    Very nice stay and location near WashU

    I'll be booking here often now that my daughter started attending WashU. It's a few minutes away and very nice and not expensive. I got a double queen on the 6th floor and the room was very spacious and had wood flooring instead of the normal carpet flooring that we usually see in hotels. The bathroom had both a bath and shower and I love the flush on the toilet...definitely no way to clog it :) They're like flushing in an airplane. Sorry back to the room. The cable TV had a lot of stations so if you happen to be staying in, there's a lot of variety in what to watch. The wifi was nice and strong and I was able to stream and have zoom meetings. I also like the decor of the hotel being very traditional with some nice big chandeliers in the lobby. The staff was nice although I did see one of them walking around with a face mask but under his mouth so not very useful but everything looked and felt clean. I visited my daughter during the weekend so parking was free. Overall a good place to stay

    Really beautiful room.

    Really beautiful room. The bathroom was amazing and the vanity sink outside the bathroom was a nice plus. Nice hardwood floors. Very clean room. Still undergoing remodeling but were given good directions on how to get to the parking garage and rooms. Much more than I expected for a really good price. The lobby is beautiful and the breakfast bar was really good.

    Great Stay!

    I had booked this hotel in February through a non refundable site. Even though the Rolling Stones concert was postponed, we decided to use our hotel stay. Oh my, I am so glad we went. Our room was SO clean and updated. We had a fridge and microwave in our room. With Covid 19, the pool and exercise room was closed. The breakfast buffet was not an option, but they did have a list of things you could get to go. Paris was great checking us in. Max was awesome too. He gave us a free shuttle to a bar around the corner. You could smell how clean the hotel was and the elevator was sanitized often. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Good stay

    This was a nice hotel.  My room was big and comfortable, and the area is safe and nice with a lot of restaurants. Breakfast was good too.The only shame is that they do not advertise a free shuttle bus to/from the airport. I sent an email asking about transportation from the airport a couple of days before my arrival, but  I never got a reply. The hotel's website didn't contain information on this either as far as I checked at that time. I wasted my money and time by looking for and using alternative transportation. I used the shuttle bus on my way back from the hotel to the airport and it was smooth.

    great location

    this downtown Clayton hotel is in a great location. The rooms are nice sized and the free breakfast is hot and outstanding . I think the hotel is a bit dated but not problematic. Service is excellent and many bars and restaurants in the area walking distance .
