I stayed here on a "girls' weekend" trip to Kansas City, and I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. Older hotels always make me a little leery, but this one has been re-done really well. The staff was very friendly in helping give us directions and dining suggestions, and as the hotel is right in the Power & Light District it is within walking distance to a lot of fun places.
If I had to be picky, my one complaint was that our room was not made up (we had a 2 night stay). The day after our first night in the hotel we left for the day around 11:00 a.m. and made sure to take the "Do Not Disturb" sign off our door, but when we returned at 5:00 p.m. the room wasn't made up. Someone knocked on our door at 6:00 p.m.(!) saying they were there to clean the room, but by that point we were getting ready for dinner so we told them it was too late. Not a big deal, because the room was very clean with plenty of towels, but it is always nice to have things fresh.
Overall it was a really nice place and I'd definitely stay there again.
