“A very nice and comfortable Hotel”

A very nice and comfortable Hotel conveniently located in downtown Kansas City. The Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The Hotel is conveniently located to numeous shops and restaurants. The President is my first choice when visiting Kansas City.

Our friends introduced us to the Hilton President. It's often hard to modernize a historic property like this, but Hilton has done a beautiful job. We've stayed several times and the staff, from the front desk to the bellman and housekeeping team, always make us feel welcome and appreciated. During our last stay, we had made plans for a special dinner at a nearby restaurant. The event was special enough that my husband and I were both dressed up - he in a suit and I in a cocktail dress. The restaurant was so bad that we left, and went straight to the bar at the hotel to scare up some food. The waitress noticed our attire, listened to our story of woe, and went out of her way to take care of us. The exercise room is high quality with Precor equipment. This is the place to stay if downtown is where you want to be. You can walk to the Power and Light District, Sprint Center, Kavanaugh, Crossroads and the River Market area.

Room Tip: Get a corner room if you can - more light and windows.

We stayed at the Hilton President Hotel before an event at The Midland Theatre. The hotel is beautiful and was within easy walking distance to The Midland and the Power and Light District. I would definately stay here again.

. The lobby is open and inviting at the same time but mostly it is beautifully decorated with classic elegance. The doorman was very helpful and the parking was conveniently located. Our King Suite room was nicely sized and decorated most importantly it was very clean. The location of the hotel was also very convenient to the historic downtown, the staples center and even more impressive attractions of the Powers and Light District. It was a great place to start your day with the Kids visiting the College basketball experience and we even walked to the Union Square and Crown Plaza but you want to end your day at the attraction in Powers and Light District with its shopping, bars and restaurants and you want to be near your hotel. We loved the newly redone Drum Room and Restaurant located in the hotel. The food was delicious, the drinks fabulous but the very best part was the service. Absolutely outstanding from the doormen, front desk clerk, the bartenders, waitresses to the management they all went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied and enjoying our stay. We will highly recommend this hotel and are looking forward to our next visit.

Thanks so much for the kind words about your visit to our hotel. We are indeed located in the Power and Light Entertainment District, and just a two minute walk to the Sprint Center. Your review noted our location to the Staples Center, while that would be nice...it would indeed be quite a hike to Los Angeles!
Thanks again for your time, we look forward to you returning in the future!

I was extremely impressed by where this hotel was located. Tons of restaurants and bars within walking distance. The hotel was an older historical building. But it was very clean and my bed was comfortable. The service was amazing. Everyone was willing to help with any questions. Will return!

Room Tip: Friends who had their rooms above the bar found their rooms to be a bit noisy.

From the minute you walk in the lobby you are made to feel very welcome. The rooms are gorgeous. Everything you need is a short walk from the hotel. The staff is great, the gym is nice and there is always fresh fruit in the lobby to snack on!

We quite often hear that one of the best things about our hotel is indeed the "location,location,location" we are the ONLY hotel in the Power and Light Entertainment District. I am so pleased you had a wonderful stay, but more importantly you will return in the future. There is no greater compliment to us.
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you in the future!
