Expected a LOT more for $300 (incl tax). Breakfast amounted to an Otis Spunkmeyer muffin with an apple. Our suite had a window that was so dirty you couldn’t see any detail to the outside. We assumed we’d have a robe in the room and didn’t pack ours - wrong :-( Dorm-room like bathroom . . . Lifeless place, truly!
Every single staff member went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful stay. Friendly, kind, all went above and beyond to make sure we had a blast! Interesting history and such a pleasant change from your chain hotels. Go and enjoy!
I was pleasantly surprised by this small hotel. I liked that it was in a mansion and within walking distance to Phipps Conservatory and the Carnegie museums (both about a 15 minute walk from the hotel). The lobby area is beautifully furnished. Check-in was fast with friendly staff to help with any questions. There is a full bar on site which serves drinks and a few small munchies but no restaurant or room service was available. The bartender was kind enough to give me some help with the local food options. She even went so far as to draw me a small map so I could easily locate the restaurants. (Thanks so much for the extra effort. It was greatly appreciated!) The walk to nearby Shadyside was only about 10 minutes. There were restaurants and bars available plus some shops. The area is safe so I didn't feel uncomfortable walking in late evening. The rooms were clean and modern with standard amenities. I did like that housekeeping service was optional. At check-in, you were asked to chose the type of housekeeping service you would like during your stay. I was only staying in the hotel for two nights so opted out of housekeeping service. My only real complaint was the lack of parking for the hotel. There is off street parking which is good since the hotel sits on a busy street, but the amount of parking is very limited. I only saw eight actual parking spaces. Three of these spaces were not available due to on-site construction. The overflow parking is basically anywhere along the perimeter of the property next to the fence. This is not enough parking for the amount of rooms available. I didn't appreciate having to park in a location where my car could easily by damaged. With the exception of the parking, I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and would stay again when visiting Pittsburgh.…
I had the pleasure of Attending a Beautiful Wedding on June 4,2022 I found this event to be absolutely breathtaking. From the Valets to the bartenders and the wait Staff what great service and so personable. The appetizers were plentiful and delicious. The table settings and rooms were just breathtaking and so elegant. The sit down dinner was delicious and was Served hot What an excellent job done by all. I highly recommend this to anyone for a nice intimate event Loved it. Thank you
Disappointed, made arrangements to stay in the main building but got caught off guard, because there was a wedding they're, so my room was changed to the other building, my disappointment was there was no offer of a discount for the inconvenience. My whole purpose of staying there was to enjoy the mansion, not the house next door, disappointed.
We had the opportunity to stay one night, the room assigned, was on the adjacent building and it was terrible. Room was big but A/C was not working/humidity spots in the walls/ a bug in the bed. We called front desk and said they were going to work on the AC, never solved. They offered a 10% discount for the bug!
We had a group of people stay here to watch some live music and the reception was fantastic. The staff was excellent and so was the food. I’d definitely recommend Mansions of the Fifth! We had a blast!
We enjoyed our stay here. Our room was clean and spacious. There is coffee every morning in the lobby. The only disappointment was that we requested clean linens the next morning. They were just dumped on a small table and the dirty ones were not picked up. I would have expected more. The surrounding neighborhood is just beautiful so be sure to walk it when you have time. Also, the location is great, very close to downtown.
While the exterior of this oh-so-well-located "gilded age" mansion is beautiful and impressive - the flowers and colorful umbrellas will impress you - the inside is neither attractive nor comfortable. The reception desk is about as interested in welcoming you as the old carpets throughout are old and shabby. While a tight little elevator has been installed to take folks up to the unadorned, really ugly rooms on the 2nd floor, should you be persuaded to sign up for a 3rd floor suite, you will discover that the only way up is to carry your own luggage up a tight, narrow, steep, winding, set of stairs. Actually dangerous. Good luck! And then the rooms: clean, yes but no drinking glasses; cheap, worn sheets on the beds which might (?) not have been changed and no hangers in the closet. No restaurant, no breakfast room, a bagged breakfast is handed to you and the coffee you make yourself leaves you asking the location of the closest Starbucks. While no newspapers are available and no concierge is at your service, there IS what might be called a cocktail lounge but so ugly you want to close your eyes. When you return in the evening you are likely to pass the receptionist sitting outside smoking. If you are visiting 5th Avenue, Carnegie Mellon, Rodeph Shalom Synagogue, Shadyside or Squirrel Hill, the location is super convenient but perhaps staying at a really attractive, pleasant hotel and admire the exterior of this mansion while driving past in an Uber is the way to go.…
We stayed in the annex but access to the main house is easy. The annex was very quiet and well appointed. The bedroom was large and the bath was spacious. The staff were great and did everything they could within Covid restrictions. We especially enjoyed the bar area.
