The Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown St. Louis is in the process of taking over the building where the former Adam's Mark Hotel was located. As part of that process the hotel is undertaking a multi-year renovation project. Travelers who visit the hotel prior to the completion of the renovations should be prepared for uneven experiences as some areas and rooms will be updated before others, and there is likely to be a certain amount of construction inconvenience.
However, the Hyatt Regency, also known as the Regency Riverfront, does have quite a bit of work to do if one is to believe all of the traveler reviews. The Adam's Mark hotel transition evidently had left several rooms in poor repair; guests may want to review rooms before agreeing to stay for the night to ensure they are getting updated facilities. Also, during busy seasons, parking waits for the valet were common and alternatives were not available due to closed off areas.
The location of the hotel is quite convenient to the downtown attractions. The hotel is right across from the Arch on the riverfront, giving it great views and helping those who want to catch the first cars in the morning an advantage. Busch stadium is also within easy walking distance, and the riverfront landing attractions are literally at the door.
Conference space and business services are available to professionals and road warriors. Shuttle and car service to the airport can be arranged. Packages for seasonal events, games, and river festivals are readily available through the Hyatt website or by calling the hotel directly. Being in the process of upgrading, there are some deep discounts available for off-peak visitors. Group rates for conferences can also be negotiated by calling the front desk and asking to speak with the conference planner.
