The Renaissance St. Louis Hotel Airport is one of the closest hotels to the gates. However, the U-shaped design of the hotel deflects most of the airport noise. This allows guests to get the convenience of being practically at the airport without having to sacrifice a decent nights sleep.
There are many other elements of the hotel where travelers do not need to sacrifice. Unlike many airport hotel locations, the Renaissance St. Louis Hotel Airport has multiple pools and a Jacuzzi so that travelers can enjoy a nice swim and soak after a long flight instead of being shut up in little hotel boxes. Many travelers commented on the expansive design of the hotel, which created a feeling of spacious openness throughout the property.
The spaciousness extends to the rooms. Bathrooms got high marks for roominess, and king beds seemed to outnumber queens in the reviews. Several travelers commented that the work space in the rooms was more than adequate. However, as seems to be the norm with the airport hotels, the Renaissance charges $10 a day for internet (noon to noon) which annoyed every class of traveler. Most felt this should be free, especially given the other amenities at the hotel.
On-site dining is available. There is both a sports bar and a regular restaurant menu. The sports bar seemed to be a popular hangout spot in the reviews of the hotels. Many cited reasonable prices, good ambiance, and more than edible fare when discussing their use of the sports bar.
The shuttle to the airport runs 24 hours a day. It usually swings by every 10 - 15 minutes. Most guests found this to be sufficient and noted that it was about a 10 minute ride from door to door. Car service is also available if necessary and can be arranged through the front desk.
