After looking at reviews for my upcoming vacation, I realized that I've been remiss about writing my own reviews. I saw many unfavorable reviews of this hotel but our experience was anything but that.
The building itself is beautiful and the lobby begs for you to sit, have a cocktail and enjoy the beauty and history of the place. The station museum allows you to fantasize about the glory days of Saint Louis.
The hotel was walking distance (albeit long) to the arch. The art pieces within the park and the old court house made for great stops along the way. We even stopped to have a peek at a Cardininal's game on our way back to the hotel.
I did not feel comfortable walking at night as we were asked for money 3 times within a half of a block. There is a fun Irish bar/restaurant within two blocks of the hotel. They were very accommodating to our son.
The outdoor pool is lovely as was a much deserved nap in the cabana.
Our air conditioner broke on the first night and management happily moved us to a new room the next morning.
Breakfast was lovely. The waitress remembered most of the guests and brought our drinks every morning without prompting. She made for a very pleasant start to the day.
I recommend a visit to the Basilica. It is by far one of the most beautiful buildings in the world.
