Marriott St. Louis Grand opens with new interiors by Stonehill & Taylor

Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel reopened at 800 Washington Ave. after completing a $30-million renovation and brand change. The renovations included a new greatroom and pantry, technology upgrades, additional meeting spaces, new guestrooms, an updated concierge lounge, the opening of Zenia Bar & Grille and an upgraded fitness center.

Michael Suomi, principal and VP of design at Stonehill & Taylor, managed the interior design for the property. The interior design team, which also involved senior associate Sherry Dennis and senior designer Kerrie Murphy, was inspired by the city of St. Louis.

The property kept the Crystal and Statler ballrooms of the original 1917 Statler Hotel. The renovated Marriott St. Louis Grand also has three new meeting areas, making a grand total of 36 meeting rooms for more than 65,000 square feet.
