I stayed at this hotel for one night, on business.
The location of the hotel is directly across from Busch Stadium. Coming from Lambert Field – St. Louis’ main airport – it is very easy to take the Metrolink. This is St. Louis’ light rail public transportation system. The stations in the airport are at both terminal 1 - American & United, among others – and terminal 2 – Southwest. The fare from the airport is only $4. Going back was only $2.25 on a Saturday. Tickets are purchased from automated kiosks located at the airport and at the stations. Don't forget to validate your ticket after purchase. The validation machine is right there. The station for the Westin is called the Stadium station. It is literally right in between Busch Stadium and the hotel. As with all public transportation in large metropolitan areas, I might not take it late at night, but Metrolink to this hotel is very convenient.
I had a very large, modern, well –appointed, spotlessly clean, king room, with a large flat screen TV. There is an upholstered chair with ottoman; a work desk and comfortable desk chair.
Unfortunately, there is no refrigerator without using the minibar. There is an in-room safe that was big enough for my Ipad, but may not have fit a large lap top.
There is a coffee set up in the room on the large L shaped work desk. Two Starbucks coffee pods are supplied; one regular and one decaf. Additional coffee pods are available for purchase. I guess they decided that having someone like me have two cups, or take a coffee pod home, was cost prohibitive.
There is a very large bathroom with both a large shower and a tub. The shower has a very interesting shower head that is positioned very high [great for tall people] and provided ample water pressure in a directly downward direction. I believe some manufacturers would call this a rainforest shower head.
There were only two difficulties with an otherwise very pleasant stay. First, when meeting with colleagues in the hotel bar, there was a small issue with fruit flies, which required that we cover our drinks with a napkin or risk have a tiny fly swimming in our cocktail. I found this very odd considering both the time of year and the fact that the rest of the hotel was spotless. The second issue was that there was no automated wake-up call provided on the phone menu. There is a clock radio with alarm in the room. I called guest services and requested a wake-up call. The call never came. Fortunately, I had actually figured out how to set the clock radio as a back-up, and my meeting was not until 10am. I did mention the missed wake-up call upon check out. The front desk staff individual was very proactive and not only apologized for the error, but additionally indicated that she was providing me with additional Starwood points as an additional way to make up for the error. This was a very proactive and guest service friendly thing to do; and was much appreciated.
