Hotel is very convenient to local sights, including the Arch and Forest Park, home of the zoo, the art museum and the history museum. Room very modern, comfy bed and bathroom with a rain shower head (I LOVE those!). The only two downsides: 1) the neighborhood seems a little dicey, especially at hight. 2) the tv is on the wall beside the bed and there was no comfortable chair in the room in which to sit to watch tv.

This is a really beautiful, small boutique hotel. Stunning bedrooms, Tempurpedic beds, crisp linen, large bathrooms.

What really made this so perfect were the front desk staff. So friendly and helpful. A big shout out to Jimmie for going above and beyond. Just outstanding.

Highly recommended.

Wonderful boutique hotel right on the edge of Saint Louis University and across street and up block from Pappy's -- best BBQ ever! Rooms are elegant; artwork is amazing throughout the hotel. Staff was very friendly. Bathroom amenities were Philosophy, which you don't usually find in hotels. If you drive a hybrid, parking is FREE! Tempur-Pedic mattresses with wonderful; bamboo sheets that were like silk. Very upscale without paying a huge upscale price. We will stay there again.

The room was elegant, the restaurant was superb, & the service impeccable. This was my second stay here and I was just as impressed as the first time. Ashley at the front desk was as courteous and sweet as anyone could ever ask for. You cannot ask for a better place at ay price!!

We stayed at Hotel St. Ignacio during our wedding weekend. We have had more than 80% of the rooms booked for our guests and the hotel and its staff were nothing but wonderful throughout the entire process. We worked with Rachel from the begining to reserve the hotel block and make changes to our reservations. She was absolutely amazing and made this part of the wedding planning process painless and easy. Upon checking in all of the hotel staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very clean and furnished in modern decor. The food at both the cafe and Triumph Grill was execellent. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The suites were great for getting ready the day of the wedding. They each have fireplaces and the sh...

This is a wonderfully idiosyncratic hotel on the edge of the Saint Louis University Campus, named after Ignatius of Loyola, a Basque soldier who found God after a cannonball amputated his leg.
He also founded the Jesuit order (the largest order of non-Catholics sworn to loyalty to the Pope, and the greatest intellectual contributors to the Catholic tradition)
It reminds me of a high end retreat house-a vow of poverty facility with wonderful original religious art (contemporary and may come from the SLU museum), brilliant use of an old brick structure, with great color sense and style, lots of stone.
Minor downside-brick, stone, and minimalist carpet makes it noisy when other gusts come in late and walk down the hallways.
I liked (among many other things) the TV disguised as a Baroque mirror
minor gripe-please have area maps at th front desk.
