“Great Hotel for Seeing St. Louis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

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.

Dear ChrissyHny;

Thank you for your nice review. I couldn't have said it any better!

We are located in an Urban District, on the outskirts of St. Louis, and have the luxury of complimentary parking. Most Downtown properties do charge a nightly parking fee.

Yes, we are a family friendly hotel, and fill quickly for Spring Break, Summer vacations, etc. As you mentioned, Breakfast is always a popular hot spot!! We do our best to keep the area stocked and clean.

Please come back and enjoy our Fresh & Clean bedding. We Love Having You Here!

Hampton had extremely helpful/friendly staff from the front desk to the maids!! Great location as far as getting to St. Louis sights, w/ a lot of helpful info. from staff. Really great complimentary breakfast. Nice clean rooms. We enjoyed our stay here in a suite. Only negative was that the pool was a bit small and often crowded.

Room Tip: The suites are nice and offer some extra room, microwave, small fridge, etc. We had a great view of...

Was visiting for a wedding and so lots of people in town and staying here. The hotel did not miss a beat. Everything was great! The staff was wonderful and very very accommodating. The rooms were perfect. The breakfast was nice and the common areas were wonderful. We have a big family so togetherness is a priority and they made it one too!

The most friendly Hampton Inn we have stayed at! The rooms were clean, bed was like home, pool was clean and warm for our grandkids, breakfast was very tasty with a great variety, and the staff in all departments were friendly. Great location and free parking. This was the best place we have stayed in St. Louis over the past 10 years.

This Hampton Inn is one of the best, if not the best, we've stayed at. It is exceptionally well managed with trained, pleasant staff from front desk to breakfast room. Though the property is six years old, it looks like it opened yesterday. Common areas are spotless and well maintained and our room the same. The location is unbeatable for visits to St. Louis. It is across the highway from Forest Park with the marvelous zoo and art museum, etc, a bit over five minutes to superb restaurants on The Hill, a few minutes to Clayton business district and many other parts of the city offering great shopping, hospitals, etc. And, it is a good value.

Room Tip: We liked our room which was a double queen suite at the end of the hall. Excellent natural light wit...

If you are looking for spacious rooms and great service, this is the place. (We stayed in a suite, that had a small kitchen.) We stayed in St. Louis for four days in late December, just before Christmas. Originally we had planned to divide our time between two hotels. But we were so impressed by the comfort and the service of the Hampton Inn that we decided to stay there for the entire time. On our first day we checked into a room that was a bit close to the highway, and asked whether they could make an adjustment, and this they did quickly and politely.

But, actually, the first room was not at all bad. It afforded a good view of the Arch and Forest Park. The corner of Forest Park visible from our room was Aviation Field, a large area now used for baseball and softball. But many years ago this was an airport, one that Lindbergh used when delivering mail.

One lady with a lovely smile and pleasant manner was especially helpful. We wish that we could recall her name, for we would like to commend her to you.

Also, if you know anything about pizza in St. Louis, this Hampton Inn is within easy walking distance of an Imo's, and their pizza does not disappoint!

Dear Angela H;

Wow - great to hear you changed plans in the middle of your trip and continued to stay with us. I think I remember you! It was a pleasure to have you with us. We are in a very historic area and it is nice to read about Lindbergh and Aviation Field - something not all of us are aware of. And, yes, I have to agree with you - Imo's has amazing pizza. Just keep in mind that it is very thin St. Louis style crust and they use provel instead of mozzeralla cheese. Glad your found it to your liking. We Love Having You Here and await your return.
