We had a car, and we were looking for an inexpensive hotel somewhat close to downtown KC, MO. Downtown KC, Kansas doesn't seem to have much going for it, but our location seemed safe enough. And it was easy to get in and out of the hotel and go sight-seeing.
Our non-smoking king room was on the back side, looking at the parking garage. As a result, it was very quiet even with the window open. Parking was free. The room was over-perfumed when we arrived, but opening window helped reduce the odor. The bedding had been cleaned with unscented products, which was nice.
There was a pitiful analog TV that produced a mediocre picture. The senior room rate did not include breakfast (there was an ad about their cooked breakfast on the reservation, but I hadn't noticed it didn't say free or complimentary when I booked), so we did not try the restaurant. The bed had a very heavy comforter for summer, and there was no blanket in the room; the front desk got one for me when I asked. Wireless Internet got one bar in our upstairs end room, but I got strong connection with my laptop plugged into the CAT5 outlet.
Nowhere in the room were there instructions for the Garden Sleep System adjustable bed, so I did not know we had it (I had never stayed in a Hilton Garden Inn). The first night I had a miserably soft bed and slept poorly. The next day, I saw the instructions in one of the elevators. Sure enough, the control was hidden behind a flap on the mattress where you need a light to see it, and it was set to soft. The firm setting worked wonders for me and made my remaining stay very pleasant.
