Rated 3 out of 5 by 1stnlast Too many extras to pay for
I picked up the hotel because, of the recommended options by my Vendor, it had a shuttle, both to/from the Airport and in the area, so I'd save the car rental. The rate was the same as the chain I usually stay at. In theory.
Tuns out the shuttle stops at 10 PM (I arrived at 11) and in the morning "it's very crowded, we recommend you take a taxi". Taking the one to the airport at my departure meant getting there 2 hours ahead of time. So I ended up paying 4 taxis, additional internet access charges (who does that in 2012?) and an 18% mandatory tip on room service (in addition to the delivery charge). I had to order Room Service because I needed to work. Food was just below average and, with the mandatory tip included, too expensive for the quality received.
I'm not complaining about the cost, which was in line with expectations, but extra expenses for the same stuff are never a good thing.
Been avoiding Sheraton after a similar experience a while back. Guess I should've continued to do the same.

I have to say that although it seems cliche, I feel like I really did experience the famous Midwestern (I know; not Southern) hospitality that I had heard of. This was a nice hotel to start with, but everyone was so friendly - even maintenance staff is passing saying a genuine hello! - that I was touched. I'm from the Los Angeles area; which I have never thought of as rude, but is perhaps too fast-paced to slow down & say hello as much.

The staff here is fantastic. Everyone at the front desk goes above and beyond. The bellmen and shuttle drivers are as friendly as can be. The location is much better than I ever would have expected, and it's just a short drive or train ride away to downtown St. Louis.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Christa37 Overall good
This was my second stay at this hotel. No major issues. I do wish that
1) the bathrooms were larger with adequate space to lay out hair dryer, curling iron, make up, etc. Getting ready in the bathroom is a juggling act.
2) I stayed in a room on the 16th floor. There was not a full length mirror. Would have liked to have had that.

The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Very welcoming.
If I had a criticism it would be the elevators. They were slow and the waits were long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LordB When in Clayton...
Hotel is a good business hotel. Free airport shuttle is excellent, and hotel is just 5 mins walk to the Metro Link to get to Downtown St Louis. Most Clayton office towers are within a 10 minute walk of the hotel, as is Clayton's main drag with its eateries.
Essay, the check in clerk, was extremely helpful. Lobby is clean and bright and bar staff friendly. Club lounge on 14th floor a bit dingy and small, but well stocked food and drink for both breakfast and evening snack.
Swimming pool is a good size, but a hot tub would be a nice addition for winter in STL (it was only 17 Fahrenheit outside during my stay).

Rated 3 out of 5 by robsnell12 Really slow elevators
I recently stayed at the Sheraton at Clayton Plaza (1/21/2013 - 1/24/203). My stat was average across the board except for the elevators.
I stayed on the 14th floor and had to take the elevator to and from my room to the lobby. I consistently waited for 7 - 10 minutes every morning for the elevator. My fellow teammates had the same experience and it played havoc with our timing and schedule in the mornings and evenings. It was so bad to the point that we are not going to stay at this location in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jim57 Fitness Center has issues
I have been staying at this hotel for 6 years now and the equipment in the Fitness Center is being neglected. I was at the hotel at the beginning of Decembert and 1 of the 3 tredmills was not working. Now, 2 of the 3 do not work. On the one that was working, the headphone jack was not working. I hope they have it fixed by the next time I return or it will be my last stay.

One elevator was out of service causing long waits to get to other floors.
Club lounge was unexpectedly closed in the AM - unable to get coffee early in AM like I usually do.
Cable TV was not operating on gym equipment - disappointing.

I have to stay at this hotel when in St Louis for the location. The elevators are slow, the food is not that great and the bathrooms are very small and lack any room for anything in some rooms.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nickname2013 one minor detail
The room was fine, but the coffee maker is designed for the tiny packets, while the room only had the 4-inch coffee disks...I was able to fold the packet up to fit, but it wasn't quite right. Other than that, no problems. Wakeup call came in as requested. TV remote worked. I would have liked to have free wifi in the room rather than having to tromp down to the lobby.

Everyone was very helpful. They really wanted to make sure that our stay was the best. Rita in the bar was very helpful. I can't say enough about her. Sandy, who drove the transportation van, gave us her cell number so we could reach her quicker. Everyone very helpful and friendly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by becsterla Generally good, with a few cons
Our experience at this hotel was very positive in that the staff are extremely kind, helpful and generous. The pool is nicely heated, making it fun for the children. The shuttle service is not only to and from the airport, but will service you in the area. This is quite useful. Room service was adequate but not exceptional.
The cons are that the club lounge is outdated and dark. The biggest con is the heater in the room is very loud and the hotel staff acknowledged they know about the problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Pditty24 Terrible customer service
I was overcharged over $200 for my stay. Myself and my fiancé were coming back from Afghanistan for the new year. Every time I tried to resolve the issue, I was sent to an answering machine and not contacted. I was also not notified of the extra fees like parking and hold fees until I was at the hotel. I don't recommend anyone waist their hard earned money for this small room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Surprised0113 Not the SPG we know :(
The Valet Staff was wonderful, but our check in experience was awful. The Representative was on the telephone the entire time, did not acknowledge myself or my husband. He gave us a room that was the complete opposite of our typical request and was not helpful with the standard items. This property was disappointing in so many ways.

Staff was very personable and accomodating to our needs. We came to the Clayton Sheraton for a family get together and requested that all 4 reserved rooms be on the same floor and close to each other. Our needs were met and everyone enjoyed their stay.

I made my reservation online(sheraton) and then when i checked in, the front desk attendant told me that as I made my reservation trhough Expedia, i was not getting any points. I am pretty positive that i booked through Sheraton website. so that disapointed me a lot.
