The Hyatt Regency St. Louis Riverfront hotel is located just back from the river park in downtown St. Louis. The hotel is currently in the middle of a major, multi-year renovation project. The renovations are part of a plan to completely update the building and make it over from its previous life as the Adam's Mark Hotel. The renovations are being done in stages, so travelers will want to be mindful of the construction when booking their stays here.
Judging from traveler's reviews on the major site, the hotel has quite a bit of work to do. During the hotel's final years as the Adam's Mark, several facilities were allowed to fall into disrepair, and the rooms were not updated. The current renovations are tackling these issues, but travelers may want to exercise caution and either preview a room or specifically request an updated room before committing to the hotel for the night.
Regardless of the construction, the Hyatt Regency St. Louis Riverfront does have a great location for those seeking to be close to all of the downtown attractions. Right across from the Arch, guests will have good views of the monument from the hotel. As it is only a five minute walk, catching the early cars for riding to the top will not require getting up at dawn. Busch stadium is also only a few minutes away in the other direction. The rest of the downtown dining and retail attractions are literally at the doorstep, so parking and walking the rest of your stay is an option.
The hotel offers business services and conference space for meetings or social functions. Airport shuttle transfers and car service can be arranged with the front desk. Promotions for river festival events and sports events are available and can be booked through the Hyatt website.
Due to the construction, there are some deep discounts available for the hotel. This is especially true during off-peak seasons. Budget travelers may want to keep this in mind, but also balance the discounts against the construction. Calling the hotel for status updates on the construction will be helpful to those for whom a working pool, fitness room or conference area are a must.
