My wife and I stayed here on Sunday, August 4, as we were attending a concert at the Sprint Center down the street. We've stayed at the President several times in the past, and frankly, the experience is up and down every time. This trip, the girl at the front desk was on the surly side at check-in, something I...

I am, as I am writing this, in this hotel. I have been awake almost all night because of loud music. Our room is a corner room with windows on Baltimore and 14th streets, and even though the windows are closed, we heard loud music until 2 AM coming from outside the hotel. Then at 6 AM, it started again.... More

I am very sorry about the noise coming from the Komen Walk to cure breast cancer. Every year thousands assemble in the area and walk for a cure, it's a wonderful event, and we can only hope that this event raises continued awareness and money, moving towards a cure. We do our best to inform all guests that there will... More

This is an Historic hotel and as I was checking it, I was a bit leery. But the rooms were well appointed with modern well outfitted bathrooms. They must have had a major renovation as it was surprisingly nice. We had a meeting in the Aztec room and it was clearly antique, but it was fine with a/v, etc. Breakfast... More

Thanks so much for the wonderful review! One of the most important items about ANY hotel are the beds. I am pleased you found the rooms and the beds so comfortable. The hotel was originally opened in 1927, and underwent a massive renovation a few years back. We certainly hope to see you again in the future! More

We stay here on Hilton Points. It's a great hotel, but were woken at 3:00am by a group of loud inebrated young adults who were there for a wedding & reception. This noise went for about 15 minutes. We called hotel staff, and they just responsed with "we know already." Also, we had made the reservations for four adults but... More

David Thanks for your review. It sounds like you had a great stay, but we could have done a better job controlling some noise issues. We will take a look at the response that night and see what we could have done differently/better. Sometimes a few of our guests can get a little loud, and we certainly should be able... More

We were happy with our stay here. It was a nice, older hotel and have nothing great or negative to say- overall it was a good stay. We had the sense that it was under staffed, but the workers seemed to work hard. The breakfast seemed above average for a Hilton with many choices. The location was perfect walking distance... More

With an excellent location in the heart of Downtown Kansas City MO, the Hilton President pays homage to historic Kansas City flourishing in mid-century and earlier. From your first steps into the well-appointed lobby, you'll be impressed by the architectural details of the stately columns, velvet furnishings and hospitable staff. Guest rooms are spacious, with respectable sized bathrooms. The Walnut... More

The staff was typical for Hilton-friendly and courteous. Rooms were smaller than normal, but this is a landmark hotel and building and the remodel work was very well done. Loved the lobby, miss that flair and ambiance in the newer suburban hotels. In the Power and Light District, three easy blocks to the Sprint Center. Parking accomodations very good, just... More

The hotel is very convenient to entertainment district and has beautiful lobby. It is nice to have a Starbucks and bar. The only food we ate was the breakfast bar and it was horrible. The scrambled eggs were clearly powdered eggs and were runny - the gravy and biscuits were unedible. Comfortable bed/pillows, nice tv, and decor. If you have... More

This is a nice, older hotel in the downtown district of Kansas City. I probably would not have picked this hotel nor this location unless it was where I had to be to attend a board meeting.
