St. Louis, MO
Lawrence Group partnered with Saint Louis University to design and develop Hotel Ignacio and create a vibrant mix of arts, entertainment, culinary, and institutional destinations. Designed as a chic urban boutique hotel, Ignacio offers 49 guest rooms and two exceptional suites designed around the themes of Fine Art, Performing Arts, Architecture and Music. No detail has been overlooked in the design including a dramatic 6’ x 8’ framed photograph turned headboard, custom-designed modern furniture in each guest room, miniature TVs embedded in the vanity mirrors, fireplaces in the suites, and door and cabinet hardware designed especially to reinforce the theme of the room.
Designed to modern aesthetic, the building offers a unique visitor experience and provides Grand Center a truly unique hotel experience and has received national recognition, including:

Key to the success of this development was the vision and complete branding to create a dynamic one of a kind guest experience.
