Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TC32 Great Location
The hotel is in the middle of dining and shopping for Kansas City, and there was free parking for our car and a shuttle to take us and pick us up nearby. The staff was friendly. The facility itself is older but was well maintained. We were there for a group function and the use of hospitality rooms and hotel areas was well done....There was a group dinner that I didn't attend that kinda went bad, but , since I think those things are pretty bad anyway, and I wasn't there, it doesn't enter into my rating (The problem was not enough wait staff and trying to do pre-ordered dinners in a buffet style...Bad plan) The beds and pillows were comfortable, the room was clean, and the hotel held up its part to make sure we had a great time. The cost was very reasonable for what we got.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HumbleJim56 Some excellent, some poor experiences
Overall mixed. First they stuck us in the old part of the building. That room smelled musty and the toilet was sluggish to flush. Also, there was no way to get the suitcase trolley up three steps to our room as we got off the elevator. The room we were moved to in the newer section was nice, and the man they sent to help us move was very accomodating and refused a tip.
The breakfast buffet was mostly bland- the pineapple chunks were delicious, but the scrambled eggs were the most tasteless ever. A friend (at our military reunion) confided that the gravy for the biscuits-and-gravy reminded him of library paste.
For our evening banquet, we had paid for a plated dinner but were served a buffet. The Army wife who had worked with the hotel coordinator on the dinner had nothing but praise for her original contact. However, that lady had to go back to Hungary on an emergency, and her replacement informed our gal that the hotel couldn't possibly afford the staffing for a plated meal, so we got a buffet. The food, however, was excellent. As I said, overall good with a few trouble spots.keeping it from an excellent rating, IMHO.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PJBall Room choices
My biggest complaint was the fact that I HAD reservations for 3 KING rooms and 1 double room. At check in time, we were able to get only 1 ROOM as a KING. I am not sure what good it did me to get my reservation for 3 king rooms!!! The desk staff were very pleasant to deal with but not getting the rooms that I asked for somewhat set the "tone" for the day. We were give $20 off for 1 room as the toilet overflowed and had to use all the towels in the room to mop up the water and we requested more towels but never got them. Luckily, we had one towel that didn't get used. They did come and fix the toilet. For what we paid for the room, I felt that breakfast sure could have been included in the cost. Probably won't stay here again.

In early fall the nights get cool. The heating unit didn't work. The fan was loud. The A/C worked fine, but the room was cold all night long.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lindatravels Convenient location and good shuttle service
My husband and I stayed in October for 3 nights. I was disappointed that my room was not cleaned each day until I requested it at 3:30 or 4 pm. We enjoyed a nice breakfast each morning. The shuttle service was convenient. I enjoy the location for its proximity to 2 museums and The Plaza shopping area.

We have already told several friends that if they stay in Kansas City to stay at this particular Holiday Inn! Every single staff person was so kind and polite. We do not have a single complaint! Very clean and very presentable! We would definitely stay there again! Thank you to all staff and management for a well run hotel and your hospitality!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dian71 Location; breakfast restaurant
If you want a refrigerator in your room, request it at your booking. When I got there, there were none left so they must not have very many because I went in on a Thursday before the week-end crowd. Close walking distance to Nelson-Adkins Art Museum and to Country Club plaza shopping and restaurants. Breakfast 1st morning was very unorganized at 8:00. People seated in other people's seats who were at the buffet. We stood and waited until they figured out what they were doing. I walked down to the Quik Trip a block away the next morning to get breakfast items.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel is in a great location, near shopping and a highly recommended Kansas City BBQ restaurant. Room was comfortable. Breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff very friendly. Only two complaints: carpeting throughout hotel made it look drab; we stayed for three nights - the cleaning person came very late in the day when we were occupying room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DJ288 Excellent Plus Equals SUPERB!
Reception: Staff members are friendly ~ competent ~ and therefore very helpful to hotel guests ~ Noteworthy during our experience were Ms. Tracee; Ms. Ruth; and
Ms. Mayuri. In the dining room ~ Ms. Mary's service was
superb. These staff members and others made us feel very much at home.
If we were to visit Kansas City again, we would again be pleased to stay at the Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravisK3 Had a Great Time!
I was sent to Kansas City MO for a conference and the hotel I was supposed to stay in was booked.
So I looked around the area and found that the Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza was right down the street and the rate was almost half the price.
I figured that it might not be as fancy with gold plated faucets and marble floors, but it would still be a decent place to stay.
So I arrive an the Country Club Plaza,
Immediately I was warmly welcomed by the staff at the front desk.
The young lady who assisted me was extremely nice, and had me checked into a great room with in minutes. She offered me the option of the hotels local shuttle if there was anywhere I'd like to go for dinner. Alternatively she told me about the restaurant there at the hotel.
Since I was tired of traveling I chose to have dinner there in the bar while watching Monday night football on the HD tv's.
The bartender was super nice and he had his hands full with other customers. Other customers did not slow him down, he was patient and took his time telling me about what they had to offer. He had recommended the bacon cheese burger, and boy do I thank him, I have to say that was one of the best burgers I have eaten in a long, long time. His service was great, he was attentive but not annoyingly so, he had the whole bar under control.
Getting back to my room, I was pleasantly surprised of how clean and neat everything was, the room was big, the sink area had a granite countertop, everything was just like it was supposed to be.
The room did not have any funny smells or stains anywhere, the internet was fast, and the HD TV was nice to catch the rest of the game on.
After waking up in the morning, I went to the Lobby to check out, again I was greeted by another warm smiling face, she had me checked out in no time.
I had purchased the breakfast option when I booked the room.
When I went to the restaurant, the service again was impeccable.
The waitress welcomed me and brought me to my table, told me about what they had to offer and brought me an orange juice.
The continental breakfast buffet was nice, everything was cooked just right and tasted great; Nothing was iffy or off.
One thing I noticed when I was eating, there was another family that had arrived for breakfast, and the little boy didn't look like he was having a good time. The waitress saw that too and approached the young man in an extraordinarily nice and fun manner. She had brought him I think an option of fun cereals to try, she had him laughing and in a good mood almost instantly.
Things like that are intangible, that goes to show that the staff really does care about the guests and the experience. I witnessed that not just once, but with everyone there that I had any contact with.
Upon leaving the hotel, I asked the front desk if the shuttle could bring me to the conference at the other hotel, they said no problem. I was there in minutes and had a great day, I really couldn't of asked for anything more.
To sum it up,
I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza, great rooms, nice staff, awesome food and quality service all around.
I had a great time!

