I usually stay at national brand hotels (Marriott, etc.) so I know what I'm going to get. But my admin booked me at the Magnolia for ease of access to the Peabody. I was pleasantly surprised. Great hotel. LARGE room. Staff and valet parking staff provided excellent customer service. All-around great trip!!

This has become our go-to hotel in downtown St. Louis. Great location within walking distance of Busch Stadium. Rooms are very nice and extremely comfortable. Evening managers reception and complimentary breakfast are added bonuses. Highly recommend this for anyone looking for a great place to stay downtown.

This is an adorable, chic, 1920s throwback decor hotel! The staff is phenomenal and treat you like royalty! Everyone is very informative, which was great because we had no clue where to go and what to do! The only thing I would boo is the continental/ "a-la-carte" breakfast .. Tasted like mushy powdered eggs but aside from that small bleh,... More

I liked the suite and decor. l It was modern and stylish. The entry was secure. The staff was helpful. There is valet parking and also parking lots and garages nearby. The entry lounge is comfortable and inviting. I was busy with a wedding so I didn't try all the ammenities they offered. I did appreciate cabs being on street... More

My son and I come to St. Louis each year around the 4th of July. The hotel we usually stay at doubled their usual rates so we tried this hotel. It was a good choice. We had a nice suite with breakfast included. Room was clean and staff very friendly. Worked out in the fitness center and it was also... More

We came in from about 5 hours out for a couple of Cardinals games on 4th of July weekend.

Easy walk to the ball park, we had great service from everyone at the hotel. Especially Kurt! We wanted to get a ride around downtown and he got us a number and made sure we got a ride to and from. Not the best view, but we weren't in our room much. Happy hour from 5:30-6:30 complimentary plus cookies at... More

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...
