We stayed here on a quick trip to St. Louis. The staff was wonderful. Angie, breakfast staff, is so friendly and kind. Our room was clean. If you're a light sleeper, ask for a room away from the highway. It didn't bother us but the street noise may bother some. Downtown is a short drive away.

As someone who lived in St. Louis about 20 years ago, the area this Residence Inn is located makes me reluctant to book it. This used to be a very bad neighborhood with many undesirable qualities, especially crimes. However, reading other nice comments from other TripAdvisor users made me feel like that I should give it a try since my first option of Residence Inn at Brentwood was full. Boy, I am so glad that I did book this hotel.

First of all, the hotel is just off I-70 exit and you won't miss it. Secondly, it is in a well-lit area with tall fence and security guards. My concern about security vanished the minute I drove into the premise.

We booked a two bedroom unit and were pleasant to find out that the unit actually has 1 king and 2 queen size beds. It is very spacious and fits our party of 4 perfectly. The rooms are clean and everything is good condition. The front desk staff are very warm and helpful.

The breakfast and the late afternoon receptions have fresh fruits and a wide range of other options. The dinner and breakfast together saved us probably $60 and they beat eating at McDonald's or Wendy's handily.

Going to downtown area for sightseeing is an easy 5 minute drive or you can take the hotel's shuttle. This hotel is absolutely the best choice for St. Louis area if you are interested in an easy to find hotel with quick access to the downtown area.

Room Tip: Book the two-bedroom unit if you are traveling with kids. They are spacious.

I have stayed here for 2 weeks during my recent business trip to St. Louis and it was a pleasant one. This hotel is suitable for both business and pleasure travelers. The rooms are kitchen-attached and you can cook yourself if you are bored of eating out. It's a great help especially for the foreign travelers who will have different eating habits. The rooms are well maintained and spacious. The front desk is helpful and pleasant and the service staffs are courteous and sincere. There is a small market in the hotel where you can buy snacks, drinks and chocolates. There is no mini bar in the room but there is a full-fledged bar in the lobby. The complimentary breakfast is good with many varieties. The best part is that they offer free dinner and beer on every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays. The pool and the gym are decent enough. Free wifi connectivity is good and fast enough for video calls. If you need even faster connection there is an option to pay and get it. The hotel has shuttle services and they do free pickup and drop to and fro nearby spots. There are no attractions or shopping areas in walk-able distance and you will have to rely on your own transport or the hotel shuttle. Also, there is no restaurant in the hotel. Pet lovers will love this place as they can bring their pets along. Overall, I enjoyed staying here.

The hotel is conveniently located to the expressway and easy to get downtown, to the Hill, to Central West End/Forest Park, etc. it is not within walking distance to anything so be aware of that. We have stayed at many residence Inns and usually they are very roomy. We have 2 kids and they are usually fine on the pullout. This room was tiny. When we pulled out the sofa bed, we could barely get the base down because it was hitting the dresser drawer. We tried to upgrade to a two bedroom but they were sold out. They did bring up a cot so each child could have more sleeping space but the cot touched the fridge when laid flat. The other features of the hotel were good - we didn't take advantage of the food too much because we wanted to eat at the local restaurants but it looked like a nice spread. The kids swam in the pool.

Room Tip: If you have more than 2 people in your family get a 2 bedroom.

I am truly sorry that we were not able to find you a room that was more spacious. On nights that we are sold out our options are unfortunately limited. Should your travels bring you our way again, please call us directly to book your room and we will be happy to work with you to ensure the size of your room meets your needs and exceeds your expectations!

Was very impressed by the hotel. The staff was helpful and pleasant. The shuttle service was free, which was helpful due to the location not being within walking distance to Scottrade and downtown. Loved "Norm", our shuttle driver. Also, really impressed that this hotel was comparable in price and not price gouging due to the event popularity. The rooms were roomy enough for 2 adults and 2 children and very clean.

We would stay here again and recommend it to everyone!
