I drafted my review before reading some other reviewers' comments and was struck by how many reviewers employed the same words I did to characterize the William Penn. Okay, onto my review: I stayed here for a business function. It’s an elegant hotel, particularly in the lobby area, although other aspects of the facility are somewhat wanting. Not inadequate, just...

Wonderful hotel! Rooms were large and well furnished. I liked the little extra things that they had, such as reading lights that fold down from the headboard and a floor night-light that activated when you stepped out of bed in the dark. It was also a very interesting hotel to walk around. I enjoyed the Grand Ballroom, the mural in...

David, thanks for the terrific review! We loved that you highlighted a few of the "little extras" that make staying with us special and memorable. Our Heritage Hall, just off the main lobby, is a treasure trove of memorabilia, photos and artifacts that tell the story of this 100 year old hotel. David, thank you for staying with us and...

Reviewed 30 April 2016

Hotel is old but elegant. Service and food is exceptional. Rooms are dated with small bathrooms and need for a facelift. Lighting is old and dim. The common areas are much nicer than the rooms. The service makes up for any deficit in the building.

This is a great hotel and I recommend it for a comfortable and charming stay in Pittsburgh. The room quality is excellent and the staff are responsive to guest requests/needs. Its location is its ultimate asset. The LRT station is across the street. There's a Jamba Juice, Starbucks, etc on the hotel property and something like three or four Au...

Was there for one night after a wedding. We splurged and got a suite, two large rooms, great bed. Bathroom was oddly set up and small. Great breakfast buffet. Only complaint was that I had to get my car at 3am and returned at 5am with no bell staff and no one at the front desk.

My wife and I spent the weekend in Pittsburgh and stayed at the Omni William Penn Hotel. The hotel is beautiful, historic, and the staff was excellent.

There are few hotels in the US that exude old world charm and elegance and this hotel has both. The rooms are so spacious and well furnished that I thought the hotel upgraded me by mistake. Location is also conveniently located. Definitely an iconic symbol for Pittsburgh.

Omnis are generally great and this one is no exception. This is a really nice hotel for any occasion. I stayed for a conference but I think it would be ideal for weddings and other parties. The food is pretty darn good, especially considering the conference served meals buffet style. I would imagine that events with served meals are also...
