Until recently, the hotels in Pittsburgh weren’t much to write home about. Sure, there were a few grande dame hotels, most notably the Omni William Penn hotel built 100 years ago by Henry Clay Frick. It’s had several restorations to its rooms, bars, frescoes, and ballrooms, and is quite an impressive place to drop your anchor for a stay. Recent new kids on the block, like the Ace Hotel in East Liberty or the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh have brought the city something it was lacking: a modest offering of hip boutique hotels with great food, fun parties, stylish rooms, and bars that serve up liquid cool like Stumptown coffee and local craft beers.
Things have changed for the business traveler, too. The Fairmont in downtown Pittsburgh has heightened its fitness center and spa services, and its restaurants and bars are great places to drop by for a bite to eat and live Jazz music. Pittsburgh’s tastes—not to mention its demographics—are changing, and the quality of accommodations in the Steel City has certainly evolved as a result.
