Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TLaw14 Nice hotel! Little over priced, but nie!
The staff were very helpful and polite. Room temp was good, and the location is great for walking around downtown. For the price, you'd think there would be a free breakfast or something, but nope. And you have to pay for parking. But other than those two things, the room was great! Clean, temp control, awesome shower head and coffee in room. I would probably stay here again if I'm in the KC area in the future!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KC Twice Friendly Front Desk, Great Location
Hotel was very conveniently situated, and front desk staff very friendly. Decor is dated and unprofessional, too bad in such a wonderful building. But it was clean, the beds, sheets and towels nice. Valet parking was very easy and fast. Noise level in room was poor. I could hear the babies crying, phone conversations etc from other rooms by way of the heater vent. And don't ask the bartender for a wine bottle opener; he's very rude and won't loan you one. Ask the front desk! The breakfast I had was terrific. I would stay there again.

Darrien was excellent from check inn process to guiding things to do around. Room AC was noisy, fixable by property owner/manager. Excellent stay overall

Enjoyed the stay. Quiet, peaceful. Brick wall view was uninterrupted. Very good location for getting around Kansas City by car. Wedding reception was fun and the dancing was great. The staff at the Aladdin was pleasant and efficient; always helpful and polite. I would stay there again if in Kansas City for business or pleasure.

The Hotel was friendly except for the bartender. The room was clean, and everything was as expected. The price was exceptionally good for an urban accommodation, and the location was convenient for my business purposes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EmeraldEyes Average stay in an historic property
The Staff is very attentive and the hotel is located in the heart of the city. Very convenient. The building is historic so the exterior looks a bit old and the rooms are a bit smaller than other properties, but the modern renovation in them is beautiful. There were no major issues on this trip and what small things did happen the staff took care of without an argument. I would advise anyone who is going to use the hotel iron to check the Teflon plate for dirt/residue first so you do not ruin or stain your clothes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Local12 The Best Service !!!!!
We were most pleased with our recent stay. The front desk and lobby staff were so helpful as we had a very early start to our travel day and they went above and beyond to provide an earlier check in time than the normal 3:00 time. As this is an older property the room configuration had a smaller bath than newer hotels but our room was very comfortable and we liked the character.
We will be staying here again on our next visit to

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hogfans Super Location~walking distance to lots of places
We wanted to be walking distance to the Power & Light district & we were! Very close to lots of restaurants, bars & shopping... Also was a good place to stay for Rockfest... It is pretty far from liberty memorial park but it was still in walking distance for us... we walked there & back... The room was very nice & comfortable but we could never get it to cool down...It stayed at 72 degrees the whole time, which wasn't horrible but would have liked it a little cooler... they gave us free Champaign at check in which was nice!!! Definitely would stay here again! Also, girl that we called with questions beat the online rate & got a better deal that included parking!! loved that! great customer service!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bt1234 Very nice downtown hotel
The Holiday Inn Aladdin is a historic art deco hotel tastefully renovated to modern standards. It has a great location downtown, the staff is friendly and attentive, and it is a very good value. I highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PT1987 Great downtown hotel!
We greatly enjoyed our Memorial Day Weekend get-away at the Aladdin Hotel. The hotel is a nicely restored and updated property on the National Register of Historic Places. Easy to reach from the interstates, it is right in the heart of downtown, across the square from the Convention Center and within easy walking distance of the many restaurants, shops and other entertainment of the Kansas City Power and Light District. Valet service was fast--although all three times we called down to have our car brought up, the word never got to the valets and we had to hunt one down to get our car. Food in the hotel restaurant was exceptional and affordable, but even though we were the only ones in the restaurant at the time we ate the waitress was surly and inattentive. Overall, however, we greatly enjoyed our stay and most certainly will stay there again.

