Silverwest Hotels Plans Summer 2020 Opening of Le Meridien St. Louis Clayton

USA, St. Louis, Missouri. February 17, 2020

Silverwest Hotels announces plans today for Le Meridien St. Louis Clayton, a new upscale hotel destination for creative and culturally-minded travelers and locals alike in downtown Clayton, Missouri, just outside of St. Louis. Located at the corner of Bonhomme Ave. and Bemiston Street (7730 Bonhomme Ave, St. Louis, MO 63105), the 268-room hotel will open this summer after a multi-million dollar, full-scale transformation. Silverwest Hotels acquired the property over 18 months ago, and the new Marriott brand mark showcases the extensive investment into restoring the property as a destination for St. Louis.

With a new rooftop pool, state-of-the-art fitness center with panoramic views of downtown St. Louis and 17,000 square feet of event space, Le Meridien St. Louis Clayton will blend St. Louis' rich European heritage with a chic, sophisticated design. Located in the heart of the Clayton Business District, the hotel is within walking distance of top restaurants as well as a short drive or jog to St. Louis' award-winning Forest Park. Le Meridien St. Louis Clayton has a passion to embrace St. Louis' local culture, specifically in regards to the arts and cuisine. The hotel will also have a new restaurant, cocktail bar as well as coffee bar.

Edward Mace, President/CEO of Silverwest Hotels said, "This is our first project in St. Louis, and our investment to transform this hotel will provide a new gathering place for the Clayton community and beyond. We are proud to have esteemed partners for this project. From the design by globally-recognized firm HOK to the elite experience in hotel management from Crescent Hotels & Resorts, we feel that Le Meridian St. Louis Clayton will offer a unique destination for both business and leisure travelers to St. Louis."

Global design firm HOK is leading the overall design of Le Meridien St. Louis Clayton and will bring an original, refined and forward-looking style to the property. Denver-based Silverwest Hotels purchased the property in 2018, and Crescent Hotels & Resorts will manage the Le Meridien St. Louis Clayton.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
