Joyce Meyer Convention

Hey guys

I hope this hasn't be posted yet, but I am going to the Joyce Meyer's Women Conference this year in St Louis, in the Dome Theatre. I am from the UK and I have never been to St Louis before I am hoping to make a holiday of it.

Can anyone suggest a inexpensive hotel that is not too far from the Convention. Also in terms of travel, what is the most used source, I have been to NYC and I know everyone uses the Metro there.

I am also a shopaholic..so I would love to know where all the bargin places are for shopping, I sure there will be some...and just generally site seeing places..

I look forward to all responses...

Thank you so much for your time and help

God bless

Liana

The locals call it the Edward Jones Dome in the Convention Center - the Joyce Meyer convention is in the same location as our local football games.

So, take a look at the "Hotels by the Edward Jones Dome" discussion. At the moment, the Drury Inn (my choice) and the Hampton Inn seem to be the least expensive.

The Metro, our equivent of the Tube, stops right at the Convention Center.

Our downtown is starting to attract some nice little shops, and we have a Macy's (aka Famous Barr). Since I dislike shopping, I am not sure where else to direct you.

MetroLink light rail is a great way to get around. A new line opening next week will allow access to the upscale Galleria mall. The University City Loop is also accessible by train and is home to outdoor cafes, entertainment and shops. A newer mall called St. Louis Mills is a factory outlet for many different designers and brands. You'd need to take a cab or bus because it is in the suburbs. Old St. Charles (also in the suburbs) has many little antique shops and restaurants in their historic downtown. There's an antiques district on Cherokee St. in south St. Louis as well.

Cabfare is probably $40 (one way) between downtown and St. Louis Mills and slightly more to get to St. Charles. You'd have to find an awful lot of bargains to pay for that! However, the Metro website's trip planner says you can take a MetroLink train to the N. Hanley station and switch to the #34 bus for a ride to the mall.

Much cheaper, but you'd have a lot of bus stops to sit through. It doesn't appear that there is a bus route to St. Charles.

We are driving several hours for the convention in September.

A group of four of us girls from work will be attending what is sure to be a wonderful event.

Many of the hotels are offering shuttles to and from the convention. There is information in the registration pack you will recieve after registering.

We made reservations at the Millinneum for two nights before reading the reviews on Trip Advisor!! :( I'll expect the worst...

and pray for the best!! Would love some upbeat info on that property!
