If you are looking for an upscale, affordable option in St Louis, the Moonrise is a great option. We went to St. Louis to see a comedian at the Pageant Theater and the Moonrise is right next door. This new hotel is nicely appointed with a space theme and the room was nicely decorated. We had one minor issue on arrival with the room and were immediately moved. The service was fantastic. I mentioned we were celebrating our son’s birthday and they left balloons and a gift. It was a nice touch.
I booked using the AARP rate which made the room a good value for the location. They have beautiful one-bedroom suites, but none were available for the weekend we were there. We also liked the security measures. You cannot access the hotel floors without using your room card in the elevator. That prevents non-guests from getting onto any floors with rooms. There is a roof top nightclub and that is the only accessible space to non-guests.
As the Moonrise is situated on the “loop” there is always a rush of people and activity. The loop is hoppin’ with lots of eateries, but unfortunately not hoppin’ with shoppin’ so don’t plan on spending your cash on the latest fashions.
With the robust St. Louis highway system in place, we were only about 15 minutes from the main tourist attractions, such as the Gateway Arch. It was easy in and easy out so I would recommend the Moonrise to St. Louis visitors.
