There are two obvious facets that make Kelly Park a charming place to live: the property, and the property manager, Hillary, and her support staff.For the property, the style is unequivocally high-end, and easily comparable to any new property in such a major city as Chicago, with the interior featuring architectural arches throughout the design, crown molding, high ceilings, and quality materials, reflecting the thoughtfulness of the new build. The clubhouse is a grand design in itself, hosting a business center, theater room, sitting room, and a fitness center in view of the saltwater pool. The location of the property is near major Kansas highways and interstates, making traveling to the airport, downtown to Crown Center, the Plaza area and nearby Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, very direct. The complex is in a very short radius to some of the best shopping in all of the metropolitan area, with national chains shops including Von Maur, Barnes and Noble, Crate and Barrel, Williams and Sonoma, and the list continues.One of the best features that this property has to offer is the ambiance that the property manager Hillary, has projected for it. Her disposition is sterling. She is unwavering in her cordial approachability, and cheerfulness, and she presents this while maintaining a diligent dutifulness in overseeing all aspects of an impeccably well-run site, and all done with an approach that is not invasive. Her office staff, Allison and Kasey, along with the maintenance team, mirror this quality demeanor, making it a truly pleasant environment, amidst a truly lovely setting.
Used HD for resort trips in the past and loved them. HD helped w/ booking a 9 day trip to Paris. We hit up all her recommendations. Not kidding, you must hit up every spot she recommends. The packet she sends out was worth its weight in gold. Found an entrance at the Louvre w/ no one in line. We arrived around 10:30am at the main entrance and the line was worse than Disney lines. It appeared to move some, but we remembered that the HD packet had a secret entrance. No one was in line. I repeat, no one was in line. We felt like VIP. She put us up in beautiful local arrondissement, away from touristy spots, but close enough in case you want the touristy activities. I scanned the packet and brought it up on my phone. Get a data plan for sure. Hop on wifi when you can. The HD packet explains in full detail how to navigate the train system, taxis, tipping etiquette and even the spots to be on alert. Her recommendations for bars and snacks were on point. My favorite part of Paris is its culture and food. The landmarks are cool, but for me, it's about the people, food and the many bottles of wine/beer. Get a data plan, a map, a wine opener, whatever HD recommends and most importantly, get lost. Go somewhere. There's a whole other world out there. Bon voyage. Bien manger (eat well). Au revoir.
I do not even know where to start with this review. I couldn't have made it through my wedding without Haley, at least not with my sanity. She helped me every step of the way with my wedding planning process. We ended up with 73 people booking trips through Haley for our destination wedding in the Dominican Republic. She was always there for everyone to answer questions and concerns. She made it very easy for all us travelers and me as the bride. I wanted somewhere that we were not going to price out our friends and family, yet somewhere still super nice and she hit it right on the money by recommending a Dreams resort. I put all my trust in her with this process and she never let me down once. I’m not really sure what the responsibilities of a “destination wedding planner” are, but I know she exceeded them. Unfortunately, when it came time for all of us to travel, the snow storm Pax freakishly hit the south and most of my party’s flights were cancelled to get there. She put all of her work aside for days to help get most of our friends and family down there and I will forever be grateful. I highly recommend Haley to anyone for travel plans and especially brides wanting to do a destination wedding. I could go on and on. HALEY IS AWESOME!!!!
I took a recent trip to Mexico for a destination wedding that Haley was making all of the travel arrangements for, and she was absolutely on top of every little detail. From booking my flight to making the reservations at the resort, to arranging shuttle transportation and even giving us useful tips for an easy experience at the airport, I was completely confident in traveling that far by myself because I knew that she had everything covered. She kept everyone in the loop and up to date on payment deadlines and general trip information, and she even sent us a very useful packet right before the trip with all the information we needed, a bright colored velcro handle cover for luggage (which proved very handy when trying to find my suitcase at baggage claim) and a really handy travel "wallet" that made carrying my passport, boarding passses, etc. really easy. And what I found interesting about working with Haley is that I don't even live in the same city as her company, and that made no difference at all. She was always accessible and helpful. I would absolutely recommend Haley and Destinations HD for anyone going on a trip.
I stumbled across Haley and Destinations HD via posts on multiple wedding boards. When I started looking into her more, I found so many amazing reviews. Now I get to be one of those amazing reviews!! This was the first time I have ever used a travel agent. I am generally the “do it yourself”, “find the cheapest way” type of person, so I was really stepping out of my comfort zone. I was immediately put to ease the very first time I talked with her! Haley is so sweet, and you can tell that she loves what she does! She is a people pleaser in every sense of the word! She took care of every little detail of our trip! There were many times I would think of a question, shoot her an email in the evening, and 9 times out of 10, I had an answer or response that night! She gave our honeymoon so much attention, all we had to do was show up! I can’t say enough great things about Haley and Destinations HD! I feel like this review is exclamation point overload, but that just goes to show how happy we’ve been with her services! Haley is simply amazing! Thank you for making our honeymoon so easy, and absolutely unforgettable!
We loved working with Haley, from Destinations HD, to plan our honeymoon to Aruba. Haley was very professional and provided us with three (very detailed) options on honeymoon destinations after we met with her and voiced our preferences/wants for our honeymoon. After reading through each itinerary and researching each country, we decided on Aruba, a place we had never even considered until Haley had included it as one of our options. The planning portion of our honeymoon was super easy as Haley did the majority of it. She had extensive knowledge about the island and recommended different restaurants, excursions and a dine-around plan. Right before our wedding and honeymoon, we received a "honeymoon packet" with travel documents, information that was extremely helpful for us as we were concentrating on the final details of the wedding. It allowed us to focus on last minute wedding details instead of stressing out about getting everything together. Overall, our honeymoon was absolutely amazing. We loved the resort, staff and island and will be a trip that we will remember for the rest of our lives!
Haley was soooo good to us. My wife and I took a trip to get away from work and the kids and have "us" time, and it was the perfect vacation. The only preface she got from us when helping us plan our vacation was "all inclusive", "beach", and "no kids". She showed us a variety of options, had personal experience and caveat's for each one, and helped us land on Secrets Silversands in Riviera Maya. The resort was great, and we ended up upgrading rooms when we got there to a "swim up room" per her suggestion, which saved us money and came with lots of spa credits. But the best part of working with Haley was the non-stop chartered flight she got us on. We met other couples at the resort that were jealous of our travel agent when they found out we didn't have to spend 2 full days traveling on this vacation; rather a quick 2.5hr direct flight which gave us extra time on the resort on our travel days. One couple even asked us to send them the name of our travel agent for their next trip.100% recommend Haley and Destinations HD for anyone looking to travel!
Haley is truly one of the BEST travel consultants we have ever worked with. Her knowledge of the property/destination and level of customer service has set the bar so high, I'm not sure we could travel again without her. We have been guests of several destination weddings/events and having recently returned from our friends' wedding she coordinated in the Dominican Republic, it was the most well-organized and best experience we could've asked for. all this said despite having had to deal with flight cancellations at the beginning of our trip which almost led to no trip at all! Haley kept her cool and still managed to get 80+ people to the wedding AND ensure the resort would accommodate extended stays due to travel interruptions. I cannot express adequately how much I appreciated her constant contact, prompt responses, care packages prior to leaving the country, and follow up!!Whether you are planning a large group trip or something more intimate, I feel confident endorsing Haley and her company for a trip that you will not regret!Happy travels!!!
