The Club Floor at this hotel is outstanding. The attendants are friendly and helpful. The view over the Country Club Plaza is awesome, and the food and drink are above average.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ken Idaho OK Hotel.
Stayed here before a few times. Rooms are fine. Air conditioning is inadequate and couldn't keep the room cool during the day. The bar and restaurant are good unless they have their extremely loud and obnoxious music playing. Then both venues are uninhabitable.
I do not understand why they insist on loud live music, in location where people want to talk. It's impossible to talk in the bar or restaurant at these times. You can cross the river into the Plaza and still hear the music. It's been that way for the three years I've stopped there. I've complained each time I've stayed, and I know many others have also. I will not be staying there again because of this.

Check in was quick and easy. All staff was friendy and very helpful, not snooty as with some other high-end hotels. Breakfast buffet was fantastic. Get a room facing the Plaza if possible, a beautiful view. My only problem was a hard bed as my back prefers a softer mattress but that's my problem not the hotel's.

The perfect place to stay, right next to Country Club Plaza. We were pleasantly surprised with an upgrade to the club floor, which was fantastic. Many thanks to Kent, a club floor employee, for making our stay even more enjoyable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by derek112 Perfect location
Comfortable bed. Great view. Excellent location for Nelson-Atkins museum, shops and restaurants. Disappointed that the pool was opening only from the day of our departure; would have enjoyed a dip as it was very warm during our visit. The club facilities were not the best we have experienced. However, overall we enjoyed our stay and will stay there again when we next visit KC.

This was the 4th time I have stayed here and have to say it was my best! The staff was very helpful in finding restaurants and places to shop. LOVED the concierge lounge and the location was perfect.
Even had great room service - try the burgers! :-)
Thanks a bunch

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Afg52 Over all good but some staff not so nice
Overall had a great stay- beautiful room, close to lots of walkable things to do. I have truly only two complaints -
1. I was not informed that in giving my debit card at check in I was going to be charged the full amount plus additional fee. THis resulted in an overdraft fee from my bank account. When I called to inquire about this the staff person I talked to was neither sympathetic, helpful, or apologetic. The following day I did notice a small stating as such, but in either case was frustrated that nobody told me at the get go.
2. While my room was very clean on one of the days I was away from my room from 7-400 and during that time my room was not cleaned. By the time they came to clean I was in the room and just said don't worry about it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kurt21 Nice hotel, even nicer staff
Really enjoyed our stay at the Intercontinental. The staff was exceptionally friendly and provided top-shelf service, especially Dave, the bell-man!
The hotel itself is very nice and the rooms are fine. Plus, the location, adjacent to "The Plaza," is very convenient.
We will definitely stay at this hotel again on the next trip to Kansas City.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KiyaNikita7 Great hotel!
I generally choose less expensive hotels, and I half expected the staff to be snoody. They were anything but that. Every single staff member greeted me with a smile and was eager to help me. They even upgraded my room so I could check in early. The bed was incredibly comfortable. I had a very pleasant experience and would definitely recommend this hotel!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by meghan D So disappointed!!!!!
The beds were comfortable, nice view of the Plaza, but for the price you pay for one night, I would recommend using the Hotel Tonight app, and find a just as cool if not cooler room for WAY cheeper! Plus on the computer, it said a shuttle one way was included, and we were denied our shuttle. I had a bachelorette party for my sister there and staff did not go out of their way in any way shape or form for anything. It was stiff, rigid and very expensive. I figured a hotel this price and on the Plaza would be warm, friendly and accommodating.....not the case, I was bigtime dissappointed, as I am from KC and this was my first time staying at the hotel. WiFi did not work, despite 2 calls to the front desk, and the railing on our balcony was a bit scary in places, the shower was dirty.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Insider Great location but attention to detail lacking
Location was the best thing about this property. There were good running routes nearby, particularly in scenic Loose Park. I found it easy to get to Royals Stadium, Lego Discovery Center and the American Jazz Museums while using the hotel as a home base. Plus, there were good restaurants within walking distance over at Country Club Plaza. Unfortunately, this location was showing its age. The water temperature in the shower was erratic, fluctuating from cold to hot to cold again. The remote contract on the TV worked some times and not others. The A/C wouldn't go below 70 degrees and it was in the mid 80s in early May when cooler temperatures in the room would have been welcomed. If I wasn't here on business, I would not have chosen this hotel. It was serviceable.

