This Inn is on the National Register of Historical Places and is a great place to stay. My daughter and I loved the breakfast and it was wonderful to get away in the totally enclosed courtyard. We were welcomed into the Inn and Carl registered us, helped us with luggage and parked our car too. I would definitely stay here...

We were visiting Susan's parents in Clayton, who happen to live within a block of the Seven Gables, to we decided to give it a try. When we arrived, we were immediately given terrific free parking across the street, very convenient. Our bags were whisked off while we checked in. Chocolate chip cookies, too. The lady who checked us in...

I did not want to stay downtown St. Louis because we were going to a concert at the nearby Pagaent. I felt like I was staying at a Bavarian village. A great setting, cool rooms, and away from the hustle of downtown.

This is one of our favorite places to stay. The Seven Gables is beautiful, has a wonderful, quiet courtyard and the room was perfect for the romance my wife and I were looking for.

I've stayed at the Seven Gables Inn several times because I enjoy the charm, architecture, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable beds, and great location within easy walking distance to many restaurants and sites. There are a few drawbacks - the breakfast fare needs healthier options with fresh, better-quality food, the daily parking fee is high, and there is no elevator....

I travel frequently for business and was getting tired of characterless hotel chains. So, I decided to book the Seven Gables due to charm and proximity to where I had to be.

We booked a room for ourselves, and a block of rooms for our guests, for our wedding last weekend, and we could not be more pleased with our choice.
