This Hampton is located next to Forest Park in St. Louis, which is where you'll find the St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Art Museum and the Missouri History Museum--all of which have free admission. The park itself is also worth driving around. The hotel is about 10-15 minutes from downtown St. Louis where the Arch, Eugene Fields House and Toy Museum, Busch Factory Tour, and Busch Stadium are located. This Hampton also has plenty of free self parking (the downtown Hampton charges for parking). It seemed a popular hotel for families with young children, and breakfast every morning was a crowded affair. I was there four nights, and all but one morning I had trouble finding a table to sit at, and various items ran out, though the staff seemed to be dilligently trying to restock as quickly as possible. They also opened a conference room for additional seating when it wasn't booked. The desk staff was very friendly and efficient. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and I slept very well. I would stay here again the next time I'm in St. Louis.
