New Restaurant and Bar Concept Arrives at the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel

Named after the Architect of the Gateway Arch, Eero's Reflects St. Louis Culture Both On and Off the Plate

ST. LOUIS, MO. July 20, 2017 - To get an authentic experience of St. Louis, travelers only have to arrive at the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel. Here, the city’s history and traditions infuse everything, from the recently renovated event space to the hotel’s community engagement. The most tantalizing example, however, may just be its newest restaurant: Eero’s, which specializes in contemporary American cuisine with a decidedly Midwestern twist.

Formerly known as Norah’s Crafted Food & Spirits, Eero’s owes its new nomenclature to Eero Saarinen, the early 20th-century Finnish-American architect. Saarinen was the visionary behind St. Louis’ Gateway Arch as well as other notable structures like the Washington Dulles International Airport.

As a name, Eero’s is particularly apt: The design of this restaurant near the St. Louis Airport incorporates nods to the city’s biggest traditions, including the soulfulness of the Blues, the camaraderie of the regional breweries and the innovation of the aerospace industry.

As a result, guests find themselves engaged with the restaurant before they even look at a menu. This is a place that invites you to pull up a seat and strike up a conversation. It’s the kind of place where you can make new friends or reconnect with old ones, learn something new and soak up that legendary Midwestern friendliness.

Of course, visitors may need to take a break from socializing once the food arrives. Further distinguishing itself among restaurants near Lambert Airport, Eero’s showcases local ingredients within its often hearty and always savory dishes. Guests can sit down to a St. Louis pork steak or crawfish au gratin if they crave stick-to-your-ribs fare. Or they can try a roasted-beet kale salad if they’re in the mood for something lighter. Whatever one orders, each dish offers a taste of the area’s culinary traditions – and ingredients – that leaves everyone hungry for more.

Complementing the menu is a selection of indulgent desserts (think salted-caramel bread pudding) as well as locally sourced craft beers that are available on tap. Breweries like 2nd Shift Brewing, Broadway Brewery, 4 Hands Brewing and others enjoy pride of place on the menu.

Guests can also order a flight of beers for the sort of edification that pairs well with dinner, or they can opt for something stronger: Eero’s offers a wide range of regional whiskeys. Also on the menu is specialty coffee by the St. Louis company, Kaldi’s, and an international wine list.

True to its Midwestern sensibilities, Eero’s doesn’t just stop at a mouthwatering menu. It also creates a sense of place through curated events. Guests can try one of the daily punch rituals made with local spirits, grab a table during one of the weekly performances by local musicians or drop in during a monthly meet-and-greet with the local art community. Like its menu and ambience, the events at Eero’s invite visitors to sit back and simply enjoy.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
