The Moonrise Hotel is located in “The Loop” just steps from The Pageant concert night club and the heart of The Loop’s vast shopping and entertainment district. The hotel’s central location, and its proximity to the Delmar Blvd Metrolink Station, makes it simple to get to nearby Washington University as well as The Central West End and Downtown St. Louis.




The Seven Gables Inn

Built in 1926 using the Tudor Revival style, the Seven Gables Inn was remarkably sophisticated for its time. Originally it contained 27 apartments, 4 offices and 4 storefronts.

Today, its allure and uniqueness have been lovingly preserved and updated. Each of the 32 uniquely decorated rooms and suites blend Old World charm with modern luxury.

The Chesire

(Michael Arestad’s favorite hotel) Generations of St. Louisans and thousands of visitors to our city came to love the old world feel and quirky charm of The Cheshire Inn and Lodge. What started as a modest hamburger joint 80 years ago, evolved through the decades into a landmark restaurant and hotel known as the Cheshire Inn and Lodge. In 2011, this local treasure underwent a multi-million dollar renovation preserving its charm and character while transforming The Cheshire into a modern, luxury boutique hotel.
