Writer Bette McDevitt tells the story of the Priory Hotel's first transformation, from monastery to boutique hotel, in 1986 and its second transformation, in 2011, when it expanded from 25 to 42 guestrooms.  Writer McDevitt also discusses how the Priory has acted as a linchpin in the redevelopment of its Deutschtown neighborhood in the past 25 years.  She notes:  "Over the years, awards from the hotel industry and praise from guests have made the Priory Hotel one of the most desirable places to stay in the city of Pittsburgh."  McDevitt quotes Western Pennsylvania Small Business Administration District Director Carl Knoblock, who called the Graf family, owners of the Priory, "'bold visionaries who opened a city inn and perhaps helped turn around Pittsburgh's Deutschtown neighborhood.  You can see the rehabilitation and civic pride all through this historic neighborhood.'"  Electronic versions of this article are available upon request.
