6300 Clayton Road, St. Louis, MO, 63117 / Cake artist: Diane Hansen
The Cheshire, one of St. Louis’ top hotels, is located right on the St. Louis city limits line and next to the famous enlarged Amoco sign. Pronounced either ‘chesh-shire’ or ‘chesh-shurr’, it is a combination of a British-themed hotel, restaurant and shop. The hotel pays tribute to British style and culture, and it is said in each hotel room there is plenty of history about England on the walls. In the 1930s, the Cheshire started out as a modest hamburger restaurant.
