Images of Kansas City and a Hotel Update

I didn’t go to Kansas City to make a post out of it but here are some pho­tos that DaW­ife took on the trip

Union Sta­tion Kansas City

The Model Train Exhibit

Some shots from the Bridge over the Train­yard

The National World War 1 Memo­r­ial

And finally Kauff­man Sta­dium, home of the Kansas City Royals

and a quick video clip of same.

Alas the pic­tures from Pizza West in Shawnee Kansas which in addi­tion to an excel­lent Pizza Buf­fet and a good red sauce has a fine selec­tion of pin­ball machines, nor the Up Down Bar Arcade with a great selec­tion of machines all at a quar­ter a play, nor the Crown Point tav­ern which com­bines excel­lent burg­ers with a down­stairs full of pin­ball machines all that is on my son’s phone but I’ll close with this.

When we got to our hotel in KC the AC wasn’t work­ing, and the 2nd night there it was pretty bad for DaW­ife who has breath­ing issues. I tweeted this out and heard both from Price­line where I booked the room through and the par­ent com­pany of Four Points. The next day when we came back from the Red Sox KC after­noon game the Gen­eral man­ager and the main­te­nance guy were both wait­ing for us, it appears that the storm that swept through the area just before we arrived and caused power out­ages through­out the area has shot the ther­mo­stat on the unit. They were able to repair it while we were at the game, and the AC was crank­ing, nev­er­the­less they offered us a dif­fer­ent room if we wanted it (that wasn’t pos­si­ble the night before as the place was full of Red Sox fans as were the sur­round­ing hotels in the chain). We elected to say where we were and had a good two nights and when we left on Fri­day the gen­eral man­ager was there to see us off and make sure things were OK.

The mea­sure of a com­pany is not if there are no prob­lems, there are always prob­lems in life, the mea­sure is how you deal with prob­lems when they come up.

I didn’t go to Kansas City to make a post out of it but here are some photos that DaWife took on the trip

Union Station Kansas City

The Model Train Exhibit

Some shots from the Bridge over the Trainyard

The National World War 1 Memorial

And finally Kauffman Stadium, home of the Kansas City Royals

and a quick video clip of same.

Alas the pictures from Pizza West in Shawnee Kansas which in addition to an excellent Pizza Buffet and a good red sauce has a fine selection of pinball machines, nor the Up Down Bar Arcade with a great selection of machines all at a quarter a play, nor the Crown Point tavern which combines excellent burgers with a downstairs full of pinball machines all that is on my son’s phone but I’ll close with this.

When we got to our hotel in KC the AC wasn’t working, and the 2nd night there it was pretty bad for DaWife who has breathing issues. I tweeted this out and heard both from Priceline where I booked the room through and the parent company of Four Points. The next day when we came back from the Red Sox KC afternoon game the General manager and the maintenance guy were both waiting for us, it appears that the storm that swept through the area just before we arrived and caused power outages throughout the area has shot the thermostat on the unit. They were able to repair it while we were at the game, and the AC was cranking, nevertheless they offered us a different room if we wanted it (that wasn’t possible the night before as the place was full of Red Sox fans as were the surrounding hotels in the chain). We elected to say where we were and had a good two nights and when we left on Friday the general manager was there to see us off and make sure things were OK.

The measure of a company is not if there are no problems, there are always problems in life, the measure is how you deal with problems when they come up.
