We like to try out different types of lodging when visiting St. Louis because we go frequently. The Seven Gables is definitely a departure from all the chain hotels in the area. Lots of charm and atmosphere with a comfortable bed and very nice bathroom. We chose a first floor room off the patio. There is no lift, so you have to schlep your luggage up the stairs.
The complimentary breakfast is adequate and saves the trouble of going out to find a place to eat.
The $17 parking fee was a surprise to us because I had understood from other reviews that we could find free parking nearby. Our plane was 3 hours late arriving so at 10:30pm we did not feel like looking for parking.
We had hoped to have a bite in the on site pub, but it had just closed when we arrived. That was one of the reasons we chose the Seven Gables. But the late flight was not their fault. All in all, I definitely recommend staying here. The people at the desk were friendly and very helpful when we asked where we could find a restaurant at such a late hour. We will go another time just to have a drink in their pub!More
