It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at referer.us/8/GoodHotelDeals They usually have some pretty good deals on there!

dinner was good. staff in restaurant friendly. now, we spent the night afterwards. stayed in Louis and Frederick suites with friends. Freezing cold, couldnt go to sleep if you wanted to. their idea of a breakfast is cranapple juice (2) 2 granola bars, a bag of mini muffins and a biscotti. a mr coffee and some instant stale coffee rounded out their idea of a buffet! i could have over looked that if the staff wasnt so rude when we checked in and if the rooms werent so freezing cold. it was 15 degrees warmer in the hallways.

Pros: good dinner

Cons: freezing rooms crappy "breakfast"

I have eaten at the Mansion many, many times, and I am currently "sleeping my way" through the Mansion. I have hit 3 rooms, with 3 to go. It is pricey, but it is a great place nonetheless. If you come here looking to watch TV, then maybe you want the Holiday Inn instead. The charm and draw of this place is how open everyone is to let you explore it, if you are staying. If you go to "free" programs enough, you learn quickly that it is always best to call ahead and see if there is an unannounced reservation required. I can personally attest that the staff in all my trips there are polite, courteous and attentive. Great place to visit, whether or not you stay. You're visiting history and a great ambience. 16,000 thumbs up for the old gal!

Pros: Best food anywhere, rooms are great to stay in

Cons: Not good for wheelchair accessibility

Lemp Mansion Sucks. The only think it has going for it is architectural. If you are interested in its haunted history you can go walk through the museum for free but don't spend any money at this place. The staff is rude and condescending. They clearly do not care to have children there.
I arrived on wed. night for the Edgar Allen Poe reading only to be told that the free event was 'sold out'. When I question them as to how that was possible they explained that all the seats were reserved in advance. This program was widely advertised. If reservations were necessary, this fact should have been specified. Many people came, were berated for not having had the sense to made reservations, were told that Lemp did not have control over what was picked up and advertised by the local papers or radio stations and that the website suggested reservations. It takes a lot of nerve tell a bold face lie like that when a framed picture of how Lemp had advertised the event on their website was sitting in plain view at the entry way. There is no mention of reservations. There was not even a suggestion that it was possible to reserve seats.
This was meant to be a fun educational event for the group that I came with included 2 adults, two 9yr olds, an 11 yr old, and a 16yr old college sophomore. These are very well behave, very intelligent, home schooled children who went and looked at the museum and then sat quietly as we waiting to see if seats would materialize. Some did and the hostess/program organizer sat a couple of women, who arrived without reservations after we did, in them. When I questioned her about this she said 'this isn't some sort of a government program'. I haven't the foggiest idea what that meant aside from 'children are not welcome here'.
We give Lemp 12, well educated, interesting, articulate, multi-lingual, sophisticated, not easily offended, opposable thumbs, down.
...and, yes. even the youngest members of our group were offended.

I have tried / done everything at Lemp Mansion. I have gone to their murder mystery theater, eaten many times for lunch and dinner, taken the spirit tours once offered on Monday nights and stayed overnight. I am getting ready to take a new friend to eat there as well as stay overnight in August. If you looking for a place not noisy and quiet, this probably isn't it. Last time we stayed overnight we got a 1:00 a.m. concert of "I Will Survive" in the courtyard from a drunk wedding guest. Needless to say she wasn't in tune. But the whole point of visiting is to have fun, explore an old, historical house and just not let anyone or anything's attitude ruin your good time. We will be staying on the top floor on a night when the staff leaves early. We plan to grab our flashlights and go exploring if there aren't any others staying over. It's going to be SO MUCH FUN! Looking forward to the great meal. Check it out!

