“Better than average, not five stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a big hotel, two towers connected by a walkway. The East tower is newer, the West tower has the executive floors and lounge. Valet parking pick up is closer to the West tower. Valet service was good - if the hotel is busy they can fill up. Front desk service efficient. Exec level hallways furnished a little nicer than other floors. Sound from the halls is noticeable (more a problem of people not using inside voices). Rooms overlooking the ballpark also overlook a construction site that can be noisy during working hours. Room was clean except for air intake vent in the bathroom. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom well furnished with the expected amenities and large, soft towels. Bed was comfortable with a nice assortment of pillows. Television had all the cable channels; no in-room movies or access to folio to review. Closet has a safe and well stocked with hangers. Exec level room had a refrigerator. Lounge was closed. Breakfast buffet in the restaurant has a large selection of very nicely presented fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, oatmeal, basic breads and commercial tasting bagels (not so good on the bagels). Coffee and OJ offered by server. Good juice, not great coffee. Hot buffet has biscuits, eggs, breakfast meats, pancakes - I didn't try the hot line but it looked fresh and people seemed to be enjoying their selections. Depending on server it's satisfactory to very nice. Buffet cost, if not part of room package, seems on the high but not excessive end.

Large hotel. Check in is in the east tower, but all guest appeared to be in the west tower. Typical Hilton room. Low ceiling in the shower. At 5'10" I could touch it with no problem. $18 to self park. $25 to valet. Slow elevators. Great location for catching a game.

Room Tip: Ask for downtown view.

Went and stayed there for the Missouri Valley Basketball Tournament. Rooms were in
very good condition. The breakfast service was very good. The hotel is within walking distance for the Arch, the Scottrade Center and of course Busch Stadium. Excellent spot to be
for any event or trip to downtown St. Louis. The only drawback is the inadequate number of elevatorsfor the size of the hotel. But the facility and staff were very good.

This hotel is right in the middle of downtown St. Louis, and in a very good location. It's only a block away from Busch Stadium, so if you want to see a Cardinals game while you're there, it's a very short walk away. Also, the hotel is a few blocks away from the Gateway Arch and easy to walk to.

The hotel itself is alright. The lobby and bar area is modern and very clean, however, this area would be right under the Eastern Tower. The walk to the Western Tower changes that theme, and this area of the hotel seems older and more out of date. However, the rooms themselves are nice, but small. We had a good view of Busch Stadium, which was really nice, however, you're not close enough to the stadium to really know what is going on, so don't expect to have a great view of a game and know what's going on.

I liked the pool and spa area, which are both on the second floor and have a view looking toward the stadium. The spa is very large, and is a good area to come to and relax.

One major flaw of this hotel is the self parking, which is across the street and about a block south. This can be tiresome carrying luggage from your car to the hotel, since you have to walk up and cross the street. Depending on how much you pack, it might be worth it to pay extra for the valet.

The prices at the hotel bar/restaurant are pretty high, however if you go through the bar and through some restaurant seating areas, you can find a small pizza place that is built in the same building. The prices aren't bad and their pizza is great, so if you want to dine somewhere without going too far or paying too much, it's a good place to get some cheap food.

The hotel isn't bad, and if you're looking for a place that's right in downtown (with the added bonus of a great view of Busch Stadium), this is a really nice place, however, I felt some areas of the hotel needed some attention to decor, as well as bigger rooms.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. I do want to point out that when you stay with us again and if you should decide to is self-parking, don't hesitate to pull into our driveway and drop off your luggage before parking. Our self-parking option is located directly across the street from the hotel, cater-corner to the Southeast of the hotel, but it could be cumbersome to carry luggage, so don't hesitate to drop off your luggage first! Otherwise, thank you for your review and we do hope to see you again soon!

The team is amazing. Valerie from housekeeping not only answered my question about how to get to metrolink from the hotel, but even came RUNNING AFTER ME when I exited the hotel and turned the wrong way. She came out of her way IN THE RAIN to tell me to go the other way, and directed me to the right track. Please acknowledge her accordingly! Bill, manager of front office, was also super warm on check-out as well. He was right to say his whole team just loves all of us visitors and just wants us to have a great time. The warmth they show is just amazing. Thank you!

This hotel has pretty awesome location, but the hotel itself is terribly cramped. The rooms are tiny to get as many as possible facing the ballpark. The club lounge is so-so. The elevator system is overburdened in the east tower and look forward to taking the stairs if you must get down or up in a hurry/less than five or ten minutes if it happens to be a crowded time.

Room Tip: Seeing into the ballpark is neat, but not really necessary.
