There is a Marriott (not Courtyard) on same street (Metcalf) and another Courtyard nearby (also Overland Park). Pay attention when booking to make sure you are getting the right location. I had business south of College Blvd so this location was ideal within walking distance.
I usually stay at the flagship Marriotts and, although a step down, this Courtyard is perfectly serviceable. The rooms were clean, available desk and power, working wifi and now hbo go. The staff is friendly and helpful and the Bistro concept is growing on me. The Bistro has full Starbucks services and products. It's probably more convenient to grab oatmeal and a coffee to go than the business lounges (which now require platinum). Great service over multiple stays by Ben.
The nearby Overland Park Grill (down the road and through a parking lot) is within walking distance and a good choice for larger dinners. Beware of a large, ill-tempered and territorial goose that lives in the area.
I stayed here three nights, while in town on business. This is a traditional Courtyard property, which I really like because it actually has a courtyard with plenty of walk-out and balcony rooms.
I had a first floor courtyard room, which had a couple of chairs and a small table on the patio. The rooms was clean and well maintained. The décor is the latest courtyard brand style (see pics). As a Platinum Status holder, with the Marriott Brand, I would not hesitate to stay here again.
