Beautiful historic hotel in the heart of Power and Light... However the elevators are extremely slow, the valet is slow and backed up, the AC in the room does not work. When we checked in at 3:30 it was set at 65 and had to be 80 in the room so we shut the shades since it was a hot... More

I am terribly sorry there were some issues during your visit to our hotel. I am sure you were terribly uncomfortable with the room air conditioning. I will be reaching out to you via traditional channels to see if we can make this right for you! More

We spent 2 nights midweek in July. This hotel is an older model but has had upgrades. Our stay was very nice and it suited our needs perfectly. Room was comfy and beds were exquisite. We did need to keep the thermostat as low as it would go to keep the room comfortable. Wifi service worked great for us and... More

Have stayed at many Hiltons..this was one of the best all around..loved the boutique feel...staff was excellent and the place was quiet and historic..if you like loud and busy, this isn't the hotel for you, but I was at a Conference with thousands and it was a great escape!

This is an old classy hotel right next to the Power and Light District. Two small blocks away. Right in about the middle of downtown with access to the freeways. Another reviewer mentioned its not the quiet part of town, this is only true on some nights, but I never really heard anything and the P&L district has been very... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about your visit. Point taken on the ice cream cost. If we see you again the ice cream is on us. I will visit with our Chief Engineer to see if there is anything we can do about the heat in the elevator shafts. It certainly has been hot, and I... More

We stayed at the Hilton President KC for several days around a family member wedding. Three rooms. Not cheap, but we wanted to splurge a little for the special occasion and thought the hotel looked very special based on what we could see over the internet. Room 1324 plus two others. Within our first two hours of arriving, we had... More

This hotel was really nice. We love the charming lobby, friendly service, and comfortably outfitted rooms. The bathroom was clean and modern, though the water pressure on the shower was rather weak. Location is good, we had planned on bumming around the P&L so it's great for that. Be aware that it is NOT a quiet part of town, and... More

Timothy- Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. So sorry we could not get the air to a comfortable level for you. The building normally has no issue keeping up with the outside air temps and humidity. I will reach out to you via private message so we can take a look at the room you occupied. Thanks... More

The desk staff is helpful and rooms are comfortable. However, do not eat breakfast in the restaurant unless you expect to wait on yourself and eat sub-par food. Also, the water pressure and temperature of the showers is awful. Prepare to be scalded or chilled each morning. It will vary by morning. Stay on a lower floor if you want... More

This was our second stay at The Hilton President KC. We are locals but find that it's nice to just get away from everything for an evening occasionally. Booking was easy. We asked for a corner room facing the P&L district and did get it. Room 402. Check in was easy and went smoothly. We had 2 complaints of the... More

I took my family for a wedding party in the downtown Kansas City. The room was reserved based on the wedding discount offer around $150 including the tax. The dinner and wedding ceremony were held on the different floors but were spacious to accommodate the needs. The room was clean and wonderful. Strongly recommend this hotel for you.

This is a great place to stay. Built in 1926, everything seems scaled to the times. I'm usually picky about using "historic" hotels, but the President was just fine in terms of comfort and room amenities. Shortcomings--we were there over 4th of July weekend, and the Starbucks was on short hours. Want a can of pop? No vending, gotta go... More
