This property was chosen as the meeting site and I'm glad it was. While it was right on the highway, the rooms were very quiet. Everyone was nice from the front desk folks on ... even the night staff (who aren't always on the same page as the rest of a staff). They were 'spot on' with my questions about... More

I stayed for a few days while in the area on business and found this hotel to be very quiet with comfortable beds and friendly staff. There were some issues with proper draining of the sink and tub as others have mentioned in reviews, but it certainly wasn't a huge problem.

We flew up from San Antonio to go to a Chiefs game in late October. We arrived early and before the scheduled check in time (by several hours) but the super friendly staff said our room was ready and we were allowed to check into our room. The room and hotel were both clean and the complimentary breakfast was good... More

We are so glad that you enjoyed Kansas City BBQ! Our staff always stands ready to assist our guests in any way possible...not just with early check-in but also with our favorite choices in BBQ. We hope you choose us for your next Chiefs game visit (or a "just because" visit is fine with us). More

The Holiday Inn Express on Blue Parkway in Kansas City is very convenient to the sports complex. Along with the convenience, though Comes outstanding service. Lavetta greeted me on arrival and made sure I received a great room and service. The room was huge, clean and comfortable. Ms Hayward clearly manages the facility like a 1st class facility. I have...

This is an excellent hotel with excellent accommodations, location and amenities. Right across the street from the Royals and Chiefs stadiums, minutes from Crown Center and other attractions. Kids eat free and the water park was great. Ask for Shelli or Sherri at the front desk....they'll take great care of you!

The rooms at this Holiday Inn Express are incredibly large! We had a double queen w/sofa sleeper and it was literally like having the length of 2 rooms anywhere else, as well the width of the room at least 1-1/2 times the size. There was a wet bar as well. Very clean and I would guess fairly new. We stayed... More

Our timing was terrible. We shared the hotel with a few soccer teams. The kids decided to play soccer indoors until the wee hours as well as starting around 06:00. Staff did convince the few (inadequate number or) chaperones to get the kids under control when we complained. Sounded like there was more than a little bit of damage.
