The Distrikt Hotel Pittsburgh, a Curio Collection by Hilton, drew its inspiration from the building’s previous lives. The Gothic Revival style structure was built in 1924 as the Salvation Army of Western PA, named after the first female General, Evangeline Booth. In 1951, the Evangeline Residence was recognized as a non-profit corporation serving the city as an institution of benevolence and charity, consisting of 229 sleeping rooms, a dining room (which is operated exclusively for the residents of the building and the officers of the Salvation Army), a lounge and other rooms.

Today, the hotel’s décor is mid-century modern with a color palette of soft grays, silvers and cobalt blue. Accents of yellow and gold serve as an homage to the hotel’s downtown Pittsburgh location, frequently refereed to as the “Golden Tringle” representing the confluence of the Allegheny River and the Monongahela River whose joining forms the Ohio River. A proud landmark throughout Steel City, The Distrikt Hotel invites you to explore our city’s rich history, cultural museums, award-winning food scene and much more that only Pittsburgh can deliver. We will be here to take care of you after your adventure!

  • Fantastic downtown hotel! What a lovely hotel. They have bikes and umbrellas if you need right in the lobby. The staff was excellent and the room was a nicely decorated modern abode. Quick walk to the point and to restaurants.

  • Nice boutique hotel with great restaurant attached
    Nice small hotel close to Golden Triangle area of Pittsburgh. The rooms were comfortable with nice bathrooms. Hotel personnel were very friendly and helpful. Valets can retrieve car in minutes. Adjacent restaurant, Or the Whale, is excellent for both breakfast and dinner.

  • Great Hotel!
    The hotel is new and clean. The staff is extremely welcoming and friendly. Make sure you eat at Or, The Whale during your stay – huge portions of great food at a great price! Overall, a fantastic hotel experience.
    Will stay there again!

  • The staff were all super friendly and helpful. The location is convenient. The rooftop balcony is a bonus. The restaurant on site has fantastic food and waitstaff. The rooms are very clean. Cool vibe to the whole place.

  • Beautiful hotel.
    Wonderful customer service from beginning to end. Room was a little small for the price, but I guess that’s what you have to pay for downtown. The hotel is just beautiful. Loved the roof top deck!. I would recommend this place to others as long as they don’t want to bring children. It doesn’t seem like a child friendly place. There is nothing wrong with that though.


    Built in 1924 as the Headquarters of the Salvation Army of Western PA, one of the most significant services provided was the provision of long term accommodation for professional women, known as the Evangeline Residence for young women. Named after the first female general, Evangeline Booth, serving from 1934-1939, Evangeline is now the chapel’s mezzanine and houses our oyster and cocktail bar.
