My wife and I stayed here the first three nights in October to watch the Cardinals play the Reds in the season ending series in which they clinched the wild card spot in the MLB playoffs. It is about 6 or 7 blocks to the ballpark but it was an easy walk and we felt safe as we returned from each nights game. It I had known the Rams played in the Thursday night NFL game we would have stayed another night and gone to the game.
The Hampton is in a convenient location to get on the Interstate and to access downtown. Parking is plentiful and was reasonably priced. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with suggestions for restaurants. There is a large breakfast area in the basement. It contained a good selection of items for breakfast although my wife made waffles for us each morning with cinnamon sugar, walnuts and dried cranberries added.
Next to the Westin which is a half block away from the ballpark, this was an excellent place to stay in downtown St. Louis. The rates are much better here at the Hampton than the Westin. We will probably be returning here on our once yearly trip to St. Louis for some Cardinal games and Italian food on The HIll. We also like to stop at Trader Joe's where we stock up on unique food items and their selection of coffees.
