The Chase Park Plaza hotel in St. Louis is a four star hotel with a one million square foot footprint in the west side of the downtown district. Built by Harold Koplar, the hotel has been operating for nearly 50 years in the downtown area. It has a tradition of classic elegance and upscale amenities.
The building is considered something of a St. Louis landmark due to the age of the hotel and the fact that the building also housed the TV station KPLR for a time. The large size of the hotel makes it a popular location for banquets, charity events and society balls. Weddings and conferences also take advantage of the hotel's ability to handle large groups and bookings need to be made some time in advance to get around the popularity of the place.
Chase Park Plaza hotel in St. Louis offers five different dining options to guests. The restaurants are popular, with reasonable prices and a strong following from locals. The bar, Chaser's, is an especially popular destination for theater goers and movie fans who have been over to the Chase Park Plaza Cinema.
Because the hotel building itself can be a destination, the location does not get deserted at night like some of the other downtown area hotels. The restaurants are busy and there is foot traffic between the neighboring attractions to put travelers at ease. Valet parking is available to complement the street parking options and provide an alternative to the local covered garages.
Rooms are primarily single kings or queens, with large bathrooms and workspaces. T1 high speed internet is available along with satellite TV service. Group reservations and family packages are offered but should be negotiated with the front desk rather than booked through the website. Seasonal packages can also offer room discounts, but generally not in the summer time months.
