I am actually writing this review from the Hampton Hotel in Lee's Summit (Room 205). I have stayed in this hotel before. Previously it was pretty standard for this level of accommodation.
I was pleasantly surprised by the current quality of the room in light of recent renovations. Beautifully redecorated - really one of the prettiest rooms I have ever seen at this price point. Hampton is not quite "there yet" but they may be giving Drury Hotels a run for their money in the future. Mini fridge and microwave in each room. The fridge is important to me. I am a litlte put out when I need to ask for a fridge and I am charged for it. Free wireless should be the standard, and Hampton has stepped up to the plate to offer this service. Too bad that other hotels charge for internet access. As a business traveler, the amenities mentioned above are important. They make a significant impact on my hotel choice.
Now for the cons on Hampton Lee's Summit. I am visiting during a summer soccer tournament - in the midst of summer thunderstorms.
I am certain that the "soccer families" received a group reduced price for their rooms. I, on the other hand, am paying a premium price for the room I will ultimately use for three nights. While the rooms are adequately insulated on the inside walls, there are hyped up soccer kids loudly running the halls late into the night.
This hotel has one elevator for three floors. Last night they shut the elevator down because it "over heated" No doubt there were soccer kids running back and forth on the elevator between floors. Have you ever heard of an "over heated" elevator being shut down in a hotel?? Excuse me?
The weather has been inclement (which means soccer games are cancelled or postponed) so the "parental units" have taken to drinking beer and wine and other libations (along with pizza, snacks and other carry out) in the small common area near the lobby - while their progeny run rough shod all over the rest of the property. Meanwhile the meager Hampton staff strives to keep those of us who may actually be back for businees sometime in the future, happy. I saw people trying to check in during this chaos -I felt sorry for the guests who had to try to negotiate an "Animal House" frat house party in order to get to their rooms. What is wrong with these people? Renting a hotel room for the night does not mean you can be loud, obnoxious, and generally rude. I will think long and hard before I choose to stay that his particular Hampton again.
I complained about these issues for three nights. To Hampton's credit, they did comp one night of my stay for the inconvenience.
Before you make reservations at the Hampton in Lee's Summit, Missouri, check to see if there are any teen-age sports tournaments scheduled during your stay. If so, stay ten minutes east in Independence or ten minutes west in Downtown.
Bottom line, this is a nice hotel for business travelers. The staff are as accommodating as they can be. DO NOT stay here during a summer sports tournament.
