The hotel is located downtown near the arena area. It is a older property but has been updated and was clean. Had a nice restaurant on site and had parking next door to property. Minor issues with check in and they need to have more than 1 employee checking people in during peek hours. A group in front of us... More

Thanks for the review of your visit to our hotel. My apologies for the slow check in. Sometimes the staffing model does not jive with the arrival patterns of our guests. Certainly taken under advisement. I am pleased you enjoyed the rest of your visit to our hotel. I have also taken note of the trash and debris that you... More

The hotel was very clean and the employees were nice. Nice amenities (though the $3.50 optional bottle of water in the room is kind of lame). $16 garage parking with in and out privileges was just fine, but later that evening was $5 event parking if you want to try to save a few bucks. Air conditioning seemed a little... More

Parking for hotel residents $16. Public $10. HUH ? Rooms clean. Old hotel that is very well preserved and a good location if wanting downtown and near the trendy Power and Light party district. Rooms are well appointed except TV is flat screen but fairly small. I'd guess 25" or so. Shower is nice. Air conditioning did not respond to... More

Thanks for the review of your visit. The parking rates are really determined in conjunction with the cost to build our parking garage, which was several million dollars. We built this garage to be in close proximity and walking distance to the hotel. Very common especially for a downtown hotel. Thanks for all of the candid feedback, I am pleased... More

We stayed here about a year ago. The room we had was a corner room with the view of the back parking lot. It was clean, quite, perfectly dark at night, and very comfortable. Service was so so. But this is a hotel in a great location for walking to numerous places to eat and shop. At that time though,... More

My work group stayed here for a strategic planning meeting and team building event. This beautiful hotel helped make our work pleasant and productive. The hotel was spotless, the rooms are quiet. The hotel is steps from many fine restaurants, art venues, and the Sprint Center. The Drum Room Bar is not to be missed!

The Hilton President is old school elegance, a hotel built in the early 1900s that has the charm and elegance from that era in a refurbished but 20's era decor complete with 20'-40's era music piped into the lobby. The rooms are large, the staff is great and with only 220 rooms, very uncrowded.

Our meeting was at a Hilton hotel in Kansas City. Expecting a typical modern hotel, you can imagine my surprise to see a beautiful old building that was completely made over. The President name for the hotel came from the fact that the Republican National convention was held there in 1928. Herbert Hoover was nominated for president. The Drum room... More

I stayed here for one night following an evening at Power and Light. It was extremely clean and the atmosphere was great. It was conveniently located for the purpose I was seeking and the rate wasn't to bad. We paid a little to upgrade to a corner room with an incredible view, which was well worth it even if we...
