We just stayed at this Westin to celebrate our anniversary and explore St Louis. We had a great experience and would highly recommend this hotel. The location is perfect for walking around downtown- it is a one mile walk to the City Museum (good place to take kids), and it is a less than 10 minute walk to the Gateway Arch. Thanks to a very friendly and helpful staff member (Eileen) at check in, we got a room on the top floor with a great view of the arch. People have mentioned noise from the train and the stadium at night- we had no trouble. We heard the train here and there during the day if we were in the room, but at night, we didn't notice it. There was no game, so I can't comment on stadium noise. The use of the gym is included, the rooms are modern and comfortable, and the food at the restaurant was good. The only thing it lacked was a pool, so if you are looking for that perk, keep looking. Overall, we enjoyed it and would go back if we went back to St. Louis in the future.
