Now Open: The Pennywell St. Louis Downtown, a Hilton Hotel

The Pennywell St. Louis Downtown, a Hilton Hotel has opened in a late-19th-century bank. The newly renovated property developed by Rockbridge has purposeful amenities tailored to the modern business and leisure travelers’ needs. 

The former Merchants-Laclede National Bank, now home to The Pennywell, originated in 1885. The property’s 195 classically influenced guestrooms welcome travelers with modern amenities and pops of color. Pet-friendly accommodations allow for guests to bring the whole family along for their stay. Guests will have access to a fitness center, contemporary co-working spaces, lobby lounge and concierge services. The property is also home to The Pennydrop Bar + Kitchen, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with a focus on sharable plates. The menu lends itself to group gatherings and team meals, while a curated “Banker’s Hour” menu offers a selection of rotating whiskey cocktails, beer and wine specials.

The Pennywell offers a total of 5,113 square feet of event space, and is located near America’s Center Convention Complex. Nearby attractions include the Gateway Arch, Busch Stadium and several spots to shop, dine and explore.

Deal: As an inaugural offer, guests can book “The Penny Package,” a quintessential St. Louis experience inspired by the building’s history. The package includes signature Pennywell chocolate coins and $50 credit to be redeemed at Pennydrop Bar + Kitchen.
