Lovely old building especially the lobby. No completely covered way to get from garage, but fairly close access to back door - entry on lower level. Fitness center small, but decently appointed, also on lower level. Restaurant for breakfast was fairly quiet on weekend we were there, so the breakfast items didn't move very quickly and looked like they had...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed December 20, 2016

I attended a Christmas Party at the President. This hotel is everything one comes to expect from a Hilton hotel. It was bitterly cold (below zero) in Kansas City that day. Everything was covered in ice and snow. We arrived early (around two o'clock (2 pm)). All I expected to do was to pre-check-in. However, they let me go ahead...

Wonderful room. Very clean. Helpful staff. The parking is a little tricky as you have to park in the parking garage next to the hotel. There is valet parking however there was not a valet parking attendant on duty the night we stayed due to a shortage of staff due to a basketball game.

I am terribly sorry you had some hot water issues. Now that you have checked out it may be hard to re-create the conditions that caused this shortage, but we will certainly try to address this issue. We certainly will use your comments for our improvement. Thanks again for your candid feedback.

This was good hotel for a one night stay. PROS: bed was comfy and room was decent size, not tiny. Bath had refitted shower and nice mirror, but did look like they just "refreshed" it hallways had been recently refreshed CONS: arrived after 5pm and only one valet (who was also bellman) available. Only one person at check-in so it...

Great location. My friend and I were in KC to attend a POUND training class. This hotel was in an easy spot for the trip. Close to great restaurants and KC live, then it was easy in the morning to get to our class! Staff and service were great!

I stayed at the Hilton President while attending an event at the Sprint Center with my family. The interior has been recently updated and is in great condition. I found the staff to be very helpful and the rooms to be comfortable. I would highly reccomend it.

We love staying at the President when we are in KC especially for concerts. Very comfortable. Nice rooms. Friendly staff. The Drum Room is a quaint bar in the hotel. We enjoy a cocktail before going to dinner at one of the many great restaurants near the hotel.

I wanted to give this hotel a five star, except for a few items. Pros: large rooms, large bath, quite, they saved the charming details of the old hotel but meticulously updated everything where it mattered, convenient valet parking, great restaurant and separate bar. The restaurant should be five star. The bar staff is great. Cons: tiny TV, breakfast room...

Very nice looking historic hotel. The room was on the 4th floor and was newly renovated. Beds were comfortable. The location is outstanding for the KC Live area and Sprint Center. That said, we did have some issues. The service overall was lacking. The 2nd day our room didn't get serviced in the 5 hours we were out of it...
