Kansas City Marriott Country Club Plaza

4445 Main St, Kansas City, MO 64111




The conference hotel (Marriott Country Club Plaza) has sold out of rooms in our block. But, directly next door is a Holiday Inn who has a small block of rooms reserved for us for the same rate ($115/night plus tax), also with complimentary internet and parking. It is a 1 minute walk from their door to the door of our conference hotel. They will hold rooms for us at this price until the block sells out or until July 10 at latest, so reserve your room today by calling 1-866-280-6326 with the "NSN" code or using the following link:
