Nice hotel, good food

Nice hotel, clean Only reason I rated it slightly low is due to how noisy it was right above my room. I think I may have been directly under a service area. Ask to stay above the second floor

Night out

My boyfriend and I were attending a concert downtown KC the night before the 4th. We checked into the hotel with super friendly and helpful staff. They informed us there was a complimentary shuttle service that would drop us off anywhere we liked! We ended up walking back at the end of the night, hitting up Power and Light since it was in such a great location. Great room, great staff, would come back in a hearbeat.

could have been better

i have only bad thing to tell about this hotel. Ther was no m icrowave in room and when i asked they were not able to arrange till the checkout. room was n ot clean.There were previous occupant undergarments in the room and when i called they simply said thanks for letting us know. No complimentary breakfast.when asked why,the answer was its a LUXURY Hotel.I did n ot find luxury anywhere. very understaffed.the person who is at frontdesk will also be doing the room service. wasnt worth the price i payed for the room. will not rtecommend it.

Great cozy location!

Stayed here this past weekend for a holiday weekend getaway and to attend a KC Chiefs game. Was overally impressed with all aspects of the hotel, although can't say I took full advantage of it all. Was a bit noisey, especially when nearby rooms shut their doors or rather let them close everything on the adjoining wall seemed to shake, otherwise no complaints. Wouldn't have a issue considering this place for future visit

amazing

Such a beautiful hotel! A block away from power and light. The room was exactly like the picture. The staff was so polite. The only downfall was you had to pay to park in their gated parking lot, but it was a one time fee so it was fine. And they had no pop machine! So we ended up paying 3 dollars for a can of coke. But overall it was such a lovely overnight stay. The bed was like a cloud and the bathroom was so spacious! I will be going back

Great hotel, noise questionable

The hotel was fabulous and the room was well above expectations. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Room service food was prompt and tasted great. The one major downfall was the outside noise. We stayed in a room with a window and it was a Saturday and it was extremely noisy due to the crowds at the KCP&L area. Staff tried to locate a fan to help with the noise, but were unable to do so. Other than noise at night keeping is awake, the hotel was great.
