We live in the area and use the President when we're staying in town. The President is in the heart of the Power and Light District (an entertainment district) in downtown Kansas City, MO. Built in the 1920's it exhibits the charm and elegance that were typical of the times. The lobby is grand and open. We've had several different... More

Nicely restored historic grand old hotel in downtown Kansas City. Lovely public spaces, nice little bar and large rooms. Erica at the front desk was quite helpful, as were the drivers of the van service who will take you and pick you within a two-mile radius. Made our trip quite convenient without a car.

From check in to check out, a great experience. The location of this hotel to downtown and the sports arena makes it a easy choice. The room was a great size, nice bathroom and very fast wifi. Have a drink the famous Drum Room if you have a chance

Recently we stayed the night at the President because we have stayed here before and had a nice room. As a treat, my husband upgraded us to a suite on the top floor. I think, in keeping with the President theme used throughout the hotel, this suite would be best titled the Impeached President suite due to the dark character... More

Hotel employees exceeded expectations. The room are clean and roomy. The location of this hotel to the Power and light district is as good as it gets. I would recommend this hotel highly. There are many to chose from in this area. This is the best by far.

Hotel rooms are on the small side, but that is likely because this is an older property. I saw a ton of people cleaning while I was there and staff got me checked in early. The hotel bar has very good food and drinks. Close enough to walk to everything in the Power and Light District. I would come back.

Cheryl Thanks for the review of your visit to our hotel. As the only hotel actually located within the Power and Light District, so many entertainment options are right outside our front door. I am pleased you found the hotel to be just perfect for your visit. Please look us up again should your travel plans bring you to Kansas... More

Kansas City offers a variety of quality hotels. You can find great stays regardless of the area you are interested in staying. We enjoyed our stay at the downtown Hilton President Hotel. The President, built in 1926, is located at 13th and Baltimore streets. It’s adjacent to the Power and Light District. The P&L is a retail, entertainment and restaurant... More
