In a tour of 10 (unexpectedly) romantic United States Cities, Yahoo! Travel mentions just one hotel in Pittsburgh -- the Priory Hotel! "For optimum romance, check into the Priory Hotel, a former Benedictine monastery on the City's North Side, with just 42 cozy rooms, a fireplace in the lobby, and an on call shuttle to downtown."
2.5 miles from the Priory Hotel
Mt. Washington, located directly to the south of Downtown, boasts a view to beat all views. In fact, USA Weekend magazine named it one of the top 10 most beautiful views in the country. And getting there is half the fun. Every year nearly one million residents and visitors ride the historic Duquesneor Monongahela Inclines up from bustling Station Square to Mt. Washington. This scenic overlook, which provides a breathtaking view of Downtown and the Golden Triangle, is also home to many of Pittsburgh's most elegant restaurants, unique shops and memorable places. A visit to the neighborhood business district is like returning to the charm of a small town – penny candy and all.More on Mt. Washington ...
