After a needed refresh was completed a while back, it's been a better experience. It has a larger bar and restaurant area (compared to similar hotels), and a pretty nice courtyard and outdoor pool. The rooms are pretty standard for this class of hotel. There is also a good sized workout area and another pool at that level. Quick access to the airport and rental car agencies.
East tower is in serious need of a remodel (and thorough cleaning)! After the first night they moved me to a different room after I went to check out to move hotels due to my room being really dirty. Desk attendant was incredibly nice and handled the situation well. Room in West tower was better.
I'm sorry to slam a hotel like this but here I go: the rooms were absolutely Nasty! And I'm not a clean freak. My mattress had a throw up stain on at and my sheets had blood stains all over them! dust was everywere under the bed there was soda bottles and trash every were. I talked to other people and they said there rooms were nasty as well. The restaurant is EXTREMELY expensive and doesn't even have very good food. And The staff was snobby. The pools were great and the lobby is very cool they even have a live band play there every once in a while. They have a Starbucks inside as well as a little computer lab. But the rooms were still HORRIBLE!
It was a nice stay, the staff are very professional and the breakfast was great. Liked the mid century mod vibe of the hotel. The room was clean however the floor in the entrance of the room was wet but they had fans in the hall trying to dry it. At night we came back and there was someone (not staff) smoking crack in the back lot. But other than that I'd come back.
Excellent inside, a little dated outside. I enjoyed my brief visit to the St. Louis Airport Marriott. The restaurant is good and the interior well appointed. I was meeting a friend and we enjoyed the fried ravioli a I enjoyed the hamburger entree. The wait staff was excellent The outside of the Marriott could use some updating - it definitely looks like it popped in from the 60s - but it is well kept and the inside well updated.
