“Old-school style and VERY comfortable rooms”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

This my third time at 7 Gables and I enjoy it more each time! The king room my daughter and I shared was huge. The bed was perfect and there was a couch and reading area. This bathroom wasn't as updated as the room I had last time. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. There is a lovely courtyard that I would have enjoyed if it wasnt 104* outside. It's only minutes to West End, The Loop and Forest Park. Head south and you're minutes away from a huge shopping mall. I think of Clayton as a swanky neighborhood (lots of upscale restaurants close to the County Square Courthouse) but it's clean and charming. Seven Gables is excellent!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard if you want a nicer view.

I LOVE this place. I have stayed here once before and will be staying again 8/8/12. I will be bringing my wife and mother-in-law with me so they can experience how great this place is. Very nice, very cozy. I used to always stay at the Omni when I would come to St. Louis for business but I am grateful my friend recommended this place to me. LOVE IT.

I had tickets to go to two Cardinal games and spent the night between at the Seven Gables Inn. It was very easy to hop on the Metro and get to Busch Stadium and back. Very friendly staff and did many little things to make my stay enjoyable. This place has a little more pizzaz than your typical chain hotel. The room was excellent. I would definitely consider staying here again.

Room Tip: the corner suites are huge.

Charming and intimate bridal shower venue. I booked the hotel for my son's Rehearsal Dinner and I liked it so much I decided to host my future daughter-in-law's Bridal Shower there as well.

It was perfect!!! We had both Gables I and GablesII banquet rooms for the shower. Everyone commented on how lovely the rooms were. The food was delicious and the service excellent.

So happy to have booked the hotel for the upcoming wedding event and in the future I will use Seven Gables Inn for any event that I may host. I would highly recomment Seven Gables to anyone for their parties.

The staff, food and service are first rate especially General Manager, Stacey Wallace.

Thank you for posting such a kind review.

We are so very pleased that we could be apart of such an important event in your life and that you are happy with everything from the service to the food to the venue.

We take such great pride in our jobs and work so well together as a team to ensure our guests expectations are exceeded and its always nice to work with such easy going and fun clients. Seven Gables is not a large venue so if you are looking for quaint and intimate and not your typcial ballroom this is definitely the place to come.

It is only with our guests input and feedback that we can continue to grow and ensure we are providing the best possible customer service.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with you from start to finish and would love to have you back for any future events you might have!

This Historic Inn is just that HISTORIC I am one that DO NOT LIKE ELEVATOR'S and didn't mind the steps the staff was very friendly and helpful each one greeted you with a bright smile and cheerful hello. The rooms were very clean & neat and fresh, the continental breakfast was lovely everything they stated about the Inn on the internet was true.I would STRONGLY recommend it to anyone that likes HISTORIC places.Parking was not an issue they do offer VALET and have another parking lot. BUT OVER ALL SEVEN GABLES INN is a very relaxing & quite Inn just to get away.....LOVE IT.

This place needs to be renovated. The carpet in the room is stained and dirty. The staff is very pleasant. I inquired prior to making my reservation if the linens and towels were scent free, i am sensitive to scented linens and towels, i was told yes. They are not and i find out the hard way. Hotels, get it together and know your product! It's not rocket science. Be aware, no elevator, so plan on carrying your luggage up the spiral steps. Continental breakfast? Is that what they called it?

Thank you for posting your review.

We appreciate your feedback and address all concerns immediately.

We will definitely check with our vendor who provides us with our laundry supplies as we do not order any scented items due to the wide variety of guests we have and possible allergies our guests might have.

We are also aware of the carpet conditions and we do have them cleaned quarterly by a professional carpet company, but we will pass your feedback along to the appropriate department.

Seven Gables Inn is listed on the National Historic Registery and to keep the charm and history of the hotel we do not offer an elevator but we do have valet/bellman here to assist all guests with the luggage to the upper floors or we also offer guest rooms on the first floor.

Our continental breakfast is a complimentary breakfast which most hotels do not offer. We offer coffee, assortment of Bigalow Teas, two varieties of juices served daily, two options for cereal, oatmeal, smoothies, yogurt, fresh fruit tray, granola bars, hard boiled eggs, bagels, muffins and Danish and a hot breakfast item that we rotate daily. We also offer a complimentary Wine and Cheese Reception served Monday through Thursday from 5p-7p as well as fresh baked cookies daily, as well as chocolates, Fiji water and Wolfgang Puck coffee in all guest rooms complimentary. Seven Gables Inn provides extra perks for our guests that you would not receive at your larger chain hotels which sets us apart from our competition.

We appreciate your feedback and hope you would give us another visit.

Stacey Wallace
