Kansas City areas to stay

Just wondering if there is an area or district with hotels that would be best for walking to restaurants and bars? Completely unfamiliar with the city so any insight would be great!

If you stay downtown, you will be within walking range of the Power & Light district with several restaurants and bars. Other than that, I'd recommend staying on the Country Club Plaza. There a few hotels nearby and there are more dining and shopping options here than downtown. If you want to save a little money on your hotel, look into the Village West area (near the speedway, Sporting KC stadium, and Legends mall). There are still several restaurants and bars close by, but should be cheaper than staying downtown or on the plaza.

The area between KU Medical Center and Westport is a good walk with sites aplenty. The Holiday Inn Express KU Medical Center is one of the better options for hotels in the immediate area.

Country Club Plaza for upscale, Westport for downscale, Downtown/Power & Light for what you find in any city (but still nice).

There is a shopping mall called "Plaza mall". Around the mall lots of nice and comfortable hotels are waiting for you. Also, decent and quality restaurant are in the mall, such as American food, Asia food and European food.

Echoing what has already been said, Power & Light, Plaza, and Westport are your best options.

Power & Light - newer, trendier bars and restaurants. There are a lot of large events hosted here, so it can get crowded depending on the dates you're around. You also are on the free streetcar line in P&L which allows you to easily get to the River Market and Crossroads neighborhoods, expanding your food/drink options quite a bit.

Plaza - upscale shopping and restaurants. It's a beautiful area and has some nice parks and walking trails nearby. There are a few bars here, but it's known more for shopping and dining than nightlife.

Westport - Great bars and restaurants. It can get pretty rowdy late at night.
