Steeped in history with a touch of elegance throughout the entire property, the Omni William Penn Hotel has been a staple of downtown Pittsburgh for several generations.

One of the last ventures by industrialist and Pittsburgh steel pioneer Henry Clay Frick, the AAA 4-Diamond hotel's historic beauty is evident from the first step into the lobby. Twinkling crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling, giving life to the earth tones that make the grand lobby inviting despite its regal décor. 

Rooms feature wood furnishings and warm colors that exude a cozy yet luxurious feel. Families are made to feel welcome as kids are presented upon check-in with a backpack of healthy snack recipes, crayons and an activity book.

A signature dining experience can be found in the mahogany-adorned Terrace Room where historic pictures and molded plaster ceiling lend the restaurant its touch of class. For cocktails, the Speakeasy vaults guests back to the roaring '20s in a room below the lobby that offers classic drinks as well as Pennsylvania-themed cocktails. An on-site fitness center offers machines and weights 24 hours a day.

The hotel is located across the street from a T light rail station which offers free rides within downtown and the North Shore. Ride under the river for quick access to PNC Park, Heinz Field, Carnegie Science Center and Rivers Casino.

From the press:
  • “Pittsburgh's grand hotel has a sumptuous lobby, where people relax with drinks under a coffered ceiling and crystal chandeliers” -- Fodor’s

Downtown location with free valet parking. Beautiful lobby decorated for Christmas. Pampered feeling (bathrobes).
Other Comments
Room near elevators was noisier than we would have liked. Some guests were loud in the elevator area after 11pm and we could hear the elevators themselves rumbling up and down.

The staff, the ease of the front door being on a side street so you don’t have to rush, the over all ambiance.
Other Comments
The bathrooms were small. Booked what I thought was a premier king suite based off of Travelzoo’s description but got a delux King room. The hotel was very nice and clean with the staff very accommodating. They were speedy and did an amazing job
