I LIKE walking cold and unannounced into a hotel: good way to find out how much they really want your business; I’ve used this method all over the world and I’ve been consistently surprised that 90%+ I get as good a deal as if I’d booked the room a couple months in advance. In this case, I was driving a... More

An older historic hotel with updated first class facilities and first class staff. Everyone I came in contact with at the hotel treated my like their best guest. I was in town for a convention and the location was convenient to the meetings as well as to food and entertainment by Power and Light District. Can't wait till next visit.

Spent four nights while attending a conference. It's just 1-2 blocks from the KC Convention Center. The breakfast buffet was excellent--not has laden with high fat/cholesterol items as is often the case. They even had smoked salmon, along with all the trimmings that go with it. This is something that is rare in Europe, unlike 10 years ago. For those... More

Spent two days/nights in Kansas City a couple weeks ago visiting old friends and catching a Rangers/Royals game. Can't say enough about the wonderful hospitality we received at the Hilton President by the front desk and staff. The hotel lobby is beautiful. There was a nice jazz bar downstairs but ran out of time. The location couldn't be beat as... More

Awesome location downtown. Very good dining nearby. Cool lil bar in here. Price is a lil high for what you get, rooms are average but you pay for the location and it's convenience and the fact that a few dignitaries have stayed here in the past.
