About The Fontaine

Chic Kansas City hotel with rooftop pool and adjacent shops

In Country Club Plaza

Constructed in Seville-style architecture, the hotel is surrounded by the Spanish-style oasis of the Country Club Plaza, including fountains, shops, and cafés. Downtown Kansas City is a 10-minute drive north, and University of Missouri–Kansas City games are a 5-minute drive.

10 minutes to Legoland®

A 10-minute drive north gets you to the SEA LIFE Aquarium, Legoland® Discovery Center, and Coterie Theatre at Crown Center. It's less than 4 miles to the Science Center and 3D movies at Union Station, or an exciting night out at the Power & Light District.

Spa, pool, free breakfast

Bathed in Mediterranean flair and Renaissance touches, you can make the most of stunning rooftop views in the pool or while enjoying Italian fare and cocktails at Rosso. Continental breakfast is available, the spa promises relaxation, take advantage of 17,000 square feet of interior meeting space, and visit Solarium Lounge for hand-crafted espresso amid sun-dappled greenery, or an evening spent with a glass of wine and good conversation below twinkling lights.

Smart decor and free WiFi

The 132 guestrooms offer a tranquil and stylish setting with wood flooring and high ceilings. Tech-friendly perks like iPhone® docks, free WiFi, and 55-inch flat-screen HDTVs are standard, while suites add extra space and special touches, including stellar views.

    The Fontaine
    The location is perfect to walk to the Plaza. Also the great restaurants next door. Not to mention the free car Tesla service, impressive

    5 star service!
    Hats off for the staff at the Fontaine. The hotel gives complimentary drop off and pick ups within a 5 mile radius in a beautiful tesla. The happy hour in the restaurant is not to be missed. Also the front desk saved the day. We woke up the morning of our flight to a couple inches of snow and NO uber or lyft drivers available, not one. We called the front desk and they were able to locate a driver to take us to the airport so we didn't miss our flight. Thank you so much Fontaine!

    Great Staff, Beautiful Hotel
    The staff here is amazing. Our room was ready before check in and we were able to get in early which was nice. There is a free shuttle you can use to be transported by Tesla to within 5 miles of the hotel. The bed is really comfortable and the shower is large with a waterfall showerhead. The rooms are soundproof-no hearing people above you or running up and down hallways. I slept soundly. The room had a beautiful view and the decor is fresh and clean. The rooftop restaurant is nice. The cons of the hotel included the $20 a night extra for parking since other hotels on the plaza has free parking. There is no dresser drawers other than in the bedside table which would be difficult if staying longer than a night or two. There is no actual fridge for personal use. The mini bar is stocked full so i couldn't put the cheese i bought on the plaza in to keep it cool. And while the mini bar prices alone are not horrible- they add an additional 23%service charge on top of the price of the items in the mini fridge. The hotel is beautiful but i may stay somewhere else next time i'm on the plaza to avoid some of the extra fees.

    We’ll be back!
    Honestly, I don’t think I’ve had a better experience at a hotel. The hotel is gorgeous from the lobby to the rooms. The staff are kind and courteous. The food and drinks we had at the hotel were delicious and reasonably priced. The parking was a little pricey, in my opinion, but the complimentary Tesla made up for it!

    Valet parking service marginal. Room not cleaned. Closet light out. Amenities limited. Comfortable bed. Nice shower. No towels provided second day.
