Great Service at the Bar

I stay at the KC Intercontinental at least once a month and always stop at their Slang Bar for one of the best Reuben sandwiches around served by Matt the best bartender in KC. Matt always recommends the best local bourbons and wines on tap. Always a relaxing break on a weary road trip!

Just Wonderful! June 2019!

I am impressed with how wonderful the renovations in the Intercontinental Hotel KC are looking. My family and I drive often from Omaha, NE to KC to visit friends, to shop, to dance, to eat at the very nice restaurants around the plaza area and we have stayed in several different hotels there, to name couple: The Raphael, Ambassador, Westin, Hilton, Marriott, etc, and of course, several times at your property. Your hotel location is wonderful because it is just right there at the plaza and we can just walk to shop, to eat, to enjoy the area from the hotel. This time everything was perfect. I was greeted by my name, the lovely lady at the front desk called me from my name the moment I walked in. I really loved that detail. Then everyone was so wonderful and friendly, the nice gentleman at the IGH VIP guests salon at the 11 floor, Mr. Walter, was so professional and friendly as well as all the other employees in that salon. They made us feel so especial. Always attentive and asking us if we needed anything else. Our room was Amazing and the beds SO comfortable! Very neat, clean, plus the view was absolutely perfect, the Plaza area and the lovely swimming pool – pic attached . We enjoyed listening the music at the Piano salon on Saturday evening as well as the drinks we had. This weekend I celebrated my birthday in your very lovely and perfectly well done renovated hotel and had a super outstanding time, which means we are going back soon very soon, sooner than we were planning and staying with you again. Thank you for our room 923. Please give us this room again in the future - if possible. One more time, thank you! Someone is doing a terrific job managing this hotel. Congrats to this hotel manager and management team! Sincerely, G and Family. PS: 5 Stars! Keep the great work!

We were treated so well at this hotel by the staff. Our company had meetings at the hotel all weekend and we especially appreciated HOW they treated our employees and their spouse. I would like to call out a wonderful employee of yours: Mafutani O’Neal. She was over the top fantastic. What an attitude to serve. Thank you Mafutani, we are so glad we met you!

We had an incredible trip and Craig made it so fun! The concierge level experience made it worth traveling in from all over the United States for our group to be together. We will come back! Thank you!!

We stayed on the concierge level and Craig Walter was an amazing asset to the hotel. He was friendly and helpful. The concierge level was worth the additional funds.

My room was well appointed. I actually thought they did a better job of decorating by keeping it simple with simple lines.

Had a great time.
