Stayed at KC Plaza Embassy Suites during a weekend get-away with the kids. It was ok. Older property. Rooms were clean and nicely furnished. Small bathroom with the sink outside in bedroom, so when someone was sleeping, you had to go into bedroom to use bathroom and/or sink. As others have noted, the doors to balcony were sealed. With 2 young children I immediately realized it's because of the large spaces between the railings, a child could easily fall through, so I had no problem with the sealed door. They were also doing some work on the front entry, so you had to enter though the parking garage. Parking was a bit tight, with an old underground garage with small spaces. Breakfast was ok. VERY crowded on weekend mornings after 8:30. They did have a cook making made to order omlettes and eggs...if you wanted to wait in line. The rest was the usual hotel buffet standards: eggs, bacon, pancakes, toast/pastry station, fruit, cereal, juices and coffee. Staff was pleasant but we had to call the front desk twice at 4am to quiet down some REALLY loud, drunk people above us. They ignored our first request to send security up to quiet them down. When I called the 2nd time and was much "stronger" in my request, they did send someone up and we were able to get back to sleep. It's a great location to the Country Club shopping area, although it was too cold to walk with the kids when we were there, it's an easy walk in nice weather. The indoor pool was nice, but it needs to have some mildew cleaned off tiles and the water was a little cold for the kids to swim very long. Price was ok. All in all, the hotel was decent, for an older property, and we liked having a mini kitchen and 2 rooms. However, I'd probably try another hotel next time just to see if there is something better in the same price range. I wasn't overly impressed nor totally disappointed...it was neutral as far as a hotel experience goes. It was clean and comfortable, which is my most important criteria. If you want to stay downtown, see my review a month ago on the Holiday Inn Aladdin. It's a different type of hotel (more of an "adult" hotel) but I was much more pleased with that hotel.
