We stayed overnight at this hotel for a business function. When we arrived, the valets were quick to help us unload our luggage and bring us inside. The entrance is beautiful and the architecture takes you back to an earlier time. The front desk staff is very friendly and accommodated our room request to be away from the elevators. We...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 February 2017

We LOVE staying here, and most recently stayed here over Christmas. There is so much to say about the Omni William Penn. The location is perfect for anything you plan to do downtown! Going to a game? Two T station stops are within close walking distance (and it is free to the North Shore!)!! Going to a convention? You can...

This incredible gem is the definition of old-time splendor. You can even get your shoes shined in the lobby! The lobby is breathtaking, the decor gorgeous, the staff gracious and educated. It is a little on the pricey side but it's so worth it. You're right in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh at it's finest. The doorman and bell staff...

Great old hotel with wonderfully updated rooms and superb customer service. We made use of most of the restaurants, the fitness room, and the concierge and we were extremely pleased with our stay and with the quality of the hotel overall.

This is a nice hotel, the ballroom was large and spacious. My only complaint was the fact that there was no elevator or handicap ramp down into the ballroom. The staff was responsive and very helpful, the chairs tables and linens were in great shape. The room was too warm. And it took too long for the air to cool...

This historic hotel has been very well kept up. The lobby is stunning with its gold trim and shimmering chandeliers. There was a big bowl of fresh apples at the desk when we checked in. The staff was courteous and helpful with any questions. We had a suite that was complete with an extraordinarily comfortable king sized bed, mini frig,...

The William Penn is a gorgeous hotel. The lobby is elegant and Omni pays attention to every detail of your stay. There is really no need to pay extra for a view as you are right in the heart of the city with buildings all around. There is a small park across the street but not much of a view...

The building is very historic and has so many details to make it visually interesting inside and out. There is a self-parking garage right on the other side of William Penn Place that was reasonably priced (we paid $36 for almost 48 hours). The location is great, right in the heart of downtown and only about a mile from Point...

Although the room was small, it was very comfortable and had everything you could need. Able to walk nearly anywhere from hotel. Would recommend staying in this historic hotel, especially if attending a conference inside, very convenient. **Parking garage across the street has great rates!
