from the homeowner | The Chase Park Plaza Royal Sonesta is truly a landmark. Rising above the Central West End, it offers some of the finest architecture and luxury amenities in St. Louis—not to mention easy access to amazing shops, restaurants and Forest Park. This condo offers the chance to experience it all from the 14th floor. The current owner is offering a peek inside at all the iconic building has to offer.

What have you enjoyed about living in the Central West End?
You walk out of your apartment, and you’re in a vibrant environment. Go east, and you’ve got great restaurants, shopping, a library and more. Head west, and you’re in Forest Park with all of its great attractions and outdoor amenities. It’s the best of both worlds—urban and rustic all at once. Previously, we’d always lived in the suburbs, but we’ve truly enjoyed it.

Tell me about the amenities at The Chase.
It’s like living at a five-star resort. There is a complimentary valet service, three restaurants, a bar, pool and movie theater. The service is very friendly and personalized. The staff knows your name and is always willing to assist you, whether it’s helping carry up groceries or watering your plants while you’re out of town. It’s also great for out-of-town guests since the hotel is attached.

What are some standout features of the condo?
It’s a corner unit, so there are spectacular views from every window. You can watch the sunrises over the Gateway Arch every morning. The apartment also is very good for entertaining. There’s a bar area with great storage for china and crystal, and there’s room for two tables—we had one for dining and another for games. The second bedroom has a built-in desk, so it can serve as an office or space for guests.

Do you have a favorite room?
Absolutely the living room. The views are amazing, and the windows are quite large. You have an unobstructed sightline to downtown, or you can look down on Maryland Avenue, where there is always something happening. It’s on the 14th floor, so you have a bird’s eye view and can look out over the treetops.

What do you want the next owners to know?
It’s truly easy to live here. If you travel, all you have to do is turn the key, and you’ll know it will be OK while you’re gone. This is a condo that allows for a lot of spontaneity. You’re just an elevator ride from the Central West End, or you can take a walk to Forest Park. It’s truly the best of St. Louis.
