The President is a grand old Hotel. I adore the environment, the people, the food and spirits; this is a wonderful place to stay. During this visit I read more on the Drum Room and learned that the hotel was the first in the region that made ice on its premises. When I ordered an Old Fashion in the Drum... More

Lovely hotel and actually fits the "boutique" mold as advertised. We had 2 queen beds which appeared to be more like doubles. The rooms were nice and beds were comfy. The only thing I have to report that was not up to par and what I expect from staying at a Hilton property was our arrival and departure. We pulled... More

Thanks for your candid feedback about your visit to our hotel. I am terribly sorry we did not live up to expectations in a couple of areas. As you see by the majority of the reviews this is not how we conduct business at the President. You have given us some good feedback in order for us to make some... More

A great experience & wonderful time. Great & professional personnel. Front desk and bell service personnel were too notch. Excellent dining with great food. the only negative - front door parking / drop off area is too small. A maximum of 4 small vehicles could be accommodated. Dan did recommend their rear entrance for larger vehicles. That's it for now.

Gary, Thanks for your kind feedback about your visit. Point taken about the loading zone in front of the hotel. We too would like more space for guests to pull up and drop off. This is certainly something we can look into with the help of the city. I am pleased everything else was perfect for your visit. Regards, Philip More

Our third time here; love the ambiance of the restoration and the location block from the power and light district. Hang out in the Drum Room where Sinatra played. Staff great. Breakfast fantastic. What more could you ask!! The rooms are nicely appointed and the bathrooms and especially the shower was wonderful

I stayed with a friend to attend a wedding. The bride's mother had recommended this hotel, and we were very pleased with the historic charm of the facility, the friendliness and helpfulness of literally every staff member we encountered, and the convenience of the location. The whole experience reflected well on Hilton as well as Kansas City. There are numerous... More

For the crazy amount I spent on this hotel I have mixed feelings. The location is great for the Power and Light District-no need to drive anywhere once you have to pay for parking ($18/day to self park or $20/day for valet). Many restaurants around, except breakfast restaurants. This is concerning when the hotel does not provide any sort of... More

Chelsea, Thanks for the candid feedback about your visit to our hotel. I am sorry there was some noise at the site across the street. Most of that work has ended. You have noted some points that our management team can certainly discuss in order to improve our products and services. Again, thank you for your time and candid feedback.... More

Historic hotel in a great location . Hilton made us feel welcome. The only issue was that the elevator was out of service in the parking garage. Valet parking was available for a fee. We were there on the weekend, where there was a lot of activity, and the parking to check in was full, so we had to wait.

With a great location in the power and light district, this historic hotel does not lack in beauty. The rooms have been renovated nicely and the beds are very comfortable. Room service for breakfast is a better option then the buffet, food taste better. After six consecutive nights, I met most of the hotel staff and they were great. I... More

In its renovation this hotel holds old elegance and style, while having all the modern conveniences. The elevators are small as are the rooms but everything is clean and fresh. The amenities are limited without a pool. The restaurant is quiet with a different then the normal Hilton menu. Its a "old fashioned- elegance" motif with the staff attentive and... More

Thanks for that wonderful review of your visit. I understand your frustrations with the construction across the street. The noisy parts of that work should be over for a while now. It sounds as if the rest of your visit was just perfect. Thanks again for your time and candid feedback. Philip More

Whenever possible, I choose historic properties over indistinguishable corporate options. Even with the group rate at my meeting hotel (another property), the Hilton President beat the rate and provided a gorgeous atmosphere that felt much more intimate than the giant around the corner. Lovely rooms, very comfortable, with excellent staff and an extra touch of customer service. Will definitely stay... More
