April was a whirlwind month, but our guests made time to write some out-of-this-world reviews for us on TripAdvisor® and our Facebook page!

“You must stay here!!”

Normally I don’t do reviews, but this hotel is so incredible I had to stop and do one. First of all the aesthetics are so beautiful so clean so classy, it’s a feast for the eyes. Secondly the rooms are gorgeous, again,clean and well appointed and very modern. The staff has to be the most professional warm caring staff I have ever experienced at any hotel I’ve ever been to. I only stayed two nights but I wish I could’ve stayed longer. The beds were so comfortable I haven’t had a night sleep like that in a long time, the restaurant downstairs called eclipse was so delicious, the view from the rooftop bar is impressive, they have great room service,and to top it all off they welcome small-pets and treat them lovely. My only complaint is having to pay $17 a night for valet parking but that’s a very small minor complaint, if you are ever in St. Louis I beg you to stay at this hotel, you will not regret it, and it’s right smack dab in the middle of the Delmar loop, which is a very cool eclectic part of town that you will want to walk and visit and check out. I travel a lot and I stay at a lot of different hotels and this one is a memorable boutique hotel.

“This quirky, small hotel is a gem in a up and coming part of town”

Joe Edwards has done it again. Where he has collections of rock n’ roll and R&B at Blueberry Hill, he has all his astronaut memorabilia at Moonrise. It’s an extensive collection and guests should take the time to look it over. Moonrise is a quirky, almost- family run small hotel. That means the service can be spotty. Jordan our initial commander was great, as was the bearded fellow who lent us an umbrella. But there was a hipster type on morning duty who shunned my request for room food service after my request for the room service menu to be delivered to my room had been forgotten or ignored. Nevertheless, the quality of the breakfast was very good, and all was forgotten. And don’t forget to hit the rooftop. It is a magnificent view of St. Louis, from an unusual perspective. Nice work, Joe!

“Awesome Hotel”

The Moonrise is an awesome hotel. We stayed there because it was .4 miles from The music venue we were going to to see our favorite band play at. The hotel was clean and the staff was nice and welcoming. We will stay here again and cannot wait to stay with our kids so they can see how awesome of a place it really is!

Five Stars from Kerry C.

We came for one night and stayed 2 because we had a boy get sick – the staff were so accommodating and the hotel has so much personality. The shower is gorgeous, the decor, I was impressed by all. Thank you Moonrise and staff!!

Five Stars from Trisha Wulf

I’ve always wanted to stay here. I’m so glad I finally got to. The hotel is clean, the staff is really nice. We prefer the rooftop when its closed because you basically have it to yourself, it gets pretty busy. I’m sure I’ll stay here again.

Five Stars from Heather D.

The staff was very kind and efficient. The room was clean and nice. We were pleasantly surprised when they comped our drinks and appetizer simply because they didn’t have what we ordered. We will definitely be going back!


Thank you to all our April 2017 guests. We loved having you and can’t wait for your next trip to The Moon. If you haven’t stayed with us yet, book your trip now.
