Award-Winning Green Hotel with Complimentary Cocktail Hour Nightly
Kansas City’s Q Hotel and Spa prides itself in its environmentally friendly practices. In fact, Frommer’s declared Q one of 8 Great Green North American Hotels. This distinction is due in no small part to the hotel's 38-point plan. Some of its highlights include combating waste by donating leftover food to local farmers for composting. Meanwhile, a neighboring elementary school gets much of the hotel's extra paper. Organic wine is served in the lobby bar, and fair-trade-certified coffee percolates in the coffee shop.
The Q pays equal attention to fostering a welcoming atmosphere. At the front desk, you can enlist the hotel's shuttle service—a Toyota Prius—or you can rent a bike to ride to nearby attractions. After a day out, it’s worth returning in time for the evening manager’s reception, where hotel guests can enjoy complimentary cocktails. Meanwhile, downstairs at the Q Spa, technicians dole out therapeutic Swedish massages, hot-stone treatments, and deluxe manicures.
Each of the sleek business queen and deluxe double guest rooms has been recently revamped to include new carpet, artwork, and furniture, and pillow-top mattresses are decked in Turkish-cotton linens.
