“New, Modern, Clean, and Centrally-Located”
Reviewed May 28, 2008

This hotel has a contemporary design with light, neutral-colored decor. The bed was comfortable, and the room was spacious. I liked the bathroom's large counter and the big mirror. The service was very friendly, and the location can't be beat. It's very centralized with easy access to Kingshighway, the 40, as well as close proximity to Forest Park, University City, the Central West End, and even downtown by highway. What's best is the ample free parking, which is a rarefind these days.

I stayed at this hotel for a family wedding, and I was pleasantly surprised. The room (one king bed) was spacious and decorated in a nice modern style. The lobby and staff were pleasant, even though they were very busy (I think there were several wedding groups staying there that weekend). Though we were first told there were no cribs for our baby available, the manager was able to locate one and personally called to let us know it was being sent up.

There were fresh cookies available at the desk periodically, and the pool and fitness center, though small, were well-maintained and had good equipment.

As of this review (Memorial Day weekend 08), the sports bar on the premises was closed. There were a couple of casual restaurants within walking distance, though--a few blocks away without needing to cross the interstate.

Note: those this is very geographically close to Forest Park, you can't really walk there very well, considering it's across the very busy interstate. A car works better.

The breakfast was good with a fair number of choices--mostly cold (pastries, cereal, fruit) but a couple of hot items. The breakfast room was pleasant.

  • Liked — Clean, modern decor.

A new hotel along I64 near Forest Park. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. It's a good place to stay.

The pizzaria just up the hill to the west is a great place for dinner.

Our 2 queen bed room was exactly like the pictures on the hotel website shows, it was excellent. The beds were comfortable, love the fluffy pillows. Very clean!

There was a wedding during our stay but we barely heard a thing, the halls were quiet from our room on the fourth floor and very secure.

As other reviewers have mentioned there is a wonderful breakfast the hotel provides and for free who can complain. During our stay there was also just one lady working and while trying to keep up with everything that was out and all the people going through she could have used some help.

I have read some reviews about a new parking garage, the must have been built after our stay because we do not remember any parking garage. During our stay the front parking lot would fill up very fast so if you did not get a spot early and came in late you would have to walk down two big flights of stairs to get to the lower parking lot, that was a pain!

The front desk and all the staff were always very helpful and very pleasant to speak with.

We have two small children and stayed for our yearly trip to the St. Louis Zoo, pretty much right across from the hotel, excellent location!

We will be staying again next week!
A highly recommended hotel I have to say!

The rooms were very clean and spacious. The free breakfast was a nice perk. The hot items swiched daily and the staff was quick to refill any items that were running low. The free parking was also a nice perk. The garage had just been completed the day we arrived.
There was free high speed internet. If they don't tell you at the front desk, the password is included in your key envelope. I stumbled onto the password on the third day of my trip.
I was somewhat disappointed with the location. I though we'd be staying right on the park and arrived to discover that there's an interstate between the park and the hotel.
The most disappointing part was that the sports bar advertised on their website was closed. Traveling during March Madness we were looking forward to a relaxing first night in town. After some sight seeing we planned to have a drink and watch some games. We headed down to the restaurant only to find that the windows were covered up and there was a closed sign on the door.

  • Liked — The king size bed.
  • Disliked — The misadvertising of the sports bar.

We stayed here as part of a convention/group event. This hotel is very clean and very nicely decorated. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast was perfect for being free...pastries, oatmeal, cereal, sausages, french toast. Just great. Free parking. A convenient restaurant right next door.
We will stay here again.

When traveling, I usually stay with the Hilton chain of properties. This Hampton is wonderful and isn't very old. The room was great, you'd swear it was a Hilton room, at half the price. The lines, towels and amenities were great as well. I used the fitness center, all the equipment was in top shape and the pool / sauna were clean and in working order. The property is quiet, I heard no noise overnight. The breakfast was great, I don't know how anyone could go without. I'd recommend this property for business, families or just passing through. Very close to the St. Louis Science Center.
