Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Xfatman Amazing until.......
I'm a traveling compliance officer and trainer spending about 140 nights a year, in the Midwest. I travel with a complete mobile office, computer, printer, scanner, laminator, projector and cameras both video and still. In other words a trunk full, I assemble the office almost every night to prepare for the next day. Which leads to my rating, in the AM everything packed and ready to go I went down stairs for a Bellman's Cart, the night before two were in the lobby , I had used one to move to my room. None could be found, after inquiring their whereabouts. The answer I revived from the young lady at the front desk seemed a little funny. After the third trip to my room I noticed the room right behind the check in, yep you guessed it both carts loaded full. So I inquired again after the fifth trip as I handed over my key about the carts again an answer just a little different from the first but still not the truth, when I ask her to turn around she glanced back and closed the door quickly nothing else was ever said. So great place but about a five on the Pinocchio scale for the truth.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ophelia80 Nice hotel but unprofessional reception
Although we felt the hotel was nice, we were disappointed that an apparent friend of the host on duty was allowed to linger in the reception area with a bottle of beer in hand. It simply gave the hotel an unprofessional taste.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RMB13 There are so many things to recommend about this place
We were in Independence to visit family. Our son looked at this place and emailed us that it was very nice and also in a safe area. (There are a lot of stores and restaurants close by too.)
When we arrived it was late evening. The staff greeted us with a smile and when we saw our room we were delighted. It was clean and welcoming. Our kitchen was spotless and had utensils, plates, cups, pots and pans, etc. So many things were available to make our stay comfortable.
The breakfast buffet is quite a buffet. Eggs, waffles, fruit, bacon... I could go on. There were 'light meals' Tuesday through Thursday evenings where there was fresh salad, meat and a vegetable. The ladies in this area were friendly and accommodating.
When we found we were extending our stay, we were so comfortable with our accommodations that we continued our stay there.
We hope to be back in the area in the near future and plan to stay at Staybridge when we return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wacny Great stay if you have a car!
Great hotel. Very clean rooms. Friendly and helpful (gave good clear directions and printed off maps). One downside is the location (no fault of the hotel's): it is a good 40 min drive to the airport, so if you don't have a car, I suggest you rent one (taxi/shuttle costs about $70). It could also use some better signage from 39th st (the hotel is on 39th pl)since you cannot see the hotel from the main road. Decent hot breakfast served in the morning, but arrive early as there are not many seats! Great stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnandKerri We felt at home!
My wife and I adopted a newborn baby girl and the first place we went to when we were all released from the hospital was the Staybridge KC, Independence. We had to stay in MO for an extra week due to state law and paperwork. So, although we were dying to get home, we truly felt as though we were in a home away from home. Lindsay, the general manager, and her staff went above and beyond to take care of us. They gave us a crib for our daughter to sleep in. We had fresh coffee and breakfast included every morning. There were drinks and snacks available at all tiimes. There was a light dinner fare and complimentary beer or wine a few nights during the week. And, most importantly, we had free use of the laundry facilities. My wife was able to work out in the fitness center directly connected to the laundry room. The place was quiet and well-maintained. The personalities of the front desk staff, the kitchen staff, and the cleaning staff were wonderful. Everyone was so nice. We didn't meet one person who seemed miserable doing their jobs. They made us feel at home! Those in charge of running various Staybridge Suites across the country should take a lesson from Lindsay and her staff. They are doing things right! Thank you, John and Kerri.

We enjoyed the stylish room, lobby and eating area. While we didn't take advantage of the pool, the outdoor patio area was lovely.

Great Hotel! Don't look for directions online as they are incorrect. Just call the hotel. I hope to stay there again.
