“Wonderful weekend with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I was very impressed with how they converted the old back lobby into the hotel lobby. The old vault doors were nicely included in the hotel lobby. I had dinner at the hotel and had the fresh tuna dinner. It was wonderful. The rooms were clean and very nice. I did not hear any street noise. We were close enough to all activities.

I would recommend the Hilton Downtown St. Louis hotel to everyone. It was very beautiful and the staff was amazing. During our stay I used the fitness center and was extremely pleased with all that it offered for my away from home workout. The hotel is clsoe to many attractions both adult and family centered. I am going back again soon and bringing my children.

Really comfortable beds, great staff, luxury at a worthwhile price. And close to many vacation sites for our family like the Arch, City Museum and the parks. We checked in late and the woman was very kind and helpful to tired travelers. And once we hit those beds, it was a great night's sleep.

Hilton St. Louis Downtown is what it is. It's not a spectacular experience but is good for the business traveler. The hotel appears to be a renovation of an old bank in downtown St. Louis - which looks really nice. The vaults have been converted to gift shops and the foyer and main area of the hotel are very regal. You are a 5 - 10 minute walk to the St. Louis Arch and there are a number of places in walking distance. Quite honestly though, the area is a little run-down. It's sad. If you have a rental car you'll need to get a red access key from the front-desk upon check-in and then park your car in the garage across the street. No big deal. It was nice to have a garage so close and not incredibly expensive. No free WIFI when I stayed - but most Hilton Hotels require you to be a certain status as far as the Hilton Honors goes for free WIFI. No complimentary breakfast - also a negative. The buffet was depressing, but I stomached it. The workout facility was probably the best part of the hotel. Lots of equipment, nice weights, and big facility. Not much of a pool/spa though...

You're no more than 30 minutes to and from the airport - traffic doesn't appear to be too much of an issue in St. Louis. I'd honestly compare the area to Buffalo, Detroit or the like. Like I said, good stay, dated a little, and not much else to say.

Q: Would I stay again?
A: Yes.

(but it would be nice to have complimentary breakfast and free WIFI)

This hotel is really nice and clean and was decently priced for its location downtown. We were literally blocks from anywhere we needed to go.... ;-) YAY!!! But.. Because it is downtown... I can understand having to pay $23 for parking. Yet You would have to walk a small country mile with luggage with NO skywalk and across the street to check in...??? :-(. So it was not a hard decision at all when we chose to valet our car for $28. Which was ok since we had mid-morning excursions to bars and restaurants that no in-and-out fee was charged. So that was cool. Overall I liked it a lot!!!!
