I loved the charm of the Omni William Penn - felt like a trip back in time, yet all the modern-day amenities were there. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom/shower were great and the food was delicious. I will stay here the next time I go to Pittsburgh.

Room was very small with 2 double beds, clean and well kept though. Bathroom was so small, if I was an obese person I would not be able to...

What a lovely hotel! Staff were courteous and helpful, and our room was clean and comfortable with great views. Good location for site-seeing. You can walk to many other areas from the hotel, including several of the bridges along the waterfront. We had a casual meal at the Taproom, and the food was fresh and flavorful. Would definitely stay here...

I've stayed at all of the major hotels in Pittsburgh. The William Penn is undoubtedly the best. From the service, to the rooms, to the amenities offered, you will be very well taken care of during the entire length of your stay. I highly recommend this property.

We enjoyed our long weekend at the Omni William Penn. The hotel is full of history. I loved picturing what it was like in it's day... although you don't have to use too much of your imagination. They've done a great job of preserving the historical charm of the hotel, while at the same time keeping it current with modern...

Great hotel! It is beautiful and clean. It is a great pick for a business trip as it has everything you need -- restaurants and in house Starbuck's. The location is great with easy access to the convention center and other known areas on the T line. The T line is right across the street, which is a plus.
