The Hotel Sorella is located about a block off of the Country Club Plaza area which makes the Plaza, the Nelson Atkins/Kemperer museums and a ton of restaurants within a mile. Add top notch bbq (Oklahoma Joe's) and the hotel's free shuttle service within five miles to the equation and you make a car-happy town into something much more walkable (provided you like to walk).
The room was spacious and well appointed, the bathroom was clean and well designed and the room has two robes to wear (which sent my teenage daughter over the moon). The staff was super nice and the complimentary breakfast hit the spot. If you have a car with you, you can valet for $18 a day -flat rate and take the car in and out as often as you like- no extra charge - although cheapskate that I am, I found street parking easily and just parked around the corner. We didn't go to restaurant but checked it out and it looked really neat.
My only complaint - is that the mini fridge in the room was stocked with stuff for purchase and had no space for a water bottle, cold packs etc... for things we wanted to keep on ice for our drive home. I am sure this could have been accommodated if I had asked.
Overall, I thought the hotel went out of their way to be clear, accommodating and helpful. The whole place is thoughtfully designed and appointed and the rooms were a steal given the location and general boutique-y feel of the place. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Hotel Sorella to anyone looking to spend some time in KC.
