From Hotel Management:  Loews Hotels & Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Loews Corporation, revealed plans to build its first ever St. Louis hotel, which will be part of Ballpark Village’s $260-million expansion project. Ballpark Village, developed by the St. Louis Cardinals and The Cordish Companies, is a mixed-use dining and entertainment district adjacent to Busch Stadium. The hotel will debut as Live! by Loews – St. Louis, Mo., a partnership between Loews Hotels & Co., The Cordish Companies and the St. Louis Cardinals.

“Expanding the Live! by Loews name in St. Louis, with partners like The Cordish Companies,  the DeWitt  family and the St. Louis Cardinals, allows Loews the opportunity to add a unique and immersive hotel into our portfolio,” Jonathan M. Tisch, chairman & CEO, Loews Hotels & Co., said in a statement. “Cardinals fans are some of the most loyal and best in Major League Baseball, and we look forward to having a hotel in the epicenter of the already successful Ballpark Village.”

The $65-million hotel will bring an upscale hospitality experience to downtown St. Louis. Located directly across from Busch Stadium at the intersection of Clark and 8th Streets, Live! by Loews – St. Louis, Mo., will be designed for sports fans, families and visitors, as well as meetings and special events. The eight-story hotel tower is part of a plan to complete a full build-out of Clark Street. “We are thrilled to partner with Loews Hotels & Co. on their first St. Louis hotel,” Bill DeWitt III, president of the St. Louis Cardinals, said in a statement. “Live! by Loews – St. Louis, Mo., will be an incredible anchor for Ballpark Village and a tremendous step forward in fulfilling our vision of creating a world-class mixed-use destination next to Busch Stadium.”

Designed by HKS Architects Hospitality Studio, the exterior architecture and interior design will be influenced by local St. Louis character, including inspiration used for Busch Stadium.
