Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PT1987 Great downtown hotel!
We greatly enjoyed our Memorial Day Weekend get-away at the Aladdin Hotel. The hotel is a nicely restored and updated property on the National Register of Historic Places. Easy to reach from the interstates, it is right in the heart of downtown, across the square from the Convention Center and within easy walking distance of the many restaurants, shops and other entertainment of the Kansas City Power and Light District. Valet service was fast--although all three times we called down to have our car brought up, the word never got to the valets and we had to hunt one down to get our car. Food in the hotel restaurant was exceptional and affordable, but even though we were the only ones in the restaurant at the time we ate the waitress was surly and inattentive. Overall, however, we greatly enjoyed our stay and most certainly will stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmin Great Overnight Stay
We stayed one night for a wedding in KC and it was a great experience. The room was small but comfortable and the staff were great. We had requested our room be in a corner and they got us as close as they could. Definitely a great place to stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RJL1 Too noisy
Always hard to time a stay but the hotel was overrun by partiers, keeping us awake until 3am. I'd already changed rooms once in order to accommodate a group of ladies who wanted adjoining rooms. We wish you had quiet floors where there are rules on noise and security can assure compliance.
Even with this difficulty, we were very impressed with the staff of the hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Filco good
Stayed a few nights with no difficulties other than the bed not too pleasant (hard on the hip bones), and too many led lights in the room at night from the TV, air con, clock, smoke alarm, etc.
Free wifi is good, although somewhat slow.
Wish there were bins to recycle things in, hard to find in Kansas City, not very green!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cgolds Wonderful experience all around
I have stayed here twice on business and enjoyed a drink in the martini loft, had dinner in the restaurant, ordered room service and used the fitness center. My stay was very comfortable and the staff was more than accommodating each time. I would highly recommend this hotel for the staff, first, but also because it is so well appointed and decorated. It is in an excellent location, has wonderful amenities and the food is excellent. Only a few short blocks from the power and light district! You will not be disappointed!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kristym Too Noisy - Lovely room - but too small
This was a last minute reservation and the only room they had left was a single king. Room was lovely, but WAY too small as was the bathroom. Room must have been located close to an air conditioner because it was very noisy and hard to sleep. The light on the thermostat was so bright it illuminated the entire room. Nice design touches throughout, but most important for a stay is GOOD SLEEP, which i did NOT get. I was expecting a free continental breakfast, as is the norm at other Holiday Inn's i've stayed, but it was not included. You could get a piece of toast and an apple for $9.99.
One plus - the hotel was within walking distance to the convention center. It was nice being close enough to walk.
This was alittle out of my price range, and for the lack of sleep, I will probably chose another hotel next time I'm in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Black_mask Good place to stay
Stayed in the hotel over three weeks while I was on a business trip. Nice place. Staff is extremely nice and always look to make your stay comfortable. Room is clean and well kept for guests. While the breakfast buffet is nice, selection is very limited and they repeat the exact same menu every day...... wish they could mix up a little.

It had a thermostat, and supposedly you could adjust it, but I got back from a concert at Midnight, and my room was 66 degrees when I had it set at 72. It never got above 66 degrees no matter how high the thermostat was.
I was told on checkout that I was supposed to CALL and have the heat turned on by the maintenance staff! Seriously do not think this is my responsibility.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Xio S Buena ubicación, falta de limpieza
La ubicación es excelente, sin embargo faltó mayor limpieza en la habitación que me asignaron (había cabellos en el baño).
La puerta no funcionaba bien por lo que era difícil cerrarla.
No cuenta con estacionamiento propio, es necesario ubicar y pagar por un lugar para estacionar el coche.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Black_mask Good choice
Even though building is very old it has been renovated and turned to make look more modern. Staff is very professional and courteous. Overall place is nice and clean. Only minor issue I have is the coffee machine in the room is really bad and doesn't work. I stayed in hotel for a month on a business trip and got 4 different room during the time and coffee machine didn't work in any room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ande31744 Worst hotel stay I've ever had
This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. The facilities themselves are okay - dated, but that's acceptable since it's a restored vintage hotel, but the main problem was the staff's poor job at controlling their hotel. We tried checking in at 2pm -normal check-in is 4 - while walking by to the local auditorium for a basketball game. Our room wasn't ready -which is completely understandable since we were early. The clerk informed us that she could move us to a different room but NEEDED to keep us where we were. We left things as they were and headed to our basketball game. We came back to checkin in around 4:30. Check-in went fine and we found our room on the 15th floor. The room was small, but completely acceptable considering the buildings age. Later that night when we came back from dinner, we noticed EXTREMELY loud music coming from all around our room. At 11:15 we finally called the front desk - they told us there was a fraternity formal in the building and they would "call their chapter president" to get them to quiet down #which is an incredibly stupid idea - good luck getting one of them to control the other 50#. 20 minutes later nothing had changed, so I call again - this time they assure me that they'll physically send someone up to my floor to fix it. 20 minutes later, still no change so I call for a third time - this time they assure me that they're kicking people out of their rooms and that it will end soon, they also credited back the cost of my stay in full. 30 minutes after that, still no change. I finally put on my pants and shoes and start looking for the source of the music and banging noises. It turns out that there is a reception room on the 16th floor, putting the dance floor DIRECTLY ABOVE OUR ROOM. After complaining at the front desk I recieved no answer as to why they would EVER put someone in the room directly below the dance floor. I just can't believe the hotel would be stupid enough to use that room when they have a dance scheduled, especially putting someone in it that is not affiliated with the function they are hosting. My favorite part is that IF they were kicking some college kids out of their rooms on the 15th floor, they were choosing the wrong people.........it was the music ABOVE my bed that was the issue #which I couldnt place because it echoed EVERYWHERE#. I tried complaining at the front desk at checkout, but the kid at the counter just gave me a dumb look.
My favorite part is the first clerk who emphasized that she "had to keep us in that room" for some reason. So is that the room we were supposed to get, or did other people end up with our room and we got stuck in the one they knew would be a complaint with the dance floor above it? Either way it is completely unacceptable.
DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL - it's overpriced, dated, and the staff is worthless. If you must stay here, request a floor in the middle of the building.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MemphisLady You had me at Champagne at check-in
The hotel was quaint and the staff was professional and friendly. Our room was just beautiful and the decor throughout the hotel was stunning. We felt so special when they offered us Champagne at check-in!
We had a wonderful experience visiting downtown KC for the first time. Wish we had more time to explore the area around the hotel as it offered so much.

