Reserve your room in GFOA’s official hotel block and you’ll have a great opportunity to network with other conference attendees outside the convention center. GFOA will run dedicated shuttle between the Pear Tree Inn and Drury Inn Union Station and the convention center during the duration of the conference. GFOA will run courtesy shuttle between the Westin, Hilton Ballpark, and Drury Plaza and the convention center during the duration of the conference. 

All other hotels in the GFOA official block are within walking distance to the convention center. Specific routes and schedules will be posted on as they become available.

Experient is the Official Housing Provider for GFOA’s 112th Annual Conference. GFOA has worked diligently with the hotels in St. Louis to establish room blocks for attendees and exhibitors. Solicitation of hotel reservations from any company or housing provider other than Experient is not approved by GFOA. Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may appear to be for lower rates; however, they may be illegitimate, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable. Please be aware of and report any unauthorized solicitation to GFOA.
