I can't rave enough about this place. During my two-night stay, I kept thinking about how the hotel was actually designed and run with its guests and their needs in mind. Other hotels take note - this is how you do it!
I showed up at 10:30 am the day of my reservation, hoping, but not expecting, to be able to check in to my room. Not only was I given my room key immediately, I was also given a free upgrade to the top floor with an awesome view of the arch. This, combined with the free breakfast and dinner, the free and fast wifi, the excellent cable TV (I loved that they had a greater variety of channels - more than what I call the usual standard business MAN package - Food Network, WE, BET, MTV, plus lots of family friendly channels), great pool/jacuzzi area, shampoo AND conditioner dispensers in the showers, free fresh-popped popcorn in the evening, the ease of printing my boarding pass in the business center, and the absolutely stellar performance and attitude of every single staff member I encountered made for one of the best hotel stays I have ever had. I booked this place based upon the reviews, but was skeptical. Could a place really be that great? I mean, seriously. Three FREE drinks/night AND FREE breakfast and dinner? It is really that great. Not only is it centrally located (smack dab by the arch, only 1 mile walk or quick Trolley ride to the amazing City Museum - GO THERE!), it is a bargain with all of the amenities you get. And it made for a really pleasant stay.
This was my first time in St. Louis and I would go back if only to have the chance to stay at this excellent hotel again. Truly wonderful.
