See why life is just a little bit better in Wichita.

Waterwalk Wichita is more than just a versatile and inviting lodging option—it’s the flagship location of the Waterwalk brand, which means it gave rise to the standards for our hospitality, flexibility and superior comfort.

Located in Wichita, once dubbed The City of Destiny, a place famous for its rebel gunfighters like Wyatt Earp and Billy the Kid, rabble rousers like Carrie Nation, inventors, artists  and a city of people who carried almost half the production of aircraft during WWII. That energy and vitality still exists today with various industries, universities and arts/music endeavors still thriving here, and our location puts you within a short drive of major employers like Spirit Aerosystems, McConnell AFB, Wesley Med Center, Textron Aviation, Ascension Via Christi, Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center, Beech Airport Factory, Bombardier and more. Getting to school or work at one of the local universities is just as easy since we’re just five minutes from Friends University and only ten from WSU and KU School of Medicine-Wichita.

Leisure activities are even more accessible with a location next to the Arkansas River and its ten miles of mixed use trails, it’s an easy bike ride to the museum district in the gorgeous Riverside neighborhood that’s peppered with parks, riverside trails, progressive art museums, Exploration Place, historic Cowtown, the iconic Keeper of the Plains bridge and the fairytale nature landscapes at Botanica.

Then again, why go  more than a few blocks? Right next door is the Wichita Ice Center and the local baseball stadium, and just another block away you can rent a river kayak at Boats and Bikes or catch live entertainment at the Century II Performing Arts Center. Or, check out the monthly Food Trucks at Waterwalk Fountain rally with yoga, a plethora of inventive cuisines and live music just across the river.

Then come home to a warm welcome from our 24/7 desk staff, a complimentary cappuccino before relaxing in your airy, open-concept suite with in-room laundry, full kitchen and relax with a slice from nearby Picasso’s Pizza and a plethora of movie options on your flat screen TV. 

One bill. All the perks. None of the hassle.

What is Waterwalk? What is flexible lodging? Are you a hotel or an apartment?

First let us just say that we like the existential depth of these questions. And because
we’re feeling deep, we’ll misquote Forrest Gump. We’re actually not like a box of
chocolates, you always know what you’re going to get: flexibility, no hidden fees and that
signature Waterwalk hospitality. Waterwalk is a lodging concept that believes you should
be able to customize your stay without sneaky fees and unreadable lease terms. We’re
flexible because we can be both a hotel and an apartment—you decide. We offer fully
furnished rooms that are just like an extra-roomy, cushy, amenity-heavy hotel. This
option does not require an application or signed agreement, just a reservation and a
credit card on file with prices set at a nightly rate depending upon your length of stay.
See, a hotel. But our unfurnished option works like your typical apartment. You submit a
free online application with no legal gymnastics on your part and no shady surprises on
ours. If approved, we offer rental rates for stays anywhere from 3-18 months in length.

If I’m looking for something more long-term, what are the qualifications for leasing an unfurnished suite?

A DNA sample and your basic secret society handshake. Kidding, all we require is a minimum credit score of 550, a monthly income of 2.5-3 times the cost of rent, good rental history (No prior evictions or landlord-tenant disputes), and the stipulation that anyone over the age of 18 must submit a separate application with a current photo ID and proof of monthly income.

Do you have any enclosed, assigned and covered parking with a vanity plaque for my DeLorean?

First off, props on your car choice. Unfortunately, if you have a time-traveling car—we recommend you seek a more specialized parking provider. Fortunately, because we sorta hate sneaky fees, parking is included in your monthly rate, but we do not offer assigned parking as we are sort of equal opportunity parking enthusiasts. Early bird-meet-worm and all that. As for covered parking, only some locations, like Phoenix have that option, (mainly because we think 3rd-degree hot-car seat-belt burns are bad).

I prefer my dog to humans. Do you have an area where I can just hang out with

accordion down

Though we love dog parks, we do not have a fenced-in doggy spot. However, they are welcome to use the ample grassy areas around the property—just like they are allowed to use decidedly un-doglike contraptions like our elevators. So feel free to walk your pet and utilize the bag stations for your convenience.

 I have a Corgi-pug so I need to know if you allow weird-looking dogs?

No breed restrictions! We welcome all dogs and cats: weird dogs, weird cats, even Corgi-pugs who might look like angry old men with short legs and a generous backside.

Does WaterWalk have partially furnished units?

accordion down

Not yet. At this time it’s furnished or unfurnished—but flexible means we are always listening and looking for new ways to let you customize. So if your one requirement is that every unfurnished apartment you rent has to provide a creepy, antique rocking chair—let us know. We’re nothing if not curious.
