Since opening its doors in 1916, the Omni William Penn Hotel has played a starring role in the city of Pittsburgh, hosting movie stars, politicians, heads of state and leaders of business. Centrally located in downtown, you will experience outstanding service, comfortable and spacious accommodations, elegant event venues and award-winning cuisine.
The William Penn also offers a 24-hour fitness facility, and the restored prohibition-era Speakeasy social lounge offers a trip back in time.
Designed by renowned architects Benno Janssen, and Franklin Abbott, the hotel was the last building venture of Henry Clay Frick, one of Pittsburgh’s wealthiest industrialists. Frick envisioned the William Penn as Pittsburgh’s showplace, designed to rival the great hotels of Europe in Old World. Omni William Penn Hotel is a member of Historic Hotels Worldwide.
