NOTE: We just learned that there are no longer rooms available for Saturday night at the Moonrise, and, if you have not already made your hotel reservations, the hotel may be full by the time you call! If that is the case, here are some other lodging options:
Homewood Suites St. Louis – Galleria -- We just arranged to have a small block of rooms set aside here as well (for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday) at a rate of $139. This hotel is about 3.5 miles away from the Moonrise Hotel. And it is conveniently located a block or two away from a MetroLink station. To reserve a room, please call Jill at 314-450-2202 or email her; the group code is SFE. The deadline for hotel reservations at the meeting rate is October 19, 2011.
Airport Hotels: These might offer more affordable alternatives. The Airport is approximately a half hour drive from the Loop. We recommend checking with the hotel to confirm how close it is to a MetroLink station. Also, some have free shuttles to the airport or the nearest MetroLink Station. You can catch MetroLink and take it to the Loop where the Conference is being held.
