First our room was cool, despite the portable air conditioner sitting in the bedroom and could have been a tripping hazard We noticed our room was 1of 2 with this kind of unit being vented out the window Second when we got ready to use the hot tub, it didn’t work

When I asked the desk, I was told it was out of order and they probably should get a sign up Then after I showered I looked all over the room for a hair dryer, nothing So I tried to call front desk, and the phone didn’t work So I got dressed and went to front desk I was told they were in the process of replacing the hair dryers I asked if they had one I could take up to the room and was told no The motel wasn’t full, but no offer to get one from another room Finally when we went down to eat, I thought a bagel might be good When I started cutting it, the guy next to me who had just tried fixing a bagel told me good luck that I might need a chainsaw Threw it away, went for eggs, they were cold Ugh! Definitely not a good stay


Hotel was very dirty- bathroom had hair all over it The room did It appear to have been cleaned in some time

Rooms are out dated and not maintained Bed was overly firm We were traveling with other families and they had ants in their room Hotel staff sprayed but did not offer another room or to compensate them Breakfast was not good Entire hotel needs a good scrub down and remodel Only plus is it’s proximity to things Would not recommend

Erica Sharp

They were short staffed on our weekend stay We paid for the highest room for a couples getaway and our floors were not well cleaned, the remote for the TV didn’t work, the bed and pillows felt so hard and lumpy and the front desk couldn’t be inconvenienced for anything I can appreciate the low staff causing stress, but rudeness when we call and make a request is not acceptable

Won’t be going back and not worth what we paid It’s a bummer because the jacuzzi suite has great potential

Reunion turn out great 2 Nice outdoor spaces Pool was nice, had towels at the pool

Was a busy pool Breakfast was good Rooms were extra nice Had a conference room for the weekend We used it all the time All the staff was very accommodating Watch the parking If you don’t have a pass visible in your car, you might get towed I will go again

Ramon Fierros

Christa (Front Desk Attendant) and Chase (Manager) are friendly, professional, and competent Location is excellent Hotel pool and basketball court are very nice

Constructive FeedbackRooms need these improvements:1 Replace the AC units (end of life)2 Install a shower door to prevent water from the shower spraying to the bathroom floor3 Shower floors are slippery Potential for people slipping and getting hurt Provide a floor mat and install a hand rail on the inside of the shower4 Housekeeping could pay better attention to detail when it comes to cleaning the rooms In particular, trash under the extending sofa, some leftover hair in the shower, and vacuuming the cornersThese improvements will bring the hotel up to Marriott standardsHope this helps


The location of the hotel is great, but that is the only positive I can giveThe room I stayed in was pretty gross, there were hairs in the bathroom shower and floor from previous guest, there were crumbs on the floor as if a vacuum was never used, and the walls/doors were truly filthy – they all had dirty splash marks, just overall very dirty You would think that for the ridiculous amount they charged the room could have been cleaner

The breakfast was also blah When I checked out I told the person at the front desk about my experience, he was apologetic and polite but that was about itI had stayed at this Marriott several years ago and my experience back then was much different which is why I chose to stay again, but that will be the last time I give this hotel my business You can do better Marriott!!!

Natalie Ellis

I was very underwhelmed by the Fontaine I had hoped it would live up to its “4-star” reputation but it’s way overpriced and needs more updating and maintenanceAn issue I had was that they advertise the prices to appear really low on Google

I was seeing in generic searches $112 a night That is absolutely not going to be the case We recently stayed 2 nights in a basic room and ended up paying $630 (including parking)As others have said, for the price, I would’ve expected more amenities They did have a rooftop bar which was nice, but the rooftop pool is really tiny No spa, very limited dining options, no robes in the rooms, etcThe lobby is nice and the shared facilities look the best But the individual rooms themselves need TLC Chipped paint, scuffs, rusty metal items…again just not what I expected for the star rating and costI don’t mind paying for excellence, but I wouldn’t stay again unless the rate was substantially decreased The value just wasn’t there for me

