Pittsburgh's Premier Boutique Hotel
A former Benedictine monastery, the Priory is a 42 room family owned and operated boutique hotel nestled in the historic Deutschtown section of Pittsburgh’s North Side -- an easy walk to downtown Pittsburgh, PNC Park, the Andy Warhol Museum, and Heinz Field. Built in 1888, the Priory’s then-25 guestrooms were lovingly restored to 19th century elegance by the Graf family in 1986, weaving Edwardian era antiques and reproductions to accent the building’s remarkable architectural and interior design features.
In 2011, the Graf family unveiled the Priory Hotel’s new wing, a $2.7 million project which added 17 guestrooms to the existing property and which seamlessly blended the new construction with the original building. The construction project also added a new, larger front desk and a cozy pub -- the Monks’ Bar – in the original building. Last, the project debuted a brand new Fitness Center and Business Center, as well as state of the art meeting space in the new wing.
And in 2021 and 2022, we underwent extensive renovations, with new furnishings, carpet, and wall coverings throughout our common areas, and complete redecoration and redesign of our original wing rooms.
The Priory Hotel also boasts one of the region’s most elegant ballrooms, the Grand Hall at the Priory Hotel, which is set in the adjoining former church, hosting numerous business events, weddings and charity functions.
And while the Priory’s physical characteristics create a memorable experience, it is our service and attention to detail which set us apart. Our guests are treated as individuals, not just another number among the faceless masses circulating through the lobby. If we can help, we will.
Is the Priory a unique experience? Just ask the experts:
"The high tech additions notwithstanding, the look and feel of the Priory is distinctly historic. Rooms are filled with 19th and early 19th century antiques and period reproductions. Fourteen foot high ceilings and natural woodwork are elegant features missing from more contemporary architecture.” - Susan Glaser, Cleveland Plain Dealer

"The Priory achieves the deft trick of gathering visitors within its embrace without the smothering gentility of some [unique lodging]. While the atmosphere is cozy and welcoming, you don’t feel as though you have to worry about wiping your feet.” - William Loeffler, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
