No special treatment for Platinum members


January 19, 2015


I was not satisfied with the way they treated me as a platinum member. The reason I stick with IHG hotels is for the special treatment I usually get when I check into/stay at the hotel. I was placed in one of the worst rooms in my opinion. Bottom floor with no view and right next to the elevator. You could clearly hear elevator traffic from inside the room. The room itself was gross with stains all over the carpet, and a shower that didn't work properly. The hotel did not appear to be busy, so not sure why they stuck me on the bottom floor. There was plenty of parking in the garage, the lobby always was quiet, and I stayed on a Monday and Tuesday- slow part of the week. Also the dinner restaurant was not open as advertised. They advertised to be open from 6-10pm and when I went down to eat at 8:30, they were closed. I would not recommend this hotel. I get better treatment, nicer rooms, and cheaper prices from Holiday Inn express hotels.

Great front desk service


January 13, 2015


I was very thankful for the helpful staff which answered a variety of question I had regarding laundry, getting a good room, entertainment spots, parking...etc.

It's rare to such an honest genuine smile that the front desk ladies showed. Plus they gave me a room with a fantastic view when asked out of wishful thinking.

Nice Hotel Stay


January 12, 2015


Perfect Service. Not so perfect plumbing and background noise. On a night with temps below zero degrees outside, hotel was nice and warm. Unfortunately, sound of heating system caused a restless night. Tip - don't flush the toilet at night. Will wake everyone.

Old Hotel with few real amenities


January 11, 2015

Hotel guest should never pay for parking, The rooms needed some updates. The couch cushions were old and deflated and no longer fit the couch. The fridge did not get cold on the highest setting. The tub was an insert of some kind so when I stood in the shower my head was just inches from the ceiling. An I had a 22nd floor suite.

The cleaning staff left my room spotless. Everyone was very friendly. Just a bit too little for the large cost of the room.

KC taxes for tourism are ridiculous too.

Dear MDaveM, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments regarding your recent stay at our hotel. I appreciate your candid comments and have passed them on to our management staff. I would like to thank you for recognizing our housekeeping staff and the great job they are doing as well as the friendliness of our staff. I truly believe we have some of the greatest employees in the industry. I would like to address your concerns as well. While paying to park may seem silly, it is a common practice among hotels in downtown locations across the country and our price is very reasonable comparatively. I have asked our maintenance staff to check the refrigerator in your room and they have taken corrective action to ensure future guest do not have warm food in the future. As for taxes, well, I wish I could do something about that but I have to pay them just like anyone else. Kansas City is undertaking a lot of construction and renovation and after all is said and done, it will be worth the additional cost. Again, thank you for your comments and thank you for choosing Crowne Plaza Kansas City Downtown. We are continually updating and making improvements, so I hope if your travels bring you back to the area, you'd stay again and let us know what you think. Sincerely, Ashley Blair Guest Services
