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.

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.

Better than we thought it would be

Our trip was just a four day get away, thus we stayed in Downtown, and wanted to be as close the Plaza as we could. We ate our breakfast and dinner down there most of our stay. We found the staff at the hotel to be courteous and friendly. After a rather rocky start to our vacation it was nice to check into the hotel with a smile from a very nice lady at the front desk. About the only thing we could complain about is that the bathroom was small and cramped, not much room for two people to try and maneuver around in. The location was fantastic (walking distance to the Plaza) and we appreciated the covered parking. Our room was better than we thought it would be, and we both felt it was a good value for the price. The bed was very comfortable and the room was well appointed. We would stay here again.

Walk down to the Plaza, as driving in the evening is not a good idea! The traffic is quite heavy and it is much easier to get around by walking.

Nice Hotel Located .3 miles to the Plaza

The pool is seasonal, no indoor swimming. Comfy beds and free WIFI. The Plaza is located within walking distance. The Plaza includes beautiful shops and high class eateries.

KC - Plaza

Staff were great and very helpful. Pool and facilities were excellent and for the money, it is a great place to stay. The building is aged and some areas could use refreshing or airing out, but I would not hesitate staying there again!

Great location, nice staff!

This hotel is in a great location, close to the Plaza and Downtown KC. We were able to walk to museums and there are many places around the Plaza to eat (within walking distance to the hotel). The hotel is clean and nice, a good value for what we paid.

travel for work

The atmosphere here was welcoming and warm including the rooms which did not get below 74 degrees.This hotel was older but seemed to be well maintained. Nothing out of ordinary but would be a good stay again.

Not in the heart and bustle of the plaza but close enough to all the shopping and nightlife has to offer.
