Overall a lovely hotel, just had been given the wrong room but it was corrected right away, did not take in on the nightly drink reception but would have loved to and a very nice touch to your stay there, was in town for a Cardinals game and location was great, walking distance to game and most everything in downtown...

We loved the Magnolia! Our room was much larger than expected, our bed was so comfy, and we had great service! We walked to Busch Stadium, not too far at all. It was easy to park near the hotel and check-in and check-out were a breeze. The staff was great as well. We will be staying here again!

I loved the physical aspects of this hotel: it's location 6 blocks from the ballpark was perfect for walking to and from the Cub/Card game. It is off the beaten path so it's not a madhouse like the Hilton, etc. It is absolutely gorgeous in my opinion: the beautiful stained glass and library-like sitting area is fabulous as is the...

We were in town for the Cubs v Cardinals series and decided to stay at The Magnolia. So glad we did. Not only is The Magnolia a historic hotel, it is also AWESOME!!! location couldn't be better. We were a few blocks from Busch and even closer to Washington Ave. Bryan at the front desk was efficient, friendly and genuinely... More

The rooms were very clean. The beds are comfortable. We had a queen suit -- the room layout was a little odd but it was still nice. The staff was extremely nice -- couldn't have asked for better, they are the reason for the 5 star rating. Parking was $16 a night for self park in a parking garage or... More

This hotel is a joy! This is a boutique hotel inside of a historical building, with awesome service, friendly staff, free WiFi, library, full bar, ride service made by a Tesla car, free drinks every evening,...what else do you need?

From check-in to check-out, I had one of the most friendly front desk staff I have experienced. I have never stayed in this particular hotel in St. Louis and didn't know what to expect. I chose this hotel since it was within walking distance of an event I plan to attend. I love the intimate feel of the lobby area... More

The Magnolia hotel is great. The rooms are very well appointed and the staff friendly. Unfortunately it's in St Louis which does not have much to offer unless there is a baseball game on. There is very little happening around the hotel especially on the weekend. However, the Magnolia is a fantastic place to stay and hide away.

I chose this hotel because of its close proximity to the convention center. From the moment I walked in the door, I was treated like a star. The front desk associates, the restaurant staff, and the maid service employees treated me like I was the most important person to ever walk through their doors. The rooms were very clean and...

We went to this venue for a bachelorette party and with it's classy design and modern decor it was the perfect location! Everything about the hotel was exactly what we were looking for, by far our favorite piece was the cocktail hour that is available to all guests.
