Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kace Can't beat the location!
It is right on the plaza, so you can walk to everything from your hotel. That is the main reason why we chose to stay there. The rooms are very comfortable and the whole hotel is very nice. The only problem that I had was that you have to pay for internet. I mean practically every hotel has free internet and for the price that you pay to stay here it should be included. The parking is $15 a night, so it was good we only stayed 1 night. Overall, I really did like the hotel and will probably stay there again. The location of the hotel is just great to have an amazing time at the plaza.

I stay at alot of high end hotels. This has a good location.
The cost value per the type of room and amenities are average, in my opinion. The inside of the hotel itself is exquisite.
They charge too much for self parking, in my opinion, which is $7/day, but it is next to the pricey Kansas City Plaza.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LGJW Dated Worn Rooms
My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. When we 1st arrived we were told by the lady at the desk that they could not give us the room we reserved because other guest had decided at the last minute to extend their stay and that they had actually overbooked the rooms. We were downgraded to another room in which we stayed about 5 minutes because the bedding was dirty. The dust ruffle was torn and covered with dirt and hair. When we told the front desk about this they found a way to give us our original room we reserved. The new room was clean, but the bedding, towels, carpet and furnishings were worn and in need of replacing. I can see at one time this Hotel could have rated 5 stars and can again if they do some renovating, but in it's current condition I can only rate it as 2 stars.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ginger2241 KC Intercontinental on Aug 4-6, 2013
First problem happened at Check-in. I have an Ambassador Membership, but the attendant at the Ambassador Desk was helping others as the lobby was full of people trying to check in on Sunday at 4 PM. I asked the Bellman to help. He called her, but I still had to stand in line for almost 30 minutes just to check in.
The room was ready with fruit basket and water as promised. Second, there was a professional sports team staying at the hotel and one night we were out on the balcony have a cocktail and started to talk to some of them as they were seated at the table next to us and the security guard almost came unglued. We were unaware of who they were until the security guard made a huge deal out of the situation. The players were making no complaints and we had just casually started a conversation with them like you would with any other stranger. I guess you are not allowed to talk to them in the hotel. It was just bizarre and very uncomfortable as the guard just stood behind our two tables up against the wall with his arms crossed after basically telling us to leave them alone. We got up and left and that was the last cocktail we ever had at the hotel. Eat and drink some place else in the plaza in you stay at the Intercontinental.

The room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. The only complaint I have is that the room is next to the elevator and you can hear it going up and down all night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CAKSEB Great Location, Comfortable Bed and Wonderful Pool
We always celebrate our anniversary at the Intercontinental because it has a great location so we can walk to dinner. We love to come back and listen to music being played in the lobby. During the day we lay by the fabulous pool and read. They have great pool side service. Our only disappointment was not being upgraded to a better room and we are platinum elite. Our room was nice. No refrigerator.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amy45 Location was great!
We did enjoy our stay at the Intercontinental! The staff was very nice and helpful! I love the location too! The only thing we were disappointed with was the fact that there was no refrigerator in our room, and that we had to pay 15.00 per day for parking! I think that is outrageous! We are already paying to stay at your hotel, we shouldnt have to pay to park there too.

We have stayed at your hotel for many years on our anniversary. The view of the Plaza from the Deluxe room accommodations is spectacular. The pool is very nice and the waiting staff at the pool are very courteous and helpful. The food and beverage service is very timely. We will continue to visit your hotel each year and highly recommend it to our friends and others we come in contact with.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leslie2400 Relaxing quick getaway!
My husband and I were looking for a quick kid-free getaway within driving distance from OKC. My only "must" was an outdoor pool by which I could drink an adult beverage and read a good book. A friend recommended the Intercontinental and it totally delivered. Comfortable room for relaxing, sleeping, and sitting on the balcony overlooking the plaza. Beautiful pool area with food and drink service and an attentive and friendly staff. There were plenty of seating options for snoozing in the shade or sunning. Two pools, one of which is perfect if we return with our children. (But that also allows for those avoiding playful little ones to remove yourself from the action and still totally enjoy poolside R&R). All that and still walking distance from shopping and eating at the Plaza, and a quick drive from the wonderful art museum and Kauffman Stadium. We've decided to make Kansas City and the Intercontinental our quick getaway destination of choice!

