If it's about the hotel, it's a gorgeous space attached to a huge historic train station that's being repurposed. I've never stayed there. It's somewhat more distant from the downtown sights than some other hotel choices, but I wouldn't reject it because of that. That part of downtown tends to have less foot traffic, though.

As clvier1 noted, it's a beautiful space with an impressive domed lobby. Last time I was there, they projected a light show on the ceiling at regular intervals. It's not too far, if you wanted to walk to downtown. Close by food: Lombardo's (Italian), Landry's Seafood, and Hard Rock Cafe. You're a short walk to Schlafy's Tap House, where St. Louis micro brew started. You're also next to a metro link stop.

And if you are a cocktail type, I would absolutely go into the bar there.The proximity to Metrolink means Clayton, the Central West End, and other locations are easy to get to.

That Hard Rock is about to fold, if it hasn't already.

You are also very close to Lafayette Square, a very cheap Uber ride. I'd recommend PW Pizza, Eleven Eleven Mississippi, Polite Society, Hamilton's Steakhouse, Planter's House, or Element, all within a few blocks of each other.
