Hi everyone,

Coming down for the Steeler Browns game Nov 11th and looking for some help on a few questions.

Looking to stay at the Omni William Penn, how far is it to Heinz feild, is it walkable.

I was looking to take the GAteway Clipper over, how far is this from the hotel, and can you take tailgate stuff with you? Their website says No beverages are allowed or Cooler bags and such!
Is this true ?

If yes then I will walk.

Also recomendations on a nice place for dinner for me & the wife on Saturday night close to the hotel would be much appreciated as well !

Thanks in advavence for your help !

As far as the clipper goes with taking coolers they won't let ya a friend of mine tried the said no so instead of leaving it there he started drinking and handing out beers to people and held the boat up so they left him take it on but couldn't drink.

you can walk (to the stadium) from the william penn. not exactly close but walkable. it's even further to the gateway clipper from william penn. i wouldn't recommend walking that. best bet, get a cab from the hotel to drop you off over near the stadium, it's pretty cheap. they don't care what you take, ie: coolers. the weather? it could be 65 and sunny or 34 and flurries in november in western pa. (and with little notice of change) i would bring both warm and cold weather gear.

oh, and morton's steakhouse and ruth chris steakhouse are close to the william penn. both are really good, but bring your wallet. the steelhead brassiere is nearby as well, nice place.
