Park Avenue Mansion
Park Avenue Bed & Breakfast, an elegant 1874 French Second Empire "Painted Lady" in historic Lafayette Square, offers immediate convenience to downtown St. Louis, the Convention Center, Arch, Riverboat Casinos, Zoo, Sports Centers and the Museum Campus.
As you walk up the brick pathway, open the wrought iron gates, and enter through the enormous carved doors, you know you are in the right place. From the impressive twelve foot ceilings, to the original antique white pine flooring supporting the open staircase, it's easy to lose yourself in the grace and elegance of the period. Antiques, stained glass, and beautiful chandeliers complete the period look and welcome the discriminating tastes of experienced travelers, without sacrificing today's modern comforts.
Pamper yourself in one of our 4 bedrooms with a hot steamy shower, or a relaxing soak in your private whirlpool tub, snuggle up in fluffy towels and French terry cloth robes, indulge yourself with a little chocolate treat and settle down for a good night's sleep.
Awaken to the aroma of our own blend of coffee ..For you, we serve a full champagne breakfast on old china, sterling silver, and crystal.
Today you might have crepes stuffed with crab, creamed eggs and cheese topped with sour cream. Tomorrow may be Citrus Belgian Waffles topped with whipping cream and fresh berries, or perhaps our "Breakfast Flower" quiche filled with a blend of cheeses, vegetables and herbs picked from our herb gardens. Breakfast is served in our formal dining room. From the beautiful hand painted crystal glasses and large crystal chandelier, to the spectacular cast iron fireplace, huge sideboard, and original oil painting, the dining room seems to have jumped off an artist's canvas. Weather permitting, guests may also enjoy breakfast alfresco in the English gardens or on the private deck. Brick paths, fountains, benches and iron tables are hidden among flower gardens giving a feeling of rural isolation in a thriving urban environment.
