My wife and i love travelling. We've been all over the world, stayed in many hotels, and have fond memories of many. We also have not so fond memories of many. Although i have very strong opinions, i rarely share them. In the case of the Moonrise, i make an exception. We travel to Saint Louis regularly. We ONLY stay at The Moonrise. Every time we have, we have been treated kindly and with a smile. The rooms have always been clean, which is a relief because my wife is a clean freak. The location is ideal since forest park and its many free "to do" opportunities are just a few blocks away. It's also not far from the Galleria Mall. Aside from those key locales, it's the crown jewel of the famous Delmar Loop, with tons of dining, shopping, and entertainment options. The onsite restuarant has one of my top three burgers OF ALL TIME! The rooftop bar is a hugely popular summer hang out with a stunning view of the city. The ambiance is fun and retro-modern while delivering a surprising feeling of comfort. The comfort part, i admit, may be from our familarity with The Moonrise, as it is our Saint Louis home away from home. It may be high-ish on the price list, but consider the free parking and it's a fair deal considering the sneaky nature of other establishments in the city that charge quietly for it in a fine print manner. As i said in the heading, give it a try...IT'S MORE THAN WORTH IT!
