Midas Hospitality – a leading hotel development, management and investment firm – recently opened the St. Louis region’s first Aloft hotel in the heart of the 200-acre Cortex Innovation Community.

The “different by design” Aloft hotel by Marriott is located at 4245 Duncan Ave. and offers 129 tech-forward rooms with two meeting rooms and amenities that include an on-site fitness center, heated indoor pool, and the W XYZ®bar with outdoor seating overlooking the Cortex Commons open to the public. Urban-inspired design, accessible technology, and innovative programming centering on music, food and beverage make the Aloft unique. This is complemented by an amazing team including Katie O’Connor as General Manager of the property, with Robyn Niedringhaus leading the area sales team and efforts.

The five-story Aloft hotel caters to today’s modern traveler who craves jet-setting style and a vibrant social scene at an affordable price. It is conveniently located near several offices including Aon, Boeing, Microsoft and Square. It is minutes away from the Midtown Arts district, The Grove, Forest Park, BJC Medical Center, Saint Louis University, Washington University, Harris Stowe State University and the St. Louis Zoo. And it offers ease of alternative transportation with access to the Great River Greenway and the Cortex Metrolink station.

This is the twelfth hotel Midas Hospitality will manage in the greater St. Louis region, bringing its total hotel count to 40 across 11 Midwest and Southern states. Midas Hospitality and the Aloft brand share Cortex’s commitment to fostering an inclusive, equitable, and dynamic community where everyone is welcome.
