Pros: It's location and it seemed to be just a bit fancier than most standard hotels. It was also less expensive than another hotel located 2 blocks away.
Location: Plenty of options to choose for food and bars.
Stayed one night. Excellent location to walk to restaurants. Parking is limited at the hotel so I recommend to valet and with everything nearby, you don't need a car anyway.

Pros: I like is historic relevance and it is easy in an out. Great valet service!! Close to everything downtown including Harold's Donuts.
Cons: Housekeeping needs more training and supervision. 1st night room not made second toilet not cleaned.
Location: Check out the Restaurant 38 and Harold's donuts.
Second time back. Overall experience great. Housekeeping needs improvement. Listen guys your price does not reflect the quality of this portion of the staff. Clean my toilet please!

Nice hotel close to Mizzou Campus

We had tickets to a Mannheim Steamroller Christmas concert at Jesse Auditorium and wanted a nice hotel close by. It was a beautiful, but cold (low 30's) night, and we had no problem walking. Before the concert we had wine and appetizers at Glenn's Cafe, and after the concert had a relaxing glass of wine at The Vault. Was disappointed to learn the cupcake shop had permanently closed. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this venue to anyone.

Pros: We used the laundry service which was nice because I don't have to do any now that we are home but the clothes we were wearing. The staff was great.
Cons: Room service menu wasn't as kid friendly as I would like.
Location: Only stayed one night but it was just a 2 hour drive to The Gateway Arch in St. Louis on our way home.
Everything was wonderful. My girls and I can't wait to have a reason to come back to The Tiger Hotel in Columbia, MO.

Pros: In town, walking distance to Mizzou.
Cons: For an upscale hotel it really could use High Definition programming on the provided flat screen tv.
Visited this hotel while dropping my child off at college. Right in town, great location. Try to get a higher floor as the view from my 2nd floor room was nothing special. Room was pleasant and clean.
