Angad Arts Hotel Opens in Grand Center
ST. LOUIS, (SLFP.com) - The Angad Arts Hotel (AAH), a colorful new boutique hotel, has opened in St. Louis' Grand Arts District.

The Angad Arts is the first hotel in the world where guests are able to book their luxury accommodations not only by room type, but also the emotion of color: Green - Rejuvenation; Blue - Tranquility; Yellow - Happiness; Red - Passion. Standing as a beacon for St. Louis' exciting new cultural shift, the hotel offers a place for travelers and locals alike to share their thoughts and ideas, creating a vibrant intersection of cultural expression.

Originally constructed as the Missouri Theater Building in 1920 by DeRosa & Pereira, the historic landmark played host to the Missouri Rockets dancers in its early years. The troupe would entertain audiences before film screenings, and became so popular, they took their act on tour. From there, they were discovered in New York by legendary showman, S.L. "Roxy" Rothafel, relocated to the Big Apple, and rebranded to the Radio City Rockettes.

The historical property laid dormant for a number of years before it was purchased by the Lawrence Group in 2013 for $3.2 million from Grand Center Inc.

The lively hotel features 146 artfully designed guest rooms, including 38 suites, 25 extended stay rooms; a whimsical signature restaurant Grand Tavern by David Burke, the first St. Louis eatery by the world class chef; an outdoor rooftop terrace; inspired indoor and outdoor meeting space; stylish staff outfits designed by Reuben Reuel, creator of the womenswear brand Demestik; and convenient access to St. Louis attractions and special events through the hotel's personal concierge services.

Under the direction of Art Saint Louis, the vibrant 146-guest room Angad Arts Hotel will feature a rotating series of exhibitions and events spotlighting the work of numerous St. Louis regional visual artists in the hotel's public spaces, as well as extensive collections of original artworks and reproductions in the hotel's room and suites.

"We're thrilled to be part of such a visionary project," said Art Saint Louis' Executive Director, Chandler Branch. "Angad Arts Hotel will be an outstanding outlet and creative hub for a diverse community of artists and creatives of all kinds. The imagination and whimsy that the developers are pouring into every aspect of the visitor experience is truly astounding."
