Prior to our visit I spent hours checking hotels in KC (Missouri) and not finding anything that met our basic needs and that wasn't over priced. Somehow I missed the fact that this HI is one block over from the state line and within 5 - 10 minutes drive to most of the major attractions in KC. Free breakfast, free... More

We stayed here the night before my procedure and it was very comfortable. The young woman that checked us in was very pleasant. Overall clean and safe. Had a five guys, and a few eateries close by for convenience. Nothing outstanding, and as everyone has said you can hear the doors shutting all night, but the next hotel we visited... More

Appears to be recently updated. Plank-type ceramic tile, snail design showers, newer appliances and furniture. Very comfortable bed. Most important---clean. Underground, secure parking although you may want to leave a crumb trail so you can find the correct stairwell to get to your car. A couple minor blips at the morning breakfast (no plastic knives and orange juice was mostly... More

We had last minutes plans to go to KC for the weekend and most hotels in the Plaza / Westport and Downtown area were booked up. Because of price and availability, we chose the Holiday Inn Express near the KU Medical Center. Upon checking in we were surprised that the hotel is very new, modern and upscale compared to other...

My husband and I stayed in an executive suite. The room was spacious and clean. Annemities were readily available. The lobby has a small store with OTC MEDS, ice cream, and beverages. The staff is absolutely fabulous: friendly, hardworking, and helpful. Security measures are in place. The only complaints I have are that the show is a bit ackward; the... More

I have not stayed at a Holiday Inn property in a long time, but wow! This hotel might just change that. It was clean & comfortable, had spacious rooms, a decent breakfast and fast internet. Add to that the fact that there are some fast food restaurants and a 7-11 on the main floor, and what more can you ask... More

We stayed here for doctor appointments. While it is next to the hospital, there wasn't a shuttle to take you and this is a big place. I would recommend a room in the back as Rainbow Blvd. is busy and had a lot of traffic noise. The other problem, when other guess shut thier doors, there are no buffers on... More

First time in KC and chose this hotel due to location to family and hospital. All the staff were very engaging and helpful. I believe the lady in the breakfast area spoke to every person that came in. Definitely stay here again.

This hotel is definitely your best option if you need to stay in close proximity to KU Med. It is relatively new, clean, and nice. That being said, it's your standard Holiday Inn Express with an interesting layout. There is a complimentary breakfast each day that is good, but not amazing. Parking is free and very close. Plus, there is... More

This hotel was very new and clean. The room itself was nicely sized with a king bed that was decently comfortable. It had a flat-screen TV with a nice selection of channels. It had a larger than average sized refrigerator and a microwave. The bathroom was modern and had plenty of counter space for me to spread out all of... More
