Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IowaUSMC Great weekend stay
This hotel was great. The staff was very friendly. The room was clean. All I can say about the shower is WOW. This is without a doubt the best shower I have ever seen in a hotel. It could have used a bench and the shower head was so high that it couldn't be reached by most people. But still rates #1 in my books. My only complaint about the hotel is that there were no hot tub/Jacuzzi rooms available. Not even a hot tub in the pool area.
All in all a great hotel at a great rate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lefty54 Outstanding Holiday Inn Express
This is the nicest Holiday Inn Express we have ever stayed at. It is brand new and right across the street from the Medical Center. The rooms are wonderful, the bathrooms are great and the furnishings are beautiful. The parking lot is safe and well lit.
We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel and definitely recommend it.

My wife, 1yr old and I were in Kansas City to visit friends and enjoy the St. Patrick's Day weekend festiivities. We were very impressed with this new hotel with it's hip yet comfortable decor. We loved having 5 Guy's burgers in the same building and we also could have not asked for a better location. Thank you for your excellent service and meeting our baby needs with the suite upgrade.

My son and I recently spent a night at this hotel, in the middle of a father-son long weekend. It was excellent in every respect, one of the best Holiday Inn Express hotels I have been in (out of dozens)..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SallyQ Staff smiled through a snow storm.
From the time I made the reservation till we checked out we received top notch service. Our daughter was in KU MED for surgery and my husband and I took turns staying with her while the other one stayed at the hotel. There was a big snow storm and some of the hotel staff did double duty, because other staff members couldn't get to work. We heard no grumbles or complaints. Just a smiling staff ready to help with whatever we needed. The rooms were nice sized with comfortable beds. The indoor garage was a great help as we parked our car and did not have to drive in bad weather. We even used the nice clean guest laundry. Two staff members who were especially helpful ... Even filling in on other jobs than their own were Jim and Amy. They and all the others were so kind to us. It felt like a home away from home.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by enpro19310 Not the worst place I've stayed
The room and hotel were clean. The staff and cleaning people were nice. I was waiting for an important package that was mailed to the hotel for me for the job I was there for. It was mailed 2nd day delivery. After many calls over several days to the hotel, my package finially arrived a week late. I had contacted the local Post Office the day before to inquire about the delivery. The day it was suppose to be delivered the Post Office left a notice that there was a package there to be picked up. Due to someones lack of effort to get the mail, I lacked vital information I would have otherwise had access to. It was extremely difficult to do the job my company sent me there for. Security at a hotel usually means that the hotel is in a "not so good" area. It kind of reminded me of my trips to Mexico where you never really knew what to expect when you left the "safety" of your room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marcella Ideal location near KCU Medical Center
Located across the street from KCU Medical Center. Ideal location if family member needs a multiple day stay in hospital. Staff always accommodating to our changing needs. Housekeepers fast and eficient and Ms B in dining area is a true find. She makes everyone welcome. All staff were just wonderful and caring. Although we prefered to walk to hospital there is also a free shuttle from hotel to hospital and back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quire Fabulous!
Nearly brand new, the place still smells "off the showroom floor" new. Spacious room, and a Five Guys restaurant on the main level of the building! Yummy. The few problems in the room were fixed almost instantly. Place is still a bit in shakedown, but not a problem. I'll definitely be staying with them again.
Though a bit more than a bottle of water would be nice for Priority Club members' recognition gift....how about some fresh fruit, too? Or, a Milky Way bar?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Poorbkfst Nice room slow breakfast
The room was great with plenty of room. Very disappointed in the breakfast service. Stated breakfast hours started at 6:30am most days it took until 7am or later for everything to be set out. More than one "hot" item was luke warm at best. In my past experience most hotels start breakfast at 6am and generally have everything ready at the starting time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rcfhorton Shower
Worst shower at a Holiday Inn Express. Shower Head is 8 feet high. Normal height is 6 feet.
Shower is a bad copy of a poor European design. No shower curtain or sliding glass door. Small entrance around a corner, you have got to experience this train wreck to appreciate it.
Noisy from Medical center.

Had to check out very early due to the construction outside, children running and slamming doors. Staff offered to move me - from what I could see no other room would have improved the stay. I opted to check out and seek other accommodations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kelly66749 Best Hotel in the KU Med Center area....
This location is definitely what I consider a Holiday Inn Express which is nice, affordable, and centrally located to KU Med Center and good restaurants, entertainment, and coffee shops. I have to give one of the front desk clerks (Jimmy) a special thank you for being so nice and considerate. I love the Suites this location has to offer. For just a few more dollars I felt as comfortable as I do in my own home. I have been waiting for this location to open and I am glad it is open and ready. This location is secured with a guard on premises at all times, and even they were nice and considerate. I cannot wait to go back in a couple weeks. See you soon!!!!

Perfect place to stay while my son interviewed at KU med. Everything was excellent but I was most impressed with the staff. Extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone from the desk staff, the lady in the breakfast area, to the maintenance people were super friendly and i appreciate that. The woman in the breakfast area made you feel like you were eating in her kitchen! There is a great little work out room and I loved the little "store" where you could buy everything from razors to ice cream!

We had a quick but enjoyable stay. The hotel is new, so the decor is up to date and the rooms are quite comfortable. The thing that impressed me the most, though, was the friendliness of the staff. I'm sure that guests who are visiting the KU Medical Center will appreciate the breakfast and caring staff.

And right down the street from some cool places to eat! Took my wife here when she needed a break from the chaos at home. We ate at the Cajun restaurant "Jazz" where you eat spicy food and listen to groovy music. It was a perfect getaway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Louisianatraveler Perfect place to stay
The new Holiday Inn Express on Rainbow Blvd in Kansas City is the perfect place for family members of KU Med Center patients to stay. The friendly staff and comfortable room helped make a difficult time a little less stressful. My only wish would be that a cheaper rate could be offered. Even though a slight discount is offered, expenses add up fast when a loved one has an extended stay in the hospital.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Justin76 Freindly staff and GREAT location!
My wife and I stayed at the new Holiday Inn Express near the KU Medical Center for an overnight getaway. An open two story lobby lead to a second floor registration desk that gives you the feeling of a large city location. We were continually engaged by the friendly staff throughout our stay. The rooms were very spacious and the décor was more than expected with a modern/upscale feel. Although close to the Plaza and Downtown, we decided to stay in the 39th Street neighborhood which was filled with eclectic shops and local/independent restaurants and was within easy walking distance of the hotel. We will be recommending this location to anyone staying in the area! Thanks again to the staff!

Everything from the time I pulled into the parking lot until I left the next morning was great. Staff was excellent, room was great and they even upgraded me to a suite when I arrived. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Just an overall great place to stay. Located just across the street from KU Med Center and close to downtown Kansas City. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KansasGirl First visit to KU Med Center
My husband and I took his mother to KU Med for open heart surgery and decided to stay in the Holiday inn Express across the street because of its convenient location. The hotel and its staff were wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone staying there. Miss B was great as she welcomed us to breakfast each morning. It was an easy walk for us - just across the street - and since the KU security van picked us up after dark, we didn't have to worry about safety issues. Thanks to the staff for making our stay comfortable and less stressful under the circumstances.
