The resort overlooks the Mississippi River and sits less than one mile (1.6 km) from the Gateway Arch. Lumière Place houses two hotels, HoteLumière and the only Missouri hotel to receive the AAA Five Diamond Award, Four Seasons St. Louis.
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.
The resort was designed by Marnell Corrao Associates, the Las Vegas-based architectural firm that also built the Bellagio hotel and casino. To satisfy state law that only allows for gambling on floating platform within a 1000 feet of the Missouri and Mississippi river, the casino floor is actually an eight-foot-thick concrete raft afloat in a basin holding more than 1.5 million gallons of purified water. The architectural design used advanced construction techniques employing continuous concrete poor to achieve a water tight basin on which a “barge” is floated. Visitors to the facility have no indication that the casino floor is technically floating.
Lumiere Place St Louis is just one of the St. Louis casinos that can bring added excitement to a city that is already full of welcome attractions. The 7,000 m2 Lumière Place casino floor features approximately 1,600 slots, 55 tables and a 10-table poker room. The Pulse of St. Louis is electrifying, exciting, winning action. From traditional reels to the latest state-of-the-art video machines to hit the market, Lumière Place captures it all on the casino floor. Get in on the excitement of the casino action. You can try your luck on one of their 55 table games ranging from Baccarat to Blackjack to Craps.
Outside, the complex comprises the low-rise building that encloses the casino gaming floor (and its unseen moat), a 2,000-space parking garage, and a 200-room hotel in the form of a sapphire glass box. The casino greets Laclede’s Landing Historic District – the site of the original village of St. Louis, 224 years old – with a sober facade of brick and stone.
