“A nice evening away...”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

My wife and I decided on a short getaway in the city for our 17th anniversary, so we picked up tickets for some live music at Jazz at the Bistro and booked a night at the Grand Center Inn.

Our host greeted us at the door and was very friendly and hospitable. We had reserved the Sheldon suite, so we were a bit surprised when he mentioned that we would be staying the in Contemporary suite. We're pretty laid back so we just let it ride without mentioning the Sheldon since the rooms are more or less comparable from a value perspective. However, if we had booked the Fox suite or something more expensive, I'm sure we would have spoken up.

The Inn itself is a beautiful old place in the Grand Center section of St. Louis (just behind the Fox Theatre). Parking was free and close and the area was not at all sketchy - we had no concerns about walking the quarter mile over to the Bistro and back for our dinner and the concert.

The Contemporary Suite was clean, neat and comfortable. We enjoyed the clawfoot tub in the bathroom as well as the nice couch and comfy chair/ottoman combo. I might recommend that they replace the mattress and/or frame on the bed as it sagged a bit in the middle, and we found ourselves rolling into each other in the center all night.

Folks who don't enjoy climbing stairs will want to book something other than the Contemporary Suite as it is on the third floor. Wasn't a bother for us, but worth mentioning.

We did not order breakfast at the Inn so I can't comment on that. Instead we went downtown and had breakfast at Rooster (my favorite STL breakfast). Check it out if you do not get breakfast at the Inn.

All in all it was a positive experience, and I'm sure we'll visit the Grand Center Inn again in the future.

Room Tip: If you do want breakfast, be sure to choose that option on the website when booking your room. It i...

A historical mansion beautifully restored and tastefully decorated in grand style. We enjoyed our near-week in the spacious Fox Suite. Very comfortable bed, linens, and quality bath products. Our charming host Renato prepared delicious plated breakfasts – always something different – and he was very welcoming and helpful in providing information about St. Louis and the area. The Inn is within walking distance to all the great theaters in the area and very central to the sights of St. Louis. So much to see at Forest Park, the site of the 1904 World’s Fair. The Art Museum (free!) has one of the best collections in the country. We also loved the Botanical Garden which is further south. How can you explore 87 acres? It’s quite manageable, but they also have a little tram. One more tip: The Four Seasons hotel lounge deck on the 8th floor offers a great view of the city and the Arch.

I was very impressed with my stay at Grand Center Inn. The staff was friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the Sheldon and our friends were in the Contemporary. Both rooms were very nicely decorated and spacious. Our room was a bit cool, but the bed was warm and comfy. Our bathroom was huge and the shower was very nice. I was impressed with the details- real kleenex in the bathroom and rainbath in the shower, a hair dryer that dried my hair quickly. The bedding was very nice- soft sheets, down comforter, and fluffy pillows. I don't usually get these touches in some of the larger chain hotels. I will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Grand Center Inn for a romantic weekend getaway and this facility far exceeded our expectations! It is located in the center of St. Louis' Theater District and is wonderfully maintained. The home has a great heritage having been owned by decedents of Meriwhether Lewis and has been completely restored. The service is five star outstanding and personable. If you are staying in the St. Louis area for pleasure or business, you simply have to stay here. They have great pictures at www.grandcenterinn.com

Thank you for making our weekend wonderful.

We were here for one night. Very clean and very comfortable atmosphere. We stayed in the Sheldon room. Very nice bed, room was spotless! Breakfast next morning was good too. Coffee and tea available at all times. Within walking distance to many restsurants and Fox Theatre. We will stay here again.

Even though my big day was a small occasion it could not have been better. Our wedding day consisted of 25 of our closest friends and family members at Grand Center Inn. The day could not have been more perfect. Just wanted to take the time to thank the staff for all of the hard work and dedication to make everything go just right. The Mansion is absolutely beautiful and the downstairs common area worked great for our ceremony and receiption. Even though my husband and I did not spend the night our guest that did all had great things to say. So thanks again.

An old college friend arranged for us to stay at this hotel and it was the perfect location to meet with a group of college friends. Friendly greetings by owners upon arrival, beautiful location and located close to the Grand Center. This hotel is blissfully quiet at night, spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed, breakfast surpassed all expectations. We had such a great time and decided to meet at this hotel again next year. We loved it!
