Unique and lovely hotel. Would love to stay again. The mattress was extremely comfortable. Fire place made the first floor smell great. Breakfast was a great treat. .....................................

I surprised my husband with a romantic getaway for our 20th anniversary. We are a bit picky when it comes to hotels and this hotel is nearly perfect. This is NOT your typical chain-hotel. Impressively clean and well maintained. LOVED the architecture and ambience. Complimentary breakfast was OK. Muffins, fruit, pastiers, cereals, bagels, toast, various juices & milks. Would like to see something a little hartier. The room was a bit stuffy, but loved that we could open the windows - like in a Christmas Carol. The bathroom sensor light was a bit odd - ended up having to call the front desk to figure out how to get it to turn off at 2:00am. Would like to see free parking for over-night guests. Overall a fabulous experience. Can't wait to go back!!

A very busy hotel which at the same time is very friendly, the inside decor is far from minimalistic and is very homely. The room which I stayed in was a suite and the comfort level was excellent. I usually have problems with the beds but this one was like the princess and the pea. As for the bar staff they were fantastic and Stella on tap well life can't get any better.........especially when there note house........

Room Tip: The suites are perfect. Each room has a theme. Enjoy and read the book. I stayed in the Sir Walter Scott room this is situated on the 3rd floor, relatively quite but signal wifi strength for the iPad was weak. I am very fussy on the rooms and this place is a gem I would recommend this to everyone. One word of caution the main al la cart restaurant is expensive and so to is the bar, one good thing about this is that means no riffraff(undesirables).

The staff is generally helpful and polite. The bar in house has good food, and is a very popular spot for locals. The service there is great. The breakfast is well above average, not a huge offering, but well chosen and high quality. The lobby area is more a long and angled hall than the typical large overdone lobby, but it's very nice, and has a beautiful fireplace. The rooms are fine, nothing to write home about, but no complaints. The location will either be great or to far out depending on what you are lolling for. It's near the galleria shopping area and the Clayton business district. It is not terribly near downtown-about a $25 cab.

spiil,

Thank you writing and sharing your experience at our property! The Cheshire is the perfect destination if you were coming into town to enjoy Forest Park, shopping, the local universities, a romantic getaway, or just want to get away but stay close enough to the busy downtown area.

Our iconic Fox and Hounds Tavern will continue with its great service as we hope you'll return to enjoy again. We hope to hear from you soon!

Sincerely,
The Cheshire Team

This is a charming, recently renovated Tudor-style inn between St. Mary's hospital and the giant Amoco sign. Each room is named after a different English author. We stayed in the Harold Pinter room, and I confess that I had not heard of this playwright so it was an educational stay right off the bat! There are some novelty suites for some of the more popular authors such as Shakespeare, Ian Fleming and Robert Louis Stevenson. For some reason, Tolkien's is just a regular room -- I think it would be great if they could turn it into a Hobbit Hole but I suppose that might go over-budget. I asked to look at one of the novelty suites but unfortunately they were all occupied. Next time I come back, maybe I will stay in the Passage to India suite.

Here were some pros and cons of this hotel:
Pro:
- super-friendly staff
- Fox and Hounds pub is cozy and they give a generous pour. To get an idea about the ambience, imagine one of the old Steak and Ale restaurants only nicer and smaller.
- Carl's deli down the street makes the best hot pastrami sandwich I have tasted.
- you can rent a bicycle for free (3 hours) and ride around Forest Park.
- our room was very quiet and dark, so we slept well.
- 4 computers with large monitors in the business center. I have stayed at a Marriott which was much larger but offered only 2 computers.
- Aveda bath products.

Cons:
- as at least one other reviewer pointed out, those sharp wooden bed posts jut out right around knee level. Ouch! I hit it 3 times (ok, I am a slow learner), and my wife also hit it and got a nasty bruise.
- the closest Metrolink station is about 2 miles away and the hotel does not offer shuttle service.
- the accomodations are not super-remarkable or plush, just cozy. No bathrobes or slippers, etc. And the breakfast was also just ok, nothing remarkable. On the other hand, usually one has to pay more for those things so I am still giving an Excellent overall rating for value.
