Guest Reviews

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 737 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Areas to look at The furniture in the bar/lobby area nearest the check-in desk is looking worn and shabby. When walking out of the lobby into the parking structure there are a number od trash cans and other equipment behind a wire fence that look dusty, colered in lint or are otherwise contaminated with who knows what. I suggest that the area be cleaned and or the fencing be made less easily seen through. That may be the first thing people seenafter driving into the parking lot before entering the hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Service While most of our stays here have been fine, this time was not so. It took an hour and a half just to get checked in!! We had Cardinal tickets and this put us behind schedule. There were 3 of us staying in a suite. There was one packet of coffee and 2 cups. We're big coffee drinkers so we asked for another cup and more coffee. They brought 2 coffee packets and no cup. We called the front desk again. The next time they brought 1/2 regular and 1/2 decaf, and no cup. Such a simple request, and at over $400 a night, you would think they could have handled these issues. To me, all of this was a sign of incompetent employees. The room was clean, beds were comfortable, the valet service was good, as was the luggage service crew. The front desk crew could use more training and customer service skills. September 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel Great room with a view of the river and close to the stadium! September 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Room temperature The night time temperature of the room could not be adjusted and was very cold for us. Our second night we requested and received a second blanket, which helped. Even so, given the uncomfortable first night, the overall experience was not up to expectations. This feature of the building needs immediate attention. We will not use this hotel again for this reason only. We had three rooms, the other two, members of our family, had similar complaint September 17, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Platinum status I very seldom complain because I very seldom have to. This was was second stay in a 3 week period to catch some baseball games. The property is certainly convenient for this. As a Platinum member with the number of points I HAD I expected better maybe renovated rooms on both occasions. It doesn't bother me that 1 drink coupon is all that is offered for my membership. But I know how many qualifying nights I had to stay in property on the West coast to achieve that status. I had two different guest for both stays and they were surprised at what my status earned me. I have NO complaints about the front desk and housekeeping staff. Although hand towels and wash cloths would have been a plus for the second night of my second stay. I hope you will consider replacing my points or a future four night stay in a little nicer room for the status I have achieved. I know it is NOT your fault that the owners don't put money back into the property. But out of all the IHG properties I stay at and away from home this is the least of all of them. September 17, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice need upgrade nice hotel, staff was very friendly and nice...Room was huge, however room need a upgrade. old carpet and wifi didn't work good at all for me. I was there a week for training. Overall I had a nice time September 17, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Won't stay again! Had 2 rooms reserved. Upon our arrival at 6 p.m. 1 room was not cleaned. Air conditioner was not working properly - front desk sent maintenance up. Their fix - a loud box fan that had to run the entire night to keep cool. Rooms were not cleaned upon returning on Saturday afternoon. Rooms were ran down, hole in bathroom door. Bathroom vanity too small - no room for hair care products. No fan in bathroom - after shower - you had to step out to get air or you would have melted. September 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service and Location Excvellent location and friendly service. The view from the room was excellant! September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean. Easy to find and close to all actvities downtown. September 16, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Quality of Hotel The hotel is dated and in need of updating. carpet needs cleaning throughout and rooms updated. additionally, the breakfast buffet was not great and to charge extra for coffee and juice is ridiculous. when i mentioned my concerns to the chef he didn't seem to care. I will not be staying there again! September 15, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Overall hotel I would not recommend this hotel to anyone going to St. Louis. September 13, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dissapointing Stayed due to the hotel being in good location, but that was about it. The bed was uncomfortable, bathrooms are very small, room wasn't the cleanest, hotel staff mischarged me twice for parking even when I explained that I didn't have a car to park in their garage. Have stayed at many Downtown St. Louis hotels, and this was the most unpleasant of them all, would stay elsewhere for sure. September 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not sure if we will stay again This was by far the worst experience we have ever had a hotel. Check in was at 3pm. We were told the room wasn't ready yet and to wait for a phone call. 20 minutes later the entire lobby was full of customers waiting as well. They had told us that they were short on cleaning staff. After waiting over an hour and a half I finally got up to find a manager. I asked when they expected our room to be available. She said there had been plenty of rooms ready that everyone just showed up at once to check in. This was completely untrue. When we came in we walked right to the front desk. She then got us straight into a room. This prevented us from plans that we had made for the day. After talking to many different customers some people got bar comps in completely different amounts and some people got nothing. We were compted nothing. The next morning after asking for extra towels they showed up to the room 30min later. I have never been so dissatisfied with a hotel stay. Location is perfect for all of us to stay there but will think differently next time we are in town. September 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly Front desk and comfortable bed I looked at all the reviews for this hotel before I booked our stay. Granted we only stayed 1 night I would stay again. The only thing that I feel the hotel needs is a little upgrading but for the most part I only needed a place to stay that was convient to my situation. If I wanted a 5 star hotel I could have booked 1. Will definitely stay here again. September 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent staff This was the first time for my family to stay in St Louis and the Hotel staff was very effiecent and made our stay very welcoming and made us feel at home, the room was way beyond our expectations and it was very roomy with having to kids age 8 September 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great weekend get a way! Very friendly staff, easy parking and close to downtown attractions. The room was fine and a great value and the pool with the view of the St Louis Arc is amazing...best view ever! September 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sales staff