In addition to meeting some Pittsburgh Steelers in the lobby (!), I enjoyed everything about my stay at the William Penn Hotel: accommodation, food, staff friendliness, location near excellent cultural centers and fine restaurants. I got a great price break with my conference package and plan to recommend the hotel to my friends and relatives.

We stayed here because of a convention we needed to attend. The rooms are beautiful and overall the staff are top notch. We ate in several places in the hotel and the quality of the food was excellent. We would stay here again, if we came for the same convention.

Overall our stay was very enjoyable. I was a little upset that there was not a food service in the hotel that was not so expenses. If you are on a expense account it may be Ok, but if you are paying with your own dime it is to expensive. $13 & $14 for a hamburger is to much.

The lobby of the hotel is breathtakingly beautiful. The rooms and halls are a bit dated looking. My room window faced a wall on one side, which as a bit of a disappointment. The desk staff were very friendly and courteous.

Facilities, accommodations & staff outstanding. Everyone so friendly and helpful - a very pleasurable stay. Need more lights/outlets in rooms and better directions to restaurants. Lots of stairs could be challenge for those with walking difficulties, but many elevators, never waited for than a minute.

This hotel lived up to our expectations. It definitely is a first class facility and our experience was pleasant from check-in to check-out five days later. The bell staff was exceptionally efficient and responsive to our needs, and the concierge desk was helpful with local information and directions.

Beautiful historic hotel. The location of the hotel was convenient to business, restaurants, and entertainment. The room was clean and had plenty of space. The restaurant was quite busy and understaffed. It was nice to have a full Starbucks right in the hotel.
