Stayed here for one night by myself. Was beyond gorgeous! Everyone was so nice, gave me a tour etc. they have a bar, library, chapel all in the same house! They also have valet parking which was a plus. would definitely stay again!

This mansion is the perfect backdrop for a wedding or party. We stayed on the 3rd floor with has not elevator. Not a problem if you are able, but make sure you ask for another floor if you can't do steps. Our bed was very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was very well presented and the food was tasty. The only...

The hotel didn't have a sign outside so we had to look at physical addresses. Parking was terrible (when we checked in there was a wedding setting up so the hotel and the lot was hectic). The 'butler' was simply a bell boy that you'd find at other hotels. They didn't help with the bags, the stairs were a challenge...

The hotel is a converted mansion, with fireplaces in some of the rooms, and antique or antique-style furniture. The location is convenient to Shadyside, Carnegie-Mellon and Pitt. Service was extremely friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was better than average. We found the wifi frustrating and unreliable: it kept cutting out. Everything else, though, was lovely.

Lovely old mansion turned into B&B. We were there for a wedding and spent 3 nights and saw many rooms occupied by friend and family. Some rooms are lovely with lots of and remodeled bathrooms. Others not so much. The third floor in the main building is not served by the elevator which is more like a dumb waiter. Only...

Charming, located walking distance to CMU, which was nice, but lacking certain amenities I'd expect at a hotel at this price. No full length mirror, poor room lighting, no bolster or extra pillows on bed--and only 2 uncomfortable chairs for sitting--so nowhere to read or relax. No elevator--we were on the third floor. Had a valet help us in with...

Mansions on Fifth used to belong to a wealthy Pittsburgh family, and is now a lovely hotel. It's not a place that has brand new, state of the art furnishings and appliances. If that's what you want, you should stay elsewhere. However, if you want a place with old-world charm, try Mansions on Fifth. The woodwork alone is just beautiful....

Wonderful historic building with elegant wood carvings, beautiful stained glass windows, multiple fireplaces, and a sweeping staircase. Staff was extremely helpful. My cell phone stopped working and a staff member let my girlfriend use theirs for an out of country call!
