Stellar Reviews: January 2019

The first month of 2019 was a particularly cold and snowy one, but guests of the best boutique hotel in St. Louis left us so many warm, glowing reviews for us that we hardly noticed the chill. While some guests appreciated the pampering their pets received during their stay at our pet-friendly hotel, others were blown away by our unique event spaces and the fabulous food from our own Eclipse Restaurant.

Don’t take it from us – check out what they had to say for yourself!


5 Stars from Len D.

“This is an excellent hotel in a great location – walking distance to shops, movies, and restaurants; close to Washington University and Forest Park, etc. The staff is exceptional – very accommodating, professional, and courteous. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with interesting, upbeat and cheerful decor. Everything is well maintained and immaculate. The rooftop bar is very cool and the hotel restaurant has excellent food at reasonable prices in a very pleasant atmosphere. Excellent high-speed internet, large flat screen TV, an in-room sound machine are other amenities.”

“Good food. Had the St.Louis Chef Salad, big enough for 2 people to share. Love this hotel for the unique room decorations. Front desk service is awesome always.”


Very hipster and cool!” – 5 out of 5 stars

It is definitely a different vibe in this hotel but it is super cool! It is right next door to The Pageant and for the price, totally worth it! Every employee we encountered was very friendly! Also, the location is right next to many different restaurants!

Best hotel on our road trip!” – 5 out of 5 stars

Just drove cross country with our dog and the Moonrise Hotel was by far the best place we stayed. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming to our dog (great amenity kit). The staff (including Adam) was also very helpful with food recommendations. We couldn’t have been happier and would recommend to anyone.

Amazing staff
Dog-friendly (with treats, bowl, bandana, etc.)
Location is close to great shopping and restaurants
Easy, free parking
Large rooms with nice bathroom amenities

Honestly… none”

Wonderful GBTA St. Louis Meeting” – 5 out of 5 stars

Moonrise Hotel was a very gracious host to a recent BOD meeting that I attended for GBTA St. Louis. The room was very nice, the food was great, but most importantly, the staff was very attentive to our every need. There is a fun, new rooftop bar/lounge area that may also be utilized for gathering/meeting space. I toured the hotel rooms, they are unique, bright and comfortable. A gem of a hotel in St. Louis.
