As the days grow longer and the temperatures rise, the allure of summer fun becomes irresistible. This year, Le Meridien St. Louis Clayton is set to transform your summer experience with their much-anticipated Au Soleil season. Nestled in the heart of downtown Clayton at 7730 Bonhomme Ave, this 268-room property is gearing up for an exciting lineup of events and amenities inspired by the charm of coastal European travels.

Weekly Events on the Rooftop Pool Deck

Starting June 6, the hotel’s popular rooftop pool deck will be the place to be every Thursday and Friday evening. Au Soleil Thursdays are making a comeback, now accompanied by the newly introduced Au Soleil Fridays. From 5:30 to 8 p.m., locals and guests alike can unwind during Golden Hour, enjoying live music from Alexander Ruwe and the Red Jacket Band, delicious snacks and dinner entrees from Café la Vie, and a refreshing cocktail menu featuring rosé and lemonade. Tickets are required for these events and can be purchased in advance on Eventbrite.

“Au Soleil Thursday nights were so popular last year that they sold out within the first few weeks of summer. With the introduction of Au Soleil Fridays, we’re excited that more locals will get to experience our pool deck. It truly is an urban oasis in the middle of downtown Clayton!”

– Danielle Minninger, the hotel’s Marketing Manager

Luxurious In-Room Amenities

Guests booking the 2024 Au Soleil room package will find their stay enhanced with a variety of thoughtful touches. The package includes an in-room cooler stocked with refreshing canned cocktails and fruit juices, and a curated selection of summer pool reads handpicked by the local bookstore, Novel Neighbor. Designed to evoke the spirit of a European beach vacation, this package provides everything needed for a perfect day lounging by the pool. Additionally, it includes overnight accommodation and parking for one vehicle. This offer is available from May 28 through September 30 and can be booked directly on the hotel’s website.
