Sheraton Kansas City to get $13 million revamp

Kansas City’s former Hyatt Regency Crown Center has reopened as a Sheraton hotel.

If it doesn’t look quite like a Sheraton yet, don’t be surprised.

The 40-story, 730-room hotel has just launched a $13 million renovation aimed at updating key areas and creating all of the Sheraton chain’s signature amenities, Starwood says.

The hotel opened in 1980 as a Hyatt.

The makeover will mean updated guest rooms, including new bedding, as well as a new club lounge and a new fitness center programmed by Core Performance.

Starwood runs the other Crown Center hotel, which is a Westin, as well as the Crown Center Exhibit Hall and two restaurants in the Crown Center shopping center.

The Kansas City Business Journal last week reported that the two hotels have already attracted new conventions, including one for the Folk Alliance International. The five-year convention starts in 2014 and is expected to bring 4,000 room nights a year, the story says.

The story also notes that the hotel’s old restaurant – the Peppercorn Duck Club — is now closed so that it can be converted into a new restaurant.
