goodbye for a week of adventure.
Well, I was so hyped up and so tense, it didn't occur to me that
the directions would be more confusing than helpful. Although I did
arrive in Missouri eventually at three in the morning, I was still
two hours away from my original destination. I went through Laura
Ingalls Wilder Historical District and also went along the ...
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 ...
... anybody including us New Yorkers. The register line of three people took about 20 minutes or so because the only local currency seemed to be these paper leaflets pulled from a small book of sorts. It required filling out a small form, identification, signature and what seemed to be five other steps. When it was my turn, the clerk seemed shocked when I did not present a check. Instead, I had one of those newfangled plastic cards. Mine was so high ...
... famous horses that had moved on to even greener pastures. Tomorrow we arrive at Cherry Hill Park Campground in Maryland and plan to use it as our base for at least five days of seeing Washington, DC and surrounds. This highly rated park is only 11 miles out of Washington, has access to great transportation and tour opportunities and even has a dog walker. That could take the pressure off us. Looking forward to getting there. Barb and Duke are well. Stay safe everyone ...

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!
