Has anyone had a good experience in a hotel in St Louis? I will be passing through in a few months on a honeymoon and wanted to get a few hotel suggestions. A good Holiday Inn and up is fine. A safe area and a nice hotel is the only things we are looking for.
I am thinking of moving to St Louis in a year or two and would like to spend some time there in 1 or 2 month intervals before then. I'm told that I will probably like the Central West End. Does anyone know of any furnished short term rentals in that area or nearer Forest Park? Only need a studio or 1 bedroom apartment. Would prefer a private entrance.
I will be attending events in suburban St.Louis the first weekend of October. Rather than stay in a suburban motel, I thought I might stay "downtown" (whatever that means) and walk around the city during the days. Is there anything special that I should not miss? Is there some area that's particularly interesting to walk around?
I plan to travel to St Louis MO from Minneapolis MN by car. Want to visit the Arch, City Gardens and probably cahokia mounds. As we travel via Iowa, wanted to know whether any good places that we can visit on the way there. Also is it worth travelling to cahokia mounds. Any other suggestions on visiting places in St Louis also will be helpful.
Hello,I am an out of state admissions counselor from a small art college. I will be visiting St. Louis this Fall and don't know the area at all. I am wondering which High Schools I should visit while I am there. They can be in St. Louis or a little outside of the city. I am looking for schools with a strong art programs and higher achieving students. Thank you!
I will be moving to St Louis in late May / Early June for a career move. I've been told it's a great area but being a single woman, there are areas I should watch out for. I've lived the past two years in Pioneer Square of Seattle, so I'm used to a large amount of homeless people and a drug deal or two but not much beyond that. I will be working in the central downtown area, right by the arch (my company is about 4 blocks from the arch). I will not have a car. Any advice? I'm being told by some family that some of the great apartments I've found for cheap are also in really shady areas... Thanks!
What is the best way to get from Union Station to the Drury Inn in Chesterfield (aside from renting a car and driving)?
We need assistance/advice on the safest places to live in St. Louis
I am coming to Saint Louis at the beginning of October and would like to go canoeing. How is Meramec park? Are there many tourist? How does it compare with Jack's fork or current? The latter seems that it would me more intimate scenery and maybe less crowded? We would like to overnight in a cabin along the river. thank you for any information you would have.
We are leaving for St. Louis tomorrow and want to know if a car is necessary to get around or will public transportation suffice?

Hi, Any hotels in St. Louis that are known for being romantic? Celebrating an anniversary and I want it to be special. We are also planning on going to City Museum. Any other suggestions for romantic or fun places to check out are greatly appreciated!
What is the historical setting for the "gateway" titled "Vandeventer Place" just down from "The Jewell Box"? When was it placed there and for what purpose???
I have never been to St. Louis before and can use some help. I'm going to be in St. Louis for a concert series at Powell Symphony Hall. (I won't have a car.) I'm booked at the Four Season's. I gather that it is one of the nicest hotels in town, and I'm thrilled to be able to stay there, I'm just a little concerned about the location. How convenient is it to the concert hall, shops, public transport...? The casino next door is not of interest at all. I wouldn't mind cabs at night but would like to have access to public transport during the day so that I can get to other areas and in from the airport. If there is another luxury property that I should be looking at? I'd appreciate any feedback.
I have been told that the Loop is a good area to stay in Saint Louis. Is this true & how easy would it be to get to the main tourist attractions & downtown please?
My husband will be staying in St Louis for a week in November, and I have the oppurtunity of coming along. He would be in a conference during the day, so I would be left to my own devices for a lot of the time. My question is, is St Louis an interesting place to have this much spare time in on one's own?
My friend told me about taking the tour of the brewery and said he saw a carving of a brewery worker on a cornerstone of the building. He says it was a man with a mug of beer in one hand and something to eat in the other. The thing that set it off was that the "worker" had the head of a rat, as he recalls. If anyone has a pic of this, I would appreciate seeing it and any info if a replica can be purchased. Thanks
Hi, I'm in still filling in the blanks of my connect-the-dots tour of the places in the USA which we have never visited before. St. Louis will be Days 25-27 on our way home to PA. For years I've heard about the Italian restaurants in The Hill section of StL and now I would appreciate specifics. We're looking for good, real Italian food that is not a pizzeria or chain, and is also not "exquisite" dining. Entrees between20-$30 would be fine. Also, please correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that restaurants in the Hill are closed Sunday. The tips I've been getting from our VT friends around the country have kept me all pumped up in the planning. We expect to leave PA the week after Labor Day for a 5,000 drive. It's a good thing that my wife and I "play nice". Thanks, Irv
Hello! I'll be in St Louis from August-September. I'll be staying in Maryland Heights and will be going to Earth City on a daily basis. How far is the travel time? And what's the best and most economical way to go back and forth? Aside from BBQ and Budweiser, what other food places should I check out? And lastly, is there a clean and decent lesbian bar in the area? This is the first time I'm goin there and would appreciate any help. Thanks!
