Thanks. Any specific hotel recommendations? What about breakfast/lunch options?
I'm not familiar with the hotel scene. I know there are Hyatt Place hotels that should do the trick in overland Park.

Marriott Autograph Raphael at the Plaza is a gem, but far from kosher.

Meshugah for breakfast, sushi from hen house for lunch, fried chicken from hen house for dinner?

I don't think hen house still makes smoked meat, but it was amazing when they did.

Their smoked meats were indeed amazing. Alot of turn over in staff there and they became so unreliable that i stopped going there...i just bring my own food whenever im headed that way.

Is the fried chicken and sushi no longer consistently available?

What's the confusion? It's a nice hotel but is geographically distant from kosher food.

Only the Meshugah location on Metcalf is pas yisrael if that matters to you. There's been a lot of turnover and lot of politics with local kashrus. I believe the guy who used to run the kosher counter at Hen House who made it reliable both in terms of kashrus and good food is no longer there, not sure the current situation since I was last there in June. We usually bring most of our own food for short stays.

If you want minyan, the only weekday option is BIAV, so you'd want one of the chain hotels near the Overland Park Convention Center. If you want to be near the pretty part of town, look into the Plaza or Crown Center areas.

Still available. Just picked up this week. I was able to call it in advanced since my flight was landing after they close. They made it fresh and put aside for me.

7096 W. 105th Street Overland Park, KS 66212
Sorry, the address is officially not on Metcalf, but as you'll see on Google Maps, it's just off Metcalf, which is one of the main streets in town, and how the locals refer to it.

Thanks e/o for all your help. Ended up staying at the Raphael - (premier suite) -was truly beautiful! Did mostly stuff mentioned in Wiki, so I'll only add the following:
I love presidential museums and would've loved to go to Truman's, however it was closed for reno. Did a tour of Truman's house instead, which was great as the tour guide was really knowledgeable and entertaining. Best of all, as of this year, it's free. (Interesting that they don't allow any pics in the house, as opposed to Jackson's house in Nashville- which is older, yet allowed)
Also, if you'd like food f/Hen House, I highly recommend calling in 24 hours prior, or at least the morning of...I went at about 3 pm and it was too late to order a/t specific. Luckily there was enough food in the fridge and warmer and the guy at the counter is really nice and willing to please, but would've been nice to order specifics. Food was ok and surprisingly super cheap (Shnitzel, roasted potatoes, cole slaw, smoked bottoms- for 2, and salmon for next day -all for under $30!)
Meshuggah bagles is n/t to go meshuggah about. Food pretty bland IMHO, although not complaining- always nice to grab a bite s/where.
My personal opinion on Scheels Flagship: With kids, you can prob spend lots of time there, w/o- you def don't need more than an hour (we were there for about 1/2 hr)
There's skating at Crown Center and large mall there and about 3 min away is Union Center - had diff interesting exhibits up at this time of yr.
Wanted to do the Money Museum at the Federal Reserve -(another of my favorites/ Went to the one in Atlanta and loved it) however United cancelled my flight and spent time trying to arrange alternate routes (Ended up pretty much demanding to be put on a Delta flight, as that was the only route/timing...which worked for me. They did that...and I got $200 United voucher too!)
So I guess, I'll have to stop by again if I'd like to visit the Fed Res there.
