I was immediately impressed by the friendly staff upon check-in. The staff was GREAT!!!! Always a friendly face from the front desk, kitchen staff and housekeeping! The kitchen staff went out of their way to provide me GLUTEN FREE cereal, though there was already one available but mot labeled as such. Do not be afraid to speak with Linda, the kitchen manager or Ieishia, another member of the kitchen staff. If you have special dietary needs, make sure you mention it on the first morning of your stay and they will go out of their way to accommodate your needs! Other foods include hard boiled and scrambled eggs, hot and cold cereals, meat, fruit and pastries. A waffle maker is also available.
The rooms are spacious, typical Hampton size! We had a view of the Gateway Arch, while our friends had a view of the Mississippi River. Beds were comfortable and many plugs in the room to accommodate your electronics!
St. Louis is very spacious! However, there is a Subway shop nearby and also a St. Louis Bread Company (Panera) which is also nearby. Both are in walking distance! With that said, there is a restaurant attached to the hotel (Tigins). The chickpea salad was divine!
The front desk staff was extremely helpful is assisting us with our daily excursions, from where the nearest grocery store is to where the closest metro stop is. They also provided maps of the city!
The pool was a good size. My daughter and I were able to play volleyball. The exercise room was standard with weights and a couple of treadmills. There is also a small game room, which the kids used one night.
The hotel is walking distance to Busch Stadium, the Gateway Arch and the casinos. Also, wonderful to say, the hotel had a checker board set up, which our teens made great use of (off the electronics).
There was a slight problem which was immediately corrected to my complete satisfaction, no arguments and with a smile.
I was extremely impressed with Midwest hospitality and would not hesitate to stay again!!!!
