Gonna be in Kansas for 2 nights. Any suggestions re hotels. None are listed in the wiki/trip report links. Would prefer Marriott or Hyatt but willing to splurge on s/t if it's spectacular. TIA

Dont know much about hotels, and my company isnt splurging on anything special, but if you want to be near the fairly limited kosher food selection, you want to be around the overland park area.

Hen house supermarket on Roe Avenue has an ok Deli selection (get their relatively early, deli closes i believe at 5, and the display cases afterward can be hit and miss) 

Most of the bakery is kosher, and there Focaccia  bread is great IMO (Feta+Spinach focaccia is my go to, but they are all good) Very large selection of cookies, cakes, pies, kosher doughnuts fresh every day.

Also have packaged cold cuts & Cheese

The henhouse fried chicken is fantastic for anywhere, let along a supermarket.

It's just nowhere near downtown Kansas City (Missouri).

Stay in Overland Park.
Eat at Meshugah Bagels and Hen House.

+1

Also - Dan I'm sure you got the news already - A couple months back, Hy-Vee Overland Park partnered with Hen house and started carrying a larger seletion of Meat and Milk products in the fridge.

I'm told there's also a new kosher food truck making the rounds.
Apparently has amazing smoked meat.

Between that and the Hen House fried chicken and the bagels, pretty crazy for such a tiny community!
