Breakfast was the only downside. Basically what it always is with the exception of very fake tasting, inedible eggs and breakfast meats and salty oatmeal. They do offer Greek yogurt and boiled eggs which is a plus. Other reviews have mentioned walking to the zoo, I think it would be too far and not a pedestrian friendly route.

Dear Jessica S;

We hope that you will come back and give our Hot on the House Breakfast another try! All the eggs are real eggs! We hear great things about the western omelets, and honestly, most all of our breakfast items! Glad that you found some items to your liking - there are many to choose from! We are a little over a mile to the Zoo; so, it depends on how much walking our guests choose to do. It is a nice walk but there is a lot of walking involved once you are in the Zoo, too. Please come back - We Love Having You Here!

I was a little apprehensive about staying here at first. I did not know the neighborhood, and St.Louis has very diverse areas. But Staying here turned out really nice. The Hotel is one of the best in the Hilton Family of Hotels, and the neighborhood around it is being rebuilt into a really comfortable professional area. The added benefit is that this location is centrally located in St.Louis, and close to everything East of Interstate 270.

Dear RTG-travlin;

Thank you for finding our location and reviewing us on Trip Advisor. We are in an awsome are, on the outskirts of downtown St. Louis. We are proud to have just received the Circle of Excellence reward, issued to Hampton Inn's that rank amongst the top 10% of 1,800 hotels across the country. There are several other factors that play into this, as well. We set between the Highlands Lofts and Forest Park Commnuity College. There is a luxury apartmen living complex being built on the grounds surrounding us and a Mercedes Dealer going in about a 1/4 of a mile from here. Please come back! We Love Having You Herre!

We only stayed one night at the hotel but I found the staff to be very helpful. Even though the hotel was completely booked, they were able to accommodate our request for an early check-in. We were greeted warmly at the front desk upon arrival and the friendly service continued throughout our stay. The rooms were nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable. The pool and hot tub were well maintained and an enjoyable area to spend some time. The hotel also offered a complimentary breakfast which was very good. The hotel is centrally located to several attractions in the St. Louis area. I would definitely stay here again.

Have stayed at this Hampton Inn a few times in St. Louis when visiting our daughter at Washington University and will continue to stay here on future visits. Clean, well kept, friendly staff, good location. Cannot think of any negatives to say about this Hotel.

My daughters and I spent the weekend in St. Louis, and Hampton Inn on Oakland Ave. was the perfect central location. We were within walking distance from the St. Louis Science Center, and no more than a 10 to 15 minutes from any attraction we wanted to see. The room was spacious (see pictures) and very clean. The bed was one of the more comfortable ones I've found in a hotel. The front desk staff was very efficient and friendly. There was breakfast every morning from 6 AM - 10 AM, and it was plentiful. Check-in and check-out was seamless. The pool and hot tub were small but very clean. Bottom line, I will plan to stay there on my next visit to St. Louis.

overall a good hotel for the business traveler. location between downtown and Clayton makes it convenient. The hotel is clean and has good decor with the Forest Park Amusement theme. The restaurant is good- sports bar menu with some nice entrees.

negative- the parking is out of the way and not covered

On a rainy miserable night, I was greeted by Lisa at the front desk. She was very friendly and quickly got me to my room. It was quite large and very clean. I was impressed by the ammenities in the room, which included 2 beds, a sofa and chair, a large desk and nice kitchen area. The pool was very scenic and the fitness room had everything you could need. Right across from forest park and north of the Hill, you couldn't pick a better location.
