Right in the heart of the Village West area of Kansas City, Kansas (where you’ll find tons of shopping, dining and sporting events) lies Chateau Avalon, a luxury boutique hotel you’ll never forget.
Inside the French-style mansion, there are 61 rooms and suites with 23 uniquely themed romantic escapes to just about any exotic destination you can imagine.
There are no cookie cutter experiences here; Chateau Avalon is one-of-a-kind.
The hotel interior is beautifully designed and full of details, some of which hint at the room concepts. Take a look at the photos on the walls for instance, and you’ll get a peek at what lies behind some of the guest room doors.
You can view the available room themes (and book a favorite) on the website or let yourself be surprised when you arrive. In my case, I had no clue and when I say I had no clue, I mean it. Here’s what happened:
I was checked in by a super sweet hotel clerk and given my room key, so I walked down the hall and around the corner to what was called the Buckingham room. Upon opening the door I could see the restroom, sink and a fabulous library full of books. I was transported to England!
But where was my bed? And where was the shower? I knew they had to be there somewhere, but I could not for the life of me figure out where the secret opening was… because surely there was a secret opening. The struggle was real.
Finally, I pulled on a fleur de lis statue and the bookcase swung open to reveal a bedchamber with queen iron bed and a jetted tub/shower big enough for two people.
The corner tub and shower are hidden behind English columns, so it would be quite romantic for a couple. Since I was on my own, I just took a shower but I did take advantage of the cozy bathrobe (there are 2) afterward while I lounged in my bed watching the big screen TV.
Breakfast can be ordered the evening before (via a door hang card) and delivered to your room in the morning, so I ordered a smoothie, some steel-cut oatmeal (and a mimosa because I deserved one). Breakfast in bed!
Curious about some of the other rooms? I took a sneak peek at a few of them via a really fun scavenger hunt (available to groups) and I absolutely loved the Camelot Luxury Suite (probably because it reminds me so much of Game of Thrones), the Tuscany suite and the Monte Cristo which had three levels!
If you can bear to tear yourself away from your cozy room, Chateau Avalon sits on some beautiful property so it’s worth a little stroll to check it all out.
There’s always time for a spa treatment later… oh, did I not tell you that yet? Chateau Avalon has a spa, and you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own guest suite.
You can also sip cocktails at the cozy D’Nile wine bar with outdoor patio, and if you’re not sure what you’d like, let the bartender surprise you.
Chateau Avalon is really a unique place to stay for couples. With such close proximity to the most happening part of Kansas City, it’s an ideal hotel and you can choose the perfect theme for a special weekend or romantic getaway.

Chateau Avalon looks like an amazing place to stay. I would love to stay in a few of the different themed rooms. Years ago I stayed a a place with a few fantasy suites but I did not get to stay in one.

Kelly Hutchinson says
What a unique and beautiful hotel! The grounds are so peaceful. And that bed! I love it!
What an incredible place! I can’t decide if I’d want to stay in the Tahitian, Monte Cristo, or Camelot first. I’d probably take a month off and room hop!
I love that the rooms have themes. What a fun idea. I would love to stay here.
What a fantastic hotel. All of the rooms sound great. I need to come to Kansas City.
This looks like such a cool place to stay. How exciting that the room was behind a secret bookcase.

Chateau Avalon looks like an amazing place to stay. I love to stay at places that aren’t like the traditional hotel stays. These rooms are gorgeous and inviting.
Love the luxurious feel of Chateau Avalon. I would love to treat myself to a stay here!
Twinkle Gaur says
This seems like a really romantic place. The pictures are so beautiful.
A perfect hotel for a romantic getaway. I was having a hard time choosing a room theme. I think I would choose the Tuscany suite. The Tahitian looks nice too, it makes me long for a day at the beach.
Mimi Green says
This is such a dope idea. I love this concept, at first, I was all about the Serengeti. Then I saw the others, they all have something I would love.
I love this hotel. So cool they have smoothies and oatmeal. I’ve never been to a hotel like that.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
This looks like a really nice hotel! I have never heard about it until now. Thanks for letting me know about it. I will definitely choose this hotel if and when I find myself in Kansas City. Oh, and I would choose the Tahitian themed room.
Okay. I want to stay at this property. I knew as soon as I saw your Facebook Live and saw your secret Library room that I would need to plan a trip to Kansas City!
Sara Welch says
That is one of the most gorgeous places I’ve seen. The themes are so cool. Such a perfect place for me.
Wowzers! All of this looks awesome! I’d love to go….I’d sit on the sttairwell for a while and just be.
The themed rooms sound like such a fun retreat! I would adore all of the rooms you’ve described. But if you ever can tear yourself away, the grounds look stunning!
It looks like a place you’d need to stay in again and again so you could experience all of the rooms. The rooms themselves looks and sound fantastic, but the grounds are lovely also.
This is a nice getaway option. Having several theme choices is great! Would surely help start it off well.
Tina Gleisner says
This looks like a fun weekend getaway which is something everyone should do a couple of times each year, with your best friend or significant other.
