The Distrikt Hotel Pittsburgh, a Curio Collection by Hilton, drew it 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, Evangeline Residence was recognized as a non-profit corporation organized and existed 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. The hotel’s Décor throughout, is mid-century modern, with a color palette of soft grays, silvers, cobalt blue with accents of yellow and gold representing the Golden Triangle. The warm and cozy guest room environment amplifies the modern-day urban experience.

  • 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.
