A St. Louis Icon

The Forest Park Hotel has been a focal destination within the Central West End for decades. Due to its beautifully preserved architectural details, this St. Louis landmark remains on the list of the National Register of Historic Places.

Historic Luxury

  • The Central West End

    Home to the 1904 World’s Fair, the Central West End is a sophisticated community teeming with old world charm. Designed by prominent St. Louis architect Preston J. Bradshaw, The Forest Park Hotel was welcomed into the bustling community in 1923.

  • A Smashing Success

    Following the early success of the hotel, a seven-story center wing addition was added in 1926. This new addition closely followed the materials and design of the original building, allowing the new architecture to fit in flawlessly. The luxurious hotel drew in many entertainment and sports figures throughout its prime.

  • Circus Snack Bar

    The famous nightclub was located on the hotel’s ground floor retail space. During its peak in the 1930s and ’40s, the club hosted performers such as Liberace, Louis Armstrong and Sarah Vaughan.

  • More Additions in the 1960s

    A one-story stone and glass addition was added to highlight the exquisite architecture of the building in the 1960s. These additions worked to improve the appearance of the hotel and garnered more attention for this featured St. Louis destination.

  • New Ownership in 1983

    Harold Butler, founder of Denny’s restaurants, bought The Forest Park Hotel and performed over 7 million dollars of renovations. Although the hotel was improved during Butler’s ownership, the building foreclosed in 1990 due to financial difficulties.

  • Hotel Rooms to Apartment Homes

    In 2003, Fairway Construction under the direction of JES Development, renovated and converted the dormant hotel into lavish apartment homes turning the former hotel into The Residences at Forest Park Hotel. The apartment community is now known for its vibrant, historic building updated with modern amenities.

  • The Residences at Forest Park Hotel

    From its beginning as an elegant hotel in 1923, the building has been through many different phases and owners, leading to its status as a historic apartment community today. With its beautiful features, comfortable furnishings and endless amenities, residents love living at The Residences at Forest Park Hotel community.
