“My kind of hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2011

Do you like unique hotels? Hotels with character? Tired of marble atriums, long hallways, elevators, cookie cutter style? This is the place. Great room, nice furnishings, nice king bed, nice bathroom. Great service. Wine and cheese in the evening, decent continental breakfast. Great attached restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

This Inn came recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. We appreciate the unique character of the building, its old world charm. The rooms are well appointed. The staff were all very welcoming, helpful and pleasant. The only slight disappointment was the shower water pressure, as it was quite weak; however, given the age of the building, this is understandable. We are looking forward to staying there again soon.

Thank you for the nice review.

We are pleased you found the hotel to be comfortable and charming. This is what separates us from the larger cookie cutter hotels.

Thank you for bringing the water pressure to our attention this is something we would not have caught had you not brought this to our attention.

Thank you again and we look forward seeing you again.

Seven Gables is one the, if not the, most comfortable and inviting hotels I have stayed at - and I am a frequent traveler. The staff is excellent, especially Melvin who always is friendly and attentive, and Kristen who always has a pleasent smile and a refreshing beverage. I consider them both good friends and recommend them highly.

Also, while the hotel does not have its own fitness facility, they provide free passes to the fitness facilities at the Center of Clayton which has everything include all the equipment, lap pools, basketball courts, etc. within a mile of the hotel.

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know about the exceptional service provided by the staff at the Seven Gables Inn. I know that the Seven Gables Inn is an enjoyable stay for both business or pleasure. Each person that I know who has stayed at the Inn has had a truly enjoyable weekend. You will not feel like you are on business rather it will feel like a vacation. The service and attention to detail of Matt Andrews, the Manager, is unmatched. He represents the establishment well and takes care of all of the guests.

the place was awesome. The workers were helpful and pleasant to talk to. The rooms were clean and spacious. I loved the water, and Godiva chocolate that they gave you every night.

I stayed at Seven Gables for an intimate getaway with my spouse and had the best time ever. This hotel is beautifully tucked away on North Meremac in Clayton, with a spiral staircase leading up to a cozy, romantic french style charm getaway suite!

We started our Seven Gables experience with a very nice fruit and cheese welcome, and some delicious warm cookies at the front desk which was so welcoming. Then headed up the staircase into our beautiful suite that is if I might add...amazing and such a comfortable night stay! I almost forgot to mention, a fabulous dinner at Molly Darcy's helped a great deal.....yuummm!!

Before leaving we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast offered that was an added touch that we really appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Thank you for your review.

We are so happy you find the hotel charming and cozy. It is definitely not your cookie cutter hotel and once you walk through the front doors you really don't feel like you are in the city any longer.

We look forward to seeing you again.

This is a quaint small hotel in the center of Clayton, MO. Great location if your son or daughter is at Washington University in St. Louis. We recommend it highly. Rooms are very comfortable and cozy. You are away from the big hotels and it is very quite. The staff is great. The attention to having a great stay is visible everywhere. There are a number of fine restaurants within one or two blocks. They have great chocolate chip cookies after 3 PM for the guests.
