We booked the bed and breakfast as our second stopover on our Route 66 road trip, what an amazing place to stay. We had the room on the top floor which was massive, it was more like a suite in a top class hotel. Stacey was so kind and helpful, she recommended local places to eat, cooked us a lovely... More

My mom and I have been traveling for many years and always stay in B&Bs. Stacy is one of the most gracious hostesses that we have come across! The grounds, the inn itself and rooms are spotless. She has it filled with tasteful decorations. The breakfast is amazing and there is enough food to hold you until dinner. There are... More

We are already planning our next visit to St. Louis and will for sure stay here again! Thoroughly enjoyed our room, breakfast, and hospitality. Very convenient location. Stacy was very friendly and welcoming and gave great recommendations for dinner and drinks.

We stayed in the Napoleon Suite July 2016. This place really saved us as we didn't book a reservation until the day we arrived. After searching desperately for a room we remembered a previous recommendation of this B&B. She was more than accommodating to our same day booking and late arrival and had some great recommendations for late night snacks.... More

My husband and I stayed at Napoleon's Retreat for our 5 year anniversary. We found it online and read the amazing reviews and knew that we just had to stay here. We chose to stay in the Burgundy room. It was the perfect amount of space for us. The room was very clean. Napoleon's Retreat is located in Lafayette Square... More

We booked our stay here because of the excellent ratings and were not disappointed. it is a superb Victorian house within the attractive and safe Lafayette Park area. We stayed in the Burgundy room which is beautifully furnished in antique style and very comfortable. Stacy was most welcoming and provided a delicious breakfast.

At the suggestion of our son who lives in the Lafayette Square area, my husband and I decided to stay at a local bed and breakfast on a recent weekend visit. We searched the internet and felt that Napoleon's Retreat met our needs in terms of price and location. We received a warm welcome from Stacy late on Friday afternoon... More

Stacey is a truly wonderful hostess, with spot- on tips for exploration, and every imaginable treat to make our stay a delight. Our delicious breakfasts kept us walking all day to see the sites of St. Louis, and then explore the local breweries, restaurants and ice cream palace around the corner. Lafayette Park is next door. We are looking forward... More

On our way from DC to Denver on a road trip, we stopped off in Saint Louis and stayed at Napoleon's Retreat. Stacy was super accommodating, as we came in pretty late that night, and the room was appointed nicely. Breakfast was fantastic, she was able to work around my numerous food sensitivities, and we had a great time chatting... More

My new Fiancee and I LOVED this place. It was a very good walking distance from a very nice bar and pizza place. The interior was delightful and the owners are wonderful! The puppies were terrific! We both work with animals, so having the dogs there was great! Will stay here again!
