Best Hotel2011 Finalist See 2011’s Winner »
6177 Delmar Blvd., St Louis, MO 63112
For years, visitors to St. Louis toured our favorite little strip, enjoyed its restaurants, bars, shops and scenery, only to leave Delmar Boulevard and head back to their hotel away from the lights and fanfare of the Loop. But now, thanks to one man, no one need leave the universe he created ever again. Is there anything Joe Edwards can't do? The tireless local has developed everything from bowling alleys to music venues to resurrection efforts for the Loop trolley. And in April 2009, he added boutique hotel to his résumé. And this isn't just any old hotel. In true Edwards fashion, this place rises above your run-of-the-mill, cookie-cutter hotels. Sure, it's got guest rooms, but these guest rooms feature Serta Enrapture mattresses, plasma TVs, Wolfgang Puck coffee and elegant toiletries. The Moonrise even has Jacuzzi rooms and ten “Walk of Fame” suites, which highlight different stars from the St. Louis Walk of Fame, another Edwards project. The hotel not only offers plenty of dining and entertainment along the bustling Loop, but it also houses fine dining at Eclipse and an ultra-chic rooftop bar.
