Diamond Resorts to open property in St. Louis
Diamond Resorts is set top open its first resort in the US city of St. Louis after entering into an agreement with Inner Circle Investments to acquire six floors of the City Place hotel.
Rooms on those floors will be repositioned as luxury apartments, hotel rooms and vacation ownership units, with work expected to be complete in early to mid-2020.
Located across from the famous Gateway Arch, City Place is in a premier location within blocks of the St. Louis’s best-known attractions, including museums, riverboat cruises and the Anheuser-Busch Brewery.
Diamond’s six floors will be repositioned into studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units and feature separate front desk and VIP areas designated exclusively for Diamond’s members, owners and guests.
Michael Flaskey, chief executive officer of Diamond Resorts, said: “We are excited to expand our global footprint into St. Louis and offer another premier property for our members to enjoy.
“St. Louis is a new market for the industry and we are proud that Diamond Resorts will be the only company offering vacation ownership accommodations for the millions of families who explore St. Louis each year.
“In addition to quality rooms and customer service, members and guests can look forward to a line-up of events, including private concerts and meet-and-greets with our Diamond Celebrities.”
St. Louis welcomes more than 26 million visitors every year, including those seeking urban cultural, sporting, musical and culinary experiences.
Diamond Resorts expects the vibrancy of St. Louis to both deliver memorable experiences for members, owners and guests, and generate meaningful new member growth. In addition, City Place is expected to be one of the company’s flagship urban destinations and is scheduled to be available to members for reservation following completion of Diamond’s redesign.
