An unexpected gem
Posted Oct 6, 2016
To be honest, I booked this hotel despite some bad reviews because it was a cheap deal, and was a little hesitant when I pulled up (first time in KCMO, so had no idea what to expect). The hotel has been undergoing renovations (more on that later), but when I walked in I was pleasantly surprised by the new contemporary decor. The front desk attendant was very welcoming and friendly, and gave me a free upgrade to the "BBQ Room" when she found out I was in town to eat my way through! She also gave me a list of recommended restaurants -- very helpful.
Along with the free WiFi and breakfast bar (open till 9:30am -- thank you!), the place has some unexpected amenities: a free drink at the bar during happy hour, a free shuttle service within 4 miles of the hotel.
Now back to the construction/ renovation, as it was my only negative experience -- everything was fine, until loud drilling started in the room next to mine one afternoon and went on for 3 hours. Any chances of a power nap were gone that day!
But overall, this place exceeded expectations by a lot, and I would definitely go back (maybe not in the BBQ Room though . . . having a picture of Guy Fieri staring at me from the wall got old fast, haha).
Thanks to the staff for a great stay!

We are still going through our growing pains, but the renovations are moving along...I'm afraid that photo of Guy Fieri is still in our BBQ room, but there are plenty of other non food related rooms to choose from next time!
