If you haven't booked a hotel room yet, do so now! Hotels are booking up quickly, and it's difficult to maintain a list of possible hotels. Get thee to Kayak and find something now!! Downtown is the closest hotel area to the wedding venue. Central West End and Forest Park are about 15-20 minutes away. Airport hotels are approximately 30 minutes away and in a rather depressing area.
