Abbey: Sunny Studio Next To St. Louis University Apartment

Grand Center

***Attention Guests: During the pandemic, SF Shannon is placing a 72-hour hold on apartments between reservations. We are doing everything we can to keep guest apartments clean and sanitized. Between each stay protocols include cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces (light switches, doorknobs, cabinet handles, remotes, etc.). SF Shannon is offering Covid discounts: At checkout use code STAYHOME30 for a 30 percent discount on stays of seven days or longer. For 30 days or more, receive an automatic 50 percent discount. (Either discount is automatically applied on Airbnb). You will not pay tax on a 32-day-or-longer stay. Airbnb quotes should automatically update. For reservations through our website, SF Shannon will remove taxes on 32-day-plus stays before confirming your reservation. Thank you, and stay safe.*** The Abbey is a fully furnished studio apartment across the street from St. Louis University. Everything is included: top-quality queen-sized bed, all linens, Wifi and a full kitchen. The Abbey is perfect for your long term stay. Before your arrival, the Abbey will be stocked with welcome teas and treats, freshly roasted coffee, and light breakfast foods to start your stay. You'll also find a range of cleaning supplies that you're welcome to use and complimentary toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, Q-Tips, etc.). To keep our rates low, we don't replenish these items during your stay. Free permit parking is available, first-come, first-served. But you may not need your car here. This is a transit- and bike-friendly location. Numerous restaurants and bars, coffee houses, and all the amenities of a great urban center are within walking distance. This is an ideal location for discovering the best of St. Louis! The flat-screen TV has an antenna for local stations and a Roku for you to stream any services to which you subscribe. The full kitchen includes a large gas range, microwave, toaster, dishes, cookware, coffee maker, and everything you should need for basic meal preparation. Yes, there's a hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Dynamic pricing ensures competitive rates. We welcome same-day reservations if you contact us before 2 PM Central Time USA. Taxes are waived on stays of 30 nights or more. Sorry, while we all love them, we do not allow pets at the Abbey. Smoking is prohibited. Guest Access: The apartment is all yours! There is a shared laundry room in the basement, and shared hallways with other guests and residents. The Abbey is on the third floor of a seven story building; you may access the apartment by stairs or elevator. Parking: Parking is first-come, first-served with a permit that you'll receive upon arrival. Please note that demand is greater than supply. If permit parking is already full, you may park at any nearby metered space at no charge between the hours of 7 PM and 8 AM Monday through Saturday, and all day on Sunday. Other Things to Note: The Abbey has window-unit air conditioning. We pull the air conditioner out of the window by the middle of November to clean it and store it for the winter. We reinstall the air conditioner in April. If you feel like you need an air conditioner outside of this schedule, please discuss with us. We will do our best to accommodate. In the winter months, heat is controlled by a central boiler that runs steam through the radiators. The boiler is scheduled to run 3 to 6 times a day, depending on the weather forecast. The Abbey also features a wall-hung electric heater, if you get chilly between runs. The Abbey overlooks a busy arterial road. If you are a late or light sleeper, we have earplugs in the apartment. You may hear noise from the neighboring apartments, as the historic charm of the building does not include soundproof walls. We've had some guests complain about odors in the hallway, from residents who cook, smoke marijuana and/or cigarettes. We no longer rent to smokers, and want the building to be smoke-free! We have had this policy for eight years. However, when we instituted the policy, we did not force our residents who smoke to move. (Many residents have lived in the building for decades.) We typically will confirm your reservation during our normal business hours (9 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday Central Time USA). If you need immediate assistance, please call 314-367-1106 for after-hours service. If you're traveling with an infant, we have a pack-and-play available for a $10 one time charge. On our website, please select it on the booking screen. On Airbnb, please let us know and we'll send you an alteration request to add the charge. FAQ: “How far is it to the Fox?” The Abbey is about 0.6 miles from the Fox. You should be able to walk there in 10-15 minutes. We’ve had lots of actors from the Fox stay with us! "How far is it to the America's Convention Center?" This apartment is about 3 miles from the Center. It should be drivable in about 15 minutes, or you may take public transit, which would take about 20 minutes. “Is it safe?” Several of our staff members live in the building and have never had any problems. Owner Karen has lived just three blocks away for more than 30 years and absolutely loves her neighborhood! Anywhere you stay, whether in the city or county, you should be aware of your surroundings. Anywhere you park, you should never leave valuables clearly visible. Why that name? Owner Rachel Presley is an Anglophile at heart. She had just named another vacation rental apartment the "Westminster," because that apartment overlooks Westminster Avenue. This reminded Rachel of Westminster Abbey, and when she saw the view of the St. Louis Cathedral from the Abbey's windows - well! There could be no other name. Plus, the name simply fits the space. You'll see, if you choose to make the Abbey your St. Louis home.

This was the perfect place to stay for my month business trip to St. Louis. The one bedroom, single unit was the perfect size for me. The property description is correct, and everything is in great shape, and comes with so many kitchen appliances, toiletries, ect. I didn't need to shop for anything I need inside the home. The owners always checked in with me via email about my stay, and the housekeeping once a week was incredible. I felt so taken care of. I would recommend to anyone. There isn't much around the unit itself, but is not in bad driving/walking distance from most restaurants, groceries, ect. The building's tenants were also lovely. I never felt unsafe. Would come back to this apartment! Five out of five!

Great studio apt rental. Perfect for our four day stay.

Correspondence with the Abbey was outstanding. When our guests arrived, their room was without an Air Conditioner. The site states that A/Cs will be installed in April. When I contacted the Abby, they quickly contacted the owner and had a window unit placed in the room the very same day I contacted them. I would recommend the Abbey to anyone and will be using the venue again for future business trips. This is in Downtown St Louis. You will hear traffic, music and sirens anywhere you go. The property is safe and extremely secure. Highly recommend.

Very old furniture and creeky floors. Bathroom very outdated and sink backed up with rusty water. Bed comfortable but not very appealing studio.

The apartment was located in an older section of the city near St. Louis University. That added to its coolness. The building is very old but is kept up. Plenty of places to walk to for eating and taking pictures.

The overall management was absolutely fine, the appartment was very clean (although you could see obvious signs of aging especially in the bathroom, the squeaking wooden floor, and the noisy old airconditioner). Overall, my impressions was very good apart from the really problematic noise from the busy road outside.
