Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3

The Ullrich Suite is an unusual and beautifully furnished open floor plan, one-bedroom apartment in St. Louis' grand and historic Compton Heights. Located in a former storefront bakery, the apartment features a king-sized bed of the highest quality. (Please note that a large arts and crafts style bookcase separates the living room area from the sleeping area. In other words, the bedroom is not a room by itself with a door.) Included in the tariff is a rotating selection of light breakfast foods, unguarded welcome treats, a selection of teas, and freshly roasted coffee from one of the city's best roasters to start your stay. The spacious kitchen is fully equipped, with a large gas range, frost-free refrigerator, dishwasher and much more.

Complete Internet service with WIFI is included. A large flat-screen television includes a Roku Box with complimentary SlingTV, and an antenna for local television stations.

In warmer weather, sit outside and enjoy the fountain and garden in the Ullrich's gated courtyard. From this location it is easy to walk, bike or take public transit to the best of St. Louis. The Gateway Arch and Downtown St. Louis are less than four miles from the Ullrich Suite. The world-renowned Missouri Botanical Garden is two miles west--and a delightful walk, through some of the city's finest historic neighborhoods. St. Louis University Medical Center is within walking distance. The main campus of St. Louis University is two miles north. Washington University's main campus is about seven miles from the Ullrich Suite. Barnes Hospital & Washington University Medical Center is four miles from the apartment. Numerous restaurants and magnificent historic parks are within walking distance.

Rates are based on two people. Add $15/night for a third person using the sofa, for which we will provide full linen service. Parking is free and on-street in front of the Ullrich Suite. While your reservation is held with a fully refundable security deposit, you are not charged your rental fee until you arrive. 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 Ullrich Suite.

The Ullrich is on the ground floor, with one step leading to the apartment entrance.

About Anne, Kathy or Harold

SF Shannon is honored to offer unique and lovingly furnished accommodations in the Central West End, Compton Heights, and across the street from magnificent Tower Grove Park. All of us at SF Shannon take great delight in helping you discover the best of St. Louis!

Why Anne, Kathy or Harold chose Tower Grove East

This property was built more than 100 years ago by the Ullrich Family, who operated a bakery on the first floor and lived upstairs. The building is a classic example of Bavarian Revival architecture. We decided to open the Ullrich Suite to honor the family's enduring contribution to this corner of St. Louis (as well as to provide a great place for travelers to rest after they're done exploring).

What makes this apartment unique

The Ullrich Suite is located in the heart of metropolitan St. Louis. From here it's easy to get anywhere in the city.

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay in the Ullrich Suite was delightful. We loved having the full kitchen to enjoy breakfast in our jammies. The fridge with eggs, bagels and fruit was the nicest touch. The locally roasted coffee beans with accompanying grinder put it over the top for us. It truly was the best “full kitchen” rental we’ve experienced, and considering that’s our standard travel choice (we prefer to eat in some meals when we travel), it says a lot. The bed was really comfortable, as was the TV area where we binged on Season 1 of “This is Us.” Our only slight tussle was the bathroom size. Again, all the special touches were there (the waffle weave towels were heavenly), it was a tight fit. We wondered if the small alcove right outside the bath couldn’t be utilized somehow for space to spread out toiletries, clothes and towels while getting ready. Privacy could be achieved by a heavy pull curtain that could be slid to the side when pamper time in the shower wasn’t happening. Just a thought. It wouldn’t keep us from coming back, that’s for sure. The thoughtful care and maintenance of this historic space was evident and appreciated. Well worth the investment for our long weekend getaway. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Hi Carol ~ Using the alcove outside the bathroom to "increase" its space is a great idea! Thank you. We'll look into it. I'm delighted that you loved the Ullrich Suite. Thank you for choosing the apartment! ~ Karen

My husband came to town for a short stay. However, I didn't want to leave! This apartment is so charming and comfortable. It was very clean and nicely remodeled. The bed was very comfortable as well. The homeowners left snacks and light breakfast foods to make our morning even more enjoyable. I wish we had more time to explore the quaint neighborhood. A visit to The Shaved Duck is a must! Just a short walk down the street to mouth watering BBQ!

Another great stay in a beautiful historic building. We have been staying in SF Shannon properties for the past 4 years when we visit our son. They are always clean and stocked with all the comforts of home. This unit is in a safe neighborhood and within walking distance to Tower Grove Park. The staff is always accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. We'll be back.

Reviewer Comments:

My son and I stayed at the Ullrich for 19 days while he was involved in a production at the Muny. The location was very convenient for ease of getting to and from Forest Park. The convenience of Grand Ave and Compton made getting anywhere a breeze. I was surprised that there wasn't an actual bedroom, but rather the bed is separated from the living room by a large bookcase. The convenience of Crafted right next door was perfect for food and hanging out with friends. The noise from the bar was not a problem late at night. Amenities were wonderful and the staff was most accommodating when we had problems with the alarm; it was addressed quickly considering it was a weekend. The unit has a lovely courtyard and side lawn for the dog to run. Parking wasn't too bad, never had to park more than a block away. As mentioned in other reviews, the bathroom is small but manageable. My only complaint, and it is so minor, is that the kitchen trash can was so small and filled up too quickly. Overall, we were pleased with our stay and enjoyed our time at The Ullrich.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the Ulrich which was a blend of the historic old & contemporary new. The rooms were spacious with the exception of the bathroom. Considering that it was a transformation of a bakery to a living space, it was very well done! The rental was so clean & tastefully decorated. We were surprised to find eggs & bagels in the fridge which allowed us to enjoy an "eat-in" breakfast. There is a restaurant immediately next door which makes it convenient if you desire not to venture far. We had reservations at a restaurant,the Element, that provides rooftop dining & an amazing view of the St. Louis skyline including the top of the Arch. Since this was a celebration dinner, we were not disappointed! The food was amazing!! The Element was within short driving distance from the Ulrich. The mgt. service for the Ulrich was most helpful when we phone with several questions. At first I was concerned about the rental price, however, with the treats, breakfast foods & ambiance & other amenities, it was indeed well worth it! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We have stayed in other SF Shannon properties before and are never disappointed. This one is no different. The location is unique and great, and the unit has an interesting history. It is well appointed with a nice living area and large kitchen. The building is older but well taken care of, and that's exactly what we like.. character with comfort. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
