It has always been pleasant when staying here-even though that was years ago for me. I have received update comments from others of how nice the hotel and amenities are. Rooms are clean and good sized.

Unique Qualities: Great lobby and decorative vegetation covering 5 levels with a waterfall. This hotel has a history dating back to early 1970's when the center opened. It had massive limestone moved; like 375,000 cubic feet. It was carved into the hill and stands 70 feet above ground level at the peak. Great views. Connection to Union Station via a bridge walk across. Benton's restaurant is on top and a fabulous place to eat fine food and blow money.

Address: 1 E Pershing Rd, Kansas City, MO 64108
Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Right at Crown Plaza and across from Union Station
Price: US$120-180
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
