“Great hotel with a bit of nostalgia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights. We love Hamptons and was glad this one was so close to relatives in St. Louis. Besides the usual friendly staff ( they recommended the Highlander Bar and Grill next door and saved us from having to drive to dinner after driving all day...great recommendation) and cookies and great breakfast choices, the walls were covered with enlarged photos of an amusement park that was on the Hampton site. My husband enjoyed taking a look back to his childhood and telling me about the various rides he went on as a child. What fun for him. We have found our base stop for subsequent trips to St. Louis. Great hotel, great staff and amenities...who could ask or more??

Dear Exacto;

Thank you for staying with us and leaving your comments on Trip Advisor. We appreciate the fact that you have found a new "home away from home" when in the St. Louis area. It is fun to hear of your husband enjoying the artwork and that it brought back great memories. We are actually sitting on the old parking area of the St. Louis Arena; right near the Highlands Amusement park location. Happy New Year!

We took a quick weekend trip to St. Louis for shopping and eating and stayed at the Hampton Inn Forest Park.

It was an enjoyable stay with courteous staff and a convenient breakfast.

Free parking is also a big plus.

Fantastic hotel at a reasonable price. We have found a new hotel for our stays in St. Louis. Great location near the park and Washington University. Right off the expressway and easy to find. We could even see the arch from our room. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Room Tip: Pay the extra few dollars for the studio suite.

We stayed at this Hampton Inn recently to attend the Paul McCartney concert at the Scottrade Center. Being a long time HHonors member, we have stayed in many Hampton Inns, and this one was up to the typical 'excellent' Hampton Inns standard. Clean and comfortable rooms. Attentive staff. A great complimentary breakfast (the kids love the 'make your own waffles!'). Free Wifi. This particular Hampton Inn is very well located just outside of downtown St. Louis, but right near the zoo and children's Science Center, as well as easy access to the interstate.

Everything was good except for the housekeeping. One day they did not provide enough toilet paper and tissue. On the next day they did not clean the room at all. Everything else was good. We checked in late around 10 pm. Checkin was fast and smooth. They provide hot breakfast from 6 to 10 AM.

Dear MillionBucks;

Thank you for staying with us and providing your comments in Trip Advisor. We do take pride in our property and are known for cleanliness and friendliness. We do hope that you will stay with us again and give us another chance. I am also hoping that you informed our Front Desk of the problems that you experienced. They can always call our houseman to take care of these things immediately (bring extra tissue, etc. up). I apologize for the room not being cleaned. Our Hampton Inn always has the 100% guarantee in force and stand firmly behind it. If you would like to email me at varney@raymondteam.com with your mailing address, I would be happy to send you a VIP pass. That way, if you return to the area, you will have a free night stay with us. Thank you!

What else can I say? Our stay was awesome. We had been traveling through from Colorado and had stayed at several other places along our trip. Best experience yet! Breakfast was very high quality, parking was ample and we felt very safe at this location. Beds were comfortable and it was very nice to have this experience compared to the other hotels we had to stay at to get here. Thank you to the excelent staff!

The check in was super fast and the staff made it very pleasant. I was really impressed how clean the rooms were and that they washed the duvet covers for every guest. After a 12 hour day of driving we didn’t use the pool or the fitness room, but they both looked super nice. We did just chill in front of the TV and were pleased with the wide selection of channels available. Located just off I-64 makes this Hotel very convenient, yet we heard no road noise during the night. Breakfast the next morning was awesome. All of the staff was super friendly and very professional. This is the Hotel to stay at when you are in St. Louis.
