Ok I stayed in this hotel for a Rams game, they lost. First of all this hotel is historic, but NOT run down. If you like crown molding and stained glass this is a very nice hotel, if you like sanitized plain white walls like in a Doubletree Hotel this hotel is not for you. We stayed in a double... More

I stayed here for 1 night with my husband and toddler as we drove through on a road trip. The staff was courteous, especially whoever waited on us the morning after (I think she had a Russian accent, and she was just lovely and attentive) when we enjoyed the hot continental breakfast. The price was affordable at $89/night, which I... More

The service is terrific here. My son and I arrived late in the evening, but the staff was patient and very helpful in attending to our needs, including charging our car for the evening. The room was very comfortable and spacious. When we asked where to have breakfast (we woke up late the next day), we were directed to a... More

Jonathan A Those late night arrivals are brutal, so our staff certainly understands and it's nice to read that they were on their game. As for breakfast, we're now curious to know which one so can pass that along to others as well. Now of course we'd rather you enjoy it with us, but we understand those late morning wake... More

We loved our stay at the Magnolia! Very simple but luxurious accommodations! Everyone was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed drinks in the lounge. Would definitely stay here again the next time we are in St Louis! Thanks for a great weekend!

The Magnolia Hotel in St. Louis is a fantastic hotel! It's located in downtown St. Louis in close proximity to many restaurants, shops, and a movie theater. It's also very close to a Metro station. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We experienced a wonderful stay. Several of the great amenities are the breakfast, evening reception, and the cookies... More

We had our Holiday party at the Magnolia and we stayed downtown.

The bed was comfortable, the room clean and cozy. The cost was reasonable for all the perks offered.... More

Had a wonderful stay at the Magnolia when we were in town for a Ram's game. Everyone we met was so friendly...from the reception desk to the bar. Our room was beautiful with a nice view. The bed was plush and comfy. I just love the bar/lounge area. Will definitely go back and have already recommended it to friends :)

Great hotel, and very hip/trendy! Cookie reception was a super cool addition the first night, but we never had time to attend the other manager reception.
