Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DublinEd Don't Buy Breakfast
Very disapointed with this Holiday Inn.
-Proximity to South St. Louis
-Lobby is nice
-Food: Breakfast quality and service were dreadful. This would have been sub-standard quality for a FREE breakfast, much less one that the hotel charges you for. One co-worker commended that the gravy smelled and tasted like armpit.
-Accommodations: Rooms are outdated. This is not a refreshed HI property, like the lobby would have you believe. Rooms are old, carpet soggy and beds squishy.
-Internet: Don't even think about trying their WIFI. Slowest internet that I've ever experienced in 10 years of business travel. I wound up using a mobile hot spot.
-Staff: When there was an issue with my bill, front desk staff complained about management. Blamed management for the issue and proceeded to tell me they he is just a "poor small town boy with a public school education." And not fancy like me. Weird.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kentuckreb Great room, beds, and service, but major wifi problems.
Our stay was wonderful with one exception, the wifi was down at least half of the time that we were there. On the first night, I called the front desk and the man told me that his internet was also down. The next day, the internet was back in service, but I was not able to log on. The deskman connected me with an IT person, and he was able to give me a code to enter. In this day and age, this is inexcusable. Very frustrating!

Beds were due to be replaced, kept sinking toward the middle. Heater/air conditioner very noise.
Bathroom fixtures grout loose and hanging down.
Grout behind bathroom door dirty, discolored.
We paid way too much for breakfast, it was cold and tasteless. Next morning went to nearby restaurant down the street, paid less for a much better food selection, hot!
NOT a 4 or 5 star.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by deni37 Great renovations and clean room
The hotel and rooms have a fresh modern look. Loved the leather sofa. The staff was super friendly and professional and addressed my every inquiry/need promptly. Housekeeping kept the room very clean. Internet speed was a little iffy during the early evening hours but I didn't need it for much more than checking email so it wasn't a very big deal. It's located close to shopping centers and a nice selection of eateries from fast food to a great place (Tucker's Place South) to get an 8oz filet mignon dinner (which was very good, btw--also try the Glo Salad) for less than $20. I recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Glbride Good nights rest, but skip the breakfast
I liked the inn. Good location, nice people, no real complaints except one - the food. We decided to have breakfast with another couple. The main course consisted of eggs, sausage, bacon, oatmeal and biscuits with gravy. The scrambled eggs were runny like they put too much water in the bag when reconstituting them. The oatmeal and gravy were runny too. After spending a good night at the inn, we were looking forward to a good breakfast. Clearly, the food left a bad taste in our mouth. I don't think anything was served at 140 degrees. The food should have been served in containers to maintain the proper temperature. In a nutshell, good inn to sleep, but skip the breakfast.

The wings are the best! Antonio is the cook and he really did his thing. Oh and we were not satisfied with our first order of nachos so Antonio hooked those up too! The drinks were great.
The room was wonderful; I slept like a baby.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KSCAT Location was good to get in and out of downtwon staff seemed uninterested in complaint
We stayed at the hotel during our visit to the St. Louis Area for the NCAA basketball regional. I was traveling with my 2 boys 1 teenager and 1 middle school age. The 2nd night at the hotel when we got off of the elevator I noticed a terrible aroma of smoke and not from your average cigarettes. My children commented on the smoke appearance int he hallway and that it smelled like a "skunk" was in the hotel. I quickly changed the subject and we hurried to our room. It was late and we went to bed and when we woke in the morning you could slightly smell it in our "NON-SMOKING ROOM". As we headed to the elevator to check out the kids again commented on the smell in the hallway. As I was checking out I mentioned this all to the manager and he seemed all to busy and a brief i'm sorry was all he offered. I felt that for our level of loyalty to Holiday Inn a better response was warranted.
We had a great stay and the location makes traveling in and out of downtown very easy. The hotel for an older property was in good condition other than having a non smoking room and having to deal with the smell of "smoke" throughout the entire wing of the 2nd floor we were on.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Alexis93 Great Stay - Swimming Pool Not Accessible
I checked in for Spring Break to give my daughter, who is disabled an opportunity to swim. This location was the closest to home with an indoor pool. The room was nice and clean, located on the first floor, the bathroom was fully accessible and the staff was very friendly. The only downside was the inaccessible pool and hot tub. There were about 10-15 stairs leading to the pool. I had to bump down her wheelchair then walk her down the stairs to the lower level and repeat to exit the pool area. There is an area to the left of the stairs for a lift. I would highly recommend this location, it was very contemporary...the only negative would be the limited accessibility in the pool area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kyle51106 Comfortable room, public areas not as much
My partner and I stayed at this hotel while attending a March Madness game downtown. We selected the hotel because it offered a good value for a quality room, and because it was away from congestion downtown. The guest room was in good condition - clean, welcoming, and the bed was very comfortable. We were less satisfied with the public areas of the hotel. She was concerned about guests drinking and talking loudly in the lobby; it did not affect our guest room, but it was not a great first impression. The pool area was messy mid-morning on Saturday, and there were no pool towels available. Service was good; a desk agent helped direct us to the hotel when we were having trouble finding it, and housekeepers were courteous about providing towels and showing us to the pool area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NaeFar Great Staff and comfortable rooms.
My husband and two granddaughters stayed there for this last weekend. It was very nice to be greeted by Tom at the front desk. He was very polite and nice to work with. We enjoyed the room, the only thing is my granddaughter found a half empty 2 liter of orange soda under the bed. Other than that, the room was very clean and satisfactory. We will definitely be staying there again. It is a great location, just a couple of miles away from our son and his family. So close to all of the fun activities to do in St. Louis. This was the second time we stayed there, the last time was when our son moved down to this area last Aug. We ate in the dining room for dinner and also had an amazing breakfast. SUPER JOB TO YOU ALL! We know now that this is our place to stay when we come for visits from here on out. Keep up the good work to all the staff at this location. We will be seeing you soon I'm sure!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sleepless in South County I picked the wrong weekend!!!!!
We had a miserable time, but not because the hotel was unsatisfactory. We tried to use the pool and hot tub. There were about 15 jr. high age boys having a bday party. They were throwing ice buckets and being crazy. I was very worried about our 7 year old trying to swim. The hot tub had just been refilled, so the water was cold. We went back up to the room and watched tv. The noise in the hallways was ridiculous. It was Mardi Gras weekend and there was also a group of 20somethings that were attending a wedding. They were drunk and very loud. Doors were slamming all night, people were yelling in the halls, and someone was trying to get in our room mistakenly. He kept inserting his room card and yelling that it wouldn't work. I finally got up and told him that he had the wrong room. The heater went on and off all night. It was VERY annoying. I finally turned it off completely. At 5:10a.m. I was awakened by an unusual noise. I got up to look and a man was scraping ice and snow off his vehicle, right below our window. That was the end of the couple of hours of sleep we got. It was not an enjoyable time.

