KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After delaying its opening because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Loews Kansas City Hotel will officially open on June 1.

“While our opening plans look a bit different than we had originally anticipated, there is no better time to open our doors and introduce Kansas City to Loews, than when KC prepares to get back to business,” the company said in a news release announcing the opening.

The hotel said new measures were put in place “to provide a welcoming and clean environment” for guests.

"The safety and well-being of our guests, team members and communities remain a top priority," Loews Hotels said in the release.

The 800-room hotel at 16th and Wyandotte streets had originally planned to open on April 2, but said in March that it had to push back the date because of local stay-at-home orders and mandates.

The hotel also will feature 47 luxury suites, a restaurant and lobby bar, fitness center, and a spa and indoor pool.

Construction on the project began in January 2018.