Ashley Lardino

You are only paying for the convenience of the location The lobby is beautiful and gives the illusion that you are staying at a very high end hotel The staff was very friendly

However, the room is very very basic And as in other reviews, our room was dirty The fridge had not been cleaned and had what looked like chocolate milk all over the inside It was dusty and the floors were dirtyThe only “luxury” was the walk in shower with the rainfall shower headThe rooftop pool was so small and the whole area was cramped It was hard to move around and uncomfortableI would not recommend this hotel if you are wanting a getaway for a special occasion Incredibly over priced for such an under whelming experience

Allen Pepito

Today, I planned a surprise reservation for my boyfriend’s birthday which is not for couple more days I’ve been in contact with Micheal Wallace in preparing for that day He has been kind and quick to respond to All (yes there were multiple interactions) my emails

The Fontaine hotel is mine and my boyfriend’s favorite stay-cation spot We have chosen to stay there 4 times now because of it cleanliness and beautiful rooms They also have an amazing rooftop pool and restaurant/bar The location is incredible since it is close to multiple restaurants and store at the plaza The parking is easy to find in the parking garage which has access to the hotel through an elevator Anyways, the customer service that I’ve receiving from Micheal in just planning this special night has been exceptional I just want to give a BIG THANK YOU to him for everything he has done

This is a historical landmark, which adds to the charm of this beautiful prohibition era hotel The rooms are a nice size If you like to have a drink I definitely recommend the speakeasy which is hidden behind the front desk wall

You enter through a hidden door downstairs in the basement The bar lounge is beautiful though and has a decent amount of nicely appointed seating My only issue with this hotel sometimes is the front desk staff doesn’t seem to be attentive to the guests’ needs It’s like they don’t want to be there If that changed, I would definitely give this place 5 stars

Kimberly J

I was a bit worried to stay here after reading some of the other reviews but was pleasantly surprised While they clearly have staffing shortages and are having to cut some corners the overall experience is pretty good The rooms and decor are unique compared to your average hotel, and if you get the bathtub room you are in for a treat

My check in experience was smooth and my room was clean enough All of the important surfaces (bed, tables/chairs, bathroom fixtures, main areas of floor) were very clean and free of stains While I would expect a 4 star hotel to be spotless, I wasn’t planning on using the space behind the chair, so I didn’t mind too much that it was dusty Some of the fixtures and furnishings were defiantly showing some wear and tear and could do with a replacement The room did have a mini fridge and microwave that were both clean, and not advertised as being includedThe AC worked well, although the room did feel a bit damp It was 100 outside and very humid, but my room was able to hang out at about 67, and I was on the 19th floor The public areas however were very hot I don’t think the halls had any working AC at all They also used an air freshener scent in the lobby area that made me wonder if the hotel was hosting an axe body spray conventionOverall I would definitely stay here again They rooms and decor are a step above your average hotel The staff is friendly and the location is great I just hope they can shine up their rooms so that they can provide a truly unbeatable experience

Shelby Purdun

I was told that when I checked in I did not have breakfast included for the people in my stay, i took the employees word and it wasn’t until the third day of my stay that I was told otherwise So not only Did I pay for two adults per day(4 days, 3 nights) but then I paid for breakfast elsewhere and all that I was offered was two well drink vouchers which I was unable to use, not because they were denied but because it was closed during my available times (Visiting for business)Also, the restaurant is quiet but the food was good

I expected an Italian menu for the breakfast once I did check it out before checking out of my room, but it was a light American style Menu online site is not up to date!! The employees at that time were attentiveThe room was nice, felt crowded for a deluxe suite because of the larger coffee tableThe shower was so uncomfortable It is a half glass door and because of that you can easily get cold while showering If the switch on the wall aaa a heat lamp/fan, mine did not work and was very dusty under the cover the water pressure was OK, but the shower head pointed to the wall so no heater, poor pressure, and got chilly super easily I did expect a better bathroom due to no pics on the siteOn the features it lists a boutique, there is NO boutiqueLobby was clean and always immaculate, I just wish that the rooms/service was up to par An area for improvementThe historical features of the hotel were a nice touchOverall I rate this a 2/5 because the price is average per night here and it’s possible I could’ve stayed elsewhere and had a better experience

