“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

I chose the Westin at Crown Center for my Honeymoon. Both my wife and I are students and did not have the time to leave the Kansas/MO area so I chose KC. It was a great choice! The beds are great! Rooms are clean! Staff was wonderful! I would recommend to anybody traveling in the Kansas City area.

My family and I had a great stay at the Westin. We go each year over the Thanksgiving weekend to "kickoff" the Christmas season. We had a great time seeing the lighting of the Mayor's Xmas tree as well as shopping at the Crown Center shops. We also visited Union Station and also the Sea Life Aquarium. All of this is in walking distance and we never had to drive anywhere once we checked in!

Room Tip: During the Christmas season a view of the Mayor's Christmas Tree is a great view. Along with th...

We've been staying at Crown Center for over 30 years and still have a great time when we visit. We were in Kansas City for my wifes birthday and had a great time. The Plaza is not far and is a great place to visit with shopping and great resturants. Rooms and service are excellent and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great place to stay with many ammenties. Resturants are all excellent and we have got to know several of the staff and even though we only get to KC three or four times a year they always remember us. The Street Car Named Desire is one our favorite places along with Milanos. Happy hour at Milanos is great.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors have great views and would recommend a corner room. However there standard...

We stayed here 2 nights after spending 2 nights in the Downtown Sheraton in St. Louis. This was much nicer. Beds were obviously very comfortable, but the toiletries were nice, the shower was better than expected, and the furnishings were very good for the price point.
It wasn't cheap, but it wasn't terribly expensive.

In terms of location, it's about 1 mile to the Power and Light district.
We took a taxi one time, and then walked the other 2 times. It was actually a good walk and we didn't feel like it was a bad area. But we were a couple of guys, and if my wife had been with us, we probably would have taken the taxi each night just to make her happy.

The customer service was very good.

The layout of the hotel is a little weird, but I think that is because of the shopping around it.
I would go here again, but I wouldn't have minded being closer to the Power and Light district.

I love this hotel, and recently had another excellent visit. Staff is very friendly and accomodating. rooms are very comfortable, and often with a great view of Kansas City skyline.The adjacent mall and facilities are wonderful and fun. The location is central and very, very convenient. Great Bar as well!

THANK YOU!

Everything about this hotel is first class. I was in Kansas City for a busiess and pleasure weekend and this stunning hotel made the trip a pleasure. I had the opportunity to order breakfast in the room . . . . really recommend the smoked salmon, bagels, avocados and tofu (really, tofu...who knew?). Check in and check out were effortless and the location in downtown Kansas City made everything on my itinerary simple. I would love to stay in this hotel again . . . soon!

The hotel is in a good location for getting around the city. The food in the restaurant was poor and the service was very bad. If you want to get something to eat, go into the Crown Center Mall where there are much better food options.

I can't understand how a hotel at this level still charges for in-room WiFi when it's usually free at much lower-end hotels. I guess they relay on the corporate expense account crowd.
