The Westin Kansas City at the Crown Center debuted the brand’s new Tangent meeting concept as part of a $22 million renovation. Tangent areas are designed to be flexible workspaces that can accommodate impromptu meetings for small groups. At the Crown Center hotel, the Tangent space is a 260-square-foot room that can accommodate several groups of four to six people and can be booked immediately, for as little as an hour.

The hotel also offers 150,000 square feet of standard meeting space.
