The staff was friendly and helpful. In particular, Lawrence. Instead of pointing directions when we asked where something was, he walked my husband out and showed him. I find this exceptional in this day and age. The room was ok. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The coffee bar is always open and the coffee is good!... More

This hotel is on the other side of Forest Park and is closer to the Hill area. Clearly this is the first misinformation. The reception and the entrance area is warm and modern, but the elevators creak and the rooms require major refurbishment and revamp. The beds seem old, the mattresses and linen have seen much wear and the bathroom... More

Staff was friendly, but the rooms are in need of serious upgrades. Outlet near bed was shoddy was hanging out of the wall, comforter had what appeared to be dried blood on it--called down and they immediately replaced it, but EW! Overpriced for an outdated Holiday Inn. No free breakfast at those rates, either!

Dear ecgruen, I apologize that your stay with us was disappointing. We unfortunately do not offer free breakfast as this is only Holiday Inn Express. We have a full service restaurant that we offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. As well as kids under 12 eat free. I apologize for the issue with the bedding and have discussed this with our... More

We stayed here because it was one of the only places available last minute. Out of all the hotels we've stayed at over our 2 week road trip this was the most mediocre and the most expensive. The location was perfect because it was close to the botanical gardens and zoo - which is why we were there. The staff... More

Staff were accommodating and nice. We were traveling in the area and this was a convenient hotel for the Missouri Botanical Garden and friends we were visiting in the area.

Friend staff and good location. However, the rooms are really in need of updating. Rather run down. The toilet was installed VERY crooked and far away from the wall. Makes me question the expertise of any of the work that was done on the rooms

I spent here one night. The hotel is nice and clean. Staff is friendly. There is also a restaurant inside if you don't want to go out. The only negative note is the smell at the ground floor.
