Making My Way to My Room

The hotel artfully embraces Kansas City’s history, culture, and present-day essence. Because Kansas City was once the headquarters of Howard Hughes’s Trans World Airlines, you’ll see nods to aviation history prominently featured throughout the hotel.

In fact, I’m told that each floor has at least one piece of art featuring an airplane and a Kansas City landmark. But there is also an impressive wheat-inspired sculpture waving over the spectacular lobby celebrating Kansas as a leading wheat-producing state.

Fun Fact: Loews Hotel’s commitment to art goes beyond model airplanes flying past city landmarks and metallic stalks waving overhead. The hotel participates in the KCMO One Percent for Art Program and displays a variety of works from local artists on the mezzanine level.

My Guest Room at Loews Kansas City Hotel

The first thing to catch my eye in any room is the view. Each room at the Loews Kansas City Hotel has floor-to-ceiling windows. So whether your room looks out over the arts district or faces downtown, you can be sure it frames impressive views. My deluxe room overlooked the rooftop terrace (more on that later) with views of both the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and the Sky Station pylons atop the Convention Center.

Embracing the city’s place in aviation history, the spacious room was a modern take on mid-century style. Just inside the door hung a framed piece inspired by a flight plan map that Howard Hughes sketched in blue ink on a white cocktail napkin.

The desk chair resembled a TWA jump seat, and the couch was modeled after the furniture in the first-class lounge more than a century ago.

The deluxe king bed featured premium bedding that made me feel like I was sinking into a cloud of comfort. Honestly, it was one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept on – like a warm hug, lulling me into a deep, restful sleep.

The bathroom had ample counter space, a well-lit mirror, and a hair dryer. Toiletries included items beyond basic expectations, like cotton balls, Q-tips, and makeup wipes.

Add the plush robe and comfortable slippers, and I felt truly pampered.

Room amenities included a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker/tea maker. The coffee station was well stocked with regular coffee, decaf coffee, and tea – and it featured liquid creamer as opposed to the clumpy, chalky powdered kind.

Other Accommodations at Loews Hotel in Kansas City

While a deluxe room such as mine at Loews is the type of accommodation I typically choose when traveling, Loews Kansas City Hotel offers a variety of room types to cater to the preferences and needs of all guests. There are also 47 luxury suites with separate living and sleeping areas ranging from city-framing corner suites to presidential suites with entertainment spaces. And, lucky me, I got a tour of several of them during my stay.

If I Could Change One Thing About My Visit

Overall, the Loews Hotel in Kansas City is an absolute gem. But if I could change one thing, it would be to fully enclose the toilet area of the bathroom. A partial frosted-glass wall is the only partition between the toilet and the rest of the bathroom. With only a sliding door to the bathroom, it isn’t as private as I would like when sharing the room with a friend or family member.

Dining at Loews Kansas City Hotel

Whether you want a cup of coffee, a light snack, a full meal, or a nightcap, Loews Kansas City Hotel has you covered with its on-site restaurants.

Horsefeather Social

Located on a lush rooftop with views of the Kauffman Performing Arts Center and Bartle Hall, this restaurant was the perfect place to spend a glorious summer evening in Kansas City while sipping signature cocktails and noshing on light bites.

To kick things off, I tried the strawberry spritz, a strawberry/rhubarb prosecco drink that’s part of Summerfest, a hotel package that includes rooms starting at $189, special cocktails, and a cultural safari to hunt down some of Kansas City’s most beloved fountains. As I nibbled on shrimp cocktail, mushroom spring rolls, and watermelon salad, I tried the rooftop bar’s signature drink, Horsefeather, made with J. Rieger whiskey, lemon, Angostura bitters, and ginger beer. I would describe it as a Moscow mule that’s moved to Kansas City.

The Stilwell

For lunch and dinner, head over to The Stilwell. Paying homage to Kansas City’s railroad history, The Stilwell offers American cuisine classics. Look for dishes featuring barbeque, bourbon, and other locally sourced ingredients. On the weekends, The Stilwell offers an impressive breakfast buffet with everything from fresh pastries to a made-to-order omelet bar.

Bar Stilwell

Under an impressive chandelier flanked by gold shelves of top-shelf liquor encircling pillars that stretch several stories high, Bar Stilwell is an elegant but inviting lobby bar. Kickstart your evening in Kansas City with The New Midwest, a Tom’s Town bourbon and brown butter twist on an Old Fashioned. Or grab a late-night bite of salmon-stuffed mushrooms or crab cakes.

Red Wheat Baking Co.

If you want a grab-and-go option to start your morning or sandwiches for the road on your way home, stop by Red Wheat Baking Co. The coffee shop is open at 6:00 am, ready to pour drip coffee and craft artisanal coffee drinks to start your day. Additionally, the cafe offers quick bites like oatmeal parfait and breakfast sandwiches.

Amenities at Loews Kansas City Hotel

When it comes to amenities, Loews Kansas City Hotel has you covered and then some. First is the Wi-Fi. If you’re like me, this is more important than any pool or fitness center, because it keeps you connected, whether catching up on work or sharing envy-inducing vacation photos. So I’m glad to report that the Wi-Fi at Loews is lightning fast and included at no extra charge.

Then there’s the indoor pool. Whether you’re doing a few laps or just taking a refreshing dip, this pool is the ideal retreat.

If you prefer to exercise on dry land, the state-of-the-art fitness center is fully equipped to help you stay on top of your workout routine. You’ll find everything you need to break a sweat and feel great, from cardio machines to weight training equipment.

Sage Advice: If you’re looking for a business center or an on-site full-service spa, both amenities are coming soon to the Loews Kansas City Hotel.

Above and Beyond

Because of my food allergy, I have to chat with the staff before ordering, especially when faced with an extensive buffet like the spread at The Stilwell. When Chef Mark discovered that I’m allergic to all mammalian meat products, he offered to cook a piece of salmon for me to enjoy since the biscuits and gravy, bacon, and sausages were all on my prohibited list. To me, that kind gesture on his part illustrated how Loews really welcomes you like family and doesn’t just use it as a hashtag for marketing purposes.
