My son and I stayed here for two nights over spring break. I chose this hotel based on all of the excellent reviews here on tripadvisor. My criteria for choosing a hotel are 1) cleanliness and 2) cost. This Hampton Inn met both and did so very well.
It is about a 15 minute drive from downtown, but we had our car so that wasn't an issue for us.
The staff is unbelievably friendly, courteous, and helpful. I am so grateful to the front desk attendant who suggested that I purchase our tickets to the Arch beforehand. She told us, and I was not aware of this, that tickets can sell out. I purchased the tickets from the office center right there in the hotel, and was so glad I did. When we got to the Arch the next morning, by about 9:30 am, there was a short line. By the time we left, at about 11:30 am, the line wrapped around the park.
The breakfast food was your typical "Inn" type food. It wasn't great, but I really appreciate having breakfast included in the price of the room. It saves you time and money.
Our room was extremely clean and comfortable.
I will say this. Our room only had a shower, no tub, which is not a problem. We prefer showers; however, the drain in the middle of the shower dipped down pretty drastically. With the slippery, soapy water you could easily lose your balance and fall. There was a grab bar on the wall, which was helpful, but I would be worried about older guests or guests who do not have good balance falling. Having said that that would not affect my decision to stay here. I would most definitely choose to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone planning on staying in or near Saint Louis.
