ST. LOUIS – Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch, a business and leisure hotel located in the heart of downtown St. Louis on the iconic Gateway Arch grounds, has completed new guestrooms in conjunction with the renovation of the Arch area. The guestroom updates also complement the reimagining to the hotel’s lobby which was completed in 2016.
“We are very excited to announce the completion of the multimillion-dollar renovation to our guestrooms and lobby,” said Joe Hindsley, general manager at Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch. “As downtown St. Louis and the Gateway Arch grounds continue to transform into a premier travel destination, we are thrilled to offer guests the newest accommodations available paired with monumental hospitality and service.”
The design of the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch’s guestroom and lobby renovations were inspired by its surroundings to reflect the nearby iconic attractions. For example, the hotel features brand new carpeting that appears asymmetrical and wavy to reflect the splashing of the Mississippi River as well as an updated color palette of cool grays and blues in order to showcase the metallic steel tone of the 630-foot Gateway Arch.
The hotel’s 910 guestrooms were updated with fresh paint, wall vinyl covering, new carpet and furniture, artwork reflecting the local area, as well as the addition of state-of-the-art 50-inch high-definition televisions with entertainment systems. The guestrooms are also equipped with complimentary wi-fi, iHome alarm clock radios, deluxe bath amenities, video checkout services through the television, and more.
With the renovation, each of the hotel’s premiere VIP suites including the Presidential Suite, Governor Suite, and Regency Suite were redesigned to reflect a high-design style paired with an ambiance of pure luxury. Featuring stunning, panoramic views of the Gateway Arch, each suite includes brand new wood floors, updated stylish furniture, chic art and decorations, fireplaces, sleek working spaces, 65-inch high-definition swivel televisions with entertainment systems, in-mirror LCD clocks, and fully-stocked wet bars. The updated VIP suites also showcase new, comfortable entertainment areas featuring unique amenities such as billiards and poker tables, making them perfect venues for hosting small events, private functions, or VIP receptions.
In 2016, Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch completed a reimagining to its lobby which included a recladding to the columns, an updated color palette, and a redesign of the seating areas to inspire a sense of connection and openness.
Situated right next to the Gateway Arch, the hotel’s renovation has taken place in line with the Gateway Arch Park Foundation’s major revitalization of the area. Through the revitalization, the Gateway Arch grounds have transformed into a world-class destination including expanded parks and lawns, foot and bike trails, and easy access linking all of the national park’s on-site attractions.
The transformation kicked off in 2013, and debuted the “Park Over the Highway” bridge which connects downtown St. Louis directly to the Gateway Arch with one continuous greenway to provide easy pedestrian access. It has also introduced the renovated Kiener Plaza, a 1.9 acre park next to the Old Courthouse which hosts events such as community workouts and outdoor concerts. Continued updates are planned with the introduction of new exhibits at the Museum of Westward Expansion, as well as updates to the Gateway Arch’s visitor center which are set to be completed in Summer 2018.
“With the historic reimagining of the Gateway Arch and its surroundings, we are excited to see transformations happening surrounding the park,” said Eric Moraczewski, executive director of Gateway Arch Park Foundation. “Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch has been a great partner throughout the project and we look forward to its guests being just steps away from enjoying all of the new and expanded parks, walking and biking paths, children’s play areas, and venues which host entertainment acts throughout the year.”
Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch is located in the heart of downtown and provides easy access to all of the city’s most popular attractions. Located within walking distance from the hotel, guests can enjoy professional baseball games at Busch Stadium, explore Ballpark Village and all of the entertainment districts of downtown St. Louis, visit the new National Blues Museum, take a riverboat ride on the Mississippi River, and much more.
