Reviewed October 14, 2011

I have no idea why this is the #5 hotel in STL because it is remarkable! I'm very familiar with the Delmar area, which may be somewhat off-putting because of some of the people that come through (whether due to WashU being close or the Pageant or the metro link) so I was comfortable walking around. This hotel is in the perfect location--between downtown and Clayton, and on a fabulous strip with restaurants galore. The lobby is very unique and smells wonderful due to the candles lit. Our room was a king room and we got an amazing military discount (which is highly appreciated). Our room was spacious, clean, had a great unique theme, and had a window seat where we could look out onto Delmar. The rainfall shower was unique and I really wanted to wrap up the bed and take it home with me. Even the lighting in the hallways was neat--light a low purple lighting. If you can afford it, I would highly recommend you stay here!

Stayed at the Moonrise for one night over Labor Day weekend after spending 2 nights at the very sparse Scott Inn at Scott AFB. Had joined their "My Desires" club on line and was pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded to a suite. Very beautifully appointed room and comfortable bed. Could have used more light in the living area. My rate included breakfast and the food was delicious. Had one hiccup during our trip. We ordered a taxi to the airport before we went to breakfast and the front desk clerk failed to order it. The next desk clerk noticed us waiting and immeidately followed up on the taxi. The doorman/bellhop was very concerned and apologetic even though it wasn't his fault. Our taxi arrived 30 min. later than we intended to leave leaving me stressed out after what should have been the end of a relaxing weekend.

I recently experienced my 3rd stay at the Moonrise on October 4-5, 2011 while catching the Arctic Monkeys concert at The Pageant. Having traveled regularly, the Moonrise is by far my favourite hotel. The amenties are top notch. The staff is always wonderful. In fact the last two times I have stayed at the Moonrise, Jason has checked me in at the desk. It's nice to see familiar faces when you are staying away from home. I will definitely be planning many more stays at the Moonrise in the future. And, BTW, it's always awesome meeting the bands at the rooftop bar. Definitely a perk!

My husband and I loved our stay at the Moonrise Hotel. The "moon" theme decor is very cute and everything seems new and spotless. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. We ate in the restauarant and the food was very good and well priced. The location is great for seeing St. Louis and vicinity. It's better than being downtown. The neighborhood is very safe. The staff were friendly and helpful. Oh and the roof top bar shouldn't be missed. Great sunset and good view of the downtown skyline.

My wife and I went into St. Louis to celebrate our anniversary. We got a great internet rate for the Moonrise. The hotel is very modern, clean, loaded with nice amenities, has a great staff and decorated with space and planetary art and antiques. The room was a spacious king. It was clean and had a street view. The 'minibar' didn't actually have alcohol but along with the cookies and candies there were some adult play kits available to purchase. The room had a mini-fridge and a safe for valuables. The Eclipse Restaurant kept good hours for early risers and night owls as well. The rooftop bar was a superb place for sunsets and moonrises over the city with an expansive view that reached to the Arch and downtown St. Louis. The location is a very short walk to all kinds of shopping, nightclubs and restaurants in the University City Loop. There is live music most nights in bars and restaurants along the loop. The hotel staff are very attentive and customer oriented without exception. I was asked how my stay was going by literally everyone including the lady cleaning the elevators. This is first rate lodging for business or a getaway.

Room Tip: There is a non-refundable $50 charge for pets. Superior rooms are quite nice. We didn't see the...

My daughter and I were in St Louis to tour college campuses....SLU and Wash U..this hotel was conveniently located and we LOVED the location. The student led tour at Wash U even mentioned this area as one that is favored by students. The rooftop bar with the view of downtown and the Arch is just spectular and the beautiful autumn weather couldn't have been a better combination. If she choses to go to school in St Louis, we will certainly be frequent visitors and the Moonrise will be our first choice hands down!!

Room Tip: ask for a room that faces onto DelMar or to the west, on an upper floor to see the Arch.
