This is an old hotel in a good location. The lobby is nice and very well air conditioned. The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. There are three very small elevators that go to the rooms. The king bed room at the end of the hall was very simple but spacious with a front living room area which... More

My wife and I were here last weekend. It is a really nice old (1930's I think) hotel with a beautiful lobby and very nice rooms. When we were there they had a wine and cheese reception every evening from 5 to 6 pm. Really nice staff. Walking distance to Crossroads KC where we saw Wilco. Close to the Power... More

We stayed at the Phillips to attend a concert at the Arvest Theatre. The theatre and the Power and Light district were a quick walk. The hotel was old but very clean and well maintained. It was so quiet I did not hear a single neighbour. I would have give a 5 star but the room was a bit expensive... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the course of the last 9 years. I cannot say enough about the staff and feeling like I am the only one staying at this hotel. The staff and accomodations are phenomenal! This year they have added a shuttle which was wonderful!!!!! I do a lot of walking for the convention... More

This is an older, historic hotel located in the Power and Light District. It's about a $40 cab ride from the airport, FWIW. The lobby is very historical and pleasing to the eye. The rooms have nice crown molding, and seem very historical. The drawbacks include a lack of refrigeration in the rooms, which was really unfortunate. The air conditioning... More

I only stayed one night but it was perfect. My room was clean and it was the perfect temperature. KC was extremely hot the day I arrived so I was very grateful that my room was a very cool 70 degrees. Amber assisted me with checking in and she was very friendly. The complimentary wine and cheese at 5:00 was... More

First time to KC and had a great experience at Hotel Phillps. All the staff was very friendly and very helpful on places to go around town. I requested a room that was on a high floor with a good city view. Once we check in they told me my room was upgraded to a corner executive room. The room... More

We booked this hotel as an overnight getaway to catch Rush in concert at the Sprint Center. Lovely hotel, very historic but very modern in its appointments. The staff was friendly, helpful, and very patient with some difficult customers that were checking in ahead of us! I recommend Hotel Phillips without reservation ad will definitely stay here again!

This was my 2nd stay at this hotel. Now, keep in mind, this stay was a complimentary stay provided by the hotel's general manager because of a negative experience last year when I stayed here. I had high hopes that last year was just an isolated issue and that I wouldn't experience any issues this time. Things were looking up... More

Having read mixed reviews, we were a little wary of the state in which we were going to find our room, especially the bathroom (no photos of the bathrooms on the hotel web site; no appealing photos from reviewers). We were pleasantely surprised. First and foremost, our bathroom was immaculate, and I am not exaggerating. We did not find a... More
