3.5 star hotel
Area: Convention Center District
1.29 mi from Kemper Arena
Best Rooms: If a view is important to you, be sure to request a room facing Wyandotte St. overlooking Barney Allis Plaza and the Convention Center. All other rooms face surrounding buildings.
Best Rooms: Even-numbered rooms ending in *10 - *22 facing Baltimore Ave. offer a great view of the neighboring Kansas City Power and Light Building (e.g. 812, 1018, 1122); all other even-numbered rooms offer city views, better from floors 8 - 11, as rooms on floor 13 have smaller windows.
Best Rooms: Rooms ending in *40 - *42, on floors 10 - 17 (e.g. 1140, 1441, 1642), offer the best views of Liberty Memorial. Rooms ending in *44 - *56 on those same floors (e.g. 1045, 1252) also offer lovely views of the downtown area.
