"They tried to preserve as much of the building as possible but still update it." The property is not only a hotel but also an independently owned history museum. The building owner gathered as many artifacts and memorabilia related to the property as possible to create a place where residents and out-of-town guests can appreciate local history. "Our cupola on top of the building still has the original Keen Kutter name painted on it," said White. The hotel sits in the middle of Wichita's historic Old Town District with the original brick paver streets and a lot of rich history. The entire neighborhood is a busy place. There are more than 40 restaurants, shops and museums within walking distance of the hotel's front door. Groups should note that the hotel has partnered with restaurants, bars and other businesses and attractions for free perks, discounts or extra special customer service in what it calls the Gold Cap program. Guests' hotel room keys are their passports to all of the special treatment. Courtesy Hotel at Old Town The Hotel at Old Town occu- pies an 1800s railroad warehouse.
