Couple of quick Qs about St. Louis - hotel location, etc

nickblesch | Mar 27, 2012 01:16 PM

Hello all,

My wife and I are going to be in St. Louis over Easter weekend. I'm not terribly familiar with St. Louis (a couple trips to the science museum and the zoo, like, 20 years ago).

The primary purpose for our trip is a concert in a bar by SLU on Sat night, and since it's like a block from Pappy's Smokehouse, that seems like destiny. Delicious, smoked destiny.

Question 1: I'm between Moonrise Hotel (which looks funky and cool) and staying in the Central West End. We like walkable / shoppable areas - rather it's hippeish vintagey stuff or more urbane - and I'd like a hotel where we can head out Saturday morning / afternoon and go exploring. Is there a location between those two that is better? Or somewhere else entirely?

Question 2: I'm guessing Easter Breakfast/Brunch plans should have been made, like, a year ago, but I didn't even start planning the trip until like a week ago. Oops. :P Brasserie and Home Wine Kitchen, if open and if available, seem consistently highly rated but we're down with good greasy spoons as well. Any other suggestions?
