Sprawling homes and unique 1920s architecture give the Clayton neighborhood a unique beauty. From The Dorchester, you’re just a 15-minute walk away from the Washington University In St Louis campus or a 10-minute bus ride. On the way to school, grab a delicious tempeh reuben or an organic smoothie from the vegan Seedz Café. If it’s a caffeine fix you’re in need of, Kaldi’s Coffee offers sustainable fair trade coffee.
Pick up a coffee at The Dorchester’s Resident Lounge on your way to class or head there to hit the books after class. Come home after a long day on campus and have a relaxing soak in your Italian, porcelain tile bathtub. With a spacious closet and lots of storage areas, you’ll have lots of space to put your books and clothes. In the evening, invite your classmates over for dinner, which you can whip up on your granite countertop in the kitchen. Use fresh ingredients from nearby Schnucks or the Clayton Farmers Market, where you’ll be supporting local produce.
Enjoy the stunning views of the 1300-acre Forest Park from your private balcony at The Dorchester. If you still have energy left to burn, head to the on-site fitness center for a workout with friends. Forget about looking for a parking spot when you come home from college as there’s a 24-hour valet available in the parking garage and if you’re too busy to clean, housekeeping services are available to make your life easier.
