March 2020 – The highly anticipated multi-concept “sports” hotel, Live! by Loews – St. Louis, MO, officially welcomed its first guests on 24 February 2020 in the heart of St. Louis’ Ballpark Village.
Live! by Loews – St. Louis, Missouri is an entertainment hub and ideal home base located steps away from Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals, one of the USA’s most successful Major League Baseball (MLB) teams. With 216 luxury guest rooms, including 19 suites, its décor reflects a simple, modern style with inventive design touches reflecting the origins of American baseball.
The hotel boasts four restaurants & lounges and a 1,392 square-foot Presidential Suite. Each of the 216 guest rooms at Live! by Loews – St. Louis, MO features floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the neighbouring stadium and city landmarks such as Gateway Arch.
Meetings and special events groups can take advantage of 17,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor flexible event space capable of accommodating more than 500 guests in a single location.
Each of the hotel’s four food & beverage concepts embodies a true taste of St. Louis, with Bourbon at the heart, and offer exceptional spaces for entertaining and lounging. The chef-curated concepts are overseen by Executive Chef Matt Lange, who brings more than a decade of international hospitality experience and an innovative approach to dining in downtown St Louis.
The hotel is built on St. Louis Cardinals history, situated atop the former site of the 1966 Busch II Stadium, with intentional design notes, artworks and Cardinal Red accents modestly placed throughout guest rooms and public spaces to narrate its deep Cardinals connection. Numbers from retired Cardinal Baseball players’ jerseys greet guests at check in pods, and the etched stitching of baseballs is displayed in various décor elements throughout the property.
“The opening of Live! by Loews – St. Louis, MO marks another step in Loews Hotels & Co’s significant growth and a new milestone as we venture into Missouri for the first time, continuing our commitment to make deliberate investments into emerging markets which will enhance the portfolio,” said Jonathan Tisch, Chairman & CEO, Loews Hotels & Co.
“We are honoured to bring the Loews heritage in hospitality to downtown and Ballpark Village. We invite group and leisure travellers to immerse themselves into a thoughtfully curated experience created specifically for St. Louis, by Loews Hotels & Co, The Cordish Companies and the St. Louis Cardinals.”
Live! by Loews – St. Louis, MO is the city’s first new build hotel project in nearly a decade.
