“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

My wife & I stayed at Harrah's Kansas city 26-29 Dec 2011 and had a great time. We stayed in the Las Vegas tower. The room was very clean and quite large for a standard room. It had 1 king bed, couch, Chair, coffee table & desk/chair. It was also equipped with a refrigerator which was handy. The TV was a little out-dated but the bed was real comfortable.The bathroom was also large with a big tub and separate shower with a toilet in a room off the bathroom. The casino was a little on the small side but we did quite well playing there. Casino & hotel employees were all very polite and helpful. There are 4 other casinos nearby, Ameristar, Isle of Capri, Argossy and a small Indian casino(7th Street casino) in kansas city KS. We didn't have a car while we were there but Kansas City Transit has a bus(#173, Casino Cruiser) that runs every hour and goes from downtown to Isle of Capri, Harrah's & Ameristar that you can ride all day for only $3 a person. We actually took Amtrak there and that same bus also goes to the train station so we never even had to take a taxi, which saved us a few bucks. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the KC area.

Room Tip: I recommend that you ask for a room in the Las Vegas Tower, I've never stayed in the other tower...

We stayed at harrahs kc Jan 6-7 to attend the Aaron Lewis concert at Voodoo lounge.
Positives 1. The staff are all very nice. It must be company policy to make eye contact, smile and say hello. Everyone from parking lot custodians, security, casino staff, housekeeping. Everyone. It was nice.
2. The voodoo venue is great for concerts. Really enjoyed it.
3. Rooms- they are a good size and bed was super comfy. Also the bathtub is large.
Negatives 1. Drinks are not complimentary to players in the casino. Paid 3 bucks a drink on the casino floor. Hey I'm not a cheapskate...but I'm not used to paying for drinks at a casino.
2. Rooms are a bit tired, well at least our room was in the Atlantic tower. Not terrible by any means, just not new looking. More on the level of a holiday inn. bathroom amenities were basic also...shampoo, soap, lotion. 3. Found 5, yes 5 hairs in the bathtub. I'm not a princess, but Yuck.

In closing: book a room in the emerald tower, check the tub before you get in and bring a fist full of ones for cocktail service. Overall good stay and I would stay here again.

Conservative Poker players that can be run off with an all-in bet.
Had a remarkable time that left me feeling more confident not just in Poker. Much of this came from the friendliness of the staff.The Chirstmas trees were beautiful also.This Harrah's needs only to be closer to home to be perfect.

I really like the rooms here. The bed is comfortable and the room is super-dark which I love. They have the really plush towels, which most hotels do not. The only complaints I have...$12 internet.....and my bathtub wasn't clean. Their was a washcloth hanging on the shower rod...not sure why people put these up there because I can see how that might be easy to miss, but the curtain also had mildew/mold on it.....which SHOULDN'T be missed. I was given a free voucher for the buffet after contacting customer service. I had signed up for this my first visit back in August and told I would get it in 4-6 weeks. The food was pretty good there, but some of the desserts were a little stale.

I'm not sure what others have referred to with respect to the staff as we found each and everyone to be friendly, polite, helpful, pleasant. Whenever we passed an employee in the hall, etc, we were always given a smile and a big hello. Our room - while maybe not fancy - was very clean and comfortable. The big deep tub was a very pleasant surprise. Casino has a nice selection of game choices and dealers/bartenders/waiters/waitresses we a pleasure to interact with. My only neg would be that the casino is a bit smokey when you first walk in and there's no "sit down" restaurant for breakfast. On that point - though - the Corner Grill was a nice alternative. I'm sure we'll be going back.

Staff all over the casino were very pleasant - even those just walking in the hotel. We had a free upgrade to a junior suite - VERY nice. It's a real treat to have a separate seating area. The bathroom was larger than some hotel rooms. Only drawback was if a person was in bed and one in the sitting area they couldn't both see the TV without looking some from the side. But was very roomy, clean and comfortable. Casino is good - variety and large yet can find your way around. Bars and Ticket redemption machines were easy to find. Definitely won on some machines which is a plus. Seems like these days when one goes to a casino you only find one winning machine a night. It can be a long walk from a room to the casino since the casino must be on the river so wear comfortable shoes. We ate at the sports bar - the French dip was excellent. You can buy some beer at the gift shop too which is nice for a hour break. I haven't been to any of the other casinos in Kansas City area so don't have any comparisons for them. Families wouldn't find this as good an option because there is no pool. I miss that too. But again, cleanliness, resources, casino flexibility and staff pleasantries make this a good stop.

Room Tip: Ask for upgrades if they have them. If you have a hard time walking ask for a closer room.
