ST. LOUIS - Today, Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch announced the completion of a multi-million dollar renovation of the hotel's public spaces, guestrooms, restaurant and lounge as well as meeting rooms. Located in the heart of downtown St. Louis in the historical building of the former Merchant Laclède National Bank, Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch offers convenient access to many of the city's attractions, including the Gateway Arch shopping, dining and entertainment districts and sports stadiums.

Baskervill, an award-winning architectural and design firm, worked to create a more cohesive design throughout the hotel's public space. The guest registration area, lobby lounge and bar were opened to create an inviting atmosphere and connect the public space with the restaurant. A neutral palette allows the bold floor patterns and colors to take a stronger presence and add an exciting new, energy to this traditional building.

"We wanted to make this beautiful, historic building more current while still preserving the existing architectural structure and details," said Mark Brown, general manager, Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch. "The enhanced design and amenities meet the needs and expectations of today's business and leisure travelers but the building itself seamlessly blends into its surroundings of Laclède's Landing with cobblestone streets and vintage warehouses dating from 1850."

The comprehensive enhancement project includes a dynamic, new design of the hotel's 195 guestrooms and suites, featuring new soft goods throughout. Upgrades such as new carpeting, seating, bedding, enhanced lighting, new window treatments, bathroom cabinetry and in-room safes have been made to offer guests a more comfortable and ergonomic environment.

The public spaces including the lobby, 400 Olive restaurant and the Merchants Lounge will showcase all new furnishings, fixtures and artwork. A beautiful private dining room has also been added in the restaurant to host small parties and gatherings. In the lobby, guests will be welcomed by expanded seating areas with comfortable, contemporary furnishings, televisions displayed within exquisite millwork, new artwork that reflects the hotels more modern atmosphere and a new wine display. In the Merchants Lounge guests will be able to grab a cup of coffee freshly made with the hotel's new Verismo machine and in the evening enjoy a signature cocktail while watching one of three new televisions set above the bar.

The 5,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space at Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch also underwent enhancements with new carpeting and instillation of new lighting equipment including dimmable options.
