Amazing beautifully decorated modern spacious rooms (we had a king studio suite) which have all of the little touches you hope for - nice flat screen with lots of channels, free wireless, and washable duvet covers that you don't feel afraid to touch.
The breakfast is amazing - a half step above other Hampton inns. They have waffles, ready-made oatmeal w toppings similar to Starbucks - slivered almonds, golden and regular raisins, and cinnamon sugar. And while I didn't have any - they also had typical pastry options and muffins, English muffins and bread for toast, hard-boiled eggs, yoplait, fruit and a few hot food options that were very good.
They also have hot cookies at 8 when you return to the hotel. Delicious. They also always had coffee and didn't run out like many hotels.
And the service is beyond compare. Elizabeth came and talked to us and told us all about St. Louis and was extremely helpful and truly friendly - it wasn't forced seeming. The breakfast staff were quick with spills and made sure everything was fully stocked.
The only parts I would call just typical is the pool and fitness center. Since the hotel is obviously newer, I didn't see any broken equipment. They do have nice pre-cor machines and a wide range of hand weights and looked like medicine balls.
I'll never understand how the "swanky" hotels get away with small rooms and mediocre amenities you have to pay extra for when there are options like this out there. Top marks!
