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.

The room was nice and granite top vanity and shower were nice surprises. Facility was very clean and had what we needed. Breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold items. Avoid scrambled egg because it look and tasted like processed food instead of freshly prepared. Wi-fi was the slowest we had ever encountered in a hotel. I tried... More

The lady at the front desk was exceptionally friendly- we were greeted warmly and she helped us find a place to eat dinner. The hotel was new, our room was clean and large and the bed was amazingly comfortable. A fabulous value for a little over $100.

This was a nice quiet hotel. Clean rooms good price. The staff was awesome. The only down side is I did not see a side of the hotel that would have a good view. This did not matter to us as we were there to see friends. But it may matter to some one else. If you are looking for... More

This was not even close to the stadiums!! There is a Holiday Inn across the street from the stadiums(why isn't that called the sports complex, just because it has a waterpark? Very deceiving) and this is about 20 or so minutes away. It is also in a very bad part of KC. They had armed security at night walking the... More

I particular enjoyed the spacious and clean room. But when you're here on business and in need of a reliable internet connection. This is not the hotel to stay in.
