Hotel Monaco the New Star on Pittsburgh’s Roster


Pittsburgh is the latest city on Kimpton’s horizon.

It might always be sunny in Philadelphia, but if you’re looking for the latest and greatest in the worlds of arts, sports, architecture and business, Pittsburgh is where all the heat is at lately. It’s one of the great comeback stories in the country: A down-on-its-luck steel town comes roaring back in a style that would make Rocky Balboa jealous, which makes sense when you consider that Sporting News has dubbed Pittsburgh the “Best Sports City” in America. The city is now a shining example of urban modern renewal with art galleries, restaurants and award-winning stadiums creating an inviting metropolitan landscape second to none. It’s also buttoned-up and ready for business, with a thriving high-tech sector and serving as the ZIP code for 10 Fortune 500 companies.

And right in the heart of the Pittsburgh renaissance is yet another reason to come visit: the new Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh. The latest addition to our portfolio in the Northeast, the Hotel Monaco is slated to debut in late 2014 in a nine-story Beaux Arts building from 1903. Mirroring much of the revitalization taking place in the city, the new 247-room hotel — with nearly 9,000 square feet of meeting and event space — will be a shining example of adaptive reuse. It’s situated in the city’s buzz-worthy Golden Triangle across from Mellon Square and near the CONSOL Energy Center and USX Tower.

Though the architecture and design will celebrate the building’s historic legacy, the hotel will also feature a chef-driven restaurant, design-forward boutique style and uncompromising Kimpton service that are all hallmarks of our brand.

The prime downtown location makes the Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh the perfect base for exploring the amazing array of experiences the city has to offer. For sporting types, the city offers a full roster of championship teams and fan-friendly venues including Heinz Field, home of the six-time NFL champion Pittsburgh Steelers; PNC Park, the Pirates’ home ballpark, rated the country’s best by Travel + Leisure; and CONSOL Energy Center, home ice of three-time Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins. But sporty “Sixburgh” is also home to stellar museums, the architectural treasures of Frank Lloyd Wright and the galleries, performances and installations of the loved-by-locals Cultural District.

With such an amazing line-up of attractions, it’s easy to see why Pittsburgh and Kimpton are going to make a winning combination for years to come.

    I have been a HUGE fan of Kimptons for the past decade!!! Traveled to DC and Chicago and NYC just to stay in the hotels.

I have been treated like gold every stay no matter which property or city…I am FROM PITTSBURGH and cannot let me say that again, CANNOT wait for you to finally arrive to my HOME!!!! I will be there!!!

    Wish it were in East Liberty, Lawrenceville, or Shadyside. Downtown is, alas, depressing. Maybe a Palomar there in a couple years? 🙂

    We love, love, love the Kimpton’s. Staying at each and every one of them is on our bucket list. Our son lives in DC – we have stayed at most of them. The hotels are fun, inviting, uplifting. You can sense that the staffers love their jobs.
    We are from Latrobe, near Pittsburgh. WE CANNOT WAIT for the new Hotel Monaco in the BURGH!!!!!!!
    We hope to be part of the inaugural celebration.

    Heard a lot about Klimpton’s, but haven’t had the pleasure of staying in one. Now it’s coming to my hometown, would love to check it out! 🙂

    We enjoyed our recent stay in Chicago at The Palomar & loved the San Francisco Argonaunt. Look forward to this Grand Opening in Pittsburgh. Kimpton Top Notch as Always*

    I’m thrilled to read about Kimpton’s upcoming property in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is a warm, interesting, and friendly city and I’ve been hoping for years to have a Kimpton available when I’m in town. Congratulations and keep growing! I always choose Kimpton if you have a hotel where I’m traveling.
