“Very Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

My wife and I spent the evening at the Casino Queen November 9th. The Hotel was a pleasant surprise as i did not expect such nice accomodations. The lobby area was very elegant and our room was extremely spacious and clean. We had a view of the riverfront and when the sun went down the lights of downtown St Louis and the arch were nothing short of spectacular. I can only imagine what a wonderful location this would be to view the fireworks on the 4th of July on the riverfront.

I did not like the bed, however other than that, I have absolutely no complaints.

The check in associates were extremely nice and willing to help with anything we had.

Obviously the proximity to the Casino is fantastic.

I urge anyone looking for a wonderful evening getaway to consider the Casino Queen Hotel. .

We booked our stay here whilst travelling Route 66 on a Harley Davidson motorbike, with the main intention of going up "The Arch". Unfortunately it was closed due to the government shutdown - such a shame as it was on our wish list! The view from the hotel is great - pay the extra for a river view and if you like to walk, it is easy to accessible via the road bridge which has an adequate footpath.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra for one for a view of the River and Arch

Stayed here for one night. Room was very spacious, modern, and clean. Had a great view of the Mississippi River, the Arch, and STL skyline. Hotel staff was helpful and courteous. Room key is required for elevator access and entry to free continental breakfast adding a sense of security. We ended up eating at the breakfast buffet in the casino. It was good for the price. The casino was nice enough for me considering I'm not a gambler. No Poker tables though. We took the MetroLink train across the river and enjoyed downtown STL and the Galleria Mall. The train depot is just across the parking lot. Very convenient! No complaints!

We got a nice and friendly welcome in the reception. They had difficulties finding our booking, but that was due to a mix-up with my middle initial (happens every now and then). The room was on 5th floor, facing the Mississippi and Gateway Arch. Great view, also after dark.
Very large room with comfortable beds. But no internet functioning.
We had a superb dinner in the casino (reviewed separately), but the breakfast was below the hotel's otherwise great standard. No tea, only coffee. Very little to choose from. And in spite of the inviting name "The Garden Room" a very dull square room with no windows at all.
The location of the hotel is good, if you are here with a car. You are "on the wrong side" of Mississippi, East Saint Louis having nothing to offer except for the casino and the view towards Saint Louis proper.
Be aware that children under the age of 21 are not allowed in the hotel, not even with their parents.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river, as high up as possible.

I've stayed here a dozen times and the place works very well for the purpose. Under $100 for a big room that was modern and clean. Smoking rooms were no problem and the front desk staff was helpful and friendly. Indoor pool with alot of chlorine. Easy access to downtown St.Louis via the Metro Train = $2.25 each way, or take the free shuttle to the Cardinals game. It runs about 4 times starting 90 minutes before all home games. No guests under 21 and the basic free breakfast runs 6-8am only. They want you to buy the buffet for $7.95 at the casino restaurant from 8-11am, which was good, but not the greatest you've ever had.

The hotel is located just over the river from the arch, worth paying extra for city view & the arch, train station next to car park makes it easy to see St Louis. If you like a little gamble then you have a good casino next door.

Asked for a river view, and the very pleasant and friendly receptionist obliged us and wow what a view. If like us you wanted to come to St. Louis to see " The Gateway Arch " this is the place. You look directly across the river at this fascinating structure. We walked across the bridge and rode the pod style lift to the top of the 630' arch.( $10 pp, […] a bargain ) Amazing room, every thing we wanted. Had a swim in the indoor pool before enjoying breakfast. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Request a river view
