I stayed at the Hilton President on business in late March 2014 Overall this was a fantastic property in downtown Kansas City. It is a very historical hotel, it was built in the 1920's and has hosted President's and many VIP's throughout the years. Service was great at check-in, staff was accommodating and helpful, they bumped me up to a... More

A grand old hotel that preserves the historical aspects of a turn or the century building while providing all modern amenities. Close to downtown where you can find great dinning and entertainments. An excellent room, great staff, and great experience; I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Our family gathered at the Hilton President for Thanksgiving and truly enjoyed our experience. The first night we were there, Nick treated us to a tour of the building and explained details of the renovation. We found the hotel to have a cosy, sophisticated but laid back charm. All of us enjoyed the bar, the breakfast room as well as... More

Would not recommend, staff are not accommodating and elevators are a problem. Have been overcharged and hotel will not resolve. Stayed here for a wedding and expected service and hotel to live up to the name of a Hilton especially for the price, do not check out by phone, as they double charge for things, mine being valet parking.

We stayed at the President for a wedding. Great location near the power and light district. The staff were very friendly. We valet parked and sometimes had to find the valet. Had lunch at the bar one day. Bartender was great, as was the light lunch we had.

this is a very nice hotel, older style, but restored to a beautiful, cozy condition. We thought the staff was very attentive. We didn't see it right away when the GPS said we were there, so that was my only complaint-maybe better signage. We walked to Power and Light district and had an awesome time.

Everyone was very friendly and helpful during my 3-day/2-night stay. I love this classy, beautiful old hotel - it's renovations and its convenient location! As an employee of a large corporation, on company business, I also really appreciate the discounted price, as I would otherwise need to stay elsewhere, for a lower price, on my KC business.

We stayed here because it was within walking distance to the Sprint Center and we were attending a basketball game there. The hotel was beautiful and the staff was great. It is older but well maintained and with modern conveniences. We will stay here again.
