We enjoyed staying in downtown. Nice hotel with a lot to do in the area. I think I expected a bit nicer room for the price. The room was small and just average compared to other places I've stayed. No bath, but the bed was very comfortable.

Nice hotel with interesting history. Traditional elegance, showing minor age and wear in the lobby. Service is polite and fast. Best part was the room: not too fancy, but very comfortable, with an inviting homely feel, bright windows, pleasant layout. Nice restaurants nearby. Very reasonable room rates.

If you want to stay in downtown KC, this is a beautiful hotel for a reasonable price. This historic hotel has a beautiful lobby, nice bar/restaurant, helpful staff, and spacious, beautiful rooms. The only disappointment was the lack of a refrigerator in the room, if that matters to you. Within walking distance you will find the Power and Light District,...

The President Hotel is a beautiful historic building with spacious, quiet rooms. The hotel is conveniently located near Kauffman Performing Arts, Power & Light District, Main Street Theater, the Midland, and more. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Drum Room is conveniently located on the first floor.

I have stayed at this hotel many times before. It is my preferred location for business and non-business travel to Kansas City. It is well placed near Power and Light District, it is in a cool, historic old building, and it is a very nice hotel - modern, clean, comfortable bed, good TV. Also, the average cost for a stay...
