Just spent 3 nights at this delightful hotel in Midwest USA. It has recently been restored to its former glory and it was here in The Drum Room that some of the "greats"" used to perform. Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Patsy Cline. What a stunning building. The staff are great. The food in the Providence Restaurant is first class and... More

Wonderful experience at the hotel. Front desk ladies were so helpful and friendly. Room very quiet, great beds and huge bathroom. The hotel has great pictures of the history of the hotel from the 1920's when it was built. I think Hilton put 45 million in to restore the hotel. Wonderful character to the hotel.

The hotel was recently redone (a few yrs ago) and restored to its former grandeur. Neat interior, modern amenities. Near the arena, right downtown. Good sized rooms and a very reasonable price. The bar, (the Drum Room) looked interesting, but I did not visit it. This is the only place I will stay at in KC. Highly recommended.

I thought I would get more for $300 a night. Besides it being a historic hotel, nothing really makes this hotel stand out. The Good: Rooms are updated and clean and staff friendly. The bad: expensive, breakfast buffet was all cold, vending machines on floor didn't work, and free wifi was a joke--Wifi signal was so weak it's no wonder... More

Well it certainly appears we could have done a better job during your visit. All of your comments are taken under advisement. I can say that our WI-FI has been upgraded in the past 24 hours to an entirely new service called "Stay Connected by HIlton and AT&T" The new system is robust and will provide a complimentary service that...

I really liked the charm of this hotel. The room was large, the bathroom modern and clean, and the bar area was nice after a long day. Unlike many other Hilton hotels there was no charge for the wifi Internet or the fitness center. Though the fitness center is small and not up to par to other Hilton hotels. Mark,... More

Beautiful clean hotel was a nice surprise. This is a Kansas City gem. Comfortable beds and pillows and everything was very clean. The fresh fruit was an extra added bonus. Friendly and helpful staff was a pleasant surprise.

Good location to the very happening Power & Light District. Hotel itself has an older feel to it which is nice. Restaurant bar attached to the hotel was pricey but not much more than surrounding establishments. There was a close grocery store within walking distance and there are a ton of restaurants and bars a stones throw from the front... More

Just spent a night at the hotel on 03/09/13. We booked this hotel based on our trip agenda which included a concert at the Sprint Center. The hotel check-in went very smooth along with the valet parking which cost $18.00 but well worth it. The Sprint Center in only a 5-10 minute walk which makes the stay even more valuable.... More
