My husband and I recently drove Route 66 from Chicago to LA and chose the Moonrise Hotel for our overnight in St. Louis. I love boutique hotels and unique concepts and he's obsessed with space travel so it seemed a perfect fit. The lighting at this hotel is everything. From their glitzy Chihulyesque chandelier and glowing rainbow steps in the lobby to the giant moon atop the roof dominating the skyline in the Loop.
Check in was quick and easy and our room was very spacious. There was a fridge and coffee prep area, large desk, big tv and comfy sitting area. The bathroom had a separate shower and Jacuzzi. The bed was very comfortable and the variety of lighting options in the room was very cool. All the vintage moon pictures in the room really just made it. A far cry from average boring hotel art of flowers and lakes. The room also had a lot of nice extra touches like kushy bath amenities, cozy robes, a soothing noise machine for bedtime, ipod docks and free wifi.
There are lots of other things to love about The Moonrise. They are pet friendly. All around the lobby and downstairs bar area are cases of space memorabilia. Old toy robots, moon landing mementos, rocket ornaments, astronaut autographs, Star Trek souvenirs and so much more. The rooftop bar is ultra trendy, but awesomely decorated. The hanging lights from the ceiling are a great concept, as are the oversized moon loungers on the terrace. The view of the city from up here is fantastic. I also enjoyed the whole area of The Loop. Lots of very original boutiques and restaurants. A lot of big neon signs and old theaters gave it a true vintage feel. I am glad we chose to stay in this area as well as this hotel.
