Cute, cute, cute. Loved that it’s dog friendly, and the bed was amazing. The little touches made everything feel custom lizard for comfort.

The Moonrise is our ultimate date night hotel. The hotel is themed in an astronomy/art deco decor and has a contemporary chic feel. My husband and I love staying here because it's in a great location with all of our favorite restaurants within walking distance. We park in the free hotel parking lot and can walk wherever we'd like on Delmar. This is also a great hotel if you're seeing a show at The Pageant venue that's literally right next door. We love that we can order room service for breakfast by placing our order and time we'd like it brought on the outside door handle the night before. The only thing I will warn about is having your room directly under the roof top bar. If you actually like to sleep and don't party till 3 am then ask for a room on the lower floors away from the rooftop bar. We stayed on the 4th floor this last time and had a peaceful and quiet night's sleep. If you have pampered pets, this hotel is for you! We don't- but if we did this hotel would be very accommodating. Can't wait until our next stay!

Visiting Washington University in St. Louis

Pros: Free parking. Clean comfortable rooms
Location: Decent restaurants within walking distance. Great coffee shop, Blue Point, within walking distance.
The hotel location was great for where we needed to go. A little noisy from street traffic at night but otherwise was a great stay. The desk staff was very helpful. Clean, comfortable room.

This hotel is Fantastic

We loved our stay in St. Louis at The Moonrise Hotel. We ate at the hotel restaurant twice and went to both the rooftop bar and the lobby bar. We loved their food (very updated offerings) and drinks and the prices are reasonable for a classy place like this. Also it's in the middle of The Loop with tons of restaurants within a three block walk. It also has easy access to the rest of St. Louis via I-64 (about one mile away). The room and bed were very comfortable; the walk-in shower is wonderful; and the decor is one of a kind.

Nice hotel not too far from the zoo.

The room was very clean. The beds were super comfortable. The shower was amazing! The staff was very friendly at check in and check out. We did not take our pets, however, I noticed a cute food and water set up welcoming pets in the lobby. It eas exactly like the pictures advertised. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I would stay there again!

Great place to stay super close to The Pageant.

Came to see a show at the Pageant Theater and stayed at the Moonrise. I couldn't have been more pleased with my stay. The staff was courteous, friendly, and helpful. I will definitely stay here again!

Pros: The bed! Location
Cons: Would be great if it had a pool or a hot tub on that roof deck.
Location: Peacock Diner had a great breakfast.
Fantastic hotel. Most comfortable bed ever. Had a mixed up with the room key card and it was resolved quickly. Free parking was convenient. The rooftop deck was amazing. Great quiet place for coffee in the morning.

Nice facilities but disappointed by staff.

Pros: Great location, nice bed, very clean.
Cons: The staff could use additional training on handling circumstances that may arise in terms of guest treatment.
Location: Located in University city in St. Louis, walking distance to excellent restaurants and The Pageant.
Since personal details can't be posted on this website, I will say the facility is very nice. We were disappointed by the way staff handled a situation. When brought to the attention of management, a professional and courteous letter followed.
