KANSAS CITY, MO—Marriott International is set to open a combined 153-room Courtyard hotel and 108-suite Residence Inn hotel this Friday.
Located at 1535 Baltimore Ave., the hotels are owned and managed by Chartwell Hospitality of Franklin, TN. The 10-story property will share a large indoor swimming pool, a fitness center and 3,050 sq. ft. of meeting or event space to accommodate functions of up to 300 people.
Located downtown in the historic Crossroads Art District, the hotels are near Sprint Center, the Power and Light District, the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and the Kansas City Convention Center/Bartle Hall. This is the first new hotel to be built in downtown since 1985 and the only one on the new Kansas City Streetcar route, according to the brand.
“Attracting both business travelers as well as tourists, the Kansas City area is an ideal location for the dual opening,” said Janis Milham, SVP, modern essentials and extended stay brands for Marriott International. “Each brand offers distinct amenities and services that tailor to all visitors.”
