We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the William Penn hotel. It is a well-maintained grand old hotel with a lovely lobby, courteous staff, excellent service and spacious, comfortable room. I felt we got great value for our room rate. We were in town to catch the Pens and Steelers in action. Happily, both teams won. The hotel is about...

I stay here frequently for business but wanted to review it from a personal/family perspective. I think this hotel is fantastic. Despite it being an older property, it is charming and elegant while still feeling modern enough. Overall: room was ready early, exactly as requested - signature double double. The room was cavernous (that's not always the case, I've been...

Stayed at the Omni William Penn for a conference and it was lovely! The room was very comfortable with a great city view and two bathrooms. The lobby has an attached Starbucks for morning coffee and the late night hotel bar had great snacks- try the house made chips!

As a meeting planner, I tend to view things a little differently in the hospitality industry. I may even be a little harder to accommodate, however, the Omni William Penn exceeded my expectations and made my quick weekend getaway an experience to remember. I am so thankful for the courtesy that was shown and for the feeling that I was...

Our first time traveling to Pittsburgh and we luckily picked the Omni for our stay. It's in a great downtown location close to many restaurants and made for easy travel to Heinz field. The hotel was beautifully decorated for the holidays and the staff was so friendly and helpful! Will definitely stay here again on a return visit!

This hotel was very nice. We got a discounted room because we were there for a company party. I don't know, had we have paid full price if I would have felt the same. The only major complaint that I had was that for such a high end hotel, the bathroom was extremely small. It was difficult for someone to...
