The Marriott St. Louis Grand is a great place to stay in the heart of downtown St. Louis! A beautiful building both inside and out and with extremely helpful and friendly staff, this hotel provided everything I needed while staying there. They even included free early check-in and late check-out for my stay. It was easy walking distance to the Gateway Arch as well as museums and restaurants in the downtown quarter. The hotel also has beautiful reception halls for events which I have attended during a wedding. I highly recommend staying at The Marriott St. Louis Grand while you are in this city!
