Marriott St. Louis Airport
Travel Blogs from Berkeley
Hello! Today we left the hotel in Independence Missouri, and we loved our little hotel room...so clean and convenient to KC downtown area(5 miles) and nice and quiet area at night. The free breakfast at the hotel was a great feature and we used their computer to print out our stubhub tickets for the game this evening and ballpark tour tomorrow in St. Louis.

We had a short drive today. We drove to St. Charles, IL which is just outside of St. Louis. We are going to have dinner with cousins Pam and John Valenti. According to John, we are first cousins, once removed. Actually, Pam's grandmother and my grandmother were sisters. We have never met, but have been ...

We started our day with Monkey Joe's. This second bounce paradise of the trip was packed full of slides, obstacle courses, and bounce houses (as well as people). Bryn, Sage, and Paul loved, loved, loved it. Joe and I loved the fact that Ruby Tuesdays was nearby for a quick lunch get away. Bryn was much more adventurous from ...
... br> Since I was up early and had time to kill while the rest of the crew got up and dressed, I took out early and headed to a park called Forest Park. This park was billed the largest urban park west of the Mississippi. Huge it was. I drove in just to drive through it and it took awhile. I eventually found the visitor's center and went in to check it out and learn more about the park. I came out with a bag full of reading materials on the park and of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott St. Louis Airport Berkeley
Having stayed at this hotel several times over the last months, it is probably my favorite place to stay in St. Louis. Great food, pretty good bar (for an airport hotel) and WONDERFUL service. The hotel staff even sent someone to knock on my door (at my request) when I did not wake up for an early flight with the wake up call. Highly recommend.
Unexpectedly great hotel
I am an event planner for my company and we just held a two day training at this hotel.
It has a three diamond rating, but it's a four diamond in my book. Service was impeccable and all of the employees were clearly happy and enjoyed working with each other.
Anyone who has a problem with this hotel should just bite the bullet, stay at 5 diamond properties and spare the rest of us their complaints.
This is the closest hotel to the St. Louis Airport and the hotel is very nice and offers a variety of services and amenities. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated with distinctive linens and quality furnishings. The room service breakfast was delicious and the staff friendly and accommodating. My only complaint came when I realized the price of the rooms. Since we had received a gift certificate for our stay, I did not realize that rooms in this hotel go for $169 a night (as per Orbitz). Although there is nothing wrong with this hotel, I would definitely re-think staying here if I had to pay over $100 a night. For this price, I would prefer to stay somewhere that has more character -- you could be in Anywhere, USA. And for this price, you could stay at one of a number of hotels in St. Louis which are one-of-a-kind experiences in architecturally unqiue buildings (like the Hyatt Hotel in Union Station, for example). So unless transportation issues are a concern or if you need to stay close to the airport to catch a flight, I would consider staying somewhere else if this was the price I was going to pay.
My boyfiend, and I stayed here on Father's day weekend. We checked in left our bags and took my father to a Cardinal's game. We got back it was after midnight. I hadn't noticed, and no literature had mentioned, on each bed they had all feather pillows and 2 feather comforters. I get allergy shots for dust mites, which love feather bedding. But due to the hour I decided to use a little decortive pillow that was not feather and to not use the rest of the feather bedding. Deciding I couldn't sleep around 3, I complained. Was told that I would get foam pillows. With repeated phone calls back and forth, at 5:30 I was told that they were all out of foam pillows. They tried to fix this by knocking on the door at 7 to give us 2 compimentary breakfasts. I would not recommend this Marriot to anyone. Mine and my boyfiends complaints were answered with rudness, and the reply "All marriots have feather bedding". This may be true but we didn't know that upon check in.
Called Reservations asked for credit card before quoting $
This was a call today, May 31 at 12:20 p.m. CDT directly to the hotel at 314-423-9700
I called the hotel to inquire about a stay and fly rate. The reservationist was polite and gave me the rate for park and fly with 8 days parking. I was parking for 10 days. She stated that before proceeding any further I had to give her a credit card number. I refuse to give a credit card number to a reservationist prior to obtaining a quote. I then told the reservationist that I would stay at another hotel.
we booked at this hotel only because it kept popping up on every travel/cheap hotel search engine. I assumed it would be a 2nd class marriott. we were plesantly suprised, a bell boy greeted us, ask if he could help with our luggage. lobby was very clean, check in was wonderful, the staff is top notch, everyone greeted us. we got the room we ask for. small rooms but, nice furnishings, desk with chair, swival recliner, king bed with very expensive toppings. bathroom was spotless. local calls are $1 each or you can use the high speed internet at $10 each day with unlimited long distance calls. our package gave us a free breakfast bufett at the on site resturaunt, it was spectacular, normall sells for about $12 each. parking is close but cost $5 each day. the pool is great half indoor half out, very large hottub indoors, seats about 10. 2nd outdoor pool is very large. all in all a great place to stay. If i had to pay over $100 per night I may rethink staying here, but with being accross the street from the airport the hotel is filled with buisness travelers through the week at over $100 a pop so on the weekend the rates get really cheap. we paid $69 per night including the breakfast bufett.
Not bad for an airport hotel
Very comfortable hotel. Newly renovated rooms comparable to a Westin. Directly across from airport main terminal. One of the nicest, if not the nicest airport hotel in St. Louis.
OK but not great
OK place to stay before flying out of St Louis. The room was small, adequate but could not control the heating and about cooked that night.
On return, had trouble getting out of the parking lot as we weren't given the proper material on check in. Coffee shop wasn't open for early am flights.
Do not use Park & Fly
We stayed 1/22/04 thru 2/01/04. Used the Park & Fly. Returned at midnight to find our car stolen and another in our group had theirs broken into. We needed to stay an extra night to take care of police business and they didn't even offer a discount or free night. Since it was stolen from their property we felt they could have at least been more accomodating in that respect. We like the hotel but inquired from the police a more secure location and they advised us. While we were working with the police officer they were called to another disturbence in the hotel. Will not stay at the Merriott/St. Louis airport again because of poor security.
