I wish to pass along my sincere "thank-you" to management & staff for an awesome stay at the Priory. The "date night package" accommodation were outstanding (WOW! on the seasonal-trim) dinner at James Street Gastropub was fantastic and the breakfast was another WOW and the staff was warm & friendly. The room with it's awesome view of the Pgh. sky-line...

I recently stayed at the Priory with my fiance. We were in Pittsburgh to see a Steelers game and to check out the Casino. We felt The Priory was nice and friendly. The Hotel is old but clean. We were only diappointed with the lack of knowledgable concierge services. The shuttle is convenient but books up fast on weekends. The...

I have been told about the Priory for years. Mostly from friends who enjoy early American buildings. The Priory is a restored monastery. The restoration is very well done. If you decide to stay, walk the halls and think about the monks when they first arrived at their new home. The architectural detail is fantastic. If you are looking for...

Our suite was adequate. The hotel is located in downtown Pittsburgh across the street from a multi-story government-subsidized housing unit. The Priory has a very small, unsecured parking lot adjacent to the housing unit's parking (on the other side of the Priory parking lot is the interstate). The hotel also has a secured parking lot which requires guests to walk...

The facility is a joy to stay at when you want to be near downtown Pittsburgh, PA. They are very refined. It is quiet and restful. The rooms are well decorated. I would mention that you may want to pay up for the king beds because the smaller bedrooms come with a very small room for the shower and toilet....

I stayed at the priory and found the building to be charming and the staff to be courteous, if not necessarily friendly and welcoming. The hotel is a converted monastery and because of its historical nature, has the potential to be a 5-star attraction, but the lack of attention to details and the run-down nature of the rooms left me...

First, I extend my sincere apologies to this guest. Our goal is to make each and every guest stay as comfortable and as pleasant as possible, and clearly we did not achieve that here. I will contact this guest directly to discuss these matters further. We will take a hard look at each and every item that this guest discussed...

The front desk was prepared for our arrival so check-in took just a minute. Then, when we opened the door to Room 124, we said, "Wow! Look at all the space!" Spotlessly clean, fresh, absolutely quiet with a large, comfortable bed. Free parking! Fabulous shuttle service! We'll stay there again in a heartbeat!

I traveled with my girlfriend and daughter to Pittsburgh to celebrate her grandmother's 90th birthday. We stayed at the Priory hotel and it was overall terrific. I only have several minor issues with the it in my opinion, but I'll start off with the great things. The hotel was converted from a monastery, and has been beautifully decorated inside. The...

The Priory is a pretty special hotel. The location is perfect for exploring the city, and the downtime you spend at the hotel gives you a delightfully surprising sense of history and place. The kind staff, beautiful renovations, and cozy little bar, are some of the much appreciated details that give this place an easy, warm energy and a subtle,...

We loved this hotel. Spacious rooms, brilliant wi-fi, great location. The most useful addition was the complimentary shuttle service which saved us lots of time and energy trying to find parking when going out in the evening. Thank you for a lovely stay - made the business much easier.

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?
