I recieved an EMAIL, not a call, to inform me my reservation had been canceled as they overlooked a room block for a convention. They were kind enough to relocate me, but the relocation was in a completely different part of Kansas City and me and my crew were no longer able to walk Power and Light. I called the... More

Hotel had a great historical appeal. Staff was friendly and attentive. They provided me with a one day pass to the local gym OneLife that was brand new and had state of the art equipment. Also was just a few blocks form the convention center.Would totally recommend staying here.

I travel to KC for work a lot. I've stayed at pretty much all of the hotels near power and light and the president is by far the best I've experienced yet. The room was great. The bed was comfy the sheets soft and the bathroom was much better than the others in the neighborhood hotels.

I booked a stay from an online offer. Originally, I booked a stay for 4 rooms. Then we decided to change it and just do 2 rooms. The reservations were made for the airport location. After speaking with our family that we were to visit, we decided to move our reservations to the downtown location. I called and cancelled and... More

What a place to stay. The hotel was something out of the past with its grandeur and spacious rooms. I was impressed with this hotel and would definitely stay there again. The large entrance area had a baby grand piano with lots of seating and a fun bar connected to the hotel.

We stayed at the Hilton President for a wedding we attended. Overall the hotel was wonderful, great location and very accommodating staff. The one downside was the amount of noise we could hear from the rooms next door and hallways throughout the night.

With a fabulous 1927 lobby and a location across the street from Kansas City's famous art deco treasure The Power and Light Building, the Hilton President will take you back in time. The staff was very courteous and friendly and I would stay here again.

Our venue was just a block and a half away making this a very convenient location for the wedding attendees to stay. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. The lobby is a terrific location for meeting and gathering. Great location to walk and shop. Double beds seemed small in this day and age of queens. Mattresses a bit too soft.

Even though overall the hotel is conveniently located, their parking is not. The parking garage is in another building and unless you utilize a $20 valet, you are hauling your luggage from the adjacent building, up the hill and around the corner.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about your visit. I am terribly sorry you had some parking issues during your visit. Parking can be a challenge downtown sometimes. We are however in the process of building a new parking garage across the street from the hotel. We hope that this new garage will help mitigate some of... More

I can't review the experience of staying at this hotel because my reservation for July 30 - August 1 made in February was cancelled by the hotel, with the only notice to me being an email from another hotel confirming a reservation I hadn't made. That email came to my email address but said "Hello" to someone else; I thought... More
