Joinery Hotel Pittsburgh, Curio Collection by Hilton has debuted in Downtown Pittsburgh’s Golden Triangle neighbourhood. 

Formerly the Distrikt Hotel Pittsburgh, the newly reimagined 185-room hotel and community gathering space pays homage to its foundation of a historic structure through a contemporary lens. Joinery Hotel Pittsburgh seeks to inspire discovery in visitors and locals alike by honouring the city’s working-class history and distinct culture through analogue offerings and design details with a modern industrial aesthetic. 

The guest journey begins with the lobby, a familiar, welcoming neighbourhood hub for all to enjoy, adorned with a blend of layered textures, earthy-hued leather fabrics and steel accents. The focal point, an ‘offering table’ check-in experience, is complete with local specialities, such as Voodoo Brewery beer, wine from Pittsburgh Winery, spirits, snacks, and coffee by local roaster Nicholas Coffee. The lobby also offers a curated library by Amazing Books & Records, board games, records by Get Hip Records, and rental bikes courtesy of a local bike shop, Thick Bikes. In addition to these amenities, The Shop showcases merchandise that embodies the creativity and craft of Joinery available for purchase. The area will provide countless opportunities for exploration – from kicking back with a record at a listening station, sipping on a craft cocktail or beer in the library, to appreciating a contemporary art collection curated by NINE dot ARTS showcasing emerging local talent or learning a new skill.

“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, general manager and a local resident. “We’re thrilled to debut as the ideal Downtown launch pad for leisure and business travellers 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.”

The Art of Hospitality in Pittsburgh

Highlighting the importance of community and the depths of what makes the quirky city of Pittsburgh tick, Joinery Hotel has partnered with local small businesses to offer regular programming and an active cultural calendar. For example, the Cheers-to-Beer Sip Tour and Stay is a collaboration with the Pittsburgh Brewers Guild, offering guests a custom tour at ten local breweries, including Southern Tier Brewery Pittsburgh, Allegheny City Brewing, and Cinderlands Warehouse. The experience showcases Pittsburgh’s dynamic beer scene, featuring a complimentary Pittsburgh Brewers Guild Passport Guide, Joinery tote and surprise-and-delight treat.

Joinery Hotel Pittsburgh has reinforced its relationship with the city’s creative community with the Steel City Artist-In-Residency Series, exhibiting works by local artists. Starting with the hotel’s opening, the series will feature works by multidisciplinary sculptor Blaine Siegel, using Polaroid photography to create an abstract piece that acts as a window into the heart of Joinery Hotel. The final piece will be on public display between September and November 2022. Afterwards, the hotel is scheduled to showcase abstract artist Deanna Mance for a live, on-site painting series. The series will continue alongside additional programming that honours the community and culture of Pittsburgh for guests and locals. 

Focused on emphasising the importance of community, driving entrepreneurial spirit, and motivating reinvention, Joinery Hotel Pittsburgh celebrates the deep roots of Pittsburgh through a modern lens of perspective.
