I've got a wacky idea - how about we go to a hotel where the rooms are well presented and the staff will do anything to make your stay better? Maybe it's not so wacky, but I've been to many a hotel where they treat you like the customer is the irritating little problem they all have to deal with.... More

Having never stayed at this hotel, it was very close to many restaurants and venues. Parking was excellent, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly and hotel itself was elegant but not over the top. I would have no problem suggesting a stay there to my friends or family. Just a very nice hotel.

Thanks for that wonderful review of your visit to our hotel. I am pleased everything was just perfect for you. One of the main attractions of our hotel is simply the location. The only hotel in the Power and Light District. Thanks again for your time and feedback. Philip More

Location is great if you are wanting to be in Power and Light district. Water pressure for shower was horrible, especially for a woman trying to wash her hair. Pillows weren't great either. Definitely not worth the price in my opinion.

Was in Kansas City for the first time for a concert at the sprint center. We wanted a no hassle place to stay within walking distance to the center, which this place was....3 blocks! For this fact it made the price of the room a little more tolerable, when you have to consider parking, driving and traffic. It was an... More

Our two night stay was shortly after the Big 12 tournament crowd left town. The hotel was fairly quiet and we were offered an upgrade to a corner room with view because the room we selected during mobile check-in wasn't yet ready. Lovely room, great view. The hotel (and room) was clean. The staff was friendly and responded quickly to... More

The historic hotel is walking distance to the Power and Light District. The room was comfortable, however, our room faced the P&L and the music was easily heard thru the night which was annoying. The breakfast buffet was good. We hadn't received a voucher for breakfast, but our server gave us one. We ate in the downstairs restaurant for dinner... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hilton President in the Power and Light District of Kansas City. We were there for the Big 12 Tournament. This is a very nice hotel and close to the Excel Center where the tournament was held. The hotel was very busy this weekend. Our room was nice, not real big but worked... More

I have stayed at this hotel 5 times now and this is the worst stay by far. For the price charged for a room you would think hot water would be available.

I would have expected a lot more from a Hilton in downtown KC/Power and Light. For the priced we paid, would have expected a very pleasant experience... not the case. Overall -- way overpriced for the quality that we received. Check in went well, valet met us in the street to get our car. Front desk had our reservation ready... More
