    Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center
    Kansas City, MO
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1894 reviewsTripAdvisor (1894)

    Unlike the city's Westin, this Sheraton isn't actually inside of the Crown Center, but it is right next door and accessible via an enclosed walkway. Recent guests said the pleasant staff adds to the property's charm, but noted that rooms could use some updating. Visitors also said the lodgings are made all the more comfy with the Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed, and recommend booking a room on one of the upper floors for views of downtown Kansas City. Beyond your digs, you'll find an on-site fitness center, an outdoor pool (located on the fourth floor) and two on-site eateries. If you feel like exploring beyond the property, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to the Power & Light District and the Freight District Monday through Saturday from 3 to 10 p.m. and Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. What's more, you can earn or redeem points at this hotel through the Marriott Bonvoy program.

    The Westin St. Louis
    St. Louis, MO
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1590 reviewsTripAdvisor (1590)

    This Westin is situated near Busch Stadium in the Cupples Station area of St. Louis, making it an ideal place for Cardinals fans to hang their hat. In fact, its high rating from guests is, in part, due to its location downtown on Spruce Street. But the friendly staff, the American cuisine at the on-site Clark Street Grill, and the large, comfortable rooms definitely add to the hotel's charm, too. And if your ideal St. Louis getaway includes treatments like Swedish massages, facials or body scrubs, The Westin St. Louis offers these too, both in-room and at the Health Club & Spa. The biggest drawback for recent visitors was the high parking fees, both for self parking and valet. The hotel is home to a car rental booth, though, making it easy for guests without a car to find their way to the city's top attractions like the Anheuser-Busch Brewery or the Gateway Arch. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

Inside the guest rooms, you'll find modern comforts like coffee makers, high-speed Internet access, 37-inch flat-screen TVs and pillow-top mattresses. Outside your digs, you'll find a 24-hour gym and an 18th-floor outdoor terrace overlooking the Mississippi and the Gateway Arch, among other amenities.

    The Raphael Hotel, Autograph Collection

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1037 reviewsTripAdvisor (1037)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    The Raphael Hotel, Autograph Collection earns praise for its affordability, as well as its luxury. The hotel's location just steps from Country Club Plaza is another feather in its cap, according to recent guests. The Raphael's 126 accommodations fit neatly into a converted brick apartment building, which was built in the 1920s. Past visitors said the hotel's charming atmosphere and convenient perch in Kansas City, Missouri, are reason alone to return. The upscale American cuisine at Chaz on the Plaza also comes highly rated, and it can be enjoyed either at a restaurant table or in the comforts of your private room (with 24-hour room service). Staying in your digs will be perfect for enjoying amenities like 300-thread-count sheets, a minifridge and complimentary wireless internet access. (Keep in mind that the accommodations are relatively small.) Because the Raphael is a part of the Marriott brand, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn or apply accumulated points here for additional stay benefits.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1494 reviewsTripAdvisor (1494)
    Free WiFi

    This Sonesta-affiliated hotel, located at the northeast corner of Forest Park (and less than 10 miles northwest of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery), offers guests plenty of services. Inside your room, you'll find pillow-top mattresses, terry cloth robes and coffee makers, while property amenities include a spa, an outdoor pool, a barber shop and a sizable gym. The elegant cafes and dining options at The Chase Park Plaza Royal Sonesta St. Louis, including The Preston, Chase Club and The Tenderloin Room, are a big hit among recent guests who had the chance to explore the property and surrounding area. While most past visitors were exceedingly happy with their accomodations, some noted having a spotty internet connection.

    Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 646 reviewsTripAdvisor (646)

    Located on Washington Avenue near the convention center in downtown St. Louis, this Marriott hotel offers plenty of amenities to keep guests satisfied. In addition to a fitness center, guests can take advantage of the American cuisine (including St. Louis-style barbecue) at Zenia Bar & Grille. When you're feeling stuffed, retreat into one of 917 rooms, which feature luxury bath products and in-room coffee makers –although many recent visitors express dissatisfaction with the room size and older feel. Both business and leisure travelers do appreciate the hotel's central location, but found issue with the separate parking garage (located a block away). Still, if you're in St. Louis for a game, the hotel is less than a mile from Busch Stadium. Members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn or cash in accumulated points here.

    Hilton President Kansas City

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1284 reviewsTripAdvisor (1284)
    Free WiFi

    If you're looking for elegance and proximity to the city's top sites, the Hilton President Kansas City might be a good choice for you. The 200-plus guest rooms offer seclusion even though the hotel is located close to the nightlife and entertainment of the Power & Light District. Recent visitors appreciated the renovated guest rooms, which are outfitted with Hilton Serenity beds, blackout curtains, 37-inch flat-screen TVs, complimentary HBO and coffee makers. The biggest drawback for recent guests, though, was the limited amount of parking. When you get hungry, head to the redesigned Providence or have breakfast in the elegant Walnut Room. When just cocktails will do, retreat to the Drum Room Lounge, a KC mainstay since it first opened in 1941 (and also host to the likes of Frank Sinatra and Patsy Cline). If you're a Hilton Honors member, you can accrue or redeem points by staying here.

    Situated just about 8 miles west of St. Louis' iconic Gateway Arch and within walking distance of Forest Park, The Cheshire attracts visitors with its blend of Midwestern charm and British flair.

    The Fontaine sits just a stone's throw away from Kansas City's Country Club Plaza, which boasts several stores and dining spots. Plus, the property is conveniently located about 5 miles south of the Power & Light District and about a mile west of the University of Missouri-Kansas City. In addition to plenty of shopping options nearby, guests can easily access two parks, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Sprint Center and LEGOLAND Discovery Center (all within a 5-mile radius of the hotel).

    The Hotel Majestic St. Louis

    Free Breakfast

    The Hotel Majestic St. Louis is a solid choice for travelers who want to be close to the Gateway Arch and more of the city's top attractions. The Hotel Majestic's downtown location also makes it a convenient place for business travelers to stay  and the complimentary Wi-Fi access doesn't hurt, either. The hotel's address will also come in handy when it's time to eat: The property doesn't have a restaurant on-site, so you'll need to venture in to the neighborhood for meals (except breakfast; the property offers a free continental breakfast every morning). Meanwhile, rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and work desks, among other amenities. Though some recent lodgers said rooms were a bit outdated, other reviewers appreciated the hotel's charming history (the building originally opened in 1913). One element all travelers seemed to agree on: the friendly and helpful staff.

    The HoteLumière is located along the banks of the Mississippi River.

Yet, despite all the bells and whistles, many recent guests report a inconsistent (and sometimes even rude) service staff and rooms that lack proper cleaning.

Recent guests say the villas can feel empty during the off-season (winter to spring), and suggest going with friends to offset the expenses. Visitors also note that while the secluded lakefront surroundings are relaxing, the D'Monaco property is not within easy walking distance to Branson's top attractions.
