3.73km from Amsterdam TavernMy husband and I stayed Friday through Sunday. I booked this hotel because it was the most affordable at the time. I did read a lot of reviews prior which concerned me due to some reporting issues with cleanliness and that the area was sketchy. We arrived Friday early but spent time at the Science museum (which is free) to kill time because check in isn’t until 3pm and checking in early is a $25 fee. We arrived around 430pm and were promptly checked in by Kevin. We were supposed to stay in room 305 but our room keys would not work and Missy quickly changed us to room 310 after reporting that that room continually has that issue. The room was clean and smelled fine. The hotel is in an ok area, not somewhere you would wander. Anywhere in St. Louis you are at risk of having your car broken into and signs are posted all over the city regarding this so please make sure no belongings are left in the car (even phone chargers). We had no issues with our room other than the next day the room key wouldn’t work and we were told they accidentally forgot the additional day, but it was fixed in under 2 minutes. Check out was a breeze, you do have to check out before 11am or it is a $25 fee. A lot of people were there for the cardinals game, but it was quiet at night and we slept well. We never ate breakfast there so I cannot speak to that. Theirs no longer a pool. Would recommend for those looking for somewhere clean to sleep while they enjoy the city. It doesn’t have the extra amenities the other hotels do downtown, but you get what you pay for. All staff was very helpful and courteous.