What is the best way to get to the st. louis zoo, from warrenton,Mo to get thru the construction on hiway 40?
I'm already cringing from the30 "cheap" ticket to attend the Rockies v. Cardinals game, but then another15 to park?? Any suggestions for cheaper (or even FREE?) parking to attend the game? I'm a single female traveling alone, so it needs to be safe and close enough to the stadium so my being "directionally challenged" won't be an issue... I've never been to St. Louis before and do not know the area, so I won't be offended if y'all tell me to suck it up and pay the15. I'd just like to know my options here. As always, THANK YOU in advance for your help!
Hi, my husband and I are planning a quick anniversary trip to the St Louis area in September. Is there a decent hotel that anyone would recommend under100/night? We don't need fabulous service, but no where that I would fear my car being broken into. Looking for bar/restaurant; 24 hour desk service... pretty much 3 star but I know 2 star can be just as accommodating. We are willing to stay in suburbs as well...
Some advice, please, on accommodations in St. Louis. OUR ITINERARY: We fly in to the airport late one evening. The next day we need a rental car. When we return the St.Louis, we need to return the car and get to a hotel and end up the next morning at the train station to complete our trip. I'm traveling to St. Louis with a seven year old, and wonder if I should stay near the train station one night so that we can catch a train the next day. Is the area safe and pleasant? Any hotel recommendations? Or perhaps I need a hotel which would shuttle us between airport and train station area. Ideas? Thanks.
I have booked at drury plaza st louis arch and on their home site it says there is a daily fee. However, i have noticed in several different reviews guest talk about free parking. Is there a fee?
Hi VTers, I'm traveling to St. Louis for the Radiohead concert in 2 weeks (May 14th). I arrive on the Mega bus at Union Station at 2:30pm. Concert starts at 7pm, I'd like to be there around 6-6:30, so that's a 4-hour window to get from place to place (2 hours of which I'd like to use to eat somewhere near the terminal). I've looked at the St. Louis Regional Transit website to figure out transportation from St. Louis Union Station to the amphitheatre (14141 Riverport Dr), but I can't make heads or tails out of it. I used the police dept's address in Maryland Hts as a terminus point because I wasn't able to just plug in any address, which is extremely frustrating. There are no directions of how to get to the amphitheatre itself or how far that walk might be. I'm thinking it's a few miles walk and I don't want to do that, especially at night when I return; would love to get straight to the venue, if possible. These are the directions it gives me: http://www.metrostlouis.org/ Take metro from Union Station to Police Dept in Maryland Hts, 212 Millwell Dr. Take Metrolink West from Union Station Metrolink Station to Rock Road Metrolink Station. Depart 3:36 arrive 3:53pm. Walk to Rock Road Loop to catch the MO Bus 33 and ride that to Shuetz Rd. at Dorset Rd. arrive 4:07pm. Walk from Shuetz Rd to Maryland Hts Police Dept. Can someone tell me the best way to get from Union Station to the amphitheatre? Could I take metro/subway and then a bus once inside Maryland Hts - or a cab? If so, what's a good cab company in Maryland Hts or the website for the bus? Would either stop in front of the concert venue? Is it too far to just take a cab from St Louis to Maryland Heights? And back (at 11:30pm or so)? And if so, I'm worried about getting from the amphitheatre back into town to catch the Mega bus at 1:15am. I'm thinking I have about a 2-hour window. Which *should* be plenty of time but you never know. Also, is there any place safe to meander around or stay at late at night around Union Station or is Union Station itself open? Thanks for all your help!

I am planning a trip to St Louis for the first time. Is downtown generally a safe area? I've heard a lot of things about "bad" areas and want to make sure I avoid them.
I posted before about BBQ in St. Louis. A friend of mine said that I was thinking of Kansas City. Duh! And I'm even from the midwest. Anyway, does anyone have a suggestion for where to get really good local food in St. Louis--somewhere that isn't a chain restaurant? Thanks for any tips! Eve
We'll be passing through Saint Louis next week on our way to Memphis, probably mid to late afternoon, with two kids. We want real, authentic, down-home, local BBQ. Who has the best that's not too far off I-55? Thanks for any advice! Eve
