There's something to be said for sitting in a jacuzzi after a long day of sight-seeing watching the reflection of the setting sun in the stainless steel of the Gateway Arch. That was exactly my experience the second evening of our stay at the Hampton Inn - Gateway Arch.

It's a 17-story structure rising on the north end of the park. Prior to checking in, you can't park unless you pay. Even those staying at the Hampton Inn - Gateway Arch are charged $10 per day to park (added to the bill).

As we walked into our room, I was blown away by the view. Right outside our window was the Gateway Arch (a tad to the left, but no leaning or craning involved). The room was very clean and had a coffee maker, microwave, and mini-fridge.

There is a pool and jacuzzi on the 5th floor in an airy room also with a terrific view of the Arch. The water seemed to be well taken care of, and there was a lifeguard on duty as well. A variety of pool toys such as noodles and balls was kept here in a bin. Next to the pool was a game room with air hockey and a few video games. I used the guest laundry across the hall at $1 per load or dryer cycle. Be sure to bring your own supplies as the dispenser here is way overpriced -$1 for dryer sheets.

We ate both mornings at the continental breakfast located in the lower level. This is in a very large room with plenty of seating. The selection was good - coffee, tea, cocoa, juices, cold cereals, pastries, donuts, bagels, muffins, toast, toaster waffles, toaster French toast, biscuits and gravy and hard boiled eggs were offered. There were two TVs in the room, and I got the one switched from Fox News to CNN for my morning update with no problem.

The hotel is very central to St. Louis. We walked down to Lanclede's Landing and found only one restaurant for families (a Planet Hollywood used to be here but closed). Most of the other places are primarily bars - great for singles or couples but not for families. There's also a Metrorail Stop her

PROS: LOCATION, rooms, breakfast, pool
CONS: extra $10 per day for parking
