I think for the ballroom corner of a major convention hotel, they did a decent job. The entire convention center area is a huge dead zone, like they are in every city. Most convention hotels that have a large ballroom/meeting space are pretty hideous outside the main entrance. The Hilton hotel across from Camden Yards in Baltimore is nearly identical in size and basic layout to the KC hotel and that thing is much worse and it's right across the street from the stadium.
It would have been nice if they had put the rooms in a single 40 story tower rather than the L shaped blocky looking tower, but I guess that would have added a lot of extra cost, I'm not sure.
Sure would be cool to see this go up at the same time as Three Light. Also, KC still does not have a Hyatt a W and several others. Maybe this will get some other hotels to come to Downtown. When Nashville's first new large hotel went up, other chains started tripping over themselves to come into the market. Maybe this will get the attention of some other hotels chains?
