If you are looking for a cozy, comfortable, aesthetically pleasing hotel with social benefits Ameristar St.Charles is for you. The casino and lobby alone are remarkably beautiful, and when you get to your room not much changes except, well, the privacy. My room overlooked the indoor/outdoor pool area (not the river, which was what I was hoping for but this was also nice). The room was the perfect size, the lounging area being my place of choice, and the bathroom second. The supplied hygiene products were soothing as well as the shower/bath. I found it simple to relax and read with minimum distractions, however there is the occasional group walking down the hall. I thought it was great.
