    The Westin St. Louis
    St. Louis, MO
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    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 and the large, comfortable rooms definitely add to the hotel's charm, too. On-site you'll find an Italian eatery that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a fitness center that is open 24 hours per day. A big drawback for recent visitors, however, were 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.

Should you crave some activity away from the casino floor, seek solace at Judy's Velvet Lounge, where you can sip cocktails as you watch live musical performances.

    Located on Washington Avenue near the convention center in downtown St. Louis, this Marriott hotel offers plenty of amenities to keep guests satisfied.

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.

    HoteLumière
    St. Louis, MO
    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    The HoteLumière is located along the banks of the Mississippi River. On a map, it looks like it's situated near the Gateway Arch, but keep in mind that you'll have to cross a major highway to get there. Guests note that the main reason to book here is to hit the slots and card tables – this hotel is connected by skywalk to the 24-hour Lumière Place Casino. A stay at the hotel will earn you access to a pool, fitness center, the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis Spa and several restaurants with cuisine ranging from sushi to pizza. Guest rooms come complete with complimentary Wi-Fi access, two flat-panel TVs and iPod docking stations. 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.

    The Hotel Majestic St. Louis
    St. Louis, MO
    • Free Breakfast

    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free Breakfast

    • Free WiFi

    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.
