One great thing about the city is an abundance of hotel rooms, convention and meeting space, and amenities for travelers. Since the city boast a low cost of living, even for the Midwest, you might find even the most expensive hotels relatively affordable; rooms at even the Ritz-Carlton start in the mid $200s per night.
St. Louis , Safety:
St. Louis' recent designation as the Most Dangerous City in America should not deter the potential visitor. Areas most often visited by tourists are no more dangerous than any other large American city. The more popular and most-visited areas in the city, such as Clayton, Downtown, the Central West End, and Forest Park have very low crime rates, even for the Midwest. Caution is warranted in other locales, particularly the North Side. . East St. Louis, in Illinois, is also noted for a higher crime rate than the Missouri side. Most tourists, however, will have little reason to visit these places, so it should not present reason for much concern. Some Metrolink stations are located in areas some may find questionable after dark as well, but most downtown areas around Busch Stadium, Union Station, St. Louis University area, and commuter lots near the airport are generally safe and patrolled.
