Family-friendly hotel in a prime location for dining and entertainment

Guests of Holiday Inn at The Plaza enjoy close access -- a short walk or complimentary shuttle ride -- to the city's premier 15-block dining, shopping, and entertainment district, Country Club Plaza. Culture beckons from around the corner at two outstanding art museums, and the hotel is convenient to myriad attractions and downtown nightlife. Families appreciate the connecting rooms, free dining for children, and extra large pool with a shallow end. Pets are also welcome (fees apply).

Highlights
  • Located near Country Club Plaza, with more than 150 shops and restaurants
  • Kansas City's largest heated outdoor hotel pool
  • Free shuttle to Country Club Plaza and other nearby attractions
  • Free wireless high-speed Internet access throughout
  • Free garage parking
Rooms

Choose from king rooms, suites, or the Executive Club Level. All rooms include a desk with ample workspace, lamp, desk-level electrical outlets, and complimentary Wi-Fi and local telephone calls. For in-room entertainment, enjoy pay-per-view and premium cable movies or the DVD player. Executive Club Level guest quarters are larger, and free morning newspapers are delivered to rooms. Seven of the hotel's 241 rooms accommodate handicapped or physically challenged guests.

Features

The lively Country Club Plaza, with its busy calendar of music and special events and dozens of dining and leisure options, is a major attraction for guests, but the hotel offers distractions of its own, beginning with a super-large heated outdoor pool. Exercise enthusiasts work out on universal, treadmill, stair stepper, and elliptical equipment in the small on-site Health and Fitness Center. For guests with small children or on a longer stay, the Guest Self-Laundry includes a washer and dryer. Internet access is free in public areas.

Dining

Kids eat for free at the Main Street Grill restaurant, located off the lobby and serving breakfast and dinner daily and lunch on Saturdays only. American cuisine ranges from fine aged steaks to specialty sandwiches and salads. Room Service delivers from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. The Main Street Lounge offers beer, wine, and cocktails.

It was kind of noisey - had to move once because the airconditioning unit on the roof was vibrating.. it shook rhe room with a load hum. The pool was clean.. the bar and restraunt staff were amazing - remembered my likes and dislikes. I have stayed here many times and will do so again.. short walk to Plaza and even shorter walk to Cafe Trio across the street!

A nice stay

We had a nice stay. Comfortable room. They let us check in a bit early. A short walk to the shops at the plaza. I have a big F-150. I was lucky enough to find a spot outside of the parking garage. I would not have fit.

Never staying there again!!!

Horrible! Purchased 2 standard rooms through a discount website (2 double beds) for myself, 2 adult daughters, mother and sister. When we arrived all they had was 2 king beds. No roll away available. No indoor pool or hot tub. Front desk not friendly. They blamed the discount website for the room mess up. No one offered to give me any discount for the error.

Retirement Party

The hotel was great, as was the staff & facilities. I understood from the original description that breakfast was included--it wasn't. I also discovered that I was entitled to points for my IGH rewards since I booked through you.
