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 40-inch flat-screen HDTVs are standard, while suites add extra space and special touches, including stellar views.

    Lamel - Jones wedding visit
    We stayed for a family wedding and hosted a rehearsal dinner. The service was AMAZING and the welcoming staff, bartenders, chef, and servers were fantastic. The food was beautifully prepared and everyone enjoyed it. Thank you.

    Bar
    The hotel is great! We we disappointed however at the rooftop bar. The drinks we had and the service we received were not at the level I would expect at a high end hotel. Both were very poor.

    very nice room.
    i enjoyed the bed, the robes were wonderful. the bathroom door was a barn door, and when it closed, it was too easy to pinch your fingers, because it had no stop.

    Great stay.
    Great 1 night stay. After driving around for 15 min trying to find the place......it’s a little difficult to find.. gave our vehicle to the valet and checked it. Great room on 6th floor. Then met for drinks at the fabulous rooftop bar. Very comfy seating in front of fire pit. Great location- walked to dinner in the plaza. Then After dinner drinks on the rooftop. Bed was super comfortable. The shower was fabulous. Room service breakfast was delicious. ( but had to call down for syrup for my pancakes. And didn’t have a spoon- so ate my yogurt with my fork. ) Made our own coffee. Will stay there again.
