I stayed here for the Garmin Marathon and found it to be a pleasant experience overall. I had a bit of trouble with the reservation (I tried to reduce the # of nights I was going to be there from 3 to 2 and they rescheduled my entire reservation for a week earlier. The hotel was sold out so it was a little nerve-wracking getting it fixed.) Also, when I checked in it was peak time for the marathon runners to check in and they only had 1 person working at the desk. This staff member did an amazing job under the circumstances. Her supervisor walked by and I said something about "this poor woman has to work by herself with 7 people in line" but the supervisor kept walking by.
Other than that, the hotel was very clean and conveniently located. It was a mile from the marathon and it was in a shopping plaza for easy access to stores and restaurants. It had a nice pool and hot tub but I didn't use them. The lobby area was nicely decorated. They had a breakfast in the morning but I didn't try it. There was ample parking around the back. I was on the top floor (3rd floor) and it was quiet. The room itself was clean and the bed was comfortable. Free wifi was nice, and they gave a good discount for the marathon. I would recommend this hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Easy to find off I-35, we're 23 miles from Union Station in the heart of Kansas City. We regularly appear on the CNN/Money magazine list as one of the "100 Best Cities to Live". With neighboring Overland Park, this is a fast-growing area with a real sense of community. If you're here on vacation, how about a horse-driven stagecoach ride? Whatever your reason, we're glad you're here and hope you'll make this your comfortable and convenient base. Pets are welcome, too. Kansas City is 22 miles north. Here you might want to start your sightseeing in "The City of Fountains" with the American Jazz Museum, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, or National World War I Museum. Across the street from the latter, have a look at restored Union Station with its 95-foot ceiling and 3,500-pound chandeliers. It's a vibrant destination with changing exhibitions. Alternatively, scout out your favorites among the plentiful water features around town. Some visitors come here for the 200+ fountains alone with graceful statuary and synchronized music. Don't miss Country Club Plaza, an upscale shopping district four miles south of downtown, with Spanish-influenced design. Just one mile farther, and you're in Kansas. ... more less
