We stayed here because of closeness to Arrowhead Stadium for a recent Thursday night game. Check in was smooth, but at 3 pm our room very stifling hot.

Check in was great. The girl who checked me in was nice and helpful. When I got to the room, there was no power cord on the alarm clock, and the house person who brought me a new clock looked like she hated her job and was rude.

I've never stayed at a worse hotel ever. Had to switch rooms 3 times. 1st was not cleaned, 2nd had no working AC, and 3rd had no working shower. There was mildew down one whole hallway with tiles missing, and the breakfast bar was horrible. I suggest passing this one by.

i am a regular customer of this hotel. The cable TV package is awful. This trip a number of the channels were frozen the entire week. and it is impossible to watch local sports teams (ie Royals) because you do not have Fox Sports Midwest. Breakfast items have been downgraded and did not include eggs or meat, why???

But once you walk around the corner to the elevators not so much. The elevator it self looks awful on the inside and I prayed that it... More
