Needing a room in order to spend a weekend near the Forest Park area, we had a hard time finding a room at a decent rate. However, fortunately for us, the Holiday Inn had rooms at a good rate. While, as previously noted, the hotel does show some signs of age, it is, nonetheless, in a very desirable area -... More

Paid 120 for the room and I feel it wasn't worth it. Carpet in the hallways are stained and dirty. Toilet had urine under the lid. Hotel information binder in the room was filthy. These were the bad parts. Overall I slept good bed was comfortable and the hotel was quiet. Wish they had a free breakfast for what we... More

I tried this hotel pre- and post-renovation, and the results are pretty disappointing. The new thermostat is so cheap that there is no "auto" setting for the fan. The furniture is newer, but the room still has an older feel to it. At this price point, there are nicer options in the area.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel from your recent stay with us. I apologize for the feeling that the renovation nearly three years ago is not up to par. The thermostats in the guest rooms are in fact high quality that detect when the guest is in the room. There is a switch for the fan... More

This hotel is a bit dated, but the staff is VERY NICE, and the rooms are large and the beds comfortable. A lot of folks wrote bad stuff about this place but I found it to be a nice place. The staff is wonderful, and it is in a central location very near all St. Louis attractions.

for my stay in St. Louis - a spacious comfortable room included a nice HD-TV with a wide selection of channels, a decent-sized refrigerator, in-room coffee maker, iron/board and hi-speed internet that was actually capable of showing streaming video (without paying an additional fee). The hotel itself provided plenty of free parking, coffee at the front desk, USA Today newspaper,... More

This was our second stay at this property on our way through St. Louis. It's location between Forest Park and the Hill and near the botanical garden and I-44 is convenient. We don't pay much attention to the age or architecture of a hotel as long as it is well-maintained, clean and comfortable. This Holiday Inn was all three. WiFi... More

60s vintage architecture with a high rise room section connected to a one story entrance/restaurant/bar area. Results in a long hike (some uphill) to get from the hotel entrance to the elevators. (This same outdated design is repeated in modern Hilton Garden Inns, to the discomfort of guests with luggage.) Room was average in condition, furnishings and cleanliness. A/C had... More

I stayed here last week and hope to not have to return. It was 90 degree's outdoors and the room would not cool below 71 degrees; uncomfortable. The door wouldn't stayed closed unless you turned the deadbolt, which is impossible if you leave the room. The interior hallway was very hot and the carpeting is wrinkled and torn and the... More

My review is colored by an exceptionally terrifying event experienced by our family. We were awakened by a domestic dispute outside our room after midnight. The foul language and yelling was very disturbing and wasn't responded to in a very quick manner. Following the incident it was difficult to get back to sleep.
