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."
