We stayed in this hotel a few days ago and felt that it was a good value. The hotel room's size was typical- not too large but not too small either. It was clean and looked like it had recently been renovated. It is situated within Union Station so our room's view was the food court (would've liked it to have been a different view). There is a bagel shop adjacent to the hotel inside Union Station which was really nice in the morning. My only complaint was that when you enter and exit the hotel, you have to go through Union Station which is essentially a mall. It felt a little silly wheeling my suitcase through a mall! However, I can see the perks of having your hotel being inside of a mall during the winter when it's really cold outside. The hotel is a few blocks away from the Scottrade Center and probably about a dozen blocks away from Union Station.
