The downtown Embassy Suites is a great hotel in St. Louis and provided a perfect venue for our recent mother/daughter sleepover which coincided with the Taylor Swift 1989 World Tour concert last week.
The hotel is located one block from the America’s Center Convention Complex and the Edward Jones Dome at 610 North 7th Street. Valet parking is available out front.
The hotel lobby is beautiful and the staff was extremely attentive and helpful. In fact, I lost my valet ticket when it was time to leave for the concert, but the valet promptly located my car and got us on our way.
The best feature of the hotel, in my opinion, was the size of the rooms. I commented on that to the hotel manager, Wade Thompson, and he told me he thinks they have some of the largest rooms among the Embassy Suites properties. And he said we were in one of the smaller suites in his grand hotel. I’m confident the room was bigger than my first and my second apartments.
My daughter and I enjoyed the afternoon in our room, but took a little time to go exploring around the hotel. Here’s what we found:
There was a daily “happy hour” with free drinks and snack, as well as an amazing breakfast spread the next day complete with made-to-order omelets. The hotel pool and exercise room would make any guest happy, although we didn’t have time to enjoy either one. Maybe next time.
So, if you’re looking for a great hotel in St. Louis, especially if you’re traveling with kids and want a large suite with plenty of space, consider the Embassy Suites by Hilton St. Louis Downtown.
