This downtown KC Marriott's rooms are furnished and their layouts are identical to many other Marriotts across the U.S.. My company is directly billed and I have no idea how the cost range for the rooms and can only give my impression without a cost-value basis. Hopefully, my description will help you decide if you think your projected cost will equal the value you're seeking! First, the area immediately around the hotel seems as safe and clean as other cities downtown with convention centers 2+/- blocks away. There are two towers at the hotel and to get to the tower across the street from the lobby you must ride yhe lobby elevator to the 2nd floor, walk a few yards and proceed over a skywalk for several yards to the 2nd tower, use your room key to open that tower's door, turn a couple of times, and use that tower's elevator to take you to your floor. To get to a room in the tower that the lobby is in, simply ride the elevator adjacent to the lobby to your room. I was in the first described tower across the street and do not know if there is a difference in each tower's rooms. The room average-to-large for a standard room with two beds. The rooms seemed semi-renovated: newer styled bed linens and accessories (lamps) but a little older style Marriott furnishings that were in good condition. The bathroom counter has been updated with granite and included basic+ amenities: shampoo, cond, lotion, & soap. The room was clean: no bath mold, carpet worn but not stained,etc. I found the bed comfortable, but I am easy to please in bed comfort. One thing I always notice is whether or not the bed pillows have a "sweaty head" smell and these did not (when they do, I grab the allergenic pillows from the closet). There was adequate outlets amd lighting for desk work. The room's window opened outward about four inches which is unusual to find nowadays. My room was 4 doors from the elevators and was quiet. The room had an ironing board & iron, as well as a coffee & tea with a maker. I did notice that the reception on my particular T.V. was somewhat fuzzy like older broadcasts before digital. I have posted pictures of my room from several angles before unpacking if that helps. I ordered room service twice and the food was good and well presented, and timely. I will say that at this hotel the extra costs of room svc at this hotel are 10-20% higher than other U.S. Hotels of the same caliber. I was here on a Tue/Wed and at 10:30pm the lobby bar was quite busy if you're interested in that. Everyone on the hotel staff was very pleasant--even those encountered in passing in the hallways. I would rate this hotel a 3&1/2-3&3/4 stars based on a JW Marriott or Ritz-Carlton being a 5. Hope the review and photos help you decide.
