Steph usually makes the hotel arrangments, but it would be nice to know first, how many are interested.

  I missed last year but would love to go this time.

For me it would have to be the 5th or the 12th. After that I will be out of country until the 1st week of February.

Yea Bill, realize the 3 day weekend may be better for people driving in from other parts. For us, we just can't do it over MLK this year, we have a wedding that we need to be here for.

This past January the facilities were having issues.  The heat in the area we hang at was broken, so we froze our ass off.  TVs were out for the most part.  We were the only ones in the place. 

I would suggest we change the venue.  Harrahs is another 5 miles down the road, but for whatever reason is expensive for that weekend.  Even with the TotalRewards card it is coming up at $160ish per night.

With that said, the Lumiere is $168 for two nights.  And that is for large two room suites that can easily sleep 4 people.  ($69 Friday, $99 Saturday under this special... Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register )

The Lumiere is a Hotel/Casino two blocks north of the Arch. It is at Laclede's Landing on the riverfront...

The cab ride from Lambert is about 20 minutes.

100x nicer than the prior hotel we used, and 100x more things to do.

Note... there are two hotels at the Lumiere... Hotel Lumiere and Four Seasons.  We are talking Hotel Lumiere.

Now that I've gotten cleared for time off......I'd be in for that deal. That's not but about 40 bucks over what the other place would cost for those 2 nights.

One thing to keep in mind is their rooms book fast.  Decisions need to be made and the people who are in need to book asap.

We're talking and talking and talking about this.  I miss you all so much and I really want to do this BUT . . . . . and it's a BIG BUT in my life. 

I don't gamble.   So how "in your face" is the gambling at this hotel?  Am I going to be "assaulted" (for lack of a better word) in the lobby, bar, anywhere I chose to hang out?

It's not a matter of trying to choose what other people do.  I don't care if you gamble or not.  But I DON'T.  So those of you in the know about this hotel, how bad is it?

And as always, we reserve the right up to the day we leave (if we go) to back out for weather reasons.  Driving the length of Illinois in a January Blizzard is not how I want to end my life.

Also - will someone please spend time (like HOURS) at the basilica with me?

The hotel is connected to the casino only via a bridge.  They are two separate buildings.

The casino has a concourse with bars and eateries with the gaming floor a distinct gated area in the middle.  Unlike Vegas, Missouri casinos do not allow minors near the games, thus the casino floor area is gated.  You can spend the entire time there and hit every bar or eatery in the place without getting near a game (with the exception of one bar within the floor).

The Landing is accessible directly from the hotel entrances or through the casino concourse.

On this map... The hotel is the square building at A, the casino is the sprawling structure to the west toward the Edward Jones Dome, and the Landing is the cluster of buildings just south of the casino/hotel.

As I mentioned, the rooms are suites... a bedroom with one or two beds and a sitting room with table, chairs and a fold out couch. 

As for informal gathering areas in the hotel, the center of the hotel is an expansive atrium with a bar.  Pics at this link...
