Downtown St. Louis is home to numerous colleges, government buildings, the Mississippi riverfront, and, of course, the Gateway Arch. Outside of the riverfront and arch area, parts of downtown become like a ghost town, with streets empty and a sparse number of cars on the roads. But one of the most gorgeous and historical spots in the downtown area is the Magnolia Hotel St. Louis. I was fortunate to get to experience this historic landmark with a media discount on my recent visit to STL. Check out my Magnolia Hotel St. Louis review.
