There is just "something" about the bones of an older hotel. The floors are solid. The walls are thick and quiet. The doors are heavy and shut with finality. You can feel her story. This hotel rises up over the Kansas City Plaza, silently watching the comings and goings, and welcomes you back after your day. I stayed here for three days to attend a meeting with about 200 other people. Our room was on the 6th floor and overlooked the driveway. Room

626 was large, comfortable and right off the elevator. We loved our large King-Sized Bed. The room was quiet and with the curtains closed, was very dark. Sleeping on those soft pillows with the big comforter was a dream! The food at the meeting was very good, very fresh, and beautifully displayed. The wait staff was quiet and efficient. The ballroom dining area was large and beautiful. Frankly, in a large hotel, you use the elevator several times a day. The elevator at The Intercontinental was really large, heavy and felt safe! The Express Elevator even has a glass wall to see outside as you ascend to the top! But the hands down best thing about The Intercontinental is the Staff. They are Midwest Friendly with a dash of professionalism that was downright refreshing.
