Unity of Independence is located in the northeast area of Kansas City, Missouri. It is a very convenient place to gather for a number of reasons.
Driving to Unity of Independence from the Kansas City Airport is an easy 30-minute drive along I-435 to I-70, which means you can get there without going though Kansas City traffic. Car rentals from the airport for the weekend of our gathering are much lower than average, starting at $19/day and a Hotwire search shows the cost for 2-day rental to be $69.00.
Unity of Independence is situated near the "Independence - Sports Complex" area of Kansas City. You will find there many affordable hotels, especially those near Noland Road. The drive to Unity of Independence is typically under 5 minutes from most of the hotels.
I recommend going to Hotwire.com and look for hotels in the "Independence - Sports Complex" area of Kansas City. Those are very close to the church and they are the best buys in town. I always book at Hotwire when I'm in KC. One thing ... do the booking for the room about 4-5 days before the event. Once you've booked, then you can't get a refund. The hotels get more desperate as the day approaches and the prices are actually lowest at the last minute. Same thing with cars.

For those who wish to visit or to stay at Unity Village, the drive is another easy 20-minute excursion, along I-70. And like the commute from the airport, there is no need to cross downtown traffic.
