Very friendly staff and newer, modern hotel. As others have noted, unusual in that you check in on second floor. Parking is in rear and easy to miss where you turn. Room was spacious and clean, although the room was dim, even with all lights on, due to “efficient” fluorescent bulbs. Very comfortable bed – felt like a memory foam... More

Excellent place to stay for a visit at KU medical center. The place is new and had a modern design. The room is quite spacious and efficiently laid out, with plugs for charging phones, etc on the bedside lamps, etc. Bathrooms were very clean and functional. There's a coffee maker available in the room. Great wifi access. The staff were... More

This Holiday Inn Express is connected to condos/apartments. So somewhat unusual configuration. Easy on/off I35. Near DT KC. Conveniently located close to KC Joe's (formerly Oklahoma Joes) BBQ. For the good things - the basics of Hotels - it was clean, I felt safe, parking on site, well designed, well lit, 7 Eleven steps from the property. Well stocked little... More

We stayed here one night while visiting KC. The lobby is actually on the second floor of the building. Check in was fast and we were in our room in no time. The entire hotel is modern and very clean. The room was large and the spotless. The bathroom was a good size and also very clean. The front desk... More

This hotel was extremely ideal for my purpose of visiting my grandson who was in the NICU. I was in awe of how it was built. It sits on top of a 5 Guys restaurant. The lobby is on the 2nd floor, which makes it even more unique. The staff was extremely helpful and I was equally impressed with the... More

I stayed at this hotel as it is very conveniently located to KU med where my husband was having surgery. However, I would not stay here again. The housekeeping left a lot to be desired; clumps of hair in the shower; pieces of mop left on the bathroom floor; dirty tissue and food under the sleeper sofa. The extra quilt... More

For the money you pay per night, this hotel is a good value. We especially enjoyed the king bed and free breakfast. The rooms are nice and in good condition. Everything is modern styled, with high-end looking finishes. The continental breakfast is a pretty good call. It is about cafeteria-grade food, but you can't beat a free meal, and it... More

This is a great place to stay right across from KU Medical Center in Kansas City KS. It apperars to be a new hotel. It's set up a little differently with the hotel beginning on the 2nd floor. But either an elevator or stair way takes you right up. The gal behind the desk was extremely helpful and very kind.... More

The bed was really comfortable and had many soft pillows. I did not care for the walk in shower as it was chilly, but it was clean and perfectly fine. Comfortable room chair. Good WiFi. Good t.v. Complimentary breakfast was nice with a good variety. The coffee was good which was a pleasant surprise. Solid hotel. Nothing fancy, but nice.
