Rated 3 out of 5 by Noisy okay but one significant drawback
the sound insulation is nearly non existent. A couple staying next door came in reasonably quietly at 11pm but I could hear their conversation and when they opened their blinds, it sounded like they were in my room. This is the only reason I would not choose this hotel again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mominator Not a welcoming place
The room was very uncomfortable. No pictures on the walls, no closets or secure place to put suitcases, clothes, shoes. Pillows were very hard and made of foam which is hard on my neck and upper back. There was no comfortable place to sit - even the office chair was difficult to move and sit in. My husband requires handicapped acessability as he has a scooter and a walker, He cannot walk without assistive devices. We requested a handicapped room when making reservations. We arrived at the stated check-in time and were kept waiting for 30+ minutes in the lobby for the staff trying to find us a room. They said that there was only one handicapped accessible room in the hotel and that it was already taken. The staff also told us that there were no grab bars in any of the "regular" rooms and there was no shower chair available - when we tried to figure out a way to use a regular room and assure safety for my husband. ( Apparently another couple in the lobby at the same time gave up their room for us.) A patron with the room one or two doors from us had a "yappy" dog that barked off and on for hours. I was quite annoyed - especially when I was awakened by the barking early in the morning. We will not be returning to this hotel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RD11 Nice location and very quiet rooms
I really enjoyed my 4 night stay. The rooms and features met my expectations, with one exception, the dining area in the morning was somewhat confusing on what was complimentary, i.e. coffee etc. Also, paying for the food was somewhat awkward and slow.
The hotel was very clean quiet and well located to many nice eating or cocktails locations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nonsleeper If you dont want friendly, don't want to sleep
IF you like being treated like a number and don't want to sleep, I highly recommend this hotel.
We could clearly hear the partiers until about midnight. We asked if they could be quiet in the bar, but were told it was open until midnight.
At 1:20 a.m. we heard a very loud whistle (like a referee's whistle). Initially we thought it was the hotel alarm. When we told the manager she said we should have called at the time.
We did @ 10:25 p.m. But, oh well, it was only a night.

My wife and I stayed at the aloft hotel in Leawood/Overland Pk., KS the weekend of 9/20. The room was great. The bed was very comfortable and everything was exceptionally clean. Additionally, the facilities (bar, food options, location, etc) were everything we needed. My wife and i were pleasantly surprised by the "urban" feel, mixed with upscale class at a very reasonable price! As a preferred Starwood Member for 10 yrs, this is my first, but certainly not last

This was a very nice hotel with great shopping within walking distance. The variety of shops and restaurants was simply amazing. The only downfall was the parking was separate from the hotel and not convenient for transporting luggage

