The 88-room Hotel Indigo St. Louis has opened its doors. Chattanooga, Tennessee-based ViaNova Development developed the hotel, which began in 2016. The hotel is managed by Chesapeake Hospitality.
The hotel’s Art Deco design is complemented by the city’s history, with nods to the Federal Reserve, which first opened in the area in 1914. Additionally, the design pays homage to Gateway Arch architect Eero Saarinen and elephants. That nod to elephants is because one was led across the Eads Bridge in 1874 to prove the structure was safe.
The hotel includes 2,084 sq. ft. of meeting space. The Switchlist restaurant is named after the historical site on which the hotel was built. The rooftop Penthouse Bar is inspired by Eero Saarinen.
