The Hotel at Kirkwood provided just what we were looking for: a quiet, nearby get-a-way with a splash of style. The Hotel is situated on the Kirkwood Community College campus between a modern looking attached convention center, equestrian center, and parking lot, all of which are affiliated with the community college. However, it felt more like we were in the open country than on a college campus (horses roaming outside one set of windows). Within the hotel, the modern decor in the lobby and rooms provided an elegant energy that was not too overwhelming. All areas of the hotel were immaculate; not even a pillow out of place. When we arrived at the front desk, we were (without having to request) given a free upgrade from a King to King Deluxe room at no extra charge. A nice touch! Our 3rd floor room was very quiet and spacious, with all the amenities one would want, including large glass encased shower, flat panel TV, L-shaped couch, bathrobes, spacious rolling desk, and a Keurig coffee maker with several coffee/tea selections. The particular (Sat) night we stayed, it felt like we had the hotel to ourselves. No wedding parties, conventions, etc. If fact, we were the only ones at the bar, lobby, and outdoor patio! Breakfast the following morning at the Class Act Restaurant (located within the hotel) was equally delightful. No lines or waiting. The wait staff (students) were sometimes tentative but otherwise refreshingly courteous and attentive. There was an occasional 'drop' in the kitchen, which is open to the dining room. Nevertheless, the food was excellent, with very generous portions and attractive presentation. All in all, the hotel and restaurant were delightful and therefore can be highly recommended.
