    The Fontaine
    Kansas City, MO
    #1 in Best Hotels in Kansas City
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1304 reviewsTripAdvisor (1304)
    Free WiFi

    The Fontaine sits just a stone's throw away from Kansas City's Country Club Plaza, which boasts several stores and dining spots. Plus, the property is conveniently located about 5 miles south of the Power & Light District and about a mile west of the University of Missouri-Kansas City. In addition to plenty of shopping options nearby, guests can easily access two parks, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Sprint Center and LEGOLAND Discovery Center (all within a 5-mile radius of the hotel). If you're looking for on-site entertainment, The Fontaine features a rooftop pool and restaurant, Parker, which serves American fare. For drinks, there's The Bar at Parker and the Solarium Lounge, the latter of which serves drinks Thursdays from 8-11 p.m. for Prohibition Nights. Each of The Fontaine's 132 guest rooms is appointed with a flat-screen TV, Egyptian cotton linens and a rainfall shower. Recent guests commend The Fontaine's modern, stylish design, and the hotel's friendly customer service. The Fontaine appeals to travelers looking to shop at Country Club Plaza, and those seeking a quiet retreat while doing business in Kansas City. Visitors lookings for a location with numerous amenities for children may want to look elsewhere.

    #2 in Best Hotels in Kansas City
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 527 reviewsTripAdvisor (527)
    Free WiFi

    The Raphael Hotel, Autograph Collection
    Kansas City, MO
    #3 in Best Hotels in Kansas City
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1037 reviewsTripAdvisor (1037)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    The Raphael Hotel, Autograph Collection earns praise for its affordability, as well as its luxury. The hotel's location just steps from Country Club Plaza is another feather in its cap, according to recent guests. The Raphael's 126 accommodations fit neatly into a converted brick apartment building, which was built in the 1920s. Past visitors said the hotel's charming atmosphere and convenient perch in Kansas City, Missouri, are reason alone to return. The upscale American cuisine at Chaz on the Plaza also comes highly rated, and it can be enjoyed either at a restaurant table or in the comforts of your private room (with 24-hour room service). Staying in your digs will be perfect for enjoying amenities like 300-thread-count sheets, a minifridge and complimentary wireless internet access. (Keep in mind that the accommodations are relatively small.) Because the Raphael is a part of the Marriott brand, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn or apply accumulated points here for additional stay benefits.

    Hotel Phillips Kansas City Curio Collection by Hilton
    Kansas City, MO
    #5 in Best Hotels in Kansas City
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 605 reviewsTripAdvisor (605)
    Free WiFi

    If you're looking for a boutique hotel with a central downtown location, the Hotel Phillips in the Power & Light District might be just the choice for you. Guests enjoy the art deco decor and praise the staff members, describing them as both friendly and helpful. Spacious rooms include European-style beds, flat-screen televisions and complimentary Wi-Fi access. And since this hotel is pet-friendly, you don't have to leave the pup behind when you head out on your Kansas City trip. The on-site restaurant Tavernonna Italian Kitchen serves classic Italian cuisine daily. The hotel is also home to a coffee shop and a contemporary speakeasy. And bucks spent on-site can go even further, because Hotel Phillips is part of the Hilton Honors program.

    Hilton President Kansas City
    Kansas City, MO
    #6 in Best Hotels in Kansas City
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1284 reviewsTripAdvisor (1284)
    Free WiFi

    If you're looking for elegance and proximity to the city's top sites, the Hilton President Kansas City might be a good choice for you. The 200-plus guest rooms offer seclusion even though the hotel is located close to the nightlife and entertainment of the Power & Light District. Recent visitors appreciated the renovated guest rooms, which are outfitted with Hilton Serenity beds, blackout curtains, 37-inch flat-screen TVs, complimentary HBO and coffee makers. The biggest drawback for recent guests, though, was the limited amount of parking. When you get hungry, head to the redesigned Providence or have breakfast in the elegant Walnut Room. When just cocktails will do, retreat to the Drum Room Lounge, a KC mainstay since it first opened in 1941 (and also host to the likes of Frank Sinatra and Patsy Cline). If you're a Hilton Honors member, you can accrue or redeem points by staying here.

    InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza
    Kansas City, MO
    #7 in Best Hotels in Kansas City
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1832 reviewsTripAdvisor (1832)

    For shopaholics, the location of this InterContinental is one of its best features: It overlooks the Country Club Plaza from its perch on Ward Parkway. Guests also appreciated the hotel's style: Marble baths, crystal fixtures and extravagant textiles make it the ideal spot for a weary shopper to get some rest. The Oak Room is a good place to refuel for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and it has a wide selection of vintages on its comprehsive beverage list. But then again, the outdoor pool and sundeck might trump all when it comes to relaxation. Still, what guests tend to comment about most is the kind and helpful staff. If you're an IHG Rewards Club member, you can earn or redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    Argosy Casino Hotel & Spa
    Riverside, MO
    #8 in Best Hotels in Kansas City
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 403 reviewsTripAdvisor (403)
    Free WiFi

    The Argosy Casino Hotel & Spa received mixed reviews among recent travelers. While some past lodgers reported impeccable rooms, excellent service and top-notch amenities, others were less impressed. Some lodgers lamented the fact that there is no pool on-site, especially since the Kansas City, Missouri, area can reach sweltering temperatures during the summer. Accommodations, which come equipped with 42-inch flat-screen TVs, rainfall showerheads and pillow-top beds, were described as comfortable by some, while others said the rooms could benefit from a renovation. Outside your digs, you'll find a spa and a 24-hour gym. Dining was also a mixed bag among guests, but options are nonetheless abundant. Visitors have their pick from Journey wood-fired steakhouse, a deli, a Mediterranean-themed buffet, a craft beer house, a taco eatery and a coffee shop. If you're not up for dining in, downtown Kansas City (and its delectable barbecue) is about 10 miles south. When it comes to the attached casino, some travelers said it wasn't as much of a bother compared to other casino hotels they've stayed at, while others said their stay could have done without the constant smell of cigarette smoke.

    Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center
    Kansas City, MO
    #10 in Best Hotels in Kansas City
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1894 reviewsTripAdvisor (1894)

    Unlike the city's Westin, this Sheraton isn't actually inside of the Crown Center, but it is right next door and accessible via an enclosed walkway. Recent guests said the pleasant staff adds to the property's charm, but noted that rooms could use some updating. Visitors also said the lodgings are made all the more comfy with the Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed, and recommend booking a room on one of the upper floors for views of downtown Kansas City. Beyond your digs, you'll find an on-site fitness center, an outdoor pool (located on the fourth floor) and two on-site eateries. If you feel like exploring beyond the property, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to the Power & Light District and the Freight District Monday through Saturday from 3 to 10 p.m. and Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. What's more, you can earn or redeem points at this hotel through the Marriott Bonvoy program.

    The second word in this hotel's name is the operative one: Ameristar Casino Hotel Kansas City. In other words, guests say that this is an ideal choice for lodgers who also want to gamble day and night. And that might be what visitors have to do: Ameristar's location in northeast Kansas City makes getting to any of the other top things to do pretty difficult. Still, recent hotel guests were happy with their stays, noting that the 184 rooms feature 46-inch TVs, refrigerators and complimentary wireless internet. Recent guests had mixed reviews regarding the customer service and voiced complaints about the hotel's cleanliness. Inside the casino, there is the usual assortment of slots and gaming tables, but there's also a movie theater, an entertainment venue and multiple dining options that range from casual brew pub to more upscale seafood and steak house.
