Beautiful hotel! Only complaint I have is with the WiFi. Because I was there on business, I needed internet service. I had many difficulties connecting, even with complimentary WiFi. When I asked the front desk staff member, he wasn't able to assist. Very frustrating. Other than that, this hotel experience was great!

There is nothing lacking here! The staff goes out of its way to anticipate ways to make your stay more pleasant. The 100 year old decor is beautiful and transporting to a slower, classier age. The rooms are not carbon copies, and vary in size and layout. Always comfortable and well appointed. Search out the Speakeasy for a prohibition cocktail...

The historical hotel is exquisitely restored, maintained and comfortable. The staff, at every level, anticipates your needs. Each restaurant is great, varied menus. Each guest room is different, and the little amenities in each are perfect.

My husband and I decided to go to the city for Valentine's day since we were off work the next day. We're both in Pittsburgh often (one of us works in the city) so typically we wouldn't choose it as an overnight stay. However, the Omni was running a Valentine's special which gave a free upgrade from a deluxe to...

The hotel is an experience from the moment you pull up. Service is their focus; you immediately understand this. My check in was seamless, bags to the room without question or hesitation, while I had a glass of wine in the bar. The rooms are comfortable and if you ask for a view, they deliver. The food was excellent, even...

The William Penn is an old school place to stay from the lobby furnishings to the attentive staff. Convenient location makes it a good place to stay for business. A small problem I experienced with a wake-up call was promptly handled by the Manager on duty. Recommended without reservation.

This hotel has so much culture and history. It is by far the prettiest hotel I have ever stayed in. It has everything you could want! There's restaurants that serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Wonderful room but very warm in room and air not working. Only stayed one night so didn't mention to staff. We have stayed here many times in past. Love it but this time it was such a bummer. I do love the lobby and Starbucks right in hotel. Need to get keurigs in the rooms

Magnificent hotel! Beautifully decorated. Our room was great (although the bed was too firm for our taste). The service and food at the Terrace Room was simply nothing short of amazing! We were celebrating my 40th birthday and our stay at this hotel was excellent!
