Celebrating its 100th birthday in 2016, the  William Penn opened on March 11, 1916, in what newspapers hailed as the Grandest Hotel in the nation, its first night it hosted the annual Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce Gala and was recorded as the largest gala in city history up to that time with U.S. Secretary of State Philander Knox hosting the event.

William Penn HotelDesigned by renowned architects Benno Janssen, and Franklin Abbott, the hotel was the last building venture of Henry Clay Frick, one of Pittsburgh’s wealthiest industrialists, and completed at a cost of $6 million. Frick envisioned the William Penn as Pittsburgh’s showplace, designed to rival the great hotels of Europe in Old World style and enhanced with the sophisticated technology offered by the 20th century.

It was home to the legendary Chatterbox Supper Club, the hotel staff innovated Lawrence Welk’s  famous bubble machine, and (legend says) it was the site of Bob Hope’s marriage proposal in 1934.
