Sometimes you just need to get away. And just because travel options are limited right now doesn't mean your relaxation and entertainment is. Check out the Moonrise Hotel, found in The Delmar Loop. There are so many different kinds of boutique rooms to choose from, but I think you should go all out and try a Jacuzzi King room or one of the 10 themed Walk of Fame Suites.

About the Moonrise Hotel

The Moonrise Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri, blends cool modern design and quirky sophistication to create a truly unique boutique hotel experience. Located in The Loop – one of St. Louis’ most vibrant shopping, dining and entertainment districts – the hotel offers guests a wide array of leisure activities.

Opened in April 2009 by Joe Edwards as part of his vision for adding vibrancy to the Delmar Loop neighborhood, the eight-story Moonrise Hotel serves as a destination hotel for St. Louis locals, Washington University visitors and out-of-state travelers alike. Its prime location next to The Pageant and Delmar Hall. Plus, nearby Blueberry Hill Restaurant & Music Club attracts musicians and concertgoers from across the nation.

The Moonrise Hotel also is home to the award-winning Eclipse Restaurant, a St. Louis leader in modern American cuisine. Eclipse Restaurant’s talented chefs serve up a menu of fresh, contemporary American dishes made from locally-sourced, seasonal and organic ingredients, and skilled bartenders mix up classic cocktails with a modern twist.

The Moonrise Hotel boldly goes where no St. Louis hotel has gone before with its bold combination of contemporary design, luxury amenities, well-appointed rooms and suites and ample meeting space. From the ever-changing colors of the iridescent lobby walls and lighted staircase to the evocative art, display cases of lunar toys, jewelry, figurines, rare space memorabilia and spaceships, there’s much to marvel at without ever leaving the hotel.

The result: an unforgettable experience that combines Midwestern hospitality with urban chic and comfy sleek boutique.