I stay all over the world, choosing Intercontinental whenever possible. The IC Kansas City is may favorite hotel from anywhere in the world (IC or no IC). The staff is outrageously friendly and helpful. The hotel is in the perfect location. The Oak Room, Restaurant and Rooms leave no real room for improvement.
You are classy, cool and just a pleasure to be around. Can't wait for my next stay. I appreciate all you do.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SLKC Disappointed on an Anniversary Weekend...
First of all, I love the brands of the ICHotels group. I use them for both domestic and international travel. I stay at Crowne Plaza & Intercontinental while overseas, so I was excited to plan an Anniversary weekend overnight at home.
After making my reservation, I received an email from the concierge to which I replied about having some flowers in the room for my wife and billed to my room. I also asked if the carriage rides at the plaza nearby would pick up at the hotel. Unfortunately, by the time of my arrival, I never received a response - and my hope of finding flowers in the room were dashed. I certainly could have followed up, but I would think the service level of an Intercontinental would be better. We were also very disappointed that in the shower, the bathtub had peeling enamel around the drain and there were 2-3 patched of peeling paint above the tub as well. We had used points to book, so it seemed like we were relegated to the 'older' part of the hotel.
Overall, I was just disappointed in the brand... I was looking for that Intercontinental experience and was let down.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MKBC Best pillows in the world.
The bed and pillows were wonderful. We enjoyed the balcony with a view of the Plaza. Didn't hear any noise from adjoining room. Staff that we dealt with were very pleasant. Bathroom should have an exhaust fan. Air conditioner was loud; we had to turn the TV volume up when the air was running. Also, the air conditioning vent was directly across from the couch - brrr.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by scstomper Disappointing!
For a hotel that claims to be elite, I was very disappointed. I booked two rooms for a family weekend and requested 2 beds for each room. I was told there were no guarantees in advance. I paid a non-refundable rate (3 weeks in advance) to save on the price of 2 rooms. I called the day before our stay because I only got a confirmation reminder for one of the rooms and reiterated my 2 bed per room request. When we arrived the following day, I was told there were only single bed rooms available and I would have to get a rollaway bed for a second bed in each room. I would expect guests who pay in advance would get some priority over room assignments.
Also, one of the rooms had no mini refrigerator and the other had one which was sealed shut with zip ties. Additionally, I was charged for snacks in one of the rooms when neither was stocked with anything.
I ordered soft drinks in the lounge one evening and was told that we would have to consume them in the lobby because one of our party was a minor. This was not a problem until a security guard ordered us to leave the lobby because ballplayers were entering the building. None of my party did anything to interfere with them but the hardnose security guard rudely insisted we leave. We have stayed at several hotels where ballplayers also stay but have never been asked to move for simply sitting in the lobby.
On a positive note, a front desk clerk who overheard our problem with the sleeping arrangements did offer us breakfast coupons for one morning. The waiter and the cooks at breakfast were exceptional. The housekeeping staff was very nice and left extra towels.
The location is very close to shopping and restaurants. I could have rated the overall experience much higher if not for the above problems.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Debbi57 Awesome front desk staff
Unfortunately we had several issues. Usually our stay is effortless, relaxing with great food. Sleeping was uncomfortable due to the room thermostat not functioning, very warm. Showering was hot cold hot cold! Our room keys were not functioning, but when reset, they issued them to the incorrect room number!( 2 families with same name staying at hotel) This was such a pain, after several attempts to get up to Amassador level and or our room, they realized the error. ( one key worked but we had 3, 1 for our daughter)
Finally we ordered Salmon salad for lunch. The salmon was raw so waiter took it back only to return with it 7 minutes later after we ate our salads! No compensation offered and our ice tea and water was never refilled!
Again we usually have no issues and Love this Hotel and staff and do plan to return.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by neveragain40 Disappointed
We reserved a suite/concierge with a view weeks in advance. Our reservation stated that we could not cancel our room without loosing our deposit. When we arrived our room was no longer available and we were downgraded to a different suite. The suite we were given was dirty and stained. The walls had food stuck on them and overall it was pretty disgusting. The only reason we didn't pack up and leave is because we were only staying one night and decided to go out for the evening and make the most of it instead of wasting time complaining and moving to a new hotel. We always try to stay in a nice place. This was not one of them. Staff was friendly... no complaints there. Will not return. Spend your money elsewhere.

