My spouse and I stayed at the Sheraton Suites for a getaway weekend in Kansas City. The primary considerations were location and price, and the Sheraton came up well on both counts. While you can stay downtown for less in some instances, the Plaza is a better location for a weekend visit. As for price, it was more than the Hyatt Crown Center but less than the Hilton President downtown.
The Sheraton is perfectly located at the west end of the Plaza's main street, 47th. The farthest reaches of the Plaza are 6 blocks away, making everything very walkable. Our room was nice, although smaller than a comparable Embassy Suites room. Bed was quite comfortable, room was neither updated nor outdated, but pleasant. Parking is very simple, just do the $9 self-park rather than valet. Decent pool, although the location on west side prevents direct sun until afternoon. Staff was fine, neither outstanding nor a problem. A solid choice, particularly due to location.
Three recommendations beyond the Plaza:
1) National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial (Crown Center area) is a great new addition to KC. A well done museum that will inform both history buffs and casual observers about the War to End All Wars.
2) The Cashew, 2000 Grand St. Our favorite bar in KC, a great site for drinks, laid back yet classy. On a good weather day, the "garage door" windows are opened and the beer tastes great. Very friendly staff - check it out before going to more touristy bars in Westport or Power & Light.
3) EGGtc, 51st & Main (south of the Plaza). Very good breakfast spot, with assortment of omlettes, pancakes, Benedict variations, etc. Get there before 9 if you don't want to wait too long.
