Stellar Reviews: July 2019

Though the summer is (sadly) winding down, that didn’t stop all of these folks from swinging by the Moonrise Hotel! Whether it was for a luxurious weekend getaway, happy hour at the rooftop bar, or a wedding reception, we love hearing what people had to say about their visit our boutique hotel.

And while it may already be August, there’s no bad time to come by the Moonrise. Are you in search of a pet-friendly hotel in St. Louis for you and your furbaby? Do you want your hotel to have eco-friendly priorities? Do you simply wish to enjoy a delicious meal that you don’t have to cook yourself? The Moonrise can tick all of those boxes. Once you do make those plans, don’t forget to leave us a review just like these awesome guests did.

Gary K. recommends Moonrise Hotel

“The Moonrise is exceptional and a one-of-a-kind thanks to the passion and attention of owner Joe Edwards. His fascinating eclectic collection of Space Race art and artifacts is one of the best on public display anywhere in the world. The 3000 pound, 20 foot diameter, solar powered revolving replica of the Moon that rotates over the Roof Garden Lounge is probably his largest lunar artifact – and a dust sized fragment of the Moon may be the tiniest. Both are amazing! It’s open for free public viewing and definitely worth a visit if you’re in St.Louis.”

5 out of 5 stars “Excellent”

“Really great place, friendly staff, very cool design rooms and common areas. We stopped by the bar in the evening, more great moon collectibles everywhere, a vintage radio turned into a robot and Will the bartender was excellent! Thank you!”


“Great hotel” – 5 out of 5 stars from Cathryn H.

“This quirky, fun hotel is in a great area with lots of restaurants. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was super clean as was the bathroom. The rooftop bar has a gorgeous view, tons of seating for large and small groups. I will be staying there again.”

“One-of-a-Kind Hotel” – 5 out of 5 stars from Rick T.

“There can be no doubt that the owner of this boutique hotel is fixated on the moon. From photos of astronauts to art work from “Spooning the Moon” and “Trip to the Moon” by Georges Méliès as well as display after display of 60’s era space memorabilia, the decor is overwhelming and fascinating. This theme carries through the sleeping rooms and makes for a memorable stay. The hotel is well-appointed and well-tended. For a very unique experience (but comfortable, nonetheless), give the one-of-a-kind hotel a try.”


5/5 from John B.

“Great experience. Friendly staff. Comfortable rooms.”

5/5 from Andrew W.
