Yes i meant it, their little cafe/bar restaurant will serve you a great meal. It's no place to entertain clients but after a lousy day of travel I didn't feel like taking the hotel van to any local places. What a surprise, the meal was great and totally exceed expectations. The van will take you back & forth to the airport so you can check in your rental car early, go to the airport and pick up the van. Plus they will take you to a local place where there is shopping and restaurants. The rooms are only average and have paper-thin walls. But the architect wisely chose a wall thermostat that allows you to turn the fan from auto to on, providing white noise to hide the noise from neighbors. There is no free breakfast at this one, unless you are a Platinum member. All of the staff was great !

I would definetevely recommend this hotel for any kind of trip! The staff is very nice, and veru willing to help! We needed a conference room in the last minute, and eventhought they were full, they manage to clean one very fast, and get it ready for us.
Rooms were in the right size, very cozy, and quiet. The heating unit work perfectly, which was very nice becuase outhere was 6°F. The only thing they can improve is the breakfast, as they do not had a lot of fruit, or a nice oatmeal (the one they had did not looked good), but in the over all is a very good option in the área.

We recently stayed at this hotel while visiting with family. Holiday Inn picked us up at the airport and took us back to the airport after our stay. This service was nice to have since we didn't need a car. My family drove in to KC to meet us and drove us around. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. We plan on staying here again when we fly into MCI to visit family!

I had a king room and it was great. The women at the front desk were extremely helpful and the offers complimentary drop off and pick up to any local spot. The lobby restaurant was excellent ( try the ribs). Best continental breakfast I've had in a long time.

I could not believe the excellent rate I got at this hotel for being so close to the airport. Nice hotel, wonderful staff and such a huge parking lot for those traveling with larger vehicles or groups. I just stopped in by chance and am so glad I did. It's an older building but all renovated with a true warm feel to it. I won't stay downtown ever again with this availability near the airport and yet close to downtown.

I try to stay at holiday inn express whenever i travel. This hotel offered free breakfast and complimentary drinks monday thru thurs from 530-700 pm. The rooms were clean. Service was good no complaints, however the hotel could use an upgrade. The only reason i stay at this particular holiday inn was because my usual place was booked. Its only 5 mins away. The holiday inn express by Tiffany Springs-N Polo is my ♥.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights while participating at an event at the convention center next door. After a long drive, our check-in went very smoothly and we were given vouchers for drinks in the hotel bar -- how nice! Fun and friendly bartender!

The buffet breakfast was filling, and the serving staff were very efficient given how many people were in there for a quick bite before the conference next door. Great coffee. The buffet is a little pricey though, so if you're not a big eater you're better off ordering off of the menu (or if you stay at Holiday Inns regularly and build up points, you might get a free breakfast if you are lucky).

Due to timing issues of our convention, we asked the front desk if we might be able to extend our checkout time by an hour. They were very helpful with this, and the cleaning staff was very friendly and helpful.

Overall, this is a good location if you are needing to stay near the airport; but it's an excellent location if you are going to be at the convention center (there's a covered walkway that leads from hotel to the center).
