LODGING AND TRAVEL
Wichita has more than 9,000 hotel rooms for you to choose from. Whether you are looking for a hotel room with certain amenities, location or price range, there is a hotel room in Wichita that will suit your needs. We highly recommend you stay in the Old Town/Downtown area.
Old Town is nestled in the heart of Wichita. Among the brick-lined streets and historic lamp-posts are a collection of converted brick warehouses dating back to the mid 1800s. Built with brick and native limestone accents, these distinctive architectural features define the character of Old Town. With more than 100 businesses, Old Town has become a destination sought out for its restaurants, shops, clubs, theaters, galleries, museums, and stores. It has also become a popular place to stay; with some of Wichita’s finest hotels, Old Town is a vibrant and thriving area of the City.
Downtown offers restaurants, shopping, entertainment and some of Wichita’s most prominent attractions conveniently located nearby. In the heart of Wichita flows the Arkansas River, a centerpiece of the city that connects all it surrounds. As you follow the river’s path you will encounter five unique local entities – the Museums on the River, comprised of Botanica, Exploration Place, Mid-America All-Indian Center and the Keeper of the Plains, Old Cowtown Museum and the Wichita Art Museum. The Delano District and Century II are also located nearby.
