The Hotel Sorella Country Club Plaza has recently rebranded to The Fontaine.

Located in the heart of Kansas City's best upscale shopping at Country Club Plaza and just minutes from the entertainment of the Power & Light District, Hotel Sorella is a sophisticated new destination for business and leisure travel. Be transported to a breezy Mediterranean villa from the moment you enter the lobby. Walk across custom tile mosaics inset into the gleaming marble floor; enjoy the intricately carved wood paneling and playful Renaissance artwork adorning the walls; marvel at the hand-blown Venetian glass chandeliers floating overhead. Each detail is designed to delight the senses while setting a scene of serene sophistication—a place in which guests are both dazzled and utterly relaxed.

Each of the 132 luxury guest rooms and suites is a haven of style and seclusion, with everything guests need for a wonderful stay. With warm rich hardwoods transitioning from entry to the bed, there will be quiet shades of blue, white, and charcoal surrounding the headboard tapestry. As the focal point of the guest room, it is a modern interpretation of a classic motif. The sublime white on white guest bathrooms of Carrera marble accented by sleek mirrored stainless steel accents take back stage to the extravagantly over-sized walk in shower with rain-forest shower head. Stay productive with high-speed wireless internet access and a streamlined ensuite work station. There is also a completely modern fitness room and a stunning rooftop pool.

In the sun-dappled Francesca's, guests can enjoy refreshments and a wonderful reprieve from the bustling day. The lounge is modeled after a private garden observatory, blending cosmopolitan style with a verdant mix of greenery. Whether you're having fresh coffee with your morning paper or a glass of wine under the lounge's sparkling festoon lights, this glass-ceiling lounge is the perfect spot. This is also where European breakfast is served each morning. Hotel Sorella offers elegant upscale Italian dining at rooftop restaurant Rosso. This expansive space is a celebration of European and Midwestern sensibilities. Full-service event catering and room service are also available for social functions, meetings and groups.
