The Cheshire hotel captivates guests with its unique blend of historical charm and quirky, British-themed decor, offering a cozy atmosphere. While the hotel's location garners praise for its convenience to various attractions, opinions on value are mixed due to unexpected costs and some doubts about return visits. Rooms are noted for their thematic flair but have had some cleanliness and noise complaints. Amenities like the comfortable beds and hearty breakfast are popular, but maintenance issues persist. Service is generally viewed positively, although occasional inconsistencies are mentioned.

What a great experience. We were passing thru St. Louis eastbound and I wanted a romantic break on the road trip to see the St. Louis Art Museum. This hotel was special from the minute we drove up, wood smoke and snug Christmas everywhere in the hotel. The staff was great, the atmosphere very Christmas like and the smell of the fireplaces always there to warm and create the spirit. Great room, comfy bed and a remarkably great breakfast, more than enough to satisfy. You could take your plate and eat quietly beside the fireplace in the great room. Just sorry we ere so on the go that we did not go to the pub, right inside the front door. Just sorry we missed the Christmas entertainment which was diverse and put on several nights of the holiday season. We will come back and upgrade our room, love the room themes.

This was my second time at this hotel. It has been a few years since visiting The Cheshire the first time. I wanted to share this classic hotel with my grand daughters. First of all, I could not EVER get anyone to answer the phone to take a reservation. I eventually got a reservation from an outside source. Upon arriving, the very kind receptionist, struggled to tell us when breakfast was open the next morning..ok, that wasn't to bad. Next, when we got to our room, the bathroom light was a mystery. There was no light switch, the light seemed to be controlled by opening and closing the door...but not consistently. Again, at no time would anyone answer the phone. Later, at bedtime, I hear my granddaughter scream. There was a very large roach/water bug above the mirror. Again I call to the front desk..no answer. I go into the hall and a man with a work tag said he was the security guard. He was kind and friendly and tall. He located some bug spray, sprayed the bug, smashed it and then fully sprayed the room.
The next morning at breakfast I looked forward to using the lovely outdoor patio. It was open, but seriously wet ( and not well maintained). A staff member could have wiped down the furniture to allow for guests to use this area. Since no one maintained the area, all guests were crowded in the lobby/lounge area.
I was disappointed with the weekend for myself and my grandchildren. We made the best of it. I hope management puts in the time and effort to keep this jewel open and thriving.

There is a lot of charm to the Cheshire, but it is not the kind of hotel where you can get a great night's sleep. We had a themed suite, and the mattress was uncomfortably soft. The pillows were unsubstantial, on par with low cost pillows you find at most hotels.

The fan in the room sounded like a jet engine, and so to keep from getting woken up repeatedly, we turned it off (the setting to keep the fan on all night didn't work). That was when we began to notice just how thin the walls are. Every time a person spoke, a faucet turned on, or a toilet flushed, you could hear it through the walls. We paid for a romance package, which came with a late 1pm check out, but at 11am one of the neighbors started blasting music, and so we left early.

We did enjoy our time at the tavern. The food was good, and bartender Chris was helpful.

We tried to give the Cheshire the benefit of the doubt. We had a very affordable rate on a Saturday evening. Check in was fine and we were told they had two restaurants for guests at our arrival. We went down to the restaurant in the hotel at 4pm to get an appetizer before dinner. They had menus on the tables. As we ordered we were told the kitchen did not open until 5pm. This was disappointing as there was no signs stating it was not in full operation.

Our room was clean but we only had two bath towels and two hand towels in the bathroom- no wash clothes or bath mat (the floor was cold tile). We did ask for extra towels when we arrived in for the evening and were told that they didn’t have any. The front desk attendant said we could call back after 11:30pm to see if some were available. Around 11:30pm the fire alarm went off and continued to go off for the next hour. We contacted the front desk and they said there was no fire and as soon as the fire department arrived the alarm would go off. It took about 45 minutes for this to happen.

Our room was extra warm and we turned the air down and it never changed all evening. It was still very warm the next morning. The mattress on the bed needs to be replaced. It was a king bed and was much lower in the middle. The pillows on the bed were not full size they had four couch sized pillows- square pillows instead . There were no other pillows or even a blanket in the room. I was glad we did not run out of toilet paper. We arrived to less than half a roll and left with it almost gone. There was no extra paper available. The room was noisy if anyone walked outside the door.
Luckily the hotel was not fully occupied. The entire hotel was well decorated but the floors were very dirty. A little cleaning and shine would make a huge difference. Our room had one lamp that was not functioning and one of the wall decorations was blank and seemed to have been torn off the wall. (Picture attached)

We went to the breakfast offered in the morning and were glad they had coffee, cold cereal, packaged breads, fruit and juice available. It was appreciated that they still offered this during the pandemic.

The hotel has lots of charm and could be so beautiful if a little more cleaning in the public spaces would happen. We did appreciate the free parking that was available.

