Intercontinental Kansas City at the Plaza (proud recipient of the 2015 TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence) is an iconic, 366-room hotel located on the corner of one of Kansas City’s most stylish and historic shopping (boutique and otherwise), dining and entertainment districts — the Country Club Plaza. The Plaza is fifteen blocks of Seville-inspired architecture and site of quiet courtyards, stunning sculptures, and remarkable annual festivals.

Opened in 1972 as the Alameda Plaza, this award-winning hotel established itself as a modern landmark in what is known as the City of Fountains … of which several are located on or very near The Plaza!

The Intercontinental Kansas City is widely recognized and acknowledged for its distinctive excellence, old world charm and well-appointed, beautiful design. It is the ideal lodging destination for a romantic getaway, weekend escape, family vacation spot, dream wedding, productive business meeting, or individual business travel.

Room rates are $175/night for single to quad occupancy (regular room rates are about $269). Wi-Fi will be free for conference attendees and parking is $12 per day in the site-specific garage. Guests will have access to the fitness center, pool, business center, an ATM, hotel bar, and restaurant. All rehearsals and meetings, except for the concert tech rehearsals, will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel. The space to be used for rehearsals and meetings was renovated in 2015 and the rooms, lobby, and restaurant are being renovated this coming year. The space is such that the two concert bands and jazz bands can all rehearse concurrently with meeting rooms already set.

Shuttles to and from KCI Airport are available for $35. Uber, taxis, and rental cars are also an option. Kansas City is a widely spread-out city with little in the way of public transportation, so if you wish to explore the city, a car is recommended. The Intercontinental Hotel is located within walking distance of many restaurants and shopping venues.

All spaces provided for in this proposal are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
