Chateau Avalon Hotel & Spa
Ranked #8 of 23 Hotels in Kansas City
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We celebrated our 10th-wedding anniversary at the Chateau Avalon. It was beautiful! The front desk/lobby staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a cake that needed to be refrigerated and since we did not have a refrigerator in the room, they offered to put it in one of the hotel's refrigerators for us. We stayed in the Presidential Suite. It was fun trying to "find" the bedroom. It was hidden behind a bookcase. The jets in our tub didn't work very well though. They kept going on and off at random. The breakfast was very good, plenty and delivered 15 minutes before requested time. We also did the couples massages. Our masseuses were very professional and did a good job. There are many great places for photo ops. Parking was great. I wish they would've had a restaurant. They did provide a free shuttle to several nice restaurants though. The hotel was quiet, even on a Friday night. It was very relaxing.

The perfect place to go for a nice romantic getaway. The front desk is fantastic. Definitely a place that we will return to as it makes a great weekend with its proximity to everything else in Kansas City.

I can't express how nice all the staff was. All the desk staff were pleasant as well as the gentlemen who shuttled us to local dining and the kitchen (or cleaning staff ?) I encountered. The room was very clean and the view was also nice and peaceful. Breakfast was surprisingly delicious, especially considering it was a free amenity. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better stay. I believe the hotel was completely booked and they were very busy, yet they were always cheerful. Our 10th wedding anniversary is coming up and we have already booked our rooms at Chateau Avalon. FYI, we stayed in a basic (classic) room (I believe it was called "Havana" on garden level) and it was good enough for us :) The upgraded rooms look wonderful though. *the travel date I selected isn't accurate but shouldn't matter anyway.

Very romantic and fun for couple to enjoy a weekend together. Themed rooms offer some role playing. We enjoyed our weekend in the frontier room, and have stayed in the Roman room as well. Recommend any room that peeks your interest.

Rooms are DIRTY. Had on a pair of new white socks they were BLACK after walking around in room. Two HUGE spiders crawling around in our room. Gnats flying around everywhere. We found a mouse turd in the bed sheets. The floor was soaking wet around the hot tub upon arrival. They would not give extra towels. We had a package deal that included Champagne, they sent it to the room with cheap plastic cups that were about 1 inch tall so it was pointless to even use them as they only held 1 swallow of liquid to drink. The chocolate strawberries had mold on them. The sinks, shower and tub took 30 mins plus to drain so it was pointless to use them.The massages were TERRIBLE, the worst I ever had. I got stuck with a man for my massage. They could have asked me if I wanted a male it was super uncomfortable. He just rubbed his hairy arms all over me the entire time. Disgusting! Chateau Avalon has made many downgrades. We have stayed here in past before and enjoyed it but this time was HORRIBLE! We will NEVER go back again. the prices are ridiculous! We paid $398.00 for 1 night. We could have stayed in an OCEANFRONT W/ BALCONY and KITCHEN for $110.00 per night in Florida. See a problem here??? This place is Definitely NOT even worth 50 bucks a night!

Chateau Avalon offers unique themed rooms for a romantic getaway. A gorgeous fountain greets you as you drive onto the property. When you are in the hotel, it has the feel of being far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life even though it is located across from the Kansas Speedway, Nebraska Furniture Mart, Sporting KC soccer stadium, T-Bones minor league baseball field, and Legends shopping and entertainment area. Restaurants abound in the area. We stayed in the Chateau Avalon this weeken to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was our second stay at this hotel. This time we stayed in the Tahitian Treehouse. Both rooms we stayed in were small, but the space was well utilized. This particular room would not be for everyone as the bedroom is located at the top of a rather long flight of wooden stairs and the ceiling in the bedroom is slanted, like an attic or loft ceiling. We both bumped our heads on the ceiling when we leaned to look down to the first floor. The bed sets against the wall, so it is not convenient for that person to get up during the night. The closet and bathroom were on the first floor. When the downstairs was cool, the upstairs was sweltering, so we had to "learn the ropes" of how to balance that. A large fan sets at the end of the bed. The only comfortable place to watch television was from the bed. You can see the television from the main level where the only two chairs are located, but you have to look up and view it through a net. It is not a room to kick back and watch television, unless you want to do it from bed. The only table is very small. Having said all that, the wood sculptures, murals and the lighted Jacuzzi lined with the flicker of tealights was awesome. The bed was covered with rose petals and a single long-stem red rose. It was very comfortable, and we both slept very well. Guests are served breakfasts of their choices in the room at the time they choose. Breakfast is topped off with a HUGE, yummy cinnamon roll. Complimentary coffee, tea, and cookies are available most of the time in the lobby. There is a wine bar. A beautiful patio area complete with tables, chairs, flowers and lights provides the perfect ambiance for relaxing. Massages are available on site for an additional charge. The staff is friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. While the Tahitian Treehouse might not be our first choice of rooms, we highly recommend the Chateau Avalon for a special, adult-oriented getaway.

We stayed in this hotel, and glad we did. We were really excited to stay here, and it was everything that we had expected. We stayed in a room that had a double shower and it was great and the tub was super fun. We WILL be back. My wife even did a college paper on the hotel, she was so impressed. It was great fun and the best hotel i have stated at. Ever.

Room Tip: The Tuscany Room is great!
