Ameristar St. Charles Hotel
Walter P Moore provided structural engineering services for the highly anticipated 25-story, 400-room all-suite hotel that brings state-of-the-art amenities to the St. Charles riverfront. The hotel complements the historical architecture of the area with an impressive turn-of-the-century-style structure that exceeds the scale and scope of any previous project along the Missouri River.
The hotel includes an outstanding selection of first-class in-suite amenities; an impressive indoor/outdoor pool with a distinctive landscaped area; a tranquil and luxurious full-service spa and a new 2,350-space parking garage. Guestroom windows mirror the reflective glow of night lights dancing across the nearby river.
The distinctive design of the hotel and garage exterior was inspired by the architectural characteristics of the preserved buildings of St. Charles’ historic Main Street and the newly-refurbished warehouse buildings of downtown St. Louis’ Loft District. The grand hotel tower was painstakingly detailed to incorporate the time-worn quality of aged brick and decorative ornamental cast moldings indigenous to the historic structures of the area.
