The ICKC sets a standard among Kansas City hotels. It's location is perfect along Brush Creek and Country Club Plaza. It's very close to nice restaurants, Seasons 52 is our favorite, and some awesome shops. Williams-Sonoma is just across the way and always has something going on. Our favorite shop is probably The Better Cheddar. It started as a sandwich and cheese shop and has turned into so much more! All within easy walking distance for most everyone.
Staying at the ICKC we always stay on the concierge level. It's a little more expensive but so worth it. A light breakfast is served. Snacks are most always available and an assortment of drinks. In fact, they have a machine that makes a latte as well as Starbucks and you don't pay $5 a cup! That pays for it for us right there. Not to mention the concierge, very knowledgeable and a great resource for getting a reservation. Concierge Craig, in fact, got us a reservation we were unable to get ourselves.
We have yet to visit the bar and restaurant onsite but things always look busy.
Nice hotel, great crowd, perfect location.
