    Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center
    Kansas City, MO
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    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 Raphael Hotel, Autograph Collection
    Kansas City, MO
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    Hilton President Kansas City
    Kansas City, MO
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    The Fontaine
    Kansas City, MO
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    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.
