In this article on the hep and happening in Pittsburgh, the author interviewed four prominent Pittsburghers regarding their favorite places in the city. The Priory Hotel was singled out by Andy Warhol Museum Executive Director Eric Shiner as his favorite place for a "sound sleep." Said Mr. Shiner: "It's a unique property, a renovated monastery, with events held in a former church."
The Nutcracker is a timeless classic which has been just about perfected by the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater. Set in Victoria era Pittsburgh, with nods to the city's past (look for a Heinz Foods wagon). the PBT's version of the Nutcracker features stunning set pieces and fantastic costumes. Our Nutrcracker package includes an overnight at the Priory for two in Deluxe King room, two tickets to the Nutcracker ballet at the Benedum Center, champagne in your room at check in, and and a $75 voucher for dinner at the Carlton Restaurant or Six Penn Kitchen.
