An overall fun trip…our first time ever to stay in KC and the trip as a while was fun. Most of the staff dealt with were on point and the Hotel was very nice! Easy access to bars and restaurants. Front desk staff was great!

Hotel's Favorite
Prior to booking at Hilton President. I was honestly reluctant given the recent shocking reviews. We've stayed at Hotel Philips before and enjoyed it but I called to ask about Diamond benefits and was told they were under-staffed so were not offering anything such as breakfast. We thought we'd give the Hilton President a try as the building look beautiful and location is perfect for a quick weekend trip to Power Light. Every staff member we interacted with was extremely pleasant and competent. Philip, the hotel manager, kindly upgraded us to the Reagan Suite, which was stunning. It is just above the lobby so may be loud if there was an event/people were in the restrooms beside the suite as you can hear the restroom music from the room's bathroom but the room was stunning, historic and very spacious. Truly the best suite we've stayed in at a Hilton property. I usually like a bath but the massive walk in shower had a Bluetooth speaker and I throughly enjoyed it. I've seen countless reviews about the cleanliness of the property and we had no issues. I wouldn't say it is spotless, and our suite is maybe not used frequently so the freezer was not the cleanest for example but this is not a big deal to me as the areas we used (the bedroom, bathroom, living room) were very clean. Being on the bottom floor we were slightly nervous as usually I opt for a high floor to reduce noise chance. However, we stayed on a weekend and no noise from outside whatsoever and I'm a very light sleeper. Breakfast was good and we're Diamond members so it was covered. The buffet is "brought to you" and you place your order from your table. It wasn't anything to write home about but it was fine and we were grateful it was being offered as many hotels have decided not to do proper breakfast since COVID. Overall, lovely staff and a gorgeous property made for a fantastic stay. It felt like we were staying at a completely different property than the one other people seem to have been reviewing about I'm a tough critic. Thank you so much Philip for making our stay so special, we'll definitely be back!

Holly- Thanks so much for that wonderful review of your visit. Its always nice to see a review from international travelers. I am pleased you were able to enjoy the hotel and our amenities. I think the Bluetooth speakers in your shower are pretty unique to our hotel! We certainly hope to see you again in the future.

The hotel is located in the heart of Kansas City. As mentioned earlier, the parking garage is not meant to support larger trucks and posed a few safety vulnerabilities while entering and exiting the facility. Our room was very clean with the exception of fending off a couple spiders. We only utilized the bar located in the hotel and could not provide any feedback on the other services. The atmosphere was very elegant and provided that presidential feel. My wife and I do believe if microwaves and refrigerators were added to the rooms that it would increase the guests experience.

Everything says this is 4 star hotel. Except there is nothing about the rooms or amenities that would reflect a 4 star hotel. I was expecting a nice room that was relatively updated and had quality bedding and things like a fridge or microwave. There was no fridge and the rooms were very dated. The bedding was not good quality and I felt like i was staying at a Hampton inn (except I’ve stayed at nicer Hampton Inns than even this hotel). The beds were also very uncomfortable. If you are looking for a nice 4 star hotel, look elsewhere. Also, if you are wanting a hotel that is relatively quiet, look elsewhere. You can hear the music from power and light all night and if there is an event in the hotel, it will sound like it is right below you even if you are on the top floor. It was very annoying. The noise went way past 10:30pm which is it was just till 10:30pm that would be reasonable, but beyond that it is a nuisance. And the WiFi was TERRIBLE. Overall I do not recommend this hotel.

The Hotel President in Downtown KC is the place to stay. We won’t stay anywhere else now. Everything is clean and always comfortable. The staff make you feel very welcome. Also Very easy walk to KC live from the hotel.
