We have been trying to get in to this hotel for three years to see one of the events across the street at the Edward Jones Dome. The hotel is a little pricey but well worth it once you figure in parking cost, food and location. Parking is included in the room cost which is unheard of downtown (usually at least $20 per stay). They have a great breakfast which is includes eggs, sausage, potatoes, biscuit and gravy, waffles, cereal, bagels, etc. that is included in the price. At night they have snack foods such as nachos, chili, hot dogs, baked potatoes, salad and free beverages. They give you drink tickets upon check in if you enjoy alcoholic beverages (three per person) which can be redeemed in the evening. We stayed two nights and never left the building other than to go to the event and back. Security is not a problem. You can't even get on the elevator in the lobby without a key card or get into any of the stair wells. Staff is very friendly and the hotel couldn't possible get any cleaner. My only suggestion is to book at least a year in advance if you are planning on attending an event at the dome. We booked as soon as we found out the date for next years event which wasn't known until the show started and there were only 3 rooms left. Couldn't have been happier with our experience.
