Hilton Garden consistently comfortable and clean

Pros: everything
Location: Close to where I had my meetings the next day.
I've stayed in different Hilton Garden Inns across the country and they are consistently clean, comfortable, bright and airy and incredibly inexpensive for all that. The staff is always friendly . The Kansas City hotel was just as nice as the others. This is the way to run a hotel.

Home for a funeral

I arrived for a funeral on January 4th...the front desk staff was pleasant, the room was clean and nicely decorated. I needed some extra cups and the front desk staff was very helpful. The next morning i ate breakfast in the restaurant in the lobby. My omelette was good, coffee was hot and juice was fresh squeezed. Check out was simple and easy and parking behind the hotel was on a covered garage and free. It was pleasant and i would stay there again.

Starting to fray around the edges.

I like Hilton Garden Inns because they are usually uniformly clean, well-run and well-maintained. The Kansas City HGI, though is OK but doesn't meet their standards. The shower curtain had black mold in a large portion of the center, the caulking showed mold, the white duvet was quite yellow and worn, the carpet was worn and my $12 breakfast, made to order, had overdone scrambled eggs (brown) and cold, tough sausage links. The hotel staff was pleasant, but showed a lack of training at times - though the woman who made up my room was wonderful. She was thorough, obviously cared very much about leaving a clean, orderly room, and was just delightful. I wish I'd gotten her name to commend her to her bosses. One other note: I stayed on a Friday night, the night of the Royals ALCS game, and was out until 2:30 a.m. I planned to get up at 10:30 to be sure I checked out by noon. I had a full day of driving ahead of me. At 9 a.m., however, the front desk called me to remind me that I had to be sure to check out in person (which was written on the room door). This is not cool. Some people like to sleep in on a Saturday! If it's that important, then put a prominent note on the TV stand or something. (And a minor detail, but when she called, she said "I want to make sure 'you guys' check out in person." A better-trained staff would see on the chart that I was a lone woman and an even better-trained staff would have addressed me by name. Nit-picky? Perhaps. But another detail.

Great location

Pros: The hotel was nice and clean, parking was great.
Cons: Staff friendliness and accommodations.
Location: The downtown plaza is less than 15 minutes away. Power and light district is less than 10 minutes away.
Hotel was in a great location, close to the downtown Plaza and close to Power & Light District. We made reservations over 3 weeks prior and we ended up with a handicap accessible room, we called down to the front desk to be switched but they told us we couldn't switch our room. They were not accommodating or empathetic to us wanting a regular room. When we checked out the front desk clerk asked how our stay was, I told her that we wished we were given a regular room, she shrugged her shoulders and said maybe next time. The overall hotel and parking was nice, but I'll be more clear that we don't want to be put in a handicap accessible room.

Cons: The restaurant food. The bed was very hard. Airconditioner was very loud.
Location: Nothing is near by, you have to drive to find food.
Restaurant food for lunch/dinner was high priced and not good. The location of this hotel isn't near any other restaurants. You are pretty much near closed businesses in a run down part of town. Actually, walking outside of the hotel I felt unsafe. We planned to stay here because we were 15 minutes from Kansas Speedway. However, next NASCAR race we will find some other place to stay. The bed was very hard, the bathroom sink was clogged and very low water pressure to take a shower.

This hotel was very mediocre

Pros: Quiet
Cons: Nothing close, Poor breakfast
This hotel trip was the epitome of mediocre. The staff was not very helpful and seemed disinterested in their jobs. The pool and hot tub area were both unkempt. The worst part about the trip is they cleaned our rooms and took our phone chargers, while we were still guests in the room.

Nice hotel, good value

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Nothing close
Just a one night stay for business. I chose the hotel for location near my business meeting and proximity to Oklahoma Joe's BBQ. Room was clean and spacious. Fridge, microwave and comfortable seating area. Wireless signal on the fifth floor was low but worked well for what I needed. Bed firmness can be adjusted. Hotel features a boarding pass print out kiosk. I used the business center instead. Breakfast buffet was well stocked and good quality. You can get made to order items if you wish. Hotel is located in the "government" section of Kansas City, KS so there is limited entertainment nearby. That's not really an issue if you are just staying one night though. If I were conducting business nearby, I would stay there again.
