My daughter and I stayed in the Napoleon Suite on the third floor of this beautiful B&B. It was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Stacy welcomed us and gave many good restaurant recommendations when we checked in. The whole inn is very clean and welcoming. Her breakfasts are delicious! We enjoyed our stay very much and appreciated Stacy's input on... More

Lucky. That is what you are if you get to book a room at Napoleon's Retreat with Stacy and Brian. Seriously, this place was far better than we could have ever imagined. Brian greeted us at the door and welcomed us by our first names. If you get the opportunity to talk to him, he has a vast knowledge of... More

I'm so glad you had a chance to meet "the ghost of Napoleon's Retreat"! Brian's very quiet & keeps to himself much of the time, but he's passionate about microbrews & loves to recommend hidden gems to guests. I am very thankful I had a chance to meet you both -- you're absolutely fantastic & such superb guests! Your warmth... More

We return every year to Napoleon's Retreat. Stacy is the best hostess we have ever known. She is extremely gracious and friendly, a wonderful cook and very helpful regarding things to do and see. Every morning we are treated to a beautiful, imaginative breakfast. The house is delightful, big rooms, meticulously clean and freshly decorated. The neighborhood is fascinating, easily... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at this beautiful B&B. The room was really nice and comfortable. Enjoyed the great quality soap, shampoo and lotion provided also. Stacy is a gracious host and made delicious breakfasts each morning. There is so much to do there in Lafayette square all within walking distance. We'll definitely go again.

I don't usually write reviews, but in this case I can't resist. Napoleon's Retreat is among the top five B&Bs I've had the privilege of frequenting. The place is a gem. High ceilings and airy rooms, quiet, perfect hostpitality, nestled in a gracious historic neighbourhood and within walking distance of fine dining and a gorgeous public park. It's a hike... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a road trip across America. Wonderful owners, gorgeous room and tasty breakfast! Nice bar just down the road. Enjoyed exploring St. Louis and lots of helpful tips from owners. Had a really nice stay and sure we will be back one day!

Napoleon Retreat was awesome!! So personable and cozy, location was great, the breakfast was to die for as well. We will definately return when in St Louis.

This is our second stay at Napoleons and it is always great. The food is amazing and the rooms are super nice with a comfortable bed, the Burgundy Room has an awesome new jetted tub. I look forward to our next stay there.

this was a nice place with clean rooms and a comfortable location close to the city. Only issue for me was the on street parking - not a problem per se, but our cars are in the +$100K zone and really need to be in an off street parking location. Other than that it was a fine stop for a... More

Jim, thank you for your kind words about Napoleon's Retreat Bed & Breakfast. We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. As mentioned on our web site, parking is in a separate, designated lane with about 15 feet of clearance from on-street traffic. Many of the 130-year-old homes in our neighborhood don't have garages.

Just wanted to share that our stay at Napoleon's Retreat was top notch. Our room was comfortable, clean, and classy, great sheets and whirlpool tub.
