Hotel Information

Book a Room online!

Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark is steps away from Busch Stadium, the Gateway Arch and other attractions.

Room rate is $139 per night for April 14, 15, 16 and 17.

Reservations should be made by phone 1-314-421-1776.


For those making reservations at the Ballpark Hilton for the Spring Meeting beginning on Saturday, April 14th, we have experienced an unexpectedly high level of interest in the meeting, and the room block for that evening is sold out.  We apologize for this inconvenience.

Note: If you're locked out of the Ballpark Hilton on Saturday, check back with the hotel periodically even if you've made reservations somewhere else.  In past years, a handful of people have cancelled their prior reservations, so a room may open up in the days before the meeting.

Overflow Hotel for Saturday, April 14

 
The conference hotel, Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark, has rooms for Sunday, April 15, through Tuesday, April 17. Because of the Cardinals' game, the hotel is sold out on Saturday night. The overflow hotel for Saturday night is the Hilton St. Louis Airport. Room Rate is $139. Reservations can be made by calling the main Hilton reservation line 1 800 445-8667. The group code is URA. Transportation will be provided from the Hilton St. Louis Airport to the meeting hotel on Saturday Sunday morning in time for the morning workshops.
