We booked this Holiday Inn Express because of its close proximity to KU Medical center. I had surgery and my husband was able to easily come back and forth to the hospital. He enjoyed being able to have a continental breakfast and cup of coffee each morning before coming to visit. He also was able to work from the hotel... More

This location was easy to find, parking was a cinch, staff were friendly and helpful as well. The rooms were clean and well designed. Door closers were very powerful and unless a guest is careful, it always slams shut, but that's my only complaint.

We stayed here because it was very near the KU Medical Center where my husband had an appointment. (They also gave a discount for staying there and going to the Medical Center). The room was very nice and the location was perfect for us. The exterior of the building is very cool. There are several restaurants in buildings near by.... More

What a difference location makes. Noisy neighbors above and beside my room. 7/11 right outside my window with customers pulling up all hours of the night music blaring loud conversations absolutely terrible. Night manager of no help would never ever stay here again. 7-Eleven is closing July 27, 2016 so at least that nuisance will be gone but they have... More

This is definitely a newer hotel with modern decor and is very clean. There are storefronts located on the first level so the hotel lobby is on the second floor. There is a pool and a fitness facility (neither if which I used during my stay). The breakfast was better than most and includes made to order pancakes as well... More

This hotel was very clean and new looking. It's convenient for several reason, free breakfast for starters. The hotel is attached to a 7-11 store and a 5 guys burger restaurant and a pizza place and Ihop is about 15 feet away. Great for those who don't want to drive too far for food.

We stayed here for 2 nights while my dad was in the hospital. It is literally across the street from the KU Medical School Administration Building. You could walk to the hospital in about 5-10 minutes. The staff was very courteous and the facility was very clean. Jackie and James at the front desk were very nice and accommodating and... More

The pancake mix was depleted and only one yogurt was in the cooler. A little girl wanted pancakes and I didn't see anyone. Two people were in the food preparation area, but it can't be seen when standing in the serving area. I went to the desk and said I didn't see anyone and told him what was out. He... More
