Pittsburgh trip

I would recommend (and do) the Priory as an outstanding place to stay for anyone visiting Pittsburgh. Not only are the rooms beautiful, clean and comfortable, but the Monks bar is a great place to have a late night drink and relax. The breakfast in the morning is amazing, fresh eggs and pastry! We sat out in the beautiful courtyard to eat our food, we didn't want to leave the place!

priority hotel baseball trip

The priority is an interesting hotel which compared to others in the area is a lot more reasonably priced. Staff lack people skills and can be rude. The hotels history is very interesting. The rooms and common areas are lovely.

Beautiful Hotel!

This hotel is beautiful. It doesn't get much better! The only comment I would make is that if you are looking for food service, the hours and the menu are very limited!

Good location for Pirates games

My husband and I stayed at Priory for 3 nights as we were in town to see 3 Pirates games. This hotel is perfect. The location is near the North Shore, the Strip, & Station Square. The building is beautiful. Lovely old architecture. Beautiful woodwork, windows, & doors. Free parking, buffet breakfast included, free shuttle to local areas. Great little bar. Deana (?) makes wonderful drinks - especially the bramble. We were initially a little apprehensive driving down Pressley to the hotel, but were reassured it was safe. We walked from the strip to the hotel during the day and it was extremely safe. We will certainly stay here again and recommend it whoeheartedly.

Game getaway

We loved the hotel! The bar was very small but the bartender was great! We walked back to the hotel very late after the pirate game & did not feel very safe walking past the projects & all the people from there on the street near the hotel. The street is dark & is a bit scary!

Very enjoyable stay

I chose The Priory because I tire of cookie cutter hotels that are obnoxiously priced. The Priory has a tremendous amount of history and character and is priced lower than other downtown hotels. I loved the detail of the doors and trim. Our room was on the first floor and near an exit but was very quiet. It was small, but we were there to sleep, so it was more than adequate. I'm sure other rooms are larger. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was our first visit to Pittsburgh so everyone's suggestions were greatly appreciated. We would stay there again.

A good value

My daughter and I stayed at the Priory for two restful nights. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The room was clean, fresh and nicely furnished, and the bathroom and shower was just fine. Great continental breakfast and a lovely courtyard. The hotel is well situated just a little ways over the 9th Street bridge. We were able to walk from the hotel to Heinz Hall and the theatre district. The neighborhood is interesting with a real mix of recently renovated housing and some boarded up ones. Completely safe during the day, but I'd be inclined to take a taxi at night.

Not impressed

The hotel is in a transitioning neighborhood walking distance to the ballpark, which is convenient. The room was quite small and stuffed with large furniture. The bathroom had a small glass shelf above the pedestal sink, the only place in the bathroom to set anything. The hairdryer was functional, a small travel size. The wireless did not work in the room -- I had to step into the hall in order to connect to download mail and could not connect at all in the room. The room is so jammed with furniture there is barely room to move and again very little space to set anything. (The desk had the coffee maker on it, which left little space for much else.) Also, the entrance to the hotel is up a short flight of steep steps, which was challenging with luggage. On the positive side, there is a lovely outdoor patio space. Every housekeeper we passed in the hallways was cheery and pleasant and the rooms very clean. The air conditioning was nicer than many hotels, in that it didn't have that stuffy icebox feeling. Towels were fluffy and soft. For the price, it was lovely but mostly uncomfortable, and I wouldn't stay again.
