Information on the main and overflow hotels is included below. While you may use any hotel in the area, we will only provide shuttle service from Union Station and Hilton Ballpark to events such as the conference party.
Note that as all staff, speakers, and grant attendees are staying at Union Station, there are a limited number of rooms available.
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: 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 Peabody Opera House. The Peabody (formerly the Kiel Opera House) is a long-time performing arts venue in the heart of downtown St. Louis that was beautifully restored and re-opened in 2011. It hosts a 3500 seat main hall and four large side ballrooms and we'll use them all! We are very excited to return to the Peabody in 2018.
This year we will also be utilizing the Union Station Ballrooms as breakout rooms for the main conference Sept 27-28th. Shuttles will run between Union Station and the Peabody Opera House throughout the conference days.
