Why We Like It:
It has, as the name suggests, a strong emphasis on art and is a veritable showcase for local talent.
Throughout the building, you can admire curated sculpture pieces, paintings, video art, and photographs from local artists, most of which are also available to buy.
Color is also a strong theme at Angad with most of its 146 rooms having an exact equivalent in a different color.
On the understanding that color affects mood, you can choose between green for rejuvenation, yellow for curiosity, red for empowerment, and blue for freedom.
Its location right in the heart of St. Louis’ Grand Center Arts District is fitting and here you are within walking distance of some of the city’s best restaurants, cafes, bars, theaters, and galleries.
All 146 rooms have a different single color scheme – red, blue, green, and yellow. You don’t get to choose your room before booking, but only after contacting the hotel once you get the confirmation e-mail or at your check-in.
The rooms range from entry-level singles to 410 square feet rooms with two queen size beds to sleep four, 505 square feet suites which have a double bedroom, a separate lounge area, and a kitchenette, and then their top-of-the-range, 1,400 square feet, Double King Suites which have two double bedrooms with king size beds, and a lounge area.

Be prepared for some low-level shock on getting acquainted with your room for the first time: except for the floors they are almost entirely monochrome.
The idea is that such an immersion in a specific color can encourage certain moods. In this case that is either red for empowerment, blue for freedom, yellow for curiosity, or green for rejuvenation.

Food & Facilities:
There are two food venues onsite the most prominent being the Commonwealth Restaurant which does a fresh take on modern European cuisine with a seasonal menu and locally sourced ingredients.
It hosts the breakfast which has some novel takes on a la carte standards – barbecue beef brisket benedict and buttermilk pancakes for example, as well as hearty English-type fry-ups.
The Commonwealth can also offer a private dining hall throughout the day for up to ten people.
The other venue is their, by this stage very popular in its own right, rooftop Arts Bar. It is a slick, stylish place with outdoor seating, 360 views of St. Louis, fantastic cocktails, and a limited but quality food menu comprising mainly of snacks and platters.
The Angad can sometimes feel more akin to an art gallery offering accommodation than vice versa. Its extensive art exhibits are rotated twice yearly (May and November) and showcase a mixture of up-and-coming and more established artists in the St. Louis area.
Its location, right in the heart of St. Louis’ Central Arts District is fitting and here you are within walking distance of some of the city’s best restaurants, cafes, bars, and galleries.

“This is probably one of the coolest places I’ve stayed in. You can choose the color of your room and when you walk in it’s a literal art museum. I would definitely stay here again. There aren’t many like it…..”
