Reader adds new dimension to Kansas City’s Plaza

January 30, 2007 at 10:37 am Leave a comment

Lou Probasco of Kansas City writes–Country Club Plaza is a shopping district designed in Old World Spanish architecture.

"Just returned from an evening on the Plaza. We stayed at the beautitiful Intercontinental, f/ka/ Fairmont, f/k/a Ritz, f/k/a Alameda. It is in the most perfect location right on edge of Brush Creek and the Plaza.

Most importantly be sure and book a concierge level room, where in the beautiful lounge overlooking the Plaza you can visit, read, play cards, and enjoy breakfast, light lunch, heavy hor d'oerves and complimentary drinks, evening liquers and sweets. Plus the services of the concierge, all for only about $50 more per room. Perfect spot for girlfriends. If you visit during the holiday season, you will have the most spectacular views of the holiday lights decorating the Plaza.

It was the cover article of National Georgraphic Traveler a number of years ago and is superb. Growing up in KC area, the Plaza was "the place" to have those wonderful girlfriends lunches. Mother and her two girlfriends,imparted all their wisdom at the 3 hour lunches where the tips were as much as the meal.

As we had daughters, they played under the Country Club Plaza street scene.table and now they are off in their own careers. Hopefully the advice we learned from our moms, on how to handle life and husbands, keeps us sane in our busy life today and helps us pass it on to our equally as busy daughters."

Thanks, Lou. You’ve added a special warmth and charm to the prospect of spending some time in Kansas City, especially at the Plaza. From my posts, you know I thought it was a terrific place. I hope you’ll add additional comments about other special places in KC!

In fact, I hope other readers take your lead and add their thoughts about special places they’ve visited. These kind of genuine comments are what really make a travel blog work well. Thanks again. — tish
