AAA Four Diamond award winning hotel, and the only hotel in Power and Light entertainment district. The hotel was originally opened in 1927, closed for many years. Re-opened in 2005 after a 45 million dollar renovation. This stunning hotel is truly one of Kansas City's grand hotels. The hotel completed a full property renovation in 2016.

Overnighted here on a trip across the US at the rec of my brother. This is a super-nice property, well-appointed w/o being garish. Room was very comfortable, towels fluffy, mattress not "slept on" from over-use. Wish I could have enjoyed it longer, but had to get on the road the next morning. Coffee pot in-room was great, room service adequate given my late arrival and the soon-to-be closing kitchen. Know that Parking necessitates a very short walk outside between garage and hotel property. Felt totally safe here.

Hotel's Favorite
Really cool Hotel in the heart of downtown! I believe his name was Derick sp? that checked us in...he was awesome so friendly and helpful with my room as I had chose my room online for a great view to discover I didn't pick the room I thought. He quickly fixed the issue and was so helpful with all of our questions. It was only a one night stay but will definitely be back if given the opportunity.

We were placed in a 5th floor room with no hot water. The staff was in no hurry to fix the issue and indicated they just opened the 5th floor and no one turned on the water heater. Wouldn't you think a manager, housekeeping or someone would have tried the hot water? Cleaned the bathroom with hot water? We were offered a $2 coffee ticket for taking cold showers for 2 days. Horrible service. Not a manger to be found. Bathroom also had mold around tub and toilet. we've been going here for years and pretty sure it's the last time. We got a "yeah sorry" from a manager via email after feedback was left. No mention of the "make it right" guarantee....

Got text prior to arrival asking if I needed anything. Treated to upgrade suite. No pool on site, small work out area. Tons of nearby really good restaurants. Clean, quiet and comfortable room, huge bathroom. Excellent lobby bar, nice hot grab and go breakfast at coffee shop. Gorgeous historic property well maintained.

The hotel itself was absolutely beautiful inside!!! I had spoken with somebody prior to our arrival and was told that things would happen. We were supposed to receive an upgrade, adult beverages that evening and a coffee brought to us in the morning. We did not receive any of these items. That evening when we went to order room service nobody would answer the phone although I called and left several messages. had to walk downstairs to talk to somebody down there and they did not seem too bothered and said they did not know why they were not answering. Room service finally called me back and I placed my order. When they brought it up it was messed up and missing an item. By the time they brought it we were already done. Over all the experience wasn’t great but the bed was extremely comfortable and the hotel was beautiful. I just wish we would’ve had a better experience there and been given what I was told would be. I would definitely recommend this hotel though because it was so clean and nice!!!
