    This place is probably one of the greatest values for your money.  I stayed at the Pear Tree Inn just this past weekend (2/6-2/7).  I believe I paid $70 for my room.  The staff was super friendly.  The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable.  What makes this one of the best values for your money is they have a happy hour at night and you get three free drinks.  Also they have this outstanding breakfast buffet in the morning which is all complimentary.  Not to mention you can make free phone calls.  What hotel does that.  Well I am staying here for sure on my next visit down to St. Louis.  What a great experience.

    I am normally a huge fan of the Drury Inns, but didn't have the best experience at this one.  Made reservations for the wrong weekend and didn't realize it until we showed up a week early.  The man at the front desk did try to help us find a room at another Drury but it was further out from downtown that we wanted it to be.  We then told the front desk to please cancel our reservations for the next weekend since we would not be in town.  The next week, the charge came off our credit card.  When I called to have the charges reversed, I was put on hold for about 5 minutes, then taken off hold (as if the receiver was just laying there) and had to listen to a 15 minute conversation with the front desk and a guest about beauty supply stores.  I called back and was transferred to the front desk again.  The lady I spoke with the 2nd time said she would reverse the charges but would have to call me back.  They did reverse the charges but they shouldn't have been charged to begin with.

    By far excellent value. We were in town for a couple of days, and this place was great! Free Parking, Free Wi-Fi, and they have a small business area if you need it.  Continental breakfast was great. They really had a nice spread of fruit, cereal, eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausage patties, waffle station. Juice, Milk, Coffee. Pretty much something for everyone.
    There is a pool, a bar/restaurant which we didn't  check out but the pool looked clean and was a pretty happening spot. They also have Happy hour and free popcorn and pop in the lobby.
    Our room was very comfortable and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. You are within in walking distance to the Arch (maybe 20-30 minutes) and Union Station is just about a block or two away, there is a bus route that will take you directly to there as well. We wanted to just leave our car parked in their fairly secure garage (they give you a code to get in and out) and then walk and sight see as much as we could.
    Overall we were very pleased with our stay here.

    On our last night in St. Louis, we decided to stay downtown instead of with the friend we had been visiting. We did a bit of research, and the Pear Tree Inn near Union Station seemed to have some of the best reviews for the money. ($114 a night after taxes).

    PROS:

    -EXTREMELY friendly & helpful staff. From the time we checked in, until the time we checked out, every single person on the staff that I came across was extremely friendly. And not that fake "this is my job, so I'll smile and act happy" friendly. Genuinely friendly people. Always a bonus! Our room had a bit of a problem with the toilet...it kept running for about 15 mins after flushed. I called down to the front desk, and they had us into a new room within 5 minutes!

    -Free wine/beer and snacks. We didn't have to get anything out of the vending machine to munch on in the evening hours. There was chips & salsa, Pretzels, and Movie Theatre Style Popcorn, along with about 5 varieties of wine to choose from.

    -Continental Breakfast. WARM and very tasty food. Eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy, juice, cereal, donuts, & muffins. It was all good, and we were able to grab a couple of muffins for our drive home.

    -Visually appealing. From the breakfast area, to the rooms, it was beautifully decorated & furnished.

    -Fantastically fluffy pillows!

    -FREE PARKING.

    -Random...but the shower head was amazing.

    CONS:

    -The beds were a bit firm for my liking. My husband slept great, but I woke up with a sore back.

    -The hotel is downtown on Market street, but pretty far down. To get to the Arch, or downtown to visit the courthouses or Union Station, it would be a bit of a hike.

    -We were awoken at 7am by construction workers. Although I spoke to the front desk, and they gave us a free stay, even though the construction workers were actually renovating next door, thus they had no control over them.

    Overall, it was a great hotel for the money, and we would definitely stay there again if we visit St. Louis!

    My first time to St Louis and I was quite pleased with the Pear Tree Inn. They were very helpful with me when I asked a million questions about places in the area. They also have a happy hour and give you 2 free drinks during it. Also there is free breakfast that is actually pretty good and has a variety of food to choose from. I thought my room was clean and they have free wireless.

    Between the website and hotels.com , it was difficult to tell whether the rooms available were smoking or non-smoking.  The truth is that they are non-smoking rooms that use to be smoking.  Don't let it fool you depending on where you look.  The continental breakfast was rather good and definitely made it worth it.  The location is only about a mile from downtown, so if you want to be walking distance to the arch or to any of the stadiums, this may not be hotel for you.