Christine Muehe

The room and bathroom were beautiful, spacious, and very clean The bed in the Valentine room is a low platform bed, which was fine for us The mattress is very soft, so if you have a bad back, I would suggest one of their other lovely rooms instead

There is a mini refrigerator that works really well! They have 2 stemless wine glasses, an opener, and 2 glass coffee cups in the room, so no need to bring your own The ambience is romantic and the location is superb I highly recommend

William Stamper

Stayed for 3 nights in the Southmoreland and really liked the room Nice size, nice amenities, and a wonderful balcony to sit and relax on Two complaints: (1) the Nelson-Atkins museum was closed both days we were there (bummer), and (2) we couldn’t stay longer

Loved the room, loved the grounds, loved the park/ museum proximity Next time we’re in town, we’ll book hereRecommendation: add a recycle container outside the staff area…

Heidi DeSchepper

We stayed here to celebrate my daughter’s 13th birthday It was me, my mom, and my daughter It was absolutely perfect! We stayed in the Westwood I and II and they were so clean and comfy

The bathroom was beautiful and huge! The owners were so kind and accommodating Such a beautiful home and so close to the plaza and art museum I can’t wait to come back and stay with my husband Highly recommend!

This hotel is beautiful, its staff friendly, and its location great I’ve stayed here twice now and plan to stay again as often as I can The rooms have a classic look and are immaculately clean

The building has an old soulful feel to itDuring my most recent stay, I presented a tax exemption document to the front desk at checkout time No hotel likes dealing with these, but Charlotte was patient and thorough in seeing it through, multitasking by helping other guests while she adjusted my bill I could not be more pleased with my experience

The rooms are lovely and the staff is very pleasant accommodating The young woman who checked us in made sure we had the exact room our grandsons fell in love with during our last stay The boys have chosen the Westin as their favorite place to stay in KC

The hotel is gorgeous on the inside The room was way beyond our expectations Very clean and the bed was just right

We highly recommend this place We just checked out of a room from the plaza from having a very bad experience and ended up here We could not be happier The staff is super friendly and so helpful! Totally worth the price!

Bill Smith

Overall disappointing Front desk staff was not overly friendly and did not inform me that there would be no daily housekeeping The room I was put in had a very overwhelming musty smell that did not dissipate after running the AC

The room and overall facility are very dated The outlets next to the beds were so loose it had a hard time holding my charger The mattresses were sunken in and obviously very old There was hair in the shower, and mold spores on the bathroom ceiling There was a thermostat on the wall in the bedroom however it was non-functional… you had to adjust the temperature at the window unit itself Not a big deal but it just shows how lazy they are they couldn’t remove and patch the hole on the wall where the thermostat was So they just disconnected it and left it there The nicest person in the entire hotel over the course of my stay was the Lady who made the breakfast Every morning she went out of her way to say good morning to every single person who came in Give this woman a raise! The front desk staff need to take a customer service lesson from her! The breakfast met expectations with a good variety for this type of hotel Overall very disappointing in my stay I will not be back

Deb Loiselle

Definitely a nice hotel and what I expect when visiting a Hilton property People are friendly, beds & pillows are comfortable, it’s clean, and offers a nice breakfast My only suggestion for improvement is to do better maintenance on A

C unit The one in our room was noisy and we couldn’t use it if we wanted a decent night’s sleep Thankfully we could open the window for air circulation It’s too bad there’s not a gas/convenience store nearby

fatima lynn

Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful breakfast was fulfilling and plenty for my family the beds were completely clean and comfortable The tvs in the rooms were clear and lots of great channels kid friendly the lobby and hallways smelled clean of some sent that my husband asked for the name so we can have it in our home Overall stay was great we will be back for another visit

We also enjoyed the close distance to mall and stadium

Catherine Landolfi

I hate having to leave this review My husband and I stayed here recently on our honeymoon and were so disappointed I read google reviews before we booked and a number of them mentioned it being dirty but we decided to go ahead and give the hotel the benefit of the doubt

