Even though we were just spending a night in Pittsburgh on our way to pick up our new puppy, Tristan and I really wanted to stay somewhere that was fun and unique. I found Mansions on 5th online, and we both fell in love!
The Mansions are a historic landmark set right in the midst of downtown Pittsburgh. When you book your room you can choose the the main Fifth Avenue house, which is huge and a dinning room, a library, workout facility, and much more!
Or you can stay in the Amberson house, which is a bit smaller and cozier. It only has a few rooms and a smaller lounge/reception area, but those who stay in the Amberson house still have full access to all the amenities of the main house.
We chose to stay in the Amberson house because we liked the small, warm and cozy look it had.
We ended up being able to reserve our room at a discounted rate of $109 per night through Expedia.com, but currently their room rates are between $150-$190 a night. I’m not completely sure, but it seems like their prices fluctuate quite a bit!
The room we stayed at was simple, but very cozy and sweet. It had a queen bed, a loveseat, a desk, and the room’s original fireplace. We also loved the color of the white marble and dark wood combination that was in the bathroom!
In the morning there was a complimentary contintential breakfast in the main house, as well as other breakfast foods that could be ordered. The dinning room was stunning, and hands down my favorite part of the mansion.
Overall, we loved staying at the Mansions on Fifth. The only thing we didn’t like was that the mansions are located right on a main road in Pittsburgh, so it’s a bit of a busier area . If you’re looking for a secluded getaway this might not be the place for you. But, if you’re wanting a unique, fun, and historic place to stay right in the midst of Pittsburgh, we would definitely recommend Mansions on Fifth!
