St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 10, 2008
Officials of Davidson Hotel Company (DHC), one of the nation's largest hotel management companies, has re-launched the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel as the city's premier meeting facility following the completion of a $7 million renovation program. Davidson has managed the property since June, 2006.
Highlights of the major upgrade to the 393-room property are the 37,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art conference and meeting space and elegant redesign of its signature twelfth-floor ballrooms. The hotel can accommodate groups ranging from 12 to 1,200.
"This hotel was originally designed as an avant-garde addition to the St. Louis cityscape," said Bill Fontes, hotel general manager. "However, somehow it lost its identity over the years. This renovation totally restores the property as the city's market leader in meeting and convention space, in addition to providing St. Louis with its most elegant ballrooms. We're re-launching with the kind of sophisticated, multi-purpose facilities that will create memorable meetings and social events, as well as provide first-class accommodations for both business and leisure travelers."
The $7 million renovation includes state-of-the-art technology and sound systems in each of the 32 flexible St. Louis, Missouri meeting rooms, in addition to new carpeting, wall coverings and furniture. The property's 11 boardrooms, which accommodate up to 12 people, have been upgraded with contemporary boardroom tables and ergonomic chairs. The renovations also include a refurbished fitness center with $100,000 of new equipment and a refinished indoor/outdoor pool.
The crown jewel of the upgrade is the hotel's twelfth floor. The Renaissance and Penthouse ballrooms, which overlook the runways of Lambert International Airport and can accommodate between 300 and 400 people, have been renovated to host the city's finest business and social events and celebrations.
Guest room accommodations were upgraded to include Renaissance's signature pillow-top mattresses, stylish work and seating areas, multiple phone lines and high-speed internet access. The renovation was finalized with a complete refreshing of the hotel's lobby and dining facilities.
The T-Bone Trattoria, the property's on-site Italian steakhouse, is still offering St. Louis's best steak dishes and the property's catering services feature top-of-the-line menu and presentation options for events and conferences.
The Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel is located immediately off Interstate 70, five minutes to St. Louis Lambert International Airport and minutes from downtown. It is easily accessible to the famed St. Louis Gateway Arch, the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, the St. Louis Science Center and the Mississippi riverfront. Steaming Starbucks lattes are available in the lobby and an evening turndown service are all part of a first-class executive experience, in addition to a complimentary shuttle to Lambert International Airport.
So, discover the brand new Renaissance St. Louis Hotel Airport and marvel at the extraordinary transformation.
