This St. Louis Hotel With Arch View Rooms Is One of Missouri’s Best
I once had an opportunity to stay at the Drury Hotel by the Arch and I thought it was pretty cool being that close. If I twisted my neck just the right way looking out my window I could see part of the Arch. That said, there's one St. Louis Hotel with Arch view rooms where you don't need to contort your neck to see the Arch, and it's one of Missouri's best hotels according to U.S. News & World Report.
I'm talking about the Four Seasons Hotel In St. Louis. The Four Seasons bills itself as
"an urban oasis along the Mississippi," according to their website. The hotel's website touts its riverside location in the heart of downtown's entertainment district, and of course, being just steps from The Gateway Arch.
I find myself almost at a little bit of a loss as to where to start to describe this hotel.
Do I start with the hotel's recent renovation of all 200 guest rooms and suites? The renovation was led by a St. Louis Design Agency and tried to create the ultimate in-room relaxation environment while bringing the spirit of the city into each room.
Or the whimsical pop-up Vegas-style chapel the hotel created in the image of the original Little White Chappel in Las Vegas for Valentine's Day? The hotel hired Terry Phillips of "Close to Elvis" to wed couples, renew vows, or hold commitment ceremonies. Yes, Phillips, wed some couples and also crooned some Elvis classics like "Can't Help Falling In Love."
Did I mention the hotel is pet friendly? That's right. You don't even need to bring your dog bowls or treats. The hotel has them. Heck, if you need a break from walking Fido, the hotel will do it if you give them some advance notice. By the way, the hotel is pet friendly, but you will incur a pet cleaning fee, and the dog walking services come with a cost too.
There's also a full-service spa that offers massages, body treatments, facial treatments, nail services, and more. The spa is also home to an infrared sauna, steam room, co-ed relaxation lounges, and tranquility pool. Guests can also access the hotel's pool on the 8th-floor sky terrace.
There are no shortages of accommodations at the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis either. There are too many to mention. The hotel does have a Presidential Suite, and suites and rooms that face the river, the city, and yes, The Gateway Arch.
The hotel's ranking in U.S. News & World Report as the best hotel in St. Louis, and the second-best hotel in Missouri aren't the only accolades the hotel has received. It received a AAA Four Diamond Award in 2022.
Fodor's says about the hotel, "The hotel's guests enjoy the marble-dominated, yet modern decor. The hotel is close to sports venues, several casinos (one is attached), and nightlife. The hotel restaurant serves fine Italian fare and overlooks the Arch, but nearby restaurants may better please at a similar price."
That's right, did I mention the hotel is attached to the Horseshoe Casino St. Louis?
So how much will the Four Seasons cost you if you want to book a night? A Premier Arch-View Room will cost you $540 dollars per night on average, while a regular Arch-View Room will run you $455 dollars per night on average. Suites get into four figures a night. The $455 dollars a night right does offer a package that comes with complimentary parking.
By the way, you don't have to have an Arch view room to get a good gander at the Arch. You can see it from their spa, as well as Cinder House Bar and Sky Terrace. In fact, you could stay somewhere else and visit the bar and sky terrace. You might even be able to stay next door at the HotelLumiere At The Arch, which is part of the attached Horseshoe Casino.
I get it, it's not as swanky as The Four Seasons, then neither is the price. A room there will run $100-$200 a night plus resort fees. The Horseshoe Casino is only a skywalk away, as is The Four Seasons. You might even call the HotelLumiere to book a room and ask if they have any with a view of the arch. You might have to crane your neck, though.
