For our first B&B experience we celebrated our anniversary in the George Kessler Carriage House Luxury Suite at Southmoreland on the Plaza. The Southmoreland is 102 years old this year on a quiet street (46th) and offers a taste of what it was like at the turn of the century (1900). The staff is strict on its check-in time starting...

We stayed one night at the Southmoreland in the Mary Atkins room. The room itself was very small. but just fine for one night. If we were staying longer I'd book a bigger room. It did have a small, adorable balcony that would be great to utilize in the spring and summer. The room was on the third floor and... More

My husband and I were looking for a unique experience for our 8th anniversary in July of 2015. The Southmoreland was suggested to us by a family member, and we had the most amazing experience! We stayed one night in the Russell Stover room on the third floor. The decor was a little outdated for my taste, and I was... More

This was my fifth stay at Southmoreland. I love this inn! I have traveled to Kansas City for both business and pleasure for years, and when I found this inn, I will stay nowhere else in KC. This visit was a working trip, but I've also stayed with friends and sometimes my mom comes with me. I love sharing this... More

Comfy, comfy, comfy! The hospitality is palpable from the moment you walk through the door. The eggs florentine - - awesome sauce! The inn is anchored by the plaza to the right (5 minute walk) and the Nelson-Atkins museum to the left (5 minute walk). This is my first bed and breakfast experience. Now I'm thinking of traveling the country... More

Nancy and Mark are seasoned artists and their craft is hospitality. The experience they offer is curated down to the tiniest detail, and yet feels effortless, casual and natural. They have somehow managed to attend to everything you could possibly want or need and have done so in a way that is so uncontrived you almost don't notice it. We... More
