Marriott Kansas City Overland Park Undergoing $16 Million Renovation

USA, Overland Park, Kansas. October 13, 2021

The Marriott Kansas City Overland Park is currently undergoing a $16 million renovation, featuring major updates to all guestrooms, public spaces including the lobby, expanded fitness center, relocated and expanded concierge lounge, meeting spaces, and a new restaurant and bar.

Located in the heart of Overland Park at 10800 Metcalf Avenue, the Marriott Kansas City Overland Park's convenient and central location is ideal for conventions, wedding receptions or meetings of any size.

"We're very excited about the fantastic transformation of the hotel with this renovation. We look forward to providing our guests with outstanding Marriott service, a striking new design, and enhanced amenities to exceed their expectations," said George Katz, General Manager of the Marriott Kansas City Overland Park.

Renovations

The Marriott Kansas City Overland Park is delighting travelers with king-sized beds in every room. Every guestroom will feature either one or two king beds, making it the only hotel in the area with double kings. Guestrooms will also include all new luxury vinyl tile flooring, drapes, wall coverings, furniture, and 55" televisions. The majority of the new guestroom bathrooms have been converted from tubs to showers with a new, opulent lighted vanity mirror. Additional upgrades include a brand-new, high-speed internet infrastructure.

Zephyr Kitchen & Bar, a vibrant new gathering place for Overland Park, will be integrated into the Marriott, showcasing innovative local fare, craft cocktails, and an exciting new wine list.

The 24-hour fitness center is doubling in size to 1,500 square feet and will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and all new weight training and cardio equipment, including four new Peloton bikes.

All meeting spaces, including the 10,000 square foot ballroom, are being updated with new flooring, wall coverings, lights and contemporary chandeliers. The lobby and front desk areas are also being updated with new flooring and will feature a modern and inviting design.

The hotel's relocated concierge lounge will triple in size and become a flagship Marriott M Club experience, the hotel's largest, most luxurious, and most convenient 24/7 lounge offered to Marriott Bonvoy members.

The Marriott Kansas City Overland Park was acquired in August 2019 by Wexford Lodging Advisors, a Columbus, Ohio-based hotel investment firm, and Trinity Private Equity Group, a Southlake, Texas-based alternative asset management firm. John Rosen, president of Wexford, commented on the hotel's renovation: "Wexford and Trinity are delighted with the hotel's renovation. We recognized the special place the Marriott holds within the Overland Park community and were focused in particular on designing vibrant public spaces that guests and locals alike will enjoy."

The Marriott Kansas City Overland Park is managed by Davidson Hospitality Group, a full-service hospitality management company. The renovations are expected to be completed by November 2021.

Hotel Group Meetings: The Great Outdoors


There is some welcome good news in the Hotel Group Meetings sector. There seems to be a resurgence in activity - across all sectors and all sizes - from small board meetings to large in-person groups. However, hotels must remain flexible and proactive, as they seek to provide venues and programs that are productive, comfortable, and safe to all parties. One major development is the expansion of outdoor meeting activities. This trend not only serves to meet regulatory health standards, but it also promotes an environment of well-being. According to a recent study from WorldHealth.net, spending just 29 minutes outdoors can result in a 45% increase in productivity; and 63% of employees reportedly felt invigorated after being in fresh air. Combined with guided physical activities and healthy food and beverage offerings, a sense of wellness and productivity are established. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to accommodate the revitalization of group meeting business in their operations.
