Early this year, there was an Amazing Deal Alert: Ritz Carlton St. Louis $45 Club Rooms, which was bookable through American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts. I was lucky enough to snag one of these rooms and American Express did honor the reservations.

Arriving the hotel, we took an Uber from the airport which was about 15 minutes away and cost $20. The hotel is located in the suburbs of St. Louis, so don’t plan on staying here if you’re looking to be in the heart of downtown. Given our short stay, we actually didn’t leave the property for our one night stay.

As this is booked through Fine Hotels and Resorts, the booking came with the following: 

  • Room upgrade upon arrival, when available.
  • Daily breakfast for two people
  • Guaranteed 4:00pm late check-out
  • Noon check-in, when available
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Guaranteed 4:00pm late check-out
  • Additional special amenity: $100 spa services credit to be used during your stay.

Upon check-in, I was welcomed and informed of all the amenities I’d be receiving through American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts. My Club King room was located on the 17th floor, which appears to be the Club Floor. The physical Club Lounge is located on the 18th floor and is accessible via a staircase from this floor.

The highlight was the Club Lounge located on the 18th floor which is key card accessible from the elevators or by taking the staircase as mentioned from the 17th floor.

Here’s a rundown of the hours:

  • Club Breakfast: 6:30am-10:30am
  • Lunch: 12pm-2pm
  • Hors d’oeuvres 5pm-7:30pm
  • Desserts 8pm-10pm

Additionally, through booking with Fine Hotels and Resorts, we received a $60 breakfast credit per day, which was used in the restaurant.

Bottom Line:

Overall, I had a nice stay at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis, especially having a Club Level room. For $45, this deal was too good to pass up, so I was lucky enough to be able to make it for the night. Due to our short stay, we didn’t even use the $100 spa credit that was the local hotel amenity.

The property features 299 guest rooms and suites and is a Marriott Category 6 hotel requiring 50,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per night to stay here.
