Angad Arts HotelWhy we love it: An art-centric hotel that’s drenched in color—and personality
- The chance to choose your room by color and emotion
- Interactive artworks throughout the property
- An on-site restaurant from popular chef David Burke
There’s nothing particularly fun about booking a hotel—select your travel dates, your bed size, and maybe your view if you’re getting fancy. At the Angad Arts Hotel, however, choosing your room is an experience. Guests here pick accommodations by color of emotion, helping to set the mood for their stay. From passionate red and tranquil blue to happy yellow and rejuvenating green, the 146 guest rooms—including 38 suites and 25 extended-stay rooms with kitchenettes—are each decorated in a single color, though all feature details like stylish fixtures, unique artwork, and cheeky accessories such as eye-print throw pillows.
Given the creative rooms, it’s fitting that the Angad is located in St. Louis’s Grand Central Arts District. Built in the 1920s as a theater, the property now sits among some of the city’s best museums and galleries, but also functions as a work of art itself. The elevator features an interactive exhibit, while the 12th-floor lounge serves as a showcase for a 360-degree video art experience. There’s even a “playroom” on-site, filled with board games and musical instruments, as well as regular programming, including drawing parties, live musical performances, and more. As for dining, guests can look forward to the Grand Tavern, where chef David Burke puts a whimsical spin on local fare, and the Angad Rainbow Terrace, an indoor-outdoor rooftop lounge with sweeping views, handcrafted cocktails, and more small plates from Chef Burke.
