We booked the Royals package which included a shuttle to and from the games. The stadium is quite a distance from the downtown. We loved the fact that we could enjoy the game with a beer or two and not have to worry about the hassle of driving, paying for parking etc. We used the complimentary shuttle several times during...

Had to book last minute. Due to unforeseen issues. Check in was smooth. Desk personnel was very helpful and friendly. Explained all the amenities available and surrounding activities as well. Will definitely stay there again. Very pleasant and clean.

It's true that some of the furnishings and decor are a little shabby, but they are up front about that from the very beginning, and everything is clean. The current owners have only purchased the place recently and are still in the process of upgrading. The happy hour was really nice, and the drinks offered were surprisingly varied for free... More

Hi, Kimmiewimmie! Thank you SO much for the kind words -- we really appreciate it. Glad you enjoyed happy hour, but make sure you hit breakfast the next time you're in town -- the omelets are amazing. And thanks for the feedback about the towels. Happy Travels! More

A bit of construction taking place...we didn't have hot water in our room, so they relocated us. We enjoyed the complimentary cocktails. Only complaint: I got up to utilize complementary gym passes, and walked to the gym to find they were unstaffed at 6am, and I wasn't able to use pass for another 3 hours

Our stay in the hotel was so bad that I couldn't manage to go in to all the details that occurred over the 3 nights we spent here. However I will say that from management to wallpaper, this place was the worst hotel I have every stayed. The owners are supposed to be Cornell Alums and I am embarrassed for... More

We're sorry to have disappointed you -- that's the last thing we want to do. The RenFest room you were originally staying in is not yet complete, and the sofabed will be removed from the room to accommodate other festive RenFest furnishings.

Spent a long weekend in KC just for fun. We booked the KC mob room and really enjoyed the themed decor of this nice room. History adorns many of the walls throughout the hotel. The location was central-about 5 to 15 minutes drive to sports stadiums, museums, shopping, tours, and great BBQ. Shuttle service was optional. The breakfast was very... More

Stayed in your hotel Labor Day Weekend for the MGRA rodeo. It will be exciting to see when this property is renovated. As a hotel Chief Engineer I understand the process.
