Recent guests were disappointed with the cleanliness of the hotel
Situated just about 8 miles west of St. Louis' iconic Gateway Arch and within walking distance of Forest Park, The Cheshire attracts visitors with its blend of Midwestern charm and British flair. Outfitted with English-inspired decor, including 18th-century antiques and accents, The Cheshire earned rave reviews from recent visitors for its warm atmosphere and comfortable accommodations. Standard guest rooms feature 37-inch flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee makers, pillow-top beds and free Wi-Fi access. For a truly memorable experience, you'll want to reserve one of the hotel's themed suites, like the James Bond or the "Romeo and Juliet" suite. Previous guests particularly praise the "Passage to India" novelty suite, noting the room's Far East accents deliver a unique visual display. When it comes to dining, you can grab a seat at Basso, Fox and Hounds or BOUNDARY. Plus, you'll have the benefit of complimentary breakfasts and tea service throughout the duration of your stay. If you're planning a visit during the warmer months, don't forget to bring your swimsuit to take a dip in hotel's outdoor pool (open seasonally).

Critic Reviews


The Cheshire has long been a St. Louis institution, and the historic property was thoroughly rejuvenated after multi-million dollar renovations in 2011. The classic decor in the lobby and cozy Fox & Hounds tavern were preserved during the overhaul, and the 108-room property retained charming British-inspired elements throughout.
