The Westin Crown Center Hotel in Kansas City is a part of the heavily trafficked Crown Center Plaza complex. This five star hotel has 20 stories and 731 rooms available. Arriving guests may not always agree with the hotels self-description of "dramatic'' but the 50 foot waterfall in the lobby is certainly an attention getter.
The location gives guests access to all that the Crown Center has to offer. Museums, shopping, dining and entertainment options are just steps away. Once parked, there is no need to get out the car to have a packed itinerary.
Parking, however, can be a little tricky. The hotel charges $15 per day for parking, yet careful review of the nearby garages at the Crown Center yielded rates that were much lower and in some cases even free with restaurant or shopping validation. Those staying for extended periods will certainly want to investigate the parking options, as they do vary a bit depending on the season.
The hotel welcomes business and leisure travelers. The size and class of the hotel makes it an attractive conference destination, and business travelers will find that all the services they would expect from a top-class hotel are there and available 24 hours a day, except for internet. The internet access from the lobby is complimentary, but service in the rooms carries a fee.
Leisure travelers and families will enjoy the all season pool, running track, and dining options at the hotel. Families may also want to look into the Westin Kids Club, which may provide the opportunity for parents to slip out for a nice meal and a show at the Crown Center without the little ones in tow. Dogs less than 40 pounds are welcome and dog beds are available.
Seasonal packages and event packages are available. The summer and holiday seasons are particularly busy, both at Crown Center and the hotel. Guests seeking a retreat will find the hotel to be too interconnected with the rest of the complex to provide escape, but it is hard to get away when all the attractions of the city are only minutes away.
