A new AC Hotel by Marriott in Clayton is underway. Part of Clayton’s latest $100-million additions, this development project will also include residential condos and a glass and steel tower to bring brand-new businesses to what commercial developers refer to as: the economic hub of St. Louis.
This AC Hotel is to include a restaurant, rooftop bar, retail space, 400-car parking garage, and 300-person event space. The hotel building, located on the former Clayton Police Department headquarters lot, vacant since 2011, will include 11 stories with 207 hotel rooms once completed.
Several small businesses, such as the popular newsstand and convenience store World News on Clayton, have vacated the premises for the development. The new Clayton hotel is projected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2023.
