This hotel has so many good things, yet the stay was a real disappointment. The hotel is beautiful, and the front desk staff and valet personnel were extremely nice. The room itself was nicely appointed, and the beds were wonderful. The bad? Breakfast was disappointing. No cereal bowls out, the oatmeal was stone cold, no tea bags available. As we... More

Allenflusa Thanks for reaching out. We hope you give our general manager a call to discuss in more detail and we'll make it right. We're glad we had some good in there, but we need to fix the bad and the ugly. Rest assured, we will. Thanks for the honesty. We apologize for not having a perfect stay arranged for... More

Although it was the wrap around historic stained glass and original crystal chandeliers that first caught our eye, it was the excellent and attentive staff that won us over. We live locally and wanted an urban getaway for our 15th anniversary. This 1924 hotel, on the Registry of Historic Places, has been fully renovated to integrate the historic details with... More

This historic hotel has been beautifully updated and the location is terrific. The staff was friendly and eager to help with any request, large or small. They went to extra lengths to make sure we had everything we needed. The new beds were super-comfortable. This was a great spot for a business trip.

The Magnolia is a nice hotel that brings some old charm with up to date amenities. Rooms are a great, comfortable size. The location is also perfect for exploring Olive St., downtown, and the Cardinals ballpark.

We were very happy with our room. Spacious with separate sitting area and good luggage/wardrobe space. The beds were sooo comfortable and in general very little traffic noise. The lobby, bar and restyle re freezing. Everyone complained but the answer was it is automatic. Tip - take a jacket if you are going to breakfast or downstairs for too long.... More

I had a great stay this past weekend at The Magnolia Hotel in St. Louis! I was in town to attend a Cardinals game and my stay at the hotel was amazing.

I visit St. Louis regularly, and have done so for many years. The recently opened Magnolia hotel is yet another refurbishment of the original Mayfair, after many other iterations over the years. The common areas are beautiful, and preserve the elegance and majesty of the original Mayfair. The room I occupied late this week was very nice, and pristinely clean.... More

The good: the staff was great and incredibly helpful -if initially appearing aloof. The building is a historic hotel recently renovated with updated modern finishings. It is also right downtown, and so is close to everything. The bad: Soundproofing in room was not really effective; I could hear everything that occurred in either adjacent room. I'm not sure if the... More
