About Mansions on Fifth

Situated in the heart of Pittsburgh's elegant Shadyside neighborhood, the Mansions on Fifth Hotel is a one-of-a-kind venue for sylish wedding ceremonies, receptions, engagement parties and showers. Built in 1906, the Mansions on Fifth was originally the home of prominent attorney Willis McCook and his family. Situated on what was then referred to as Pittsburgh's "Magnificent Mile," McCook's neighbors included Andrew Mellon, Andrew Carnegie and George Westinghouse. Carefully restored in 2011-12 to its former grandeur, now as a 22 room hotel and event venue, the Mansions on Fifth offers all of the modern conveniences one would expect with a luxury hotel, but in a setting which bespeaks the opulence and grace of the "Gilded Age."

Settings and Capacity

The Mansions on Fifth Hotel consists of two houses -- the larger Fifth Avenue House and the smaller, more intimate Amberson House. Fifth Avenue House offers a splendid setting for marriage related events. The floor plan consists of the "Grand Hall," featuring a massive oak staircase, and four side rooms, each with its own distinct personality. The Parlour is light and airy, while the Dining Room, boasting a magnificent molded plaster ceiling, reminds one of an English dining club. The Oak Room, with its carved oak paneling and ceiling, offers lovely views of the neighborhood, and the Library features a vast array of books surrounding a massive fireplace.

Capacity for a seated event is approximately 120 people, while capacity for a cocktail-style event is 175. Showers can typically be accommodated in the Parlour or Dining Room, each of which can accommodate approximately 40 guests.

Food and Beverage Service

Mansions on Fifth offers a wide variety of menu choices, from savory stationed items to custom-prepared multi course plated dinners. For showers, Mansions has a variety of light fare menus which tickle the palate without weighing one down. Mansions offers a full service bar. Of course, Mansions takes pride in accomodating special dietary needs of any guests or clients.

Executive Chefs Pete Phillipy and Michael Henney have more than 30 years of culinary experience each, and have served as Executive Chefs at the Mansions' sister property, the Priory Hotel and Grand Hall at the Priory since 1999. Before that, Chefs Phillipy and Henney served in the kitchens of the Hyeholde restaurant in Pittsburgh and the Nemacolin Woodlands resort in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. Their food is second to none in Pittsburgh.

Wedding Packages

Mansions has a wide variety of wedding packages which can suit nearly any taste and budget. They range from seasonal packages, such as the Winter Lights Wedding package, April Showers package, and Fall for Love package, to the Grand package, which offers upgraded bar service and an overnight in the spacious McCook Suite.

Overnight Accommodations

Mansions boasts 22 luxurious guest rooms and suites for its clients and their guests -- 13 in the Fifth Avenue House and 9 in the Amberson House. A butler is available to assist with guests' every need. And while the Mansions offers guests a taste of the Gilded Age in its one -of-a-kind guest rooms and suites, they do not suffer from a lack of modern amenities such as a fitness center and complimentary Wi-Fi.

    We recently had our wedding reception at Mansions on Fifth and it was perfect! This beautiful boutique hotel is truly a hidden gem. The decor and architecture made for gorgeous wedding pictures. The staff was phenomenal: Marissa, Mary Ann, and Zach made sure the evening went smoothly and they were so kind and helpful throughout the entire planning process. The food was fantastic: our vegan friends even had a special streudel made for them and they said it was the best vegan food they ever had! Lisa the bartender served up some creative cocktails and even made me a mocktail because I was on Benadryl. Our guests were so impressed that many plan to return to the hotel and so do we. Thank you so much to everyone at Mansions on Fifth for giving us the most beautiful reception. ❤️

    Beautiful venue, amazing food, super accommodating. Responsiveness to emails/phone calls was not awesome, but not terrible.

    I love this location for weddings, not only is it a charming and warm venue but it allows you to have a one stop wedding day. The old Pittsburgh charm is all over this mansion with dark woods, beautiful light and so much warmth. I've photographed weddings here a number of times and the staff has always been wonderful and the events co-ordinator is there for your every need!
