This is an OLD hotel that has been many hotels over the years. The location is nice, spitting distance from Chase Park Plaza. The hallways have a mysterious sewage smell, which the hotel tries to address with air fresheners located / mounted every few steps in the hallway. The hotel has had some nice updates, the lobby looks brand new...

This is my second time to stay here and I guess it takes me awhile to learn my lesson. The smell of raw sewage ruins anything positive in this place. It is so handy to Barnes Jewish making it a great choice. They will give you a reduced rate if you tell them you're here for the hospital. The staff...

We stayed at this location when it was the Hotel Indigo and loved it. Then is was sold to some other chain, then sold again to Holiday Inn Express. The staff is wonderful, very concerned and considerate. They upgraded us to a suite and allowed our dog to stay free. They welcomed us the next morning with smiles and asked...

This hotel is very near my mother's house in the Central West End, so I stayed here by default. The pleasant receptionist gave me a room right near the lobby, 115, because I walked with a cane. I opened the door and was pleasantly surprised at the clean, nicely furnished room, with a window onto the courtyard. The room was...

This hotel has changed hands multiple times - was a Best Western, then closed for years, then was Hotel Indigo, then a Comfort Inn, now a Holiday Inn Express - it's been around for many, many years. The Good: The location is exceptional - just blocks from world-class dining, the beautiful Cathedral-Basilica of St. Louis, and Barnes Jewish Hospital complex,...

This interesting hotel is on the National Register of Historical Places because it is the first motor hotel in St. Louis. However, it badly needed updating and cleaning. The shower in my room was dingy, with the tile cracked and stained, and fixtures rusted. The carpet needed vacuuming. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was your standard Holiday Inn breakfast,...

This hotel is tired. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, but the room left a lot to be desired. It smelled old and there was mold in the shower. If we were staying for more than a night, I would have left. There wasn't enough parking and it's clear that HIE bought a much older hotel and rebranded it. I...

Tried the HI Exp. at CWE on our last trip to StL. Nice clean property. Easy to get to and they had plenty of parking. Had a King room and it was less than $100 for a Saturday night. It is a great location for walking through the CWE to enjoy food and drink while not needing your car! We...

We had stayed here last year when visiting friends in the area. Decided to do it again. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Bathroom is tiny especially for my tall husband. Since it is a historic building, they were not allowed to change the size. Enjoyed having a refrigerator in the room. They do need to vacuum the halls and...
