Historic grande dame in designer duds with huge rooms, a popular restaurant and prime downtown location
The most design forward of biz-travel favorite Magnolia hotels, this St. Louis spot occupies the former Mayfair Hotel, where Cary Grant wooed a guest by leaving a trail of chocolates from the hotel bar to his pillow. The incident was said to have inspired the now universal hotel trend of chocolates on the pillow at turndown. Beyond the historic facade, the grand lobby makes a good first impression with double-height ceilings, enormous chandeliers and white colonnades, but guest rooms, by contrast, have a more homey vibe and a soothing white, gray and yellow palette. All come with faux leather headboards, glass lamps, two-tone wood furnishings and custom taupe carpets, plus essentials like WiFi, work desks, tea and coffee makers, and vanity mirrors in the tile bathrooms. The hotel restaurant, Robie’s, is named for Cary Grant’s character in To Catch a Thief, and offers contemporary American fare in a glam dining room that retains the building’s original stained-glass window. The hot breakfast buffet is included in the rate, while lunch and dinner options cover the culinary spectrum from soups and salads to pizzas and decadent desserts.
In the Area
St. Louis locals will find any excuse to drink beer, and why not when you can sample more than 20 local craft brews. Order a pint of the single hop English pale ale while at Urban Chestnut, go to Schlafly Bottleworks for their pilsner, and throw back an ice-cold Bud after touring (for free!) the heavenly hops-scented Anheuser-Busch factory. Walk through the 1,371-acre Forest Park, or rent a cruiser through Discovery Bikes for a leisurely ride along the charming riverfront, lined with art galleries, clothing boutiques and the iconic Gateway Arch. Continue your westward expansion to Pappy’s Smokehouse, where the Memphis-style ribs rival St. Louis barbecue, or join the locavore crowd for a farm-fresh, four-course meal at the Local Harvest Cafe.
