“Super Fancy”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I absolutely love this hotel! Everything from room cleanliness to staff friendliness, this is the place to stay in Wichita. We came here for business and it was one of the best places we stayed. On our first trip we stayed in the Hyatt which is really close and thought it was so fancy and would accept our government rate so why not. The Hyatt was beautiful and so nice but they charge for absolutely everything including wireless internet which is annoying. When we were coming back my co-worker stumbled upon this hotel and said the reviews were better and they didn’t charge for all the extras. We thought we would try it out and was I glad we did. The rooms are just as nice and fancy as the Hyatt but the overall experience was 10 times more enjoyable. Drury includes wireless internet, breakfast, and the “kick back”. Their breakfast is actually good including pancakes made in front of you, eggs, biscuits and gravy, organic granola, and tons of other choices. I can’t quite remember one of the woman’s name, I think Michelle maybe, I should have wrote this right after we went there but got too busy and now forgot but she was amazing. Super friendly, always remembers everyone and talks to you as if she really cares. The kick back is awesome, free drinks and snacks, how much better can this place get! You read a lot about Costello in these reviews and while at the “kick back” I saw a really friendly guy with everyone making sure everyone was great and said “I bet that is Costello” sure enough it was.

The exercise room was big and had a large variety of machines. They all looked rather new and in really good shape. Every machine has a remote for the same TV so it doesn’t matter where you go you can control the TV.

Also being from Seattle, we are all a little "green friendly", I loved the fact that instead of wasteful little plastic airplane bottles of soap, shampoo, and conditioner they have re-fillable dispensers in the shower. I know for some that may be a turn off but I think it was fantastic! I think little things like switching hotels to this method could really make an impact on the amount of waste that hotels produce. It seems like it would also lower the cost of those items to the hotel which could in turn be passed off to the consumer or for added amenities like the “kick back”.

I would definitely recommend this hotel and somewhat sad my work in Wichita is over. If there was ever a reason to come back to Wichita I would choose this hotel in a second.

We stayed at the Broadview Hotel Dec. 22 and 23. Hotel was super clean and very comfortable. The breakfast and kickback were both fabulous! The Hotel is conveniently located in downtown Wichita. The lobby is super classy and resembles something from New York City. The staff went out of their way to make sure everything was just as we wanted.

Every staff member we encountered had a smile on his/her face and was eager to assist in any way needed. We had a slight issue in the accommodations of the first room, but the manager personally seen to it that we were moved to another room. We packed our things and the staff moved our belongings to another room while we were away for the day.

The rooms are spacious and, if on the back side of the hotel, have a great view of the Wichita area. The only down side we found with the rooms was the beds seemed to be soft. My husband and I felt like we were on a trampoline each time the other moved and the pillows were uncomfortable.

Breakfast was delicious, although it would have been nice to mix it up a bit. After our third day we were ready for a little something different. However if you can handle scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, pancakes, potatoes, cereal, oatmeal toast/bagels, an assortment of pastries, milk, coffee and juice each day then you will be set. It is quite the spread.

We were only at the hotel one day during the Kickback, but it was certainly enough to make a meal of. This particular night the offerings consisted of salad, baked potatoes, hotdogs, nachos, pasta, meatballs and soup. A bonus was that our family was able to join us for both breakfast and the kickback for a minimal fee!

On-site restaurant is available. It is a seafood and steak kind of place. The prices I seen looked to be reasonable.

Accommodations also included a guest laundry with washer and dryer, which came in handy with a potty training 2 year old, and an indoor pool with hot tub. The hot tub was a comfortable temperature; however the pool needed to be a bit warmer for the winter months. It was a little to chilly for our 2 and 3 year olds; even I was a bit cold.
