    InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza
    Kansas City, MO
    5.6 miles to city center
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    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.

    Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center
    Kansas City, MO
    2.9 miles to city center
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    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.

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 and also has an on-site bar. 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.

    The Westin St. Louis
    St. Louis, MO
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    This Westin is situated near Busch Stadium in the Cupples Station area of St. Louis, making it an ideal place for Cardinals fans to hang their hat. In fact, its high rating from guests is, in part, due to its location downtown on Spruce Street. But the friendly staff and the large, comfortable rooms definitely add to the hotel's charm, too. On-site you'll find an Italian eatery that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a fitness center that is open 24 hours per day. A big drawback for recent visitors, however, were the high parking fees, both for self parking and valet. The hotel is home to a car rental booth, though, making it easy for guests without a car to find their way to the city's top attractions like the Anheuser-Busch Brewery or the Gateway Arch. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Kansas City, MO
    5.6 miles to city center
    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • 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 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 minicooler 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.

    St. Louis, MO
    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Located on Washington Avenue near the convention center in downtown St. Louis, this Marriott hotel offers plenty of amenities to keep guests satisfied. In addition to a fitness center, guests can take advantage of the American cuisine (including St. Louis-style barbecue) at Zenia Bar & Grille. When you're feeling stuffed, retreat into one of 917 rooms, which feature luxury bath products and in-room coffee makers –although many recent visitors express dissatisfaction with the room size and older feel. Both business and leisure travelers do appreciate the hotel's central location, but found issue with the separate parking garage (located a block away). Still, if you're in St. Louis for a game, the hotel is less than a mile from Busch Stadium. Members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn or cash in accumulated points here.

    Hilton President Kansas City
    Kansas City, MO
    2.8 miles to city center
    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • 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.

    Located at the ornate St. Louis Union Station – a National Historic Landmark – this Curio Collection hotel is an ideal home base for St. Louis tourists thanks to its proximity to sites like the Gateway Arch. Baseball fans will also be happy to know that this hotel is located a little more than a mile from Busch Stadium. When you're not exploring the Gateway to the West, unwind at the property's seasonal outdoor pool, or in your digs, which are outfitted with flat-screen TVs, minifridges and coffee makers. You'll find the Station Grille and the Grand Hall restaurant at the hotel, as well as a Starbucks. Recent guests offered glowing reviews of the rooms and customer service, and are pleased with the property's iconic location.

    The HoteLumière is located along the banks of the Mississippi River. On a map, it looks like it's situated near the Gateway Arch, but keep in mind that you'll have to cross a major highway to get there. Guests note that the main reason to book here is to hit the slots and card tables – this hotel is connected by skywalk to the 24-hour Lumière Place Casino. A stay at the hotel will earn you access to a pool, fitness center, the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis Spa and several restaurants with cuisine ranging from sushi to pizza. Guest rooms come complete with complimentary Wi-Fi access, two flat-panel TVs and iPod docking stations. Yet, despite all the bells and whistles, many recent guests report a inconsistent (and sometimes even rude) service staff and rooms that lack proper cleaning.

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free Breakfast

    • Free WiFi

    The Hotel Majestic St. Louis is a solid choice for travelers who want to be close to the Gateway Arch and more of the city's top attractions. The Hotel Majestic's downtown location also makes it a convenient place for business travelers to stay – and the complimentary Wi-Fi access doesn't hurt, either. The hotel's address will also come in handy when it's time to eat: The property doesn't have a restaurant on-site, so you'll need to venture in to the neighborhood for meals (except breakfast; the property offers a free continental breakfast every morning). Meanwhile, rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and work desks, among other amenities. Though some recent lodgers said rooms were a bit outdated, other reviewers appreciated the hotel's charming history (the building originally opened in 1913). One element all travelers seemed to agree on: the friendly and helpful staff.