The lobby was pretty dirty; we understand it was snowing outside but it still could’ve been better maintained The carpet in the hallways leading to our room were pretty dirty as well And when we arrived in the bedroom the floor was also in need of vacuuming, lots of hairs The tub had what looked like a few red crayon streaks; the soap bottles were not filled all the way; there was a half used roll of toilet paper in the bathroom in addition to a full one By the fake tree there was a rose petal on the floor, definitely not ours There was a chunk of something in the bottom of the mini fridge Also pretty noisy being New Year’s Eve We’ve stayed in cheap hotels that were much more sound proof and a lot cleaner Overall very disappointed for the price we paid and for all it’s hyped up to be The lady at the check out desk was not very friendly and didn’t ask how our stay was This is a beautiful unique building and has a ton of potential but definitely needs better management

Nickole Bribiesca

Everyone was very sweet and awesome Which made the stay pleasurable Learn the pricing before you order, I’m not sure we ever see the breakfast pricing and was surprised at the bill but you absolutely pay for convenience

Things were clean and worth saying again- staff is amazingPerfect placement being close to anything you can think of while also being slightly tucked away The traffic and hustle of the Legends down the street has no effect of the peaceful and romantic ambienceI would recommend to anyone looking for a nice getaway or staycation that can afford the luxury the Chateau Avalon provides It’s not a budget hotel but again, provides the luxury you would pay for

Akimi Weller

Hotel when walking in is not very inviting We got checked in and went straight to our room The front desk gave us two vouchers for drinks since they couldn’t get us in for couples massage

The room was not how the pictures show it We got the Lincoln room which felt smaller than I was thinking it would be There’s no closet space to hang clothes or coats The hot tub does get very hot and filled up Their bar is what we loved the most The service in the bar was very pleasant and their drinks very tasty Bed in our room very comfortable

We had a lovely stay here for two nights Our room was large and well appointed, and the bathroom was big and all marble, with a no- fog mirror The hotel was beautiful, very clean, tastefully done

The online check-in was quick and easy, same for checkout There was music in the bar, which was lovely, and the bartender, Robert, was delightful We really loved having a balcony and a nice view of country Club plaza, and we were close to everything The beds were really comfortable, with one firmer pillow and one that was soft and comfy The restaurant was great, and our breakfast was really nice All the hotel employees went out of their way to do whatever they could for usWe did have an issue with the A/C, since I’m always cold and we could not get it warm enough, so we just turned it off The only thing I could suggest is a towel rack in the bathroom by the vanity, that would make things easier, but overall everything was amazing We’re planning on returning, and possibly staying at the concierge level next time Beautiful hotel!

First stay here Hotel is beautiful and spotless Staff are personable and professional

Although requests weren’t spot on the first time, either wrong room or forgot something, every measure was taken to ensure requests were fulfilled Wait and cleaning staff were especially top notch with care attention you’d expect in a five star resort Salad at American Slang restaurant was perfect Rooms were above average, with robe and slippers Management seems somewhat new in the profession but adapting Overall a great great experience

LaRhonda Boone

My husband and I had an impromptu date night The room and staff were amazing I highly recommend the concierge package so you can have access to the VIP lounge

Don elevated our experience to make it an unforgettable night There were several people waiting to check in and Jacob, who was walking out the door for the night, stepped in and helped everyone get checked in quickly We cannot wait to stay again

Best staff ever!! Rooms were comfortable, they even had a comfy roll out that we used with everything in the cabinet Huge bathroom, set up for three people, enough towels and tea tree shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the shower The shower head had different settings

The only con for our room was it needed and extra mirror

Okiegirl 60

We stayed 2 nights and recieved no maid service while we were there You have to stay 3 nights or longer forFresh towels, trash removal or clean sheets! I asked for clean towels at the desk, he seemed put out to even get up

There were hockey teams that could not keep quiet Kids running everywhere I wish the hotel could put adults that want quiet in one area We won’t be back

