We went to Kansas City for a wedding. Very nice and sentimental jewelry was stolen. Numerous phone calls to the hotel were never returned. :-( It was a beautiful and expensive hotel with some not-so-nice staff members who apparently had sticky fingers. The wedding was beautiful, I drank wayyyyyyyy too much wine, and the drive home was very long and quiet. :-/

Do You Wish To Embellish Your Home

... finished hardwood, then add textured resources to give out specifics that will catch the eyes and make up a far more intriguing place. Don't be scared of shade! So many individuals maintain white colored wall surfaces within their house given that they are doubtful what hues works to them. You don't will need to go crazy with shade--even painting one particular wall structure a vibrant coloration will alter the really feel of the area. In case you are reluctant to paint, get ...

St. Louis to Kansas City

... yum! We hit the road, and although the drive to Kansas City was only four hours, this felt like a long trip. Luckily the overtired kids slept. In Kansas City we went for the nearest recommended barbecue, with takeout from Jack Stack. Beef ribs, short ribs, and burnt ends made for a great dinner. We ended the day with an excellent swim in the hotel pool. This one is deep and has high stone ledges to jump off - tons of fun. Kansas City seems really friendly. And ...

We had quite an adventure at IHOP. In fact, most of our time was spent away from the actual IHOP buildings, but all had connection with it. And nearly everyone we met was connected with Taiwan or China. It's a small world after all... 在IHOP的時間 4456;有意思。&# 20107;實上大部& ...

... a documentary about it and I've been fascinated with it ever since. It was one of my "bucket list" items. In the fall of 2012, I was battling breast cancer and decided I needed to start my bucket list now. The trip was planned for the summer of 2013, but unexpectedly I needed to have another surgery that summer and had to cancel my trip. Now a year and a half later, I am finally going! I've read plenty of advice from ...

    We were here with many other family members for a wedding. Several people lost some very nice jewelry ~ myself included. We saw the staff splitting-up jewelry in the parking garage on day one and should have known we would be next. Numerous calls to the hotel were never returned. First and only time this has ever happened to us.

    No Hot Water


    Not sure what happened to this hotel recently, but I can only assume it was nice once given the prior reviews. During a week long stay we never once had hot water in the shower, although the water in the sink was hot enough to burn. Between the unknown substance dripping off of the dining room table lamp, and the former residents toothpaste splatters on the sink, we weren't willing to walk on the stained carpet barefoot! The common area's were much nicer, until the last day when a leak from the roof started raining down on us. This was definitely lower quality than we would expect from an Embassy Suites.

    Stay Away


    We stayed at this hotel while visiting friends in Kansas City. Around 4 am we were awoke by the front desk telling us we were in the wrong room. The front desk person was rude and insulting. It was a computer error in their booking system and the supervisor apologized, but was still insensitive and rude. It was a nightmare experience. We will never go back.

    Great for families, but keep small kids away from balacony!


    We have stayed at the Embassy suites in Kansas City when we travel with our children, This way they can stay in their own area, a pull-out bed from the couch, with their own t.v., and we can have at least some privacy with our own bed and our own t.v. Of course there is only one restroom area, but it works out o.k. The rooms are kinda getting old, probably could use a little updating. The sliding glass doors out the the balconies can be dangerous for small kids, as well as the indoor hallway area balcony. I see kids love to throw stuff over the edges..not good. The kids love the glass elevators and the indoor pool. The work-out area is in bad need of more equipment, but thats a personal observation we have since we like to continue our workouts when traveling. The walk to the Plaza is not bad if you go the right way, and you don't have too many shopping bags to carry back with you, like I did. BUt do not walk through the hospital area. Oh, and speaking of the hospital...You need to know that being next to an area with an emergency room, there is constant ambulances sirens and a lot of noise. Having a sliding glass door towards the outside doesn't help with the outside noise much either, I have awoken thinking an ambluance has driven into our room...its that noisy!! We bring a "sound machine" to drown out the noice..and they sell them at the Sharper Image at the Plaza if you don't have one yet!!! But the pluses outweigh the negatives, especially if you have kids. If we travel just as a couple, we would probably not stay here. Its not at all a "romantic" place, and it can get pretty busy and noisy with kids all over the place running around...Not upsetting, unless your not in that mood.

    I would not recommend the hotel. When I checked in I saw many, many tiny bugs all over the white sheer drapes. I went to the front desk and they said that was a frequent problem b/c the bugs come from the balcony. I moved to another room in which the bugs were not inside but all over the window outside the balcony. It was disgusting. It made me wonder why there would be hundreds of bugs hanging on each balcony. Also the room was not really clean. The condition of the sink--with black goo and hair on the faucets, was awful. The bathroom is also tiny.



    My husband and I stayed at the Embassy Suites On Saturday the 16th of October. They allowed us to check in at 10 am and the desk staff was courteous and very efficent. (We are a member of Hilton Honors and also recieved a AAA discount. You might mention either of these when booking).The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. They also had an excellent view. The happy hour was great and actually had a pretty good selection for a free bar. The bartenders were so nice too. That night my husband and I went to dinner on the Plaza and the free hotel shuttle was happy to take us there the minute that we called them. They run until 10:30. The breakfast in the morning was really good and had a great selection. Our check out was even easy. Overall, the stay was wonderful and a great deal for your money.

    Although not as nice as some Embassy Suites, the rooms were clean


    Although not as nice as some Embassy Suites, the rooms were clean and a comfortable size. It's true that the walk to the Plaza is quite a hike but the friendly staff is very willing to take you anywhere you want to go in the van. In fact, the day the van was in the shop the hotel payed for me to take a taxi to and from the downtown area and did the same for others going to the Plaza. I would consider staying there again.

    Nice staff, but...


    I recently went to the Embassy Suites Kansas City for my family reunion. Overall, the stay was nice. However there were some problems.

    Great Hotel with a lot of character


    My husband and I and our two kids (aged 14 & 8) stayed three nights at this Embassy Suites. The upsides are many! Great rooms with nice view from walk out balcony, good restaurant, nice pool & pool area (even a steam room - Wow!), friendly staff, beautiful atrium, fantastic cooked to order breakfast, & a nightly managers reception with free drinks.

    Loved it, great service


    Beautiful lobby and nice rooms. My husband and I loved Kansas City, Mo. Very friendly, clean city, well layed out and some of the best restaurants and entertainment we've had in years and we travel frequently!

    Excellent, one of our most memorable hotel stays!


    We went here for a get away weekend and loved it. The hotel lobby is beautiful, and the double decker pool with conjoining waterfall is as beautiful as it is unique. Of course the complimentary cocktails and hot buffet breakfast that are the Embassy Suite trademark, are as nice as they are at any hotel to which we've ever been. The rooms are large, and comfortable. The location is fantastic, just about three blocks from the Plaza, one of Kansas City's nicest areas to spend a day. We loved it and will be back again some day.
