Over the past 30+ years we have stayed at a lot of B&B's - Casa Magnolia is our favorite. Here's why: Lillibet & Jordi - great hosts, genuinely interested in you. House - beautifully and tastefully restored 1906 home, nothing "cutesy". Location - across from Tower Grove park, very convenient to midtown and downtown St Louis. Breakfasts - outstanding & varied. Backyard - great pool, for hot SL summers, nicely landscaped. We've stayed here twice and will stay again, our son lives 6 blocks away.
