The Priory Hotel

Living history in Pittsburgh's Cultural District

History buffs looking for a well-run Pittsburgh hotel should head straight for The Priory, a former Benedictine monastery that retains architectural detail evocative of 1880's priory days, but with elegant, modern rooms and high quality service.  

Former monastery transformed into city boutique—original architecture intact

What it's like

The Priory guestroomRooms range from cozy single bed rooms to apartment-like suites. Many have views of Pittsburgh's city skyline; others overlook trees and a fountain in the courtyard. Original architectural features (high, paneled windows, mantlepieces and wainscoting) and wrought iron or dark wood bedsteads bring history to life, with essential modern additions like high quality mattresses and bedding and free wireless. 

Independent spirit

Experience a 19th century monastery with 21st century comfort 

Small touches

The Priory's complimentary shuttle takes you central city locations: business meetings, dinner out on the town, or a Pirates' game. 

Eat and drink

Complimentary expanded continental breakfast is served daily in the orignal Refectory.

The Monk's Bar serves microbrews, wine and cocktails (this is your chance to drink a "Monktini" in a former monastery!) and a light snack and sandwich menu.
