St. Louis is known as the Gateway to the West with St. Louis Union Station located at the heart of the gateway. Once a bustling train station with 22 railroad tracks, dining space, a large Train Shed and unparalleled design, Union Station was converted in the 1980’s once train travel had all but stopped. The St. Louis Union Station Hotel, a Curio Collection by Hilton property, boast 567 spacious guest rooms and suites, 106,599 square feet of event space and six dining options, including in room dining and the Grand Hall Market serving Starbucks coffee and other snacks.
Everywhere along the way you will experience the mix of retro throwbacks and contemporary beauty. The Union Station Soda Fountain will take you back to the station’s heyday, while a state-of-the-art “Fire, Water and Light” music show will dazzle all your senses. As Tim Cooper, General Manager, states “The hotel is stylish and sophisticated with elements of fun sprinkled throughout”.
The hotel stands as part of the overall Union Station attraction site. In this extensive entertainment hub, you can experience an aquarium, ropes courses, the St. Louis Wheel and more. The mixture of practicality and fun all in one convenient location, makes this destination ideal for families and groups. “St. Louis Union Station is a one-stop-shop for meeting planners and travelers alike. A national historic landmark with over 100,000 SQFT of meeting space, 567 newly renovated sleeping rooms, attractions & restaurants within walking distance – it is truly an experience, not just a hotel stay” says Katelyn Hindsley, Director of Regional Sales.
When it’s time to venture out of the hotel, there is no short supply of sights to see. The hotel is down the street from Busch Stadium where you can catch a Cardinals game or enjoy the sports entertainment district of Baseball Stadium. Of course, no trip to St. Louis is complete without visiting the famed St. Louis Arch, which is an easily walkable 1 mile from Union Station.
