Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

The Jessie Benton Suite is in the Central West End, one of St. Louis' best walking neighborhoods. The apartment can sleep up to four, with an excellent queen-sized bed and a sleeper sofa bed that is truly worth sleeping on. Add $15/night per person when top-quality sleeper sofa is desired.

Included in the tariff is a rotating selection of unguarded welcome treats, a selection of teas, and freshly roasted coffee from one of the city's best roasters. The 'Jessie' is one block west of St. Louis University. It is four miles west of the Gateway Arch, and within three miles of St. Louis' most popular attractions: City Museum, the St. Louis Zoo, the Missouri Botanical Garden, the St. Louis Art Museum and Forest Park. The apartment is across the street from a 24-hour full-service supermarket. It is a short walk to two 24-hour pharmacies, several coffee houses, two first-run movie theaters, and many fine restaurants. Rates are based on whether one or both of the apartment's beds are in use. Base rate is for two people using one Queen-sized bed. Rates are all-inclusive: Taxes, linens, cleaning, etc. are all included. Parking for one car is included on our lot adjacent to the building. With the exception of those reserving over holidays or high-demand dates, guests are not charged until their day of arrival. Add $15 per night on weekends and holidays. A two-night minimum is required on weekends.

The Jessie in on the ground floor, but has one step leading to the building entrance.

About Karen Karabell

We are Rachel Presley and Karen Karabell, two sisters who own a property management company in the City of St. Louis. The former office and caretaker's apartment in The Fremont has been completely rehabbed and renamed the 'Jessie Benton Suite.' Benton was the daughter of U.S. Senator Thomas Hart Benton and the wife of John C. Fremont, who in 1856 was the first Republican Party candidate for U.S. President (he lost that year to James Buchanan) and commander of the Union army's Western Department during the first year of the Civil War. Although Fremont and 'General Jessie' were highly controversial figures both in St. Louis and in Washington, the building was named in their honor when it was built in 1928.

Why Karen Karabell chose Missouri

If you need to be in the heart of St. Louis, this is an ideal location.

What makes this apartment unique

It is easy to get from here to anywhere in St. Louis. You don't need a car to stay at the Jessie Benton Suite, which is in one of St. Louis' best walking neighborhoods. Public transit is right outside the front door. At the same time, the 'Jessie' is close to Interstate 64, providing easy access to all of the city.

Very nice room. Very professional people. Close to the church/basilica we attended on Sunday as well as MUNY in Forest Park with so many other places to visit and enjoy. Friendly tenants. Charming atmosphere. Perfect place for 2 to 3 people to stay.

Reviewer Comments:

This apartment was a real treat! Difficult to find a better location- close to SLU, Wash U, Forest Park, The Loop. Easy to get to and parking is just a few steps from the door. Grocery store across the street, pharmacy nearby, multiple restaurants. The residents of the apartment building are very nice. If you need to stay near Wash U Medical Center (Barnes Hospital, Children's Hospital, etc) this would be a great place also

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed staying at this property for 4 days while on a short trip for my sisters birthday. We mainly chose this location for its closeness to her apartment. The location was perfect for us. We found it to be as described except there was no computer as shown in the photos. It was small but very quaint and very clean. The refrigerator was even stocked with a few items. We had everything that we needed for our stay. The weather was quite cold during our stay but we stayed very comfortable while there. Overall it was a pleasant trip. The location was near several restaurants and fast food places. We ate at a couple and they were very good. There are two pharmacies, a bank and groceries nearby. We only had a couple of issues while there. Upon arrival, the parking spots we were given were occupied by some workers trucks and the television in the living room was not getting a picture. A quick phone call to the managers had both problems solved very quickly. They were very friendly and responsive. It is a very old building at a fairly busy intersection so we noticed some noise from the street and residents coming and going. We had no trouble sleeping well though. The bed was very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your detailed review, Tony! The Jessie Benton Suite was our very first Vacation Rental apartment. (We've been hosting guests there for eight years now!) I didn't realize that we still had a photo of the desk with a computer on it. I apologize for this, and just removed the photo. When the apartment is vacant, I'll get another photo of the lovely antique desk on which people may sit their own computer. Future guests can be assured that we offer dedicated high-speed Internet service, available via both WIFI and a modem in Jessie Benton Suite. Thanks again for your review, and Happy Birthday! ~ Karen
