As could be expected the staff was definitely up to top Marriott standards. From arrival to check out, every staff member seemed incredibly efficient and friendly. The evening concierge lounge hostess, Imelda, was world class. The lounge itself was of good quality. The hotel was always clean and crisp. Our room was perfect with everything in working order. Property is in final stages of an elevator upgrade with 3 of 4 already completed and working fine.
The actual Country Club Plaza bistro area is about 4 blocks away. Rough walk during inclement weather, no problem when weather is nice. **Hotel runs a free shuttle to the Plaza **.
Major plus is the MAX, the Kansas City public bus the runs up and down Main street frequently. It stops directly in front of the hotel and runs to, or very close to, every attraction in the downtown area. At $ 3.00 roundtrip, it is a super bargain.
In addition to the usual hot tourist spots, be sure to visit the Steamboat Arabia museum at City Market. The MAX takes you directly to it. What an incredible historic adventure. Simply an outstanding, first hand experience with actual American history. The City Market alone is worth the trip, especially on Saturdays. While there, get your top KC grade BBQ lunch or dinner at Winslow's, on south side of Market area. ( order the double decker, only $ 2 extra).
If you are "new" to aquariums, the one at Crown Plaza is a good venue for you, but would be disappointing to aquarium veterans. Great for kids of all ages above 4 or so.
