I don’t really write about the places that we stay much (if at all) when we travel because most of the times everything is pretty basic but, this past weekend in Overland Park, we were so happy with the hotel that we stayed at that it bears a mention. First, let’s talk about the location. The hotel was literally five minutes from Elite Tennis and Wellness (the tournament venue) and had a Raising Cane’s in the same parking lot that we could walk to (huge plus). Additionally, there were several great places to eat in the vicinity including Tanner’s and Hawaiian Bros. I would totally stay here again if I’m ever to play in another tournament in Overland Park area just for the location alone.

Second, let’s talk about the room because it was HUGE! We had a little bar area of the entry with the fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, etc. And then right off that, we had a pullout couch (in case someone needs to crash with you, I guess). We also had a nice desk that divided the couch area from the bed. The bathroom was also quite spacious. Although, I was not a fan of the door to the toilet room because that made the toilet area a little tight but I did appreciate that you could shut that door and go to the bathroom while someone was brushing their teeth or getting ready at the bathroom counter.

You could leave the toilet room door open (which is what we did most of the time) except then you’re staring at yourself going to the bathroom because you’re facing the closet with mirrored doors. LOL.

I did not get a picture of the bathroom so you’ll just have to trust me on the configuration. Everything in the room was laid out perfectly, otherwise.

My other favorite thing about this hotel is they were super pet-friendly. They even give you these hang tags for your door to designate that you have a pet inside. I enjoyed Saki being with us all weekend, even though it meant fighting for real estate on the bed.

Saki absolutely loved the bed. In fact, whenever we came back from being out, she wouldn’t even hop off the bed to greet us.

Outside, the hotel has multiple green spaces designed specifically for you to able to take your dog out to do their business. Each area had a waste station with poop bags and a receptacle so we didn’t even have to bring our scooper and bags down whenever we had to take Saki out. They really thought of everything to make it easy for those traveling with their fur babies.

Lastly, the free hot breakfast each morning was a very nice perk. Additionally, you could get fresh fruit, oatmeal, cereal, and waffles as well.

The waffle bar was great because you always had two options. Plain waffles are available everyday but each day there was a different secondary waffle batter. The first morning it was blueberry. Then it was chocolate the next, and apple cinnamon on our final morning there. They also had all sorts of fixin’s you could put on your waffles. It was great!

If you wanted hot food, there were plenty of options. The eggs were just okay but the potatoes were great and I was grateful for the sausage links. You could also make a bowl of biscuits and gravy if you desired.

This is the plate I made for myself one morning:

This last photo is of the juice dispenser because I was so happy for the flavored water. I drank multiple glasses of the grape raspberry infused water everyday.

Anyway, I really liked this hotel and it has now made our short list of favorite places to stay specially when we are traveling with Saki. Can’t wait until the next tournament so I can stay here again. Until then, GNG.
