The Ameristar casino hotel and spot is truly one of St. Louis area's best kept secrets. As you arrive valet parking is available or if you self park like we did, it is very close to entrance. Walking into the gorgeous hotel lobby, you will be greatest with friendly staff and an ice cold bottle of water. When we made it to our room, I thought we were at the Ventian in Las Vegas. The rooms are beautiful here. Everything is luxurious. Bathrooms have private toilet area, very modern separate shower and large tube. There is even a tv in restroom with plush robes to use while you stay. Very nice bed-oh so comfy!!! And then step down into a cozy living room to see a 3rd TV in the room with refrigerator and safe. Take a look out the window and see the Missouri River. Very nice pool area with indoor/ outdoor pool, hot tub and bar. The spa is very elegant as well. It is not heavily advertised, but it is a real treat if you go. Friendly staff and outstanding service!! Excellent restaurants and casino are attached to hotel. It is also within walking distance of downtown historical St. Charles. This hotel Is a must-you will be glad you did.
