The Angad Arts Hotel, a boutique luxury hotel in St Louis, is set to open in November after a $65 million dollar renovation. The building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is located in the city’s Grand Center Arts District and is aiming to bring an artistic flair to travelers visiting the Missouri city.

It will also boast the very unique feature of allowing guests to select their room based on colors that correlate with different emotions. That means you can pick a green room for rejuvenation, yellow for happiness, red for passion, or blue for tranquility. The bright touches go beyond just the paint on the walls – the color scheme will seep through every element of the rooms.

But more than its colorful new paint job, the hotel boasts an amazing history. It was built back in 1927 as the Missouri Theatre, which would become home to the Radio City Rockettes. While it no longer serves as a theatre, performances and creativity will be an integral part of the hotel.

“On any given evening, a local dance troupe might create a Dirty Dancing performance, unannounced. Or the lobby lights might dim, and a student from the Grand Central Arts Academy across the street might walk in and sing an aria,” said David Miskit, executive managing director, in a statement. The hotel will feature pop-up performances, art installations, and a playroom of musical instruments that guests can play as they wish.
