Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn - St. Louis Downtown at the Gateway Arch Saint Louis
Great Deal - Go for Some Hockey
This hotel had a great deal going on. The rooms were inexpensive, the breakfast was loved by the entire group. It is close to Union Station and the Metro Rail station. Perfect to take to a Hockey game - cheap too.
The indoor pool was great as well as the hot tub, and the staff let me know the pool area is usually fairly empty (they do employ a lifeguard). In fact the area was empty 2 of my 3 visits down to swim. The only problem was handled in a firm manner by the manager on duty, which I appreciated. She did not allow another group of guests to ruin my stay.
You can see the arch from the hallway. Parking is secured as well. The neighboorhood warrants this. Don't stray too far at night if you're alone.
Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of September. Requested a room with a view of the Arch, and that's exactly what I got. Rooms were clean and the front desk staff was very helpful. It was about a 3 minute walk to Laclede's Landing, and walking to Busch Stadium for the Cardinal game was no problem either. No complaints about this place, and when I come back to St. Louis, this hotel is my first choice.
The Best Hotel in St. Louis
Our Family went to St. Louis and stayed at the Hamton Inn Downtown at the Gateway Arch, and we had a spectacular time. The Service was extremely friendly, the deluxe complimentary breakfast was delicious. Our room was on the 15th floor, with a beautiful view of the Gateway Arch and the River. The hotel is kid-friendly. My children had loads of fun at the pool and arcade. I would, without a doubt reccomend this hotel to anybody who needs a place to stay in St. Louis. They have low a rates which is also a big positive!
I booked my room months in advance and asked for a river view room that I heard about on this site. I was told that "All our rooms have a river view". We were on the 5th floor and we had a brick wall view??? We were too tired and it was too late to ask for a different room. The next morning, at about 10:45AM, we wanted to walk over to the Gateway Arch. I asked my wife to put her purse in our car where it would be safe. 4 vehicles, including ours, had been vandalized in the hotel parking lot. When I went to the front desk, I was told that the police never came to investigate these thefts. They had a pre-printed sheet of a paper with a glass repair service that they always use for their recurring thefts. That was it. They never apoligized. They never asked if there was anything that they could do. We lost about $1300 in merchandise and had $1100 in vehicle damage. After we got home, I e-mailed the manager twice and got no answer. I finally sent an e-mail with a return receipt request and then I received an apoligy. That was it. I'm sorry does not cut it for all that we suffered through. If you value your property, your vehicle, or your own safety, please consider an alternate hotel.
I travel more than 60 nights a year on average, so I know a good hotel. this hotel is wonderful! Compared to the Embassy across the street, this hotel is top notch. Beautiful view o fthe arch, QUIET rooms, friendly staff, clean, comfortable rooms. If parking weren't $10/day, I would call this hotel the perfect place to stay.
Wonderful place to stay in St. Louis!
This was a GREAT hotel to stay at! When we checked in we asked if they had a room with a view of the arch. They were able to fill our request. And boy, what a view it was! Our room had a view of the Arch and the Mississippi River. What a site to see each night before bed and each morning when you wake up! It was awesome! As far as the rest of the hotel, the breakfast was good and had a nice variety, the business center was great to use (we went down and printed out driving directions from online to some of the local sites we wanted to see), and the rooms were clean and large! Most of the staff we encountered were wonderful, there was only one person that didn't seem to shine like the others. This hotel is great if you are going to any of the sporting events in St. Louis. We walked a short walk to Busch Stadium 3 nights for games and loved it. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
This is a great hotel at a great location! We came in late in the evening after driving 4 1/2 hours. Tired and hungry, we were looking forward to relaxing and getting to bed. The first thing we noticed walking into our room was the beautiful river view. The room was clean and comfortable; the staff helpful and courteous. The breakfast was plentiful, and had a nice variety of items. Although our stay was a short one, it was very pleasant. When in St. Louis again, we will stay at the Hampton Inn Downtown.
Nice place to stay
The location is great. Close to the Arch, Laclede's Landing, casinos, and the stadium. Nice parking arrangement in a downtown area that is short of parking spaces. The rooms were fresh and clean. The continental breakfast had a good variety with tasty options. Hotel security was top-notch. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to downtown St. Louis to catch a ballgame.
The staff at the Hampton Inn Dowtown St Louis were by far the friendliest yet professional of all the hotels we stayed at in the USA.
The hotel is fairly new, close to everything, just a few blocks from Laclede's Landing, train stop and the Gateway Arch. We had a great view of the Arch from our room window too. On-site parking is convenient, great rates, free breakfast, coffee and tea in the lobby. There's a small shop in the lobby for snacks and ice cream. There was even a mini fridge in the room! The pool and small games room would be great for kids (including big kids like us). Excellent hotel, a great find and would highly recommend it!
Not your average Hampton Inn!
Forget what you think a Hampton Inn should look like! This is a really nice hotel w/ free high-speed Internet. Right across the street from the Dome, Gateway Arch, and Leclede's Landing, this hotel has a great location. With the nice furniture, mini-fridge, marble bath and solid cherry doors, you don't realize you are actually in a Hampton Inn until you unwrap a plastic cup! Great views too!

Today we ride 187 ks to St Louis.
Today we only rode 100 miles to St Lewis (pronunciation).
We saw the Chain of Rocks Bridge and actually got permission to ride over it just like Billy Connelly as it is closed to the public.
Got some amazing photos of the Arch but to late to go up. Fantastic museum under ground beneath it …
It's hard to believe we are already in St. Louis, two-thirds of the way across the country and only ten days from the end of our road trip! :( So far it's been a blast and, other than my sandals falling apart, and my sunglasses breaking - but that's for tomorrow's entry, we haven't had any major problems. I highly recommend it to …
... looking at my phone when it happened! When we got almost to St. Louis, we got off the highway to go to a place called Malcolm W. Martin Memorial Park. I read this was the best spot to get a picture of the Arch and the St. Louis skyline. When we got there we had the place to ourselves so we got some great photos! We then got back on the road since we still had about 2 1/2 hrs ahead of us before our campsite for the night in the Mark Twain state park near Hannibal, ...
... you saw a little hole, there would be someone climbing into or out of it. There were all of these places that kids could go and be kids, they weren’t just expected to sit back and look. It was awesome!
After spending the first few hours there, we were defeated. I’m glad that we went in the morning, for by 1pm it was so crowded that we could barely move. We abandoned ship and went back to the hotel ...
... until we were about 50 miles outside of St. Louis. All of a sudden traffic seemed to double. Not sure where we were going and we had to follow Lola's directions and find a parking lot that could accommodate our size. So, I started calling to see what we could do. Our options are to park under a bridge or to park at the Casino Queen & RV Park. Now, if you don’t know about the Arch let me tell you what I do ...
