The Wyndham Roberts Mayfair is a historic hotel in downtown St. Louis. Formerly known simply as the Mayfair, it is in an 18 story building that was built in 1925. Completely restored, the hotel attempts to mix a bit of historical European ambiance with modern conveniences.
The public areas of the hotel target the Old World aesthetic rather heavily. Crystal chandeliers, marbled flooring, and Victorian type furnishings give off a certain opulence designed to match the age of the overall building. There is even an executive boardroom for 12 that is done in this baron-businessman style that can be reserved for special meetings.
The rooms are more updated in terms of the furnishings. Travelers gave rooms a passing score but didn't remark much about them. The hotel reports that they were renovated in 2007. Kings, queens, and doubling are available. Winter and seasonal rate specials mark the four star hotel available to budget-minded folk, although in summer month and at holidays the hotel can be pretty packed.
The hotel has indoor and outdoor relaxation options. The outdoor rooftop pool is open seasonally and has a sun deck for tanning or simply looking out over the city. Inside, the fitness center has cardio and weights equipment for guests.
Internet access is complimentary in the public areas, with dedicated lines available in the rooms. Conference space in addition to the small boardroom can be booked and business support services are available. There is a hotel restaurant on site that serves American fare in an up-market setting.
Shuttle service to and from the airport is available, as well as town car and limousine service. The downtown Metro Link station is just a few blocks away. Walking to the Arch or Busch Stadium is just a few blocks distance, and many guests reported taking advantage of the central location in their remarks.