    The hotel is nice, and I got a great deal through priceline. Parking is free, which is a nice bonus. The room was very quiet.

    So I just arrived in MO after a 5 hour drive from KY. I get to my hotel. The room is fabulously comfy and CLEAN!!! Three pillows per bed AND they're soft just the way I like 'em. At check-in, I received a drink card. That's right people. Each guest 21+ gets 3 free drinks (beer & wine) each night of their stay. They also offer free hot breakfast every morning. The hotel staff are pleasantly polite. I recommend PTI by Drury to anyone : )

    I had to go back here.  It was not my choice, it was for business.  Here's the deal.  The staff here is so nice and awesome, I hate writing a bad review.. I really do.  BUT, if I were coming here on vacation, I'd want to know.  This time I stayed on the 13 floor, I was as far away from the elevator as you could get.  No big deal.  The big deal was this: I had to pass by a room that stunk soooo bad it literally made me sick.  I don't know what the hell went on in there, but it was nasty.  
    There are also a couple of full time residents that are just plain creepy.  Christopher Walken and Old Facebook Dude.
    This time I stayed away from the eggs and didn't find the place as depressing.  Apparently something about freeze dried soggy eggs depresses me..??

    I picked this hotel based on cost, but knowing what I know now I would have gladly spent more money and stayed elsewhere.
    I received the poorest customer service EVER at the front desk.  Leslie tried to send me to the other Drury down the street AND the MARRIOTT. Wow.
    Room was clean and I was left extra towels after I left a little note in the room.
    Breakfast was decent and almost compensated for the other issues since I could grab breakfast before my 2 days of meetings.

    I made an emergency trip to St Louis as a result of a family member being transported 5 hrs to Barnes Jewish hospital.  I did not know the extent of my stay and it ended up being 2 weeks from Mar 18-Apr 1, 2014. Unfortunately, this was during the College basketball tourney and spring break.  The hotel staff knew our situation and found accommodations for us even thou every room was booked-they allowed us to all as a group stay in an executive room with cots-this saved us traveling an hour away to find a hotel.  Additionally, they gave us a better rate since we had someone in the hospital.  Despite all the additional people, the staff was extremely helpful and nicer than any people I have ever met.  The beds were very comfortable, staff was Amazing-Nelson Bay, Jason Medina, Nicole, Bryianna, Reggie, Rocky, Earline just to name a few we encountered daily and were generally concerned for our well being.  Our rooms (which we moved several times) were all neat and clean. The free breakfast was a nice treat and the snacks in the evening-a welcome pleasure to a long and stressful day.  We also enjoyed not having to leave to enjoy a meal so we ate at the Sybergs restaurant every night and they would fix us anything we needed.  Many blessings to the staff.  We will come back again on a more pleasurable trip next time.

    Great hotel. Excellent prices w complimentary pop, popcorn, and breakfast. Free parking and nice pool to top it off. My family stayed here 2 nights and the staff was very friendly. My parents had an issue w their ac in their room which Darren promptly fixed. He had a great attitude and upbeat personality. Jason one of the managers was also great.  These two gentlemen made our stay even better by their excellent customer service. We will be back!

    Agree with previous reviews that this hotel offers a lot of amenities with the downside of being somewhat run down at least from the outside and traditional in the decor. Arrived early and they let me checkin early without any problems which was a major plus.

    The cost is reasonable and the lobby area is quite nice for lounging and offers a nice flat screen TV as well as computers for use. Free wifi. Mini-fridge in room. Bathrooms are a little outdated but clean.

    Breakfast is by far one of the most varied of all hotels I've been to. Juices, coffee, Sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, donuts, apples, muffins, cereal, waffles etc. Definitely a filling breakfast worthy of keeping you full until lunch time.

    Parking garage is covered with a code key. There's a restaurant/bar attached to the hotel which I did not try.

    We stayed here from August 12-15th, and what a great stay it was!  The hotel was clean and orderly, our room was nice, and the staff was excellent.  Our first night we arrived during happy hour and after 4 hours on the road were more than ready to take advantage of the 3 free drinks a piece.  The bartender informed me that we could get larges, which counted as two drinks, and saved us from having to keep getting up to refill our glasses. :)

    Our three daughters don't drink pop, which is what is offered for those that don't drink wine or beer, and the manager, James, was so kind and accommodating.  He got three glasses of milk for them, and the next day, when we came down for happy hour he had their milk ready and waiting for them.  What service!   If there is an award given for great service, he should definitely be getting one.  

