Stayed here with a group convention and was less than impressed. Even though it's close to Kansas City Convention Center and Bartle Hall, you may or may not have to cross the Skywalk to the "renovated" Mulebach hotel, which is now part of the Marriott. The actual Marriott looked great, but I wouldn't know as I stayed in the Mulebach addition, which was old, musty and had elevators that smelled like urine.
Don't eat at the Pam Pam restaurant either--room service of steak soup and salad woke me at 3:30 a.m. with symptoms of food poisoning and others in our group fell ill, as well. Food at the restaurant was very mediocre.
Wireless internet is $9.95 a day, which is a typical fee, but their website says its part of the stay. And to top it off, they double charged my credit card upon checking out--have now spent 2 hours trying to get their less then competent accounting staff to remove the additional charge.
Oh, and parking, $14.00 a day valet, unless you want to walk 3 blocks from a parking garage that's being renovated with jack hammers. All in all, the worst hotel I've been at in a very long time. I will not stay again, I would go to a Super 8 first, at least there you know what to expect for the money you pay.
