Clean lines and simple, sophisticated decor combine at this 19-story glass edifice, featuring 200 guestrooms, an Italian restaurant and an unbeatable location on the banks of the Mississippi River. Family-friendly amenities abound, including oversized rooms, with living areas and pull-out sofas and a cabana-lined outdoor pool offering a fully equipped bar (for the adults) and uninterrupted views of the Arch. The concierge can arrange everything from treatments at the 12,000-square-foot spa to dinner reservations at the fine-dining Cielo Restaurant, leaving you more time to linger with a glass of red at the rooftop lounge.
In the Area
St. Louis locals will find any excuse to drink beer, and why not when you can sample more than 20 local craft brews. Order a pint of the single hop English pale ale while at Urban Chestnut, go to Schlafly Bottleworks for their pilsner, and throw back an ice-cold Bud after touring (for free!) the heavenly hops-scented Anheuser-Busch factory. Sober up with a walk through the 1,371-acre Forest Park, or rent a cruiser through Discovery Bikes for a leisurely ride along the charming riverfront, lined with art galleries, clothing boutiques and the iconic Gateway Arch. Continue your westward expansion to Pappy’s Smokehouse, where the Memphis-style ribs rival St. Louis barbecue, or join the locavore crowd for a farm-fresh, four-course meal at the Local Harvest Cafe.
How to Get There
Best overall experience I have ever had in a hotel. Rooms were beautiful. Loved the extra large tubs and rain shower head. Staff was very accommodating. Rooftop bar was a great place to end the day. Simply amazing start to finish.
The Four Seasons is a nice property on the edge of downtown St. Louis, just steps from Americas Dome and a short walk to the Gateway Arch and the business district. The hotel offers valet parking or free self-parking, which is a great bargain for downtown St. Louis.
On this stay, I had a Grand Premier king room on the north side of the building. The area around the hotel on that side is filled with abandoned buildings and parking lots, so don't expect a great view (I wasn't here for the hotel view on this trip - on a leisure trip, I would splurge for an Arch view).
The rooms are larges and spacious. As expected from a Four Seasons, they were clean well appointed. The 5 piece luxury bathrooms are spacious with separate tub and shower. I always appreciate the L'Occitane bath products at a Four Seasons. Room service was prompt and friendly, plus available 24 hours a day.
As far as facilities go, it was too cold to use the pool, but the water was warmed for the adventurous willing to run back inside. The view from the pool and surrounding deck give a great view of St. Louis. The fitness facilities are extensive with a great selection of equipment and open any time. The Spa offers an extensive menu of services, but my time was limited around meetings. However, the single-gender hot tubs and steam rooms in the spa locker rooms are open for all hotel guests during spa hours, which allowed for relaxation.
Service at the hotel was indifferent both at check-in and check-out, efficient, but not terribly welcoming. The hotel was unable to accommodate any type of late checkout, telling me that I could "extend to 12 noon as a courtesy" (which is the regular checkout time, so that was awkward).
Overall, the Four Seasons is by far the best hotel in downtown St. Louis & perhaps the best hotel facility in the metro area. The Ritz beats it on service, but is out in Clayton, so not convenient to downtown. I will certainly return to the Four Seasons again.
Everything was over the top! The wedding reception was lovely and so much fun. The food was the best wedding food ever and extremely healthy with vegan and vegetarian options. The staff was gracious and always there and willing to bend over backwards to make us happy.
I recently spent three nights at the Four Seasons in St Louis . It was a wonderful experience. I was there with my daughter and granddaughter for an award ceremony at the Historical Museum of Missouri. The hotel is beautiful and the room was very comfortable. We had a one bedroom suite which worked perfectly for our needs . The bathrooms are huge . The shower was delightful. There were plenty of towels . The air conditioner was excellent. The beds were very comfortable with lots of pillows. We very much enjoyed the outdoor pool and hot tub , as well as the spa with indoor hot tubs and relaxation rooms overlooking the Mississippi River . This is free to use for guests of the hotel . Kiefer at the concierge desk gets a special mention for going and picking up kosher food for me when the car service I ordered did not show up in time . He was always there with a smile and a helping hand . The Arch View Rooms have a spectacular floor to ceiling view that I loved . I only wish I could take that hotel with me wherever I go .
While I only stayed one night, they set the standard! The bed was super comfy, the bathtub was HUGE (I'm 5 foot 10) and the housekeeping was amazing (and helpful). One thing that stands out was the smoke alarm, you didn't see it flashing from the bed!!
