    Regency Management Company, LLC would like to announce that the hotel that was once the Harley Hotel has undergone the largest renovation in the hotel’s 36-year history. The $10 million transformation to the new Holiday Inn Airport West in Earth City by the new ownership group was necessary to meet the demands of business meetings and travelers in the St. Louis airport market. “We are excited that this renovation is now complete and we look forward to impressing our guests with an enhanced overall experience,” said Mark Stevens, General Manager of the Holiday Inn Airport West. “This transformation has created excellent meeting and convention space in St. Louis and a relaxing place for our loyal business travelers to rest and relax. In addition, our on-site dining meets the needs of our guests and is a center point for members of the Earth City business park to network.”

    The completely new canopy provides a warm entrance with plenty of room for guests to drop luggage before parking vehicles in the expansive parking lot. The hotel features 155 newly renovated guestrooms. Each and every guestroom was redone with a new bathroom and new case goods, including new carpet, new top of the line Simmons mattresses, and new 37” Philips flat screen televisions. During the renovation, the hotel also added five one-bedroom Suites. The eighth floor is designated as an executive floor and has its own private club lounge. All the guestrooms on the eighth floor are executive king rooms. The lobby also underwent significant changes for an impressive new look. Changes include a new front desk and concierge desk. The feature artwork across the front desk is an 8 foot x 8 foot abstract rendering of the St. Louis skyline. Along with the front desk, the lobby features a new look to the elevator corridor, new furniture, and all new flooring. Plush seating in the lobby allows for guests to network or relax. Another key feature to the lobby renovation is a new business center adjacent to the lobby. The new fitness center features state of the art equipment and flat screen televisions. The large indoor swimming pool was completely renovated with new tile work, a new roof and a non-slip grip deck.

    “Since we were closed throughout the renovation, we look forward to welcoming back former guests and inviting new customers to experience the brand new Holiday Inn Airport West,” said Morey Weiss, Director of Sales. “Our guests expect first class service and with these exciting renovations, we will strive to meet and exceed theirexpectations.”

    On-Site Dining: Malone’s Grill & Pub

    The lively restaurant allows guests to experience a wide array of food and beverage options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. “The Malone’s franchise is an institution in St. Louis and the Holiday Inn Airport West is proud to offer it as a
    convenient choice for our guests and members of the Earth City business community,” said Bakir Avdagic, Food and Beverage Director of the Holiday Inn Airport West. The Holiday Inn Airport West also offers banquet and catering facilities.
