Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hayde12 Boogers on night stand and directory
My family and I stayed at the hotel and noticed boogers on the night stands near our bed. The one bed was facing t.v. while the other bed was facing the other bed making it impossible to watch t.v. unless you are on the other bed. The directory had boogers in it as well. In the middle of the night at 0300 there was a domestic violent situation in the room next to us and lasted a whole hour. We were never compensated nor appologized too. It woke my kids up and scared them half to death then they had a dance competition and had to be up at 0600. I asked for a late check out and the front desk said we had to be out by 1100 am due to weddings. I'm sorry, but I'm a customer too and I feel I should get the same respect as all the others. The beds were uncomfortable and lumpy. The only thing good out of it was being able to walk under to go to music hall convention center without going outside. Also, a valet guy performed magic tricks, which was pretty cool.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Opie614 Room for a queen... a very petite queen.....
I changed rooms twice. The first room was next to the air-conditioning equipment. It came on every 15 minutes..... I could get NO rest, so I asked to move rooms.
The next room was okay, until the ceiling started leaking. Engineering came by and immediately had me moved to another room. Whew! Just when it was time to go to bed, too.
The last room I was in shared a "straight-shot" air duct with the adjoining room. I could actually see their light from my room.... Sadly, those folks stayed up until about 1:00am chatting and having a good time. No problem there unless you need some sleep....
So finally I did the wise thing. I packed my stuff up and left the premises. Thank goodness, for the remaining stay in KC, once I left the Aladdin, I slept like a baby.
Nope, never to stay there again!!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carrie30 Amazing and hilarious staff, beautiful building, super comfy room
We were in town for a concert and booked this hotel so we could walk to the Sprint Center. The front desk and door staff were amazing! They helped me through some credit card drama and got my vehicle unloaded quickly, all while joking around and keeping us laughing! The door guy walked us to our room and helped with luggage after giving the adults in our party champagne.
Our room was comfy and super clean. We requested more bedding, which was brought up lightning fast, with a smile.
Breakfast was buffet style and had lots of options, even for picky eaters.
Check out was quick and friendly. All around wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend the Aladdin to anyone traveling to the area.

The staff was superb, especially Eunjolie (sp?) who provided us with a fantastic breakfast! Location great, right in the thick of it! The room was well layed out & beds were very comfortable. The front desk staff answered all our touristy questions.

It's great experience and i stayed for one week. Their service is good and the problem is breakfast. We had one day buffy system and in all other days we forced to order because they have not arranged because of less occupancy. Except this the experience is good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HottyToddy Sprint Center - If you are visiting . . . .
the Sprint Center for a NCAA tournament game, for example, the Aladdin HI is a nice choice. The Sprint Center and surrounding Power and Light district are within close proximity.
The hotel elevators are certainly not the fastest in the world but they eventually get the job done. The staff was ready to assist and the Sunday breakfast buffet was tasty and a good value. My wife would have preferred a small refrigerator and microwave oven in the room but I do not know where we would have put it. The room was small but again the location of the hotel and graciousness of the staff offset any minor deficiencies.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessandFun Great Location - Dinner was "ok"
I traveled into town for Dave Ramsey- and I love staying here. However, this trip was not as pleasurable as usual. I was hoping the spa was open, yet when I got there it was closed by 5PM. I was wanting a full body massage, guess I should have called ahead. So much for being spontaneous! Drinks in the bar were great - as always! The food, was alright; salad was very nice. The Chicken Marcela, was not very good at all. I ordered rice, it came with mashed potatoes, I wanted asparagus and all they had were streamed vegetables. The chicken was like rubber, tasted like a frozen dinner overcooked in a microwave. The carrot cake, was pretty good, very moist. I was able to leave my car in valet while I attended the conference, and came back to get my luggage. I appreciate that also. But hoped the food would have been better, has it has been before.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AJ66 Great Lobby Staff
The lobby staff ( check-in/doormen) were very friendly and helpful. The doorman was almost always at the door to the open door exiting or entering. The front desk staff were welcoming and efficient.
The room was a bit small, but adequate for sleeping and working if needed. Chairs were comfortable with adequate lighting for reading. The HVAC was a bit load but worked very well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tops1919 Great Value for Location
The service by the front desk and lounge staff was amazing. We were greeted with smiles and helpful front desk attendants. The bartender at the martini lounge was very friendly. This location is very close to Power and Light District. The distance from attractions makes this completely worth the price. Only problem was the noise level. We were lucky to not have any noisy neighbors, but could hear cell phone alarms from other rooms going off in the morning. The vents seem to carry sound very easily. The great service and location make this a very small issue. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others!

The staff was nice and helpful. The rooms were very clean. Would say its not best hotel that I have stayed in but it is a long ways from being the worst. I would say the bed was one of the better ones that I have slept on. Would recommend this hotel to others.

