We used this hotel not only for a small meeting, but due to being close to the RMA. Nice staff, the front lady who checked us in (late afternoon, sorry I forgot her name) was very friendly. The only down fall that I can find, is not alot to choose from for places to eat. But that is not the... More

We wanted a convenient hotel near the KC Royal Stadium and the Holdiay Inn Express certainly made us smarter for our choice. The rooms were roomy and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent on our departure. The only thing that could have made this place perfect was the lack of a shuttle to the ballpark but everything else was excellent.

My sister and I booked a last minute room for the Rolling Stones concert. The price was on the high side, even for an event night. I have stayed at 5 star hotels with a lower nightly price.

We booked this hotel due to it's friendly reputation and it's apparent close proximity to The K for a Royals game. After staying at the hotel I can now only agree with the friendly staff portion of the reviews on this site. It's a fact, the front desk staff, are top notch, friendly, and professional ladies.

The staff was very friendly. The room was very clean and spacious for 5 (2 adults, 3 children). The breakfast was great and very much appreciated (I am grateful when a hotel offers free breakfast - it's so convenient). The location was a little tricky - our GPS had us take a weird route. No big deal - just a... More

We had a very good experience at this hotel. Check in was easy and efficient. Went down! in the elevator to our room and oh wow.

My husband and I stayed here for a trip to KC for a Royals/Cardinals game. The location is great for getting to the game. The front desk staff was the best. They were very friendly and welcoming. They were happy to help with directions or to just banter about baseball. The room was clean and comfortable. We liked the room.... More

We were in town with our rugby club. The Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Weather issues had us back at the hotel with a catered lunch. The staff opened the breakfast area for us to use and brought out a banquet table for serving. The rooms are very nice and very clean.
