood burning fireplace), or out in our garden courtyard. ... more   less
