5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had driven by many times, always thinking, "That place looks interesting...." It wasn't just interesting, it was awesome. The Magnolia is an older property that has been updated thoughtfully, tastefully, and efficiently. Its small, older rooms have been combined to create small suites, each with a sitting area, sleeping area, large bath, and walk-through closet. They are beautifully decorated,... More

Beautiful hotel in downtown St Louis. Atmosphere was quiet and elegant. Staff was very helpful. Highly reccomend. The rooms are spacious and the bed in my room was quite comfortable. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in St Louis.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel the last weekend of March for AMA Supercross. We chose this hotel because of the downtown location. The location was beyond fantastic for us. It was no more than a 5-10 min walk to the arena for our event. We absolutely loved the valet parking, worth the money. Staff was friendly, accommodating... More

Stayed at the Magnolia with a friend from out of town. Couldn't stop taking pictures of the beautiful property - stained glass windows, marble floors, cool architecture. Staff at front desk and at the bar were soooo friendly and helpful. Parking is a pain, but that goes with staying in downtown St. Louis. Evening happy hour was great. Breakfast was... More

Very comfortable suite and attentive staff. We had three rooms for family get together in the Magnolia St. Louis. We were able to relax in the bar/lounge area after a Cardinals Ball game and extend the fun without dealing with the traffic. Only a few short blocks from the stadium.

Our room was very roomy and comfortable. The staff was exceptionally courteous and professional. The location of the hotel is great, downtown within easy walking distance of ballpark, casino, and restaurants. Valet parking is available for $28 a night. There is a manager's reception with free beer and wine and a good breakfast. We were quite satisfied.

My first time here - this rivals the better Hotel W's of the Midwest. I'm definitely coming back. One minor complaint - 2 of the 3 times I asked if I could use the Tesla it was unavailable. Other than that, great room, solid gym, nice staff - definitely a friendly and welcoming team.
