Oh Yeah...

A travel blog entry by thepricefamily

Well, I guess day two with our truck did not go much better than day one... first, I think I forgot to mention yesterday that when the locksmith was taking all of our information we noticed that our tags had been stolen off the truck!!!! So day one did not go too great, but compared to day two, it looked pretty nice. We had almost 70 miles from our …

As part of my time here at Carnegie Mellon, I have been given the amazing opportunity to travel to Doha, Qatar over Spring Break to tour our Middle Eastern campus. The program is called IMPAQT (Initiating Meaningful Pittsburgh and Qatar Ties) and our goal is not only to foster relationships between the two campuses, but also promote a more hefty exchange program for semester or year-long study.

The Last Meeting, or Was It The First?

A travel blog entry by cubm


Last Sunday, the team met for the last time to go over the itinerary and logistics for the upcoming trip that begins Thursday, February 27, 2014. This process began last April when we had our first meeting of interested parties. Probably 25 or 30 people came through expressing interest to go, but 12 hearty souls endured till the end and are about to embark upon the trip of a lifetime. So in some ...

Exit DC and Preparation to see some Pirates

A travel blog entry by chrisleslie


... 25 minutes to get there after we called for directions again. Pizza was fair.

Major score for the day was our tickets bought on stubhub for $9 total. They are the first row on the 300 level but supposedly the Pirates second deck is the shortest distance to home plate compared to the other new-ish stadiums in the MLB....I guess we'll see tomorrow.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Omni William Penn Hotel Pittsburgh

    4 night Stay in April 2004


    We had a wonderful time during our 4-day stay and have nothing to complain about. The hotel is very clean, safe, comfortable and ideally located in downtown. The property is a short 25-minute walk to "The Strip" or "Station Square". And Pittsburgh itself is a beautiful city with lots to do.

    Did'nt stay here but the lobby is grand!


    Stayed at the Hilton, but checked out this hotel lobby. From the outset, the mood is grandeur. The building is impressive, lobby is dark, with luxurious furnishings and chandeliers and evokes days gone by. The mood was relaxed (a branch of Starbucks adjoins the lobby). If I was visiting again, I'd HAVE to give this place a shot. Stay if you can.

    You should stay here


    My husband and I celebrated his birthday and Valentine's Day (belatedly) on Saturday, February 21 with dinner in Downtown Pittsburgh and a stay at the William Penn Hotel. We had a wonderful time! We live in Pittsburgh, less than 5 miles and 15 minutes away, and even attended my senior prom at the hotel, but never had a reason to stay there.

    Unexpected Lavish Value


    I am glad I read another review and joined the Omni Select Guest Program. The program is free and neted me a $350.00/ night junior suitefor $79.00/night. Upon joining you have the ability to choose your pillow type, where you want your room to be ie: high/low/ quiet etc.

    Rave Review


    We stayed at the Omni William Penn last week.

    From the moment we walked in to the lobby, we knew that we were going to enjoy our stay. A giant Christmas tree graced the lobby, music played in the background, and the smell of Starbucks coffee wafted through the air.

    The hallways were all decorated with beautiful chandeliers. Our room was large, clean, and tastefully decorated.

    The bathroom was great...the size of a small bedroom.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful.

    The best in the Steel City


    This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel, both times for about a week's stay on business. From the moment you walk into this old hotel, you are reminded of the reason people used to look forward to staying in a hotel.

    Great for truly responsible dog owners!


    We had a terrific time at the Omni William Penn Hotel! The staff was great, and the hotel is lovely.

    We always travel with our dog, and that trip was no exception. They do have restrictive pet policies (boooo), but they agreed to waive them all for us and our perfectly behaved, scrupulously clean, and all-around wonderful dog (yeaaahhh!).

    Because they waived the pet restrictions, we were able to really enjoy our stay. We had a terrific meal in the hotel's restaurant (which we couldn't have done if we weren't allowed to leave our dog alone in the room). The staff was helpful and welcoming, too!

    A great experience. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

    The Best Hotel in Pittsburgh


    My wife and I stayed at this hotel and it was wonderful. Every employee we met was very friendly and seemed happy that we were staying at the Omni..the room was fantastic. Food was great. This hotel is hands down better than the Westin down the street. Make this your next hotel in Pittsburgh.

    Beautiful Hotel, Spacious Rooms


    We recently stayed here for three nights in June and were very pleased with the hotel which is an historic landmark conveniently located in the downtown core. The room was very spacious with two double beds, a desk, lounge chair, and large double closet. Everything was very clean and tastefully appointed (standard dark wood hotel furniture, floral fabrics). The bathroom was fair-sized and toiletries were very nice (including hair conditioner which is becoming a rarity in hotels!). The public garage for self-parking was conveniently located across the street and was relatively inexpensive -- $12 for weekends and $3 for weekdays. Staff were quite friendly and helpful.

    Romantic Place


    Very elegant and romantic. Centrally located. Enjoying "high tea" in the afternoon there is a must.
