Most of the reviews on this site give the Overland Park Marriott a "4" rating and that is about right. I would say it's a good hotel, and you likely won't go wrong staying here, but a little short of excellent.
The hotel itself is just off the freeway. Inside, it's a pretty standard Marriott. The hotel is about 30 years old, but has undergone renovation short of a complete makeover. Some of the finishes in the public area have a plastic feel to them, but the bathroom countertop was granite and the furniture in the room was wood, modern and attractive. There was a 32 inch or so flat panel TV and a variety of cable stations, as well as a larger desk with easy charge ports.
The hotel is not far from the convention center and access was easy. There is ample parking outside, which you would expect in a somewhat suburban location such as this.
They have two or three restaurants in the hotel, including a bar, a Japanese restaurant and another called "Epicure" which serves American fare. There is also a Starbucks downstairs.
The staff was extremely friendly, which is a huge plus.
Marriott charges either $13 or $16 per day for internet access (the price depends on speed), which was excessive, particularly since I was paying over $200 for my room. I only needed limited access, and was able to use the free access in the lobby.
While they had a Speakman shower head in the shower, which was nice, the plumbing seemed kind of weak and the toilet in the bath gurgled almost randomly on and off throughout the night.
Between the State of Kansas and the City of Overland Park, the taxes add up to about 17% of the total. This isn't the fault of the hotel as any hotel in the same city will have the same tax rate, but add that amount (plus internet if you want it) into the price.
There are many hotel choices in Overland Park. The Overland Park Marriott is a good choice.
