5 Reasons to Stay at Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark While Visiting The Arch
The $380-million renovation project of the Gateway Arch National Park unveiled this summer earned kudos across the nation as a new kind of urban national park. For the four million out-of-towners who visit the Arch each year, the renovated grounds and the completely redesigned Gateway Arch Museum make St. Louis a destination worth stopping overnight—and here are five reasons why the Hilton at the Ballpark makes the perfect headquarters for exploring the Arch and the rest of Downtown.
1.) 360 Rooftop Bar
This impressive showcase for the St. Louis skyline can be enjoyed indoors or out, over dinner or drinks, while conversing with friends around a fire pit or dancing to a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights. Hotel guests receive complimentary access to 360 Rooftop Bar—giving you $10 more per person to spend on cocktails, bottles from the impressive wine wall or dishes like oysters on the half shell, meatball sliders or Korean barbecue tacos.
2.) Best views
The hotel’s location on the southern edge of Downtown means that guests have a fabulous view in any direction: the St. Louis Cardinals baseball stadium and historic neighborhoods to the south, Arch and riverfront to the East, Kiener Plaza to the north, and city of St. Louis to the west. The views are framed by huge picture windows that blend with the hotel’s modern décor, making it feel like the scenes are works of art offered just for you.
3.) Walkability to the Arch
The best way to experience the Gateway Arch’s world-class landscaping is with your feet on the ground and your eyes pointed up toward the 630-foot steel structure. Walkability is central to the new design. So it makes perfect sense to find a hotel near the new greenway connecting downtown to the park. On your 10-minute stroll from the Hilton to the Arch, you’ll be treated to the full force of the 1965 architectural wonder and its 2018 surroundings.
4.) Ballpark Village and Busch Stadium
Ranked by Fox Sports as the best baseball town in America, St. Louis has a proud baseball legacy—and Busch Stadium reflects that hometown pride. Across the street, Ballpark Village entertains fans before, during and after the game, with convenient nightlife options for locals and visitors alike. Many rooms at the Hilton overlook both the village and the stadium, making them popular with Cards fans on game days.
St. Louis has long been a melting pot for great culture, and the Hilton is positioned at the epicenter of that mix. St. Louis’ French roots mix with influences from Africa, Europe, Latin America and Asia in an eclectic gathering of shops, arts institutions and music Downtown. To learn more about the region’s history, visit one of the original riverfront neighborhoods on Laclede’s Landing, tour the National Blues Museum, and release your inner child at the one-of-a-kind City Museum. Take in the classic architecture and breathtaking video show at the historic Union Station, and its recently renovated Grand Hall. And don’t miss the first full-scale aquarium to be built in St. Louis, coming to Union Station next fall in 2019.
If your travel plans are flexible, consider booking your stay at the Hilton on a Sunday or a holiday, when room rates can be discounted by more than 50 percent!
