St. Louis is about to become the Midwest's second city
to have a Four Seasons Hotel
. The project is currently under construction.
Executives of Las Vegas-based Pinnacle Entertainment announced yesterday that they had reached an agreement to have their hotel operate under the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts
flag. The 24-story state-of-the-art hotel
, which will be illuminated at night, is an anchor of Pinnacle's massive casino just north of Laclede's Landing. "The tower will be illuminated from within at night with a striking arc of light, creating a new square icon in the downtown skyline."
According to the St. Louis Business Journal, Pinnacle's casino and resort, named Lumière Place
, is expected to be open for business by the end of this year. The hotel will be atop a new parking garage, with views overlooking downtown St. Louis. The hotel will have 200 rooms and a 12,000-square-foot spa. Several restaurants will also be on site including an upscale steakhouse.
In November, Pinnacle announced subsequent phases to the 20-acre development could top $1 billion. The first phase is nearly $500-million. Additional phases, based on market demand, include plans for eight residential buildings totaling 375 condos, and 220,810 square feet of commercial space.
