This place was top of the line.   It had amazing staff very helpful and nice.  It is very trendy and has some awesome decor.   There is a outside fireplace in which we spent some time at.  The price is very affordable, located right next to SLU, When I go back to STL I will Be staying here!

This was our Hotel for our Wedding which was held at The Sheldon Concert Hall. The location is awesome, the staff is amazing and the Director of Sales, Rachel, that we worked with, was great. They were so accommodating and sweet, all of our guests were impressed with the hotel which represented St. Louis well.

What an adorable hotel!

My stay here was a Vday surprise from J since it is connected to Triumph which happens to be where we met. I was impressed from the moment we walked in with the modern decor, everywhere I turned there was something else cool to look at. I was also very impressed with the rooms, they were simple but very modern. I loved that all of the room service menus, activities, etc were on a tablet instead of having books lying around with the information. They are a pet friendly hotel and that made things a whole lot easier so we did not have to find a pet sitter for the evening. Our dog made himself at home and enjoyed exploring our home for the night. Really my only complaint is that in the middle of the night I woke up and could hear EVERYTHING from the room right above me and the room below me. One of the rooms was having an argument and the other room just the opposite, it made it a little difficult to get back to sleep. Besides the noise, it was definitely a cute, modern place to stay away from home.

One of the best hotels in the St. Louis Area by far. A bit pricier than most, but it was new, nice and clean. They had Philosophy bath products when I was there not L'Occitane, but I love Philosophy. The beds were Tempurpedic or that style. The room had character and I certain would stay there again.

What an incredible experience we had here. All of the previous reviews are correct. The decor is beautiful, the tempurpedic bed is awesome, the rain shower is cool, etc. From the minute we got to the hotel until the moment we departed, it was a great experience. Kate at the front desk was super helpful and friendly. Dmitry took over for her later and was awesome. Kentucky was at the front bar and is the nicest person EVER. We really hit it off with her...she is funny, helpful, and nice.

Normally, I like to move around and experience other hotels, restaurants, etc., but I think we found a winner and won't risk staying anywhere else. We highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again when we are in town.

Great rooms and I love the lobby bathroom.  I mean its so serene like sitting in a victorian era cave while a baby deer laps guava nectar from your shoulder blades.  I withhold my constitution and then fortnightly I visit these green pastures and unleash my "harvest".  Nothing compares to my six hour otherworldy adventure in the annals of the hotel lobby where sweet vessels of relief venture up from my bowels to my spine and break like sweet waves in the form of goosebumps on my jawline.  
Great customer service too!   Would reccomend!

What a find!  Staying here while interviewing at SLU for a job.  Looks like a quiet little on campus spot that would be great to stay at if you are seeing a show at the Fox (just around the corner).  
The whole place is a refurbished older building with lots of character updated to a modern style.  I really loved the decor and use of the old character pieces like the exposed brick.  My room was lovely, looked brand new.  Very clean.  
Minor complaints:  the shower is a rainshower head, looks very pretty, kind of not the best water pressure.  I survived though.  the room is not huge.  It was perfectly fine for just me.  Might be tight for more than one or two people.
Philosophy bath products, very nice.  some sort of super tech phone system in the room that had my name on it.  I left that baby alone before I accidentally broke it!  :)
Parking is just across the street behind the hotel in a lot held for guests, worked fine, about $9 a night.  Desk staff very welcoming and easy to talk to.  
Free internet!  connect to the slu system.  Love that.

I recently attended a concert at the Chaifetz Arena on the campus of St. Louis University. Having no knowledge of the area, I googled mapped the closes hotel to the arena. I wanted something within walking distance so I wouldn't have to rent a car. Hotel Ignacio was the closest, and at reasonable $169 (for a boutique hotel), I booked it immediately.

Check-in is at 4:00 p.m., but my flight was to land in St. Louis at 10:30 a.m., so I called ahead to see if early check-in was a possibility. The front desk agent was very friendly, and assured me it would be no problem. Sure enough, when I arrived the day of check-in at 11:30 a.m., my room was ready.

The hotel is beautiful. Very modern, with great art and stylish furnishings. My room was spacious, and I was happy that my particular room was decorated with paintings of guitars and other music-themed pieces. Very rock n roll. :)

The room was spotless. Nice, large flat screen television on the wall. Super modern iPad-type phone system with hotel and area information. Philosophy bath products!!!

I ordered room service for breakfast the morning I departed. The food was great (and surprisingly reasonably priced) and service was fast. Check-out was a breeze.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough if you are looking to stay in downtown St. Louis. I wish there were more across the country!

