I recently stayed at the Hilton President and it wasn't long before I remembered why I like this place so well. I was just taking my bags out of the car and the Front Desk Supervisor(Christine) came by and remembered who I was. I later saw her when i checked in and again talked to me and asked me some... More

You can build the most beautiful hotel in the world, but if you dont have the staff, you really have nothing. Thanks for poiting out the most important part of our hotel, the staff. We are working as hard as we possibly can to ensure all guests have the same experience you outlined in your kind review. More

We haven't stayed in downtown Kansas City for nearly 10 years, but we were ready to explore the Power and Light District and selected what we thought would be the closest hotel to the area. We were delighted to find the Hilton President in excellent condition and updated throughout! Parking was convenient, the Drum Lounge served good drinks and had... More

Yes its in a good location. Yes it has some great architectural history. No the rooms are small. No they charge you 18.00 to park at their garage. No, the breakfast that they had the nerve to charge 15.00 for was gross and unedible. Mix eggs, oily sausage and bacon with no flavor. I wouldnt have paid 5.00 for this... More

Thanks for taking a moment to share your thoughts on your visit to our hotel. I am sorry you had a bad experience wtih the breakfast and with parking. Its unfortunate that you had these two items not to your liking and it appears that set the tone for the entire visit. More

We spent a recent weekend in kansas city for my 21st birthday. this location was ideal because it was walking distance to power and light, as well as right downtown. the building is so beautiful and just by looking into the lobby/common areas of the hotel you can obviously tell up keep is a main priority. the rooms were lovely,...

Me and a team of my co-workers stay at this hotel regularly, once every months. The place never disappoints. The rooms are very clean and well appointed, the staff is nice, and the breakfast is tasty. This place is located in the middle of Power and Light district and is close to a lot of good dining choices.

We stayed at the Hilton President for one night at the end of April. Beautifully restored property, excellent bell service, spacious room, on the street but very quiet.

This hotel has the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! I wish I could replicate it at home. Very nice facility in a nice location near nightlife. Several restaurants nearby. Very accommodating staff. Good breakfast.

This may be a good hotel to stay at if you have business in the downtown district of KC, but otherwise I wouldn't stay here again. The neighborhood was all but deserted over the weekend, making it creepy when walking around, especially after dark. Every place we wanted to go for sightseeing was a bus or cab ride away, making...

Sorry about your uneasiness with the location of the hotel, which is strange as almost every weekend there is hustle and bustle in the Power and Light Entertainment District, actually this is the first time I have heard comments about the district being quiet and deserted. Either way I wish you would have had a more enjoyable visit to Kansas... More
