VINTAGE BEAUTY ON TOWER GROVE PARK & NEAR BOTANICAL GARDEN

St. Louis Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

The Shaw Guest Suite is in St. Louis' historic Shaw Neighborhood, one-and-a-half blocks east of the world-renowned Missouri Botanical Garden. The apartment sleeps up to four, with an excellent queen-sized bed and a queen-sized sleeper sofa that is truly worth sleeping on. Rates are based on whether one or both queen-sized beds are in use: As low as an all-inclusive $105/night with one bed in use, or as high as an all-inclusive $155/night with both beds in use. 'All inclusive' also includes unguarded welcome treats and the city's best freshly roasted coffee (if coffee is desired). Complete rate information is on the website: www.shawsuite.com.

The Shaw Guest Suite is less than 10 minutes by car--or an easy and delightful bike ride--to St. Louis' most beloved attractions: The Gateway Arch, Busch Stadium, City Museum, the St. Louis Zoo, Forest Park, the Fabulous Fox Theatre and Powell Symphony Hall. The Shaw Guest Suite is across the street from magnificent Tower Grove Park, a Victorian gem with more than 8,000 trees and shrubs, historic gates, gazebos and pavilions, a playground and wading pool, and a farmers' market that bustles with activity every Saturday during growing season. Within walking distance are dozens of outstanding restaurants.

After a long day enjoying or working in the city, it will be a treat to come home to The Shaw Guest Suite, a serene sanctuary in a well-maintained 1920s-era apartment complex. Book online via the Shaw Guest Suite website (www.shawsuite.com). Thank you!

Why Karen Karabell chose St. Louis

This is perhaps the most pastoral location in the city, with a location right across the street from magnificent Tower Grove Park. Peaceful, yet still in the middle of the city and close to everything!

We arrived very tired from our journey from the UK for our daughters wedding to find a wonderful, warm welcoming sanctuary! The suite totally exceeded our expectations in every way; location, quality furnishings, treats! Karen treated us like family and our 2 weeks stay here was enhanced by the Shaw suite. We will use again!

We really enjoyed our stay. Rachel & Karen really have things set up so it's just like home. There were snacks, fruit, beer and even gourmet chocolate. Great location for visiting Tower Grove Park and their Farmer's Market. We would stay here again for sure.

Lovely Apartment on Tower Grove Park

  • 4 of 5
This lovely apartment on the ground floor of a well maintained older building was exactly as the pictures showed. Very clean and equipped with everything you need for your time in St. Louis. It is tastefully decorated. You can walk across the street to Tower Grove Park and the Botanical Gardens are nearby as well. The owner was very friendly and accommodating upon our arrival. No early check-in but she had great coffee for us to make for our several days there. You are in a building with tenants that live there, several with dogs, but in general, it is a quiet pleasant place.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you were bothered by noise from the upstairs neighbor. We will contact the very pleasant resident who lives above the Shaw Guest Suite immediately and talk with her regarding your complaint. We are sorry that you did not choose to contact either of us about this matter as soon as it happened. As we told you when you checked in, either of us is only a phone call away, 24/7.
We are glad though that you think enough of the Shaw Guest Suite to give the apartment a 5/5 rating. We also love the apartment, and are delighted when others do, too. Our Dad likes to say: "There's a reason why Baskin-Robbins has 31 flavors." So is the case with lodging: There are lots of great options to choose from. Unfortunately, one takes the chance of hearing others while living in community. This is true whether you stay in a four-star hotel or the Red Roof Inn.
Please accept our sincere apology that your peace was disturbed. Please also accept our best wishes when you search for future lodging in St. Louis. Thank you!

Happy traveler

We were delighted with our stay at the Shaw Suite apartment. It was perfectly located for us, and was so cute and well-decorated. It had everything we needed, including a well-stocked refrigerator for breakfast items, as well as wonderful coffee and snacks. What a delightful touch, and so helpful! Rachel and Karen were very accommodating and we will definitely return :)

Great charming find!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here in mid october of 2013 for my friend's wedding. We loved the location, very safe area. The apartment itself was very charming and nicely appointed. We especially appreciated the snacks and partially stocked fridge....that was a nice touch! Innkeepers were just a call away and easily accessible. We can't wait to stay here again!
