We came to the city for the weekend to attend a concert at the Sprint Center. I looked at properties within walking distance. This is one of the few in the area. It was certainly the most reasonable. After reading reviews we gave it a try!
Our first impression was hmmmmm hope the rooms are clean! The entry to the motel needs some TLC. Once you enter the main room however the transformation in attitude begins. Wood, stained glass abound. The desk staff, extremely friendly and helpful.
Our room was on the second floor. The only room room being used on that floor. In fact it appears the center of the motel on all 5 floors has been restored in the past 20 years or so. You go in either direction from there and it's a very different story. One side looks like rennovation has started and stopped, the other side hasn't seen anything for decades. So we are still a bit skeptical. When we stepped into our room, we were again encouraged. It was charming. Clean and complete. The bed was excellent. The AC worked, etc.
What really stole our hearts however was the staff! Wow! I have never felt so well taken care of and pampered. Friendly, courteous and very professional are just a few words to describe these folks. They go overboard to make sure you have what you need. The breakfasts (you get a list of choices to choose from) were out of this world. I'm wishing for some lobster bisque as write!. or is it the beef medalians? crab crepes? yup all served on white linens with waiters everywhere to keep your water and coffee filled!!!!
You do need to keep an open mind here since the building is old and in various states of repair and disrepair. But the areas you will use, are just great! The location is perfect. A couple block walk to the Power and light district, about 7/10 of a mile to Sprint Center.
I will definately return to KC and the Savoy again and again!!!!!