We stayed one night for a wedding in KC and it was a great experience. The room was small but comfortable and the staff were great. We had requested our room be in a corner and they got us as close as they could. Definitely a great place to stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RJL1 Too noisy
Always hard to time a stay but the hotel was overrun by partiers, keeping us awake until 3am. I'd already changed rooms once in order to accommodate a group of ladies who wanted adjoining rooms. We wish you had quiet floors where there are rules on noise and security can assure compliance.
Even with this difficulty, we were very impressed with the staff of the hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Filco good
Stayed a few nights with no difficulties other than the bed not too pleasant (hard on the hip bones), and too many led lights in the room at night from the TV, air con, clock, smoke alarm, etc.
Free wifi is good, although somewhat slow.
Wish there were bins to recycle things in, hard to find in Kansas City, not very green!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cgolds Wonderful experience all around
I have stayed here twice on business and enjoyed a drink in the martini loft, had dinner in the restaurant, ordered room service and used the fitness center. My stay was very comfortable and the staff was more than accommodating each time. I would highly recommend this hotel for the staff, first, but also because it is so well appointed and decorated. It is in an excellent location, has wonderful amenities and the food is excellent. Only a few short blocks from the power and light district! You will not be disappointed!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kristym Too Noisy - Lovely room - but too small
This was a last minute reservation and the only room they had left was a single king. Room was lovely, but WAY too small as was the bathroom. Room must have been located close to an air conditioner because it was very noisy and hard to sleep. The light on the thermostat was so bright it illuminated the entire room. Nice design touches throughout, but most important for a stay is GOOD SLEEP, which i did NOT get. I was expecting a free continental breakfast, as is the norm at other Holiday Inn's i've stayed, but it was not included. You could get a piece of toast and an apple for $9.99.
One plus - the hotel was within walking distance to the convention center. It was nice being close enough to walk.
This was alittle out of my price range, and for the lack of sleep, I will probably chose another hotel next time I'm in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Black_mask Good place to stay
Stayed in the hotel over three weeks while I was on a business trip. Nice place. Staff is extremely nice and always look to make your stay comfortable. Room is clean and well kept for guests. While the breakfast buffet is nice, selection is very limited and they repeat the exact same menu every day...... wish they could mix up a little.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jodisue cold...brrrr
It had a thermostat, and supposedly you could adjust it, but I got back from a concert at Midnight, and my room was 66 degrees when I had it set at 72. It never got above 66 degrees no matter how high the thermostat was.
I was told on checkout that I was supposed to CALL and have the heat turned on by the maintenance staff! Seriously do not think this is my responsibility.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Xio S Buena ubicación, falta de limpieza
La ubicación es excelente, sin embargo faltó mayor limpieza en la habitación que me asignaron (había cabellos en el baño).
La puerta no funcionaba bien por lo que era difícil cerrarla.
No cuenta con estacionamiento propio, es necesario ubicar y pagar por un lugar para estacionar el coche.

Even though building is very old it has been renovated and turned to make look more modern. Staff is very professional and courteous. Overall place is nice and clean. Only minor issue I have is the coffee machine in the room is really bad and doesn't work. I stayed in hotel for a month on a business trip and got 4 different room during the time and coffee machine didn't work in any room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ande31744 Worst hotel stay I've ever had
This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. The facilities themselves are okay - dated, but that's acceptable since it's a restored vintage hotel, but the main problem was the staff's poor job at controlling their hotel. We tried checking in at 2pm -normal check-in is 4 - while walking by to the local auditorium for a basketball game. Our room wasn't ready -which is completely understandable since we were early. The clerk informed us that she could move us to a different room but NEEDED to keep us where we were. We left things as they were and headed to our basketball game. We came back to checkin in around 4:30. Check-in went fine and we found our room on the 15th floor. The room was small, but completely acceptable considering the buildings age. Later that night when we came back from dinner, we noticed EXTREMELY loud music coming from all around our room. At 11:15 we finally called the front desk - they told us there was a fraternity formal in the building and they would "call their chapter president" to get them to quiet down #which is an incredibly stupid idea - good luck getting one of them to control the other 50#. 20 minutes later nothing had changed, so I call again - this time they assure me that they'll physically send someone up to my floor to fix it. 20 minutes later, still no change so I call for a third time - this time they assure me that they're kicking people out of their rooms and that it will end soon, they also credited back the cost of my stay in full. 30 minutes after that, still no change. I finally put on my pants and shoes and start looking for the source of the music and banging noises. It turns out that there is a reception room on the 16th floor, putting the dance floor DIRECTLY ABOVE OUR ROOM. After complaining at the front desk I recieved no answer as to why they would EVER put someone in the room directly below the dance floor. I just can't believe the hotel would be stupid enough to use that room when they have a dance scheduled, especially putting someone in it that is not affiliated with the function they are hosting. My favorite part is that IF they were kicking some college kids out of their rooms on the 15th floor, they were choosing the wrong people.........it was the music ABOVE my bed that was the issue #which I couldnt place because it echoed EVERYWHERE#. I tried complaining at the front desk at checkout, but the kid at the counter just gave me a dumb look.
My favorite part is the first clerk who emphasized that she "had to keep us in that room" for some reason. So is that the room we were supposed to get, or did other people end up with our room and we got stuck in the one they knew would be a complaint with the dance floor above it? Either way it is completely unacceptable.
DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL - it's overpriced, dated, and the staff is worthless. If you must stay here, request a floor in the middle of the building.

The hotel was quaint and the staff was professional and friendly. Our room was just beautiful and the decor throughout the hotel was stunning. We felt so special when they offered us Champagne at check-in!
We had a wonderful experience visiting downtown KC for the first time. Wish we had more time to explore the area around the hotel as it offered so much.

Recently traveled to KC to enjoy the new P&L District and chose the Holiday Inn Aladdin as my home base. Had a great room on the 12th floor that gave me a wonderful view of the city from a perspective that I hadn't had before.
Got a king size bed that was so comfortable. Enjoyed a pre night drink at the Martini Loft and had a great breakfast at the Zebra Room.
When my travels bring me back to KC, I'll choose the Aladdin first.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steve1098 Nice stay except for fitness center
The staff were friendly and very helpful.
I did not eat, so I do not have a review for food.
This is a nice old character hotel in a great Power and Light location. My overall experience would be one star higher if the gym was fully functional. The aerobic machines needed tuneups, and the weight machine did not work. I let the staff know, but I was there only one night.
