Marriott can't take over soon enough!

The trip to K.C. was wonderful as always. The Hotel Q which was represented as a 4 star establishment was a pit. There was water on the floor around the toilet. The bedding was stained & spotted. The in room coffee service was out of coffee & guest services had only decaf. The free breakfast was the only redeeming factor. It was at best adequate. I do look forward to checking out the results of the $10M renovation expected to be completed by years end.

Could be better

The best thing about this hotel was the location. The Staff was never cheerful. Almost made it look like you were bothering them. My reservation was confirmed to via email but not at the hotel. I had to call about it. Cleanliness of the room was very average. Breakfast was ok. I don't think I will be visiting or recommending this Hotel anytime soon.

Going Downhill

My husband and I have stayed here multiple times because the Westport location is really unbeatable. Close to the nightlife and great restaurants, awesome new beer bars too.They used to have a manger's reception with 2 complimentary drinks but they got rid of that which is fine, it just means our staff interaction was minimal. They still have breakfast but we haven't taken advantage of that since our first experience.. It's a cattle call for your omelette and you're lucky if someone else doesn't take it! The rooms are clean for the most part but the bedding leaves a lot to be desired. The clientele was a bit off this time due to a concert called Rockfest so maybe that's why it felt so different... It seems they will soon be a Marriott so I'm hoping they make some updates to the furnishings and that it stays affordable! I really love the location so I don't want to have to stay somewhere else! It just needs a bit of sprucing up at the moment... Not terrible but not as good as it used to be, it's getting a bit rundown.

comedy of errors

First, when we arrived the hotel didn't have our on line reservation so I'm pretty sure we got thier "left over" room, and the desk clerk said we were lucky they had a room left. Second, the room was dusty, had a black ring around the toilet bowl (like mold) and the TV didn't work. Third, the happy hour in the hotel bar has now been canceled. Fourth, the breakfast took an hour and 10 minutes for two very tiny omlets, they were out of silverware, the juice was water (litterally) and the staff were rude. Fifth, they still hadn't gotten the booking from *** so even though I had already paid through *** I still had to pay them - and at a higher price!!! Nedless to say I'll not be using ***OR the Q hotel EVER AGAIN!
