If you need a hotel during your visit we suggest you look at the lodging options at the Country Club Plaza, which is a popular Kansas City entertainment district with a lot of shopping and dining options. (just click on the Stay tab for a listing the hotel options). We do not have formal agreements with these hotels but many of the hotels will offer discounted rates when you mention you are coming to UMKC on business. This area is located near the UMKC campus and Kauffman Foundation (most hotels are about a one mile walk for both locations). Note: If you need ground transportation during your visit most of the hotels can help arrange shuttle or taxi service.
