7/5/14, room and entire lobby etc seemed not to be cooling. Doors opened, not much change. Corners of hallways are quite dusty. Room furnishings could use an upgrade. Will pick another spot next time.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about your visit to our hotel. I am terribly sorry we could not get the air temps cool enough around the hotel. Last week was indeed an abnormally hot week in Kansas City, and we obviously did not pay enough attention to the air temps in the building. Point taken about... More

I had a hard time to find the hotel but that is just me. It is an older hotel that has gone thru a major renovation. The room was quite large and very clean and nicely done. The hotel is nice not being your modern cube with no character

The hotel was nice and the staff were friendly and helpful. My complaints stem from the 18% room tax and the $18 per night for parking. I like the fitness room, the elevators were prompt, and the hotel bar was very nice.

Vicki Thanks for your time and your valuable feedback. The taxes are out of our control as you pointed out, but I certainly agree they are a bit high. Point taken about the parking charge as well. I am pleased that your stay overall went well, and we would love to see you back in the future! Philip More

We just stayed for one night. Our room was clean, bathroom was clean, pool area clean and were towels available. The people at the desk was very pleasant! Breakfast was normal. We ate it and didn't get sick. :)

Great location in KC Power and Light District. Walk to most attractions. Many restaurants in area. Breakfast at hotel not the greatest value. Overall experience was good. Excellent service by hotel staff. Rooms clean and nicely appointed.

We enjoy staying at the Hilton President on a somewhat regular basis. The staff is very friendly and professional. They have often times bumped up our accomodations to a higher level if the hotel was not full. The hotel is beautiful, and the rooms are well appointed. The bar staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the valets are prompt. The... More

The President is a lovely grand old hotel. Even though it is quite old, it has been updated with fresh rooms and large modern bathrooms. It is adjacent to the fun nightlife of the Power and Light district, so it is easy to walk to bars, restaurants and other entertainment. The staff is helpful and friendly. The only problem is...

Especially enjoyable for those who appreciate older architecture. Beautiful, large updated bathroom, very comfortable bedding. Excellent location for Kansas City Power & Light District and the many activities it has to offer. Four blocks from Sprint Center.

I paid for parking $18 per night. Yet they seem to have oversold the parking. I had to wait in parking lot for open space. I complained to front desk and was told it was due to a wedding and their guests using the garage. Well, I question how parking can be sold, without a spot being guaranteed. I wasted... More
