Just finished a 4 night stay here last week during the FIRST Robotics World Championship and enjoyed every day of my stay. I couldn't have asked for a better hotel that was centrally located in a great city. Yes it's an older property but the upkeep is well done. The front desk staff was pleasant, courteous, professional and friendly upon checking in and checking out. My room on the 21st floor was big and comfortable. It was clean, smelling fresh and equipped with just a fridge no micro. The bedding was comfortable which enabled me to sleep peacefully each night. I had a clear view of the Arch from my room which was spectacular!
I did use their business centre but not the fitness room or the pool. There is a restaurant located in the hotel, breakfast was not included with my room rate, but a short 3 minute walk up Pine St is a St Louis Bread (Panera). I did however eat in the restaurant for dinner and found it to be a little on the pricey side. I guess one would expect that when staying at a hotel located in the heart of a major urban downtown.
The Arch is just behind the hotel and I highly recommend that you go up into the Arch to get great views of St Louis and to the east views of the great Mississippi River. Bush stadium is just a hop, skip and a jump away as well as the Edward Jones Dome and the Convention Centre. There was plenty to see and do within walking distance from the hotel and plenty of resturants also.
All in all I would definitely stay here again.
