Hotel Savoy-Kansas City

Friday, March 8, 2013

Happy Friday!

I went to Hotel Savoy last night for my friend's Bachelorette Party. This was one of the many places I haven't visited in Kansas City and it was really amazing seeing something so historic. However, I have to admit the hotel was a little on the creepy side and I felt like the rooms were decorated by a 90 year old lady. I had a great time going around the hotel taking pictures during the night and wouldn't mind staying there sometime. The hotel is supposed to be "haunted" but I can happily report I saw no such evidence. While visiting I can tell you that it feels very nostalgic of a different era in Kansas City and is decorated in the style of that past time. I appreciate when hotels have different article or pictures of their historic building and explain the changes that have happened to the building over time.

I found out the following about a few famous people The Hotel Savoy have welcomed into their building:

Paul Newman's character in Mr. & Mrs. Bridge ate at the Savoy, as did Warren Harding, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan (many of whom liked to sit at booth #4, a quiet, cozy one). Another cool fact is that Frank Anderson designed the Art Nouveau stained glass dome for the hotel lobby. I hope you decide to go a visit the hotel after seeing a few of these photographs. The staff there is really friendly and it is something to see for yourself.

    1. Hi Alvin. This is an amazing hotel but keep in mind it is in Kansas City, MO and not Manhattan, KS. :) Still make sure you check it out! Safe travels.
