The Targee is a fully furnished studio apartment on the third floor of a high-rise apartment building across the street from St. Louis University. You'll enjoy fast Internet, all linens, and a fully stocked kitchen. We start your stay with light breakfast foods, welcome beverages and a selection of teas. Sleep well on the top-quality Queen-sized bed. Free permit parking is available, first-come, first-served. But you don't need your car here! This is a transit- and bike-friendly location. The Targee is four miles directly west of the Gateway Arch and 3.5 miles west of America's Center. A 24-hour supermarket is two blocks away. Numerous restaurants and bars, coffee houses, and all the amenities of a great urban center are within walking distance.
The apartment has WIFI, and an antenna for local stations on the flat screen television. You are welcome to log into any streaming services to which you subscribe, through the Roku Box.
The Targee includes all the basics. There's a large gas range, frost-free fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, cookware and utensils. Yes, there's a hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Two-night minimum on weekends.
Sorry, while we all love them, we do not allow pets at the Targee.
The Targee is on the third floor of a seven-story building. You may access the apartment by stairs or elevator.
The apartment is all yours! There is a shared coin-operated laundry room in the basement, and shared hallways with other guests and residents.
Parking is first-come, first-served with a permit that you'll receive upon arrival. Please note that demand is greater than supply. If permit parking is already full, you may park at any nearby metered space at no charge between the hours of 7 PM and 8 AM Monday through Saturday, and all day on Sunday.
Other Things to Note:
The Targee has window-unit air conditioning. We pull the air conditioner out of the window by the middle of November to clean it and store it for the winter. We reinstall the air conditioner in April. If you feel like you need an air conditioner outside of this schedule, please discuss with us. We will do our best to accommodate.
In the winter months, the heat is controlled by a central boiler that runs steam through the radiators. The boiler is scheduled to run 3 to 6 times a day, depending on the weather forecast. The Targee also features a high quality space heater if you get too chilly between runs.
The Targee is next to the building's elevator. You may hear noise while it is in use. If you are a late or light sleeper, we have earplugs in the apartment. You may hear noise from the neighboring apartments, as the historic charm of the building does not include soundproof walls. We've had some guests complain about odors in the hallway, from residents who cook, smoke marijuana and/or cigarettes. We no longer rent to smokers, and want the building to be smoke-free! We have had this policy for eight years. However, when we instituted the policy, we did not force our residents who smoke to move. (Many residents who have lived in the building for decades.)
“How far is it to the Fox?” The Targee is about 0.6 miles from the Fox. You should be able to walk there in 10-15 minutes. We’ve had lots of actors from the Fox stay with us!
"How far is it to the America's Convention Center?" This apartment is about 3 miles from the Center. It should be drivable in about 15 minutes, or you may take public transit.
“Is it safe?” Several of our staff members live in the building and have never had any problems. Owner Karen has lived just three blocks away for more than 30 years and absolutely loves her neighborhood! Anywhere you stay, whether in the city or county, you should be aware of your surroundings. Anywhere you park, you should never leave any valuables clearly visible.
