Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coachk25 Convenient to all city has to offer!
Save a few dollars and still get great service and location just outside downtown St. Louis!! The HI Express Downtown is next to historic Lafayette Square and has much to offer with regards to accessing downtown and surrounding St Louis neighborhoods!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jenifermae Weekend in St. Louis
This property is not really downtown, it's a 10 minute drive. The rooms are spacious,. We were in a suite and the bedroom a/c was leaking and the Capet was soaked in 1/2 the room. We were told it would be dry and fixed the next day. It was not. The staff was SUPER nice but needed permission from an offsite manger do do anything. The pool was closed and no one really knew when it would open. I guess if I HAD to stay here again I would as the staff tried very hard . But given a choice I would pass.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lynn94 Staff friendly and hotel comfortable
Neighborhood is questionable in some areas so not comfortable walking anywhere. However, very much enjoyed Lafayette Square just a few blocks' drive away. Hotel very comfortable and always felt safe. Staff very friendly and accommodating. I had read a lot of reviews about the lack of hot water which we never experienced and the location of the hotel but we were quite comfortable there.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by johniii333 Average Stay not Typical of other Holiday Inn's
Not the best location. Bathroom not cleaned properly. No soap in lobby bathroom. Overall I am disappointed as most if not all of my experiences with Holiday Inn's have been good. This is not one to visit. I will research others as I will be spending time in the area over the next 2-3 years and will need to find one that meets my minimum requirements for cleanliness, and attention to details such as soap and tissues.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wcgers Great Staff!
We stayed for 5 nights. The room was always clean and made up nice. Comfortable beds, choice of pillows. Good breakfast and service. We had lots of questions about getting around in the city and what to see. I talked to the desk staff every evening and usually in the morning- probably about drove them crazy- but they were always very helpful and patient! Thanks to everyone for making our vacation enjoyable!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dbap1 A wonderful hotel!
We chose this hotel based on the fact it's a Holiday Inn Express. Without knowing anything about this particular hotel, we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of our stay. The staff was welcoming and friendly during our stay. We enjoyed using the pool, and we were happy to see that there was a shower for rinsing off! The breakfast was simply amazing, and the breakfast room staff were right there to make sure everything was fresh and that everyone had what they wanted/needed. I did give the sleep a little lower rating. Although there were an abundance of pillows in the room, I prefer a flatter pillow and all of the pillows were a little too full for my liking. I should bring my own, but didn't. Everyone else in my family did okay with the pillows. Over all, this was one of our best experiences in a hotel and we would both stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a great hotel!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Duane724 Hotel was to far from downtown and the linens on the bed were terrible.
Calling this property a Downtown hotel is misleading. I have stayed at downtown hotels before and this one was NOT downtown.
Busch Stadium, the casinos, and the Arch should be w/i walking distance and they were not.....
The sheets on the bed were clean but made something other than cotton for sure. Did not like them at all.
Have a nice day.
Most likely will not stay at Holiday Inns in the future.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TangoCharlie Uncomfortable bed and smelling rooms
This is the worst Holiday Inn express hotel I ever stayed. The rooms were smelling when we checked in. The beds were very uncomfortable and sofa bed was completely torn.
In the morning we found that our bathroom sink was clogged so I could not use that. I called up front desk and they cleared the clog but after few minutes of use it again clogged. Finally they give me another room key to use the bathroom. Rooms were pretty small with low ceiling.
I would recommend everyone to avoid this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by msjm14 Nice Hotel in up and coming area
First time in this Area in St. Louis, Was little concerned about some of the neighborhoods near Lemp Brewery where we attended a concert, but hotel was nice and we felt safe and weren't worried about our car in fenced parking lot. Area around hotel is apparently all being re-rehabbed or in the process of.
Not sure hotel should be billed as "downtown".
Staff were all exceptionally friendly.

Road weary after a long trip and late arrival, I received a very warm and welcome greeting, helpful assistance, and a clean, comfortable room. This was just what I needed for a short stay, to recharge the batteries for a big meeting the next day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cali Miami Gurrl St. Louis Holiday Inn Express is Fabulous
My family and I stayed at the St. Louis Holiday Inn Express Downtown and was greeted by a friendly staff. The accomodation in the hotel room and the morning breakfast was excellent.
The staff was courteous and helpful in giving directions with information on places to eat and sightsee.
While we were there a person interviewing for a job at this hotel mentioned places to eat and visit. Hope see got the job!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kate L. Comfortable hotel but issue with door left open after housekeeping cleaned room
I booked this hotel for a family event. I'm familiar with the area (former St. Louisian# and had no problems with it. Very friendly desk staff, clean room, never heard any traffic noise in my room, and the WiFi worked well.
Reason for giving experience and staff/service a fair rating? On Friday when I returned from a late lunch, the door to my room was standing open a couple of inches - it was very obvious from several feet away. I assumed the housekeeping staff was inside, since there was a duster propped outside the door. #please note the door to my room was very, very hard to open and close - you had to push/pull VERY hard on it#. I entered my room to find that yes, housekeeping had been in #trash emptied, fresh towels, bed made, etc.# but no one was in the room. When the staff member left the room, they didn't shut the door all the way!!!!!!
The first thing I did was check that my valuables that I had hidden in a place most people wouldn't think to check were still there #they were# and that there was no one behind the shower curtain #not paranoid - careful - anyone can walk into the hotel and seeing an open door could decide to wait for the guest to return and it was pretty obvious that a woman was staying there by herself#.
I calmed down, and realized I needed to change and get ready for the family event so waited until I left for the event to speak to the front desk. The woman I spoke to #unfortunatly don't remember her name but she checked me in on Thursday# was shocked that the staff would be that careless, and said that the manager and head of housekeeping were still there and she'd pass that along.
I would have asked to speak to them personally but only had a few minutes to get to the church. When I returned that night she was still behind the desk. She said she had alerted the manager and head of housekeeping; the staff would be reminded and the specific staff person would be spoken to.
I never heard from the manager about the situation - not even to apologize. I was soft spoken and courtous when speaking to the lady at the front desk; did not raise my voice, flip any tables or demand that my entire stay be comped. Given what could have happened, I did expect a call from the manager to apologize. My contact information #email and cell phone number) were included in the reservation so it's not as if s/he had no way to reach me.
This lack of concern on the manager's part for a guest's safety has me seriously reconsidering staying there in the future. I travel back to St. Louis several times a year for family events; I'm by no means a huge traveler, but I would perfer to have 1 hotel where I stay during each visit. This particular hotel is perfectly located for my needs.
