Loved the historical feel of this hotel. The lobby is fabulous! Good amenities and helpful staff. The room was spacious and comfy, although it was little dark because the rooms all have one smaller window. Nice and quiet; great to have Starbucks and Bruegger's available on site for a quick breakfast. Wanted to get to high tea, but didn't ever...

Very nice hotel in convenient location to Pittsburgh Pirates baseball park, the Andy Warhol museum, and the Benedum Center. The underground parking garage across the street is only five dollars on weekends.

This hotel includes a wonderful restaurant and overall has a very nostalgia feeling about it. The food and drinks are delicious and shopping is within walking distance. Very comfortable beds, traditional classic Decour, it is approximately 19 miles to the Pittsburgh international airport. The hotel has been restored to original. John F. Kennedy was known to have enjoyed stays here....

As usual, Omni didn't disappoint. Beautiful historical property. Service was excellent. The room was turned down for us when we arrived late at night. For some reason the restaurants are not as well managed at the Omni as the rest of the hotel. The host where the breakfast buffet was served was not friendly. The wait staff was slow. Overall...

I was at this hotel for a conference and it was a really nice hotel. I did get disorientated a few times getting off the elevators finding my room as it is a little maze like trying to find your room. They have plenty of locations on site for something to eat or grab a drink and walking distance to...

No issues with hotel. Loved the free wifi which worked well and complimentary coffee and tea delivered to your door each morning. Staff were prompt and friendly. Hotel was clean. Net - the hotel supported my trip and didn't get in the way or become the focus - as it should but often if not the case.

Four nights in this beautiful hotel during the U.S. Open this year. Historic architecture elegantly preserved in downtown Pittsburgh. Staff was polite, but room was not cleaned until after 5 pm one day. Small gift shop with delightful staff and beautiful selection. Fun Tap Room restaurant/bar with delicious food and drink. Incredible restaurants close by. However, downsides were very small...