Recently traveled to KC to enjoy the new P&L District and chose the Holiday Inn Aladdin as my home base. Had a great room on the 12th floor that gave me a wonderful view of the city from a perspective that I hadn't had before.
Got a king size bed that was so comfortable. Enjoyed a pre night drink at the Martini Loft and had a great breakfast at the Zebra Room.
When my travels bring me back to KC, I'll choose the Aladdin first.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steve1098 Nice stay except for fitness center
The staff were friendly and very helpful.
I did not eat, so I do not have a review for food.
This is a nice old character hotel in a great Power and Light location. My overall experience would be one star higher if the gym was fully functional. The aerobic machines needed tuneups, and the weight machine did not work. I let the staff know, but I was there only one night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by om59 Great experience!
Sold out night due to wedding event, concert, and events at the convention center. In spite of that the staff did a great job accommodating us. Our hotel room was very nice, front of the hotel overlooking a park and the convention center. The bathroom was small reflecting the time period of the hotel but well appointed. Breakfast buffet was excellent. The parking garage across the street was full, but valet service was prompt.

Excellent location and courteous service. Did not enjoy the parking situation as the location is kind of crowded and only offers mandatory valet parking. Still a nice building and lovely staff.
Mere blocks from the famous Power and Light district and convention center downtown, it is definitely the best value of all hotels in the downtown area, yet still a bit overpriced.

My room was backed up against the elevator that rattled. Listened to it all night. When I mentioned it to the staff, they said they would make a note not to put me in that room next time. Pity the poor traveler who gets it next. I suggested making a note not to use those rooms on any floor unless full. Don't think that idea was taken.

Pillows and mattress were amazing!
Valet parking was a great value, especially in snowy conditions, compared to self-parking.
Only issue was no fridge to keep our infant's milk cold. Otherwise, a very nice, comfortable stay!

I had to ask for my room to be cleaned upon arrival . I was dirty. They did clean it but still not very clean.
They need more mats in lobby. I slipped and broke my shoulder. Not one person from hotel staff came to help me up.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty282 Lets get Married
Stayed at this Holiday inn location for a Wedding I was attending in the area. This hotel was 1 block from the reception site and allowed my wife and I party and have a close place to spend the night. The room was wonderful except for the rather small shower. The bed was very comfortable, the furnishings were up to date and the place felt very clean. The front desk staff were extremely friendly and the hotel was in great shape and well cared for. The problem with our stay was at breakfast the night after the wedding. Our room included 2 free breakfasts which was why I booked this location. The waitress was less then helpful, took 2 hours to get our food only after another waitress actually cooked it for us. there were maybe 10 other people not tables people that came in some before us some after us. EVERYONE WAITED 1.5+ for there food. Just so I'm fair in my review, I ordered 2 eggs over easy, hash browns and bacon with a water to drink. My wife ordered a skillet which is green pepper, onion, potatoes and 2 over easy eggs with bacon. Not real hard. We entered the restaurant at 940 we left 11:35. Needless to say we may or may not stay here again but will NEVER EVER EAT OR RECOMMEND THE RESTAURANT.
