If you are not staying at the Kansas City Marriott Country Club Plaza: 

  • You can pay for parking at the hotel.  Rates are $15 for 8+ hours, or $7 for less than 8.  
  • Valet parking is also available at the hotel.  Rates are $19 for 8+ hours or $12 for less than 8
  • There is some street parking available, and if you don't mind a walk (couple of blocks) there are many free parking garages on the nearby plaza.
Transportation between the Kansas City Airport and the Marriott:
  • The Kansas City airport (MCI) is located on the outskirts of the city, ~25 miles from the Marriott.  Estimated taxi fare from the airport to the Marriott is $65/one way. 
  • A more affordable option is the SuperShuttle Shared Van (max number of passengers = 10) which starts at $19/one way.  Prices go up from there depending on option chosen (non-stop, fewer passengers, from $44 to $79).  Reservations to the airport are required.  Reservations from the airport are not required but are recommended. 
  • Uber is also an option. 
  • Unfortunately public buses are not a convenient option since the trip will require several bus changes and take ~1.5 hours.
