Holiday Hotel Specials for KC Visitors

With the holidays on the horizon, it’s officially time to start planning where to put your out-of-town family and friends visiting KC.

In a perfect world, we would all have the space (and desire) to welcome guests into our homes. But if that’s not an option or you and your guests prefer to have your own space during the already-hectic season, consider these options.

For a dose of authentic KC charm and easy access to Westport’s many treasures, advise your friends and families to check into 816 Hotel. Stays on select dates in November are only $89 per night, and every guest at the hotel receives free breakfast, free nightly drinks, shuttle service in a 4-mile radius, free parking and a pass to nearby Gold’s Gym (for when the desperate need to work off all the sugary snacks and creamy dips of the season hits).

The Plaza Lights Package at the Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza offers a view of the lights, a must-see for anyone traveling to our fair city during this time of year. Rooms start at $134 per night and include a $50 gift card to the Plaza to help out with those last-minute shopping needs. For your artsy relatives, suggest the Arts & Cultural Package, which includes two tickets to the Nelson-Atkins special exhibition, “The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth & Sky,” discounts at the World War I Museum, shuttle transfers to and from the museums and breakfast for two.

Hotel Raphael is also offering a special on the Plaza holiday experience with its Holiday Magic package, complete with an elegant room, a bottle of wine, a commemorative wine stopper and Bell Ringer holiday cocktails. Guests don’t even have to worry about braving the cold since Chaz on the Plaza is on-site.
