We checked in Thursday early afternoon. It was a bit hectic as there was a convention at Bartle Hall (Kansas City Convention Center). Everyone was very helpful and even the management was working the front desk! We were checking in at the Marriott which was originally built as the Vista International Hotel in 1985, when we were told that we would actually be staying at the Muehlebach Annex. Hmmm... The Muehlebach Annex is a building which was restored in 1998 at the SE corner of 12th and Baltimore. It is located diagonally across from the Marriott and can be accessed at street level, or from a covered walkway on the 2nd floor of the Marriott. The rooms were clean and housekeeping did an excellent job. Both the Marriott and the Muehlbach are located are conveniently located about 1 or 2 blocks from the Convention Center. Our room was quiet, on the west side (front) of the building. One could see the front of the Marriott, Bartle Hall, the Music Hall, and a couple of churches, one of which had a guilded dome. Several restaurants are located within walking distance, too. We took advantage of the valet parking. The service was excellent! The only downside we found was there were almost no vending machines.
