A wonderful place to stay, staff is remarkable! Lots of things to do around the hotel. The Drumm Room was fun and the servers were great. This hotel comes highly recommended and they did not disappoint.

Spent the weekend in Kansas City attending a Sox vs. Royals game at Kauffman Stadium. Selected the Hilton President because of its downtown location near the Power & Light District, and glad we did. The room was extremely large, spacious and in great condition. The hotel has obviously been well maintained with nice carpet and nicely painted walls. Service was... More

You don't need to wear red shoes to stay at this lovely old hotel which surely is a national treasure. Located in the light district with good pubs and restaurants all near by,, stop at the drum for a drink before or after dinner,, or,, both. Restaurant serves good food at a reasonable price. Rooms are spacious enough for a... More

This is a very nice historical boutique Hilton property. Very modern, clean and well appointed rooms with great views of downtown Kansas City. This hotel is in the Power and Light District, so very convenient to many restaurants and bars in the district. Very efficient valet parking and check in/check out process. We had meetings in the ballrooms on second... More

Pros: bed is very comfortable, room is spacious/clean, bathroom is pretty nice, oversized bath towels Cons: after being in the room for 20 min, the house keeper opens the door- without knocking!- sees I'm half naked with my husband, and just smiles and puts the "do not disturb" sign on the back of the handle. W. T. F. Water pressure... More

Not staffed enough for special events going on at hotel. Hotel has a lot of history and very well maintained. Good overall location. Place needs to update security. Nice place to stay. And why do I have to make sure there are over 200 characters on here before i submit.

From the moment you enter the door of this treasure you are transported to an earlier era. Mid century radio clips play in the background of the common area. The walnut room is a fabulous place to enjoy a laid back breakfast. A cocktail in the drum room before adventuring out into the lively power and light district sets the... More

Fire Alarm 2nd night of stay at 3AM was FALSE ALARM. Destroyed our sleep for the night. NEED I SAY MORE? This should not happen at a hotel of this caliber!!! Other than that, the hotel is located in a fantastic area of the city with easy access to many restaurants and bars and other points of interest.

This hotel is centrally located in the Power and Light district near many restaurants and shops. The hotel has a Starbucks in the lobby, but every time I went down, no one was attending, so I had to walk a few blocks to a fully functioning Starbucks for bfast. There is a restaurant on-site, if you need somewhere close for... More