are the best in the industry I spend around 100 nights a year in hotels. This is my favorite in all of the land. Leslie and group sales are the best. No mater how busy they are, they always have a great attitude, find a way to accommodate our needs. September 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff, Big room It was an enjoyable stay. The front desk staff was very friendly. The room was very spacious. The bathroom was a little small, but it got the job done, and had a nice heat lamp. The view was very nice--I could see the Arch and the Mississippi River from the balcony to my room. September 9, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by home away from home thanks to the wonderful staff they really make my stay enjoyable September 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not the room i requested I requested, and was told I would have, a KING CORNER SUITE. When we arrived, we were booked in a King Suite, which does NOT have a kitchen and does NOT have a large living space that the King CORNER Suite does. I had spoken with Satish, the manager at the time I booked. He is no longer there and they were unable to provide the room I wanted. I had contacted IHG customer service between the time I made my reservation and the time we arrived, (on more than one occasion), because of all the bad reviews on this site. The hotel is old and the carpet and furniture is not in good shape but I guess it's all about LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...which is pretty amazing. September 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Location and friendly staff Great place for a long weekend in STL. One of the best locations in downtown. Close to everything. The staff were friendly and helpful. Every staff member I spoke with was positive, helpful and actually appeared to like their job. September 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great view of the Arch! I did not include my sister's name when I booked the reservation. She arrived earlier than me and had to call me to speak with the front desk, which was fine, except I was scolded like a child. The hotel is old and facilities are as expected from an old building. However, our room was huge with a large terrace and a fabulous view of the Arch! The bed was very comfortable with newer bedding. The bathroom needs to be upgraded. It was sufficient for our needs, but the hot water handle on the sink was broken. We did not interact with staff once we were checked in or dine in the hotel, so I am unable to rate those areas. Overall, for the price, the location downtown was perfect and the large room with such a great view made us glad we stayed at the Crown Plaza in downtown St. Louis. September 4, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rough weekend Had 2 rooms at the Crowne Plaza for Saturday night of Cubs/Cards game plus Big Muddy Blues Festival. Hotel was booked solid. We got in line to check in at 4:15 and did not get through the process until 4:53. While there were 4 people checking customers in the process was extremely slow and not well organized. Compounding the problem was that many rooms were not ready - even though check in was 3pm. Some customers were being told their rooms would not be ready for at least another hour. My son's room was rough...said it sounded like it was pouring rain in his room (it was a clear night) and as a result did not get much sleep Also, I had a king suite with the absolute smallest shower I have ever had in a hotel (I am 6' tall, 220 pounds and shower was a tight squeeze for me. I rated the value as "excellent" as both of my rooms were free since I used Reward Points. September 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by atmosphere was great, room relaxful I liked our stay at the hotel. The room was nice and the view from the balcony was great. Everything we wanted to do was in walking distance which was great. September 3, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Never Again!!!! I stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night, when the Cubs/Cardinals were playing a Friday, Saturday, Sunday series. I arrived at the hotel at 2:30pm and noticed a long line for the front desk. I got in the line and made my way to the front by around 2:45pm. I was told that none of my 3 rooms were ready (understandable since check in wasn't officially until 3pm), but was then told that it would be at least 30 more minutes. At this point the line behind me was even longer than when I had gotten in line. At this point, I left my wife and bags in the lobby and got back in line, thinking that by the time I got back to the front, my rooms would be ready. I made my way to the front again at 3:30 and was given 1 of my 3 rooms, with no idea when my other 2 rooms would be ready. At this point, the rest of my party had arrived at the hotel and I felt like a huge jerk b/c I had made hotel arrangements and they did not have rooms. So we grabbed some beers and headed to my room. Over the next 45 mins, I tried calling the front desk to see if my other rooms were ready, but no one ever picked up. At 4:30 I went back downstairs and stood in line for about 45 mins. I finally got my other rooms at about 5:15 (over 2 hours after the official check in time) and headed over to the bar where the rest of my party had migrated. I headed over with my can of beer that I had been drinking while standing in the 45 minute line and was immediately confronted by the bar tender about bringing outside drinks into his bar. Now, this bar is your typical hotel bar (large open area connected to the lobby) so it wasn't like I was trying to sneak a drink somewhere I shouldn't. When I told him I wouldn't throw it out, he called security on me. Fortunately security had more sense than the bar tender and realized that nearly every guest at their hotel was not happy about having to stand in a lenghy line multiple times to get there room and they told me to continue enjoying my beverage :). Overall the room was old, but satisfactory. However, I will never stay here again given the chance that I may not be able to check in till well after the official check in time. Also, the attitude of the bar tender given the unusual situation of having 300 or so people congrgating in bar/lobby/front desk trying to get a room was unacceptable. September 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice room with comfortable bed Overall service was good. The room was clean and had no problems with anything. The Staff was very friendly including the maid. Good place will stay there again. September 2, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by very poor quality hotel, i would never stay here again. These rooms are ancient and not updated at all. The AC was antiquated and did not work. Do not stay here. My room was free and it was not a good value. I cashed in points to stay here and i wish i had the points back. August 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed/clean room / furniture very worn We've stayed at this hotel numerous times and always had a pleasant experience. Although the bed was comfortable and room clean the furniture was very aged and dresser drawers barely opened plus lighting in bathroom very poor. We didn't remember that being an issue on other stays. Being a platinum IHG member I was disappointed that there was no acknowledgement of that status (earned because of our loyalty to the IHG brand# -- no welcome waters, no upgrade, nothing. Although the day staff was excellent, the night check-in staff was fair #guy I had poor) others were good. We will return to this hotel. August 28, 2014
