4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We enjoyed one night at this historic hotel. Our room was comfortable and well appointed. We left our window open and did not have any problems with noise. Our breakfast was included with our room and the food was great. We spent quite a lot of time walking around this area.

We just returned from the wedding of our son in KC. Most of the wedding guests who stayed for the weekend stayed at this beautiful hotel where the wedding reception was held here as well. The hotel itself is historic and beautiful. The very best part for all of us, however, was the staff.......Hideo oversaw the tasting a couple of... More

Although this hotel has lovely historical lobby, the room decor is lacking and shabby. The staff in the breakfast room are never there and the "Drum Room" bar had the most rude bar tender I have EVER come across in my travels. Dont wast your money here. It is high dollar for a Motel 6 experience.

Two nights with no sleep with out of control girls from out of town tearing up the hallways slamming doors, screeching and screaming, and pounding on walls. At one point the girls in the room next to us tried to break through the connecting door. Had to call front desk several times. Stay at a hotel near the airport where... More

This historic Hilton hotel screams of yesteryear. From the period music on the lobby to the feel of the Drum Room bar you should be able to envision yourself engulfed in a classic time in history. The bell staff and front desk personnel are very accommodating and friendly. The breakfast buffet still needs some work on both presentation and thoroughness... More

This was my second stay at The Hilton President and obviously they are trying to run the hotel with as little staff as possible since my previous stay. The concierge was outstanding, however he was responsible for basically running the entire hotel. We experienced long waits at the bar, coffee shop and valet on both days of our stay. Housekeeping...

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about your visit. Clearly there were some issues with the breakfast service. The restaurant seats about 70 people, so any time 50 people show without reservations, wtih a sold out hotel will be a recepie for potential issues.

We stopped here for one night on our trip across the country and found the hotel and accommodations to be exceptional. We arrived very late--around 11pm--but the valet and check-in were very friendly. Colby at the front desk was especially helpful. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the bathroom was outfitted with top-shelf bath products. We used the small gym... More
