What's New

While you are here in Independence, we hope that you have time to take in a show at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts which is located in downtown Kansas City and is just minutes for the Kansas City Power and Light District where there is always great places to eat, dance, and enjoy a cold adult beverage. Take in the history of Union Station or just few blocks down is Crown Center.

Tips

The Candlewood Suites in Independence is just a short drive East of downtown Kansas City, minutes away from Arrowhead Stadium home the Chiefs, and Kauffan Stadium home of the Royals. We are conveniently located off on I-70, with quick access to the Kansas City area. There is always something going on in Kansas City, so please take advantage of the recommendations that our staff can provide you.

Don't Go Home Without

One factor that puts Kansas City barbecue a step above the rest are their burnt ends. While the rest of the country doesn’t quite understand how to pull this dish off, you’ll definitely miss these tasty treats if you leave. One aspect of Kansas City that tends to get overlooked by outsiders is how beautiful this city is because of the water fountains, parks, and plenty of public art.

Must See

Be there as the Kansas City Royals take the field following last year’s unforgettable season, Friday home games are Buck Night's. Following penguins and polar bears, the Kansas City Zoo has unveiled a new Orangutan Canopy. Looking for a thrill with fast speeds, high drops, or lazy river, just 15 minutes from the hotel is Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun.One price gets you access to both parks.

Must Do

Along every boulevard and around every corner, there’s something to do that’s unique to Kansas City. With a thriving creative arts scene, eclectic mix of entertainment and die-hard sports—it’s safe to say there’s something for everyone. Find your way in KC by doing it all … or, at least trying to. Before you leave you must try our barbecue...it's what we are known for.
