Convenient hotel locations
There are several hotels next door to the Center or in the immediate area, providing a choice for location, amenities, prices, and use of your various loyalty / rewards programs. We encourage you to call and reserve your rooms as soon as possible.
How far are the hotels from the convention center?
Working together with the Gateway Center and each hotel, we have put together a reasonably complete listing of the hotels in the immediate area. Many of these facilities are close enough that you can even walk to the Gateway Center. All of the hotels serving the Gateway Center complex are handicap accessible, and some require a drive of only a couple minutes at most to the Gateway Center.
How many nights will I need to book?
Most RPM attendees choose to arrive on Thursday evening in order to spend a full two days at this event, participate in social activities, meet others of like interest, and be ready for the 9:00 a.m. opening on Friday morning. To do that, attendees normally need at least two nights lodging for the meet.
When should I book my hotel stay?
Many other events are being held in the Collinsville area at the same time as RPM, so reserving your room early can help you get a room before the RPM room rates and room availability are no longer guaranteed. During our event alone, we occupy nearly 400 room nights. Therefore, we recommend reserving your room before the 4th of July holiday each year in order to get the best rate and the hotel of your choice. Making that call before St. Patrick’s Day is even better!
What is the RPM Round Up?
In cooperation with our host hotel, the Double Tree, RPM guests can join in the camaraderie of other attendees on Friday evening at the Lounge in the large lobby of the hotel. They provide a lovely array of appetizers, compliments of the Double Tree. Beverages can be purchased in the same area. Known as the “RPM Round Up,” this social event is held every year on Friday night about the time the layout tours end, the Gateway Center closes and most attendees have returned from dinner engagements.
Host Hotel for 2023
Our host hotel, the DoubleTree, is our way of providing a main hotel where you can meet many of the vendors, exhibitors, clinicians, and members of various historical societies that happen to stay there too. RPM attendees often gather in the restaurants, lounges, and open meeting areas to discuss common interests. While all of the various hotels listed have several attendees staying with them over that weekend, the Double Tree tends to have the largest number of RPM attendees staying with them.
We have special rates!
Please use the phrase “RPM” when booking room or talking to reservationist to get the RPM Rate.
The RPM Rate is only guaranteed for July 27-29th at the hotels. Ask for these dates first and then if you need to exceed that time period; talk to the reservationist about that after securing your RPM Rate.
Please note that the hotels are charging more for rooms the on weekend of the STL RPM due to the Cards-Cubs series that also falls on that weekend. Room availability will also be much more in demand than normal and booking rooms early is very much encouraged for 2023. We do not know if the baseball schedule will impact 2024 or not, as the schedule has not come out for that year.
While providing an excellent facility to host our program is our main focus, the ability for you to select a conveniently located quality hotel of your choosing is of importance as well. Feel free to call any of these hotels and select the one that fits your budget, and needs for amenities.
