Apartment-Style Suites Minutes from Kansas City International Airport
Poised at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers, Kansas City has long been a focal point of transportation and exploration, welcoming the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804 as well as the first cross-Missouri railroad in 1869. Today, the bulk of long-distance travel centers on the Kansas City International Airport. Tucked 5 miles away from the airport, Chase Suite Hotel Kansas City offers convenient lodging before flights and shuttle service to and from the airport.
Leather furniture, full kitchens, and flickering gas fireplaces lend studio suites a cosmopolitan apartment feel. Evening receptions held Monday–Thursday are accompanied by hors d'oeuvres, draft beers, and house wines (up to two drinks per person). The next morning, a breakfast buffet includes fresh fruit and signature house-made muffins.
A complimentary shuttle whisks guests to and from the airport and to any restaurant or shop within a 5-mile radius of the hotel. With the included park and fly package, lodgers can leave their vehicles for up to 14 nights (additional $5/extra night) within guarded, onsite lots that protect cars from escaped monster trucks.
Kansas City: World-Class Museums in Neoclassical Structures
Less than a half hour from the hotel, central Kansas City is home to a handful of well-respected art and history museums. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art comprises a vast, sculpture-studded lawn and a Beaux-Arts building with more than 33,000 artworks, including sculptures from the Ming dynasty. On the south end of downtown, the limestone obelisk of the Liberty Memorial soars 217 feet into the sky, with an observation deck overlooking the city. The National World War I Museum extends from the memorial’s base into underground exhibits, where audio performances of WWI-era journals accompany sobering trench recreations.
