On my bike ride across the country, we had 2 nights in St. Louis. One of my friends from home was able to drive down for the weekend to come and visit me, which meant that I was able to sleep in a bed for two more nights!
We stayed at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac. It was a kind of strange hotel, not what I was expecting at all, but in a good way! For the price (which was fairly reasonable compared to what else was available for the weekend), it was a pretty upscale hotel in my opinion.
From the start, the hotel was pretty impressive looking.
And there was a gorgeous chandelier in the lobby.
The pool was pretty standard. We did not have a chance to check it our because of a thunderstorm.
The fitness area was pretty impressive as well. There was more equipment behind the wall in the picture to the left that is not pictured. There was also a sauna, which I think it a fantastic touch. It’s also something that I haven’t seen in a hotel gym before (sometimes by the pool), but it is definitely a feature I would enjoy especially if I was here on business.
The room was pretty standard. We had booked a club level room because there was no other availability. We had access to the Club Lounge (forgot to take pictures, sorry!) and checked it out briefly one evening for a glass of wine and bite to eat. The little bit of dessert we tried was very good.
Overall, I was impressed with this hotel. I was expecting a more standard big(ish) city Hilton, even though we were on the outskirts of St. Louis. I would definitely consider staying here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay outside of St. Louis.
Outside of St Louis meaning maybe 15 minutes from downtown and maybe 10 – 15 from the airport. And for anyone interested, an easy walk to Frontenac Plaza. A very nice shopping mall.
