Hotel with swimming pool

My husband, I and our 3 kids (4, 7 and 9) will be in St. Louis for 3 nights April 22-25. We plan to see City Museum, the Zoo, the Arch and the Budweiser Brewery. (I'm so bummed Grant's Farm is only open on the weekends at that time.) We'd like to stay in a hotel that's family friendly and has a nice swimming pool. We'll have a car, so we don't need to stay super close to the attractions, but for convenience sake, we don't want to be too far out. The main thing, though, is that it have a nice indoor swimming pool. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your input!

As a local, I haven't stayed at many area hotels. Most Drury Inns have an indoor pool

The Drury Inn Forest Park has always been spoken of favorably on this forum - very convenient to the Zoo, Botanical Garden, Science Center, restaurants on the Hill. Also pretty easy ride downtown. Not sure how big the pool is (my guess is it's nothing special).

i'm guessing you haven't looked at hotel rooms yet.....that's First Robotic's Competition.....which is a competition of about 60,000 kids from 10 different states.....and there are very few hotel rooms available in the city, or county that weekend....and even less with 2 beds so bring an air mattress even if you do find a room (just in case...cuz even if you score a double / double chances are when you check in it might just be a king bed)

i would pick a different weekend....or check airbandb.com for alternative accommodations....

downtown indoor pools:

- Lumiere Casino

- Hampton Inn (small, very loud)

-Embassy Suites (small, super loud, overcroweded w/ kids)

-Renaissance Grand - small, barely used never any kids - convention hotel

-Hilton Ballpark - overrun with drunks usually

- Hilton at the Arch - swimspa (not really a pool)

- Drury Inn's - most have a small indoor poo (most are very loud, and crowded as these are big family hotels due to free breakfast, internet, local calls, etc)

- Hampton Inn near St Louis Zoo has an indoor pool

Thanks for your replies. We won't be there over the weekend, so hopefully that helps with hotel availability. It looks like there are some rooms available at some of these places, so now I just have to pick. I appreciate your help.
