I live just outside of Chicago, and attended a convention held at the Westin St. Louis. We (hubby and I) did not know what to expect (we have heard less than stellar reviews of the St. Louis area--and had just watched "National Lampoon's Vacation"), but the Westin was a nice surprise. After a loooong drive, we were met with a smile in the pouring rain by an unbrella-bearing doorman, who wisked us inside. We had elected to upgrade to the club floor for $40 additional per night. Check-in was quick, although I was surprised to find out that the lounge for the club-floor was located on a different floor than our room (we were on the 3rd floor, and the club lounge was located on the 4th).

Just walking through the hallways is an experience in itself. No dull, boring, long narrow hallways for the Westin--the hallways twist and turn, and go around corners and across glassed-in bridges. Definetely makes the walk to your room more interesting!

Our room was a good size, and featured the "heavenly bed" that the Westin is famous for. It was comfortable, and a notch above the normal hotel bed.

The bathroom was large, and the shower beautiful, with a seamless glass shower door and granite countertop. The fluffy robes in our room were missing--all that we found was a hanger with a hang-tag that gave instructions as to how to purchase the robe (we let the front desk knew we didn't take the robes--I had visions of receving a bill after checkout).

The really disturbing thing about the bathroom was the art on the wall above the tub that contained quotes about suicide and death. Not the most relaxing thing to read while soaking in your tub!

Food was average. There's only one restaurant, and room service serves pretty much the same stuff as the restaurant.

The hotel is located right next to the new Cardinal's stadium, and my sports-aware co-workers were extremely happy about that (there was a game that night). I met alot of families in the elevators that were there for the game, and they also raved about the convenience of the location.

All in all, if I'm in St. Louis again, I will stay at the Westin!

Exactly what you expect from a Westin hotel. The room was immaculate and very large. The bathroom was luxurious. Fabulous glass enclosed shower. Very helpful staff. Walked down to Beale on Broadway and heard some blues and had a brew and some food. Wish we could have stayed for more than one night,. If you can afford the price the stay is nice.

Stayed here one night with our 2 young boys and loved it. The room was beautiful and amazingly spacious. Everything was exceedingly clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and responsive. Location was ideal in that it sits immediately adjacent to a "Metro" station. My only complaint would be a small one: the quality of the food in the restaurant was good but not great. Nonetheless, we will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. The hotel is super posh - we loved it. Our room looked out at the stadium (we were there for some baseball games so this was fine with us). We rode the metro from the airport to the hotel and it drops you off right in front of the hotel. The bed was very very comfortable. The bathroom is huge! We had a big tub and a stand alone shower and the sink has plenty of counterspace. The hotel restaraunt is very good although a tad bit expensive. All in all a great stay and we would definitely stay here again.

Our second visit to the Westin St Louis.

The beds are devine and the rooms spacious with good size well equiped bathrooms. It can be a long walk from the elivators to your room, but it is modern clean fresh., and very comfortable especialy if you have been traveling and need to relax.

Sfaff were welcoming and helpful. Did not use the resturant this time as found the menu was trying to hard and had no clear theme. I look for simple food cooked very well and this was not for me. Also found that it was not great value for money and that there are good resturants nearby that offered better value.

Its generaly a good hotel with the stadium next to it, but be prepared to walk if you want anything else

We stayed at the Westin soley based on comments from tripadvisor.com, and I was a little disappoined. Great service is what makes a place like this work, and we had a hard time finding anyone who seemed to care that we were spending $300 to stay at their hotel. The rooms are big, and bathrooms are spacious. Room service was ridiculous. Don't order the mac and cheese... it's from Kraft straight out of the box. Very odd. I think we'll try someplace else next time we're in town.
