Courtyard By Marriott Kansas City Country Club Plaza

... abruptly with tears
in my eyes from pure exhaustion and confusion. Not only was the
office barred off, the glass was broken where the office vendor I
assume takes money from people in exchange for hotel keys, but a
woman was pacing back and forth, staring at me frequently. She put
her arms up defensively at me and I said to myself, “I'm sorry, I
can't help it.”
Today we took on the mighty Verruckt at Schlitterbahn. The worlds tallest water slide with a 168 foot drop. That's higher than the Statue of Liberty and Niagara Falls. You have to climb 250+ stairs to get to the top. Had to drive 11 hours yesterday to make it to Kansas. It was worth the ...
We shopped at Costco today to get food for camping and we got even more excited. We met up later that evening to start packing the car. Even after a midnight run to Walmart, surprisingly we got everything packed! We didn't even have to carry things in our laps! We set off at 3am after getting pumped up from the Lizzie McGuire Movie. We are ready to take on the adventure of tomorrow's road ...
... Walmart allows travelers to spend the night in their parking lots across the whole country. It is a nice thing, when all you need is a place to sleep for the night. Anyway, if you ever wondered where the website http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/ gets their shots from.It may very well be Kansas. You would think that these people of the plains would be wholesome and kind, but that was not our experience. They seemed angry to live here and not happy ...
... well, we did find a nice tap house in downtown (The Flying Saucer) and had a really nice lunch. One of the stores we stopped at was in the historic river market district, which was an interesting area.
So tomorrow we continue our path homeward and head north for North Platte, NE. We hope to get in early enough for me to get in a visit to the UP rail tower. If not, then hopefully the next morning before we get underway. Time will tell.

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard By Marriott Kansas City Country Club Plaza
Un precioso hotel boutique: fantástico para un fin de semana "de chicas"
Pasé aquí mi cumpleaños (el 10 de febrero) con mis dos hermanas y mi madre. Nos alojamos en una suite Double queen, muy espaciosa.
La ubicación es ideal. Puedes caminar hasta el Plaza y llegas en dos minutos. Es un hotel verdaderamente precioso. Está decorado con mucho gusto y es muy atractivo. Puedes registrarte temprano y el desayuno es maravilloso. Se puede aparcar cerca y sin dificultades. No hay gastos ocultos. El personal es fantástico.
Beautiful Boutique Hotel - Great For Girl's Weekend Out
Stayed there on my birthday - 2/10 - with my 2 sisters and my mother. Double queen suite - plenty of room.
Perfect location. You can walk to the Plaza in about 2 minutes. It's a really lovely hotel. Beautifully decorated and very inviting. They allowed early checkin and the breakfast was great. Parking is easy and close. No hidden charges. Great staff.
We'll stay there again.
smelled like a hundred bottles of Lysol were dumped in the lobby - quite overwhelming--- and the background music that is played everywhere is quite obnoxious
We are from St. Louis, traveled to Kansas City for a romantic weekend at the Plaza without our kids. We couldn't have been happier with this hotel.
We normally stay at either The Rafael or the Ritz (now the Intercontinental) at the Plaza, but both were booked.
This property is a renovated apartment building, so it's unlike any Courtyard that I have experienced. Feel much more like a boutique property.
We had a very large 1 bedroom suite with separate living area for $129 a night. Standard rooms were $109. Our two night stay with taxes and $60 in drinks/movie charges was $350. Parking is free.
The staff was very helpful and professional. Very.
The property itself is just on the outside of the Plaza, within walking distance (1/2 block). If you go, try either Re:verse for dinner or M&S Grill for drinks at the bar.
The restaurant is not full-service, just breakfast and snack around happy hour. We did not eat there, so can't offer an opinion. The bar is very small, but efficient. I am told, however, they plan to go full service after the first of the year.
We would certainly stay there again.
We stayed here for our one year anniversary, and this hotel was perfect for us! The location was good within walking distance for everything we wanted to do on the plaza. Some things on the plaza required a little bit more walking than we thought but overall a great location. The hotel staff was very friendly, the hotel was very clean.
Wonderful Location, Wonderful Rooms, Wonderful Hotel
This hotel opened in April 2006 and is a top quality 3-star hotel. 3-star based on the services and amenities. It's very well decorated in a renovated historic building. Rooms feature flat panel LCD televisions in HD which almost makes you want to stay in. It's literally a block from the Country Club Plaza, which makes you want to spend as little time in the room as possible.
The beds are the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept on, and the rooms have incredible views. The pool is acceptable.
Bathrooms are very clean and have all the necessary amenities, even a little seat at the end of the tub if you need it. Plenty of storage space and the king rooms even include a nice couch. Other hotels would call this room a suite.
Fantastic Place to Stay
This is a brand new hotel, just opened in May 2006. It is an historic building, built in the '20's for apartments but recently restored into a hotel. The staff was excellent, very friendly and helpful, truly going above and beyond. Kathryn at the front desk is as friendly as any hotel employee you will ever meet.
The breakfast is excellent with cooked to order omelets, make your own waffles, biscuits and gravy, and more.
The pool is relatively small and outside but heated to 84 degrees and still nice. Indoors is a small fitness center and a nice hot tub.
The rooms are great, very spacious and all have a widescreen, flat panel TV with free HBO.
Right next to The Plaza so just walking down is super easy and well worth the time, not to mention that the Plaza area is loaded with great restaurants and shopping.
Boutique Hotel at it's finest
What a buitiful remodel. I had the best weekend. The location is so conveiant and the hotel is fantastic. The front desk staff went above and beyond. They were extremly friendly and remembered your name. The night supervisor Kathryn is an absoulute treasure. She had great dinner recomendations, directions, and map. She was so upbeat and happy, you coud see it was contagious. GREAT FLAT screen T.V.'s. Lobby is lovely. Great Place. Will definetly be back.
Rolling down JCNichols Drive we happened upon the Courtyard. It caught our eyes because of the historic ambiance. The staff was exceptional - helpful in every way, from the front desk to the breakfast wait staff. The room was so romantic as we opened the sheers of the huge picture window to see the park and fountain. Step out the front door to relax on the patio or venture a few steps to the Plaza. Outdoor swimming was a pleasant way to relax after a full day of activites as it was open late. Elegant bathroom with plenty of space.The bed was so inviting with its downlike quilt and pillows galore - like sleeping on a cloud. We've never had such a night's sleep! Breakfast is served at the hotel, and what a fantastic spread they offered - from individually made omlets to fresh fruit. A fabulous romantic get away.
Best hotel in KC!
I stayed at the Courtyard Marroitt on the plaza. My plans changed quickly and I needed to stay in the city overnight. The hotel is a restored building, but doesn't have that "old" feel that some hotels do. The rooms are very large and comfortable. The decor and furnishings are excellent. A business center and small lobby bar are convienient and the location of the hotel is the best in the city. The front desk staff were exceptional! Could not have stayed in a nicer place. Will definetly go back!
