STL250 Contest Winners Receive St. Louis Boutique Hotel Package

STL250 logoOur beloved Arch City turns 250 this year!

As St. Louis also shares its birthday with Valentine’s Day, we wanted to honor the rich history of our beloved home as well as true love’s holiday. Your favorite St. Louis boutique hotel will be hosting a contest celebrating not just the love of our city but also the cosmic love stories that began here!

Throughout the months of December and January, lovebirds throughout St. Louis can submit their personal love story to the Moonrise Hotel in hopes of winning a romantic night under the stars!

From the first 250 submissions, the winning story will be chosen at random and announced at the Moonrise’s annual Snow Ball in January where it will be read aloud for the crowd.

The lucky pair will spend an evening of their choice enjoying the Peace, Love and Breakfast in Bed package thanks to the Moonrise. This romantic room special features a Superior Room equipped with a king bed, strawberries to nibble on, a bottle of champagne, a rose petal turndown and breakfast in bed. This package is traditionally offered for $299 per night.

A starry-eyed getaway in the most unique hotel in town is the perfect way to celebrate your significant other and STL250!

To submit your love story, send an email to We’ll be reading submitted stories until the day before the ball, and we’ll have our popcorn and Kleenexes ready while we do so!
