Stay in the St. Louis 2020 Boutique Hotel of the Year

As a winner of the 2020 Boutique Hotel of the Year, the Last Hotel should be your one and only St. Louis hospitality destination. Featuring Neoclassical and Art Deco stylings, the Last Hotel pays tribute to its past life as a shoe factory in the early 1900s. Since then The Last has been restored and converted into the St. Louis boutique hotel people know and love. With amenities like our event spaces and in-house restaurant along with our premium location in the heart of downtown St. Louis, the Last Hotel is one destination that should not be missed. 

History

Formerly a shoe factory, the Last Hotel was originally under the ownership of the prestigious International Shoe Company. As a nod to the hotel’s past life, we named The Last Hotel after a tool frequently used by shoemakers. In order to properly shape the

leather of a shoe, artisans would use a carving of a wooden foot, called a “last,” as a base for the shoe’s construction. Shoemakers think of the last as the “soul of the shoe,” much like we think of The Last Hotel as the soul of St. Louis. 

Décor

First built in 1909, the Last Hotel’s historic architectural design gives guests a glimpse into the rich past of St. Louis. Utilizing the Neoclassical and Art Deco movements, the Last Hotel features intricate stone carvings, decorative metalwork, and terrazzo floors all restored to their original glory. While the room interiors required some modern additions, every new inclusion draws inspiration from and honors the hotel’s storied past. The preservation of the building’s construction and use of vintage inspired furnishings has resulted in a true marriage of historic and modern St. Louis. Guests are able to seamlessly experience the atmosphere of a bygone era and the comforts of a present day boutique hotel.

Event Space

As a boutique hotel, the Last Hotel offers a truly unique hosting experience for your next event or wedding. The Last Hotel has two grand ballrooms, each perfect for large-scale events like conferences, weddings, or even family reunions. Watch parties can be hosted in our Star Screening Room which seats 30 and features an 82-inch TV as well as custom catering options. Brides-to-be have the option of booking our Bridal Parlor, where they and their bridesmaids can get ready for the main ceremony. Less formal events can book our 9th floor lounge for access to a pool table, poker table, and indoor basketball hoop along with 3 TVs to cover any and every sporting event of interest.

Food and Drink

The Last Hotel features its own in-house restaurant, Ultima Cucina. Modeled after an Italian steakhouse, Ultima Cucina offers a variety of Italian cuisine from pasta, pizza, and of course steak. For diners looking for more exclusive or intimate options, schedule a chef’s dinner or tasting with Chef Enoch. Try our Two Step Gin (an exclusive from STILL 630) or one of our prohibition themed cocktails while you dine and finish the meal with one of our decadent desserts. Guests who prefer less formal dining can snack at the Last Rooftop Bar or grab a bite from our pantry.
