4. General Information:

The DoubleTree Forest Park is located in the “Central West End”. This is a small St Louis neighborhood that is very walkable and located just across Forest Park Ave from where your hotel is. The cross street of your hotel is Euclid which is also the main street in the Central West End. You can walk down Euclid about 7 blocks and find boutiques, antique shops, an independent book store, coffee shops, bars and sidewalk restaurants. Many of our fellows choose to live in this cosmopolitan neighborhood close to the hospital.
