“Beautiful architecture! Great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

This is an absolutely fabulous update of a building on the national historic register. Every detail is gorgeous. My new husband and I stayed here on our wedding night and loved it. The room was clean and attractive, the bed was more comfortable than our bed at home, and the service was outstanding. We ordered room service for dinner and breakfast, delcious food, polite and prompt service.

This hotel is beautiful and quaint. The interior design is very well done, adding new and updated accents while keeping it's original charm. Employees are accommodating and friendly. Rooms are clean and housekeeping is thorough. Easy walking distance to Busch Stadium and the Arch. The only disappointment is since it's in the middle of downtown there's not much opportunity to get a view from your room. However, I think some of their suites may offer this. The continental breakfast and free cookies were a great bonus. Who doesn't love free cookies?!

Very Very Nice! The hotel was busy and hotel decor is fabulous. Very much updated but kept the details of when the hotel was first built decades ago. Probably a lot like it was when the hotel first opened a long time ago. Life in St Louis is buzzing! Safe area and walking distance to a lot in downtown.

We love the Magnolia family of hotels. Private, small, extraordinary. Do yourself a favor and visit Christopher in the bar. He will make you a fantastic cocktail. When you check-in make sure you're not staying on the third floor. The view of the brick wall and HVAC equipment is dreadful.

Room Tip: Say no to the third floor :)

The Magnolia is located just off Washington, so nightlife is right around the corner.
Very nicely appointed. Breakfast was just right. Valet parking was available, but a parking garage is a very short block away, and reasonable.

I travel extensively (domestic & international), and this is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at. The hotel, itself, is lovely ... beautiful architectural detail and decor ... clean ... comfortable ... the ammenities (breakfast and "happy hour") were great ... and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Just a short walk from lots of great eateries and upscale bars, the arch, and the City Museum. This is my new "go to" hotel when I'm in St. Louis !!

Well, what to say on this one... How about, "you're our new go-to-guest". Yeah, we like that!

Thanks so much. Our staff will love this and hope your spring break with your daughter was everything you imagined. Glad we could share in it.

See you next time.

Travel safe.

I've stayed at this hotel the last 2 times coming to the city and could not be happier with my choice. The location is fantastic, the staff was extremely courteous and helpful, and the room was immaculately clean with a very nice view. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to visit!!!