I loved the very large rooms with great art work above each bed and throughout the halls and lobby.  I am handicapped and front desk staff personally assisted me with my luggage and politely refused my over tipping.  I enjoyed my hotel stay even more than the Book of Mormon play I saw during my visit to St Louis.

Beautiful and unique, excellent value for the price, but glitches:  poor soundproofing meant loud neighbors had us awake, took a loooong time for the front desk to answer the phone let alone quiet the party; coffee maker didn't work ; really dirty air filter in a cabinet that fell open when passed.  I wanted to love it! But I liked it a lot and will try again.

I'd gone to St. Louis to visit with a friend who's daughter was appearing in BIlly Elliot at the Fox theatre and tried to find a hotel close by.  In searching online, the closest place was Hotel Ignacio.  At first they were booked but I tried back and was able to get a room.  Boy am I glad a room opened up.  This place is fantastic!  It's very artsy as it's in the arts district but what's even better is that it's not snooty.  All of the staff that we encountered were super nice and courteous.   The room that we had was very tastefully furnished, up to date and high end.  If I'm ever in St Louis again, I'll only stay at Hotel Ignacio.

In STL for one night for a concert at The Fabulous Fox Theatre. Stayed at Hotel Ignacio because it is walking distance from the venue. Customer service was excellent. Guest services made me feel very welcome and appreciated. However, the room itself was a little disappointing. The carpet was quite stained and the furniture was obviously worn in spots. The chair at the desk still had crumbs in it from the prior guest - so I imagine the room wasn't cleaned well enough. I did like the funky embellishments and artsy decor of the room itself. The bed was very comfortable, however, the bed/box spring did not fit correctly on the bed frame. The bathroom was snazzy, but far too small; and I might be nitpicking, but the toilet paper was the kind you get from the dollar store. There was no mini-fridge or coffee maker in the room. You can request them. I expect more for $200 a night ...and I rightfully should.

WOW!  This hotel is amazing.  Olive Street used to be a spotty locale.  But its become much more uppity in the past couple of years and that's a good thing.  Located right across the street from SLU, Hotel Ignacio is an amazing boutique hotel.  It's trendy and has a ton of character for being a new place.  I got a suite with a shower that had 5 shower heads...I felt like I was in a car wash, and my bathroom had a tv in its mirror.  Plus the living room had a mirror that alas is an LED TV too.  AND, its pretty cool to throw on a swank fireplace with a flip of a remote.  Oh and my bedroom has automatic shades, a 42" LED TV and a temperpedic bed.

This hotel gets it right.  At breakfast, they have Kindles you can borrow with the news on it.  And the lounge/attached restaurant are pretty trendy.  Plus you can go work out at SLU for free.

I'd definitely go back.

A nice boutique hotel with high quality amenities and art you might even hang in your own home! The wedding we were attending had essentially taken over the entire hotel for the weekend (40 of 48 rooms!) , so we shared with my boyfriend's twin brother and girlfriend.

Our room was perfectly suitable for 4 people - two comfortable tempurpedic beds, enough space for luggage, plenty of towels in the bathroom. And while the bathroom itself was quite enjoyable with a rainfall shower head and good bath products, I have to talk about the door. The door, you say? Yes. The door.

While It fits with the modern feel of the hotel, but having a slide door for the loo is probably the worst idea ever. No sound insulation, a smallish gap between the door and the wall, Hotel Ignacio was trying to bring this group waaaay closer than we ever intended. We resorted to the very un-green method of turning on the shower for a little #2 privacy.

All in all, a good place to stay while in STL, but maybe we think about adding earplugs to your suitcase - unless you and your partner are into each others fart sounds. No judgments.

Loved this hotel! We stayed here for a friend's wedding for 1 night in March. The hotel has a very resort-like modern feel. The temper-pedic bed and pillows were AMAZING and the lighting was fun and dimmed usefully. They had tablets in each room for room service, checkout, weather info, and more. I would definitely stay here again!

Checked into this hotel on a whim and it's an interesting and different type of hotel I normally stay in. Would categorize as a hip type of hotel. Room was nice, bed was a foam mattress and I slept like a rock. Bathroom was large with walk in shower and shower head above you. Was very comfortable in the room. Prob not a place to bring your kids. Negatives were the coffee was cold in the morning, I don't think you get free breakfast, and it took me 20 minutes to check in at midnight. May or may not stay here again.  Trendy type of place for younger adult crowd.

