I visited this hotel during the last weekend of March 2012. I stayed with friends and we all had a great time!
As soon as you walk in, the ambiance and elegance is top-notch. Piano music, chandelier, fine carpet and furniture- and all spotless, too!
The staff is extremely helpful. I'd booked on a third party site and did not receive the room I wanted. Right away they set off to upgrading me at a reasonable price to the room we all wanted- a king sized suite, smoking allowed. The suite had the feel of a small apartment and was well decorated. The internet access was up to par, and although the "balcony" involved climbing through a window, we all had a blast. At the end of a long night, 4 people comfortably shared the plush Memory Foam king size bed, and woke up feeling alert and refreshed!
This hotel's continental breakfast is by far the best I've come across.The food is delicious, the fruit is fresh, the staff is friendly and you can even have an omelet made ready to order!
I'd have to say that for families with small children, do not expect much.Overall I felt the pool was low grade and the game room left much to be desired. As St. Louis is still a fun town for families and is located less than 20 minutes from the St. Louis Zoo, I wouldn't deduct the pool and games from my score. There's still plenty to do for the kids!
We were attending a show at the Pageant theater that weekend, and there was a shuttle out front that drove us to and from the theater free of charge. That was a plus indeed!
Well designed/furnished, great location, easy to find, plenty of incidentals to keep you pampered, a great internet cafe, sensible prices and a lovely staff made our trip top notch. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others, and will be staying there in the future!
