A Brand new St. Louis casino that will be the main focus of a $500 million casino facility which is scheduled to open on December 19th, 2007. The casino facility, named Lumiere Place is owned by Pinnacle Entertainment Incorporated.

Pinnacle Entertainment, which is based in Las Vegas, Nevada, will own the hotel but it will be operated by the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. It will offer 200 rooms with a "sky deck" on the eight floors which overlooks the rooftop swimming pool with good views of the Gateway Arch.

The hotel will also feature a restaurant named Cielo, a presidential suite that is more than 3,000 square feet, dining area and a day spa. Also a part of Pinnacle's plans, a former Embassy Suites hotel is currently undergoing renovation worth $16 million. The hotel's name will be changed to Hotel Lumiere. Both hotel facilities are scheduled to debut on March 2008, according to spokesperson Mark Bradley.

The underground moving walkways will pass on the Interstate 70, featuring a connection between the casino facility in Laclede's Landing area and near the America's Center convention facility. The underground walkways are also expected to be completed in March. Pinnacle Entertainment is also currently planning to construct a casino complex in St. Louis County but announced just last week that the $375 million project, will be delayed until 2009.
