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...."
Decent Stay With Some Problems
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.
Our main problems, besides the cramped bathrooms, were as follows: one of the bathroom sinks gave off an unpleasant odor; the windows of the suite were not well insulated and so the blinds and drapes were suspended in midair when it became windy because outside air was blowing into the room; one of the heating systems in the bedroom was very noisy and difficult to sleep with; the room service breakfast was quite bad - much grease and the food tasted like it had been cooked quite a bit earlier that morning, the room service dinner was below average but certainly edible; the Marquee Cafe had bad service and bad food.
On the plus side, the Tenderloin Restaurant in the hotel had excellent food with good service. The hotel is very grand but you get the impression that the $130,000,000 put into renovations several years back was not enough for a hotel of that size and age. This is a hotel that has the potential of being a great hotel, but I think it's one that will remain "not quite there."
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.
Love, Love, Loved It!!!
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.

Today another great morning. Had breakfast at the lodge and were on the road by 8. We wanted to go to Bo's Hollow today first and then Akers 2 car ferry because Bo's was only 3 miles from the lodge. Bo's did not open until 10 so we ran over to Akers car ferry first and then back tracked to Bo's. The ferry had a toll of $4 and I was the only one that put my car on. The operator ran me across the river and then I got off and turned around and got right back on to ...

We wound up in a bit of a sticky wicket at Vail, Colorado. Track repairs were required because of falling rocks which caused a better than four hour delay. This meant that Hertz, where we'd arranged to pick up a car in Chicago, would be closed when we arrived. There was no internet on the train and we three happen to be the only cell phone-less people in North America. But someone ...

... why have old buildings in a city when you can have miles of surface parking lots and empty space? At least that was the ethos of mid-tentieth century urban renewal. When I'm in places like Saint Louis the developer wannabe in me always fantasizes about what could be – what great opportunities there are for redevelopment, to build nice things where there once had been nice things and could be again, not unlike what’s been taking place in LoDo and ...
