Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ladyb250 Friendly staff and good location
We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn in Forest Park. The staff was very friendly and responded quickly to any requests that we made.
We chose this location as it was close to both the zoo and Grant's Farm. Very good central location to see sights.
If I were to stay here again, I would request to not face 44 as the traffic noise took some getting used to and would have preferred not having a patio door that faces the parking lot.
We would stay here again!

This is our third stay there. We are planning a fourth stay in St. Louis and looking forward to staying there again. Location is such that you have no problems going to see the sites.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pinkmama Great location, fair price
My husband and I stayed at this property with our 7-year-old son over a weekend in St. Louis. We were there for a baseball game and the zoo. The hotel is very conveniently located the highway about 10 minutes from Busch Stadium and only a few minutes from the zoo. (But you shouldn't plan to walk to the zoo - not a great neighborhood you would walk through.) The room was fine. There were no extra outlets anywhere for the floor lamp in the room or to charge a phone and the bathroom counter is tiny - just the space around the sink. We did enjoy our complimentary snacks and beverages. The beds are okay and the air conditioner unit makes a big racket, but we all slept fine. We did not take advantage of the fitness room or pool. The staff was very pleasant.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ozarkokie Comfortable and convenient
We chose this location because we wanted to spend quite a bit of time at Forest Park. You can exit on Hampton, just outside the hotel, and drive right into the park.
I was unhappy to see that our room was on the I-44 side of the building, but there was virtually no traffic noise.
The staff was welcoming and pleasant, and our room was clean and well supplied.
The only problem we had with the stay was that the air conditioner in our room seemed to have only two speeds — off and full blast. My husband had to get up a few times during the night to adjust it so we would be comfortable and this disturbed our sleep. The second night, after walking around most of the day, I had no problems sleeping.
All in all, it's a place I'd return to when we visit St. Louis again.
The location makes it convenient to get to downtown or to any part of the county you want to visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zamboni It's safe and clean
This hotel is a bit older and shows it's age in places. But our room was safe and clean. Everything worked fine. The staff was fine, but not stellar. A fair number of places to eat nearby, very convenient to the Zoo, Cathedral and only 15 minutes or less to the Arch. The pool was a bit small for the size of the hotel.
Lots of seating in the cafe, no one was ever there when we looked in, probably due to the pricing in comparison to the other local options.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Revvrm Won't stay again
Neighbors were loud, pool was dirty, air conditioner was either too cold or too hot-loud, not worth the money paid. Staff not very friendly. When told of my stay as I was checking out, all I heard was 'Oh.' Not what I expected when staying at a Holiday Inn. If available, will stay somewhere else.

Really enjoyed this hotel/location. Has a person in a wheelchair. Originally when I booked the room they did not hear that I needed a w/c accessible room. I called hotel to confirm this is what I booked, and found out it was not. At this time they were having an issue w/ the a/c being frozen and didn't know if i could get w/ c accessible room. Later I received a called stating the A/C was fixed and the room was saved for me!! I would of like to of seen a little more room in between beds to get w/c in there. Shower had a fold down shower chair!! Would of like to seen arm rest to assure safety. Hotel lounge was great! Food was amazing, as was the bartender. I would recommended this hotel. The pool does have a hoyer to lower someone in a wheelchair in, this is an amazing device that you don't see many hotels have!!

Every single staff member at this older but nicely renovated property seems to go out of their way to make your stay a good one. The hotel is clean, quiet, well maintained, and friendly. Complementary coffee in the morning, lemonade in the afternoon, a simple little café and lounge good tv selection, good free wireless internet, and comfortable beds and chairs. I don't need much more in a hotel.

We were very impressed with the facility. The manager, Bret, was extremely polite and accommodating and went out of his way to take care of us. In addition, when we inadvertently left something behind he tracked it down and promised to ship it home to us.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NotAHappyCamper2013 Not the best...
Well, all I can say is that this is not one of the better HI hotels. They said that it had been renovated about 2 years ago, but it didn't look or feel like it. There was no signage at the street to indicate where to turn into the hotel for starters. The only signage was on the hotel where it faced the highway. NOT helpful. The room and hallways all felt and looked dated. They even had a piece of wood in the balcony sliding door to hold it closed. Really? In addition, the air conditioning unit was loud as could be when it came on and went off, leading me to wake up about every time it cycled. Would've been nice to have a constant running type of fan on this thing so I didn't hear all that noise. Wow. The only positive I'll give this property is that the employees at the front desk were super-nice and tried their best. Very professional and friendly indeed.

Great place to stay. Thanks to Donato for the extra help and the first time I received a room upgrade with IHG hotels. I've been a platinum member for years and this is the first time I've actually been upgraded.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rig2 My St. Louis Favorite
I visit St. Louis several times each year for business/pleasure trips and this is my first choice for a place to stay. The friendly staff is great, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and access to the places I go easy. There are conveniences near the hotel, parking is free, internet is free, and in winter there is hot chocolate mix in the lobby and in warm weather, lemonade. Small restruant is simple but good fore a light evening meal. No fridge in the room so ask for a room on a floor with an ice machine. When the weather is nice, small balcony to enjoy being outside. Bathrooms are a bit small but functional. They have upgraded to all the new Holiday inn bedding, linnes, and such. Nearby the Science Center, Zoo, Forest Park, the MUNY, and SLU. Wash U. and the medical centers are easy to reach and downtown is only a few minutes away.

There were several areas that were lacking from a housekeeping standpoint.
1) one night wastebasket in bathroom was not emptied
2) ice bucket not emptied and cleaned, still had melted water in it from the night before
3) floors not vacuumed during entire stay
4) no drinking cups in room
5) coffee bar not replenished daily

Was disappointed in this hotel. My past experience with Holiday Inn has always been positive. The elevators appeared to be in need of replacement, was expecting a Continental Breakfast, which they did not have, for the price I was expecting more.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ecobee Tired old hotel with great staff.
Not the best place, but not bad either. Cost was significantly less than new place across the street which was overtly high priced.
Upon checkin though, the staff was great. On the second night the restaurant and bar staff remembered my name and treated me very well. Anything I needed was immediately taken care of. I would stay again only for the staff and locatoni. The rooms need remodeling and new HVAC equipment that is more comfortable and quiet.
