Family-Friendly Hotel and Restaurant Steps from Kansas City Stadiums
When the Kansas City Chiefs' Arrowhead Stadium was built in 1972, football legend George Halas hailed it as “the most revolutionary and futuristic sports complex” in the world. In an era of run-of-the-mill, multipurpose stadiums, Arrowhead stood out for its modernistic design and sheer enormity (it's still one of the NFL's biggest stadiums in terms of seating capacity). A year after it opened, the addition of Kauffman Stadium—home of the Kansas City Royals—made the Truman Sports Complex the first and only venue to feature side-by-side professional football and baseball fields. Clarion Hotel Sports Complex is located just across the street from the stadiums—close enough to put guests smack dab in the middle of game-day excitement. The hotel is also just minutes from several other KC attractions, including the Kansas City Zoo and Worlds of Fun Theme Park.
After a day spent enjoying these sights, take a refreshing dip in the hotel's heated indoor pool or lounge in the sauna before retiring to your room for the night. Here you'll find comfortable furnishings, neutral tones, and contemporary amenities including satellite TV and complimentary wireless Internet access. In some rooms, private balconies offer a great vantage point for viewing the stadiums or disputing referee calls.
For breakfast, head to the hotel's restaurant, Paddy O’Quigley’s, for a selection of belgian waffles, scrambled eggs, and other morning bites. The eatery is also open for dinner and has a bar where you can sip a pre-, post-, or midgame brew amid college-football pennants and other sports memorabilia.
