About the Coronado Ballroom The Coronado Hotel, built in 1926, is located at 3701 Lindell Boulevard. Designed by Preston Bradshaw, the St. Louis architect not only owned the building, but also lived there with his family until he died. The Coronado is long remembered by many St. Louisans as an elegant hotel where luminaries such as Barbara Stanwyck, Harry Truman and Mae West Stayed. In the 1940’s and 1950’s many St. Lousans were married at this location. During the 1960’s and 1970’s, the Coronado was a St. Louis University dormitory popular with the school’s law students. After being closed for many years, the Coronado reopened after a lavish renovation in 2003.
