An homage to Pittsburgh

Paying homage to its foundation of a historic structure through a contemporary lens, the reimagined, 185-room Joinery Hotel Pittsburgh, Curio Collection by Hilton in the city’s Golden Triangle neighborhood, honors the city’s working-class history and distinct culture through analog offerings and design details with a modern industrial aesthetic.

Reinventing the space that formerly housed the Distrikt Hotel Pittsburgh, the hospitality experience begins with the lobby. The new space creates a familiar, welcoming neighborhood hub for all to enjoy with a mix of layered textures, earth-toned leather fabrics and clean steel accents. The focal point, an ‘offering table’ check-in experience, is complete with local Voodoo Brewery beer, wine from Pittsburgh Winery, spirits, snacks and coffee by local roaster Nicholas Coffee.

The lobby features a curated library by Amazing Books & Records, board games, records collected by Get Hip Records and rental bikes courtesy of local bike shop, Thick Bikes.

In addition to these amenities, The Shop will feature a unique collection of items for purchase that reflect the creativity and craft of Joinery. From kicking back with a record at a listening station, to imbibing on a craft cocktail or beer in the library, to taking in a bold contemporary art collection curated by NINE dot ARTS showcasing emerging, showcasing local talent, to gathering together to learn a new skill, the space will offer countless opportunities for exploration, according to the owners.

“Like the joining of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers with the Ohio River that gives the Golden Triangle its name, Joinery Hotel represents a natural coming together of community to create a new ‘place to be’ for locals in Steel City,” said Donato Coluccio, GM. “We’re thrilled to debut as the ideal Downtown launch pad for leisure and business travelers to explore the best of Pittsburgh from a local’s point-of-view, as well as offer unique moments of discovery within our hotel that provide guests with an authentic sense of place.”

Guestrooms at Joinery Hotel Pittsburgh are all simply, thoughtfully and stylishly appointed with comfortable bedding, and contemporary furniture, with workspace in select rooms.

The property has 800 sq. ft. of interior meeting and event space on the mezzanine with a dedicated events team and catering. The outdoor terrace on the 10th floor, with dramatic views of the city, also provides a setting for social gatherings and community-driven programs of all types.

Joinery Hotel Pittsburgh has also cemented ties to the city’s creative community with the Steel City Artist-In-Residency Series exhibiting works by local artists and creators. Starting with the hotel’s opening, the series will debut with works by multidisciplinary sculptor Blaine Siegel, using Polaroid photography to create an abstract work that will act as a window into the heart of Joinery Hotel. The final piece will be on public display this September-November. Following that this fall, the hotel will feature abstract artist Deanna Mance for a live, on-site painting series. Mance (who was also commissioned for a permanent mural in the lobby titled Threshold) will interact with guests while creating a work for display on-site this winter. Looking ahead, the series will continue alongside additional programming that celebrates the community and culture of Pittsburgh for guests and locals.
