The Westin hotel in St. Louis is located in the middle of the downtown district. Many travelers point out that they are stunned that the hotel is so close to the baseball stadium. In the four star range, the hotel offers a great choice for those in town to see a baseball game, as well as for business travelers with meetings downtown.
The Westin caters more to adults and business travelers than to children. In the evening there is a cocktail reception and happy hour thrown by the management, and underage guests are not welcome at that event. The furnishings are upscale and the clientele is primarily professional, with baseball fanatics in season of course. Conferences often take advantage of the meeting rooms and conference facilities, and the easy access to the airport exits make it convenient for commuters.
There is a spa at the hotel. The Solera Spa offers massage treatments and other relaxation and beauty services. Book at the front desk or by transferring through to the salon directly. Room and spa packages are available throughout the year.
Seasonally, there are baseball weekend packages. If you do not take advantage of a room + tickets deal, tickets can sometimes be arranged through the concierge. Those wishing to explore more of the city can get a cab or town car from the concierge, or rent a car from the Avis location on site.
Interestingly for a downtown location, dogs are welcome up to 40 pounds. A waiver must be signed at the front desk when checking in with a pet. It is also a good idea to call ahead to ensure that there are rooms that are suitable for a pet on your targeted travel dates.
