I love that we were able to get tickets for as low as $15. We "upgraded" to the $25 seats and while they were on the far right side, we were still able to see everything quite well.

No, you would not want to stay in this area. Gocloset to the Plaza or South Kansas City, Overland Park, Ks would also be a good choice with lots of hotels to choose from.
