This Marriott definitely has the feel of other Marriotts around the country. It's definitely in the upper half of quality of hotel options, but not terribly luxurious. Clean and comfortable with all the modern furnishings. This downtown KC Marriott had updated and modern rooms, but the lobby and other elements looked a bit dated. The hotel is located very close...

The good: Self park available if you don't want to do valet. Exceptionally friendly staff. Easy location downtown. Comfortable bed. Clean Room. The okay: Bathroom seems a little old. The bad: The tub and sink both drained slowly. Most of the cable channels were snowy. There is no excuse for having a hotel without a lot of easily available outlets... More

We stayed at the KC Marriott downtown to attend a concert at the Sprint Center. The hotel is within walking distance of the Sprint Center and many of the downtown KC attractions. Check-in was quick and easy and our room was prepared in advance (I am a Marriott Rewards Silver Member). This hotel consists of two buildings - one that... More

If you are traveling to KC for any reason and want to be close to the "Power and Light" district, you're easily within a block's walking distance from that, the Midland venue, and a easy quick access to the main interstate. The hotel itself is beautiful, the lobby/lounge/bar area is really nice. Much better than other Marriott properties I've seen.... More

Went to KC for a conference. Hotel had many of the participants. The room was so comfortable. The service was great. My one complaint was the elevators which were challenged by the many people trying to go up and down all at the same time. Overall a great place to stay while attending a conference in KC.

The Marriott hotel was perfect. The rooms were clean, the staff was quick and efficient and very courteous. It's a walk away from the convention center. The bar in the lobby has great drinks and even better food. The beds and pillows are comfortable. It's probably a mile away from the power and light district. I definitely recommend it to... More

The Downtown Marriott, Kansas City, MO hosted a national conclave of my college fraternity (DU) recently. Every aspect was world class and high end. I've rarely been so pampered and accommodated by every staff and manager I encountered. I'm not just sugar coating it to be nice. I am not a difficult hotel patron, but I can be discerning about...

I was in KCMO for a conference and this hotel was chosen for me. It was very comfortable, right across the street from the conference centre and quite lovely.
