Getting there – by air

The Kansas City International Airport (MCI) is located just a twenty minute drive from downtown Kansas City and is one of the nation’s most convenient airports, serving all major airlines.

From MCI, it’s quick and easy to reach the Westin Kansas City at Crown Center.  The airport offers these options for ground transportation to the hotel. These include:

  • Shuttles can be hired/reserved for direct drop-off to and from the airport to the Westin Crown Center.  The SuperShuttle is the more common choice, and charges $18.00 one way.  Tickets may be purchased in advance online or in any of the airport terminals at the SuperShuttle kiosk.
  • Car Rentals are available from the airport and other locations (Hertz is located in the lobby of the hotel).
  • Taxi service to and from MCI is available. Courtesy phones for taxi service are located both inside and outside the terminal at each bag claim area and at other strategic locations outside the terminal exits.  Rates are $2.50 plus $2.10 per mile and may vary due to traffic delays and waiting time.  Taxi service is available from the hotel to whatever destination is desired.  Cost is approximately $48 and takes about 30 minutes.
