Built in 1931, Hotel Phillips is a comfortable, art-deco boutique hotel located in the heart of downtown Kansas City. A short walk from The Midland, Power and Light District, The Lyric and Sprint Center, it’s a convenient location in the middle of it all.
If you're looking to visit at the beginning of the month, check out nearby First Fridays events happening in the area. Beginning in May, utilize the brand new streetcar that will take you up from Union Station and Crown Center (for kid-friendly activities) to River Market, where you can shop local fresh produce and visit the Steamboat Arabia Museum.
Taking pride in community involvement, Hotel Phillips hosts an artist-in-residence. If you’re crafty or cultural, be sure to check out the in-house studio where the artist hosts workshops and open houses.
12 Baltimore is located on the southeast corner of the hotel and has been recognized for its delectable food and cocktail concoctions. I've devoured their salmon dish and pesto chicken wrap on multiple occasions. The truffle fries and drunken fruit also make great appetizers.
The hotel always has events going on, so be sure to check their calendar before your stay!
