Nice looking, staff non accommodating, Stopped in on 3/17 for drinks and appetizers, had to wait 20 min before we had to go to the front desk to get service. food was lousy and it's a good thing we're honest. Again had to go to the front desk to get and pay our check.

We only spent one night at the Mansions On Fifth but wished we could have stayed longer. It was a truly unique experience in accommodations. Not just a hotel, the Mansions On Fifth is an early 20th century two-house estate, full of charm and elegance, with a rich history. Furnished much like it was when it was first constructed, it's...

The place is very beautiful with sculped wood work on the walls, stained glass windows, interesting artwork and a lot of history.  Reserved a 1 bedroom suite and got a standard room.  Wasn't told about the room switch at check in.  Issue was rectified by price reduction. Event Friday night with multiple guests, wasn't warned by staff about event and...

My husband and I have been visiting our children at Pitt for 8 years and always stayed at a major chain hotel in Oakland until this visit. The price was similar to other hotels and we were excited to stay in the mansion! ....but we ended up being next door in what the hotel called the "mansion next door" and...

I was in the area visiting our daughter at Pitt. We have stayed at the other main hotels on campus that are in the same price range, and this was much nicer. it is an old building, so yes, the wide stairway creaks and the floors are old :-) That is part of its charm! The room was modern with...

Creaky old mansion. Even creakier service. Definitely eat somewhere else. No bartender. Not much of a menu. I was booked here by sponsor. Won't be coming back. Had to go to kitchen to find somebody to wait on me. Wait being the operative word.

Thank you for sharing your experience. We strive to make each and every guest's'experience with us comfortable and memorable. With regard to your wait at the bar, that should not have occurred. Other staff are to cover the bar if the bartender is making food for other guests. We have looked into the situation and taken appropriate steps. Thank you...

Great night spent at the Mansions for an overnight stay to celebrate a birthday. The staff was welcoming and the room was beautifully designed. History surrounds you every place you look. Friendly on site bar was perfect for pre and after dinner drinks. Continental breakfast supplied with the option for a full breakfast. Service was slow but the food was...

I've lived 25 mins away from Mansions on Fifth forever, but didn't know it was there until recently when I wanted to surprise my husband with a night away from the baby for his birthday. We had initially booked for January but my husband had a terrible flu. I had missed the cutoff to cancel but the Mansions was gracious...

A beautiful and romantic hotel. When you drive up, the facade to the hotel does not belie what dwells within. Rich mahogany carvings, intricate plaster ceiling work and art galleries await. Each room has its own unique flare. The staff is jovial, knowledgeable, and helpful. Complimentary Continental breakfast is offered (or a full menu) with your own personal French Press...