My wife and I stayed at the Lemp Mansion for my 29th birthday. We had planned a romantic getaway. We booked the Lavender Suite which is the nicest and biggest room in the mansion. When we got to the room the first thing I did was turn on the television. I was SHOCKED to see that they didn't have cable. I don't know if it's me or not, but I expect cable television in a room that I'm being charged $205 a night. I just have to watch Sportscenter before going to bed. We reported the issue to management, but we were brushed off. I think maybe twenty or thirty years ago cable in a room was considered a luxury, but in the 21st century it's not. I was stuck with 7 local channels which all had a lot of static. The room was very clean and came with a little basket of snacks and two small containers of wine. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was nice too! Some advice: The Lavender suite overlooks interstate 55 so there was some highway noise. If noise would be an issue to you I would recommend the Charles Lemp Room which is on the other side of the house and overlooks the garden. The Charles Lemp room doesn't have it's own bathroom though...

I went to a public dinner theatre with a few friends celebrating a birthday. Upon arrival you are given a name tag and your characters role/secrets. You are invited to interact with other guest there to get more information about the story. The first course was Beer Cheese Soup, I thought it was good although it could have been a little hotter. The actors were very funny and did a lot of audience interaction... so you may want to keep that in mind if you are shy. Second course was May(ceasar) Salad. Entree was Fried chicken breast with gravy with Steak and rice, It was a lot and I probably shouldnt have ate it all but it was very good. There was also Cheesecake for dessert. For the price the food and entertainment was worth the value and I plan to go back. I just hope they change up the menu regularly.

Pros: Great value, good food, very entertaining

Cons: Bathroom had bad odor, no choice in entrees, and servers rushes each course.

This is not only a delicious place to eat, but also interesting. Your waiter can fill you in on bits of history about the Lemp family while you enjoy fantastic food. It is also a bed and breakfast.

Most popular during Halloween because it is said to be haunted, this is a nice but creepy place to stay. The mansion was built in the 1860's and William Lemp (of the Lemp Brewery) moved his family into the house in 1876. Then horrible things happened to his family, including numerous suicides and deaths in the building.

So if you want a haunted place to stay and are looking to go ghost hunting, you might want to try staying here.

They do mystery dinners here and they also have wedding receptions here.

This is a very historic building. Lots of history in it. Interesting to see. Food is very good but a bit pricey. Usually pretty busy in the evening and weekends. Call ahead.

This Mansion is considered one of America's most haunted houses, which makes it even moreinteresting to visit. The house was built in the 1860's and William Lemp moved his family in the house in 1876 where numerous suicides and deaths occured in the home. Now the home serves as a bed and breakfast with four suites, each which is named after and previously belonging to a certain family member. They offer a dinner show on the weekends at night where you are involved in the mystery. A great weekend get away and the price is all worth your stay here. Tours are also available.

When I've been here, I usually go on Sunday evenings when they run an "all you can eat" dinner. Servers bring out bowls and plates of everything from fried chicken and sliced ham to cucumber salad, slaw, potatoes and gravy, rice, and baked apples - and if you want more of anything, you just ask. (Sometimes, discount coupons are available for this too.)

The Lemp Mansion is of historical significance since it was originally the home of the owners of the Lemp brewing company in St. Louis. They claim the mansion is still haunted, and they allow people to pay to sleep overnight in the upstairs bedrooms. (Supposedly, around 50% don't even make it through the night before getting too scared and leaving!)

PROS: Historical landmark serving good meals
CONS: Could get expensive for dinner on weekdays.

My husband and I visited on vacation in July 2003. We wanted a hauntingly romantic place to stay and found it. A beautiful Victorian home once owned by a beer baron and family. Though struck by tragedy this family is still in good spirits.

We heard strange noises and saw things that were not there. Or were they. We took photos around the house and when they came back there was the shadow of a woman in the tub-from our suite, an odd misty shape in the gazebo, and a face in a hall light. Voices screaming, doors being kicked, things being knocked over.

It made my husband a believer. We told everyone about our experience and showed the photos.

We enjoyed it so much we are going back Nov 2003. And we are taking 7 friends with us. We hope they enjoy it as much as we did.
