Unbeatable downtown location
Inconsistent customer service
Tucked in St. Louis' downtown area within walking distance of Busch Stadium and the city's iconic Gateway Arch, this Hilton outpost is ideal for those looking to see many of the city's top attractions. But that doesn't mean business travelers won't enjoy staying here. Those in town for work will have access to the property's business center and seven meeting spaces, all of which are less than a mile away from the 502,000-square-foot America's Center Convention Complex. After you wrap up business or a fun day out in St. Louis, make your way back to the hotel for a meal at 400 Olive. Open for breakfast, lunch (excluding weekends) and dinner, this eatery features traditional American dishes with a twist. Past diners praised the great service and buffet offerings but noted that if you're looking for more affordable fare, you may want to dine elsewhere. To further offset costs, Hilton Honors rewards members can earn and redeem points here. Once you decide to retire for the evening, unwind in one of 195 beige-toned guest rooms. Each includes a minifridge, high speed internet (for a fee), Hilton Serenity bedding and a 37-inch flat-panel TV.

Critic Reviews



Downtown St. Louis has an impressive number of hotel chains ensconced in renovated historic buildings… [including] the upscale Hilton St. Louis Downtown, 400 Olive St., in the historic Merchants-Laclede building, with many of its original features intact (a former vault is now a gift shop).

Location & Parking

In bustling downtown St. Louis, the Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch, as its name promises, is a short two-block walk from the city’s famed Gateway Arch monument and the Mississippi River. The Greek Revival building, completed in 1888, housed the Merchant Laclede National Bank and office space prior to its 2005 acquisition by Hilton. After purchasing the property, the Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch underwent a substantial renovation to modernize its interiors. The hotel retains some of the building’s original characteristics, including the original 1880s bank vaults and marble throughout the lobby area.
