“Very Nice”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

This hotel is in a good location and is very nice. You can tell the hotel is older but it has been nicely renovated. The rooms are clean and my bed was very comfortable. I didn't try the breakfast buffet but was told it was very good and that the owner of the hotel liked to talk with the hotel guest while they were at the buffet. I got lost trying to find my room when I checked because I took the wrong elevator. There are two towers in this hotel, so be sure to find out which tower you are in. The receptionist didn't tell me this. The garage is connected to the hotel by a walkway. If you belong to the Holiday Inn Priority Club, you get access to the concierge lounge which is great. There is beer and wine in the lounge with one entree to snack on, like wings or meatballs. The hotel is very close to the St. Louis Galleria and metro stops. I would stay here again.

Traveling through St Louis. Lucky to find this hotel. Very clean. Great value. Breakfast was wonderful. Staff helpful and friendly. We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel with good amenities that was convenient to Maplewood and Wash U. This hotel offers all that.

I spent two nights in Clayton, MO at the Crowne Plaza. It is an older stately looking hotel with a lot of character. It situated in Clayton, MO which in and of itself is a wonderful little town very close to downtown St. Louis.
Everyone we encountered at the hotel was beyond friendly. The breakfast buffet was delicious and had everything imaginable. Pete Zes, the owner, came around to every table and personally welcomed everyone to the hotel. Nice touch.
We used the 5th floor lounge access which was wonderful. The first night we had free spaghetti and meatballs and free drinks. The second night it was hot snacks. The lady attendant was wonderful and recognized after the first night.

Will definitely stay here again.

1. Janice & Taylor at the front were extremely friendly and helpful. You can definitely feel the "midwestern hospitality" from them. I have to give them credit for some of the fastest check ins I've seen from any hotel.

2. Lobby and conference rooms are very grand and elegant. There are chandeliers everywhere in the lobby, conference hallways, etc.

3. Breakfast buffet comes with the room and it's got really good stuff. The omelet line is always 3-4 people deep.

4. There is plenty of wheelchair accessibility everywhere compared to most hotels.

5. Hotel is in a very good location near very good restaurants and the train station are all in walking distance.

6. Concierge lounge is 2 floors and Arlisa was also very friendly and hospital to everyone.

7. Internet speeds are crazy fast. 18 Mbps download and 9 Mbps upload.


1. There is plenty of brass everywhere in the hotel on handrails, elevators, etc but none of it is polished. Just a personal issue... most people probably won't even notice it.

2. I saw at least 3 people in the lobby that were shirtless coming from the pool. This does not bother me but some folks may not like it.

3. Parking is in a garage and the driveway up to the hotel lobby is very tight and small. The hotel is on a 40 degree hill which is weird.

4. It looks as if the Police station is across the street.

The hotel is very convenient to Wash U. with a reasonable price. Be careful which elevator you get on, they don't allow you to get to all the rooms. It was sometimes difficult to get from one place to another (the workout room to our room). The indoor swimming pool is in the basement and is in need of some renovation. The room was very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast offered a wide variety of offerings including a made to order omelet.

We enjoyed our 2-night stay very much. The rooms were comfortable and very clean and most importantly... Quiet. It was so nice to stay in a room where the AC/Heat system was very quiet. The staff was amazing and very attentive. Shanika helped finalize the reservation over the phone and was not only able to get us an upgrade, but adjoining rooms as well. Please thank her personally for us. We were also pleased to be greeted and offered any assistance we needed by the General Manager, Mr. Whitnah, during our "free" breakfast buffet, (which, by the way, was delicious). It did take a little navigating to find the pool, but it was worth the search. Our grandchildren loved it. Also thank the young lady at the front desk who checked us in, we think her name was Jamie. She was delightful and gave us great dining advice and coupons for our visit to the St. Louis Zoo. All-in-all, it was a great experience. Thank you!!!

Room Tip: Find hotels that do not have noisy AC/Heat units.

I was very pleased with my stay at this property. The doormen were very accommodating towards myself and my family. Also, I loved the hardwood floors in my room and how spacious the rooms are. If I were in the St. Louis area again, I would definitely stay here again.
