We booked two rooms. One was an hour late being ready and neither room had a working mini fridge. Hotel staff were not helpful at all in getting this issue remedied. Overall the room was beautiful and clean.

Dear meganschuster, Thank you for your feedback. We’re glad you enjoyed the beautiful guestroom and found it to be very clean. Please do accept my apologies for your room not being ready at the 4 pm check-in time. We always make every effort to ensure they are, and it is rare when they are not. I would appreciate the opportunity to learn more details about your stay with us as we are a bit confused. From researching all previous reservations under your last name, the only reservation we saw was from March 1, 2019, and the room was provided at 1 pm. The best way to reach me is dbreckenridge@kansascityic.com. I hope you will contact me so we may better understand your experience. Sincerely, Don Breckenridge General Manager

My husband and I stayed at the Intercontinental for a work trip with his company. Every night, we had large dinner events at the hotel, and the service each night was exceptional. One bartender in particular, Mafutari O’Neal made us feel especially at home by remembering our

My first experience at the InterContinental was overwhelmingly positive, however this last time was dim. We went out for drinks and then wanted to come back to the hotel bar and listen to the music, however the bartender was exceedingly rude. She was saying negative things about

Dear rtaff2, Thank you for staying with us for the second time. Obviously, we regret that the experience did not live up to your expectations based on your first visit. It is extremely unusual to receive feedback about our staff being anything less than very friendly, accommodating and professional. This is the expectation we have of ourselves and of each of our associates. I would appreciate you contacting me directly at dbreckenridge@kansascityic.com. This will allow me to personally apologize and obtain more details so we may follow-up internally. Sincerely, Don Breckenridge General Manager

I checked in very late on a Sunday night/Monday morning as I was having heating problems in my condo. I was greeted by Chris the night manager and Justin the bellman who could not have been nicer to me. My room was perfectly appointed with more than I expected. The coffee tea

Dear Mary P, Thank you for choosing the InterContinental Kansas City, and for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. We hope the heating issue in your condo has been resolved. We’ll be sure to let Chris, Justin and our In-Room Dining team know how much you enjoyed their service. The beds really are very comfortable and it’s hard to get a great night’s sleep without blackout drapes. We’re glad you slept like a baby! The over-sized mirrors in the restrooms were added during the recent renovation. Our female travelers love all the lighting, and we frequently hear that guests like the fact the mirrors do not fog up. One of our many extra touches is offering In-Room dining 24/7. It’s a great amenity! We look forward to your next visit. Perhaps you can stop by and enjoy the live music featured in the Oak Bar nightly Monday thru Saturday. Sincerely, Don Breckenridge General Manager

"We were on the 4th floor. It was quiet."
"Stay in the tower, not the 6 story attached building or you might have a long walk to everywhere."
