Featuring an innovative lobby space as well as Courtyard’s latest contemporary room design, the new hotel provides flexibility and choices that allow guests to optimize and elevate their travel experience. Located at 8101 Dale Avenue in The Crossings at Richmond Heights, the 141-room hotel will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned and managed by InterMountain Management, LLC of Monroe, Louisiana.

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Courtyard St. Louis Brentwood is just six minutes from downtown St. Louis and offers guests convenient access to St. Louis Forest Park, the Gateway Arch, the St. Louis Zoo and Busch Stadium – home of the St. Louis Cardinals. The hotel is also located near shopping destinations –The Boulevard and St. Louis Galleria Mall as well as kid-friendly attractions — the St. Louis Science Center and The Magic House.

Courtyard continues to innovate the guest experience to meet the changing needs of its guests. The latest room design offers hybrid zones for working, sleeping, relaxing and getting ready. Indirect lighting and a neutral, tone-on-tone color palette provides an elevated and modernized look and feel during the full guest experience from booking to stay.

“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to business travelers,” said Janis Milham, senior vice president and global brand leader, Classic Select Brands. “Today’s technology has changed how people travel. Our guests want a room that has purpose and flexibility that enables a seamless transition between relaxing and working. Courtyard is designed to offer them a relaxing and functional space to work the way they want to, when they want to.”

The new room design is intuitive and thoughtful, offering flexible yet comfortable spaces that enable technology. Upon arrival, guests can store bags on the “Luggage Drop” and plug personal devices into the “Tech Drop” ledge for seamless technology integration.

Signature furniture and architectural elements replace traditional art in the new guestroom. The “LoungeAround” sofa offers a pop of color and a comfortable area for relaxing or for working. The new design also features a light desk on wheels, allowing guests to work from anywhere in the room.

An upgraded, more spacious layout creates an enhanced bathroom experience including a “Shower Nook,” making amenities accessible without having to leave the shower.

“Our team is excited to share the Courtyard brand with the community and to be a key resource for business and leisure travelers visiting the St. Louis area,” said Matthew McTigue, general manager, Courtyard St. Louis Brentwood. “We are thrilled to invite everyone to explore the property and enjoy all the amenities it offers including our on-site Bistro, luxurious outdoor patio and state-of-the-art fitness center. Our team is ready to provide the highest level of customer service.”

The Courtyard St. Louis Brentwood features the brand’s latest lobby design, where guests can enjoy an open and modern environment outside of their rooms. As an extension to Courtyard’s inviting public spaces, the newly designed Bistro is the epicenter of the lobby, which fosters social connections and collaboration with more flexible and informal seating options. As an ideal casual dining destination, the new Bistro offers guests a wide variety of fresh Classic American menu items with a contemporary twist. In the evening, the Bistro Bar also features an array of cocktails, beer and wine for guests to enjoy at the end of the day. The entire menu was carefully designed to offer a variety of flavorful, fresh items to satisfy every palate from morning to night.

Throughout the hotel, guests can connect with ample electrical outlets. The business library features several computer terminals, along with a printer and separate computer stations dedicated solely to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.