This was a lovely hotel, and the amenities were very fair given the cost. This was a valuable stay and I would definitely be back. The hospitality was 'fair', as when we checked in the staff was 'fine' but not overly friendly or accommodating just fair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ceb425 Will not stay at the aloft again
Stayed there primarily as it has a shuttle for trips nearby and to the Sprint campus. The night I checked in, and then again in the morning I was informed the shuttle was booked for a private group and not available. Unbelievable. I had to then book a rental car. Additionally, the water pressure in the shower was extremely low and the a/c seemed to blast artic air every time it kicked on the room was nearly unbearable, and I actually prefer it to be cool. I'll look for other properties next time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by beautyjunkie lot of bang or your buck
This hotel was modern, clean, well kept and in a great location.The staff was great also. My room was small but adequate. The A/C unit was loud and hard to watch TV or have a phone conversation if it was running. My mini fridge kept beverages just "slightly chilled' but my main complaint is that you have to park in a parking garage that is half a block from the hotel and hotel guests park on on third level and there is no valet parking. I am however very pleased with the accommodations for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lindy2154 Loved it!
I took my little boys to KC for a little getaway & was a bit worried that the hotel wouldn't really be family friendly but, they loved the looks of it online so, we gave it a shot! The staff couldn't be better! The rooms & common areas are beautiful! The swimming pool is only 5ft deep so, it's perfect for little ones. The patio/balcony is great! We ate breakfast out there both mornings. My only complaint is parking...while it is free it is a bit of a trek. Other than that, I can't wait to come back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ronnie11 Very Modern and good "feeling"
The hotel is located in a newer area of Kansas City. the construction is new and the facility has a "new and friendly" feel. Staff was plesent and answered questions. Design of lighting and furniture was simple and effective. Althought seating areas on 1st and 2nd floors was showing its wear.
VERY convient for walking to local theaters, shops and restaurants.
Would also work for business meetings and business travel because of the various spaces available.
Good facility and location. Will be back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JJSTX First Time Experience
Have stayed at other SPG properties and know this property is a concept aimed at a certain niche demographic. Property located above a restaurant in a "live/work/shop" development so parking is relegated to using the development's parking garage which is rather inconvenient.
Daily maid service was inconsistent (re-stocking towels, coffee supplies, etc.) and room, while meeting my expectations was not well-cleaned, e.g. surfaces not dusted, carpet insufficiently vacuumed. The property would serve well as a base for patrons seeking to avail themselves of the shopping and dining attractions in the vicinity but it is not adequate for a business traveler's needs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KW54 Not for Out-of Towners
Once inside the hotel, all was good for the most part. My main frustration with this hotel was the lack of signage to find and park and difficulty checking in.
First, I couldn't find the hotel from the street. It's in a cute shopping plaza, but there was zero signage as to where the hotel was. Once I found it, I drove up to the front to check-in. Well, there were only three parking spots available (which were taken) and three cars were double parked. I drove around three times before I found a spot across the street/circle from the hotel. Also, when I left the next morning at 6am, the same cars were still parked there.
It was great that parking was complimentary, but finding the hotel from the parking garage was difficult as it was not attached to the hotel, and there were no signs pointing you in the right direction. Since I drove around three times before I checked-in, I somewhat knew where I was. But had I not, I would have been walking around, with suitcase, trying to find the hotel.
And lastly, I appreciate wanting to go green, but a shampoo and conditioner in one is not always friendly to many women's hair and the lack of water pressure (assuming to save water) doesn't help to wash out the shampoo/conditioner.
This hotel seemed to have a great nightlight and tons of restaurants around. But overall, it was extremely difficult to find/park/check-in if you weren't from the area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amiller85 Great hotel
Great hotel close to resturants and shopping. My only complaint while small was the amount of noise. We were above the small wxyz bar and outside lounge, and there was a private party with private dj on Saturday night. It would have been nice for this to be on the first floor where all the other guests did not have to listen to rap music until midnight. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

Nice room, LOVED the shower! AC did not cool as well as I would have liked. Reading light out over the bed. Three people registered for the room, only 1 bottle of water and 2 sets of towels. Staff did bring extras upon request.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tbate60 Good location but room has problems
Biggest issue is how loud the AC unit is. I simply could not sleep, barely got 3 hours and on a business trip that is not enough. In addition there was no fridge in the room and the sink leaked.
I have stayed at the Aloft before but will be moving to another hotel down the road for my next trip to Overland Park/Leawood.

Rated 4 out of 5 Overland Park, KS Business Value Hotel
The location is great, near a number of very good restaurants, shops, movie theater and mall across the street. The hotel has good value, with pleasing modern hip designed interiors, rooms and bathrooms, bar, basic food and lounge area, and the staff is professional. There is a work out room and small pool as well. My only criticism is that the towels and sheets are a bit rough and there are no on demand movies to purchase in your room. If they address those two issues, this place would be nearly perfect!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Addie Shocked at the lack of help and attitude
Hated that there was no one to help us with luggage. Hated that we had to drag up bags to the second floor to check in. Hated that we then had to go park the car in a parking lot in 97 degrees and walk back to the hotel. Hated that we paid for a room with a "sitting" area and it turned out to be ONE chair in an empty corner. Hated the attitude of the gal at the reception desk. Hated the concept of the food station in the lobby. Would NEVER stay here again or recommend it. Cheap excuse for a "hip" hotel.
