Not your typical hotel / motel stay

I would compare the service and style to the Plaza Hotel in New York City, in fact, but without the discomfort of that hotel's overbearing highbrowed staff. — The Daily Journal

QUESTION: What is the best place to stay in the St. Louis, MO / Alton, IL area?

  1. another ho-hum, chain hotel / motel room, or
  2. a local experience in the quiet and safety of a surprisingly affordable, fully restored, and lavishly appointed historic mansion—replete with all of the modern amenities?


You work hard. Whether you are interested in leisure, business, bleisure, or government lodging—a staycation, romantic getaway, extended stay hotel, or just traveling through—you deserve to treat yourself to an experience that's a million miles from ordinary.

Why would you ever settle for a stay in an ordinary hotel or motel room when you could be living the life of the turn-of-the-century rich and famous at this St. Louis area Meeting of the Great Rivers All Around Alton, IL icon?
