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.

Did not stay the night there

We discovered a bed bug during our stay and were therefore, unhappy with the cleanliness of the hotel. The staff was friendly and very helpful as they set us up at a very nice nearby hotel at no charge and I was very pleased with their willingness to take responsibility and deliver quality customer service.

Enjoy the Plaza, not this hotel

If I would want anyone to know anything about this hotel, it's that it's a little [*]. (Sorry about the spelling. [...] apparently considers the word profanity(??) ) Not unhygienic or anything -- not completely bad. But a little [*]. So ... if you're getting a great deal on the price, rest assured that you are in a great location to take in some of Kansas City's best shopping, dining and cultural opportunities. But if you need your hotel to be a little swank, you'll want to stay somewhere else.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

For anyone that doesn't know Kansas City, this hotel is located just a couple blocks from the fabulous Plaza. The Plaza is an outdoor shopping, dining, strolling bit of heaven. And with the buildings decorated in a Mediterranean style and statues and fountains everywhere, it's enjoyable just to walk it. Parking is easy to find and usually free.

An okay stay

The staff was curtious and polite. The room smelled old and musty. Not fresh and clean as one would expect staying in a Holiday Inn.

Mixed feelings

Weekend get-away to visit the Plaza; easy to walk to museums, restaurants and shops. However, room needed maintenance: several light bulbs were burnt out and the air conditioner wasn't working. Hotel layout is inconvenient for elevators, so were glad we had walking shoes. Overall a so-so hotel experience; willing to give it another chance sometime and see if things improve.

Break up your meal into smaller visits during your walking/shopping tour: a salad and appetizer at Brio, gelato at Balsano's (the best gelato in town). Many very good restaurants to choose from!

Ok for a city stay

Good location for access to the art district, but old and poorly laid out. No good view of the city like it's taller neighbors.

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.

Comfortable Stay

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

Holiday Inn

Overall stay: Fair. The front desk clerk was not friendly, nor was he rude. He seemed unhappy to be working. It rained all weekend, but we still had a great time. I was hoping for a little more luxury when I reserved a "Plaza View" room. Instead, it was a mediocre business traveler's room with a view of the ugly roof of lower levels and plaza buildings off in the distance. I would hardly consider it "Plaza View", then again there was little price difference, so its hard to say I expected a spectacular view.

good non expensive hotel

Hotel was clean. Rooms and hall were dated but clean. Lobby and front common areas were modern. Good value for quick non fancy stay.
