This is a renovated older building. Nothing wrong with the rooms, they are decent sized and clean. Service is fine. My only complaint is the price relative to what you are getting. When I stayed here, the rates were about $200 per night mid-week. That is way too much for this place. Yes, it is in downtown Kansas City, but... More

Thanks for taking the time to write the review. Sorry you felt the value was not there. We try to offer competitive rates however we also feel the value of a Four Diamond hotel located in such a wonderful area offers a great deal of value, but your point is certainly taken under advisement. I did note a comment about... More

We booked the "Take me to the Top Package" and it was so worth it. We had a corner room on the 11th floor with 3 huge windows overlooking the beautiful city lights! The room was very spacious and the hotel overall was wonderful. Will be staying here again soon and will definitely recommend to family and friends!

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel! It is beautifully appointed and the staff members that we encountered were definitely interested in providing outstanding customer service, particularly Tahir in Valet and Amir in the restaurant. Will definitely stay here again when I return to KC. GREAT location in the Power and Light District as well. This hotel is absolutely surrounded... More

The Hilton President was a great hotel with an excellent staff. My wife and I were extremely pleased to stay there. We'll be back. When we got there we realized there were feather pillows and comforter in the room, which we are allergic to. The hotel staff quickly removed the down materials.

Thanks for the great "5-dot" review of your visit to our hotel. I am pleased we reacted quickly to your allergy. May I suggest in the future you ask for one of our "PURE" rooms. They are completely engineered for those who suffer from allergies. Again, thanks so much and we look forward to seeing you in the future! More

Room was very quiet and peaceful. My dinner from room service was rather bland - not much flavor to the salad or pasta special. The hotel is old, but has aged relatively well, although the bathroom in my room could have used some updating. Finally, the breakfast selection was very good - better than the typical fare at other Hilton... More

Never having been to Kansas City we wanted a hotel near an area of restaurants and entertainment. This hotel fit the bill being adjacent to the Power & Light district. While the 8 block entertainment district is relatively new, the building housing the Hilton President was not. Built in 1926, the hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places... More

Nice hotel near the power and lights district. Pay a bit more for a corner room with a view of P&L it is well worth it! Rooms are a bit small, but expected for a historic property. Great service all around. Parking is an additional fee. It is only $2.00 more for valet, and it will save you a walk... More

Arrived in a May blizzard and record low temps (May 2), and we were treated to quite a treat in a Kansas City Institution. The hotel is in the middle of the Power and Light District and certainly has a "feel" like old time Kansas City. The thing that made our hotel stay remarkable was the treatment by the staff....

Beautiful historic hotel in downtown Kansas City, Missouri only a block from the Power and Light Entertainment District. The hotel is very near the Kauffman Performing Arts Center which is architecturally stunning and worth going to see for a walk around the grounds and gardens. The historic Drum Room in The President lobby was a great place for cocktails and... More

Historic Hilton building and breakfast were the best part of our stay. The remainder of expectations for this Hilton fell incredibly short. Valet was unattentive and often I left my vehicle in the street waiting for service. Service only stepped up after the Yankees arrived at the hotel. Front desk staff was helpful and friendly and the overall noice level... More
