Historical Traveler Reviews Q Hotel & Spa Kansas City
Stayed here for two nights with another couple so we could golf and the wives could shop.
Great location right in Westport. It was handy when we all got back together so we could bar hop and eat.
The free shuttle to Country Club Plaza was great so the wives didnt have to drive to shop.
The breakfast buffet was very good, and the nightly managers reception was nice, but do not expect top of the shelf.
Room was very small, but that was OK with all of us as we were not there much.
Would stay here again
Run Far Away
This hotel was horrable, and thats being nice. Our first room was nasty and looked like someone had already 'used' the bed with their girlfriend. The second room we got the bed was damp with what looked like urine. It was not untill 1 am that we got a room we could sleep in. The only thing that was good was the breakfast buffet. But that was still not worth the stay at the hotel.
Great vlaue, good staff
The Quarterage is not well known to the people outside of Kansas City. What a pity! It is a delightful hotel with a friendly staff, excellent breakfast and only a few (10-15 minutes) from the heart of this busy city. It is a gem. It is convienient to a high end shopping and dining area.
Good hotel in Westport; good value
We chose the Quarterage because of the location in the Westport area, near lots of restaurants and shops. It was within walking distance of our favorite Kansas City restaurant, Thai Place. The front desk staff was welcoming and efficient; the evening reception with complimentary drinks was lovely; and the breakfast was large and hearty, with lots of choices. Our room had two beds and was small, but perfectly adequate. We'll stay again when the occasion arises as we thought the Quarterage was a good value.
The atmostphere at the quarterage was wonderful. We felt very welcomed and treated with respect. I would say this hotel was one of the best we've stayed at. The price was right and were quite comfortable.
Stay here and you've been drawn and "Quarterage"ed
Rooms are small and slightly worn. The air conditioning was out and we were not notified of this until we called down to the front desk. They said that the a/c would be working by 9 pm. It's now 10pm and still no A/C. The entire hotel didn't have batteries for the TV remote control. Avoid this hotel until they get some batteries and A/C.
Fine inexpensive accomodations
This hotel is very centrally located and inexpensive for the size room. Hotel was clean, staff helpful, parking and breakfast included. The hotel compares to a Marriott Courtyard in quality and I had a good stay there in Sept 2003, and will stay there again in Sept 2004 when I return to Kansas City. I had booked through SkyMiles Dining and got a great rate as well as bonus Delta Miles.
An inn IN the city
We met our internet baseball group there for July 4th holidays and were pleased with our stay there. The staff was very helpful with directions and maps to where we wanted to go. Taxis were quick and all we needed to do was let the front desk know when we needed one. The location is great as it is near the restaurants, pubs, and bars (many, many that our group enjoyed) and within walking distance to the Plaza shopping district (shopping heaven), but still provided a quiet and restful atmosphere. Parking is free as is breakfast (make your own Belgian waffle!)
The rooms are average for hotels of comparable price and I would have given even higher marks if they would upgrade their sheets and bedding to a notch higher.
I had been to KS once before and stayed at the Hyatt at the Crown Center (large, convention hotel) for business and I would say that the Quarterage provided a different experience of KS, smaller, in a "funkier" neighborhood and less "touristy."
Nice, but probably won't return ...
My husband & I like to support locally owned, non-chain hotels, big reasons why we chose the Quarterage. We also liked the idea of free parking and free cocktails, and we got a rate on the internet that with taxes ended up being abour $100. We don't know Kansas City very well, and mostly just stopped for some barbecue. The neighborhood is nice, with lots of cafes & pubs, (although you would have to drive to go 'shopping,' and to find the best jazz or BBQ places). Our reception wasn't very welcoming -- the only receptionist seemed occupied with another guest. Cocktails are served in the simple breakfast room downstairs, rather than the nicer lobby (and on a Monday we were pretty much the only ones there -- although the 'bar tender' was very nice).
Our room was nice (& quiet), but looked pretty much like your standard hotel room in Anywere, USA (although I've stayed in $200-$400 rooms that looked much the same.) I agree breakfast was good, but the noisy businessmen having a loud breakfast meeting and talking on their cell phones made it a lot less enjoyable. I'd say the hotel is geared much more towards the business traveler; don't go looking for a unique hotel or for romance.
Loved the Quarterage
This is a great place to stay. They offer excellant service and were more than helpful with any request or question I had. Their breakfast was wonderful, not only offering fresh fruit, waffles and bagels but also biscuits/gravy, eggs and sausage. Very close to shopping and other activities. If I had to say one thing I didn't like it would be that the rooms are small (we had two adults, two children). Overall I would highly recommend!

Topeka to Independence what a ride. There is no signs saying you are crossing the state line. So we missed a picture opportunity. We will try and make it up along the way. We had visitors this evening Jeff, Beth, Jenifer, & Chandi stopped by our hotel. We had a great visit with them. Miss Chandi looked great after all she has been ...
After Denver (our halfway point- yeah!), we drove another long stretch of US highway (which included the first 8 miles of the interstate highway system constructed in the '50s) to Kansas City, KS. During our stay we had "Oklahoma Joe's Kansas City BBQ" which Anthony Bourdain christened as one of thirteen ...
... impression might be wrong: we didn't expect much, and so we weren't disappointed.... ;-) What's noticeable is that that there is no green and no flowers at all, and the City Center features the Police Station as the main building (again, that is the Kansas side, not the Missouri side).
Now it gets ...

It's not a typical built up City, they have a plaza that's a few blocks wide and based on Seville, with lots of really nice fountains, and other Mediterranean features- it's one of the top places I want to return to :-) We went to Jack Stack BBQ restaurant, and had a delicious meal, we were full to bursting point as it was so nice we couldn't stop eating!!!
