A view of the St. Louis Gateway Arch

On a whim, we’re off to St. Louis. Where to stay? Downtown? Yes! The St. Louis Hotel, by Marriott Autograph collection. 35k points for a king room, check, done. Auto-upgrade? Yes, please.  1-Bedroom Junior Suite, with King Bed and walk out Balcony; if we must.

The Last Trip of 2017; St Louis, Mo

As the year draws to a close, I realized we had no travel plans for New Years. The year can’t end this way! 2017 has been an amazing travel year that came in like a lion.  A quick check of Hotels and a trip to St Louis was added for the 30th-31st.  I’m doing the Marriott Platinum Challenge and St. Louis will make #8 of the needed 9 stays.  The St. Louis Marriott Grand and a nice dinner at Mizu Sushi Bar made for a great end to a wonderful year. It’s hard to believe that this time last year, we were in New York on Times Square.  I wish everyone the best and blessed 2018 possible and as always, Happy Travels!
