Crown Center Complex Meetings
Kansas City offers visitors a distinctive travel experience and two inspired hotels in the very heart of it all: the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center and The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center. These landmark hotels are conveniently connected via a glass enclosed, climate-controlled skywalk, “The Link.” The Link also connects guests to Union Station and Hallmark’s Crown Center, with more than 80 shops, restaurants, live theaters, ice skating in the winter and the international headquarters of Hallmark Cards, Inc.
Combined meeting and exhibit space total more than 148,000 square feet including the 45,500-square-foot Crown Center Exhibit Hall and two large ballrooms that are each over 16,000 square feet, for any size event. From conventions to conferences, weddings to galas and more, the options of the over 52 spaces are endless. Every event is supported by state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, high-speed Internet access, and 24-hour business centers. Enthusiastic staff and an Executive Meeting Specialist will efficiently attend to all the details of the event so you can focus on what truly matters—your people. At the end of the day, our guestrooms and suites provide extra room and extra touches to make each stay relaxing and worry-free.
