If you are wanting an active downtown location, the Marriott is not it. If you like a quiet location with access to other city sights then this may be your choice. The hotel is of good quality; the rooms are quite good; the hotel staff were very helpful; the food in the restaurant on site was average.

This was a fine hotel for business. The staff was friendly. It's very conveniently located near the convention center. The restaurant is just OK. the rooms were pretty nicely appointed. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here next time I was in KC.

Fine hotel. Nice rooms. Pity there was no fridge available. The bar closed at 1am despite being well used. Idiotic. The hotel could not use my card either so i had to pay in cash although the staff were terribly apologetic. The staff were wonderful all round it must be said. The restaurant food isn't bad for a marriott either.

Location of this hotel is right off the light and power district with many good restaurant options. We stayed here for a convention and the amenities were very good for that. Very efficient elevator system. The room was okay and typical for an older hotel. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. One concern is that it is located right... More

Very modern hotel with great amenities. The restaurant was great and the sports bar is the place to watch a sporting event. The room was very modern, plenty of USB ports and outlets for electronics. The bed was super comfortable and the shower pressure was great.

An amazingly excellent hotel! I spent six days/nights here, and in every respect my expectations were exceeded. First, the hotel itself was impressive: a large comfortably cozy centrally located ‘conversation pit’ gathering area (the ‘Great Room’) with bar, coffee stand and ‘quickie mart’ all adjacent; computerized elevators (despite a good-sized convention, I never had more than one other stop on...
