I've stayed at this hotel 4 times now and have loved it each time. The hotel is affordable and clean. It is a bit away from downtown attractions such as Busch Stadium and the arch but with the free parking, free breakfast, free happy hour, free popcorn and pop and the free managers special "appetizer's" every night how can you go wrong. It is next to Union Station and though there isn't much left in Union Station still neat to walk through and go to the cardinal store etc. This has become a yearly trip to a St. Louis Cardinals game and a stay at this hotel. The staff is always friendly and willing to give you directions or help you in any way.
