Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Magnesium Comfortable bed, but cold floor
In our early December stay, we found the room quite comfortable, but were dismayed by the cold tile floor and the cold draft from beneath the heating unit on the outside wall. Seems there was not sufficient attention during construction and finishing to insulation, and caulking of cracks -- energy conservation in general. The breakfast was good and was a significant factor in our enjoyment of the place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Agentskully Express not so much but clean and great breakfast
Hotel has ample parking that looked newly added on. Felt safe, security guard walking the lot and good location. Elevators are extremely slow! Take the stairs once you get your luggage up to your room for the rest of your stay. Stayed in King Suite, the shower was very awkwardly shaped and small, it was nice all tiled walk in shower, but the shower head was at like 10ft on the wall. The water by the time it reached me was at a trickle. The most annoying thing besides elevator was the curtains in the room. You cannot close the room darkening curtain, it is bolted on both sides at 1/4 shut. Couldn't sleep in which for this mom, would have been amazing. Loud doors that slam.
Great breakfast. Really enthusiastic worker in the morning buffet but she only talks to you if you engage her. Only one worker for check in and he was overloaded with guests around 4:30-5pm. He was awesome though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JG47 Great beds and large room.
Stayed at this property last weekend and had a nice time. One of the elevators was out of order but other than that, we thought the property was very nice. It was clean and decorated nicely. The king suite we had was quite big. The bathroom was pretty nice, sort of basic but a great walk-in shower. I liked the tile in the bathroom. Will stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Juju73 A MOTEL I CAN ACTUALLY STAY IN 100% ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY ...SPACIOUS...OVERWHELMING CLEAN AND BEAUTIFUL...
I have Environmental Allergies and finding a Motel/Hotel that I can be in and not suffer has been a Nightmare in the Past 40 years. WE SEARCHED THE ENTIRE K.C.MO. DOWNTOWN AREA CLOSE TO THE CONVENTION CENTER AND THIS WAS THE ONLY MOTEL....I COULD ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO BREATHE AND FELT LIKE HOME.
100% SMOKE AND PET FREE TO SOMEONE LIKE ME IS SO VERY IMPORTANT FOR MY HEALTH, SO I AM EXTREMELY GRATEFUL FOR SOMEONE ACTUALLY CREATING AND KEEPING THE PROPERTY A TOTAL ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE PLACE TO STAY WHILE TRAVELING. I SLEPT LIKE A BABY....NO SMELLS...NO CHEMICAL REACTIONS, NO SMOKE, NO STINKY DOG/CAT SMELL AND BEAUTIFUL ACCOMMODATION . I CAME IN TIRED AND HUNGRY...THE STAFF WAS SO DELIGHTFUL, ESPECIALLY MS. MAGGIE...I FORGOT I WAS WITH STRANGERS...MORE LIKE FAMILY . SOMEONE SAID THIS WAS NOT A GOOD AREA TO STAY...I HAVE TRAVELED AND STAYED IN MANY CHAINS AND CITIES AND THIS PROPERTY BY FAR WAS THE MOST SECURE, WELL LITE, AND SAFE PLACES I HAVE THE PLEASURE TO STAY . I WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH THE SECURITY... AND WAS OFFERED AN SECURITY ESCORT IF I SO DESIRED. I WENT ON MY OWN AND WAS ONLY GREETING ONLY BY LOVELY PEOPLE AND SAFETY WAS NEVER A WORRY. OH MY BREAKFAST ON THE 2ND FLOOR OVERLOOKING THE AREA, I ENJOYED THE VIEW!
OH YES...HUGE ALLERGY FREE PILLOWS ON MY COMFY BED WAS LIKE HOME!
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST PROPERTY I HAVE EVER STAY AS EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dhertz Great room, convenient location
Had a great stay except two minor things...it was noisy on the floor...you could hear people talking and the doors slammed loudly....
Also, the shower head was way to high up...could barely reach it to adjust direction...
Otherwise, staff was excellent, food was good, bed was VERY comfortable...

I loved everything about this hotel. The front desk staff were very courteous, super helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean, well equipped and very comfortable. They have power outlets in all the right places too!
As an added bonus, the hotel is very close to an awesome Vegan restaurant (Fud) and down the road from a wonderful Vegan bakery (Mud Pie).
This will be my go to hotel in KC.
I highly recommend it.

