Good location near universities. A bit of a drive to get back to the freeway. Cold breakfast selection was not good. Mostly donuts. Main building is very nice.

Quiet and very relaxing atmosphere

Had a great stay and would definitely go back. Atmosphere was warm and inviting. Only wish the food was a bit better variety.

The Worst Experience - NOT a Published 4!

Pros: 3 min walk to CMU. But this hotel was SO bad that next time, we have decided to stay elsewhere and catch a $10 cab!
We travel extensively and have used Travelocity many times and have found the ratings to be fair and accurate. But this hotel, rated a 4 stars when we booked was a nightmare! Checking in at 10pm found only one staff member in the whole place. Stairs to our 3rd floor room were small (impossible with luggage) and as another reviewer said, dangerous and steep. There is no elevator. The room was desperate for not just updating but thorough deep cleaning. Stains on the walls and ceilings, old dirty carpet, dingy and frayed towels, and the brown washcloths smelled foul. The roll out bed/love seat was so thinly padded that one could feel every spring. The next morning at breakfast, the toast arrived tasting stale and the wait staff was thin. The orange juice had been well watered down to stretch it out among guests most probably. When asked how far it was to CMU, the valet said about a mile or two. Google said it was a 3 min walk! Which it was. The worst was the bill: we were dashing to catch our plane and just did a quick glance, signed and left. On the plane we saw a $25 linen charge!! We had not asked for any additional linens nor had there been an extra roll away bed. We had only used the love seat rollaway which came with the "Deluxe" room. We have NEVER seen a Linen charge before. Calls to the manager have gone unreturned. Stay away from this place! We will!

Close to CMU

The main house is very nice but the Mccook-Reed house is a little run down outside. The appearance is a little disapointing but inside it was nice. It wasnt a Manson but enjoyed the woodwork throughout the house.

Grand Hotel, Great Location and Friendly Staff

Pros: Grand Mansion, excellent staff, sense of the quilled age with modern amenities in the rooms.
Cons: The parking area needs to be improved.
Location: Close to Shadyside, the university campuses and other historic Pittsburgh sites such as The Frick History Center and Mansion, The Phipps Conservatory.
The Mansions on Fifth is a grand hotel located in the heart of Shadyside and the University area. If you enjoy the ambience of a grand century old mansion with quaint rooms and awesome grand public areas the Mansion on Fifth is your place to stay when in Pittsburgh. My stay was for two evenings and my experience was very satisfying. I would recommend this grand hotel to anyone who enjoys historic places, a feeling of the guilded age and a different experience when traveling for pleasure or business.
