Hotels in Kansas City, Missouri, United States of America - your base to discover the city.
Kansas City, Missouri, known as the City of Fountains, was formerly a cattle town, formed in the 1820s. Its favorable geographic location meant that it quickly became a MidWest staging post (known as Westport Landing) in the 1830s and then a railroad hub in the 1870s. It also developed into a famous meat-packing center. Just to the east is Independence, the terminus of the Santa Fe and Oregon Trails and the home of Harry S. Truman.
