The Sunset Tower hotel rooms at Hollywood Casino St. Louis will soon have a fresh new look as it is currently undergoing a $7.3 million renovation, which is expected to be completed by the end of June, according to the casino’s website.
The renovation project that began late last month of the Sunset Tower’s 273 hotel rooms includes new furniture, light fixtures, wall coverings, artworks, and window treatments, as well as walk-in showers and wall-mounted flat screen TVs. The general contractor is Chesterfield-based AJ Brown Inc. and the designer, Yeager Architecture of Overland Park, Kansas, as reported by the St. Louis Business Journal.
Part of a larger $11.3 million upgrade complete with a new poker room, the Missouri property’s 211-room Rodeo Tower debuted a $4.5 million renovation in September.
The property’s vice president and general manager, Lydia Mason, said in a statement, “The improvement of our second hotel tower is just one more step in elevating our non-gaming offerings,” Mason added, “Enhancing our hotel experience follows the significant investments we’ve made to improve and expand our food offerings over the past two years,” according to the news agency.