Stayed there in March with an ok experience but not great so I gave it a try again. Problems from check in to check out. Asst Manager frustrated with us because they edited our reservation and changed the check out day on one of the reservations.
Too upsetting to discuss the number of issues and frustration. There won't be a third time though, for sure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kast63 Nice service and comfortable but excessive extra charges
Chose the hotel to be central to family while visiting in KC. Everything was lovely except the "extra charges". By the time all the taxes are added to the bill along with extraneous fees the quoted price balloons.
We have grown to accept this from other hotel experiences. However, there seems to be a "free" parking arrangement for everyone except those on the honor system. We paid $15 a day for a "free" parking lot to others just because we were "honest" about parking our car there. If we had known that, maybe we wouldn't have been so "honest". No car information was retrieved by the hotel desk---just our openness about leaving it in the garage----hence, a daily fee. And with the room prices as they are, could this not include free WiFi? Yes, an additional fee!! It would be nice to go to a hotel and not be nickeled and dimed. Otherwise, lovely place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PatAmanda There for us again
Less than a week after our first trip to Kansas we had to come back; my mom had passed away. After our first experience at the Intercontinental there was no way I was going to stay anywhere else. A called the hotel to make a reservation with Katrina but she was off that day. Instead I talked to Natallie. Natallie was able to look up our last stay and again get us a good rate. When we arrived there was a letter at the front desk from the general manager. Right away we felt like we were with family again. This stay was just as pleasant as the first. All of the same peole where there and all of them were just as kind and compassionate as the first time. At the front desk we saw Katrina, Jared, Kelly and Natallie. In the morning at breakfast we saw Adam, Hisham and Tim. In the evenings at the restaurant/bar we saw Rob, Brittney, Ray, Ben, and Jessica. And the managers Dennis and Jesse were around as well. All of them were very caring and gave us their condolenscenes on the loss of my mother. Their kind caring attitudes made the whole expierence less stressfull. My family will definietly go back to the Intercontinental in Kansas City. There is no better place to stay in Kansas.

Fond memories of the hotel, so we had high expectations. Yet some little things stood out -- difficult check in, television down, smeared window, broken end table, pool landscaping overgrown. But nice staff and superb location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 82743 Noisy connecting doors
Our two night stay on the Plaza was great. The hotel was very nice, great view & comfy bed. But we had a couple with two small children next door where our rooms had a connecting door-set. While they were not inconsiderately loud, or anything, we could hear many parental tone instructions and conversations to the kids. And kids are kids - sometimes they make kid noises and are goofy - I just didn't want that as a part of my Plaza stay.
I'll stay there again - I loved the place. However, I will ask not to have any connecting door with adjacent rooms.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cwk78 Average experience - wouldn't stay again at the KC location
Pros: Nice lobby and bar area. Balcony in rooms. Nice toiletries.
Cons: Air conditioning ran for 40 straight hours during our stay and didn't even drop the temp 2 degrees. Locals can buy passes to use the pool so on a Saturday afternoon the pool was full with mostly locals. One large group (20-25) of kids in early 20s drinking and taking up a large area. People paying $250 a night to stay in the hotel can't find a lounger, chair, table, and can hardly get a drink. If you do order one via the 1-2 waiters that make their way around it takes over 20 minutes to have it delivered. Lastly, $15 for parking in Kansas City? Especially right across from The Plaza that is known for free parking?
Kansas City is really lacking in upper-mid scale hotels and this one isn't worth it other than the location.
