“Great Location & Outstanding Service”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

While my visit was brief, I was very pleasantly surprised by the outstanding service afforded to me by the staff. From my initial check-in to my check-out, the front desk staff was very pleasant and friendly. Parking around the hotel is at a premium, making the valet service invaluable. The valet personnel were friendly and prompt, ready to assist any hour of the day or night.

The hotel is located in the heart of Kansas City, close to the Convention Center, the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, and the wide variety of nightlife in the Power & Light District. Ample public transportation is always available if you don't want to drive, or perhaps you're in no condition to do so.

The only reason I didn't give the Aladdin 5 stars was the lack of a microwave or fridge in the rooms. Otherwise, this is a great location for a weekend getaway or for those visiting Kansas City on business, and I will recommend it to others.

Great location to downtown Power and Light District- easy walking distance of a few blocks. We have stayed in this location and paid much more for a hotel this close to P & L. Many restaurants close by also. Sprint Center is a little longer walk but certainly walkable- about 7-10 min. Front desk staff very courteous and nice- even had glasses of champagne upon check in! The only downside is that breakfast and room service stop at 10am- a little early if you happen to stay out too late! Will definitely stay here again. Vallet is great $16 unlimited access to car in and out for 24 hrs. Can also park across the street in the deck for $12 a day but only do this if you just plan to leave your car otherwise it changes upon entry and exit!! Housecleaning apparenty also doesn't come by the room if you aren't out by noon. We left late each day so they didn't come by the room (which we were ok with) but you will have to call for more towels,etc. Most hotels in the downtown area do not have pools, including this one. But there are several great aquatic centers and pools around you can go to. We loved the Tiffany Springs Aquatic Park. It was an easy 15 min drive North of the hotel and has a great area. Large pool for lounging by or if you have kids a splash park areas as well as 2 big water slides. It was not crowded at all, nice facility, and was only $9 to get in. Plaza is only about a 10 min drive away as well and has great restaurants, shopping, movie theater located there. Union station and the restaurant Pierponts is only about a mile from hotel and is wonderful! Yes, the hotel can use some fresh paint in the rooms but overall is a great place to stay in Kansas City!

Room Tip: Less noise on the interior rooms higher up but overall quiet anywhere!

Hotel was clean, staff were very polite, and location was very close to dining and entertainment downtown. Stayed here for several nights on business and the rooms were extremely small and disappointing considering the cost. Don't believe I would stay here again unless it was necessary for business travel and meetings.

Just completed a great stay at the Holiday Inn Aladdin. We have stayed here before and decided to book a room to cap off a night of dinning at a local downtown restaurant. I booked a standard room using Priority Club points. Imagine my surprise upon checking in when I was informed by the desk clerk that we had been upgraded to an executive suite, and had our valet parking and breakfast comped. The room was excellent and the staff always courteous and obliging. Breakfast in the morning was excellent and the service fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone spending a night downtown after a show, concert, or just a night on the town at the Power and Light

We made reservations here for a concert at the nearby Sprint Center, which is within walking distance. The room had 2 queen size beds and a tiny bathroom. Beds were comfortable with adequate bedding and pillows that were clean. We had an inner room so we could see across a rooftop and the sides of buildings. Staff was friendly checking in and out and helpful when we didn't want to use valet parking. The room we had showed some signs of age, with some water damage on the ceiling and down a bit of the wall. Overall however, we slept great and loved that we could walk to our concert.

Room Tip: Ask for something in front of the hotel so you can have a view of KC.

Room was nice but small, it was supposed to have a sleeper sofa but didn't have one, mattress was something you would expect from a motel 6, No swimming pool. Lady at front desk was supposed to have extra pillow and blanket brought up, I never got it and when calling front desk I never actually got through, it rang continuously. Location was nice but over all experience wasn't great. I wont be going back.

I booked a room for an anniversary overnight date with my husband on a travel site for a great deal over Memorial day weekend. I emailed the hotel and asked if we could get a room with a view, since it was our anniversary (and we had read other reviews about views of a wall). The hotel kindly obliged us. We also checked in a few minutes early, with no problems. We weren't offered the champagne at check-in, but that was okay. it was graduation weekend for the local high schools and self parking around the hotel was full. We had found a nearby garage who let us park there for a few hours for free until graduation let out. Then we found a spot in the garage directly across the street for $7.00 a day - cheaper than the valet and in the exact same garage. The room was small, which is common for an older hotel, but clean. The bathroom was small and clean, but there was a tub, which was great to soak in. It was a great room for the price. You could tell the walls needed to be replastered under the paint, but it was still neatly painted. It is a great location from the Power and Light district, just a few blocks walking distance. We had a great weekend, and the staff was polite, even though we had limited contact with them. We didn't eat at the restaurant or the bar, so unable to comment. I would stay there again.
