“Great location near Forest Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

A wonderfully (and tastefully) themed hotel paying tribute to great authors and works of literature. We stayed in The Canterbury Tales room, a standard deluxe double queen. Fantastic comfortable beds, wonderful toiletries and fabulous access to delish teas at any hour of the day. I traveled with my two teen sons who enjoyed the great breakfasts with nice array of fresh fruits, cheeses and one hot entree. I chose to eat the magnificent granola every single day! Tea, juice, coffee, milk and several yogurts were available too.

The rooms were very comfortable and pleasant. The walls are pretty thin; but we were annoyed by some dudes partying next door just one evening. I turned on the AC fan to run continuously and that totally drowned out their noise and I was able to sleep very well (and I'm a light sleeper!).

We walked just a few steps away to the gorgeous 90 year old cinema called the Hi-Pointe and you could easily walk to the Zoo. I adored all the wonderful treasures that Forest Park offered and my two sons grudgingly followed behind me wherever I took them.

All was great. What really made the stay besides the decor and the writerly room names and the comfy beds, were the staff. From the Bar and the bartender, to the front desk to the valet for parking, everyone was cheerful, helpful, courteous, and effective while appearing to absolutely enjoy themselves serving us and making us happy with our stay. I couldn't ask for more for me and my family. My last stay at this hotel was when I was twelve years old and now at 59.99999 years of age I am back. Thanks so much.

I was that person who had never been to the area, I was the person who came to Trip Advisor for guidance in finding a place to stay during our mid-week getaway to St. Louis!!!

Needless to say this place far exceeded any expectation I had. From the moment I called to make reservations and actually spoke to a real person who did indeed work at this location!! They were very helpful over the phone answered every question I had concerning traveling with our two small dogs. Along with numerous other questions.

So the good stuff! First impression was a little nervousness just because they are in the midst of remodeling a separate building from this one. Was unsure of what we would find inside. Again expectations exceeded. Greeted first off by the valet who was very helpful. Checked-in with ease. Seriously it was a breeze. Happy to have us and happy to have our dogs accompany us. Treats for the dogs upon arrival as well as many other surprises to welcome them. Pet bed, food bowls, coupon for food, bag of treats, and a friendly pet!

Our room was comfy and charming. Clean and modern. Can't really say enough. Curious about the themed suites as they appear amazing going to have to save that for our return visit I'm sure is to occur. Can't say enough.

Breakfast and the commons area are fabulous. This is not your typical spread for breakfast. Fresh fruit, oatmeal, hot ham and cheese crossaiant, that were to die for and many other options. All kept filled and fresh by a staff that was friendly and hard working. On our last morning the GM was the one out in the commons area greeting the guest and making sure the area was full. All with a smile on his face. Unlike many other GM's I have seen over the years who have no time for anything other that being behind a desk. Huge appluse to this gentleman and his rockstar staff. You all have a great thing going for you. Look forward to visiting again in the near future.

This hotel is really wonderful! I stayed at the Cheshire twice before it was renovated and I was very pleased with the rooms and with the service. I have stayed twice since the renovation. This is a rare instance of a hotel retaining its charm while upgrading its facilities.Being at the Cheshire is a real treat -- and a high point of any visit to St. Louis. The front desk staff could not be more helpful. They remembered that my husband is a) allergic to down and b) is diabetic and needs to refrigerate his insulin. They set up our room ahead of time with foam pillows and made sure there was a refrigerator available. When we had a tussle with the new alarm clock -- Question: how many college professors does it take to program a hi-tech alarm? Answer: more than two. Neither of us could do it! -- a staff member immediately appeared and got the thing working for us. We are already looking forward to our next stay.

Room Tip: I have never stayed in a bad room at the Cheshire. Every one has been great -- and I love the litera...

We were greeted at the desk by Billy who was extremely helpful and cheery. After we got to our room we tried to get the ac running to no avail. We went back down to see what might be done. The chief engineer, Don McBush, happened to be right there and he was very quick to offer to come up to our room and check it out even though he was about to be off duty. He followed us up, took a look and got it up and running in no time!

The remodeling they have done is gorgeous. There was even a group of guitars playing in the lounge area the evening we were there. I would not hesitate to stay at this lovely hotel again!

My husband, 18 month old daughter & I stayed at the Cheshire on an impromptu trip through St. Louis and had a great time! The hotel had a special rate (better than the major discount sites) that was offered only via the internet & because we stayed 2 nights we were upgraded! The decor and accommodations were all very nice ~ updated rooms, linens & bathrooms! We enjoyed the outdoor terrace in the mornings for the continental breakfast (better than most I've had) and in the afternoons for a cocktail & appetizer from Fox & Hounds the onsite tavern. All the staff were friendly and helpful, but the housekeeping staff and tavern servers were over the top nice! We also really liked that we were within walking distance to Forest Park and the Zoo. There were also great restaurants a very short drive from the hotel, like "The Hill", known for great Italian. Easy to find, on/off the highways easy to get to other parts of town. The only drawbacks are that there were some areas of our rooms that were not super clean (the wood bedframe & carpet in the closet area) and the front desk staff was nice, but not as informative as I thought they should be. They didn't tell us about the underground parking, that there was music planned for the tavern or the bicycles they have that you can use free of charge. They did answer any questions we had, but didn't offer info other than the standard check-in/out times, breakfast times etc. Overall we had a great time & look forward to coming back in the future!

Room Tip: Request a room away from the main road - there seemed to be a lot of traffic at all hours of the day...