Four stars, but someday they'll be five stars, double their rates, and will outprice me. Until then though, I'll keep going back because this place really is a stand-out in St. Louis and many other cities I've been to.

Hotel Ignacio is a boutique hotel that offers a contemporary decor in a decades old brick building. Super modern in-room communication systems connect you with the hotel staff, local weather, restaurants, and more via a digital display like a small computer monitor.

Flat screen tvs are "hidden" in picture frames on the wall, making them apparent only if you want them to be, if your not a tv watcher, they pretty much seem invisible.

The memory foam beds are amazing, enormous tile showers with ceiling "rain" fixtures are thoughtful and swanky, the lobby his/her bathroom is fantastic (don't worry, it still offers all the privacy you'll need - only the wash area is shared.), the lobby lounge area reminds me of the W in Chicago, and the hotel restaurant and bar is really a restaurant of it's own.

All this for a price in the low $100's but I have to believe this will go up as they build a fan base. Go now while you can get a boutique hotel experience for the price of a Courtyard by Marriott.

Rooms are very modern, minimalist, and hi tech. The beds were Tempurpedic, that was a treat.  Everyone we met was cordial and helpful, just like it should be in a boutique hotel.  Wireless is strong, free, and consistent.  Shower stall is on large side, with rain style shower head.  Parking is self serve, we got the 12$ rate comped for our group.  Nice breakfast in the lobby, but service was slow as the kitchen is next door in the pub.  Pub is nice, and busy.  We'd return.

The overnight service at this hotel was extraordinarily rude and unprofessional.  There was no phone in the room and the computer device that was supposed to act as a phone and room service menu was broken so I called the front desk on my cell phone to ask for the room service menu.  The night clerk told me the only way to get breakfast was to come downstairs at 7am. I asked if he could bring me a room service menu.  Instead of saying sorry, or I can bring one up right now, he simply hung up on me. I then called back and he screamed and then hung up. I have never been treated this way. I will never return to this hotel.

It looks nice and cosy, but the service and staff are awful. Don't expect a smooth relaxing stay at this place. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Beautiful decor in a fantastically fun hotel providing the alternative to mass cattle hotels.  Close distance to great coffee shops, local cuisine, the brewery, the Zoo, and shares space with a motorcycle store ... thank you.

Not feature rich, but a wonderful hotel when going to or driving through St. Louis.

I have never written a yelp review but because this place was so poorly staffed and poorly ran, I am sharing this in order that it might help other people from the same experience--or even better--that it might give a clue to this hotel to make some major improvements.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone or waste my money here if you understand quality and expect it at a certain price.. I wish I would have paid the extra 100 to stay at the Westin where at least they understand what it means to be in the hospitality industry, even if their decor is more traditional.

Lovely boutique hotel, friendly staff, convenient to major roadways and to the famous Pappy's barbeque -- but not much else (of interest) walkable nearby, just FYI. It is a quick and easy drive east to downtown, or west to the Forest Park/Delmar Loop area.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Ignacio, which offered free wifi, inexpensive parking with in-and-out-privileges, and a decent cafe/restaurant attached. The rooms were modern and stylish, clean and comfortable. Gorgeous materials (like the tiles and light fixtures) with quirky touches of personality. Definitely pleased my sense of aesthetics and impressed me with the attention to details. The Tempurpedic beds were quite good, but I would have appreciated a flat pillow in addition to all the poofy down ones. I loved the shower head (but not everyone will) as well as the Philosophy bathroom products. Free water and coffee by the elevators was a nice touch -- helped us stay alert and keep hydrated over the busy holiday weekend.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, but I do think you get a different impression of St. Louis than you would if you stayed downtown. Hotel Ignacio is in a quiet neighborhood in a corner of St. Louis University, so you're not seeing any city bustle. Nor the Arch. But on the plus side, we weren't assaulted by July 4th fireworks all weekend. Also the area might be different when school is in session.

Tip: Hotel Ignacio sits right at the place where Olive St. and Lindell Ave. fork. Both cars in our party did not see the driveway, went right past, and had to turn around (and I was even using GPS!). The sign for Cafe Pinxtos is easier to see than the sign for the hotel itself.

Went to a concert at The Pageant and found this cute little hotel on SLU campus. While the hotel only has about 50 rooms the experience is like staying in an art museum. The beds are the BEST! We felt like we were in a city condo. Very inexpensive and the staff is well informed about city recommendations.
