“Nice botique hotel, small rooms.”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

I spent 2 nights in the Holiday Inn Aladdin hotel in downtown Kansas City, Mo. This was one of the friendliest hotels I have been in. Everybody smiled and greeted you where ever they saw you.
The spent megabucks remodeling and upgrading all of the rooms. They only problem is when you take an old hotel and update it you can't change the size of the rooms.

Room Tip: Excellent location if you are going to be at Bartel Hall or the convention center.

Historic boutique hotel. Beautiful old building. Rooms are tiny but nice. Stay much time there and you realize you can hear (and I mean HEAR) everything that your neighbors are saying and doing. Tempurature in the room was either very cold or very hot. The television wouldn't stay off once turned off. My husband and I got a kick out of that. Guest services were very accommodating except I did see a bell hop try to bum a cigarette off of a passer by which I thought was kind of a tacky thing to do since he was in uniform. Within walking distance to Power and Light and good restaurants and bars. Minimal items such as sodas, etc., in lobby. Beds were small but acceptable. Shower pressure was very low. Just ok for my purposes but really, wouldn't mind staying here again for the great location and overall historic significance.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. As you know we are a Nationally Registered Historic building and as such we have the bones of a 1925 hotel. We are also just as proud of the multi-million dollar renovation that we went through in order to reopen our doors. All that being said we apologize for the interruption in your stay. I have personally communicated to our entire Valet team the importance of being aware of the manner in which they speak to everyone at the hotel, even when you are speaking to a person who also works for the hotel but is out of uniform. As a team we all truly believe that the Guests Come First and strive to make ensure everyone who stays with us has a satisfactory experience.

If you still have concerns please give me a call directly. I would love to get the chance to talk to you. Have a wonderful day.

Regards,

Shara Smith-Williams

The Aladdin is an historic art deco structure that was renovated in 2007. First impression is that it's nicely done and pleasantly hip for a Holiday Inn. But spend a little time in the room and you notice its shortcomings. For example, an old and incredibly loud a/c system, wallpaper that's peeling in spots and inconsistent water pressure. The hotel is understaffed, too, as front desk employees were also doing the valet parking. When there was a rush of people needing their cars, I even saw the manager ask one of the janitors to help.

This was a great place to stay to attend a convention at the convention center (directly across the street!!!) Close to the Power & Light district for night life, and a GREAT grocery store that provided Everything you could ever want! As for the hotel itself, the Staff was WONDERFUL, the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable!!! We had an amazing time, and would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We had a king size bed and the decor was FUN!

The Aladdin is in a great location, walking distance from the Power & Light District. It's also only a couple of blocks from a ridiculously good grocery store (all kinds salads, sandwiches, coffees, bakery items, etc) where we grabbed breakfast and snacks.

The hotel has a good little bar upstairs to open.. or close.. the night! Rooms are very small but well-appointed and decorated in a very art-deco decor. We had a terrible view (odd numbered rooms) but didn't care much since we weren't in our room much.

There's a parking garage across the street where you can park your car (for about $12/day) if you wind up walking everywhere. Otherwise, you can valet at the hotel for $16/day with unlimited in and out privileges. It is not included in the price of your room.

Bonuses: Free WiFi in your room and free champagne in the lobby until 10 p.m.!

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms seem to have a really bad view.

The 3.5 star downtown hotel being sold on Hotwire is this one. This is in no way a 3.5 star hotel and Hotwire is scamming people. The hotel feels like a rundown motel 6, does not I repeat not offer parking (you have to fight for a spot on your own in a nearby publIc parking lot), there is no security, and bums rummage through room service leftovers in the hallways (this is no joke). The rooms are tiny and kind of dirty for a hotel rated 3.5 stars. This is about a 1.5 - 2.0 star hotel in a decent location close to the P@L district.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It was unfortunate that you appear to have had a stay that was not to your liking. I want to alleviate any concerns that you, or anyone reading this review, may have about about our stance on safety and cleanliness.
First we do indeed have security on-sight at night, as well as a Manager on duty 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Between the two positions each floor of the hotel is checked every hour and this record is kept on sight.
Secondly we are a nationally registered historic building that went through a multi-milliion dollar renovation before opening in it's current re-incarnation as the HI Aladdin. As seen in some of our other reviews our hotel has kept the charm of the original structures, like our marble lobby floors, while being able to create a modern, art deco style in our rooms. Since our hotel is an original, historic building our rooms are admittedly quaint, however our team takes pride in keeping up a clean and modern environment.
And last, as with ALL hotels in the downtown KC market we do charge for Valet parking, we are happy to say that our valet cost is less than any of our competitors right now. If Valet parking does not work for a guests we also give information concerning the cost of the closest public parking garage, which is right across the street from our hotel.
We want to again thank you for the review, we take all information to heart and use it to improve our services. I would love to have the opportunity to get a better understanding of what happened with your experience. Please contact me at the number provided below. Have a good day