The decor and mix of modern updates with original fixtures and theme were very enjoyable. The spaces were adequate and the environment welcoming. The only downside was a lack of instructions from the staff regarding the conference I was attending (i.e. internet access) as others who checked in did get information.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Murphy4883 Great Location- Could use a refresh
I stayed at the Intercontinental Kansas City as part of a wedding room block. While the views over the plaza from my room were amazing and the marble lobby is beautiful, the guest rooms could really use an update. The bed was the hardest and most uncomfortable hotel stay in memory. The King room was large with a chair and desk, but lacked a mini fridge and had peeling wallpaper. It was clean and adequate but I'd hate to spend full price on this room. They also failed to deliver our wedding gift basket to our room and instead gave it to us at check in. Not a big deal if I hadn't known that the bride had paid $3 per basket to have them waiting in the rooms. My only interaction with staff was at 2:30am. I lost my key card and didn't have my ID with me at the end of the night so they sent a security officer up to my room with me to fetch my ID. I know of a number of different KC hotels I'd recommend over this one. I would definitely go back to utilize the pool though.

I was originally born in KC, MO. I had always wanted to stay at the Intercontinental Hotel so found that when I had this trip coming back to KC that this would be a good time to do it.
It is a beautiful hotel, the room was very spacious, comfortable bed, great view of the Plaza.
Your service was wonderful with one exception - the Oak Room.
On my first morning there I waited at least 20 minutes for service after being seated. Then, when I did get service I explained that we had a time crunch and I ordered for both my husband and myself. My husband'sfood was over cooked, if we had more time he would have sent it back. My breakfast was fine.
The second day was just as bad, I am not sure why I had to wait 20 minutes for someone to come and give me water and coffee?
My husband ordered eggs again for breakfast and this time he did send them back, overcooked again. He was not impressed.
That would be my only comment, please have someone greet the people when they sit down, at least that way they won't think that they are being ignored.

We have stayed at this location on 33 previous occasions. This is the second time we have stayed on a concierge level , But this time in particular, we found the experience to be well worth it. Both of the concierges that we encountered (Craig and Kent) really made our visit special and memorable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jack1 This place needs a makeover
The location is great but the facilities are worn. Needs new paint and carpet in the room I used. Nicks and dents everywhere you looked. Toilet handle dripped water when flushed. For the money we spent, we expected nicer facilities.
We did forget our laptop when we checked out and by the time we returned, it was safely locked up in housekeeping so the staff receives an excellent rating.

My client reserved the hotel for me. It was fantastic! Wonderful, courteous staff with check-in, Housekeeping and the Gift Shop. Beautiful room with a beautiful view from my balcony. Quick and convenient access to parking and local dining. My only regret was that it was just for one night. I would certainly come back here on my own dime.

My room was not done being cleaned when I arrived, but the staff was very accommodating and gave me an upgrade. I liked the fact that they wanted to wait until the room was up to standard before letting me stay in it. They even gave me free drinks while I waited. I only waited about 30 minutes. Overall great experience, especially because it is right on the Plaza.

After having some trouble wi/our keys, one of the desk personnel upgraded our new key to the concierge floor. There, we enjoyed the breakfast as well as the happy hour. All the staff in that area were extremely polite and friendly.

Stayed at hotel for conference that was at hotel. Went to check in at 3 and room wasn't ready, went back a half hour later and room still wasn't available. Guy at front desk said they were still cleaning room, but would upgrade the room because we had been waiting for over two hours. When I went back up to the front desk after 7 pm the room was finally available, but I didn't receive upgrade that he stated earlier. So we waited 4 hours for a room and all we got were drink tickets.

We come to the Intercontinental for a vacation and we always enjoy our room, the view, but we especially enjoy the service and kindness on the concierge suite. Kent always ensures everyone is taken care of. He is a true tribute to the hotel and wonderful ambassador of KC.
