LOCAL ACCOMODATIONS:

General Accommodations Details:
We have reserved blocks of rooms at two hotels in downtown St. Louis. The hotels are near Union Station, a historic train station that is now a complex of restaurants, shopping and entertainment. The hotels are literally one block apart! There will be a hospitality suite at the Hampton Inn (for meeting, hanging out, etc.), which is also the location of the casual brunch we will be having for everyone on Sunday. Please book your rooms by April 4th, 2001. The block of rooms will be held until that date, but there is a convention in town, and many of the downtown hotels are fully booked. So, book early.

Accommodation Option 1:

Hyatt Regency, Union Station
One St. Louis Union Station
St. Louis, MO 63103
(314) 231-1234

The Choksi - Burns wedding party room rate at this location is $119 per night. There are 5 rooms remaining on this block, and the hotel is almost sold out.
Comments: Travelocity has rooms at the Hyatt at $194 per night, so be sure to ask for the Choksi - Burns wedding party - the book by date has passed so you may need to be charming to get the $119 rate. You can also call their toll-free number at (800) 233-1234
