I am just a traveler sitting in Room 106 at this time, and I will make this short and sweet with the list of things wrong with the hotel room.
1. There were cigarette ashes in the sink when we arrived. (non smoking room?)
2. The heater in the room was not working (staff were nice and took $30 off the room cost).
3. You can hear the dish washing staff in the kitchen. The night crew likes hard rock and the morning crew likes contemporary rock music.
4. The pipes were banging in the morning (it's an old hotel, you can understand this).
5. The loading dock is outside the window, so if you like diesel exhaust in the morning great room.
The reason for the poor rating and not the terrible rating.
1. The staff people are supper nice and just what you can expect from Kansas City.
2. What other people say is true, great hotel, great location.
In review, if you get room 106 ask for a different room. I am sure they will accommodate you. They should think about turning this room into break room for the staff, but then again that would be cruel.
