Don't forget anything in room after check out.


May 24, 2015

Beautiful hotel very very busy. Staff was nice and it was very convenient for us. We travel to kc every month and we were looking for a new hotel new location this one was perfect. However when we left checked out I forgot my camera battery and charger plugged in.. silly me how could I forget to grab it. I called them immediately an hour after we left kc.. gad to leave a vm on Fred from housekeeping vm.. no problem I know Sundays r busy... so Tues rolled around still no call called again spoke to a nice girl named crystal again had to leave vm on Freds vm again. Thursday rolls around still no call again I called spoke to crystal she stated she would send them an email. Friday rolls around still no call so sat I decided to call them again.. I call again ask for higher up management magically I'm transferred to Marie from housekeeping she apologies and says she will go look and call me back. Here it is Sunday and I still haven't got a call back. I'm pretty frustrated at the lack of customer service they have for after their customers leave. I'm not sure if I will ever go back and stay their again. Unfortunately it was a great location for us. I will go buy a new camera. To me you should at least take the time out for your customers people like me come back and back if the service was good.. it's customer retention to make us want to come back and stay with the hotel.

Poor Quality


May 16, 2015


I have stayed at many Crowne Plazas and this one falls far short. After check-in, we arrived to a worker cleaning a mystery stain from the carpets. Shocked at our arrival, and sincerely apologetic, he assured us there would be little water on the carpet; it remained wet till we left the next morning. Strike one.

My fiancé and I had rented the room for New Year's Eve as a special night out in KC. We dropped our stuff off, then returned later that evening to find: the toilet was broken, the hand towel holder was broken, the wet bar faucet was broken, the AC filter compartment was broken and continually would fall open and get in your way. Strike two.

This was unacceptable. This was, however, New Year’s Eve and we worked through the negatives for our special occasion. I reported the problems at checkout, and was assured the manager would contact me to address the issues. Months later, I have never been contacted. With IHG, and as a Platinum Elite member, I have come to expect a certain quality of service. That guarantee was not met, nor defended, by the management at this establishment. No one should pay for the room I was given. The lack of professionalism at this location makes the hotel untenable. Strike three; you’re out.

This room should have been comped, or the equivalent reward points added to my account. End of story.

Downtown Construction


May 14, 2015


Crown Plaza Downtown Kansas City is a very nice hotel! I would completely recommend it any other time, but when we stayed there this month there was construction that started at 7am Saturday morning. We had a hotel so we could sleep in and relax and enjoy our room. We were not able to sleep or relax and ended up checking out by 8:00am. I understand construction downtown is necessary, but should not start before 9am on a weekend, especially when adjacent to a hotel.

Dear Nelson000, Thank you for choosing the Crowne Plaza Kansas City Downtown for your recent trip to Kansas City. Your feedback is very important to us. I understand how frustrating it is to be woken up by construction noise and how disruptive it can be. We are continually working with the crews working near our building to begin and end at times during the day that will have any guest impact. I apologize they started so early that day. While I understand we did not meet your expectations during this last trip, I would love to welcome you back in the future to have a true Crowne Plaza Experience. Regards, Ashley Blair Guest Services
