We stayed the weekend at this B&B and of all our travels so far, we agreed that this was the best place we've stayed at. Very knowledgable regarding local shopping, eateries, and things to do and see, easily and happily accommodating of my dietary restrictions, wonderful breakfasts! Just an excellent experience all the way around. In the future, should we...

It was our pleasure to have you as our guest! St. Louis is an awesome place to visit, and we enjoyed sharing our love of this city with you. I'm so glad we had a chance to chat over breakfast. Being greeted each morning by your cheerful smiles really made my weekend! Thank you :o)

Everything was excellent. I loved the large Josephine suite with the separate living and sleeping areas. Breakfast was delicious and filling (quiche, frittata, fruits, pastries, etc). Parking was convenient and available. Lafayette Square was a very pleasant neighborhood with park and restaurants within a short walk. Stacey and the 2 pooches were excellent hosts. It is walkable to Cardinals game...

Thank you for your kind, thoughtful review. We're very glad we had a chance to meet you. If only the weather had cooperated more during your stay!

We stayed at the Inn for one night; Stacy was beyond accommodating and did a great job making recommendations for our short stay. We walked around the Lafayette Sq neighborhood and had drinks and dinner there - a very cute neighborhood with lots of great options if you'd like to stay local to the hotel. Our room was very clean,...

We stayed at the Napoleon for a night in April on our first trip to St Louis. It was a delightful experience. The Lafayette room was spacious and well appointed, and even though my husband was on crutches he was happy he made the effort to climb the stairs. The breakfast was tasty and it was fun talking with the...

I'm delighted you chose to stay with us during your first visit to St. Louis. I wish we hadn't had a full house, or I would definitely have moved your reservation to our 1st floor room. Your husband was such a trooper with his crutches! We hope you're able to visit St. Louis again soon, and we would be honored...

Napoleons Retreat was a true treat. Stacy was wonderfully accommodating with great recommendations. Her breakfast was outstanding and so filling. We stayed in the Lafayette room. The house is truly lovely and spotless. My husband and I love the neighborhood with the park and great restaurants nearby. We will be back.

Napolean's Retreat was beautiful, inside and out. Stacey was a gracious host and prepared an absolutely elegant breakfast in the morning. While there's no parking on property, we had no problem finding a spot on the street out front. The home is about a block and a half from the Lafayette Square commercial district where there were many restaurants and...

I had an outstanding time at Napoleon's B&B. With an amazing room, great view, central location, and a delicious breakfast this place is a jewel. To top it all off, Stacy and Brian are as friendly as can be and have a deep knowledge of St Louis culture, nightlife, and food. Thanks again for everything and I appreciate your kindness.

I'm so glad the bad weather didn't hamper your trip to St. Louis. It seemed like we weren't much warmer than Michigan this past February, but I think there may have been a 50-degree day in there during your stay. I hope you're able to come see us when the city is in bloom, and I hope spring isn't too...
