Experience wasn't as good as in the past. 1. Staff not as friendly. 2. No live music as has historically been the case and currently advertised on Web site. 3. Room on 2nd floor near traffic was very loud!

Ryan, Thanks for the quick candid review of your visit to our hotel. I am sorry, sounds like we did not live up to your past levels of service at our hotel. Certainly some areas for improvement. Thanks again for taking the time to share. More

We loved this beautiful historic hotel. The entire staff from the front door and check-in to housekeeping was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable even though smaller than some-I have stayed at a newer hotel at Crown Center and the room wasn't any larger. The bed and pillows were great and nice amenities in the bath as... More

This is a historic property in the light and power district. It is a very nice area with plenty of shopping, restaurants and bars. The hotel itself has a lot of character and was recently rennovated. Rooms are small and I had the pleasure of being placed directly across from the ice machine. As a result I was woken up... More

Thanks for your time, and thanks for visiting our hotel. I am sorry it was quite loud around your room. Sometimes other guests can be quite loud in the hallways. I sure would have enjoyed the opportunity to move you to another room in quiet location. Hopefully you will visit us again, I am sure we can get you in... More

A very well kept old hotel that takes you back in time and still provides the modern conviences that one expects. We would not hesitate to stay again. Also, it is next to the Power & Light District for easy access. We had a wonderful short stay.

Recently stayed at Hilton President Kansas City for 3 nights. Architecture of building is beautiful as is the lobby but the rooms are boring and blah. Expected more of the rooms for a Hilton.

The Hilton President is located near the Power and Light District and the Convention center. The hotel just oozes with history. The lobby, elevators, halls all have a feel of yesteryear. Rooms are very modern and clean, large flat panel tv, decent signal wifi. The higher floors have great views of the city, power and light district. The Drum Room... More

We had a ball to attend, so arrived early to relax and enjoy. Went into the bar for before drinks, had an outstanding bartender. Room was big, clean and very comfortable. Only problem was next day, housekeeping was anxious to get us out before the noon checkout time, so they put a kink in our leisurely morning.

Great service at this hotel. I made a special request for non-feather pillows when I made the reservation on-line, and the front desk staff actually confirmed at check-in that the pillows had been replaced in the room. That never happens! Beautiful lobby, great location, friendly/helpful staff---would definitely stay here again.
