Comfortable and spacious room, nice meeting space
Reviewed 1 day ago

I stayed at the Intercontinental for a recent work event that was hosted in the hotels meeting space.

The guest rooms were spacious and comfortable.

The meeting rooms were a bit dark but otherwise functional. The food served during our meetings was good!

The location of the hotel is nice, near many dining and shopping options. The only downside was no onsite market where you could get things like Advil I’d forgotten.

Well past its prime
Reviewed 3 days ago

I've stayed here off and on over the years dating back to when it was the Alameda Plaza and this is a real disappointment for an InterContinental. First of all, it didn't appear that the room, including the bathroom, was very clean (there was a large stain on the bathroom floor among other things). The bathroom had other issues, too. The toilet leaked and the sink faucet leaked. One of the sink faucet handles had rusted through on the base. The bathmat looked like something I'd think twice about having in my rag bag. It was thin, worn and frayed. The bathtub stopper didn't work. There were no shower caps or other amenities besides the soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. For some reason there was only one bathrobe. The shower water was only lukewarm. Not many hangers in the closet. In fairness, there were some positives but with this many negatives of this nature why would one want to stay here especially when there are so many other better options in KC.

Thanks for reading. I’ll appreciate a thumbs up below if you’ve found this helpful.

Excellent stay

We had an excellent stay here at the plaza! The concierge floor with Craig is TOTALLY worth it. With that being said the bar was a fun experience as well. Matt was a fun guy and showed my kids several bar tricks. The few appetizers we had were great as well.

Fantastic Venue for Events

Went to an event at this hotel for the third time this year. Each time, I always seem to be served by Mafutani O'Neal. Last night, was no exception. She was there for our Real Estate event and happily serving with a smile! It's always nice to see employees excited and proud to do their job!!! Great venue, centrally located, classy place for an event.

There is no other hotel we would stay in while visiting Kansas City! Each stay is pleasant and Craig in the lounge makes our stay! Kuddos to getting it right- when we married 36 years ago, we could not afford to stay here; so glad we can now!
