Beautiful hotel! Everything was perfect. Slept like a baby in the beds. The Speakeasy had excellent hand crafted vintage drinks. It was nice to have multiple bars and restaurants in the same hotel. Right in the heart of downtown which made it very easy to get around.

Everything about this hotel was truly a plus - comfort, amenities, ambiance, decor, history, staff. One of the few hotels we've stayed in that we were not in a hurry to leave. The Tap Room was excellent, with good cold beer! The bourbon milkshake is also worth trying.

The Omni is a centrally located hotel in downtown Pittsburgh - within easy walk of everywhere and a metro stop opposite. The hotel is pleasant with large comfortable rooms, and all you'd want from a top-class hotel. Only complaint was the view - which was of the windows in the opposite bit of the hotel, so very boring.

Such a beautiful hotel in Pittsburgh! As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by huge, beautiful chandeliers. We enjoyed just wandering the lobby, and admiring it's beauty. Our room was great. We had views of the city and a park. The bed was so comfortable, and there were terry cloth robes. There is a Speakeasy, but it was...

I stayed at the Omni William Penn for a conference in 4/16. Lovely hotel and large lobby that's conducive to having large groups meet informally. Guest rooms are updated and very spacious and have lots of electrical outlets. Would definitely return.

Reviewed 12 April 2016

This hotel is in an attractive, historical building. The bed and pillows were quite comfortable, even a bit luxurious. The staff was friendly, but seemed a bit overtaxed. Being downtown meant that it was rather noisy. Sirens kept me awake even though the room's only window faced an interior airshaft. The interior window also meant that the room was dark,...

This hotel exceeds all expectations. It's worth every penny ... you will NOT be disappointed. From the decore and ambience to the rooms, restaurants and bars - it's all exceptional. Don't miss the Speakeasy downstairs!

Stayed here for 2 days while visiting Carnegie Mellon. Big historic (old) hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. Old is nice. If you've ever stayed at a Fairmont in Canada, Victoria or Calgary, then you know what to expect. Rooms are larger, bathrooms smaller but all nice. 715, was a quiet suite. View of Penn place from the sitting area.

I recently stayed here for 3 nights in connection with a conference. The rooms were so comfortable, and the ambiance of the hotel very class, yet cozy. I would highly recommend staying here. Great location too.

Don't stay here if you are not willing to be nickel and dimed out of your money. I am serious they charge for every little extra thing you want unless you are a premier member. Also, be aware that they charge a $100 dollar incidental fee, although I was told it was $50 when I checked in. Save some money,...
