Enjoyed a few prohibition era cocktails with my wife. Nice atmosphere, quiet place with comfortable decor. You have to go downstairs from the main lobby to get to it but it's worth the walk. As locals we enjoy a visit here from time to time.

This hotel is fine, some rooms are much bigger than others and they are all about the same price. Room service prices are high and food is average. I had a room that smelled like smoke in my last visit, they offered to come spray it which didn't really help, about an hour later after I was in bed called...

The building and architecture enrich the experience. A friendly professional staff and beautiful surroundings. The food choices on site are good and the upscale restaurant is excellent. Centrally located in the downtown area with access to shopping and near the rivers for site seeing.

Great old hotel with grandeur of yesterday. The lobby & the restaurant is a popular meeting spot for conducting business. Rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. Meeting rooms available on the second floor. Starbucks in the lobby and walkable to everything in the golden triangle.

My husband and I love staying here when we visit Pittsburgh. The last time we stayed we brought our two children (ages 7 &10) as we had tickets for a Penguins game. It was decorated for Christmas and was absolutely stunning. My kids said it was so fancy and it reminded them of the opulence of pictures they have seen...

They take pride and great care in the building! The historic nature is intact and the rooms are beautiful! Beds are some of the best throughout the hotels in the city. The food is wonderful for dinner and the little bar located in the building is great. It is a great location within the city and you can walk or...

I booked this Hotel on Priceline, and accidentally made it on the wrong date. I was frantic and worried about losing my money. I read online that Priceline can do nothing and it is non-refundable and unable to be changed. At that point I went ahead and called the hotel myself. It was late around 12:30 AM. I called and...
