My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful night away and hit the jackpot at Napoleon's Retreat. LaFayette Square is our favorite neighborhood and this beautiful B&B did not disappoint. The innkeepers Brian and Stacy were fantastic and made our stay very enjoyable. The room was perfect, with a great view of the neighborhood and breakfast really hit the spot. I...

We had a great time on our long weekend in St. Louis and loved having Napoleon's as a home base. It's a good central location -- lots of fun spots in walking distance + easy access to freeways and other parts of the city by car. Stacy was so nice and friendly and just the right mix of being attentive...

Remarkable doesn't even begin to describe our stay at the Napoleon's Retreat B&B. Stacy (Owner), has the finest breakfast of any B&B we've stayed with. The house has an appealing history and with loads of character. We tend to always stay at different B&B's across the states when traveling but we will always be back to Napoleon's in St. Louis....

We spent two nights in the Napoleon room. Very spacious room on the third floor which gave us privacy. The stairs to the room are fairly steep but we had no difficulty going up and down. We are active seniors. In fact it was a good exercise after the delicious and healthy breakfasts prepared by Stacy. It was very convenient...

What a lovely B&B... Absolutely stunning decor with old world charm yet updated amenities. The breakfasts were so good I'm sure I gained 10 pounds just from my weekend stay. Stacy went above and beyond to make the visit so enjoyable, and I will definitely stay again when I'm in the area!

Not too happy with 3rd floor room. Very steep stairs for 70 year olds! Bed was way to soft, needs to be replaced because you roll into the middle since it is only a queen. It was a VERY big room and nice bathroom . Television across the room didn't work well. Sitting area was a bit uncomfortable. Parking on...

My husband and I traveled to Saint Louis with three couples, staying six nights at Napoleon's Retreat. We had wonderful accommodations and fabulous, indulgent breakfasts every morning.

You're too kind, Jean! I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in our fair city. It was wonderful having you all as our guests.

My partner and I stayed in the enormous Napoleon room. We thoroughly enjoyed having such spacious and comfortable accommodations in a fun part of the city. The inn is an easy walk away from restaurants, a wine bar, shops, and the beautiful park. Plus Stacy's breakfasts were great. Recommended for anyone needing to unwind.
