Kansas City’s convention hotel steering committee met Monday to review proposals from two developers and four hotel operators as part of the city’s effort to advance construction of a new hotel to support its convention center.

The committee is expected to make a recommendation to the City Council next year on a developer and hotel operator.

A financing plan has not been announced and city officials have not said how much public funding might be needed. Mayor Mark Funkhouser opposes the project.
