Whether traveling alone or with family, downtown Kansas City’s newest 15-suite, 144-room luxury hotel, Hotel Kansas City, will deliver an experience that embodies the Midwest’s historic character while introducing guests to the best in hospitality and culinary talents. Built in 1922, this Gothic Revival-style building is on the National Register of Historic Places and was formerly home to the Kansas City Club. Many of the architectural elements, such as stained glass and walnut accents, are still intact today.
Ideally located, hotel guests are within walking distance to several theaters, music, and entertainment venues including the newly named T-Mobile Center and the multi-venue KC Power & Light District. If you’d prefer not to drive during your stay, hop on the new KC Streetcar and head north to the River Market or head south to visit Union Station and Crown Center. Enjoy the shops and restaurants along the way as well.
Hotel Kansas City has a reimagined design that blends the City’s rich history while infusing a nuanced, progressive spirit of its own. Youthful yet sophisticated, you’ll find locals dropping by for coffee and pastries in the two-story grand lobby that is as elegant as it is powerful. From the marble floors and arched entryways to the hand-carved oak paneling and a magnificent 2,500-pound chandelier, guests are welcomed with an unmistakable hello. Other amenities include an onsite baker, free wi-fi, in room robes, and a 15th story private outdoor balcony that provides unparalleled views of the City. Patrons will find touches of Kansas City throughout as they enjoy locally sourced art, coffee, beer, whiskey, and seasonal menu items.
Continuing to echo the hotel’s inventive take on Kansas City nostalgia, guests can enjoy culinary masterpieces from Midwest-inspired restaurant, The Town Company, and its cellar saloon, El Gold (opening January 2021). Developed by renowned Kansas City native chef Patrick Ryan and helmed by nationally known executive chef Johnny Leach, both concepts will curate their own, distinct narratives of the historic City’s culinary traditions and leave guests with a cultured experience to remember.
Another nod to the hotel’s communal culture is its collection of unique event spaces that span more than 20,000 sq. ft., including a 6,000 sq. ft. indoor/outdoor private event space that overlooks the city. From historic and traditional to modern and unconventional, each room will be ideal for various festivities.
