I know it's boring to start off a review with "after reading some of the reviews on here I was fearing the worst" but it's absolutely true. Obviously we were either very lucky or the hotel has bucked its ideas up. We arrived late on a Friday night and were dealt with very prompty and politely before being shown to a clean, decent-sized room. The rooms seems to surround the small indoor pool and jacuzzi. We only used the bar once but it was very nice with a chatty barmaid. As for the location; people have described it as being in a bad part of town. Let's face it, St Louis is a typical big city but the location of the hotel only looks bad because it is right behind the massive convention centre. Within a 1 minute walk, we were on a busy street with bars and restaurants and only a 10 minute walk from Laclede's Landing with its plethora of eateries and bars. Another 5 minutes gets you to the Arch and waterfront. We had a very good stay here and would recommend it to anybody.
