I really got run through the ringer on this bidding process. I bid for KCMO many times a year and have noticed a lot of trends. However, none of those trends held true this time. Something must be going on in town because I bid a fair amount more than usual for 3 and 4 star properties and even was willing to stay on the Kansas side well outside the city. I dipped down to a 2 star property which I rarely do since with the star inflation that you often get from Priceline, you may just end up in some flop house. Well, lo and behold, I actually did really well for myself. It looks as though all the rooms at this Homestead have been remodeled recently and the reviews on Trip Advisor are very favorable (especially as of late) Location, location, location is what I will say about this property. The plaza or power and light are THE places to be in KCMO for the most part. I have done better in my KC bidding in the past, but overall I am pleased.
