We spent about a week and absolutely loved this hotel. Very friendly and clean. Also very quiet. Their restaurant had such great food. The wings and pizza are must haves and the staff was very friendly! No complaints whatsoever!

I have stayed in this hotel before. I loved it the first time. However, this stay we got the “deluxe” king. There is nothing deluxe about it! It is the smallest room I have ever been in. You can barely turn around. The closet is almost inaccessible. AC is very subpar The “view” is a hole between buildings. And a lovely rooftop cluttered with industrial equipment and debris. Manage was completely oblivious and unresponsive to my request to move.

Thank you for taking the time to share comments during your stay, pkshin. I do apologize for your disappointment with the room you reserved. As a historical building having gone through many renovations since 1925, we offer several guest room and guest suite floor plans, which allow guests to reserve which floor plan best fits their individual needs. I also apologize for the neighboring buildings that have more stories than we do; I wish we had more control over this aspect. When the hotel is fully committed, we unfortunately are unable to move guests from one room to another. Thank you again for your feedback, we look forward to hosting you again if and when your travels find you in downtown St. Louis.

Stay Report - 7/27 - 7/28 Location: Very well located for downtown St. Louis.  The hotel is on 8th Street a block south of Washington.  This puts you a block from the convention center and a few blocks from America's Center (the former TWA Dome).  You're a half mile to Busch Stadium, two blocks from a Metrolink Station and near a number of restaurants.  STL is about a $35 Uber ride away.   Hotel: A gorgeous historic building from the 1930s and in great shape too.  The hotel is actually smaller than you'd expect due to the narrowness of the building.  The lobby has a very small check in area and and a pretty, though small bars and restaurants.  Do note that the three elevators are also (you guessed it) small and it means some long waits and also by the time they get to you on the lower floors you might not be able to get in. Check In: My brother and I arrived at 10:30 PM and we were told that they were oversold on two queen suites (which I'd booked) so we were being upgraded to one of their penthouse suites but that it had only one bed.  Thankfully we've been in this situation before but I'm glad I wasn't traveling with a friend.  Room: In a word, incredible.  I'm a classic movie buff so all the Cary Grant memorbillia as well as the classic style of the room.  There was a small fridge and coffee station in part of the living room which was a really comfortable room to hang out in (and had a great couch).  The bedroom was nice and there were no noise issues.  The only bad part is the older nature meant it was hard to find an outlet. The bathroom was a bit of a letdown though but it was nice having a separate shower and bath. Breakfast: A huge disappointment.  The hotel setup a really bad buffet in their small bar.  They had potatoes, scrambled eggs, ham, sausage and toast.  Service was not good and the room is far too small.  If I was here again I'd absolutely skip it. Overall this hotel works for when you need to be downtown and I like the historic nature and the rooms.  I just won't eat breakfast again.

This is a lovely boutique hotel in a historic building dating back to the 1920’s. Very quiet and within walking distance to a few unique restaurants. If you prefer a shorter walk to the ballpark, perhaps choose a different hotel. For meals, you can order from a menu and the charge is $15 for breakfast and $26 for dinner. We found cheaper food elsewhere. A free continental breakfast would have made our stay here more convenient & economical. The room was very clean when we arrived and chocolates on the pillows a nice touch. However, housekeeping did not enter our room for our entire stay as beds weren’t made, towels and coffee etc not replenished — I would expect more from a hotel of this class as far as that is concerned.

enJOYthejourney1115, Thank you for choosing Magnolia Hotel St. Louis for your recent travels and taking the time to share your feedback. We're delighted that you enjoyed the historic charm and convenient location. We strive to provide the highest level of hospitality and quality fresh food to our guests. I hope you let us know about the Housekeeping issue while you were here so we had the opportunity to rectify your concerns. Perhaps you signed up for the Make a Green Choice option which declines Housekeeping service. I can assure you we do offer full Housekeeping services as a standard. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again on a future visit to St. Louis!

We received a warm welcome when checking in and was on our way to our room shortly after. The suite was very spacious and featured a comfy sitting area. There wasn’t much of a view but we didn’t spend a ton of time in the room. The bathroom was a good size but the best part of the room was the bed. Oh my the bed was incredibly comfortable! It was almost like sleeping on a cloud bed and it was nice to have a bottom sheet that actually confirmed to the mattress instead of it being a top sheet that never stays tucked in (like most other hotels do). We had s great overall experience and would most certainly stay here again!
