Hotel Information:

Comfort Inn & Suites

7200 W. 107th St.

Overland Park, KS 66212

Hotel number: 844-746-5588 ( room rates for 2 queen or 1 king are $124 + fees & taxes.

All of the reservation providers have the rate at $95 for the same accommodations. 855-239-9246 is Hotels.com I believe. You can Google the Hotel and that should give you all the info you need.


Free WiFi and cooked to order breakfast if that matters.



This hotel is right of 435 & Metcalf but on the opposite side of the highway than the Pear Tree Inn we usually stay at. The Pear Tree Inn is now Drury Hotel and is under renovation although still operating. Drury is $149 so I didn't think making reservations there made much sense.


The KC GPVR will be providing dinner at a resturaunt near by. More information still to come.


See you soon, Mack.

Just to let everyone know, if you book through the hotel you can cancel the reservation if you need to. When booking through online services you may not be able to cancel and could be charged the complete fee. Pay attention to the fine print if you book on line!
