“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2008

My wife and I booked one room for a Saturday night so we could have our two young grandsons stay with us for some quality time (6 and 3). This is an excellent hotel with outstanding staff and really nice rooms. Our room was a "studio" but still had a king size bed, a queen size sofa bed, a kitchen with full size fridge, microwave, dishwasher, sink w/disposal, and a two ring cook top (there was no conventional oven). The eating space was at a bar height counter with two stools. The room also had a recliner with ottoman, 27 inch TV with cable service, and a large work desk. The bathroom and dressing area was divided into two sections, one with tub/shower and toilet and the other with sink, counter, storage and mirrors. The room was very nicely decorated and had the feel and look of a room in a much more expensive hotel.

The indoor pool was the main reason we booked this hotel and it did not disappoint. It is open 10-10 and is nice sized. There were lots of kids and adults in the pool the first afternoon but it never felt crowded. There is also a hot tub in the pool room. The only complaint, and this is very minor, is that the water in the pool could have been heated just a bit more.

The included breakfast is substantial, with waffles, eggs, sausages, pastries, cereals, breads, juice, coffee, milk, etc. It is also open for three hours to help spread out the crowds. The breakfast room/gathering room is good sized and outside of the normal breakfast hours always has fresh (and very good) coffee available as well as fresh fruit.

The hotel is well located with many good dining options in the immediate area (ask about Spin Pizza on 119th Street - great!).

Overall we give the Residence Inn in Overland Park on Metcalf a big thumbs up!

We stayed at The Residence Inn so we could go to home coming and the KU game that weekend. The room was perfect. It had a bedroom plus a main room with another tv, an oven, a sofa bed, and a free internet connection.

We have stayed at a number of Residences Inn's before and they have all been great! The free, hot breakfast was also amazing. This wasn't a twenty dollar luxury breakfast, it was a full hot buffet for free that had eggs, sausage, potatoes, a griddler, eggs, cereal, bagels, fruit and a ton of other yummy foods!

TEN OUT OF TEN!!!

Awesome place to stay!!! The room size was amazing. We had two bedrooms and a living room with a kitchen. WOW we loved everything about our stay!!! Plus two bathrooms. For a family of 5 it could not have been better. We ended up staying two nights due to a snow storm, no bother to us, we were glad to stay another nite!!! Our kids age from 7, 14, and 17 so we didn't have the usual fighting over the tv since there was 3!! And we were not the slightest bite cramped. We cooked in our room so that saved us money. However they offer a wonderful buffett style breaksfast as well!! Nice pool and spa too!!! This place was worth every penny!!!

What a wonderful hotel! We stayed while visiting family. We were there the weekend of the KU/MU game and needed a place to watch the game. The staff graciously opened the breakfast room to all 10 of us so that we could watch the game on the big screen t.v.
The room was great, too. Clean and roomy. The pool and hottub were perfect. The kids loved braving the cold weather to use the basketball court and the putting greens.
A full hot breakfast is served every morning, too!
We have stayed in numerous hotels in KC but this will be our 1st choice from now on.

This hotel is in a great location - very easy to find and so many different places to eat and shop. Staff was very helpful - when I asked about the Tree Lighting ceremony - they looked up the start time and gave us directions on how to get there. Rooms were nice - kids swam everynight - they even have basketball goal area and small area to play putt-putt. Breakfast is great - very plentiful. We also left my 10 yr old's wallet there and they called to say they were shipping to us!! Will always stay here when visiting!!
