The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis Unveils Major Guest Room Transformation

Rooms, Suites and Gathering Spaces Feature Contemporary New Design, Spa-Inspired Serenity

ST. LOUIS, MO. July 24, 2017 - As it celebrates its role as a second home to Midwestern luxury travelers, The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis is heralding the future with a stunningly reimagined new interior.

The transformation can now be seen in all of the hotel’s 299 luxury rooms and suites, where reimagined designs showcase muted color palettes, contemporary geometric shapes, and the tranquil ambience of a contemporary spa retreat.

The remastering takes further inspiration from the serene skies of the American Midwest, as blues, greys, and shades of white and cream add luxury and cross-generational appeal. Enhanced guest room features include sleek furnishings; cool, crisp linens in blue and grey, and subtle accents of leather and chrome.

The hotel’s new design extends to guest room corridors and circulation spaces as well, as soft blue and grey wall and floor coverings contemporize the landmark building’s elegant exterior. Second-floor meeting rooms continue the modern motif, with dimensional fabrics, ergonomic chairs and rich woods reflecting the same sophisticated interiors as seen in the hotel’s exquisite ballroom wing – which underwent a matching transformation just over a year ago.

“We are delighted to share these beautiful new guest rooms with guests, and the early response has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Amanda Joiner, General Manager for The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis. “These recent upgrades even further position the hotel as a luxury oasis for business travelers, families and St. Louis staycationers.”

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.
