Very Very Nice! The hotel was busy and hotel decor is fabulous. Very much updated but kept the details of when the hotel was first built decades ago. Probably a lot like it was when the hotel first opened a long time ago. Life in St Louis is buzzing! Safe area and walking distance to a lot in downtown.

We love the Magnolia family of hotels. Private, small, extraordinary. Do yourself a favor and visit Christopher in the bar. He will make you a fantastic cocktail. When you check-in make sure you're not staying on the third floor. The view of the brick wall and HVAC equipment is dreadful.

The Magnolia is located just off Washington, so nightlife is right around the corner. Very nicely appointed. Breakfast was just right. Valet parking was available, but a parking garage is a very short block away, and reasonable.

I travel extensively (domestic & international), and this is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at. The hotel, itself, is lovely ... beautiful architectural detail and decor ... clean ... comfortable ... the ammenities (breakfast and "happy hour") were great ... and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Just a short walk from lots of great eateries and... More

Laura A Well, what to say on this one... How about, "you're our new go-to-guest". Yeah, we like that! Thanks so much. Our staff will love this and hope your spring break with your daughter was everything you imagined. Glad we could share in it. See you next time. Travel safe. Mike More

I've stayed at this hotel the last 2 times coming to the city and could not be happier with my choice. The location is fantastic, the staff was extremely courteous and helpful, and the room was immaculately clean with a very nice view. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to visit!!!

My husband, 17 year old daughter and I recently stayed over night at The Magnolia Hotel. We were in town to visit Washington University and simply needed a nice place to stay over night. This hotel exceeded our wildest imaginations. First, the decor is breath-taking- looking down the hallway from the Check-In desk with a huge vintage chandellier and the... More

I am a Marriott gold member but chose The Magnolia over the Marriott next door because of the additional perks The Magnolia offered. With free internet, free breakfast, free drinks and a kids cookie bar each evening, its a much better value than the chain hotels. Add in the fact that the suite was the same price as a standard...

The Stash folks have done a lovely job of maintaining the integrity of the existing structure and infusing warm, modern design elements. What a beautiful building! The bed is one of the best we've slept on at a hotel. The pillows were not so great, but most hotel pillows aren't. We had a suite and the apartment feel was exactly... More

kym4639 Thanks for the awesome note. While we LOVE our Stash friends, it's all Magnolia that designed this one. But we'll give Stash a hug too. Sorry about the ice issue. Next time, just ring us up. We'll bring you a bathtub full. :) Travel safe. Mike More

We stayed 4 nights in a king room on the third floor which had a view of the lightwell and a large airconditioning unit which hummed constantly. So much for requesting a room with a nice view - and this when the hotel was all but empty. All but, because on the first night partying guests were also on the... More

We stayed at The Magnolia on our way down to another location for Spring Break and had wished we could have stayed a couple more days. The kids loved the late night “cookie bar” while my wife and I had an excellent “Lemon Drop” in the lounge. The beds were so comfortable that I had the best night sleep away... More
