Lively hotels?

My sister and I will be coming to KC in May for a weekend. We'd like to stay at a hotel either w/i walking distance from bars/restaurants or stay at a hotel with a bar or club. We're both in our 30's and would prefer to keep it under $200 nightly. Any suggestions?

You'll want to stay at or near the Country Club Plaza and Westport. There is a Hampton Inn and an Embassy Suites located between the Plaza and Westport so you can explore both areas.

I would agree with the first person that states you will want to stay near the Country Club Plaza area. This is a good mix of food/entertainment and shopping all within a short walk. If you are looking for something a little nicer with more attitude try The Raphael or The Fairmont as you can get some good weekend package deals that might work out for you.

Absolutely, stay on the Plaza! $200 will get you a nice place either Chain -- Mariott or Boutique type hotel, Raphael. As to the Westport area, I would exhaust yourself at the Plaza before thinking about Westport, it isn't what it used to be.

There is also a Sheraton Suites on the Plaza. It is towards the west end of it...but everything is within walking distance.

I've stayed at the Sheraton and Raphael, both are excellent but quite different. The Raphael is lovely, ask for a Plaza view, and perhaps take cocktails over the road at the Fairmont (now the Intercontinental!) piano bar before strolling over the bridge to the Plaza and the many restaurants and bars there... great ribs at Houstons!!!
