Crown Center

We have had lunch at the Crayola Cafe and Fritz's Railroad Diner, both were very enjoyable. Really loved Fritz's. We had a lot of fun at the Lego Land.

I was staying at the Sheraton and needed to find a bottle of wine to keep in my room; luckily the Crown Center has a wine and flower shop--which are so necessary for making a hotel room a home away from home. There's also a Crayola Cafe, a Legoland, children's theatre, and other shops catering to the munchkin set. But... More

Nice place to go shopping. Parking either at the Westin or at Union station makes it convenient. There are numerous restaurants varying from standard Italian to the Crayola Cafe and the wonderful barbeque. If you get tired of shopping, you can go right to the Westin and either eat at their restaurant or stay for the evening if they have... More

We had heard so much about this spot so stopped in one evening while in town on business. Hard to find parking close-by, sidewalks were dirty. Loud music blared from various restaurants but not a lot of people were around. Maybe we were there on an off day or they had maybe just had some major event and not had... More

Sandy, I'm sorry you didn't have a good visit. I see you visited Crown Center in August, I wonder if it was during the Irish Fest. This festival is very popular which features a variety of places to eat and lots of music. Our restaurants inside the Center usually have a background kind of music playing in their restaurants. Also,... More

We used the skywalk from Union Station to walk over to the Crown Center. The area is well-signed and we arrived in the mall area very quickly. There are plenty of food choices and shops, as well as the Hallmark Visitors Center, Legoland, Sealife Aquarium, Kaleidoscope and a beautiful courtyard space with a fountain. It's like a city within a... More

I have been to the Crown Center several times over the past 20 years. I used to live in the area and would bring people here, especially during the Christmas Holiday as there was a lot to see and do. I also attended shows at the now closed Heartland Theater. However, now I live over 3 hours from KC. As... More

Crown Center has free wi-fi. Westin Crown Center rooms do not. At the end of the day, the ice cream is a good nightcap for the kids.

this was the first time I have been in KC when the fountains were on. I especially enjoyed this one since at the top of the hour there was a little fountain show with music. There are tables with umbrellas on either side so you can enjoy your lunch. As much fun as the fountain show, are the children that... More

On a recent visit to KC, we had some time to kill while waiting for lunch at Jack Stack's, so our friends took us to Crown Center. Initially, I found Union Station to be interesting and the walkway to be functional, but all I found once passing through the Westin was a chaotic mess of children and chain restaurants. Perhaps...

I really enjoyed the toy shops, and the Crayola shop. I wish I'd been hungry so I could have tried out one of the restaurants on the main level. Free Wifi!!
