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.”

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
