Nice modern hotel in the Theatre district - walking distance to SLU. New, clean, has a rooftop bar, has a restaurant with a renowned chef attached. Rooms were quiet on the 9th floor - which was green (you may know that each floor has a separate theme - rooms are green, red, yellow, or blue). Beds were comfortable. Pillows were nearly new and ideal. Interesting lighting - a moon rock for instance... Shower has high-end shampoo and soap. Definitely a boutique place with character. My only knock (keeping it from a 5) is the thermostat. You can't just "set it" to a temperature. We spent 20 minutes fiddling around moving it up then down then back up part way until we got it to stay at the temperature we wanted - trial and error...
Oh yes... I see some people commented on the neighborhood. Just do the valet parking. You're fine during waking hours. Overnight - better to be protected.
This hotel is unlike any my husband and I have stayed at before. The rooms are all color/mood themed, fastidiously clean, modern with historic charm (exposed pipes in high ceilings) and thoughtfully appointed (magnifying telescoping mirrors, thick thirsty towels, delicious smelling toiletries, powerful hair dryer, kuerig with nice assortment of coffees, teas and hot chocolate).
We bought the Live in the Sky concert package on two different weekends and had a fabulous time both times. The rooftop venue cannot be beat! The view of downtown St. Louis is breathtaking and the space where the musicians perform is so small that you feel like you are watching them on your own home patio (with an unparalleled view and full bar)!
From the moment you enter the hotel, you know you’re somewhere different that invites exploration.
