We just arrived back from a weekend in Kansas City, and our experience was VERY similar to the review by Mamajdc3 ("Not What I Expected", 3/25/12). Your first encounter to this Marriott is the noise of the lobby. Between the noise and the wait (only two people at the check-in counter on a Friday night, really?), it can be unsettling to a tired traveler. We also were shuttled to the Muelenbach Towers, which appeared to be where all the teenagers were housed. It was very noisy - we were awakened at 2:38 Friday night, 3:48 Saturday night. Our room was tiny, with awkward placement of furniture (a chair that faced a bare wall), and beat-up furniture. The bathroom had a tiny shower (no tub) that a large person would not have been able to turn around in, and a loud, automatic fan that turned on with the lights (unpleasant when going to to the bathroom after the 2:38 "wake up" call). The carpet appeared fairly new, and the bed linens were updated - that's the extent of the remodel. The internet charge was insult to injury. We had stayed at the Holiday Inn Aladdin next door last year, and it was far better in comparison!
