We stayed at the Napoleon for a night in April on our first trip to St Louis. It was a delightful experience. The Lafayette room was spacious and well appointed, and even though my husband was on crutches he was happy he made the effort to climb the stairs. The breakfast was tasty and it was fun talking with the... More

I'm delighted you chose to stay with us during your first visit to St. Louis. I wish we hadn't had a full house, or I would definitely have moved your reservation to our 1st floor room. Your husband was such a trooper with his crutches! We hope you're able to visit St. Louis again soon, and we would be honored... More

Napoleons Retreat was a true treat. Stacy was wonderfully accommodating with great recommendations. Her breakfast was outstanding and so filling. We stayed in the Lafayette room. The house is truly lovely and spotless. My husband and I love the neighborhood with the park and great restaurants nearby. We will be back.

Nepoleon's Retreat is a crown jewel of B&B's in St Louis. The home is beautiful and the owner Stacy is absolutely wonderful. Any room you choose will exceed your expectations as well as her 5 star breakfast. The location in Lafayette Square is perfect for any destination in St Louis. Our stay was so enjoyable, we are now making this... More

Napolean's Retreat was beautiful, inside and out. Stacey was a gracious host and prepared an absolutely elegant breakfast in the morning. While there's no parking on property, we had no problem finding a spot on the street out front. The home is about a block and a half from the Lafayette Square commercial district where there were many restaurants and... More

Stayed for 2 nights at this very tranquil B&B off Lafayette Square. Gourmet breakfast, friendly owners, spacious bedroom with en suite and lots more. Exactly what we were looking for. Would definitely stay there again.

I had an outstanding time at Napoleon's B&B. With an amazing room, great view, central location, and a delicious breakfast this place is a jewel. To top it all off, Stacy and Brian are as friendly as can be and have a deep knowledge of St Louis culture, nightlife, and food. Thanks again for everything and I appreciate your kindness.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the beautiful Napoleon's Retreat. Our third floor room was HUGE and clean and soooo peaceful. We slept like babies. The B&B is decorated in lovely antiques yet had completely modern amenities including TV (husband can't live without it) and WIFI. We were treated to an amazing breakfast by our charming host, Stacy.

I'm so glad the bad weather didn't hamper your trip to St. Louis. It seemed like we weren't much warmer than Michigan this past February, but I think there may have been a 50-degree day in there during your stay. I hope you're able to come see us when the city is in bloom, and I hope spring isn't too... More

Stayed at Napoleon's Retreat for New Years eve. Perfect for a quite, romantic celebration and in Lafayette Square, one of the best areas of St. Louis. Stacy is a terrific hostess, the house is well decorated, and the food was delicious. Would definitely consider going back.

Very satisfied with our stay at Napoleon's retreat. Very clean room and bathroom. Great breakfast. Loved the privacy of our room which was the Charles de Gaulle room. Conveniently located two blocks away from our choice for dinner which we walked to. Looking forward to another stay here. Thank you Stacy, Peanut and Indie :)

A last minute trip to St. Louis when where there was a major convention taking place resulted in a problem finding a hotel room. On impulse, I decided to check into B&B's and luckily found this gem. My room with its own sitting area was very clean, very comfortable and nicely decorated. The location was perfect since there are some... More
