“Nice Hotel - No Shops or activities close by”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This hotel is part of the Harrah's Casino complex. Our room and the hotel public areas were very clean and nicely decorated. The staff were all friendly and helpful. There was the typical hotel/casino buffet, reasonably priced, and a couple other places to eat. The food was what you would expect. We were there during the week and only saw one small sundries type shop open. There were no shows at this hotel. This hotel charges for Wi-Fi, really? We also stayed at some Mom and Pop hotels in MO, and even they provide this service for free.The road this hotel is on is isolated. You cannot walk to shops or restaurants. We took a taxi to downtown Kansas City one day, which cost $22 for two people, one way. The hotel did not mention there was a bus, that stops at the hotel, that will take you downtown for $2 per person. We saw the bus drive up while we were getting in the taxi. We took the bus back to the hotel from downtown, and that was convenient and a lot less expensive.

This hotel does not offer a shuttle to/from the airport. There is a shuttle bus from the airport that cost about $30 for two people, way less than taking a taxi.

Have stayed here a few times, each time equally enjoyed. Comfy bed, clean, quiet room. Wish all hotels we have stayed in were as nice. Staff very friendly and helpful. This was a combination of business and fun for husband and myself.

Room Tip: We like higher rooms for the view. The rooms by the elevator are convenient (especially to get to th...

Stayed here on while on a road trip out west. This is a first-class hotel and casino. It is laid out very well, has an abundance of places to eat. The rooms are well-equipped and clean and the casino is also very nice. A little off the beaten path, I guess, because the casino has to be on the river in Missouri, but the GPS took me straight there and it was easy on, easy off the interstate. The only negative is paying for WIFI. Good grief! On the other hand, you don't need to be on the Internet when a nice casino is round the corner. This is a very nice property.

Hotel rooms were nice enough, but didn't really have any "free" amenities other than access to the casino and parking. Breakfast was rather expensive, and casino itself was a little depressing mid-week. Location is a little out of the way if you want to do anything other than go here and gamble.

Location is good, rooms were nice, the breakfast buffet was average, and the slot machines were generous... But make sure you ask before you partake in any extra services... Wifi costs something like $12 a day. Need to print tickets? It's $1.50 a page, and if the site isn't on their "free list," Internet access is $10/10 minutes. Talk about a racket... We weren't even mad, we were impressed with how well they hosed us. 10 minutes and 9 pieces of paper cost us $23.50. Thankfully they didn't charge us to print a receipt.

Thank you for your feedback on your stay. We are happy you enjoyed your room but our business servies were costly. We do offer free boarding passes, mapquest etc but because the center is an outside company, we do charge for items such as printing, faxing etc. This is standard in most full service hotels and throughout our brand. We do hope your visit again and thank you for your review.

Really nice hotel! Several restaurants on property. We took our kids to Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun and stayed here because it was the cheapest on Expedia. Had adjoining rooms for 2 nights. No problems! The kids are 12, 16, and 20 so we snuck down for an hour each morning while they were sleeping to gamble. Really a fun long weekend vacation!

Room Tip: Our room was a queen with a pullout couch so we moved one of the kids into our room when they were a...

The wife and I were on vacation and we stayed one night at Harrah's North KC. Since we made reservations late I paid somewhere around $200 for the room. Room was nice but that's not the problem here. To log into thier wifi they wanted to charge another $10. Now this may sound petty but it burns my you know what that we paid over $200 for a room, dropped more than I will admit in their casino, and they want to charge $10 for freakin' wifi? I was shocked. I've stayed in much nicer and I've stayed in dives - The one common thing amoung the other hotels is the wifi was free with the room. I'm sure they won't miss my business since I am only one guy but I will not spend another penny in the future with this hotel or casino. I have had great experiences with Harrah's in other places but the North KC bunch should take a look at how much $10 worth of wifi could cost them in the future. In all fairness we had no other issues at this hotel. I'm still angry.

Thnak you for your feedback on your stay. I am sorry you are upset about our wifi charges. When setting prices and charging, we are competitive in the casino market and most Harrahs's, maybe all do charge as well. I would be more then happy to discuss this with you and you can call me 816-472-7777. Again, sorry you are upset and we hope you change your mind and visit us again.
