Napoleon's Retreat Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 27 Saint Louis B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2017

My fiancée and I stayed in the Burgundy Room and really enjoyed it. The room is great, the building is fantastic, and Stacy is a fantastic host. The B&B is really nice and has a historic feel to it that we really liked. And there's a number of great restaurants and bars within walking distance from the front door. Oh, and breakfast was fantastic. Really good. If you're coming to St. Louis, Lafayette Square is really the best part of town to stay in, and Napoleon's Retreat is a great option. Highly recommended.

It was our pleasure hosting your getaway to St. Louis. We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed our inn and our neighborhood filled with Painted Lady Victorian homes. Stacy is blushing over your compliments about breakfast! We look forward to your next visit!

I wanted to find a B&B for our anniversary and we had show tickets at the Fox in STL so I came across Napoleon's. It was perfect! Such a cozy stay and the breakfast was delicious! It was quiet and in a fun neighborhood for us to explore. We highly recommend! Thanks for making our anniversary so fun!

Room Tip: We liked the top floor! Big room!

My husband and I have been visiting Napoleon's Retreat since 2013, when we initially visited for an anniversary trip. This charming B&B is now the only place that we stay while visiting St. Louis, and have recommended it to all of our friends and family members. The property is located in historic Lafayette Square and is within walking distance of parks and many wonderful restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. The rooms are beautiful (we have stayed in them all, the Burgandy is a favorite) and well-appointed with everything that you could need during your stay. While the property is gorgeous, what keeps us coming back is the owner/proprietor, Stacy. She is a gracious host, has always been extremely accessible (she and her husband live on site), and she makes a great breakfast! Stacy is also very knowledgeable about the STL area and has wonderful recommendations for dining and entertainment. We always look forward to staying at Napoleon's Retreat and feel right at home when we are there.

Had an ok stay here. So eco friendly the hot water is set low took cold shower and cool bath. Rented a room with a garden tub I couldn't use. 5 star stay served ketchup with breakfast? The actual stay was average but after the stay I left a review on a search engine and was then contacted repeatedly by the owner about my character and how I should basically be ok with her remedy of twenty bucks off a 275 dollar room. Contacting me after over and over was far worse than the actual stay.

We are very sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay. Our other 8 guests did not experience issues with the hot water during the evening or the morning of your stay. The instant you mentioned an issue we checked the hot water heater to ensure it was working correctly. We gave you a 10% refund on your $200 room (the room rate is printed on your receipt) and a gift certificate for the inconvenience. We deeply regret sending a single, solitary email to better understand what happened and to see what more we could do to appease you. We never contacted you repeatedly or questioned your character. Little did we know that one single email would cause you to fly into a rage and threaten our online reputation.

We provide individual servings of ketchup in antique crystal salt cellars when we serve potatoes. It's unclear as to why this guest's preference for hot sauce (which was provided upon request) reflects poorly on our breakfast. Also, we would like to note that we responded to this guest's review in August 2017 using the same wording as above. However, "NotNiceNurse" (the name says it all) contacted TripAdvisor to have our response deleted.
