“Great hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We were looking to get out of town and have a little fun. Decided to try the power and light district in KC. We booked a standard room which was in great shape, the bed was comfy and everything was what you'd expect at a Hilton. The location was the best, we walked to a nearby restaurant and then on to the night life in the area, no driving needed! Yep it's expensive, in this case you get what you pay for, we'll be back.

This is a very beautiful Hotel with comfortable beds and nice rooms. Wish the beds were queen instead of regular size though. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Within walking distance to Sprint center and other events in the area. Only downside is the cost of an overnight stay was higher than I would have liked. I guess I must be getting old.

Very clean, great service, good food, old fashioned feel, nice bar, overall a very good choice. Very close to Power & Light entertainment district. Stayed to catch a Chief's football game. This is a much better choice than staying close to the stadium. Great nightlife, shopping, and restaurants are all clustered near this hotel. Nothing to do near stadium!

Great hotel...shuttle service from Amtrak station very nice. We were there for the Women of Faith conference at the Sprint Center so you couldn't ask for a better location. Close to everything. This is our second year back. Friendly staff, very accommodating. They go above & beyond to make sure you have a pleasant stay. The beds were fantastic...best sleep I've had in a while. We thought we were going to have a crisis on Sunday morning-we needed a shuttle but the hotel was short-staffed. Another hotel employee, who's shift was scheduled to end, volunteered to take me and my seven friends to the train station. That is the kind of service that brings people back. Great stay - all my friends were very impressed.

Beautiful historic hotel. Front desk personnel are not service oriented and welcoming. Starbuck's closes at 11am. There are a number of lovely properties downtown which would be better choices. Downtown area has many restuarants including the convention center. Easy access to major highways. A short distance to beautiful Plaza neighborhood.

We stayed here on a business trip. This hotel is just beautiful. The building is old, but wonderfully kept. It is clean and they pay attention to detail. The staff was very friendly, I don't think I passed a single staff member in the hall that didn't stop to say "hello" and ask me how my day was going. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were large and updated. We had a business meeting in the "aztec room". It was wonderful as well. The location was great, within walking distance to the bars, restaurants & nightlife. We really had a great time. Only 15 minutes from the airport. Would certainly stay here again.
