Whether you want to spend a weekend immersed in Tuscan luxury or nestled among the foliage of the Mayan rain forest, Chateau Avalon awaits with 62 themed rooms and suites. From a Tahitian treehouse suite to a Jesse James escape suite, the elaborate interiors available at Chateau Avalon add a dimension of adventure to your Kansas City  vacation.
The hotel’s location in western Wyandotte County puts visitors next to Kansas Speedway  and the Legends at Village West  shopping district, but be prepared to drive at least 20 minutes to other must-see attractions such as the Country Club Plaza  and downtown Kansas City.
