It’s 2022, which means that we are celebrating the 100th birthday of our iconic St. Louis hotel, The Chase Park Plaza Royal Sonesta St. Louis! This timeless Central West End landmark is a city-within-a-city, featuring several dining options, a  Mediterranean-style pool in an elegant piazza, and even an on-site movie theater. It’s storied past and place in history draws visitors in from all over the world.

The Chase Hotel opened September 29, 1922, nine stories high and built in just nine months. Owner Chase Ullman introduced his coup as the “largest and costliest residential hotel in any city approaching St. Louis in size.” Source

The hotel has welcomed celebrities throughout the decades, including Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and every US President since 1922. The hotel saw its way through Prohibition, survived a Great Depression foreclosure, and has been home to world class entertainment, including a wrestling league. If the building could speak, the stories it would tell!
