St. Louis is awaiting the arrival of all you buckaroos coming into town to enjoy GFAI’s Roundup at the Arch!

Before you saddle up and ride out, here are some items to note:


Self park is no longer available at the hotel, but we have negotiated a great valet rate of just $13 per day!

Other garages are available as well and start at $8 per day and are within a short walking distance to the hotel.

Spouse Program

We have crafted a fabulous ½ day in St. Louis featuring some of the city’s best attractions!

The day will start with an Italian lunch at Favazza’s then will conclude with tours of two historical St. Louis icons.
