Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Built in 1924 in what was formerly the Mayfair Hotel, what’s now the Magnolia Hotel St. Louis was once a destination for the moneyed elite. The hotel hosted Hollywood luminaries including Douglas Fairbanks and Cary Grant, composer Irving Berlin and past U.S. presidents Harry S. Truman and Lyndon B Johnson.

In addition to historic memories, most of the original architectural details remain. Detailed woodwork, coffered ceilings and leaded glass windows are elegant without feeling outdated. Custom patterned rugs and updated lighting and artwork blend new and old. Rooms are on the smaller size as befits a hotel dating back to the '20s, but past guests rave on TripAdvisor about the comfy pillowtop beds and soothing cream and canary-yellow color palette.

Business travelers staying here can hit the snooze button; the sprawling America’s Convention Center is a three-minute walk around the corner. No trip to St. Louis is complete without a look at the iconic Gateway Arch, 15 minutes by foot from the hotel.

Peek in at the hotel’s ballroom and you’re likely to find a wedding party celebrating in the expansive two-story space perfect for partying. Floor-to-ceiling windows have glittering views of downtown, and crystal chandeliers dangle below an second-floor balustrade.

After spying on the happy couple and friends, get a bite to eat at on-site Robie’s, named for the character Cary Grant played in “To Catch a Thief.”

Enjoyed Most: location
Other Comments: They definitely need to pay more attention to cleanliness in the rooms. There was food residue on my wall, a square container dust mark on the nice chair and someone's hair trimmings on the tissue box. I repositioned the trash cans to where I used them at the sink and at the coffee counter. With the auto temp set on 73 (!?) the feather duvets are OVERKILL and their lumpiness makes the bed look like someone just got out of it. The bedspread, which was GREAT, was perfect with the sheet. The bar was very nice as a bar, but the tables and some of the seating were not really conducive to eating. The food that I had was good. Thank you for a nice evening and breakfast.

Enjoyed Most: Rooms decorated and arranged as advertised.
Other Comments: Room and restaurant were uncomfortably warm - no communication as such at checkin. Only advice was to turn the thermostat off and let it naturally regulate. Breakfast was on par with a motel and at complete odds with a boutique hotel.
