Lumiere Place St Louis is just one of the St. Louis casinos that can bring
added excitement to a city that is already full of welcome attractions. The Gateway Arch is sure
to secure a spot on your St. Louis itinerary, and a St.
Louis riverboat trip is a
great way to get out on the venerable Mississippi River.
Currently, those looking to add gambling to their St.
Louis vacation plans will find a number of choice spots
where you can throw that hard-earned money down.
In the near future, Pinnacle Entertainment Inc. will introduce
two state-of-the-art casinos that will put St. Louis at
the forefront of Midwest gambling. If you can’t
make it to Vegas, or are looking for a change in atmosphere,
you’ll find it at Lumiere Place, which is the bigger
of Pinnacle’s two projects. In fact, once
the plans were set in motion, Lumiere Place became the
largest of all downtown St. Louis construction projects,
so it’s safe to assume that it’s one heck
of a venue. The Lumiere Place St
Louis casino hotel had hoped to open in the Fall of
2007, but due to various delays, it will now open in December.
Lumiere Place in St Louis is located just to the north of the entertainment district known as Laclede’s Landing, where a bevy of shopping and dining options can be found, not to mention the popular President riverboat casino. Pinnacle has dedicated almost $500 million to its Lumiere Place St Louis casino hotel, which has given the city quite the economic boost. Lumiere Place, in and of itself, will help to revitalize part of downtown St. Louis, but it won’t be all that Pinnacle brings to the table. The company is also planning to join forces with other development firms to further develop the area, promising shiny new residential and retail establishments. It should be quite the total destination, once all is said and done. Once the Lumiere Place casino opens, Pinnacle hopes to have their additional projects completed within 5 years thereafter. Pinnacle’s other St. Louis casino hotel project, River City, will be a more family-oriented destination, while the sexier Lumiere Place will cater to adults.
The Lumiere Place St Louis casino hotel adds a visual appeal to the downtown and riverfront skylines, its exterior inspired by the famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Among its most exciting architectural aspects is the facility’s main tower, which features an unmistakable light feature that helps to make it quite the icon. Lumiere Place in St Louis will offer two separate hotels, one of which is a five-star property that is one of the finer luxury St. Louis hotels. This hotel has a total of 200 amenity-filled rooms, a full-service spa, fine-dining restaurants and a stunning pool and garden that affords guests prime views of the Gateway Arch. Its other hotel will offer 297 renovated suites designed for business travelers or those simply looking for added space. In addition to the fine dining establishments, Lumiere Place in St Louis will also offer plenty of casual dining restaurants, including fast food chains and a 24-hour buffet and grill. If you’re traipsing about town on foot, you can access the Lumiere Place casino by way of the pedestrian connection, which leads to and from other significant downtown buildings.
The Lumiere Place casino hotel covers some 7.3 acres of prime downtown land, the casino itself spread over 75,000 square feet. The state-of-the-art Lumiere Place casino features a couple thousand slot and video poker machines ranging in denominations, meaning you don’t have to bet the farm to have a good time. If you prefer table games, you should find what you’re looking for at one of the over 40 different tables, and poker enthusiasts will appreciate the 12-table Poker Room. Among the bars is a piano bar, where you can relax in sophistication with a cocktail, hopefully enjoying the money you just won. You’ll find more excitement at the casino’s other bars, and nightlife entertainment can be enjoyed as well in the casino lounge. The Lumiere Place casino’s main bar overlooks the main floor and exudes a lively light and crystal feature that mimics a waterfall. Dazzling, is a word that appropriately defines Lumiere Place, and you’ll surely want to check this place out on your next St. Louis vacation.
