Hi, I'll be in Kansas City in mid September. I'd like a hotel that is walking distance to shopping but also funky local places (Westport?). I'm considering hotels on the plaza (Marriott or Holiday Inn). Is this a safe place to stay if I plan to mostly walk to places? I like to hear live music so I may be out late one night. I thought about hotels in Westport but they are short on amenities (pool). Any advice would be great. Thanks!
