Charming character makes the Cheshire a welcome place to stay. The staff is friendly, and the Old World decor is immersive. You will see some scuffs on the doors and the occasional bit of paint touch-up needed, but this is natural. The alarm clock in our room had the wrong time and couldn’t be reset, so I used my phone alarm. Convenient location. Basso restaurant was great. Definitely would stay here again.

The hotel is conveniently located near Forest Park and Washington University. Another plus is it shares the parking lot with a Starbucks. The rooms were clean. Our air conditioner was not working one day but they sent someone up and fixed it quickly. Overall, a good stay.
