Morning Glory Inn

2119 Sarah Street , Pittsburgh, PA 15203 USA (Show map)


Tucked away in the "South Side", perhaps Pittsburgh's most eclectic, diverse and dynamic neighborhood, is a delightful 1862 Italianate style Victorian brick town house that, since 1996, has been Morning Glory Inn. You will succumb to a wonderful blending on "old and new" that is cozy and comfortable...and one block off "America's Longest Business Victorian National Historic District" it's walking to restaurants, jazz clubs,art/antique gallerys and "nich" shops.

Great Wedding Weekend

4.8 on October 31, 2015

We had our wedding reception at the Inn and so we and our friends stayed at the end all weekend. It was so great to wake up and feel A bit like we were in our own home and have a delicious breakfast with our friends. The reception itself was stunning and the courtyard looked so beautiful. And then my husband and I could just go to our room at the end of the evening, without having to travel. Morning Glory is delightful and the staff is wonderful. ~Shannon

Mourning Glory Inn - Glorious !

4.0 on September 18, 2015

From booking through checkout working with MGI was a pleasure. Located in the heart of a vibrant, hip and easily accessible neighborhood, MGI offers a quite , classic alternative to standard hotel/ motel accommodations. The owner and staff were pleasant, personal, efficient and informitive. The interiors were pleasing with every view an artist canvass of color, light, texture and tranquility. Just what was needed after a busy urban day. The breakfast , a home cooked , elegantly presented meal was the perfect beginning for a new day. The coffee was outstanding! All in all a perfect stay. Thank you Mourning Glory Inn . We will see you again . Jeffrey and Laura

Dream Wedding Weekend

5 on August 07, 2015

We celebrated our wedding at the Morning Glory Inn, hosting the rehearsal dinner, the wedding ceremony and reception, and a Sunday brunch throughout the weekend. We could not be more thrilled with the entire experience. Our families stayed at the Inn with us - Each of the rooms is unique and perfect in it's own way, very comfortable for everyone. The entire Inn was very clean and the staff very accommodating - They are all more than willing to do anything they can to make your stay enjoyable. I would recommend the Inn to anyone looking for an out of the box wedding day and to anyone just looking to relax in a beautiful location that feels more like you're in the South than in the South Side of Pittsburgh!

Week-end sightseeing

We very much enjoyed our two nights at Morning Glory Inn. Joy could not have been more accommodating, great breakfasts and highest standard of cleanliness. Location is perfect - neighborhood feel yet easy to reach all the highlights of the city. Will definitely return.

just ok

The breakfasts we're phenomenal, our bed was very comfortable, and though the b and b was clean, we felt the place needs a complete overhaul.

Very pleasant visit

Wonderful accommodations and friendly staff. In a interesting and eclectic neighborhood.

beautiful location with charm

4.8 on June 15, 2014

Such a beautiful location, in the summer the greenery on the patio is amazing. Twinkling lights and such a private location , you wouldn't even know you are in the middle of a city. The owners are very thoughtful and the food was amazing. A wonderful alternative to an impersonal hotel room.

charming place

My husband couldn't stop saying he wanted to live in a place like this all weekend. Very charming rooms and back patio with garden feel.

Anniversary visit

4.8 on September 03, 2013

We wanted to come to Pitt to celebrate our anniversary! We were able to get reservations, and much to our surprise and delight, The Morning Glory not only gave us a bottle of champagne, but also they upgraded our room without charging us more $$$$. The breakfasts were wonderful!
