TitleRooms With a View
AbstractArticle explores staying at the swankiest hotels in Kansas City for a night. Mentions include InterContinental Kansas City's 2,000-square-foot presidential suite for $5,000 a night. The Westin Crown Center has a $1,200-a-night presidential and state suite with a view of Crown Center. With these rooms come "signature bedding, arched ceilings, multiple flatscreen TVs, palatial-size living rooms, and The Wall Street Journal. They've got pillow-thick duvets and artwork chosen by design firms specifically for that room. Many come with access to personal concierges, fridges stocked with Perrier and specialized food and beverage services. High-end fitness centers, restaurants and pools are de rigueur."
NotesOf the approximately 26,500 hotel rooms in the five-county area, just a dozen or so carry price tags of $500 and up. The Intercontinental Kansas City at the Plaza opened in 1972 as the Alameda Plaza and was later called the Ritz-Carlton and the Fairmont-Kansas City at the Plaza.
