The BEST thing about this place is the ready availability of sheltered parking directly beneath the structure! If anyone's familiar with Kansas, the State experiences weather extremes nearly all year. From the 90's-100's with high humdity to well-below-freezing with ice and snow in the winter. Having protected, ~temperature stable protection for ones vehicle puts this fine establishment squarely in the, "elite" category for me. AND, "double-elite" for summer stays in my BLACK car!
Other: the staff's friendly and the rooms are comfortable as THE UPHOLSTERY's not worn out (getting to be an unusual trait!). Beds are very comfortable as well! Now - if they could just attach lanai's to the upper floors ala nearby Marriott Courtyard... Other nice touches: decent and accessible guest laundry and every weeknight there was a Manager's Reception with a free drink for anyone attending ("gratuity not included'). I never attended the latter, being an anti-social type, so can't comment on the Lobby Bar.
BAD-but-if-one-has-to-gripe-about-anything: TINY television and outrageous pricing on amenities from store on the premises. AND, no free breakfast (also getting to be typical!)
In what's getting to be a regular occurrence, I tried to extend my Priceline reservation and was denied unless I was willing to pay the standard rates at nearly double my bid price. Oh well!
