The Kansas City Marriott Downtown, a luxurious 983-room hotel near the KC Power & Light District, offers a host of newly-appointed rooms to Kansas City guests and out-of-towners during the 2013 American Royal events in Kansas City, Missouri.

The American Royal in Kansas City is an annual event that dates back to 1899 when it was little more than a national Hereford show attended by livestock owners and breeders. Today, the American Royal is a series of events held over the course of three months that includes horse shows, rodeos, livestock shows and auctions, a parade, and the World Series of Barbecue. The 2013 American Royal, which is being held at the American Royal Complex near Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Missouri, takes place September 5th through November 16th. The Kansas City Marriott Downtown will be a destination for guests to Kansas City who wish to stay overnight near the American Royal Complex and the Power & Light District in the heart of Kansas City's premier entertainment region.

The Kansas City Marriott Downtown offers guests visiting for the 2013 American Royal a choice of rooms, dining options, and on-site amenities between the hotel's two distinct towers – the modern Marriott Tower and the historic Muehlebach Tower. The Kansas City Marriott Downtown features 983 guestrooms and nearly 100,000 square feet of diverse function space. Wireless high-speed internet access is available to guests of the hotel. In addition, the Kansas City Marriott Downtown has recently opened MetropolitanKC, a stylish 150-seat restaurant that features a contemporary American regional menu that highlights many Kansas City culinary themes, as well as breakfast and lunch favorites and fresh market specials.

"A great number of visitors, competitors, and guests to the American Royal have stayed with us over the years, and it's always exciting to hear them talk about the horse shows and the rodeos and, of course, the World Series of Barbecue," said Cynthia Savage, Director of Marketing for the Kansas City Marriott. "We're privileged to be a part of the downtown Kansas City community and so close to the American Royal during all of the events going on from September through November. I think that first-time visitors to the American Royal this year will be really comfortable here at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown. And those who are returning will absolutely love what we've done to the hotel in the way of improvements."
