Koplar Properties opens new 192 room hotel in CWE


St. Louis’ newest hotel is open for business!

The seven-story AC Hotel St. Louis Central West End is located at 215 York Ave and features 192-rooms. The entire project was built from the ground up by St. Louis’ Koplar Properties.

President of Koplar Properties Sam Koplar says “This is the very site where my grandfather started KPLR-TV in 1959, so it is so special to be involved in a new chapter of the story of the CWE’s continuing resurgence.”

The 94,300 square-foot hotel features a state-of-the-art fitness center, small meeting and event space, and curated food and beverage program with inspiration from the hotel’s Spanish and European roots at the AC Kitchen and AC Lounge.  This is the first AC Hotel to enter the St. Louis market.

St. Louis born artist John O’ Hara was commissioned for a signature piece featured in the AC Kitchen and dining area of the hotel. O’Hara is a self-taught artist known for his abstract decorative art. His work is included in public and private collections around the world, including famed Jewish designer Michael Kors’ showrooms in Milan, Paris, London and New York.
