So as you look ahead to your fall bucket list, why not put The Moonrise in your plans? While you’re at it, plan to bring your pup along to our pet-friendly hotel in St. Louis. Or put your meal planning on the back burner and stop by for a tasty meal and cocktail (or three) at Eclipse Restaurant. Wedding bells in your future? Check out our unique event spaces.

“Great location, great hotel.” – 5 out of 5 stars from Connie

“The hotels location is within walking distance of restaurants and stores. The staff was great and the rooftop bar was very nice with a great view. I especially liked that I was given the option of utilizing the valet service for 20 dollars a day, or parking my own car in their lot myself for free. Clean, convenient, and great staff. I’ll definitely stay there again.”

“Clean, Accommodating and Convenient” – 5 out of 5 stars

“We stayed at Moonrise Hotel this past weekend for the first time. Check-in was easy and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean. We ate breakfast in the restaurant every day and enjoyed the food which came out hot and correct. Our waiter, Robert was especially accommodating when we told him we were in a rush, he quickly brought out our food. The desk staff also went over and beyond, especially Nataly. We enjoyed our stay and will be back!”

“Moonrise Hotel Rooftop Bar so much fun” – 5 out of 5 stars

“This eclectic little hotel in the St. Louis loop district has a very nice, charming rooftop bar the is a must on a nice evening in St. Louis. We had wine and split a burger (delicious!) and great fries. Nice lounge type seating and a nice view of the loop area.”


5/5 from Ashley P.

“The themed rooms are super unique. Major bonus is they accommodate your entire family’s needs, including fur babies.”

5/5 from Melody K.

“We loved staying here! After a night with no AC in our Airbnb, we were looking for a dog-friendly hotel to stay at instead. So happy we came to Moonrise. They got us a room instantly and gave so much love to our pup. Great location. Easy parking. Cool retro decor. Reasonable prices. Super friendly staff. Stay here!”


5/5 from Courtney F.

“The rooftop bar seems like it’s only for guests, but I promise you, you just hop on the elevator and go right to the top. It’s for anyone in St. Louis (local or not). The rooftop has a great view onlooking the city, you can see the arch and everything. Drinks are from real mixologists and are extremely delicious. Ambiance is very welcoming and warm, you get to sit out on a patio on the top of the hotel, which is awesome. Prices are a little more than most places in the area, but you’re definitely paying for location. They have a ton of comfy couches, if you get here early in the evening you can snag one and relax all night. It’s a great spot to end your night on the loop. I highly recommend for anyone in the area!”
