Reviewed yesterday NEW

We enjoyed everything about the hotel except for the late night dining food. We paid $40 for something we did not eat. The valet, desk attendant and employees were very nice. The night we checked in there was an event so we could not be accommodated to eat in the Tap room. We had a party of 13 total.

Our train from DC arrived late and try as we could, there was not a taxi to be had at midnight on Easter Sunday. Phoned this hotel and the night clerk gave us clear directions to walk to there and a warm welcome awaited us. The next day we had excellent food and service in the hotel's pub.

We arrived by Amtrak train and had to only walk about 5-6 short blocks from the station to the hotel. From the moment we walked into this historic hotel, we were wowed by the beauty and splendor of the hotel. The spacious lobby is something from a by gone era with it's marble floors, tall ceilings with ornate details and...

Hotel is beautiful for this area. I've been in many other hotels in Pittsburgh and this is one of the best there! Omni always does a great job with an easy check-in process, meeting and exceeding customer needs. The hotel staff was very friendly. The dining area is beautiful. Beds are very comfortable and pillows are comfy as well. You...

The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Our children were treated like kings. They were given good bags upon arrival and milk and cookies at turn down. The location is perfect and you're able walk to lots of attractions. The rooms were very clean and spacious.

We just returned from our stay at the William Penn and it was absolutely amazing. The staff are very attentive, the valet service is super quick to bring your car, and the the lobby made for a lovely place to relax and have drinks every night. My daughters especially enjoyed the nightly warm cookies and milk left in our room!...

Just spent 3 nights at the Omni. Drove up to the valet parking and they came right over and got all our luggage unloaded & brought it right up to our room. Check in was quick and we had a room on the 7th floor. The hotel itself was very nice, restaurants, shops, banquet rooms, everything impeccably clean. We had...

This is a beautiful hotel with a lot of history . It is within walking distance of many restaurants and attractions. They have valet parking , but you can self-park right across the street. Do try to get a room with a view of something other than a brick wall.

Rich in history, character and charm. The bell hops reminded me of the 30s. Excellent service. Very comfy bed and pillows. The room had a quiet location, clean, spacious. Perfect. Centrally located within the city for getting out and about on foot. In hotel food/drink service great for late night snacking or nightcap.
