I was very impressed with this place. Since we were traveling with two small children, we opted for a suite, which was a wise choice. There is a door separating the bedroom from the living area, so it was easy for my wife and I to stay up later after the kids went to bed and not worry about waking them up. The kitchen area had a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans, plates, utensils, etc., so this would be a very good place for a business traveler who had to stay for an extended amount of time.

The free breakfast is a nice bonus, and there is a great selection (eggs, sausage, bagels, cereal, toast, yogurt, muffins), so you won't leave hungry.

I also like the location. It's close to I-70, so it would be a very good choice if attending a Royals or Chiefs game. It's about a 20-minute drive from downtown KC, which wasn't bad at all. Plenty of shopping and restaurants in the immediate area (Smokehouse BBQ across the street--yum!), including several within walking distance.

In short, I was very pleased with this place and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Get the suite if you have kids. It didn't cost much more than a regular room, yet had a lot mor...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Trip Advisor community.Our rooms are much larger than the standard hotel room, and it allows "beathing room" when you travel with your family to the Independence area. Safe travels!

A friend and I were on a road trip and rented a two bedroom room. It was very spacious and the layout was that each bedroom and each bathroom were separated by the kitchen and lounge area. We had a lot of privacy. I will look into renting two bedrooms at Residence Inns in the future when traveling on a guy trip.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights during a campus visit nearby. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, they even provided menus for nearby food delivery places, and made copies of school papers. My room was very clean, and I loved that it was a suite so I could close off the sleeping area when others came to visit. One thing that made me a bit sad was that the texture on the bottom of the bath tub was so rough it was uncomfortable; if I can't soak in the tub, then make it a shower. I was also a bit disappointed that there was no hot tub to relax in, and the evening "reception" was unimpressive (very small selection and no alcoholic beverages like a popular competitor) and was only available for 2 of the nights I was there (it's only available 3 nights a week, at least during the timeframe I visited).

We only stayed one night as we traveled on a cross country road trip, but we were overall very happy. I was welcomed by a very friendly young lady at the front desk. She recognized my Marriott Rewards "Elite" status right away, was chatty but not too much, and overall made a great first impression.

The room was clean and nice, just did not have the newer Residence Inn updated furniture and trim yet. The price was fair, too. All in all a good choice if you want a decent room, great service and a fair price.

We spent one night at the Marriott's Residence Inn, Independence, MO. We arrived mid-afternoon and was warmly greeted at the front desk. Check in was quick and the room was clean and comfortable.
This Inn is located behind a Fairfiled Inn and not easy to find if you do not have directions. We use the gps on our cell phone and had no problems.
The morning breakfast was very good with a open and roomy layout. Food was above average for a Residence Inn. The attendant was always on duty and helpful.
We would stay at this Residence Inn if the opportunity comes again.

I got here late and left early, but was impressed with the hotel. Nice big rooms. The front desk was friendly on check-in. A good selection for breakfast. I would stay here again and recommend it to others. I didn't have any trouble finding the hotel, but it does sit behind the Fairfield Inn.
