I have been commuting to St. Louis for work for over 3 years. It is difficult spending so much time away from my family but the staff at the Springwood certainly make it easier. One 2 occasions I was tempted away to other hotels with offers and bonuses as they strived to get our business. But they didn't make me feel as comfortable as the Springhill so I went right back next trip.
The hotel is next to the metro downtown making it convenient to get to the Arch and Busch Stadium, had plenty of eating options nearby and was just what I was looking for when finding a single night stay. The only dissapointment was the small pool as there wasn't enough room for kids to really swim around especially when other people were trying to do the same.
I expected a larger room, but it was adequate. One TV in the suite shared by the work area/sleeping area. Modern and comfortable. Very servicable wi-fi. I went back for seconds on breakfast: eggs, meats, potatoes, waffles, cereals, fruit.... Staff was friendly eager to help and prompt. Great restaurants closeby, including Houlihan's, one of my favorites.
Well located as really close to Forest Park (Zoo, etc) and downtown. Great breakfast and large room. Others pointed out the small swimming pool but I did not take it very seriously. The pool is EXTREMELY small...probably 12' x 15'. If your kids will want to do a lot of swimming then it's not a great spot for your family.
Check in was a breeze and they have plenty of carts available to bring our luggage to the room. The king suite was perfect for our family of four. Our two small children shared the sitting area giving us privacy. The shower was large and clean. The pool was small but my five year old son enjoyed it. The continental t breakfast was fabulous and different each day. It was also near a metro link station which was the best way to travel downtown.
I stayed at this hotel recently in order to help my daughters find an apartment to live in while at school this fall. This was a very busy weekend in St. Louis....there were St. Louis Cardinals home games, there were soccer tournaments, volley ball tournaments, and an Elite Track Meet at one of the local universities...so the hotel was very busy. The receptionists at the front desk were very friendly and extremely helpful to me giving me directions and maps and finding offices/phone numbers during my apartment search. I am very grateful for all of their help.
Pros: Nice big bathroom and shower Bed was pretty comfy. Flat screen TV Seperate sitting area Mini fridge and microwave was convenient Pretty quiet Friendly Staff Cons The room set up was weird. Bed in one spot then a wall #40in fog#41 that seperates you from the sitting area. The vanity are was small. There is no ATM at this hotel. You have to go across the street to the shopping plaza. Little closet space. The breakfast was ok but not much of a variety. In room coffee was gross. And the pot was not user friendly.
We LOVE this place! We have stayed there 3 times! It is great with kids and close enough to the Zoo and the Galleria for shopping. We love eating at Houlihan's next door and would love to try the little cafe across the street too sometime. We can't wait to go back again. Our only complaint is that the pool is WAY too tiny and we can never get in- it is always packed. I think it is about 10 or 15 feet square. I think only about 6 people fit in it! So that is always disappointing for the kids- but everything else is great. We also love the fee breakfast! The Belgian waffles are so much fun and the kitchen are is really well stocked! I suggest going early- by 7:30 it is already busy. The staff does a great job and is very accomodating. We have reqested a pack and play and that worked out fantastic- they even had a sheet and crib blanket - I thought that was perfect- our son loved it! He really liked having his own bed away from home! The rooms are really spacious and we had so much room. They are so nice and clean. The rooms are very nicely decorated too! We really liked having the kitchenette too with kids and all of the food and milk we travel with for them while dining out. This is a fantastic place- you willl LOVE it! I wish we could stay here once a month!
Hotel was great! Breakfast (lots to choose from) was hot and yummy! Pool was a bit small, no hot tub. Beds were firm but the rooms were nicely decorated and spacious. Would probably stay at another Springhill Suites. Front desk was very helpful and had a list of nearby restaurants with directions and distance from hotel. The Magic House is worth a visit!!!!!!
This was a gorgeous hotel. Great decor and location. It was very close to anything you would want or need. Only 15 minutes from downtown so you're away from the chaos but close enough to get down there. Staff was friendly and rooms were fantastic. Great breakfast (free) and free wireless. Free covered parking garage, gym and pool (indoor). I was VERY pleased.
