The Hotel Group , a nationally recognized Top 40 hotel management and ownership company based in Edmonds, Washington, and an operations office in Franklin, Tenn., acquired the Kansas City Airport Marriott. The 384-room full-service property features over 14,000 square feet of versatile meeting space including 21 meeting rooms and function space ideal for business gatherings, social events or weddings. It is the only hotel located on airport grounds, 20 minutes from downtown Kansas City and has easy access to shopping and dining.

“This is our second hotel in the Kansas City market and we identified this property because it has strong investment potential and represents the type of asset we seek to acquire: high quality full service properties under strong brands,” stated Douglas Dreher, president and CEO of The Hotel Group. “We are planning a full transformational renovation of the hotel and believe there is significant upside given its location in this stable and growing market.”