We wanted something different for our stay in Saint Louis other than the usual cookie cutter hotel you find across the country. We took a chance on The Cheshire and were happy we did. It is definitely not a run of the mill hotel.

It was as if we stepped back into Elizabethan England with the architecture, furniture and paintings! It was quite charming actually. All the rooms are named after an English author and our room was the Daniel DeFoe up on the 4th floor.

My complaints:

The elevators especially could be cleaned and spruced up.

Our room was in decent enough shape... It was a king room with a large empty space next to the bed which obviously at one time had a couch in it.. There was no couch which was disappointing since, there was only a chair to sit on. I inquired about the large space missing a couch and was told I was mistaken.

The noise from the pool was loud and annoying especially as it went on way past dark and I was told that at sunset it would cease.

The $10 parking charge is silly since there is no enforcement and no ticket given to prove you paid the $10. We initially found space on the street to park in, but as the evening wore on we moved the car to the parking lot and never paid the $10

The breakfast was adequate in the morning although I found the staff serving it to be a bit surly

Despite the above... I'd stay there again.. The location is great and it t was fun to stay at a place that has some charm and eccentricity even with all its faults.

I have been looking forward to staying at this hotel for a long time. When you initially walk in it's pretty impressive. The English atmosphere, the furniture, and the Ambiance is incredible. However once we got to our room on the second floor I was quickly disappointed. The furniture is old and worn but the worst part is the bathroom was nasty. Somebody had spilled something all over the front of the vanity and the bathroom door and nobody had noticed to clean it up. It was something white so I don't even want to know what it was. I've convinced myself it was conditioner. There was a very thick layer of black dust/dirt on the door.. Also in the room there's a broken picture hanging on the wall or at least a place where a picture used to be. You would think for $150 a night they would be able to do better upkeep on the rooms. The staff is great but I wouldn't pay the price to stay again.

I’m so surprised at the good reviews this place received. I feel like I have been catfished. The website had photos of a lovely and charming inn. They even advertise for weddings and romantic weekends. It looked perfect! When we arrived I was disgusted. The dilapidated sign next to the giant Amoco gas sign welcome you in to a roadside dump. The entire inn smells musty like grandma’s neglected lake home. We parked on-site which costs $10, but they never asked for license plate, car type, etc. so we probably could have parked for free. The entire place is in need of a refurbishing. The lobby, the rooms, the pool, etc. Any charm this place once had is now just tacky and dusty. I was so embarrassed to have booked this hotel for my family. Luckily we only had to stay for one night. Hampton Inn or Comfort Inn is less expensive, cleaner, and more comfortable.

The hotel was perfectly placed for our activities, as we were in town for a wedding at the Art Museum - also a short walk to the zoo. Staff was friendly, and the free water, given the heat and humidity, was a nice touch. The space itself was very nice, although the parking garage was very strange, with columns in weird places creating a navigational challenge.

We stayed in the "A Passage to India" suite, which was very pleasant, with a door right out to the pool patio area. Despite being right there, noise didn't come into the room from the pool area at all. The only downside to the room itself, which cost this review a star, was that the AC broke, and didn't get fixed during our 3 might stay. Quite a bummer. We also flew in a bit later, and couldn't get food at 9:45 PM anywhere at or near the hotel, although the bar was very atmospheric.

This was our my fourth stay at The Cheshire. The hotel smelled nice, like a historic inn made of old wood with a burning fireplace. I didn't remember that the hotel charged $10 to park, which seems odd for a suburban hotel. Overall I noticed the hotel was dirtier and more worn than before. Garage area in front of elevator was very dirty. Bathroom was dirty, with prior occupants' hair everywhere (tub, floor, ceiling), paint chipped in several places, corners had not been cleaned in a while. The breakfast was pretty decent, Khaldi coffee, fresh fruit (apples, bananas, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, pineapple, honeydew and cantaloupe), sausages in peppers and onions, scrambled eggs, mass-produced pastries and bottled juices. The highlight of The Cheshire is its people, everyone is helpful and friendly. In summary, not as good as before but we'll be back.

My husband and I decided on a weekend getaway and we wanted to be near Forest Park with easy access to downtown St. Louis. The Cheshire did not disappoint! From the moment we walked in Roxie made us feel welcome and was full of knowledge about what the hotel was all about and all they had to offer. Thanks to her suggestion, we were able to have a nice 1st night’s dinner at The Boundary, just across the parking lot. Afterward, we wondered through the hotel checking out all the awesome details that made this Anglophile couple feel like we’d crossed the pond instead of the parking lot! So many neat things to explore. The room was large and we felt like Royalty in our King sized bed. Plenty of pillows & thick curtains to completely block out the early morning sun. Lovely apportioned bathroom w/ a really nice shower head helped us to begin our day anew & refreshed! The Fox and Hounds pub/restaurant had live jazz and great drinks!
Each room has a theme or is named after a famous British author. Can’t wait to see which room we get next!