    The free breakfast in the morning was great, the kids loved the waffle makers, and Nelson did a great job, along with the rest of the staff.  Whatever method they use to hire or train their employees, they are doing a great job! Everyone seemed to go above and beyond.

    We were able to use the pool a few times, and every time we went it was clean and orderly and well stocked with towels.  The front desk people were always friendly and efficient, especially Nicole.  She has such a great voice and demeanor, and was able to multitask without making any customers feel like they were getting anything less than the best service.  

    This was my first stay in a Drury Hotel, and it will not be my last.  I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to the St. Louis area.

    Andy Samberg as Mark Wahlberg:
    "Hey partridge! How's it hanging? Where's your pear tree!? ... Oh! There it is."

    A reasonably short walk from the expansive Union Station, though it could be a bit troublesome if you don't pack light!

    Best complimentary breakfast spread I've seen: scrambled eggs, sausage patties, biscuits and gravy (see photo)... Belgian waffles, muffins, mini donuts and fresh fruit.  Nice, even if I suspected the eggs were those "egg beaters" you pour from a box.  Plenty of seating (and a TV), with side rooms for overflow.

    The furnished lobby has two PCs (with internet of course), plus couches around a big TV.

    The booking page lets you choose between "King Bed" and "Two Beds".  The "Two Beds" are double beds (a.k.a. full-size, 75" x 54")... not a lot of space if they're to be shared.  The room did include a big lounge chair with ottoman and the usual amenities (TV, dresser, nightstand, desk, chair, hair dryer).

    There's a heater in the room, controlled by a thermostat.  This was turning on and off (noisily) throughout the winter night.  Should have looked into disabling this.

    Housecleaning did a really good job, though there was no service on New Year's Eve*.  The breakfast staff was great too, and the front desk service was fine.  A good experience overall.

    *:  NYE, hotel residents were issued wristbands, and there was extra lobby security to keep... unsavory characters and sketchy guests out.

    There's an adjoining sports-bar-type restaurant that stays open until 10 or 11.  The hotel's popcorn machine and soda/juice dispenser are also available until about that time.  There were cookies too.  Yum.

    Good times in the STL!

    3.5 stars

    This hotel was an absolute nightmare.  We had been traveling across the country with and decided to stop in St Louis.  This seemed like a good deal with the military rate.  I am 8 months pregnant and we have a 2 yr old.  When we walked in there seemed to be an AC issue.  It just didn't feel cool.  It was completely packed with families running around.  We were so tired that we just wanted to get our stuff to the our room and go get something to eat quick.  Once we got to our room it was HOT!!  Clearly the AC wasn't working.  We turned it way down and just hoped that our room would be cool by the time we returned.  We went to the hotel restaurant and it had a very foul smell.  Something just wasn't right.  We decided to get back in the car and go grab something else.  There is nothing in this area for food.  We ended up doing carry out from the Hard Rock Cafe down the street.  It was just as run down and smelly.  We finally got back to our room and it was still HOT!!!  (80 degrees).  We called the front desk and maintenance came up and had to reset our AC.  It finally got cooler, but then it never shut off the entire night on the auto setting!!  It was so loud and uncomfortable.  We ended up going to bed after midnight and waking up at 4am.  We just wanted out of there!  To top it all off as we were leaving our room only one elevator was running and it wouldn't stop at our floor!!  We had to carry all of our stuff, 2 yr old and my pregnant self down 10 flights of stairs!!  It was horrible.  I'm only giving this hotel one star because of the staff was extremely nice.  I felt sorry for them that they have to work in such a shitty building.  We couldn't wait to get out of St. Louis!

    Ok the staff gets the 3 stars, the hotel, MAYBE two. Dig the location, dig the sports bar being attached with shuttle to the Cards game. Breakfast is no better than and Comfort INN, the refreshments at night were ho hum, and the beer flat. The Rooms were nice, you get a view of the dog kennel or the bar across the street. Got to point out the soap dispensers, keep in mind this is a DRURY hotel and they have soap dispensers, EW. Loved the dispenser that was dripping onto the shower handle, good times. All in the name of going green, no they are not, they are cutting corners. The towels, I highly suggest you bring your own, they are well worn and not sure if they ever saw a dryer! Better towels at resale shops. I did email Drury Inn and of course they are sorry and of course they will speak with the manager. Place is going down hill.

