Great experience from the staff and great convenient location to the all the attractions in the downtown area. Pittsuburgh is really a growing town with many great restaurants and attractions. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying the downtown Pittsburgh area.

My wife and I were in Pittsburgh to visit family about 20 minutes outside the city and were not sure about staying close to our children or enjoying a nice hotel at a good rate in the city. We selected the city and were very happy. Our past experience with an historic hotel at the Omni in Boston was disappointing...

The William Penn Hotel obernight stay was excellent. The decor is very elegant with an original 1920 vibe. A spacious room with 1,5 bathrooms, clean and comfortable bed. The Staff was very helpful and accomadating. The location was easy to get in and out. Make sure to checkout the Speak Easy on the lower level. Fun!

When traveling for business (i.e., on someone else's dime), I usually stay here, as it is a beautiful historic hotel that is within walking distance of anything in downtown Pittsburgh. My room is typically ready when I arrive (~noon), even though check-in isn't until 3 pm. On the downside, it is a bit pricey. Save money by parking in the...

I had the pleasure of staying at the Omni William Penn Hotel on a business trip recently. It was a beautiful property....reminded me of an early part of America's travel history. Staff was very attentive and the new Bruegger's Bagel restaurant / with Jamba Juice located right off the lobby is a welcome addition to the property.

The Omni William Penn is always a great place to stay when in Pittsburgh. The food in the Terrace room is delicious - and the new chef's menu for the wine versus beer dinner was superb.

My favorite part of the stay was the Speak Easy, Quality, service and a good size drink made this a place to come back to even if not staying at the hotel.

Yes, 100 years old hotel. All VIP people from USA stayed here for a while. They don't have so many facilities like a pool or spa or gym. But the location is awesome. You can feel the history inside, in the middle of a fantastic city like Pittsburgh. The price is not affordable for everyone but one in a while...