Jonathan Pendergrass

Conveniently located next to 435 and Shawnee-Mission, after a week of vacationing with the kids my wife and I were excited to have a weekend getaway in Shawnee Unfortunately this hotel was really lacking compared to other Marriotts I’ve visitedWe got a couple’s suite just down the hall from the front desk

The bar was not operational, which was not made known when booking the stay The breakfast was subpar as well, not offering what was advertised online Their reasoning was covid which seemed to be an easy scapegoat After ordering our drinks, we watched as a couple other customers walked up, ordered, got their beverages, and then left Finally realized they were just not making our order so I had to go ask where our drinks were and they said they forgot themOnly one jet in the room’s jacuzzi was operationalThe front desk does sell individual beer and one of the beers they sell is locally made in KCMO I wish I would have taken a picture because it was delicious and I would totally give them a shoutoutI’ve had some amazing experiences at Marriott hotels, this just wasn’t one of them

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was the best choice we ever made! The room was gorgeous and cozy, the breakfasts were scrumptious, and Kathy was so hospitable and knowledgeable about the area and able to give recommendationsLots of restaurants and cute little shops within walking distance, situated in a safe area, and we never struggled finding street parkingEverything was neat and organized and we basically felt like royalty (she even learned our favorite tea to have outside our door each morning)! We will be staying here again, and we highly recommend it!

I’ve stayed here on my own twice in the last two years and I’ve never been disappointed The wrap around porch is an excellent place to relax and read The interiors are immaculate, light, airy and are charmingly decorated with vintage furniture

There are comfy beds, soft bathrobes, extra blankets, a hairdryer, everything you would need There’s been incredible attention to detail in these rooms On top of that, there’s a common area with complementary coffee, teas, snacks, and mugs and glasses The food is always top notch! From the breads and french press coffee (some of the best coffee ever) delivered to your room to the actual breakfast shared in the dining room, it’s always creatively served and absolutely delicious! My times here have been the most comfortable stays of any B&Bs I’ve ever stayed in I look forward to returning again next year!

Easily a lovable experience The room (129) was excellent! Cleaner than any I’ve stated

the bathroom and shower was outstanding That is actually the feature I enjoy most at a hotel stay and compared to the Argosy, none hold up Dual head shower, easy to operate, excellent lighting, plenty of room the only reason I didn’t rate a 5 was one particular desk person was not friendly or engaging There was no microwave or blow dryer but there was plenty of outlets for electronics!! Best room experience I’ve had in my travels and dozens of hotels!!!

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any stay This website will compare hundreds of booking web sites and normally will have rates much cheaper than others! You’re welcome :)! This hotel is one of the best in the area

I have been staying here for a very long time If you stay for a few nights you definitely won’t regret itThe Argosy is hands down my favorite Casino in Kansas City! The gaming floor is fantastic, but the hotel rooms, well they are just amazing! If you haven’t stayed here before I highly recommend doing so! You won’t be disappointed, the showers alone will have you singing the Argosy’s praises!!!


The hotel and restaurant staff are all super friendly and very accommodating The hotel room was nice, with some extras, but nothing spectacular In the traditional sense, there is no room service- just “brown bag” lunch between noon and 5 pm

If you want an actual meal, you have to go down to the concourse and wait for a table However, the food is delicious and the restaurant staff is excellent!

We loved our experience at The Truitt Hotel! The hotel is small and feels like you are staying at your best friend’s amazingly redecorated historic home We had the honor of staying in the one bedroom suite and our jaws dropped from the first moment opening the door The decor, art and style are impeccable!! The little details such as a handwritten note, local chocolates, espresso machine and snacks made us feel warm and welcome

The outdoor sitting area is SO CUTE as are the library and neon sign in the main house!The main house rooms are just as amazing! Very spacious and stylish! The only thing that made me want to get out of the super comfy bed was the thought of getting into the AMAZING shower We felt pampered and welcomed and will be returning on trips back to KC Thank you so much for creating such a gem!

