The Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel is located in the Washington Avenue Historic District in Downtown St. Louis, Missouri. The hotel was renovated in 2015HistoryThe Hotel Statler St. Louis was designed by George B. Post & Sons and was built in 1917 as part of the Statler Hotels chain. It was the first air-conditioned hotel in the United States. Statler Hotels was bought by Hilton in 1954, soon after the hotel became The Statler Hilton St. Louis. It was sold to Towne Realty Company of Milwaukee in 1966 and renamed The St. Louis Gateway Hotel. The hotel was sold to Denver businessman Victor Sayyah and St. Louis politician Peter J. Webbe in 1981 for $3.2 million. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. The hotel closed for a renovation in 1986, but caught fire on February 12, 1987 and never reopened. The fire was determined to have been deliberately set.The hotel sat empty for over a decade, until the city government pushed for its renovation as part of a 1000-room hotel to serve the adjacent America's Center. Cleanup work began on the hotel in November 1999 at a cost of $5 million. The hotel was then renovated from 2000 to 2002 by Kimberly-Clark and Historic Restoration Inc. at a cost of $265 million. At this time, a new addition,was constructed to the east. It was originally to have had 38 floors but was eventually reduced to match the height of the existing hotel. The hotel was renamed the Renaissance St. Louis Grand Hotel.
After being shuttered since 2011, the original Hotel Lennox – once known as St. Louis' tallest hotel – will re-open Sept. 2, the same day that the hotel originally opened in 1929, as The Courtyard by Marriott St. Louis Downtown/Convention Center Hotel.
The newly revitalized hotel will be one of the most unique and historically significant Courtyard-branded hotels in the country. The hotel has undergone a significant renovation, with an investment of over $22M into the property during a 16-month restoration, and will operate as a
Courtyard franchise, owned and managed by affiliates of Maritz Wolff & Co. (dba Lennox Suites, LLC) whose principals are natives of St. Louis and previously owned The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis. The property, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is located at 823-827 Washington Avenue and was originally designed by Preston Bradshaw, one of the most significant St. Louis architects in the 1920s. The hotel was built in the Renaissance Revival style, with terracotta faces and cornices, during the commercial boom of the 1920s, which have been painstakingly preserved by the new owners. The most notable interior features of the original building, which have been fully restored, are the interior green marble wainscoting, wood paneling and ornamental brass elevator doors in the lobby. The multi-million dollar renovations truly blend the building's historical elements with modern day amenities. Hotel Features Include:
