Set near the downtown riverside, Four Seasons offers rooms and suites that overlook the Gateway Arch and the Mississippi River. Over 200 spacious accommodations are decorated in light, airy fabrics in neutral hues. Flat-screen televisions, DVD players and wireless Internet are in the rooms. Large, marble bathrooms showcase deep soaking tubs and rain showers. Children under age 18 stay free with parents. Child-sized robes, complimentary infant accessories, cribs and childproof items are available for the rooms. Kids also receive milk and cookies on arrival, coloring books, board games, books and toys. A children’s DVD library offers movies. Kids for All Seasons is a children’s program that runs supervised activities for kids ages 5 to 12 years. The program takes place from June to September. Babysitting services can also be arranged. A large, outdoor pool is on the pool deck of the hotel. Next to it lies a children’s spray ground for younger kids. An onsite restaurant serves up more than spectacular views of Gateway Arch.

Classy looking decor.......but arrived 1: 25pm...as of 3:15 pm room still not ready. Lunch menu unique to say least....(vs appetizing)..... 5 bucks for soda in bar while I waited for room...nothing really walking distance. One street to hotel entrance blocked off. Tried to call front desk from 8th floor lobby, no answer.....three staff at front desk..when i subsequently walked down..no line...
In summary not worth the money...it just does not get any better with each successive visit...despite "management responses" to these ratings/reviews...
Overall I rated average, as staff is nice, but alot of hotels EXECUTE much much better...
Saw one of my colleagues arrive at and go to check in at 3:20pm...her room was ready!
We had been warned by friends that the hotel is not located centrally. There are a bunch of highways and empty lots around the hotel, besides other casino related properties. But we were using the hotel as a crash pad for touring Washington University, which while on the other side of town, was a pretty easy 12-15 minute Uber ride away. The room, bathroom, amenities and gym all were lovely, as expected of a Four Seasons. Going to the elevators from the lobby, there is an ugly billboard outside in the reflecting pool; I guess it's casino related. I think the actual hotel property is nicer than the Ritz, which is closer to Wash U, and the Four Seasons was also about half the price when we were booking.