    When I fly to my old hometown, this is generally my base of operations.  Always helpful, the only complaints I have is when they have large groups of high school kids staying there.  One time they started rehabbing the room next to mine at six am, but the made it better by knocking a day off my bill.  Last time I was here in September,  I finally tried out the resturant, Sybergs, that is also on site and found it was pretty good.  In all its a decent place to crash.

    I stayed in this hotel a few weeks ago as part of a wedding.  I saw the reviews and didn't expect much, but this place could use some updating.

    The staff were really friendly throughout our stay, but our room was kinda scummy.  On the second day we realized the ceiling of our bathroom leaked every time the person above us took a shower.  We notified the front desk, who sent someone from maintenance to look at it.  Nothing was done about it, but he did come to look.  This was clearly not a new leak, as the ceiling was bowing.

    On the plus side, the free breakfast is actually halfway decent.  The scrambled eggs and the biscuits were good.

    I probably would have given the hotel 3 stars if I hadn't been hit with gross ceiling water while trying to pee.  I wouldn't stay here again.

    Not at all what I was expecting based on website and some of the reviews. Poor customer service, the assistant during check-in was not friendly and I had the feeling he was quite put off by working. The lobby is in major need of renovations. The website said there was a business center, great breakfast, drinks, pool.. All if these things were in one small area. When I went to get the drinks I had assumed it would be a bar. Instead it was like a cafeteria with people eating KFC at the table next to us, children running around screaming, scantily clad individuals walking through to the pool. I was just very shocked at the reality of the place. However the rooms are quite nice, parking is free. It's a decent location but you could spend the same amount on a better hotel located just as nicely and likely to have similar amenities.

    I stayed here for business, so I didn't make the reservation and don't know how much the rooms cost.  However, I would not pay 3-digits for a room here.  Reasons:
    1.  There are lots of high school/college age students hanging around, in their party buses, being loud.  I was awakened several times past midnight.  As a result of all that partying, there were broken alcohol bottles in the parking lot that I drove over with my car the next morning.
    2.  The building is dated.  Another guest and I were temporarily trapped in an elevator when the door failed to open and then the lighted buttons all went dark.  Fortunately, we were able to get off on another floor and hop into a different elevator.

    We came to St Louis for a family vacation. We stayed here through a priceline deal and we were not disappointed. Clean comfortable rooms, an evening beverage reception and a friendly staff. One of the big bonuses to this hotel is how close it is to everything! Union station is a block away. Gateway arch a mile and a half and so on. Free parking, central location and lots more. By tues night we couldn't park in the covered parking but the weather was good so that was ok.

    We stayed here over the Memorial Day Weekend and had some pretty high expectations for the $163 a night price tag. Our expectations plummeted at check in. The gentleman at the front desk swiped our credit card multiple times, causing it to eventually decline. He had somehow missed that it had been accepted prior to declining. We were rather confused when he said our credit card had declined and ended up using much of our vacation cash to pay for the room. We spent nearly a half an hour on the phone with out bank, which confirmed that the card had been run several times and had processed. We went back in and talked to the front desk staff, who continued to insisted it had never processed. Finally the front desk manager said he would call his IT department and look into it. Some time later called us and said that we were correct and he would give our cash back, making the comment that "we are only as good as our computers". When he did meet us, during dinner at the on site restaurant (Sybergs), to return our cash, he continued to make light of the event. After a very long day of driving, the last thing I expected was to be embarrassed at check with an unexpected credit card decline and the ensuing stress of "figuring it out" and then trying to convince them to take a closer look at the transaction. There was no offer to make up for the stress/anxiety that they had caused.

    As far as the amenities:

    Parking was free. It was a small parking garage just behind the hotel. If you are not unloading/loading your luggage at the drive up overhang, it will be a pain to walk through the garage with your luggage.

    Rooms were clean and average. In our room, their was no vanity/sink outside the bathroom (it was in the bathroom, like at home). Hair dryer, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner provided. No plastic laundry bag. Towels were some of the thinnest I have seen at a hotel. Beds were comfy. The view wasn't spectacular, but it was better than the backside of a parking lot. I liked that the windows were tinted, so you could keep the windows open and without being seen from the outside.