Allison Domingues

I don’t even know where to start Everything about this place is incredible The historic home is gorgeous, the garden/grounds are magical, and the details and decor are perfection

Ryan and David have thought of every single detail to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable, whether you’re a local staying for one night or whether you’re coming from out of town for a longer stay My husband and I have traveled a lot and have stayed in many places, from small bed and breakfasts to large hotels, and everything in between Staying at The Truitt was one of the best experiences we have EVER had Hands down We will definitely be back and will recommend that all of our out of town friends and family stay there when visiting KC!

Kaela Varberg

The Truitt was the perfect place for our staycation! The check-in was easy and seamless The grounds are beautiful and the main house/guest rooms are unique and inviting We really enjoyed the decor, the comfortable king bed and the nod to local KC vendors in the snack options

The personalized touches including the welcome note, local treats, etc made our stay extra special! Highly recommend if you are looking for a great place to stay in KC!

We stayed at the 21c Museum Hotel the second weekend in February 2022 We chose this hotel for the art, atmosphere, and the proximity to Knuckleheads Saloon, as we attended a concert that weekend as well The staff at the hotel is approachable, accommodating and very helpful

When we arrived, we were taken care of very well by Jonathan We also received a sweet, impromptu tour by ShellyThe rooms are what you would expect from this brand We needed a refrigerator, so we called the front desk, and received one right away The hospitality at this hotel is beyond their price point honestly Some more expensive hotels could really learn a few things from them They have some really great people working here The hotel is in a great neighborhood with great food choices in walking distanceIf you visit on the weekend, depending on what’s going on, you can find free parking on the street We will be back! Also, hopefully the penguins will come out of quarantine soon, but you can still take pictures with them where they stand The hotel staff also said they will have a completely new exhibit in April Very much looking forward to this

The sofa sleeper should have been made or at least bedding available to put on it We asked that they bring bedding to the room while we were gone Returned after 5 hours and still had no bedding

I went to the desk to get them and there was no apology for not bringing them up while we were goneThe pool had a ton of chlorine in it Everyone had very red eyesBreakfast was very good

Greg Askins

This was the most expensive room we booked on a 3 week vacation to Newport Rhode Island and Charleston South carolina We stayed at some very nice places and this was not one of them We had a late arrival

Our room smelled like a mix of dirty feet and body odor What were nice rooms a couple of years ago have fallen into disrepair and neglect I realize it’s hard to find staff but these people weren’t really trying Too bad, it’s in a great location

Teresa Cole

While I was checking in there was a gentleman next to me checking in as well which I was overhearing they didn’t have his room The two employees had no clue what to do or even say to this man so it was very awkward I requested a top floor room, but wasn’t given one which really isn’t a big deal

The internet was slow at times and our bathroom sink wouldn’t drain properly We stayed two nights and on the second day we came back to our room and our room key wouldn’t work Went downstairs to get it fixed and the manager didn’t even say anything about it or even let me give my name to confirm I’m a guest He could of just given my room new number to anyone to have access to our room Overall it was okay stay

You love old and dark rooms? You like small and old TV in your Room? You prefer the slowest elevator in the world? Welcome to Ambassador KC Seriously: One of the worst hotels of the autograph collection Absolutely overpriced

It’s more like an Residence Inn or similar low budget hotels The second star is for the front desk Sorry that I can not rate otherwiseBy the way: I have no idea why I, as a platinum member, was shipped to the old part of the building with a very bad view

aaron brown

We booked a special room for our anniversary and a couple hours before we checked in the a/c went out While we didn’t get to stay in the room we wanted, Arthur and the other front desk person (sorry for forgetting name) went out of there way to make the stay great Nice on site restaurant, have to walk a couple blocks to get to other things to do

Kris R

Visited the show for my bf’s birthday Had a group show up and we enjoyed the songs and liveliness of the crowd and performer Food was okay and consider you pay about$100 per person right off the bat which includes your choice of entree and the show, a one time visit is okay

Friends had a good time and the space is very limited and with blocking columns, not all parties have the best view of the stage
