After visiting Kansas City 3-4 times a year for three years, I've finally found the hotel I'll return to again and again. This hotel is just a few blocks from Country Club Plaza, and a short walk to Westport. The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. The room was clean, and the linens and towels were in good shape. There's a nice little courtyard off the back of the lobby. The free breakfast was a cut above the standard cereal-and-waffle maker: it included scrambled eggs, sausage and hot biscuits. Parking was free and ample. I look for good value in hotels when I travel, and this hotel met all my requirements. I look forward to returning.
