Lambert Airport is approximately 45 minutes from downtown St. Louis via the Metrolink rail system. It's a straight shot with no train changes, and the fare is cheap. There are two stops within five minutes' walk of the hotel:
8th and Pine, and Convention Center.
Another great option is Mid-America airport (airport code BLV) in Belleville, IL. It is only 30 minutes from downtown St. Louis and Allegiant Air has many cheap flights into Belleville from all over the country. There is even ground transportation ($3 one way) to/from the Metrolink and Mid-America Airport.
