... Chop House. The exterior was very modern, with outside contemporary couches and silver tables. Fortunately for us, (we like the old school look) we found dark wooded floors, bar, chairs and tables(with white linens of course). We were seated right away. Apparently Monday evenings at 8:00, not many in the area out for a ...
... city. However, it is tight up there. Just enough room for people to stand and look out and then someone to pass behind them. We stayed up there long enough to snap a few pics and then headed back down. The cost for the museum tour was $14 pp. Well worth it.
Next up, we drove to the President Truman Library museum and toured that. It was $8 pp. We thought it was amazing that the museum had so much personal artifacts of ...
After checking into our hotel, Exit 12 Independence Missouri...home of President Harry S. Truman, we decided to check out one of the suggestions on a list of BBQ joints in the area, given to us by the concierge. The place we decided on was Exit 11 off of I-70 and it was called Gates BBQ. The atmosphere was electric from the minute we walked into the joint. You wait in line like you are in a mcdonalds, but ...

Jeff did ask me a question as I was putting in the 4th cd: "how many disks are there?" I think that was my cue that he really wasn't listening. What do you think? Hope everyone is doing well.

From there we headed to Kansas City to see the Steamboat Arabia museum. I really enjoyed that museum too. So many artifacts recovered from that steamboat of the 1850s and I wish I had some of the *********** display. I could make all kinds of nice furniture using that hardware and it was in very good condition. All in all it was a good ...

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.
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!)
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).
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!
