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.
