“Close to downtown activities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We wanted to stay close to downtown since we were going to City Museum the next day. Parking cost $14, and the parking garage was tight. Room was nice and clean. The breakfast was okay. They had waffles, fruit, cereal, etc. The pool was okay. There were a few unruly kids that made it hard to swim with younger children, but that isn't the hotels fault. Our room was next to the stairs, so the door kept banging open and close until about eleven PM. We needed up in a corner room that had a huge shower, so that made up for the noise.

Room Tip: Don't get the fifth floor. That's where the pool and game room was located. There is a const...

I was in St. Louis with 6 other people from my university for the National Pastoral Musicians conference and we absolutely LOVED staying at this Hampton. The views from our rooms of the arch were great, but what made the stay was the staff. We were welcomed by Tim, who was extremely helpful in figuring out payments that had been done incorrectly by our school. Throughout the week, Tim greeted us every time we walked in by name and asked how our day was. He made us feel very welcome, so much so that we ended up performing a song for him at the end of the week just to thank him for all he did. Avion, one of the security/parking people was also excellent. He was always there with a smile to ask how our day was and recommended some great restaurants for us to try. Every single staff member greeted us and was very friendly, making us feel welcome. The rooms were clean and well taken care of as well. Having worked in a hotel for 6 years and knowing the little things that often go unnoticed, I was extremely impressed by the staff and the accommodations.

Dear Claire4560,

We absolutely loved having a large amount of rooms reserved by the National Pastoral Musicians conference. It was our pleasure to have you stay with us! Thank you for mentioning our welcoming staff, especially Tim! I wish we could have all heard you perform; what a treat! I will let Avion, and his supervisor, know of the nice comments he received in your review. To a former hotel staff member, thank you for staying and leaving your comments in TripAdvisor. We hope to have you back, very soon! Leslie Varney

Was here in late July for an anniversary getaway. My wife and i arrived a little early, but were allowed to get our room anyway. The room was very nice. Also the staff was quick to help with local restaraunts, and attractions.The included breakfast is great! The hotel is within walking distance to the arch,restaraunts,stadiums. We will stay here again on our next visit to St. Louis. The only rub i had, is with the $14.00 per day extra parking charge to park at the hotel.

Dear SEA M,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during such a special event. We know that you have a lot of choices and are pleased you picked us. Please keep in mind, you always have to pay to stay in large, downtown cities. We do have one of the least inexpensive fees, though. We await your return! Leslie Varney

We had a great stay at the Hampton Inn. The staff is super pleasant and helpful. The breakfast that is included is actually good and had lots of options. We were also within walking distance to Busch Stadium. We will definitely book here again when we return to St. Louis!

Dear WillieMcGee,

With a name like that, it sounds like you could be a former Cardinal, yourself :) When you are reserving for another Cards game, call early; we book up very quickly when they are in town.

The hotel was very clean, staff was AMAZING, and the location was perfect. The swimming pool is an indoor pool however the water was very cold. That literally is my only complaint about this stay. The free breakfast is okay, nothing fancy but you do leave filling full.

Disclaimer . . . . I'm not a luxury hotel person, so I'm not expecting the Ritz. With that being said, the Hampton Inn Gateway Arch is simply one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. Every staff member that I've encountered, from the front desk to maintenance guys on the elevator, has been pleasant and welcoming. When I showed up a bit too early to check in, the front desk folks made sure I was comfortable in the lobby with wifi access, and stored my suitcase until a room was ready. Room is very nice, with extremely comfortable bed (typical of Hilton properties, in my experience), good cable tv, etc. Views of the Mississippi from either side of the hotel, and views of the Arch from the south side. Breakfast opens at 6am every day, and is excellent for a Hampton Inn; included heavier items such as omelets and sausage, plus waffles, oatmeal, pastries, fresh fruit, etc., etc. My stay was for business, but this is across the street from the Arch, and ideal for a vacation stay as well. Two light rail stops are within two blocks, providing easy access to Lambert airport (30 minutes or so, for $4.00 each way). Next trip to St. Louis, I'm staying here.

Room Tip: High up for best views.

Dear cantfindmyglasses,

We appreciate you! We are thrilled that you found our property while in town for business. If you know others that are looking for a home away from home when in St. Louis, please pass the word! Also, thank you for recommending us for family travel. We have had a lot in, this summer. Also, thank you for the feedback on Metro Link! We always offer this option when callers ask. We hope that you will hurry back and enjoy our On the House Hot Breakfast, again. So nice to hear that the staff exceeded your expectations. Leslie Varney

The Hampton staff was extremely pleasant and the location is quite nice with many attractions close by. The check in and parking process is a little complicated as one way and a circle back through to get to parking garage and exit/entrances on the garage doors should be more clearly marked

Dear Cheryl B,

Thank you for being our guest and commenting in TripAdvisor. I apologize for any confusion regarding pulling up to check in and parking. You can go both directions in the Porte Cochere, but it can be a bit confusing when you enter and then have to exit back on to the street to park. We are always looking for feedback on how to improve our on-site parking, so, thank you! We hope that you will return, quickly, and our staff will greet you with a friendly Hampton Inn smile.