Showed up early after a 17 hour drive and the front desl staff, house keeping team, and maintenance team all worked hard to turn over rooms for us and allow early check-in.
Hotel was clean, and in a great location if you are doing business at the medical center.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ryandk18 Great location!
Great location, directly across from the university. Having a 7-11 and a Five Guys Burgers on the main floor of the building was a nice feature. I also liked that access to the upper floors were limited to those with a room key.
Highly disappointed that, even though I am a Platinum member, a Gold member was given a corner room directly in front of me during check in. However when I checked in no upgrades or corner rooms were available. Makes me wonder if the points/loyalty to the brand actually mean anything.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jrofcr84 Excellent value.
We enjoyed our 2 night stay at this hotel. The building also houses a burger restaurant and a convenience store. Very secure. Breakfast is the typical chain hotel express fare, somewhat edible. We chose to eat elsewhere our 2nd morning. The hotel is new and the rooms are very nice. The walk in shower is cool but does feel quite narrow. Would definitely stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pbock81 Great Hotel!
If you are looking to stay in Kansas City, look no further than this Holiday Inn Express. It is very clean, comfortable and had a great staff. It was located in a great area with a 24 hour Seven-Eleven in the same parking lot among many other fast food and restaurant chains on the same block within walking distance. The hotel was close to everything we needed and it was a quick drive to "The Plaza" and "The Light and Power District". I was in town for a wedding and was unable to stay at the hotel where the bride and groom reserved a block of rooms because I booked too late. This turned out very favorably for us. When we visited our friends hotel that was blocked for the wedding, it was nowhere nearly as nice as this Holiday Inn Express, it was more expensive and the other hotel did not even offer the extensive free hot breakfast that this one did. I was highly impressed by everything this hotel had to offer. When I return to Kansas City, I will be sure to book again at this hotel. Thank you Holiday Inn Express!

Nice, newer Holiday Inn Express directly across the street from KU Medical Center. The room was clean with fairly modern decor. The TV was a little small (32" maybe). The pool was also small, 2ft 10 inches at max depth. Breakfast was adequate. It's located next to a Taco Bell and new 7/11 is in the same building. Secure parking is available for free. Being a platinum member, I was given a bottle of water upon check-in for my wife and me. No complaints here. Thanks for a good stay!

Very modern hotel convenient for downtown KC if you dont mind a few minutes driving to save some $$ on the room rate. Be aware people are coming and going at all hours to and from the adjacent medical centres.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daniel78 Near the Plaza/Westport
If you want a less expensive, great location near the Plaza/Westport this is a good option. We shopped during the day (less than 5 miles north of the Plaza) a we cabbed it down/and back to the Plaza for nightlife for $10 each way including tip (10-10Taxi service). Our room was clean and it was perfect for a weekend get away. Definitely would recommend!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LaceyS Clean and Friendly
Everything seemed very clean. Staff was very friendly. I have to say our only complaint was the "pool". We decided on this hotel partially because it had a pool for our son. It was seriously only 2 feet and 9 inches deep, tiny, and freezing. They would almost be safer not advertising that they have one. We did have a small noise issue when we tried to sleep, but once we called the desk they took care of it immediately. The breakfast hostess was hilarious! She learned our names and treated us like family the whole time we were there. Hope the hotel makes sure she never wants to leave!!!

We had a meeting (30 people) from outside Kansas City and used the hotel meeting room and also the sleeping rooms for our team. Working with the staff was such a pleasure. The meeting space was just perfect, and the location is amazing. Close to downtown, close to the Plaza, and right across from KU Med. Easy highway access---and very well priced. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spousie great service
My husband and I have been so impressed with Maggie, Amy and Sean at this hotel. We are back again this week Aug.26-29 and happy to see their familiar faces. They have gone above and beyond the call of duty to supply us with paper, envelopes and directions to nearby drugstores & restaurants. Your hotel is immaculate and comfortable. The only thing we would ever change with the Holiday Inn Expresses is the choice of pillows. We prefer the feather/down or flatter pillows so when it's possible, we bring our own.
Looking forward to our next visit here, we thank you.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tattoo946 Not Such A Great Place To Stay
I am very accustom to staying at Holiday Inn Express properties and would have to say this is THE WORST I have ever stayed at. Very questionable neighborhood. There is a security person on duty 24hrs a day. People wondering in the parking lot at all hours of the morning. The pool is a joke and is smaller than any pool I have seen before. The place was clean but was not impressed AT ALL. Will not stay here again and would not recommend to friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CC1989 Great staff, very clean and comfortable.
I went down to KC with a couple of my friends for my Birthday and we had a few hiccups along the way with our plans. The 3rd party we booked our hotel through never sent our reservation, and our originally planned hotel had no rooms available. So, we were room-less when we got to Kansas City, and encountered some rather rude customer service along the way.
The staff here made all the difference. We got a last minute hotel room, and Bonnie at the front desk took great care of us. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, breakfast was good. All in all, just a great experience.
I will definitely come back the next time I find myself in the area.
