The name "Napoleon's Retreat" conjures up images of half-frozen, defeated soldiers trudging home in humiliation and panic. While the name is a little strange (probably unintentionally), this b&b is a charming respite in a big city.
We stayed in the Lafayette Room at Napoleon's Retreat, which is both spacious and comfortable. The bathroom is small with only a stand-up shower, but one cannot expect large spaces in an old Victorian such as this. Wifi is provided. Stacy is a friendly and accommodating host, and cooked up a sumptuous breakfast of blueberry pancakes and fresh fruit. The rates are also quite reasonable; you would probably end up paying considerably more for similar quality at a major chain hotel in central St. Louis.
