We visited St Louis during the xmas holiday to see our newborn (12/21/12) grandson. Our stay in Embassy Suites, downtown was super. The breakfast was a rarity - an omelette bar added to the usual continental breakfast. The room was fine. The valet parking was worth it as the weather was subfreezing and windy. The valets really took care of us. The car was always warm and it was always there by the time we got down to the lobby. The staff was pleasant, courteous, and helpful.They made us feel welcome. And it was quiet everywhere even with a huge group of college kids arriving for a convention the day before we went home.
