Hampton Inn & Suites St. Louis at Forest Park

Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is a clean, safe, family friendly hotel with pool & hot tub, and the basic Hampton Inn breakfast. The hotel is across from Forest Park which you can walk to but beware Forest Park is really big. The location is excellent if you're interested in Forest Park, the Hill or Wash U area. There is no charge for parking which is really nice in a city location. Forest Park is a gem - there's a zoo, a history museum, boating pavilion, and great walking paths (there's supposed to be a bike rental stop that we didn't try). The rooms are comfortable however there is no small fridge (which would have been really handy). There are no real restaurants in walking distant (except in Forest Park), but the Hill is a quick drive or cab ride. I suggest you make the drive over to Bogarts for their ribs. We also visited Grant's Farm.

What a great surprise to go back to this hotel and see beautiful upgrades! Money well spent. Very friendly staff at every turn! Pool area was very clean and inviting! Grand kids loved it and of course we did too!!! Really nice restaurant right next door as well! The wonderful Zoo is just across the highway too!!!

Room Tip: 5th or 6th floor facing the Arch is really nice!!!

We had 2 families staying at this Hampton Inn & we both loved it. It is located very close to the zoo, science musuem, & Galleria Mall. We will stay there again for sure when we go back to visit St Louis. Our rooms were just as we had asked with a crib in one room. The beds were comfortable as always at Hampton Inns. The free breakfast was okay and we were glad it was served until 10 am every morning.

The hotel was nice for a night before a zoo visit. The grandkids enjoyed the pool. Everything about the place was clean, breakfast was nice. The convenience to the zoo was the highest priority for our group and it is awesome for that reason.

I spent Memorial Weekend in St Louis and originally was slated to stay here a couple of nights.

Location: Location is Excellent if you have activities to attend at Forest Park. We were able to walk to the zoo from the hotel with 2 kids (7 and 11) with no issues. It was a quick 10-15 min walk. The Science museum is also a quick walk and you can get to the Arch in less than 20 minutes driving.

Parking: Parking is Excellent, especially for Diamond members, where they have parking right outside the door.

Dining: Average - Imo's Pizza is on the corner from the hotel (5 min walk), the restaurant onsite, Highlander, was an Irish Sports Bar that served decent bar fare. Breakfast was your typical Hampton breakfast with eggs and meat, waffles, cereal, fruit and yogurt.

Rooms: Very Good - Rooms were clean and comfortable. I didn't hear much traffic from the interstate.

Front Desk: Average - nothing really stood out here, but nothing was horrible either.

Value: Poor - I am a Diamond member and used points for my stay.I checked out after one night and the main reason was I couldn't justify spending 40,000 points for this hotel when I can go 10 mins down the road and stay at another Hampton Inn for 10,000 points that was just as nice, which is what I did.

Overall I would say this hotel ranks about 3.5

keshaffer,
Thank you for all the feedback and review of our hotel. Unfortunately we do decide the point totals for our hotel, as that number is picked by Hilton. We are happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed the location that made it so convenient to access the local attractions. Thank you again, Jake.

My family usually stays in a Hampton if possible. We stumbled upon this one and decided to stop, the service was great other than the fact that we didn't realize we didn't have a tub until later that night. We ended up with a handicapped room and a walk in shower deal. My wife wasn't able to take a hot bath like she normally does. The breakfast was also under par. The eggs and sausage were really fake tasting. Other than those two things, the rooms and service were great. The beds were extremely comfortable and the room was clean.

This hotel is ideally located and has excellent service. The rooms are spacious and quiet clean. Very friendly staffs and courteous too. This hotel offers round-the-clock coffee and morning breakfast. Breakfast offers good varieties and the food is good too. Stayed here couple of times and one of the best for the money one pays. Strongly recommend this place
