Its been 4 months since we held our daughters wedding at the Best Western Premier Alton-St. Louis Area Hotel in Alton. I can’t say enough about how special and accommodating the staff, management and all involved was towards us and the bride and groom. The food, was Delicious and assistance from the staff after the wedding helping to pack up was so nice. The attention that we were given and still to this day when we walk in, makes us feel like home.   I would and I do, recommend anyone that wants to feel like home..use this hotel.
