    Nice, Clean & Quiet - yet close to everything.
    very nice, clean and quiet hotel in walking distance to the plaza shops. there are also bird scooters everywhere which are super fun and cheap! The Parker had great breakfast / lunch as well.

    Luxury but affordable luxury
    This is a top notch place to stay just off The Plaza area of KC. Might be nice to have a few more services right on the adjacent block, but the short walk to the Plaza shops is well worth it. Front desk and pool / bar service at this place is great and you will enjoy this hotel immensely.

    Poor 2.0
    Epic 4-Star Fail
    From the moment we checked in (or tried to because they had given my reservation to my brother) we had a roller coaster of bad, fair and nice experiences. The nice was that two staff members tried desperately to make up the bad ones to us but it was too little too late. A hotel of this caliber should have the basics down. The Fontaine was like a roadway inn with no manager. Dirty rooms, surly bar and pool staff, needing to ask for supplies, clean glasses, etc. and just a poor experience at virtually every turn. Natasha and the woman at the front desk who took it upon herself to clean our room from top to bottom in her business clothes and pearls were the bright spots but they were doing damage control. Fontaine, get your S*&% together! Take a lesson from any 2-Star hotel in the area to bring your game up to adequate!

    Stylish hotel in a lovely neighborhood!
    We thought the staff was lovely. The Tesla SUV as a hotel shuttle was great and the drivers were all wonderful. The location was good for walking to restaurants for dinner. The breakfast entrees are very large (too large for me...) I would definitely stay here again.
