Luxurious lobby area with plenty of seating to sit with wifi, as many people were doing. I was in Pittsburgh for a meeting close to the Hotel, within a six minute walk. It was freezing at the time, (January) but the walk to the meeting center (Rugus) was refreshing. Valet parking is available, also there is a parking garage which...

This hotel was selected by my company for a meeting, but I would definitely choose to stay there again. It was great to check in on-line, walk in and pick up the key without waiting in line. The hotel is beautiful. Our meeting wasn't over until nearly 11:00 pm and we were pleased that the restaurant was still serving food....

Hello, Amanda. Thanks for your feedback! Why not plan a get-away weekend? You were here for business, come on back and relax and enjoy Afternoon Tea in the beautiful lobby or a prohibition-era cocktail in the Speakeasy! Hope we'll see you soon!

A lovely, old hotel that positively oozes history and character. First class service, excellent food, and class you just can't find in anything built in the lats 50 years. The rooms are spacious with unpredictable floor plans, with plenty of room to spread out. Every hallway, elevator, stairwell, restaurant, guest room just reeks of 1920s art deco. I always feel...

I've stayed at this hotel a few times now. Probably one of the cleanest most comfortable hotels I've stayed in. The front desk staff is very friendly. The Tap Room is an awesome place to have a drink. A little small though. If you are looking for a central hotel with great service, this is it!

The hotel is beautiful, the service is outstanding, the food was fantastic. This location is central to everything. This is the hotel to go to when visiting Pittsburgh!

We spent a couple of nights here at Thanksgiving. As in the past, the accommodations were very nice. This time, upon check-in, the young man said he would make sure we had a great view. I said, I'll trade the view, for a better room, if possible. The trade definitely worked for us! Instead of a view, we had a...

This hotel has plenty of character and offers a variety of dining options. Be sure to check your thermostat to ensure that the heat is functioning properly. Otherwise, the staff is wonderful and the location is perfect to easily walk to any place in downtown Pittsburgh.

We spent New Years at the Hotel and had a wonderful experience. Beautiful vintage hotel that oozes charm and grace. A great experience and the location is perfect to access downtown. New Years Eve dinner in the Terrace Room was both delicious and charming.
