... and they questioned Bilbo because all the knights knew where to find Shrek. The knights drew their swords and were about to fight Bilbo when another knight came in and said that Fiona and Donkey were spotted inside the castle. The knights forgot about Bilbo and left immediately. Bilbo asked around the tavern and no one knew where Shrek was except this cat named Puss in ...
... away. They needed Bilbo because he had a special ring that allowed him to transform into different people and they were hoping to have him transform into Lord Farquaad and find out where Shrek was. Bilbo declined because he was scared that he might get hurt but also thought of his smelly, mean neighbor that always yelled at him. So ...
... up, my good friend Brad took me to the Budweiser brewery where we saw where the magic is made, a few Clydesdales, and got two free beers. If you're ever in St. Louis take the Budweiser tour, it's a free tour and you get two free beers at the end to boot. Or if you just want free drinks go too, you don't even have to take the tour to get them. Fun Fact: our tour guide claimed that they brew 2 billion gallons of beer at a time at the St. Louis brewery. Anyone want to fact check her ...

The next stop was Cahokia Mounds, a major center for the Native American Mississippian culture from 900 - 1500 BC. Again, due to cold, damp conditions, we didn't explore the area on foot but took some time to visit the museum. We were pleasantly surprised at what we learned, never knowing or hearing about these mounds.

... for a bit (amazing how exhausting drinking & eating is). The park is huge and has all sorts within it so we took a walk down to the planetarium and had a look round. When we headed downtown it was all a bit strange - everything seemed deserted and there was a really eerie feeling about the place. We saw the gateway but not much else. We walked round for ages trying to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chase Park Plaza Saint Louis
Not for Newly Weds
I am a St Louis native, but had lived outside the city for the 10 years before my wedding. We stayed at the Chase for our wedding night, and none of my family was clued in to how much the hotel had deteriorated.
Fast forward to our wedding anniversary. We wanted to stay in the newly rehabbed Chase to "re do " our wedding night. But the front desk staff was so indifferent about helping us make this special, I took a pass.
Fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice...."
Overall, we had a good experience in the Chase Park Plaza Hotel. We stayed in the 2 room suite at a rate of $289.00 per night. The suite had a main room with a kitchen, dining, and sitting areas with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There was a television in the main room, and also in both bedrooms - making a total of 3 television sets in the suite. The bathrooms were very small (only one person can fit in the bathroom at any one time) and the toilet was very near the wall giving a cramped feel while using the toilet. The rooms were well kept - with the only exception of the dining table which was not cleaned until the third day of our stay. The beds were comfortable with nice pillows.
Fablous New Year's Dinner
My husband and I just spent a magnificient evening at The Chase Park Plaza for their New Year's celebration. We has a fabulous five course dinner at the Eau Bistro. The food was excellent. We really noticed a difference with their new head Chef. The suite was beautiful and the staff was very friendly. This is the second year we spent with the Chase Park Plaza and we look forward to the year's to come. This truly is a St. Louis landmark!
we had several dissapointments at the "Chase". my greatest is that when i told the girl at check-out she just shrugged, ... our room was suppose to be a king, but wasn't, the furnace was so noisey that when it came on, it woke us up, the service in the eu bistro restaurant was as bad as i've had in a long time! I can chalk up my other problems to it being New Year's Eve, but the lack of concern on the staff was the ultimate insult. ! NEVER AGAIN. ! i told her i was going to put my review on trip advisor, that didn't phase her either.
Everything about our stay at the Chase Park Hotel either met or exceeded our expectations. From the grandeur of the hotel, to the excellent service from all of the staff, to the comfort and cleanliness of the room, everything made our stay a very pleasant one. We stayed in a one bedroom suite that was what you could actually say was a one bedroom suite. It had a fully equipped kitchen, living area, bedroom, walk-in closet, washer and drier, and bathroom. We had breakfast and lunch at the Marquee Cafe and both were very good and very well priced for a hotel. Although we didn't attend one, the hotel has it's own (I believe 5 screen) movie theater. The hotel is also very accessible to the many attractions in and around St. Louis and walking distance to a number of restaurants and a gourmet grocery market.
My wife and I had one of those rare opportunities to get away for a night without the three blessings known as our children. After searching around we decided on the Chase Park Plaza. This was intended to be a special night and the hotel fully lived up to our expectations.
We had one of the one room suites and I would strongly recommend spending the little extra these cost. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are in great shape and the location worked very well for our purposes.
The immediate neighborhood has several nice restaurants and the park across the street is beautiful. Parking was easy and reasonable for a luxury hotel. My wife and I are not in a big spending stage of life but this hotel made us feel special and allowed our one night out to be fun and enjoyable.
Nice rooms - bad restaurant
We spent 3 nights in this very large hotel, in June 2003. Our room was particularly spacious, with a full-featured kitchen, washing machine and dryer. Room clean and confortable, but small bathroom. Overall positive. On the down side: breakfast was not included, and service in the Eau-Bar apalling. No buffet, food so-so and particularly expensive for what you get. We had two slices of greasy paneed ham with a couple of slices of bread for 15USD, and waited 15 minute for this. My advice: stay away from the Eau-bar and walk 50 yds to the nearby Euclid Ave.
where you will find Starbucks and several other eating places that are much nicer and cheaper!
We had a ball
Went to chase park for a ball, their reception space was very nice with a very large stage for a band. The drinks were kind of pricey but standard for the city. The decor of the hotel is very elegant, and the service was good. THe hotel has valet parking, or else you have to park kind of far away. THe room was fairly priced ($180) and featured a kitchen and dining room. However it did feel a bit cramped and the bathroom was quite small. And don't bother with cafe eau's $30 brunch unless you are a big fan of cold seafood in the morning. The brunch offered little variety in entree dishes. Overall one of the most elegant of st. louis hotels to stay in. Located in a fun and historic park of town.
My Boyfriend recently surprised me with a romantic weekend at the Chase Park Plaza. The hotel was absolutly beautiful. We stayed in a lavish suite. The package included roses, champagne and breakfast in bed. I would highly recommend this hotel to others. We had a wonderful experience.
A wonderful place to stay!
A beautiful grand old hotel. Very spacious rooms and an accomodating staff made my stay most enjoyable! Will definately stay there again when in St.Louis.
