Suites with Full Kitchens in President Harry S. Truman’s Hometown
While it’s located only 15 miles east of Kansas City, Independence still feels a world away from the busy metropolis. A hot spot of history and small-town charm, Independence is home to dozens of Civil War sites and antiques shops, and it served as a launching point for those embarking on the Santa Fe, Oregon, and California trails in the mid-1800s. But Independence is probably best known as the hometown of 33rd president Harry S. Truman. Located just 7 miles southeast of his home, Residence Inn Kansas City Independence puts you in the center of this historic community, in close proximity to the Harry S. Truman Library & Museum, the National Frontier Trails Museum, and century-old estates.
The hotel’s one-bedroom suites feature separate living areas and kitchens stocked with the essentials, including a full range of appliances, cookware, and dishes. The property also contains an indoor swimming pool and outdoor sports court where you can play basketball or tennis. In the morning, head to the lobby for a free breakfast buffet, where you can make your own waffles and pick up a complimentary newspaper.
