With locations throughout the city, including the heart of downtown and family friendly Forest Park, there’s a Holiday Inn® St. Louis hotel to suit every traveler’s needs. Whether it’s business or leisure that brings you to our hotels in St. Louis, this iconic city beckons you to explore its unique neighborhoods, beautiful parks, and celebrated museums and art galleries.
Kick off your tour of St. Louis with the most famous - and tallest - attraction of all, the Gateway Arch. Ride the elevator to the top for an impressive view of the city skyline or head below to visit the Museum of Westward Expansion (which chronicles the building of this impressive structure). Next, visit Soulard or Laclede’s Landing, two of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the cobblestone streets of historic downtown St. Louis or hop on the modern MetroLink light rail system for easy access to the city’s most popular destinations.
South of Soulard is the famous Anheuser-Busch Brewery, where free tours and free samples are sure to please beer aficionados. Fashionistas will love the shops and boutiques of the posh Central West End. There’s also a great selection of restaurants and cafes in this area – perfect spots to sit and people watch, especially if the weather’s nice during your St. Louis hotel stay. Grand Center is the city’s major performing arts and museum district. Both the Fabulous Fox Theatre and Contemporary Art Museum are worthwhile stops on any traveler’s itinerary.
Forest Park, one of the nation’s largest public city parks, offers a variety of activities the whole family can enjoy during your stay in our St. Louis hotels. Depending on the season, you can have a picnic at the World’s Fair Pavilion or ice skate around Steinberg Rink. The park also hosts the St. Louis Science Center, where you’ll find an IMAX theater, planetarium and interactive exhibits, and the St. Louis Art Museum, which boasts a well-round collection from almost every culture and time period. You’ll also want to stop by the top-ranked St. Louis Zoo, Missouri Botanical Garden or City Museum – a somewhat misleading name for this oversized playground of mazes, obstacle courses and activity centers.
Of course, this is only a small sampling of what the city has to offer. Our St. Louis hotels are situated near almost every major attraction and quintessential St. Louis experience. Choose the location that works best for your travel needs and enjoy your stay in this amazing city!
