How to Get There
Rooms renovated but lobby needs work. Cleaning so-so. Wi-if non-existent in room.
Staff helpful. Breakfast room crowded and hard to maneuver in. Nice to have a Starbucks on the property. Lots of unique furnishings.
This hotel is very close to a lot of St. Louis' attractions, but I kind of just wanted to stay at the hotel the whole time. The staff was very courteous and helpful. And the lounging areas are so cozy!
The place has a unique decor. The internet service there is poor. I couldn't access it in most of my room, I had to huddle by the door to get it to work. The chair at the desk wasn't adjustable so it was untenable to do much typing. Breakfast there is so-so, literally couldn't eat the eggs way too watery. When I noticed that a dinner that was supposed to be charged to my room wasn't I called and found out they had some technical problem that was affecting many customers where charges weren't being applied. But they didn't proactively reach out to let us know. Imagine filing an expense report and closing it out only to have this charge show up unexpectedly wherein you may not be able to get it re-imbursed. But that's what I mean, not business friendly.
I stayed at The Cheshire the first weekend in May, 2019. I booked through Priceline for a very fair value. I knew this was an old hotel having spent a night there 35 years ago. When I arrived I was greeted warmly by the staff, especially Justin Howard who seemed to be working every time I was in the lobby! I was informed the rooms had been updated since my last stay, but it appeared that the lobby had not. It still had an old world European charm, albeit, a bit worn. The gathering areas were unique with antiques throughout and a large, stuffed grizzly bear. The hallways to the rooms were very much like the hallways of the Inns I have stayed at in England; no windows and lined with art (portraits, landscapes, etc.). I did get the feeling my hall was out of the movie "The Shining". I expected the little girls to ask me to come play!!! However, my room was updated, the bed was comfortable, the bath was adequate, and the heating and hot water were plentiful. The walls were rather thin and I could hear my next door neighbors in the mornings and evenings but it didn't bother me and I used my phone app to block their conversations. I visited The Fox and Hound Pub one evening and had a delicious Cosmopolitan. The bar was hopping and the clientele looked to be in their 20's and 30's. Check out was easy, parking adequate with a few spaces above ground and two floors of parking beneath the hotel, breakfast and wifi were free. The breakfast was a little better than you would find at a chain. They offered scrambled eggs and ham (not processed, the real thing, although a bit dry) a variety of breads, sweet rolls, and beverages one morning, and scrambled eggs and pancakes the next. All in all I thought it was a very pleasant stay and a unique property.
Billed as a “British boutique” hotel and there is some resemblance to an English hotel or manor. The Cheshire Inn pays homage to British literary figures and monarchs. Rooms are named after British writers and poets. The business center room is covered with Queen Elizabeth pictures. All the other walls are blanketed with countless number of old English style art and artifacts. The bar is a cross between an English pub and gentleman’s club adorned with hunting trophies. All the interesting decorations allow you to overlook some of the shortcomings of the hotel. Bathrooms are small, the rooms/decor is dated and the woodwork could use some fresh paint. The wireless internet needs to be constantly renewed on your mobile devices. Nonetheless, the place is unique, comfortable and the “decay” is part of the charm. The fitness center is well equipped and maintained. While not advertised, dog are allowed in this property for a $30 per stay charge.
