Wintertime is a slow time for most hotels, therefore it is the BEST time to get GREAT RATES!!! Our experience was significantly improved by contacting Jim, the Guest Services Manager of the Aladdin, before we visited the hotel. Jim hooked us up with a great corner room, very modern and updated, with an excellent view of the surrounding Marriot Hotel's lit up wall, the snow covered park withlights on the trees and a location which is walking distance to any downtown entertainment or cuisine - any time of the day! We werealso one block from the Cosentinos market, where we stocked up on snacks for the weekend, which helped us on our budget!
The service was awesome! The front desk poured up champagne upon our arrival and checked us in quickly and efficiently. The tiny elevators added a touch of old charm and lifted us up to our room.
The corner room is a must-have here and although the furniture and bed were updated, the bath tub needed a little resurfacing and the heater was pretty loud when it kicked on. I also slept a little funky, maybe it was the pillow, or maybe it was the concert I attended, but I woke up with a kink in my neck. Hmm? For thses reasons, I gave the hotel lower marks. However, I truly enjoyed the stay overall. I never did get a chance to try the restaurant, although I hear great things!
The parking was decent, I actually found off street parking two out of the three days I stayed, which also helped with my budget.
I would definitely stay here again! The rates are TOO GOOD TO PASS UP for such a unique KC beauty. Lots of history and cool secret hallways to check out, a fancy ballroom up top and charm to win anyone over.
