The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis has recently updated its rooms and suites, corridors, circulation spaces and meeting rooms. The redesign draws inspiration from the Midwest skies, with a color palette of blues, grays, and shades of cream and white.

The 299 luxury rooms and suites includes sleek furnishings, blue and grey linens, accents of chrome and leather, containing contemporary geometric shapes, channeling the atmosphere of a spa retreat. In addition to the guest rooms, the corridors and circulation spaces include blue and grey wall and floor coverings, making the elegant exterior of the building more contemporary with its interior. The meeting rooms on the second floor house ergonomic chairs, dimensional fabrics, and rich woods that are the same as in the ballroom wing of the hotel, which was redesigned more than a year ago.

“We are delighted to share these beautiful new guest rooms with guests, and the early response has been overwhelmingly positive,” says 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.”

Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino is completing the second phase of its multimillion-dollar renovation, resulting in new guest rooms, an adults-only pool and private outdoor event space.

Formerly known as the Blackstone Hotel, the property will reopen as the Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel in spring 2020. Located in the Blackstone District, the oldest neighborhood in Omaha, Nebraska, the lively area is home to some of the city’s best bars, restaurants and nightlife. Its new name, Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel pays tribute to the original Blackstone Hotel’s Cottonwood Room bar that housed a Cottonwood tree growing from the center of the circular bar.
