Millenium Hotel closing its doors next week

KTRS, St. Louis - The Millennium Hotel in downtown St. Louis has just one week left before it closes its doors.

 

Management says the hotel would need $80 million in upgrades to keep the hotel open, but no investors stepped up with the money. City officials say Millenium's owners will maintain water and utilities while the city determines the future of the building--there are currently no plans to tear it down.

 

80 employees will lose their jobs when the hotel closes in one week. The Millenium was once the largest hotel in St. Louis, but only 164 rooms remain in service.

The St. Louis Business Journal reports the Legends Country Club in Eureka is closing. Options to sell the Eureka club for $1.7 million or go semi-private already had been exhausted.

The paper spoke with Legends owner, Patricia Natoli, who inherited the club from her late father, Carmelo. She tells the Business Journal the family had already eliminated initiation fees, slashed dues and offered a summer special last year to drum up seasonal membership at the club which apparently consistently operated at a loss.
