Historic Lennox Hotel to RE-Open As Courtyard by Marriott
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), July 29, 2015 - After being shuttered since 2011, the original Hotel Lennox will re-open Sept. 2, 2015 the same day that the hotel originally opened in 1929, as The Courtyard by Marriott St. Louis Downtown/Convention Center Hotel.

The newly revitalized hotel will be one of the most unique and historically significant Courtyard-branded hotels in the country. The building's eastern face features a massive tromp l'oiel painting by Evergreene Painting Studios.

The hotel has undergone a major renovation, with an investment of $22M into the property and will operate as a Courtyard franchise, owned and managed Maritz Wolff & Co. whose principals are St. Louis natives and previously owned The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis.

This National Register of Historic Places property was originally designed by Preston Bradshaw, one of the most significant St. Louis architects in the 1920s. The hotel was built in the Renaissance Revival style and the most notable (and fully restored) interior features of the original building include green marble wainscoting, wood paneling and ornamental brass elevator lobby doors. The renovations blend the building's historical elements with modern day amenities offering:

  • 165 suites converted to extra large guest rooms with new furnishings designed by St. Louis' Lawrence Group
  • Wet bars, security safes, oversized refrigerators and 55" HD SMART TVs with the most current industry entertainment package
  • Mid-century modern furnishings throughout including pieces inspired by Eames and Saarinen
  • Commissioned artwork from well-known local artists
  • Comfortable guest bathrooms featuring modern back lit mirrors and updated Spiekman shower heads
  • State-of-the-art business center, 24/7 Market, Bistro and Starbucks coffee
  • Fitness center featuring Life Fitness equipment
  • 1,100 square feet of meeting space
  • Home theater and library in open lobby
Located within walking distance to numerous St. Louis' leading business, 40+ restaurants, and major sports and entertainment venues, the hotel is the only one physically connected to the Convention Center. "The Hotel Lennox had some amazing architectural elements and a rich history that make the building truly unique and original; today it will offer downtown visitors an intimate boutique hotel option, with only eight rooms per floor - a dramatically different experience than one would find at most massive convention hotels. We are thrilled to be a part of revitalizing downtown St. Louis and strengthening its position in the business and tourism arenas," says Patrick Lowery, Principal, Maritz Wolff & Co.

Enterprise Claimed Top Three Spots for Car Rental in the 2015 Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), July 23, 2015 - Enterprise Holdings - which owns and operates the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands - claimed the top three spots for car rental in the 2015 Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards.

The National Car Rental brand ranked No. 1 in the "Car Rental Agencies" category, followed by the Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Alamo Rent A Car brands, respectively.

The World's Best Awards showcase the destinations, companies and brands that define the very best in travel as voted by Travel + Leisure readers. The car rental agency rankings are based on how readers rate the various brands on five characteristics: vehicle selection, vehicle availability, car rental location, service and value.

"Listening to consumer feedback is the best way - really, the only way - to build trust and confidence for the long term," said Pat Farrell, chief marketing and communications officer at Enterprise Holdings, in a recent CNBC article. "That's why our customer-focused strategy continues to pay off. It sets the bar high and strengthens all three of our brands in one of the most competitive spaces out there: the global car rental industry."

As part of its commitment to exceeding customer expectations, Enterprise Holdings' fleet is among the car rental industry's newest and provides late-model, well-maintained vehicles with an average odometer reading of less than 16,000 miles and an age of eight months.

In addition, Enterprise, National and Alamo were the highest-ranked car rental brands in the J.D. Power 2014 North American Rental Car Satisfaction StudySM. The Enterprise brand received the highest score for the ninth time in the past eleven years. National ranked second in the annual study, followed by Alamo (tied for third) - with all three brands once again finishing above the industry average.
