This hotel is a must for romantic people on business trips. That didn't come out right, but when you think of the location, the convenience and the price, nothing comes close in downtown St. Louis. First of all, before you arrive, request (no guarantee's) a room overlooking the "Arch". It's a must. With that view you get the Mississippi River and the best Sunrises and Moonrises on this planet. I happened to really luck out by getting a higher floor and open up the curtains each night before I go to bed to just soak in the sight of one of the wonders of this modern age. You're right downtown close to Laclede's Landing, an area on the river with restaurants that stay open late and have only the highest quality of regionally prepared foods. You're close to Bush Stadium for Cardinal Games, Calico's Restaurant for French Fried Ravioli and St. Louis Style Pizza and LATE HOURS for those of you, like me, return home late from work each evening. The front desk staff (in particular Vernon) took the time to get me my room quickly, even though the hotel was sold out the night before. Sign up for the Hotel Guest Rewards program and get used to the Midwest Hospitality that St. Louis is known for. Very well run and efficient staff. Hat's off to the Management. OK, I have to say this; The hotel is maybe a little less modern than the Hyatt or the Marriott right next door, but, the view and the courteous staff more than make up for the 80's-90's decor. Oh, did I mention the price? Half the price of the competition. Spend the savings on the sights. Good Bang for the Buck. No complaints here. Book in advance otherwise this best kept secret might get out.
