In regards to this hotel, it is one of the nicer ones I’ve stayed at in Kansas City. The parking is free or either cheap. The hotel is close to downtown, Crown Plaza, the aquarium, Legoland, and other attractions. I didn’t find anything great about this hotel; however, they did pretty much everything I needed from them well. Pros: 1.... More

We went with a group and had three rooms for one night at this hotel. Rooms were all clean and quiet. Pool area looked fun and inviting. Shuttle service was good with only a 20 minute wait for the 6 of us to get a ride to Westport on a Saturday night at 5:30. The parking lot is small, but... More

Overall the stay was fine, nothing spectacular. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall the room area is very loud, especially staff. The layout of the hotel is poor as this is a large property. In some case you have to walk a great distance to get to your room. This was not a problem for me but could be... More

Lara, Your feedback is appreciated. I understand that some may consider distance to the farthest room from the entrance to be a distance, but as you mentioned it is a big property with 240 guestrooms. Despite that it is good to hear that you appreciated our “friendly and helpful” staff. We strive to provide great customer service every day to... More

Small rooms, very small bathrooms, very loud guest floors, extremely loud lobby and common areas, and comically claustrophobic parking all add up to a let down. The lobby has obviously been redone, but that seem to be as far as they got. The outdoor pool and patio are nice and the people I dealt with were great. There are cheaper... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were in town for a wedding. The staff was very helpful, offered a free shuttle we used to make our way around town a few times.

Dear Marge, Our shuttle service is a really great bonus for the many wedding parties that stay with us.

We chose The Holiday Inn because it was within walking distance to the plaza. It's definitely an older hotel, with a very small bathroom, but it was clean and the staff was friendly. Our disappointment was there was no microwave or refrigerator (which we found out later we could have requested one.) The biggest surprise at this hotel was the... More

For the price, we usually stay at much nicer hotels. In the past year, we have stayed in Downtown Atlanta (peach street) and Uptown Dallas and both times the hotels were nicer and cheaper.

Cynfuston, Thanks for telling us about your recent stay. It is pretty common that hotels located in the downtown areas of large cities offer cheap prices on weekends to try to fill rooms because the large businesses around them don’t fill them over the weekends. Our location on the Country Club Plaza evens out our business patterns and thus our... More

The parking was the worst I've encountered including NYC and Boston! The SUV, truck, and van parking was a joke. I saw a small SUV attempt to park and after 8 tries he gave up, needless to say our full size truck did not fit. Thankfully there are a few street parking spots as the parking lot spaces barely fit... More

The hotel is within walking distance of the Plaza, and just a couple of miles from the Crown Center.
