During our second trip to St louis, we decided to "hotel hop" and stayed at the Fleur De Lys (our second stay), The Four Seasons hotel and the Westin (both firsts), and 2 different Hilton properties (we are long-time Hilton Honors members). I won't make this long. Believe me when I say that this place CAN'T BE BEAT for the combination of its charm (the attention and the warmth of the people is unbeatable, and frankly you don't get that anywhere else), the ambiance (the house is incredibly beautiful and well-appointed (the brandy in the parlor and the Jacuzzi spa are particularly sweet), and the romantic charm that's particular to most B&Bs. This place has it all! Loved the homemade cookies!!!!! Love how the home feels like its your own! Love the warm smile from Jan and the attention from Vicky. I could go on and on, but I'd be remiss if I did not mention 2 more things. 1) The coordination during check-in and the special care we got was tremendous (we called from the airport b/c our flight had arrived early and I wanted to get some work done (VPN from my laptop using the free wi-fi).... NO PROBLEM. Vicky hooked it up so we could let ourselves in with NO ONE at the house, then later came up to greet us with our room key. OUTSTANDING. 2) I left behind a pair of swim trunks and just got them in the mail 2 days ago since we could not find the time to stop by and pick them up. I also had to print my timesheet. No problem! For us, it was truly an unbeatable experience (even as nice as the Four Seasons was)! 2 more things: I also loved the fact that they have nice TVs in the rooms without making it the centerpiece (the beds are the real draw)! The fridge upstairs and the snacks is also a wonderful touch. Very CLASSY all the way around. A real gem.