    Manager's reception was sparse...pretzels, tortilla chips and salsa along with your drink card, good for three drinks within the time frame. Choices: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Budweiser (maybe it Bud Lite, I can't remember). I had Merlot for two drinks, but they ran out of it and I had the Cabernet for my last drink. Both were okay. Watching other people, I learned that they did not let you get your drink and someone else's, nor could you use someone else's card after exhausting yours, each person had to redeem their own card.

    The pool are was nice enough and our 10 year old niece had a blast swimming in the three feet/four feet and five feet sections. We had hoped to get in the whirlpool, but it had been overtaken by a group of kids splashing around in it and running out other users. Pool towels were provided.

    The morning breakfast was great. Scrambled eggs, sausage patties, biscuits, gravy, bagels, toast, muffins, doughnuts, waffle station (in a separate room just to the side of the breakfast area), grits packets, oatmeal packet, hot chocolate packet, bananas, oranges, coffee, soda and juice. The morning dining room staff (Pearline, I think) was super; genuinely sweet.The only drawback to breakfast is that the dining room tables are tiny.

    All in all there were some great things (breakfast and free parking) and some average things (the room) and some disappointing things (whirlpool, manager reception snacks). For the price, there should have been much more great things.

    *Our check in experience took this review from a 3 star review to 2. Mistakes happen, but to dismiss us, then make light of it when we are right and blame "the computer" wasn't the proper response. Especially without offering to make up for it in any way.

    When booking a hotel in a city you've never been too sometimes a lack of pictures or an accurate review can leave you & the family wishing you booked another hotel or even worse, wish you could just live in the minivan for a week.

    Pear Tree Inn by Drury has positive reviews & for good reasons.  The staff was at the top of their game.  From the lady at the front desk who spent all of two minutes to check us in & give us our key, to Reggie who worked the bar & kept the snack area filled.  The rooms were clean, the bathroom was clean and the pool & surrounding areas were well kept.  No matter what time of day the cleaning crew were sweeping up the community dinning area where they had a free breakfast buffet every morning & free snacks and pop from 6 until 10.  One thing I thought was cool is adults receive 3 free beer or wine tickets each day from 6-830.  This helped keep costs down when going out to dinner.  I've never stayed at a hotel that offers free fountain pop & snacks for the kids every night and created a feeling like we were at home, they even had a cart full of board games.  

    Laundry services were an area that could use some attention, 2 washers & four dryers.  The dryers didn't work that well & we had to use extra quarters to dry them twice.  This hotel is showing its age but what this hotel lacks in curb appeal it makes up with hospitality & convenience.  My only complaint was the private parking garage.  It was very narrow, lots of giant pillars, full on weekends & if you see oil spots on the ground, the odds are you'll have a giant rainbow stain on your hood in the morning.  The hotel is located in the middle of everything we wanted to do, minutes from downtown and not to far from the Hill and other parts of the city.  If you don't feel like going out they have a nice bar & restaurant (Sybergs) located next to the pool.  The cost to stay here is hard to beat!  Throw in the free morning buffet, beers, pops & snacks and a stay at this hotel is a no brainer.  I wish they had more hotels in the cities I plan to visit because they have an awesome award program that rewards with you with several free nights.  I enjoyed my stay & if I was to return to St. Louis a stay here would be probable.

    Great hotel.  The hotel staff was very friendly.  Front desk awesome.   Great at giving directions.  I can see what others had said about kids,  but I had 3 older kids of my own, so the younger ones didn't bother me. Loved the wine in the evening.  That may have been my favorite part.  After days of traveling it was nice to sit and enjoy some wine.  Pool and hot tub were very clean!!  Breakfast was good.  I had to take one star off because as I was down at breakfast house keeping came in to clean my room and and taken my purse and belongings to the front desk.  Not cool to touch my stuff when I had not checked out.

    Very nice and helpful staff! Indoor pool with hot tube was very clean.  Free hot breakfast that was nice from 6:30 to 9:30.  Also free parking.   Rooms were dated but clean.  One person who stood out was Cathy who seemed to be everywhere.  Working the front desk one evening and then the buffet the next morning with a nice smile and great attitude! She was friendly and easy to talk to.   Will be back Thanks!

