I have stayed at the Parkway many times, and am always impressed by the helpfulness of the staff and the comfortable rooms. The facilities are very clean, and the rooms are surprisingly quiet for being so close to Barnes Hospital. Even my husband, who rarely sleeps soundly in a motel, sleeps well here. The attached Applebees restaurant is a pleasant...

We left our hotel room at 6:00am to take my Mom to have brain surgery. Arrived back to the hotel at 9:55pm to get a few hours of rest. Room had not been cleaned nor were there any clean towels. Called housekeeping to ask if they could just bring us some clean towels for the night. She paused and said...

My family has stayed at the Parkway several times when they visit me and have had very positive experiences, so I had no hesitation booking a block of rooms there for guests of my wedding.

Many people staying at the Parkway are dealing with issues at the hospital. It seems like the staff here have made it their mission to make everyone comfortable and provide those extra touches that make all the difference.

This hotel has a somewhat captive audience because it is conveniently located in the midst of the Wash U Hospital complex. But the staff does not take that for granted. I made a last minute reservation to help with a sick grandchild - then cancelled when it looked like the child might be discharged early - then rebooked and extended...

The staff at the Parkway really are kind and helpful. We have been traveling there frequently the past 2 and 1/2 years. My husband had a double lung transplant and now is facing a kidney transplant and being able to stay there so close has really been a blassing.

Our grand daughter was in the Children's Hospital. The first 2 nights we were able to get hospital rates which were great. There is an enclosed hallway from the hotel to the hospital (or Siteman Cancer Center.) We felt very safe. We were also within walking distance of 30 to 40 restaurants. It was a great place to stay.
