Maverick adds The Host Hotel STL to portfolio

Maverick Hotels and Restaurants is now managing The Last Hotel STL, located in St. Louis. The Last Hotel STL is steeped in history and architectural richness and embodies the preservation, restoration and reinvention of the International Shoe Company. Originally opened in 1909, the iconic building has elaborate stone carvings, ornate metalwork and terrazzo floors all in the Neoclassical and Art Deco styles.

Located in a former shoe factory, this chic hotel has an Art Deco vibe and features stylish mid-century furnishings. The hotel’s rooms range in size from 433 to 457 square feet and include two queen-sized beds, luxury boutique linens, a work desk, power port box, 55-inch HD television, in-room minibar, original barrel ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Suites feature a king-size bed with all the same amenities but also designer CO Bigelow amenities, an oversized bathroom and a custom subway tiled walk-in shower.

Property features include an upscale restaurant and a snack shop, as well as a rooftop with an adults-only pool and a bar. There's also a fitness center and meeting and event space. Breakfast and valet parking are also available.

“Maverick is pleased to enter the St. Louis market with the addition of this one-of-a-kind hotel to our growing and increasingly diverse portfolio,” Maverick founder and CEO Robert Habeeb said in a statement. “It’s an exciting property with a storied history; one we look forward to continuing to write.”
