Review: Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark

When I'm back in St. Loiuis visiting friends and family I usually book a room at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark.  This high rise in downtown St. Louis has been several hotels, including a former Marriott, but in its most recent incarnation it now fall into the Hilton family.  The hotel has undergone a major facelift in the past few years and is now a sleek, modern hotel with a good list of amenities.

Review: St. Louis Lambert Airport A Concourse

Lambert International is my hometown airport and I've seen the facility undergo some major changes over the years.  Up until about ten years ago Lambert was one of the busiest airports in the US with more than 30 million passengers moving through its terminals in a single year.  The airport used to be home to TWA and then a large hub for American after the buyout of TWA in 2001.  Since then, the airport has fallen victim to airline consolidation, a difficult economy and a changing US airline market.
