Rated 3 out of 5 by Kennysmom Rooms are very dated
We had a suite with a parlor room and the room decor was very dated and the carpets were stained. Not what I expected for the suite. Also, some of the lobby decor is similar to what I remember from when I stayed there in the 1980s. In addition, we had trouble getting hot water for a shower and then cold water when we needed it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bosgad Hotel needs improvement in several areas
Rooms need more attention, neatness,cleanliness. I participated in the Green program which I think is good idea. However a few of my requests for replacement items were ignored or were incomplete. Food should be improved. Fitness room is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigRedJim Great Holiday Experience!!!
A beautiful hotel with both the Crown Center mall and Link passageways directly connected to it. The hotel, shops, attractions, and surrounding area are all well decorated in the holiday spirit. A must do for holiday season lovers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrPR Great Service Overall
Excellent service and friendly staff. Dustin at the Front Desk provided the best service during our stay. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and efficient.
Some improvement in the friendliness and helpfulness of the Club Lounge staff would make our stay even more enjoyable.
Wonderful view of the Union Station at night from our Platinum-upgraded suite. The remodeling of the lobby area is almost done. Look forward to seeing it soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brad1000000 Great Hotel, Great Service
Surely this is one of the older Westin hotels, but it has been maintained fairly well. The elevators are original, so they can have slower service at busy times (check in/morning), but it wasn't frustratingly long. Parking is a pretty good deal ($16/night) and the club lounge is comfortable and provides a nice spread in the evening and morning. The night I was there, four types of salads were served, as well as the typical cheese/fruit trays. In the AM they had real oatmeal and very good breakfast sandwiches (egg, cheese, bacon) as well as pastries and cereals. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hotel and the pleasant staff, and will surely stay here on my return to KC.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RochelleRN Heavy Boards!
Booked this hotel with expectations of it being "The Westin" which I have always been amazed by. The Heavenly Beds we started calling Heavy Boards as I am pretty sure sleeping on a rock would have been more comfortable. Fighting the sheets all night since the flat sheet used instead of a fitted sheet wouldn't even cover the mattress. And then the 15thousand layers of extra stuff smothered you and wouldn't stay in place. The pillows were crispy and crackled in our ears all night and the cases didn't even cover the pillow completely. Now we move onto the bathroom where immediately could tell it was in need of an overhaul, but the mold under the edge of the tub in clear view as you sat on the toilet was inexcusable! After looking through every drawer to find a hotel brochure we were surprised to find a refrigerator and microwave! Too bad it was after we threw our leftovers away assuming we didn't have one. Something the greedy bell hop could have informed us about for the huge tip we felt compelled to donate to him. And then the food is last...good taste but seriously? $15 for a simple hamburger or quesadilla? And since it was Mother's Day the morning of our departure...a nice buffet was set up for the slight charge of $35 BUCKS A PERSON! Who does that? Needless to say we will never return to this place!

Rated 1 out of 5 Beware of random charges on your hotel bill
The Westin Kansas City allows random people who eat/drink at the Brasserie restaurant to put their tab on your room bill. Don't ask the front desk for help as they are clueless. I recommend you go to the Brasserie yourself and hope a helpful manager can help you sort things out or else good luck with your dispute. It seems that at this Westin the front desk staff training leaves a lot to be desired. There is nothing more annoying than trying to settle a hotel bill during your vacation because of the mistakes of incompetent non resourceful staff.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ValentinesTears Ruined Valentines GetAway!!
1. They booked 600 kids with band instruments on Valentines weekend and did not put bellhops on elevators to control kids play. (took over 20 minutes to get off room floor.
2. No wash clothes provided
3. Called front desk for help. They would transfer call and noone would pick up for help with problems
4. Ordered wrong size coffee filters for coffee makers. When notified they did not correct the problem.
5. Towels had holes in them.
Do I need to continue. You get the point.
