Seriously, my daughter's dorm room is nicer than our room at the Priory. The carpet was stained and dirty, the bathroom tile has mold in the grout, the toilet didn't work, the sink took 5 minutes to drain after brushing my teeth, it is across the street from a public housing project and the staff was very rude. For $190 per night, please don't waste your money. There are great places to stay in Pittsburgh. This is NOT one of them.

Quality room, extremely friendly service, free parking, complimentary shuttle within Pittsburgh, complimentary breakfast, a cozy tavern where we encountered several very friendly guests of the hotel with nothing but praise about their experience at staying here. My wife and I were impressed with the decor outside and in. She immediately sent photos of the place to several of our friends. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again and we plan to do just that. J.J.

We are already looking forward to our next visit to Pittsburgh to stay at the Priory. Quiet and friendly. Don't forget to eat at Nicky's Thai Kitchen which was recommended by the staff--best Thai food hands down.

I chose this B and B through the BedandBreakfast.com website as I wanted an out-of-the-way place to stay for my nursing conference. It more than met my expectations. I was in walking distance from a church my father had co-pastored over fifty years previously so it was fun to find it so close by. I was also able to walk across the Rachel Carson Bridge to my conference at the David Lawrence Conference Center but I mostly chose to use the very convenient Shuttle. Herman and Henry were friendly and informative shuttle-drivers! All the staff were helpful and accommodating. I loved the historica ambience.

I have been wanting to see the Falling Waters house for around 10 years now and decided it was time to go see it. Having never been to Pittsburgh before I decided that would be a nice add on since it was only an hour away from Falling Waters. Originally I was just looking for a cheap spot for me and the wife to lay our heads down but then The Priory came up in some search results. I knew my wife would love it so I decided to spend a few more bucks and stay there. The place had a lot of history to it, it was clean, and the staff were great. Especially the bartender, she (forgot her name) told us where we should go and what was actually worth seeing. I have recommended this place to several people already and I would definitely return.

This is one of the nicest small boutique Hotels I have stayed in a very long time. We had a king suite. The room was spotless. Great european continental breakfast. The staff helped out with maps and answered all our questions. It is in the deutchtown section of the city and away from all the city crowds and noise but within walking distance of many attractions. The next trip to Pittsburgh we will be staying here. Also did I mention it was a great value...

The hotel was beautiful and in a good location for exploring the North Side. The breakfast was more of a continental breakfast (cereal, muffins, etc). We had a very pleasant stay.

Special thanks to Henry, the check-in clerk offering us a drink while waiting to get checked in and getting me some coffee for the room

My husband and I recently flew to Pittsburgh for a long weekend in order to indulge our favorite pastimes. For him, the chance to fly his Piper across the state, while I got to explore an historic home and its surroundings. We had hoped to find a unique and reasonably priced alternative to city hotels, and so it came to pass! The Priory was a real find...centrally located, staffed by enthusiastic and knowledgable people, clean, and a piece of history in itself. The breakfast buffet, included in the price, was satisfying and a great start to each day. We were so thrilled that the weather, the sites, the food and the ambience all came together that weekend, and our stay at The Priory was the unexpected pleasure that tied it all together. Hallelujah! Amy E. Shelby
