Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

The Shaw Guest Suite is a serene sanctuary in a well-maintained 1920s-era apartment complex. The apartment is in St. Louis' historic Shaw Neighborhood, one-and-a-half blocks east of the world-renowned Missouri Botanical Garden. The "Shaw" sleeps up to four, with an excellent Queen-sized bed and a Queen-sized sleeper sofa bed that is truly worth sleeping on. Add $15/night per person when top-quality Queen-sized sleeper sofa bed is desired.

Our pricing defaults to two guests sharing the queen bed. If you will have two in your party, but would like to use the queen sleeper sofa, please either: Make your reservation for three, or let us know and we'll manually add the charge when processing your reservation.

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 apartment offers dedicated WIFI, a Roku Box for each television with a complimentary subscription to Sling TV, and antennas for local television stations. There is a television in both the living room and bedroom. The Shaw Guest Suite is less than 10 minutes by car--or an easy and delightful bike ride--to St. Louis' most beloved attractions: The Gateway Arch, Busch Stadium, City Museum, the St. Louis Zoo, Forest Park, the Fabulous Fox Theatre and Powell Symphony Hall. The Shaw Guest Suite is across the street from magnificent Tower Grove Park, a Victorian gem with more than 8,000 trees and shrubs, historic gates, gazebos and pavilions, a playground and wading pool, and a farmers' market that bustles with activity every Saturday during growing season. Within walking distance are dozens of outstanding restaurants. Base rate is for two people using one Queen-sized bed. Parking is free and on-street in front of the Shaw Guest Suite. With the exception of those reserving over holidays or other 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.

Dogs are welcome for an additional one-time charge of $25 per dog. Sorry, while we all love them, we do not allow cats at the Shaw Guest Suite.

The Shaw Guest Suite is on the first floor, and only accessible by a half flight of stairs.

About Karen Karabell

We are Karen Karabell and Rachel Presley, two sisters who own a property management company in St. Louis. We take great delight in being able to offer this infinitely-better-than-any-hotel-room accommodation to vacation or business travelers.

Why Karen Karabell chose St. Louis

The Shaw Guest Suite gives ours guests easy access to the best of St. Louis. Within walking distance are numerous restaurants, shops and the magnificent Missouri Botanical Garden. Across the street is Tower Grove Park, beloved to generations of St. Louisans for its flora, fauna and gazebos.

What makes this apartment unique

The Shaw Guest Suite is a home-away-from-home in one of St. Louis' marvelous historic neighborhoods. Staying here will give guests an opportunity to experience St. Louis as a resident instead of a tourist.

Reviewer Comments:

I have stayed at the Shaw Guest Suites a number of times over the past 4 years while my daughter attended Washington University and it has been perfect in every way. It is a charming apartment with a quaint little kitchen - stocked with fruit, eggs, water, beer and bagels! The bed is amazingly comfortable and there is a little back deck to have a late night drink on if you like. My second daughter is now attending St. Louis University so I am planning many more stays at the Shaw Guest Suite!

My husband and I have stayed at various short-term rental apartments managed by SF Shannon in the city of St. Louis. We had been staying in hotels or B&Bs for many years, but once we discovered these apartments, we have used them ever since. They are so nicely decorated, are very clean and very comfortable, with luxurious towels and bedding. And they are provisioned with small treats such as local coffee beans, chocolate bars, snacks, etc. I highly recommend the Shaw Suite and other SF Shannon rental apartments.

The apartment was clean and in a very nice neighborhood. There was a huge park right across the street. The shower was great, I would stay there again just for the shower.

Totally loved this place. They even had the same coffee maker I use at home! And whole bean coffee and a grinder just like I use at home! Took a walk in Tower Grove Park, right across the street in the morning, very nice. Nice, quiet neighborhood, close to The Hill, close to downtown.

We had a wonderful stay at the apartment on Magnolia Avenue. The apartment was very clean and we appreciated all of the conveniences, including the laundry area easily accessible from the back door. We enjoyed the many delicious snacks and coffee. The location was really good for us, as our daughter lives just across the park. It was so nice to take a walk in Tower Grove Park in the evening. We highly recommend this property.
