I've stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions on business trips in the late '90's and early '00's. This is the first time I've stayed there since that time and this time it was a leisure rather than business trip.
This particular Ritz location has definitely slipped a couple of notches. It is now owned by Marriott and one can definitely tell the difference. Marriott is a great chain but it's not a Ritz. This location is one of the most reasonably priced "luxury" hotels in St. Louis but don't let the name fool you. It is more Marriott than Ritz.
I would stay again as I love the location which is outside the city. My expectations however are more middle of the road than what one would usually expect of a Ritz.
