Would stay again.

We stayed there for a night before the Chiefs game. Location is by far the best thing that this hotel has goign for it. It was at 65% capacity so parking wasn't an issue. Our room was clean but kind of outdated. If we had to we would stay again.

Weekend Escape

My boyfriend and I planned a weekend escape to KC based around the Mizzou basketball game at the Sprint Center. It was date night with no kids so we needed a place close to the game so we could walk back if we decided to go out for drinks. The location was amazing but not for the price. I expected to have an extravagant room for the price we paid. The lobby of the hotel was nice but the rooms were not. Once we stepped out of the elevator onto the twelfth floor you could immediately see the outdated floors and need for repairs. When we stepped into our room it was not as nice as the pictures show. It was again in need of repair, the bathroom was tiny and there wasn't even a mini fridge. I could've stayed in a nice condo for the same price. Plus the toilet made a horrible noise everytime you flushed it and you could hear the neighbors alarms sound and them showering. The view was nice and location was great!

Small room, fantastic location!

The room was probably the smallest one on the floor, but it had a great view of Power and light and downtown KC. Amenities were good but the bathroom lacked an exhaust fan. Also beware that parking is $15 per day, something not mentioned or included. But being within walking distance of the Sprint Center and Power and light are well worth it!

Great location for down town activities. Bar needs to stay open later though. Over all, not a bad hotel.

close to P&L

Fine hotel, good valet parking, clean, good location. Short walk to Sprint Center and Power and Light District. Felt safe while walking to/from Sprint, however, saw on the KC news the next evening there was a shooting at 330am on the corner of 13th and Wyandott. (Exactly where this hotel is). I would stay here again, but that is a little concerning!

Cleanliness

The room was very dusty, the kids ran around with no shoes on and when they came back their feet were black, this place can use a little cleaning

Good option in the Power and Light District

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza for 3 nights. The hotel is walking distance to the Power and Light district (a square block with a large screen TV outside and several bars and restaurants). The location was great for us. Parking is reasonable at $13 per day, but street parking is free and easy to find on the weekends. We didn't get an opportunity to use the pool, but it looked nice. They do close the pool for the fall/winter season even though it is heated. Our room was average, but comfortable. Housekeeping came in all days, but one day seemed to only change towels and forgot to do trash and make the bed. We received a basket of goodies because of the error which was nice of the hotel staff. All in all this was a good hotel and great location.
