The Gateway Arch - views over St. Louis

An iconic monument honoring America's pioneering spirit, the Gateway Arch is an internationally famous symbol of St. Louis. From atop the world's tallest arch at 630 feet, you'll enjoy awe-inspiring views of downtown St. Louis, the Mighty Mississippi, and 30 miles in any direction on a clear day. After a short tram ride up the Arch's leg, you'll experience the same beckoning wonder felt by America's earliest pioneers surveying the horizon's expanse. Before climbing the iconic Gateway Arch, watch Monument to the Dream, shown at the base of the arch, to fully appreciate its architectural wonder and symbolic importance. As a St. Louis Central West End hotel at the Gateway Arch, Chase Park Plaza offers rooms with views of this treasured Midwest landmark.
