We stayed at this cute, boutique property for an overnight trip to St. Louis for a friend's wedding. I am giving it 5 stars because of the attention to detail, cleanliness and friendly staff, as well as the unique styling of this (I think) one of a kind property. From the outset, even before our arrival, the service was extremely friendly and helpful! I called a couple of days in advance to request an early check-in, due to the fact that we could not arrive until the day of the wedding. I explained that we were flying in for the wedding from ATL that morning for the wedding the same afternoon and would love to be able to be in a room by noon so that we would not be forced to travel in wedding dress clothes. They were very helpful and in fact, were able to get us checked in by noon as requested! Now, I must also share that there was a block of rooms reserved for the wedding party and guests and the hotel assigned us all to the 4th floor, and, on top of that, security and privacy were assured by the fact that only those of us who were booked on the 4th floor could access the 4th floor by swiping our key card!!
On to the room....The room was very comfortable and attractively designed in a nouveau style. The bathroom was very chic with a vessel sink and glass enclosed overhead rain shower. The toiletries were luxurious Spa products, including a body butter, and Spa sea salt body wash that I decided to try out in the shower the next morning. I was so pleasantly surprised by the soothing and invigorating mint aroma! What a great way to wake up!!!! Speaking of waking up....the next morning, we were sorry to have to drag ourselves out of the comfy bed to go catch our flight home!! It was definitely the most comfortable hotel bed we have ever experienced!!! Oh!!!I almost forgot...one more tiny touch in the bathroom....I opened the shower cap to use it and found a small elastic hair scrunchie to use with the shower cap!!! One other detail I have never experienced in a hotel room before.....an umbrella for our use in the closet!!!
Other details of this property that make it a one of a kind:
The Space and Lunar themed decor are unique and really fun!!! Be sure that you wander the lobby areas and go look at the photos of the Apollo era astronauts with hotel owner, Joe Edwards that grace the walls!! There are also many art pieces that are reminiscent of great 1950's Space Art!! Be sure to look up at the Chihuly glass chandelier in the lobby and go see "Robo Dynamo" the totally cool jukebox piece in the Eclipse restaurant!!! They have a rooftop bar area, that we never had a chance to go up and see. We hear that the views of the city from up there are just terrific!! I really wish we had another day or two to enjoy the Moonrise as well as the Delmar area.
If you are planning a trip to St. Louis, you really should go stay at the Moonrise!!!
