We stumbled upon the Omni William Penn Hotel when we were in Pittsburgh for a concert. We found it to be an amazingly wonderful hotel. The interior architecture is gorgeous. The best part though was the night sleep that we got. It was the most comfortable bed that we have ever had. I can't wait to go back!

This hotel is a classic big city hotel in a small city. I love the grandiose lobby and all the classic designs. The staff is very good and efficient. The restaurants and bars are all very comfortable and well staffed. Rooms are very nicely appointed, although I wish they had queen beds instead of doubles in the double rooms. The...

Needed a downtown hotel for a conference I attended. Got really lucky and scored two nights at the Omni William Penn through one of the blind booking discount sites. Service was attentive and courteous. Check in was efficient and accurate. Free WiFi only in the lobby, paid WiFi in the rooms. I had a double bed room, and it was...

Our 31st wedding anniversary weekend stay was also the Omni William Penn's 100th anniversary celebration. I received e-mails about all the special events and booked our stay for Friday through Sunday. We were very excited about all the events at the hotel, the Annual Home & Garden show at the convention center as well as the St. Patrick's Day parade!...

Very happy with a weekend of luxury. We stayed, walked to Heinz Hall to see Jay Leno, and walked back. Love Pittsburgh - so much to do - and the Omni is right in the middle of everything. Valet Parking is very helpful, doorman service, and just walking into that beautiful lobby takes away all stress.

We always make a special trip to Pittsburgh for the St. Patrick's Day parade. This hotel is perfect! The parade goes right by it. Love the décor - love the breakfast buffet and the bar also has great corned beef sandwiches.

Excellent stay at OWP. Staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Concierge stayed on phone with us to help us get to hotel on a Friday at top travel time as many roads closed due to construction and parade. Staff took care of our requests (needed a fan and AC adjusted). We prefer a more firm mattress but we slept well....

We had an opportunity to stay a night at the William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. We had been there before, but each time is a treat. There's something about a historic hotel that gives it a warmer feel and character. The decor is early 20th century, but with modern appointments. Baths are modernized, but small. The basics are well...
