“comfortable stay and convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

The hotel is very nice with a great location. The beds were very comfortable and our room (2 queens with a sofa sleeper) was quite large compared to most hotel rooms. The bathroom was also a nice big space. The room was nice and quiet too. It was great to have free parking included in the rate. We enjoyed the proximity to all the shops and restaurants in the area. The only downsides of this hotel were the pool is pretty small and was on the cool side, the whirlpool was closed for repairs and was not mentioned at check in, and no free coffee or continental breakfast. 2 of our group of 5 did receive free breakfast as a part of our room rate, with a charge of $9.95 for any additional. The breakfast looked very good and they offered to make anything that wasn't out such as an omelette.

Quick first-time trip to Kansas City. Had less than 24 hours to sightsee, but loved the location of this charming Marriott. So easy to park (free) at the hotel and walk around the area. Great shops and restaurants nearby. A little far from the airport, but worth the travel time. Stopped at the Public Library and WWI museum on our way to the hotel.

Important: the photos are not updated on Tripadvisor!! These are NOT the standard issue primary color Courtyard dated rooms!! This was an AMAZING Courtyard, with a recent stunning renovation....I am calling it "Spanish Deco", the entire Plaza area is based on Spain, so that's the Spanish part, and the Deco comes from the fact that this hotel is in a former luxury apartment building from the 20's (I think). There are many historical details throughout...the trim, the grand lobby windows, even the historic milk lockers in the hallways! (If you have ever stayed at the Boston Courtyard that is in the former theater, this has a similar historical vibe)

PROS:
Great location, pre war thick walls, spacious room (517), easy parking in back,

CONS:
The sheets came off corner of bed...a very comfy mattresses, but need deeper pockets on the fitted sheets. Also, the stairs in the front entry area can be a challenge, but there is an accessible ramp in the back. The is a very cheery outdoor patio in front overlooking the park. And others have mentioned the
fun Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald music in lobby!

Notes:
Someone mentioned there was no covered access in case of rain, but the front drop off area (while small) does have an adequate awning.

Nikki and Trey very helpful in lobby and Starbucks. Others not so responsive, however, it may be that they can't hear when someone is at the desk, since there is an office behind. They really need an old fashioned bell to ring at the front desk!!

The staff is so friendly at first you suspect their friendliness and helpfulness but they are really nice! The lobby is awful and so are the bathrooms they need urgent remodeling. The tv is great and in general the rooms are sad and tired Will not stay there again.

This is not a standard Courtyard by Marriott. It has only been a hotel for seven years and the building is on the National Register of Historic Places. Our welcome was superb and the receptionist kindly delivered a cart to the car park door to make it easier to unload the car.

The hotel was previously an appartment block and its renovators have done a pretty good job turning it into a modern hotel whilst retaining original features such as milk closets in the corridors. We had a suite which was ok, althought the furnishings were dark and purple and not to my taste. .The bed was comfortable although the pillows were hard, synthetic and springy

An unexpected extra is the free laundromat - including detergent and softener. The machines are good quality but (and it does seem churlish to complain about something free) the dryer is not very effective and takes an hour (on medium) to dry a cotton polo shirt.


Location is superb, adjacent to upscale Country Club Plaza with lots of restaurants and shops

This is a great place to stay right on the Plaza in KC. We enjoyed staying in an historic hotel with great views. The access to the plaza and all the shopping and dining options was great. The only thing that could have made this trip better would be a courteous and knowledgeable staff. The workers at the front desk knew very little about the area and gave poor and incorrect advice, including telling us that all the restaurants were 'closed' when we checked in just after 10 p.m. We decided to wander out anyway, and were glad we did, as we found many restaurants, just steps away, to be open and serving food until 1 a.m.

Room Tip: I have stayed here multiple times and am yet to be placed in a room I did not like.

This is a great, historic hotel in an excellent neighborhood. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the room was large. The WiFi internet service was terrible - probably the only real negative. I would definitely stay here again if in KC.
