The Lavender Suite


The Lavender Suite is a tribute to the elegance of the Gilded age. This three-room suite, composed of a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom recreates the fabulous era when beer barons slept here. It takes its name from Lillian Handlan Lemp, known in St. Louis society as "The Lavender Lady". In imitation of the Carnia of Russia, Mrs. Lemp dressed exclusively in lavender. This suite boasts two ornate mantles (one in the sitting room and the other in the bathroom) copper & brass chandeliers and hand-painted wall detailing. The huge private bathroom contains fixtures of Italian marble and a white granite shower stall with brass piping.