Beautiful lobby, nice staff, free champagne at check-in was a nice touch. The breakfast buffet was convenient and good. Went to a concert at the Midland and it was a short 2 block walk.

The staff of the Aladdin is second to none. They all went above and beyond to make the stay of our convention group rememerable in what was a very hectic week for all of Kansas City.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lisi Quaint but thin walls and restaurant service is poor
They have updated hotel so it has old charm but nice beds, bathrooms, etc. The service in the restaurant is slow and unmovitivated. They need service training in a big way. The exercise equipment works but it is cracked and old and noisy. There was a party on the top floor of the bldg and I was on the 10th floor (I think top floor was 12 or 14) and I could hear the bass beating after midnite. annoying.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DMCollins Not up to standard, and spare the attitude.
The room was a little run down, which was disappointing. The tub was in need of new grout. The carpets needed a better job of vacuuming in the corners and along the edges. Bright paint and furnishings do not make a hotel a "boutique."
But by far the biggest disappointment was the attitude of the staff member I encountered on the Sunday morning of my stay. At check-in Friday evening, I was given two coupons for breakfast because of my Priority Club status. Unfortunately I misplaced the coupons and on Sunday morning I asked if I could have them replaced. The man at the desk looked up my reservation and said I shouldn't have gotten the coupons to begin with, because I was booked at the government rate and insinuated that I wasn't there on business (yes, I was there on business). He begrudgingly replaced the coupons and said he would have to re-educate the staff on who was eligible for the coupons. I didn't need the attitude or the lecture. I won't stay at the property again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lizzieannie staff changed room
On checking in we discovered one bed was broken on the bottom corner and there was no diffuser on the vent so the air rushed down on us. The hotel was completely booked so nothing could be down. During our morning shower we stood ankle bone deep in water. We reminded the front desk about needing a change and why. The repair men showed up and insisted on fixing things right then. We were getting ready for a wedding so they left all of their lumber and repair materials in the room to trip over.
By mid-afternoon we did have a room change to a much nicer room. Sunday morning we were awakened by people speaking the F word very loudly. As it turned out our vent connected to another room and we heard that morning argument.
I had a wonderful manicure in the basement salon.
The hotel did comp our parking saying that is the best they could do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jcpete10 Excellent 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 KC.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lwr202 Used to be nicer
I have stayed at this hotel three times over the recent years. The property certainly went downhill this time and I will choose another hotel next time I am in Kansas City. The front desk clerk was very nice and efficient as was the restaurant. But the housekeeping/cleaning of the room didn't quite meet my expectations. As an aisde, the light in the bathroom is really low above the sink, and I banged my head on the light every time I entered the bathroom to use the sink! There was also an odd issue with the temperature in the bedroom compraed to the rest of the suite...I realized I had to shut the bathroom door to keep it the right temperature (go figure)! But mainly its the cleaning of the room that will send me elsewhere next time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rhcp What a mess
We were told our rooms would be available at 3:00. At that time we were informed that no rooms were available. As more and more people arrived to check in with no rooms available the lobby filled up with people who were getting angrier by the minute. What a mess We finally got into our rooms at 6:00
What a mess

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Heather83 Historic building...Service could be better
I stayed in a room with my husband and child for a wedding. We stayed 2 nights. The building is older, which is charming; however, the ventilation system is old too. When the guys in the room next to us got loud it was like they were literally in my room too! Friday night around 11:00 - loud.....returned from P&L at 2:30 AM - even louder! Sunday 4 AM - VERY LOUD. I don't think they even realized how loud they were. I asked for my room to be serviced several times and when it was finally done while we were out we received no new towels (that's annoying). Also there was a mix-up when checking in, so that took a while. The views from the hotel if you are on the side facing the city are amazing! LASTLY - the cards for the bride/groom were STOLEN during the reception and since there are NO CAMERAS on the ballroom floor they were never recovered...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HotelGuest Had trouble with noisy guests on our floor
The Aladdin is a beautiful, old, downtown hotel just blocks from the Power & Light District and the Sprint Center. The lobby was elegant. The second floor lounge, which overlooked the lobby, was a great place to sit back and enjoy a beverage. The complimentary champagne at check-in was an unexpected bonus.
As expected in an old hotel, the rooms were small. The beds were "firm," a positive attribute to some people, negative for others.
Our dissatisfaction was due to several noisy guests who disrupted sleep on our floor both Friday night and Saturday night. After the front desk was called, the noise quieted down quickly on Friday night. On Saturday night, the noise continued even after the hotel staff responded. Perhaps it was an isolated incident. Perhaps the proximity to the Power & Light District (nightclubs, bars & entertainment establishments) was part of the problem.
