Great location with charm
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My husband and I stayed here for a quick trip through St. Louis. The location is perfect: so close to Forest Park (the zoo, museums, and so much more), easy access to the expressways, and local restaurants (plus those on site). The hotel has such a fun and unique theme. It is quite funny but still decently well done. Our room was a good size (King room) and the bathroom was also fine. There was not much counterspace. However, there was a nice shelving unit that made up for that. We had no issues with self-parking. Breakfast was very good and we appreciated the onsite Starbucks. We would recommend staying here and will likely stay here again if in St. Louis.

Great location lovely accommodations!

Great location. Wonderful decor and a taste of History. You can learn some history and view some lovely antique furniture throughout the inn.
Staff was helpful convenient to so many attractions of St Louis. Very nice breakfast. Fox and Hounds Lounge is very nice. at first I thought everything was a little heavy and overdone until I realized how much of it was real and how few reproductions there were and how nicely it was curated. We will stay here again.

You might want to reconsider . . . .

The Cheshire Inn itself is located on a busy city street, and can be difficult to enter or exit during rush hour. Parking is limited, and a daily parking fee is charge.

The hotel room where we stayed was quiet, clean and well-kept when we arrived. Amenities such as coffee and water were supplied.

The toilet, we found, was very low in height, which might be good for 5-year olds, but not for adults. There is no safety bar on the tub/shower.

The Housekeeping service left something to be desired during our stay. On the second day our room was partially cleaned, amenities were not replenished, and used towels were left on the floor of our room. The third day, the room had not been cleaned by 5 pm, and when I went to inquire at reception, they said they would have it cleaned, and would offer a partial refund for the inconvenience. A staff member finally arrived at 5:30 pm to clean the room. On check-out the next morning, a staff member said there wouldn't be a refund after all, since they resolved the issue.

Our friends stayed at another excellent hotel nearby and did not have these issues. You might want to reconsider staying at Cheshire; avoid the hassle.

I have stayed at the Cheshire before and had a perfectly reasonable experience, so when I had to come back to St. Louis to deal with a family matter I booked again. I could not have been more disgusted. Within the space of a week, my room was not cleaned half of the days, and when it was "cleaned," after multiple requests to the totally disinterested front desk staff, it was barely cleaned at all. When my towels were finally replaced, I was given "new" ones which appeared to be stained with feces, as indeed were my "new" sheets. I cut my foot on what appeared to be staples barely holding the wall to wall carpet to the floor, the air conditioning did not work, and again, the desk staff appeared to be completely uninterested in addressing any of these issues, save to offer to check me out immediately so they could, in their own words, resell my room, which was prepaid. This place is completely dirty, disgusting, and frankly unsafe, and the staff is totally uninterested in addressing any concerns, to the point that any reasonable person would lose their temper. I spent almost $200/night and had to walk out less than halfway into my booking because I could not spend another night in this dump, being talked to and treated like a piece of garbage. What is garbage is finding actual human sh!t on your supposedly new towels.

Unique hotel, very friendly staff

Fun, unique hotel with very friendly staff. Fox and hound bar in the hotel is a great place to have a drink. Easy parking, comfortable beds and a nice breakfast. Rooms each have their own theme which adds to this hotels character.
