“Great Place to Stay!” 5 of 5 stars

Wanted a unique place to stay and we found it. The front desk employees were very friendly greeting us each time we came or left and answered our many questions. The place is right in the middle of the Delmar Loop with many things to do in the area. The roof top bar is an awesome place to relax and unwind, although Friday and Saturday were busy it was great to see and feel the vibe of the area. We will definitely be back.

“Trip to Washington University for football game” 5 of 5 stars

“This was a very nice hotel conveniently located to Washington University Where we attended a football game. Hotel had a moon theme (I thought it was a little quirky) but we found it very comfortable, clean and had a great staff. They gave us a free cocktail when we checked in and had free parking behind the hotel. The room was large, had ample seating and had a rain shower head in the shower. There was a neat rooftop bar with views of the city on 8th floor.It was walking distance to many restaurants. I would definitely recommend.”

“Excellent” 5 of 5 stars

“This hotel is located on “the loop”, a sort of trendy area near Forest Park and Washington University. It was great for us as we were visiting nearby family. The hotel is modern, clean, with comfortable rooms and friendly staff. The rooftop bar is very nice on hot summer nights, packed on the weekend. Most restaurants in the hotel and on the loop are what I would call moderate to inexpensive casual dining. We would definitely stay there again.”

“Excellent” 5 of 5 stars

5 stars from Veronica, married on 08/18/2018

“The Moonrise Hotel is the PERFECT place to have your wedding. When you’re on the rooftop you get a beautiful view of the arch and the city of St. Louis plus the loop is a really family fun location with a great nightlife. I have to give a lot of credit to the entire staff that helped make my day magical. I can not rave enough about how amazing everyone was. From the people working the front desk to the bartenders, and catering staff everyone was extremely professional, polite and kept making sure everyone was just having a good time. Amy and Krista made my life sooo easy with planning, and always gave great advice on menu choices and the style I wanted my wedding to be. Thank you Moonrise Hotel for giving my loved ones and I a wonderful night that we will cherish forever.”

Five stars from Jeff, married on 10/06/2018

“We used The Moonrise for our out of town guests and could not have been more pleased with every part of the process. They were easy to work with and very flexible when setting up the block of rooms. When the weekend arrived every guest was met with a high level of service from all of the staff. The rooms were extremely clean with every phase of hospitality done to perfection. The area around the hotel offered our guests many nice options. We would definitely use The Moonrise again.”

Five stars from Eden, married on 09/01/2018

“The Moonrise made our special day even more special! Krista and her team are incredible. Our guests raved about the space- the venue, the service, the food, everything was incredible!! We trusted them the entire time to make sure our wedding was everything they dreamed of and they blew us away with the final result. We held both our ceremony and reception there and it was incredible! We cannot recommend the Moonrise for your wedding enough.”
