We always love Hampton Inn's and this one didn't change our opinion. Great location, close to Forest Park and not far from downtown at all. Room was clean and quiet, pool was warm and never busy, and their free breakfast was always tasty! The staff was always friendly - we especially loved the sweet, lovely lady who helped us with breakfast each morning! :)

Stayed: October 2012, traveled with family

Dear sp82877;

Thank you for being a loyal Hampton Inn fan! We are in an awesome location, so true! Next time you should stroll down the St. Louis Walk of Fame in the Delmar Loop, try some authentic Italian cuisine on The Hill, or stop in one of the quaint boutique shops in the Central West End - all within two miles of our hotel. Please return - We Love Having You Here!

My family and I stayed Wed-Sat (10/24 – 10/27). We had a WONDERFUL experience. We arrived about 8:30pm on 10/24 and were warmly greeted. The pre-requested adjoining rooms along with a pack-n-play were ready to go and we were thrilled about that because our girls, ages 10, 7 and 2 were tired travelers!

The hotel is in awesome condition and exceeded our expectations. The older girls took advantage of playing in the swimming pool one evening and were delighted to find the noodle toys available (you seem to think of everything). Speaking of thinking of everything, what a nice touch to provide the little blanket with the embroidered animals for the pack-n-play. Our 2 year old was thrilled. She was also excited to return to the room one afternoon after a day of sight seeing to find that housekeeping had arranged her Mickey and Minnie mouse dolls in the little bed.

Breakfast was awesome. The staff did a great job in making sure everything was replenished and clean despite the fact that you were quite busy on Friday and Saturday morning. Although we sat in the main dining area, I liked that you were prepared for breakfast overflow in the meeting room. I think it was greatly appreciated by the guests who came down a little later for breakfast.

Every time we left or entered the hotel, the front desk staff was quick to engage with us and our girls. We felt very welcomed.

As an employee for Hilton, I stay in about 30-40 hotels a year with all of our brands. I can tell you – your hotel is “getting it right”! The attention to detail rivals some of my stays with the Waldorf Astoria brand.

Room Tip: I would recommend the 2nd floor or higher

Dear kccardinal;

Great to hear that we were able to get you in as an early check in, assign you to adjoing rooms, and meet your other requests. We strive to accommodate our guests requests, but it is not always a possibility. I am glad to hear that our housekeepers paid special attention when cleaning your room. Thank you for your kind remarks and we do hope to have the pleasure of having you stay with us again.

What you would expect from a Hampton Inn. Real friendly and helpful staff. Free parking.
Good location. OK it is not Downtown, but easy to drive to and you are across from the park.
Room was clean and had all the usual facilities. Great HD TV and free wifi.
Good standard American free breakfast. Plenty of choice.
Good size pool and fitness centre.
Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Northern end is near I-64, but I didn't hear anything.

Dear janeandallen;

Thank you for your Trip Advisor review. We do hope to have you back! Yes, we are not Downtown but we are in a nice, urban districts about 8 minutes outside of that area. And, like you mentioned, we offer free parking where most of the hotels in the heart of Downtown do charge.

Got a suite and stayed 4 nights. Really worth the extra space. This is a 6 year old property and really well designed so that the rooms are quiet and light. Pool and hot tub a plus. Breakfasts were fresh and well prepared. Service people courteous and helpful. Not downtown so travel is fast and easy. Free parking.

We stayed at the Hampton at Forest Park for one night after my husband had same-day surgery at a nearby hospital. We have stayed at Hamptons for many years, but this one went the extra mile. The staff went out of their way to help you. At breakfast the next morning, they were all smiling and trying to make sure you had everything you needed. The hotel was very quiet and clean. I would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone needing a hotel in that area.

I stay at many Hampton Inn's across the country and have to say this Hampton rises above some of the others. It is a newer facility with a extensive free breakfast options, good size pool, and decent exercise facility. Plus clean rooms and smiling staff---what more could you ask for for a reasonably priced room.

I got in to St. Louis super early (7:30 a.m.) and they were nice enough to allow me to check-in. My room was very large with a small desk and trendy little couch. The bathroom was also very large.

Front desk staff were very friendly, specifically the young woman who checked me in. Kudos to consistent friendly staff :) Much appreciated as a road warrior. Both mornings they had free bottles of water at the front desk.

The Central West End neighborhood is about 5 minutes away by car and it's adorable if you are needing a good place for dinner or drinks. I think they may have a shuttle, but not 100% sure.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper level room.

I visit often the St Louis area for business and to see friends/family. This hotel is one of my Fav's for its clean accommodations and superior location right across from beautiful Forest Park and easy access to downtown. Nice staff as well. If your looking for food off property you will have to use your car but there are a wide range of choices within an easy 10 minute drive. The Italian area with great food a.k.a. "The Hill" is very close. St Louis's gayborhood is also around the corner if your looking for a bit more diversity. Safe area...

Dear cwhoop;

How nice to hear that you have stayed with us several times and took the time to review our property in Trip Advisor. It is greatly appreciated! We are in a great location and the closest hotel to Forest Park. There are some great restaurants within driving distance. We always recommend the Hill, our historic Italian district. But, you can walk to the Highlander Pub & Grill and Jimmy John's, if you wish. Come back and check out the Delmar Loop, Central West End, and visit The Grove. Did you ever try Sweetie Pie's in the Grove? They are world famous!