The friendly and engaging staff was immediate from the person checking us in. Every morning (4:30 am), afternoon or evening, the staff was walkways pleasant and comforting our stay. The room was exceptionally clean and up to date with towels that still felt soft and not rough as if washed many times already. The up to date furniture and bathroom provides a cleaner and uplifting experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sleepless99 No sleep because air conditioner would not turn off
The appearance of the hotel is very nice. My room was adequate, nothing special but nothing bad. I have stayed in many hotels recently in the surrounding states including Colorado, Kansas, and several in Missouri, and this room was the most expensive, and uncomfortable. I was in town for an interview and slept very very poorly. The air conditioner in the room was quite loud. I finally turned it off at 2am since it was interrupting my sleep, and decided I would rather be cold (it was negative degrees outside) than not sleep. For the rest of the night, the air condition (which was still turned off) would turn itself on and run for about 10 seconds every hour, thus I was re-awakened once an hour. Needless to say, I did not sleep well the night before an interview. I believe the price was overrated, and the room quality was poor since the purpose of my trip was to sleep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hockey mom1 poor breakfast
In the future if you are hosting a hockey team for thier tournaments.....you should provide an adequate breakfast. You need to have fruit available and juice, maybe some toast too!. Eggs and sausage alone is not a healthy way for teams to energize in the morning before games. The waffles were 'ok' but went quickly and were not replaced. Then the only thing they had to drink was water or coffee---not good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NeedingGrace Ok room, bad day to stay
The room was fine, nothing spectacular. A couple of issues in the bathroom (there was a hole in the back of the door where it had been slammed), but on the whole not too bad.
I was just the wrong day to stay in St. Louis as the Cards were in the playoffs, and had a game in town, so the hotel was full with people carrying cases of beer and being loud. Not the hotels fault, but it was part of my experience. Something to think about if you plan on staying in the fall.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joyce711 Renovations still needed.
No current HBO Guide for November 2013 in the room. None was available at the lobby desk.
The ice/vending machine on the first floor was not available due to a repair so I had to use the ice machine up on the next floor.
The Spa/Hot Tub was also not available due to a repair. Although the staff person did compensate us with 2 free drinks (good customer service) when I told her that I was disappointed.
There was a light out in the center of the dining room.
The Rib eye was not good. It was thin and had a lot of fat and grizzle with no taste. The salad was good and so was the blueberry cheesecake.
The dining room service by Lisa/Liza was very good.
The dining/great room was noisy due to overflow of wedding parties.
The salt water pool was great.
There was no hair conditioner and a very small bottle of shampoo which was coconut verbena and had a good smell, A good body lotion but it was a very small bottle.
There was no shelf place in the shower to put soap or shampoo.
Two rings fell off the shower head when I was adjusting the pressure.
The pillows were fluffy and abundant.
Good TV and heat in the room.
There was very little room with just enough room for a chair.
I would have preferred a light by the chair to read and a recliner instead of a chair.
The light between the beds worked half the time.
A light continually flashed on the phone and I could not pickup on either line to get the reception desk to clear the messages.
There were thin sheers on the window and I could not close the drapery because they were not made to close. I could see people walking on the other side of the window because the hallway was across from our room. I felt like they could see in our room since I could see them.
Last of all the alarm went off in the middle of the night due to a water pipe breaking. The firemen came to check it out while we waited in the lobby.
I previously attended the reopening of this hotel. The welcoming event was great. However, I have to ask why were so many things in need of repair after this renovation plus our room seemed to lack the updated comforts that I expected.
