Look, This place is really cool. I mean, they sell cigars at the front desk and everything is charged to the room. No cash exchanged and no tipping. The lobby and ball room area's are interesting and very nice to look at. The actual "hotel" part is not so great. The rooms are just very cold and old feeling and... More

The clubhouse is under extensive renovation in the guest room areas, which is very good. My room had new bathroom fixtures and tile, was spacious and neat. The balance of the clubhouse is looking pretty good, including the honorable art collection. The three Cortes Paris paintings are standouts, along with the clever Cortes-style rendering of the clubhouse street scene. Definitely... More

Booked thru Price Line. Room was very very small. It appeared to bee a converted storage area. Toilet was an industrial style, and bath area floor about 8 inches higher than sleep area. Door had louvered metal vent in lower area. You could see into hall. When we asked about Air Conditioning we were told to open a window. It... More

Great area, good price during the Cardinals Playoff run. Rooms were a little tired and the closet is as big as the bathroom. Overall not bad. The location is a 5-star so really the overall experience was a good one

From when we walked through the main door to check in the place had a feeling of being old fashioned and stuck up. The receptionist was more interested in asking us to sign a form confirming we had understood the dress code (which had only just been thrust in front of us). Whilst I understand this is a club &...

Stayed here for a business trip. The staff could not have been nicer and more accommodating. The rooms are a bit dated, but they are clean and the beds are very comfortable.

Stayed here for three nights in August. The hotel is rather unusual in having a running track, basketball courts and fitness suite on the lower floors! We stayed on the 7th floor and heard nothing at all, so no problem there. The room was large, well furnished (although the bed was a little flexible - but very comfortable!) and clean.... More

Who knew you could stay overnight at the athletic club? It was very nice. There's even a dress code for certain areas of the facility. You can use the entire health club, basketball courts, 5th floor swimming pool, and rooftop tennis courts. And you can steal all the free mints you want from the restaurant entrance. Tipping is not allowed.

Thank you for your review! It can certainly be a unique experience staying in classic downtown athletic club versus a "normal" hotel and I'm pleased to see that you enjoyed the extensive athletic amenities. Once you start it's hard to stop on those mints! Thank you again so very much for your positive review and we hope to see you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Missouri Athletic Club Downtown, is a unique, yet classic fixture of St. Louis' historic Washington Avenue since 1904. Original mahogany wood, rich leather, and lavish hand carved detailing, lay the ambiance of this one of a kind dining, lodging, athletic, and social experience. Both the Jack Buck Grill and Sportman's Club, each house their own bar atmosphere, and are known across Missouri as the best in the business for top-notch American cuisine from Chef Barton Phillips. One of the sole remaining establishments in St. Louis where cigars can both be purchased and enjoyed in traditional luxury club atmosphere, the experience is one-of-a-kind, the Art Gallery on the Lobby level is breathtaking, and the facilities are extensive to say the least. Best of all, you don't have to be a member to stay overnight in one of our 74 guest rooms and suites, and take advantage of our prime downtown location! Within walking distance to Busch Stadium, the Edward Jones Dome, St. Louis Gateway Arch, and the banks of the Mississippi River, and easily accessible to several major highways and St. Louis' own Metro Link commuter system. Athletic facilities include: a wide variety of Nautilus machines and free weights, basketball court, squash, handball, and racquetball courts, 25-yard heated indoor pool, as well as a sauna and whirlpool to relax those muscles after a full body workout. We also house a running track, full Pro Shop, and even our very own indoor golf simulator with over 50 real-life golf courses for you to "escape" to during winter months. We also offer a multitude of massage therapies, mani/pedicures, and personal training sessions. With an old-fashion feel barber barber shop on the second level, and fully equipped locker rooms, we are a one stop hub for everything that a guest-on-the-go could possibly ever need. And if your needs or agendas still hanker for more, stop by the 24-hour reception desk, where our highly trained and seasoned guest services team can lead the way to anything else that your visit calls for. Other amenities include, complimentary wireless internet throughout, complimentary business center, card playing room, billiards room, and possibly the most awe-inspiring, elegant, and distinguished ballroom in St. Louis, the MAC's very own Missouri Room. ... more   less
