The Hilton St. Louis Frontenac is a mixed use hotel that offers leisure and business travelers the facilities to meet their needs. The midtown-suburban location avoids the downtown traffic while still remaining within reasonable distance of many area attractions. Washington University, the Arch, Busch Stadium and the Casino are just short drives down 64-40 away.
Most noted for the large amounts of function space, the Frontenac is popular for conventions and weddings. The largest meeting room is the 10,000 square foot Ambassador Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 1,000 people. All told, there are 23,000 square feet of function space in the hotel. Catering for events is available and surprisingly good for hotel food according to posted accounts.
The Hilton St. Louis Frontenac fell off the map temporarily as the main entrance spent nearly a year undergoing serious renovation. Completed in late 2008, the renovations make the main entrance a French-inspired tribute with an elevated dome and sparkling chandelier. The grand entrance road leads subtly away to the covered parking deck in the back and the expanses of uncovered parking that are behind the hotel.
The large amounts of free parking available are in part due to the hotel's proximity to the Plaza Frontenac, which has many upscale retailers on site. Weekends can be extremely busy, especially near the holidays, so park carefully and try to shop at off-peak hours. School-time traffic between Manchester and 64-40 can also cause congestion near the hotel so plan accordingly.
Dining and drinks are available on site, as well as hair care and tailoring. For other needs the Plaza Frontenac is just steps away, or the front desk can make arrangements to meet your needs. Families and large groups are welcome, and group rates for weddings and conferences can be arranged by working with the conference planner or the front desk,