Even though the check-in area was very crowded when we arrived, we felt as though we received individual attention from the staff. Over all very nice stay. Rooms were not as clean as anticipated. But the staff at the front desk were top notch.

We stayed here just for one night for a friend's bachelorette party. It was a great location and the hotel was very nice. The staff was absolutely amazing! Very friendly and nice. We were not in the room much but it was nice and exactly what we needed. We got the breakfast in the morning and it was delicious. It was around $10/person which seemed a bit pricey, but it was worth it! Very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Business1Traveler Two nights at Country Club Plaza
Room decor was old, worn, and tired. I had to jam a pen cap into the drain in sink to keep it slightly open so it would drain. Was worn out long ago.
Breakfast was a greasy unappetizing expensive plate of food that was way overpriced. Bar had 4 red wines listed on the menu and was out of two of them.
Bucket in walkway to eleveators and towels around hall window on 5th floor when it rained.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beaharm Uncomfortable room in great location
Sometimes you have to book a room based on needing to be in a specific place and that is why we ended up at this Holiday Inn. The worst pillows, a dark dreary room with virtually no options for food or drinks. We were IHG members and still ended up with a room next to the ice machine and the stairs with the joy of listening to the people coming home from the bar all night after the PLAZA art show.
This hotel needs an overhaul before we ever consider it again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AngryBunny Nice Staff. No internet.
Older property. Rooms were average for this hotel chain. Staff was very nice and helpful-- thank you! My only real complaint is that the internet wifi signal was non-exsistant in my room on the 5th (top floor). Basically I had no internet. I am afraid this is a deal breaker and will look elsewhere next time I am in KC.

Our special reunion of 50 ladies, was held in KC, our hotel was picked sight unseen. Yet, every member and I do mean every member of the Holiday Inn at Country Club Plaza staff went out of their way to provide anything and everything we needed. I can not say enough about this hotel and its staff except my hat is off to them. I would recommend this hotel any and every time anyone goes to Kansas City, MO.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NicholeM Floors were filthy!
The room and hotel are ok/average. The location is fairly good, although they say they are on the Plaza, its really not. The was our first time staying at a Holiday Inn. The staff was pleasant and friendly. The rooms, halls, and pool are outdated and a little run down. Wallpaper peeling from the walls, unpleasant older smell in the hall, etc. The huge negative for us was the floors. Our feet and socks were black after walking around the room. My extended family stayed in a connecting room and between us we had two infants. When they crawled on the floor their hands, feet, and knees were black. I would not stay here again for this reason.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza last week.
The staff was extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating - from your front desk staff, to the restaurant/bar and the shuttle drivers.
The only thing that I was a bit disappointed in was that the lounge didn't open until 4:30pm every day and there were many of us that would've enjoyed having cocktails earlier since it was a getaway trip for us.
Other than that, it was all good.

We were greeted with friendly smiles and helpful staff. We requested a refrigerator at check-in and it was in our room before we arrived to it. The staff let us know about the FREE shuttle that we used a couple of times. It was so nice to know that we had a ride at night when we were ready to come back after walking for hours at The Plaza. The pool was clean and refreshing. Would stay here again mainly because of the good room rates along with the great hospitality and location. The reason for the low rating on room and comfort was that the room had a musty smell every time that we walked in. It was not unbearable, but not pleasant.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cynthia24 Clean room and excellent location
My husband and I recently spent a night at the Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza when we visited Kansas City. First of all, the room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable with both firm and soft pillow options. We asked for a Plaza view and while it was not a fantastic view, it was still very nice. Also, we were within walking distance from the Plaza, so we didn't have to worry about having to find parking when we went there for dinner. The breakfast was what I would expect from that sort of hotel, and while it was nothing amazing, there were still plenty of options and the service was very good. The front desk even called us to make sure that our room was to our liking, which we thought was very nice. We would not hesitate to stay there again for our next trip to Kansas City.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VB04 Quite, comfortable bed, clean
Room was great! Located on the 5th floor close to the ice machine. No noise, though - very quite.
My company paid for this room for three nights and also the breakfast was paid through my company. Breakfast was a full buffet with eggs, sausage, bacon, gravy, biscuits, oatmeal and fruit. Coffee was great! Wish they had some nice pastries. I like to start my breakfast with a danish pastry and a cup of coffee. I'm an early riser and breakfast was not open until 6:30 a.m. but they did locate the coffee maker outside the dining room so early risers could enjoy. Great service in the dining room.
Would highly recommend this hotel - close to the Plaza with lots of great shopping!

I was there for The Sandra Stillwell Presents event and everyone who works there went out of their way to help us out with any requests we had. The rooms were wonderful the beds comfortable and the food was great especially the meal we had barbecue. The people working our meal functions went out of their way to make sure everyone had what they needed. We all enjoyed our visit to Kansas City! Thanks!
