Over the last three years, Wichita has experienced unprecedented hotel growth, adding many new hotels offering meeting space, great locations and a variety of brands. Here are the exciting details about the new hotels opening in 2020.
Hilton Garden Inn, Downtown Wichita
With 127 rooms, this hotel sits inside a newly renovated high-rise building in downtown Wichita. In March 2020, the hotel is set to open their rooftop glass bottom suspended pool that allows guests to safely swim over the edge of the building and look down several stories at the street below, making it one of the few hotels in the world to allow this breathtaking experience. The first floor has a Starbucks Coffee and just outside is a stop along Wichita’s Q Line, where you can enjoy complimentary transportation connecting popular entertainment districts on Wichita’s Q Line shuttle, or you can enjoy a complementary shuttle service in a Cadillac Escalade from the Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport and a five-mile radius around the hotel. This hotel is walking distance to Wichita's Old Town Entertainment District and Union Station, and is just four blocks from the convention center. Looking to dine in? The Hilton Garden Inn has two restaurant options now - the Hilton Garden Grille and 401 Pub - and a rooftop restaurant will be opening up later in 2020. The downtown Wichita area continues to grow, offering up shopping, food, entertainment and meeting space venues.
