KC Hotel is a little hidden gem. It's small, quiet and has everything one needs while staying in the city. Front desk staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. Restaurant serves great food. My only complaint is housekeeping. The process is very slow, they wouldn't get to my room till late afternoon even when there weren't many guests. Would be nice if they attended to my room while I was at breakfast as I stayed multiple nights.
