Lumière Place is a St. Louis, Missouri casino and hotel resort owned and operated by Tropicana Entertainment.

History[edit]

Located in historic downtown St. Louis, Lumière Place opened on December 19, 2007.[1] The resort overlooks the Mississippi River and sits less than one mile from the St. Louis Arch and is within walking distance to the Edward Jones Dome and Busch Stadium.[2] Lumière Place houses two hotels, HoteLumière and the only Missouri hotel to receive the AAA Five Diamond Award, Four Seasons St. Louis.[3]

Lumière Place won the Readers' Choice award for "Best Casino" in the 2013 Riverfront Times Best of St. Louis awards.[4]

In April 2014, Tropicana Entertainment Inc. (“Tropicana”) acquired Lumière Place Casino, HoteLumière, and the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis (“Lumière”) from Pinnacle Entertainment for a purchase price of $260 million.

With the acquisition, Lumière Place becomes the eighth casino property in Tropicana’s portfolio, joining the company’s gaming resorts in Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey and Aruba. With its prime downtown location, Lumière becomes Tropicana’s second-largest casino property, after its flagship Tropicana Atlantic City Casino and Resort. The property will remain under the Lumière Place brand.

Tropicana is a publicly traded company that, through its subsidiaries, owns and operates eight casinos and resorts in Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey Aruba and now Missouri. The company is based in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In March 2014, Lumière Place hosted a World Series of Poker Circuit Tournament.

Facility[edit]

The 75,000 square feet (7,000 m2) Lumière Place casino floor features approximately 1,800 slots, 55 tables and a 13-table poker room.

HoteLumière has 294 all-suite guest rooms and the 19 story Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis has 200 rooms, including 14 suites.[5]

The property also features the 453 seat Lumière Theatre for live entertainment. Since its debut in 2008, Lumière Theatre has played host to the Go-Go’s, Joan Rivers, Thunder from Down Under, Louie Anderson, John Witherspoon, Chippendales, Brandy, Eddie Money, Chrisette Michele, WBF Championship Boxing, mixed martial arts fights [6] and even the taping of an episode of TLC’s “Cake Boss” where Buddy Valastro unveiled a 700-pound cake featuring Lumière Place and other St. Louis landmarks.[7]

Restaurants[edit]

Lumière Place has six restaurants:

  • Stadium Sports Bar and Grill
  • The Kitchen Buffet and Bistro
  • Asia
  • Peet's Coffee and Tea
  • The Diner
  • Cielo at the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis

The resort was designed by Marnell Corrao Associates, the Las Vegas-based architectural firm that also built the Bellagio (hotel and casino).[8]
