Other options

Generally any hotel search site can be used to find nearby hotels in downtown St. Louis at comparable rates. If you are flying in, it's easiest to find a hotel close to the St. Louis Metrolink light rail, which runs from the airport to downtown St. Louis and has stops near the conference venues.

Other hotels in close walking distance include include: Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark, Drury Inn, Pear Tree Inn, Courtyard by Marriott Downtown West, and the St. Louis City Center Hotel.


The conference will be held at the historic Union Station. Union Station was once one of the largest railroad stations in the world, and is now a hotel and conference space, with destination amenities like an aquarium, Ferris wheel, and restaurants.
