Four-star high-rise hotel connected to Hallmark's Crown Center

Westin Crown Center, overlooking the city and adjacent Penn Valley Park, combines city convenience and peaceful green space with an on-site outdoor heated pool and track and tennis courts. This AAA Four Diamond city resort is within walking distance of Hallmark's Crown Center, where guests enjoy 85 acres of shopping, restaurants, theaters, a public outdoor ice rink (seasonal), and Union Station, another of Kansas City's renowned entertainment districts.

Highlights
  • AAA Four Diamond-rated hotel
  • Downtown location with park-side setting
  • More than 50,000 square feet of meeting space, plus an exhibition hall
  • Outdoor heated swimming pool, track, and tennis courts
  • Free coupon booklet for discounts at Crown Center shops and restaurants
Rooms

Floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city or park make the spacious blue and beige rooms seem even larger. Each of the 724 guest rooms and suites assures a good night's rest with Westin's signature Heavenly Bed, featuring a pillow top mattress, down duvet, and linens with a 250 thread count. Relax with an in-room movie or catch up on work at the large, moveable desk equipped with Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access (fees apply).

Features

Westin's pet policy welcomes dogs weighing less than 40 pounds at no additional charge and provides each pooch with its own Westin Heavenly Dog Bed.

 

Choose from two in-hotel restaurants or in-room dining, available 24 hours. The Brasserie serves contemporary American cuisine with a local accent -- it would be a shame to miss the Kansas City-style BBQ ribs -- in a casual atmosphere, where children are welcome and eat for $1 every day with the purchase of an adult entrée. Spectacular views from the 20th-story Benton's Prime Steakhouse vie with a menu featuring dishes such as hot smoked Alaskan sablefish and seared lump crab cakes. Brunch includes made-to-order omelets and carving stations, and live jazz warms the setting on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings.

 

After a swim, jog around the track, or workout, guests can relax in the whirlpool and sauna or enjoy an in-room spa service (fees apply).

Everything's up to date in Kansas City

I always enjoy walking around the WWI memorial park next door and taking the walkway over the Union Station, where I dined that the excellent restaurant Pierpont's.

Marvelously Adequate

Enjoyed my stay. The beds are comfy, the pool was great, and the brunch on Sunday at Benton's on the roof was delicious.

Great hotel

Elegant rooms, very comfortable beds. Enjoyed the mall attached & several restaurants . Sometimes room was noisy, room was too hot when we got in and took a while to figure out the air control. Blinds dont close completely,so it was difficult for us to sleep in (jet lag)..

Overpriced!

Very overpriced. Rooms were expensive and then you had to pay for internet access and parking. I stayed at the Quality Inn in Kansas City for a few days before meeting my business group at the Westin. It cost half as much and included FREE breakfast, FREE wireless internet and FREE Parking. I will say the Westin had a beautiful lobby, awesome pool and marvelous fitness center, but was still not worth the price for me.

Family Reunion Hideout

We traveled there for a family reunion and didn't get to enjoy the hotel as much as we would have liked. However, the rooms were spacious and we had a very nice view of the city. Housekeeping service was commendable except one day we found a prophylactic wrapper on the floor of our room (not ours). Since we were so busy with family members in other parts of Kansas, we spent little time in the room and didn't get to enjoy the local attractions. There were large groups staying at the hotel during our stay and it seem to bustle with excitement and entertainment. The local shopping opportunities were great!!
