Reviewed today NEW

The William Penn is a gorgeous hotel. The lobby is elegant and Omni pays attention to every detail of your stay. There is really no need to pay extra for a view as you are right in the heart of the city with buildings all around. There is a small park across the street but not much of a view...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 February 2017

We LOVE staying here, and most recently stayed here over Christmas. There is so much to say about the Omni William Penn. The location is perfect for anything you plan to do downtown! Going to a game? Two T station stops are within close walking distance (and it is free to the North Shore!)!! Going to a convention? You can...

Reviewed yesterday NEW

The building is very historic and has so many details to make it visually interesting inside and out. There is a self-parking garage right on the other side of William Penn Place that was reasonably priced (we paid $36 for almost 48 hours). The location is great, right in the heart of downtown and only about a mile from Point...

Although the room was small, it was very comfortable and had everything you could need. Able to walk nearly anywhere from hotel. Would recommend staying in this historic hotel, especially if attending a conference inside, very convenient. **Parking garage across the street has great rates!

Stayed at the hotel for a work conference that was held at the convention center. The hotel is a quick walk to the convention center and lots of shops, restaurants, and sites. Valet parking can take a few minutes as the main entrance is on a pretty busy street. The Tap Room is a good place to grab dinner/a drink,...

If you're looking for an elegant hotel reminiscent of a bygone era with a high level of service and attention to detail, the Omni William Penn is the place to stay in Pittsburgh. Convenient to everything downtown and in the center of the business district, I have always been highly satisfied with my stay.

The hotel was very fancy and we were given an upgrade without even asking. Checkin was very pleasant and helpful. We chose it because it was within walking distance to the ppg paint center. Would highly recommend it.

Great hotel with friendly staff and wonderful, historic atmosphere! Restaurants had very good food and the location is very centrally located in downtown Pittsburgh. Great home base to visit the museums and sites that downtown has to offer!

We had a wonderful stay with the romance weekend package at the Omni Pittsburgh. The champagne and strawberries were a great welcome. We enjoyed the dinner in the Terrace Room and our server Haris really went above and beyond in his service and recommendations. The breakfast buffet had all of our breakfast favorites. Lastly, the 5pm checkout was the best...

From the valets to the cleaning people, this place rarely disappoints. But on this trip, we had several issues. We had a Christmas / New Years stay here and found it difficult to find food on both, despite advertising for it. 2.5 hour wait for "24 hour" room service, which I'm sure was directly tied to the fact that you...
