“Las Vegas in Kansas City!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

My wife and I had been fans of Ameristar Kansas City ever since it opened. We felt it was like our yearly trip to Las Vegas without having to travel so far! Since she passed on in 2005 I still try to visit every couple of months--not quite as much fun since she is gone but still is a great one night vacation. The rooms are outstanding and the price is reasonable. I especially enjoy the fact that you have the theater in the facility--it always has one or two shows on that I want to see. And the choice of restaurants is another special facet of Ameristar. Also the personnel everywhere are friendly and well informed. All in all I really enjoy the place.

Me and my husband decided to stay their for our one year wedding anniversary, May 14th 2012. When we went to check in, we told the lady at the desk that it was our anniversary. When we were done checking in before we left the counter, she said she left us a gift in our room. Well we started walking down the hallway and it didn't seem right, because we turned the corner to where our room was and there was only 3 doors i believe. We put the key in the door and opened it, and WOW! My eyes got huge and the jaw dropped! We were expecting a regular room but the girls at the desk upgraded our room to a king suite with whirlpool tub! LOVED IT!! She asked us if we wanted a later check out time but we never caught on to that. We will be staying there again in the very near future! Love Love Love it!

This is a top Casino and Holel in the Las Vegas type experience. It is well maintained and has very friendly staff. All the places to eat are exceptional and worth the price. Many choices. The rooms are all well decorated and clean. I have to have a handicapped assessable room and they are alway large and roomy with roll in showers. The Casino is large and has many slots that are changed monthly. Does not have a pool or fitness center.

Room Tip: Be sure to make reservations, this place fills up fast.

Took some friends from Florida & Missouri metro. Had a great time eating & drinking & playing the slots. The hotel was very comfortable, clean and very secured. The choices of restuarants during the weekend were exzcellent but some of them are not open during the week for breakfast or lunch, need to confirm before you head out there. Nice and clean Casino/Hotel and fun for kids if you will allow them to go to the Movie Theater with over 20 screens. If you don't want to drive to downtown, you can catch the 173 bus for $3.00 all day pass, and will drive you as far as Crown Center, Crossroads, Downtown to the Power and LIght District, even close drop off to the Sprint Center all for $3.00 pass on the metro 173. Schedule located outside the movie theatre but the hotel should have the schedules avaialbe to customers. I think all busineses located at this casino should have these schedules for folks who don't want to take a taxi.

I stayed here from March 22 to 24, 2013 with a girlfriend for a girls weekend. We both flew in from different parts of the country. The hotel is 22 miles from the airport but was easy to get to. I just put the address into my GPS and away we went.

We pulled up to valet and a nice guy named Jason took care of us. He didn't take the bags out of the car or get us a cart for the bags but he was at least nice. Valet is free for hotel guests. I tipped him $5.

The hotel lobby is really nice but the lighting is so low. We noticed that all over the hotel. The lighting is low. There was no one waiting at check in so we walked right up. We had a pre paid reservation so all we needed was a credit card for incidentals and away we went. Janelle was the desk person and very sweet.

Down the hall to the elevators and up we went to the 11th floor room 1108. It's the room at the end of the hall near the stairs. The room was nice. See my pictures for details. Two queen beds, table with two chairs, big dresser with drawers, big flat screen TV, refrigerator, nice size closet. It was a nice room.

The bed was very comfortable. There were three pillows. Nice crisp white sheets. There was a phone between the beds and a phone in the bathroom. Not sure why there was a phone in the bathroom but there was. There was a clock radio with Ipod docking station but the docking station didn't work. The cable TV was adequate but there was a snowstorm in the area and it went out a few times. We had a view of the back parking lot and the train tracks. Trains came by often and if it was quiet, you could hear them but we used the white noise app on our phones to drown out any noise. The fridge was a good size. Plenty of counter space in the bathroom. The lighting was not very good though. The lights in the vanity area were good for mood but terrible for seeing yourself getting ready in the morning. There was a dimmer on one of the lights that was good for a night light. Internet was free. There was a coffee maker and those useless little packets of weak coffee and too few creamers and sugar packets. When will hotels wise up that people want better coffee?

We went to the Horizons Buffet for lunch on the day we left. It was really good and the price was right. $12.99 a person for brunch.

We stayed two nights and it was a nice and the price wasn't bad. I'd stay here again if in the area again.

Room Tip: Ask for something facing the front of the hotel so you don't hear the trains.
