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

History[edit]

Located in downtown St. Louis, Lumière Place opened on December 19, 2007.[1] The resort overlooks the Mississippi River and sits less than one mile (1.6 km) from the Gateway 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 March 2014, Lumière Place hosted a World Series of Poker Circuit Tournament.

In April 2014, Tropicana Entertainment acquired the Lumière Place complex from Pinnacle Entertainment for $260 million.[5]

Facility[edit]

The 75,000-square-foot (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.[6]

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[7] and even the taping of an episode of TLC’s Cake Boss where Buddy Valastro unveiled a 700-pound (320 kg) cake featuring Lumière Place and other St. Louis landmarks.[8]

The resort was designed by Marnell Corrao Associates, the Las Vegas-based architectural firm that also built the Bellagio (hotel and casino).[9]
