If you are staying at one of the hotels attached for a conference or weekend adventure, this is a nice place to shop to kill time during breaks. I would not really recommend it as a destination. Mostly restaurants that are closed during the evening (think food court). THere is a department store (Halls) that is actually pretty nice because... More

Nice for all weather conditions. Large variety of foods available, most of them much nicer than your usual mall food court selections. Nice variety of shops. Things to keep kids entertained.

Lots of stores and food. There was a candy shop that was especially neat. Lots of fudge that you could watch being made, and tons of other specialty candy items. All that we bought and tried were tasty. There is a large Crayola store that has a lot of neat items as well as things for the kids to play... More

Neat place to take the kids. We come here every time we are in KC. Great little place to take the kids to explore lots of things. Adults will like the shopping. Several kids shops.

This is a great place to take the family as there are lots and lots of activities for the kids to enjoy. The parking is a little bit of a challenge though.

It is a nice place to walk around and look. Pricey for the most part, but a good place to walk around on a hot day or while waiting for the baseball game to start. A short drive to the stadium.

We went here on a rainy day and it was a very busy place. Confusing walking around at times due to construction and brown elevator. Easy to access and many options for shopping and dining.

Thanks very much for your visit and for sharing your thoughts, Jen. We know how frustrating the construction can be (thankfully, it'll be over in September), and we're always looking at ways to try to better help folks get around while the work is going on. Thanks again! Chris Ronan Crown Center More

Plenty of options to dine and shop. How the mall links to the venues of the Crown center and parking is a bit confusing with all the signage and construction. It is a must visit.

Thanks very much for your review, Michele. Indeed, we've got some work going on with the construction of our new Halls store, which opens in September. We appreciate you sharing your concerns about the signage, and we'll certainly take a look at it and see where improvements can be made. Thanks again! Chris Ronan Crown Center More

The shops in the crown center are perfect to browse through around the holiday season. There are tons of unique ornaments and of course the collectible Hallmark ones! The decorations really liven the atmosphere and there is usually a large gingerbread house display. Across the street is the ice terrance which is very popular being it's the only outdoor public...

This is the example other cities should use to revitalize their downtowns.The elevated enclosed walkways connect 2 fine hotels to a huge shopping complex. the food court offers outstanding choices from fast food to fine dining. Multi floors of unique shops including one of the finest men's hat shops in the Midwest. All this and you never have to deal... More
