This elegent hotel is situated on a hill overlooking the Plaza. The Plaza is a vast area of fine stores and restaurants, separated from the hotel by Brushy Creek. Ask for a room that overlooks the Plaza and you get Brushy Creek as a bonus. The downtown area of Kansas City, MO is not a walkable distance; but if you don't need to be downtown, this is the place to stay.
We drove into the hotel entrance and were greeted by Dave - Lucky for us because he knows the city and gave us directions to return our car. Next we met Navada and her able partner Larry at the front desk. Navada is a person we will never forget - always cheerful and extremely helpful in making our stay memorable. Our next new friend was Trenton, a concerage who can help you find anything you want or need, be it in Kansas City, MO or Nice, France. Do not miss the InterContinental brunch on Sunday. This grand presentation was presided over by Cheryl, and is indeed grand. My only wish is that hotel guests realized that Sunday Brunch at the InterContinental is special and would refrain from wearing shorts and/or T shirts.
The three folks I have mentioned made this weekend better than others, and are the kind of people we have met at InterContinental Hotels. Our first stay at one was in Hamburg, Germany; and I remember thinking at the time that most hotels do a good job but something makes this place special. Of course it had to be the people who worked so hard to make our visit so very enjoyable. Now we have another to add to our list, and one we will never forget.
