The hotel is owned and managed by EQUIS Hospitality Management, LLC and represents another addition to the growing roster of more than 200 Homewood Suites by Hilton hotels nationwide. "The new hotel's location, five miles from Lambert International Airport, makes our city an ideal market for an upscale, extended-stay hotel like Homewood Suites by Hilton," said James Vavak, General Manager. "Our hotel is designed for guests who stay for five or more nights, but is also perfect for short stays and families who need to feel more at home while they are traveling," James Vavak said. "We are the ideal place for those travelers who are away from home or the office for several days but still need to have a full kitchen, executive business center and complimentary high-speed Internet access." The three-story Homewood Suites by Hilton St. Louis Riverport is conveniently located near many local tourist attractions including shopping within a five mile radius and Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. The newly opened hotel features residential-style studio, one- bedroom and two-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens and spacious sleeping and living areas that are large enough for work, study, entertaining or relaxing. In an effort to help guests be more productive, complimentary high-speed Internet is available in each guest suite, as well as in the Lodge and meeting rooms. In addition, the Hilton Family of Hotels custom-designed its own clock for each guest suite, featuring one of the easiest-to-set alarms. What's more, the new clocks also feature a connection cable for MP3 players and other portable music devices including ipods, an addition Hilton made after research revealed that consumers prefer to maintain their own music lifestyles while on the road.
