This is the hotel that I suggest to anyone coming to town. It's a beautiful, boutique hotel with tons of character. Within walking distance from a grocery store, tons of coffee shops and Power & Light District and the Sprint Center. Short cab / drive to Crown Centee, The Plaza and Westport.

The hotel is in a great location. Close to Lifeblock which makes it convenient if you are a party goer. The hotel looks great for outside, the lobby is beautiful and the rooms are good and include all essentials. However, we had a bad experience with the management. Three days prior to the trip we requested for a two twin... More

My husband and I stayed for one night while passing through on the way home after visiting family up north. After researching all the motel options, we noticed this place was only slightly more for what looked like a much nicer experience. We were not disappointed! The service was lovely, the room well stocked, and the room service breakfast was... More

We stayed at the Hotel Phillips for just one night and it was a wonderful experience. The hotel itself is beautiful, it has an old Hollywood kind of feel, and complimentary wine and cheese is offered at happy hour in the lobby. The rooms are rather spartan, in an elegant sort of way, the beds were comfortable, and it was... More

Everything went smoothly, the staff was friendly, the historic lobby was totally charming, bed was comfortable and a good-size room. We parked in the KC library parking lot 3 blocks away for cheaper parking.

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. We reserved a room through Priceline at a good rate and ended up being on the top floor. We had a few drinks at the hotel bar in the evenings and it was nice. The valet was pretty slow, we had to wait almost 20 minutes after we checked out.

From the moment we pulled up to this beautiful hotel, we felt taken care of. Our valet, Scott, was very kind and happy to answer our questions. Check in was a breeze!! Our room was on the 15th floor near the elevators. I have read in other reviews there is no hot water on this floor...WRONG! Just let the water... More

We reserved this room through Priceline, it was advertised as a 4 Star Hotel. The interior of the rooms first appears to be updated, but when you actually look around it is VERY dirty! The bathroom was VERY tiny. Under the faucet was BLACK MOLD. The entire room was very dusty and appeared that it had not been dusted for... More

I've been put in this hotel a few times by clients when I'm in town... and each time, I experienced staff shortcomings. I don't know who "trains" these folks, but the "trainer" needs to be replaced. The staff just doesn't "get" customer service. First of all, our RESERVED king room was given away to someone else, and we were given... More

We got a king "superior" room, the bathroom was maybe 5'x6' and three feet away from the head of the bed. There was no exhaust fan and absolutely NO privacy. We went to the restaurant and ordered a glass of wine for me, beer for him and shallots and salmon sliders as an appetiser. The waitor brought our requested items... More
