Family-Friendly Suites Minutes from Kansas City International Airport
Located at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers, Kansas City has long been a focal point of transportation—Lewis and Clark came through the area in 1804, as did the first cross-Missouri railroad in 1869. Today, long-distance travel centers on Kansas City International Airport. Located 5 miles away from the airport and about a 15-minute drive from downtown, Chase Suite Hotel offers convenient lodging before and after flights. For those staying and exploring the city, the hotel gets you within a 30-minute drive of the city’s best attractions, including Worlds of Fun amusement park, Kauffman Stadium, and the Power & Light District.
Living areas, full kitchens, and gas fireplaces in some rooms lend studio suites a cosmopolitan apartment feel. The hotel also hosts evening receptions Monday–Thursday, where you can enjoy hors d'oeuvres, draft beers, and house wines (up to two drinks/person). Each morning, there’s a breakfast buffet that includes fresh fruit and signature housemade 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 an included park-and-fly package, guests heading to another city via Kansas City International Airport can leave their vehicle for up to 14 nights (additional nights are $5 each) at the hotel.
Kansas City, Missouri: Barbecue, Jazz, and Nightlife
In Kansas City, the ratio of fountains to barbecue joints is roughly 2:1—as in, 200-plus public fountains and more than 90 restaurants where you can order the city’s signature slow-smoked meat. Though Kansas City is known for its aquatic architecture and barbecue, it has also evolved into an artistic hub. Here, you’ll find a legendary history of jazz and blues, a brand-new performing arts center, and the world-class Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, prized for its European paintings and Imperial Chinese art. Add a die-hard sports community and a downtown area named one of America’s best by Forbes magazine, and the at-times overlooked Kansas City has all the makings of a memorable getaway: culture, Midwestern charm, and an endless supply of sauce-slathered ribs.
Though the storied jazz scene continues to thrive in numerous clubs around 18th and Vine, it’s the flashy Power & Light District that draws a fashionable late-night crowd. This nine-block neighborhood in the middle of downtown is home to more than 50 shops, restaurants, and bars. If the weather is warm, head to the open-air rooftop lounge at Elements or The Jones for a drink under the moonlight.