    Well...several things made this hotel not so comfortable:

    1) If you are facing the street, maybe you noticed Harry's bar and restaurant, which turns into a night club at on the weekends, with lines out the door at midnight and beyond, and booming bass-y music that can be heard even in our 10th floor room. I awoke several times during the night hearing the latest jams blasted from our next door neighbors.

    2) There were college-aged women going in and out of the hotel lobby in miniskirts around midnight when we arrived, presumably taking a break from the club next door, but doesn't positively add to the ambiance of the hotel check-in area.

    3) There was a security guard patrolling the hallway who perched right next to our room door. I guess it's meant to make you feel safer, but somehow this did not provide a peace of mind, and certainly not a lot of privacy.

    Do you need an affordable place to stay?  This is it!  Even if you are going to save $10, just say no.

    The staff is friendly and most of them are knowledgeable. You have a bad apple in every bunch. There is free parking, in/out, for the duration of your stay.

    Checking in is quick and simple. However, there are only TWO elevators for the entire place. I stayed on the ninth floor and found myself taking the stairs often.

    The pool area is small but it is nice. The hot tub is ALWAYS overrun with children. There are tons of children left unattended at the pool. The hotel could offer some sort of attendant. It would be nice to enjoy a hot tub as an adult.

    The breakfast is phenomenal. Eggs, sausage, yogurt, biscuits and gravy, waffles, donuts, muffins and cereal. This is complimentary. There is also soda and popcorn offered free throughout the day. In addition to all of this, there is happy hour which gives each adult in the room three free drinks. Wine or Beer. But hey, free is free.

    There is a restaurant in the hotel but it is ok. The staff is not knowledgeable and gave me misinformation. Something the hotel should keep tabs on. Their guests will be affected.

    So the restaurant runs a shuttle to the game. $2. Fantastic, right? Well it is but there is NO organization, no line...so it is a giant pile of chaos and there is lots of bad blood between guests.

    The rooms are clean and everyone comes with a fridge and microwave. The hotel provides shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Overall, I would definitely stay there again.

    How could you not give this hotel 5 stars?
    Free beer/wine/soda & snacks like nachos and popcorn during happy hour???? Awesome.

    If your headed to St. Louis for baseball or football, this definitely was the more affordable way to stay in comfort, giving you the ability to walk or cab it to the stadium.

    We had a very clean room, a great bed, and a nice view of St. Louis the entire visit.
    The employee's all showed great enthusiasm in trying to assist with anything needed, and offered nice suggestions for dinner/desert choices.

    We had completely FREE parking the entire stay for 2 cars with a gated parking structure. Not having to pay for parking is always an added bonus!

    The pool was small, but still added that little bit of extra enjoyment. The hot tub could have been a little hotter....and by no the fault of the hotel, was completely packed with 5 and 6 year olds....What the heck parents!!!!!

    The soda fountain station is only ON during limited hours...but it's free soda, so I'm not complaining.

    Breakfast was GGGGGGGGRRREAT!
    Large spread of eggs, sausage, waffles, biscuits/gravy, bacon, toast, muffins, yogurt, fruit.....One of the better hotel breakfast's I've seen offered.

    Over all a great hotel. If...I mean when I head back to St. Louis I'll definitely be staying at the hotel again.

    5 stars!!!!!!!

    My choices were the Double Tree or the Pear Tree Union Station.  My first time in Saint Louis (I'm from Alaska), I chose the hotel where I could walk a little outside but was still close to the conference.  With their free wi-if, free drinks in the evening, popcorn after the drinks, and free breakfast I am 100% sure I made the right choice.  (I'm talking full hot breakfast here!) Right at this moment, I am sitting in the lobby while families play cribbage, military guys cheer on the Cards, and the smell of popcorn wafts throughout the lobb, as I drink my free glass of winey.  The staff has been stellar, I travel all over the country and this staff at this hotel has, BY FAR, outshined the places I've stayed in the last couple months:  Portland, Seattle, Anchorage, DC.  They're friendly, helpful, always smiling, and ready to help.  And don't get me started on the view.  We are right next to a community garden, with full view of the downtown and Saint Louis Arch.  This may not be too important, but for me, the garden has been my place of refuge.  I am in love with this hotel!  If I ever make it back to STL, this will definitely be the place I stay.  Thank you Pear Tree, I appreciate it.  (PS, the room is not too shabby, clean, fridge and microwave, king size bed, lots of space!)
