“Beautiful hotel - exceptional service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Everything surrounding my stay was exceptional. Love the restored building including the mini museum! The room was clean and cozy and the bed was very comfy. Walking distance to Power and Light district is a plus. Everybody I encountered was extremely friendly.

Well, we certainly don't mind being called "beautiful" and thanks for the kind note about the exceptional service, we truly believe that these two points are what separates us from the other hotels in the area. Please look us up again in the future!

The outstanding service started and ended with the valet parking attendant. He was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. The historic hotel has a beautiful lobby. The location in the Power and Light district is ideal. The rooms have obviously been remodeled and are like new. The breakfast buffet was a cut above. Also, the price was amazingly low. I would stay here again.

This is a renovated older building. Nothing wrong with the rooms, they are decent sized and clean. Service is fine. My only complaint is the price relative to what you are getting. When I stayed here, the rates were about $200 per night mid-week. That is way too much for this place. Yes, it is in downtown Kansas City, but this is not Manhattan. Just too much for this size of a room in this location. You could not walk to an area with alot of restaurants from here. This is a mismatch between price and room size/amenities/location.

Thanks for taking the time to write the review. Sorry you felt the value was not there. We try to offer competitive rates however we also feel the value of a Four Diamond hotel located in such a wonderful area offers a great deal of value, but your point is certainly taken under advisement. I did note a comment about restaurants in the area. We should have done a better job of advising you of the 20-30 restaurants and entertainment venues that are within one block of the hotel.

We booked the "Take me to the Top Package" and it was so worth it. We had a corner room on the 11th floor with 3 huge windows overlooking the beautiful city lights! The room was very spacious and the hotel overall was wonderful. Will be staying here again soon and will definitely recommend to family and friends!

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel! It is beautifully appointed and the staff members that we encountered were definitely interested in providing outstanding customer service, particularly Tahir in Valet and Amir in the restaurant. Will definitely stay here again when I return to KC. GREAT location in the Power and Light District as well. This hotel is absolutely surrounded with dining and entertainment options!

Thanks for the wonderful review of your visit to our hotel. I am so pleased everything was perfect! Most importantly you point out two things that set us apart. 1. The staff. We have a wonderful team of hospitality professionals. Thanks for mentioning the service from Tahir! 2. The location. The location is second to none. We are the only hotel located in the Power and Light Entertainment District, and we are the closest hotel to the Sprint Center. Ideally located for just about any kind of trip to Kansas City.
Thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts and we look forward to seeing you again in the future!

The Hilton President was a great hotel with an excellent staff. My wife and I were extremely pleased to stay there. We'll be back. When we got there we realized there were feather pillows and comforter in the room, which we are allergic to. The hotel staff quickly removed the down materials.

Thanks for the great "5-dot" review of your visit to our hotel. I am pleased we reacted quickly to your allergy. May I suggest in the future you ask for one of our "PURE" rooms. They are completely engineered for those who suffer from allergies. Again, thanks so much and we look forward to seeing you in the future!

Room was very quiet and peaceful. My dinner from room service was rather bland - not much flavor to the salad or pasta special. The hotel is old, but has aged relatively well, although the bathroom in my room could have used some updating. Finally, the breakfast selection was very good - better than the typical fare at other Hilton properties.
