“Very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed October 18, 2008

We just spent a weekend at this hotel and had a great time. The hotel clearly just redecorated because we could smell the new carpet. It seemed to have all new furniture. We had a fridge and microwave in our room. The room was standard size. We did not use the pool or jacuzzi. The hotel is only a few blocks from the Crown Center...a little too far to walk though.

Stayed at the hotel for 9 nights for a conference at the Hyatt Crown Centre. Check inn was easy and I was upgraded to a jacuzzi room which was delightful. I found the hallway to be very unkept with wallpaper falling off and the carpet very worn, but the room itself was much better. Good comfortable bed, lots of pillows and a working fridge and TV. Ate the breakfast most days, food was fine, nothing flash but quite acceptable. I particularly liked the paper every morning and the free computer with internet access as well. Would definately stay there again.

This was a pretty average Fairfield Inn. There were some needed renovations going on in March. Pool was very small. Room was clean, on the small side. I thought the location was perfectly fine, but could see how some people not used to being in "the city" might be just a bit uncomfortable. Convenient location about halfway between downtown sites and the Plaza. Everything was fine.

If you are planning on using the pool request a room in that building or one on the floor that has the interior crossing (I think 3rd floor) it was a chilly walk between the buildings when the kids were wet!

We have stayed here twice, both times were wonderful. Very good price for a location close to the Plaza and the Crown Center, we have walked to both places from the hotel. Fairfield Inn was very clean, staff was very friendly also. Price was cheaper through hotel's website than through any travel websites we could find at the time.

Looked for a hotel near Kemper and the Plaza, but didn't want to spend the money on the Westin or Hyatt. Found this hotel had been reviewed with good results on Trip Advisor, so I booked a room. We stayed 3 nights.

Was very happy with our room. Everything was very clean. Carpets looked quite new. Beds were comfortable and sheets were surprisingly nice. Extra towels were readily accessible from the front desk.

As for location, Crown Center is literally down the hill, Plaza is about 5 minutes away and Kemper was about the same.

Other reviews mentioned sketchy parking, but I felt quite comfortable leaving my car in the lot and walking to and from it at night due to good lighting and security standing at the door (they were there every night).

We ate the free breakfast one of the mornings and it was fine. Nothing spectacular, but everything was fresh, the waffle maker worked, and what else should you expect for free?

I will certainly stay here again and would recommend this hotel to others.

I needed a downtown Kansas City hotel for two days in early August, and found the Fairfield Inn available for much less than other options. I booked a room for two nights and got what I paid for.

The room was large and there was a jacuzzi in the bathroom, which I did not expect (and did not use). The room was clean, but worn. The A/C was so loud that I had to put earplugs in to sleep; it was during the heatwave and I could not sleep without the A/C. The common areas were dark, and worn. The whole place had an overused feeling.

The front desk staff were helpful, and the free breakfast was nicely presented and ample.

The location felt a little seedy. I felt especially aware of the prominently displayed warning that the hotel is not responsible for damage to cars parked in the lot.

  • Liked — The room was large
  • Disliked — The location
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask for a room that faces away from Main St. to avoid street noise
