I had been looking for a hotel for my wedding party and myself to stay in the night before my wedding and when I looked at this hotel I fell in love. I booked 5 rooms, I wasn't sure whether I wanted them for just one or two nights, but about a week before my reservations I decided to add... More

The first night of our stay we stayed at Hotel Phillips for a work trip. My husband and I enjoyed the hotel and time in KC so much we decided to extend. I did a Priceline name your deal, which you cannot choose a hotel, just the price, rating and location. We were so happy when our low bid happened... More

Hotel Phillips is conveniently located in down town Kansas City MO. This hotel is a fairly recently renovated version of a grand older hotel of the area and it has some neat decor and meeting rooms. Very handy location for the central convention center and for short excursions into the historic and other visitor attractions in the area. A variety... More

First, let me start by saying this is a very quaint property. When I walked into the lobby, I thought it was an old theatre the way it was structured. It is very cute and has a nice old world vibe. However, walking into the lobby there is immediately a smell of mold -- like musty carpet. My colleague and... More

My family stayed one night while in KC on a family vacation. Our room was clean and valet service was nice. However, the air vent in our room squeaked all night long so we did not sleep very well at all.

I stayed here for 4 days and the room has been dirty since I got here. It has a terrible smell and there was trash under the desk. There are two light bulbs that are not working and the room is super dark. I asked in the front desk if they could clean my room but I dont see any... More

I stayed here for two nights recently and my experience was just "ok". The rooms are MUCH smaller in person than they appear online. The hotel photographer made a good job in making the rooms look better than they do in real life. Modern decor in the room is nice and I loved the chairs and the art work on... More

Recently stayed at the Hotel Phillips and if was a wonderful experience. You walk back in time when you stay here. Would recommend this place to anyone. Room was large and very nice. You can see some issues but what would you expect with an older place. Had no issues from check in to check out. We will stay again!!!!!

HOTEL: We visit Kansas City each year for one week and Hotel Phillips was our choice. Rooms are nice, housekeeping was very helpful. In the previous years, the receptionists have been an excellent source of ideas for evening and night activities, places to visit, and restaurants to try. (Our favorite being 12 Baltimore.) PLACES: Restaurant next door - 12 Baltimore... More

When I asked my wife if she would like to celebrate our 55th by staying at the Hotel Phillips in KC, she thought I was joking. That where we spent the first night of our honeymoon in 1959 and she couldn't believe it was still open...and if so, a place anybody would want to stay. Our 55th at the Phillips... More
