I have not stayed in the Oak Street Mansion, but I've seen all the rooms and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any of my friends planning to come to Kansas City. This beautiful 1907 mansion took two years to restore by its owners, Roland and Marcia Sabates. Each of the seven spacious rooms in the main house has a large, fully modernized bathroom. There is also a suite in the carriage house. The owners call it "Kansas City's Small Art Hotel," having furnished it with their own fine art collection. There is artwork throughout the house, and each room has its own theme, such as the Jazz Room, the Impressionist room, and the Lithograph Room. The Oak Street Mansion is wonderfully located, within walking distance of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Country Club Plaza shopping district.
