“Solid Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

2nd visit to this hotel for business. Spent 3 nights in a Junior Suite. Check in was seamless and front desk was accommodating in offering options. Upgraded to a Pure suite for my allergies for $25 per night more. When I arrived at the room, I saw the bath had a tub/shower combo. I know from my previous visits that they have stand up showers so I called down as was promptly moved to another suite. Now having stayed in a King room and a JR. Suite, I don't think I would pay again for the extra space. It really just wasn't worth it.

Clean, efficient, comfortable bed, plenty of hot water and pressure. Did not use any hotel amenities on this visit so interaction with staff was minimal. As during my last stay, occupancy seemed very low as you rarely see more than a few people milling about at any hour of the day.

The location remains unbeatable. Steps away to many restaurants, bars and conveniences. This will be the go to hotel for all future visits for KC.

Room Tip: Not much in the way of "views" so any upper floor to be sure there is no noise should be f...

Thanks for the wonderful review of you visit. As you noted, we are the only hotel in the Power and Light Entertainment District, the location simply can't be beat. I am not sure if we moved you to another "PURE" room, but if not, I am sorry you did not get the opportunity to enjoy one of our rooms that really has been a blessing for those who suffer from allergies.
We look forward to seeing you again in the future!

This is a beautiful hotel in the heart of power and light. The drum room lounge is awesome with very innovative cocktails. The restaurant Providence has just been renovated and the food is great. If you are looking for a nice hotel within walking distance to all the restaurants and entertainment of Power & Light this is it.

My two days at the Hilton President were wonderful. The valet (Wallace) was very welcoming and so helpful. Check in and out was swift. The location (in The Power and Light District) was perfect for what I wanted to see and do and my corner room on the 10th floor had the most spectaluar views! The cab service was great as well and it was only about an $8 ride to the historic Jazz and Blues District where I enjoyed the live music and met some awesome people. The bar in the Hilton President was cozy and the bartenders were so friendly and fun to talk to. not to mention the best bloody mary I've ever had! I can't wait to visit KC again and definately know where I will stay.

Used this hotel for a business trip. Very clean, beds comfortable and fitness center was well equipped. The location was great for walking to market and Power & Light district. I would definitely stay here again.

Great location right next to power & lights district could walk to anything. We stayed their for a wedding, bar was great! Staff super friendly and rooms were really clean and nice. I recommend eating at succotash its about a 15-20 min walk from hotel but well worth it!

I stayed in a room with two double beds. The room was outstanding; very clean; updated bathroom; great bedding; a desk and office chair; and an easy chair. This hotel is a five minute walk to the Sprint Center so is an excellent place to stay for concerts and events in downtown Kansas City, MO. There are several downsides: parking is extra and you have the option to self-park or valet park; breakfast is extra; the hotel restaurant is expensive. You are just one block from the Power and Light District which has many great restaurants and bars. Free Wifi is available in all the rooms. My major complaint is that a room with two double beds was available for $200 or a King for $369. Quite a difference in price. I did not see an option for a room with a single queen bed. Also no pool!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the packages. I got a room with parking and breakfast for $210. This package was av...

Experience wasn't as good as in the past. 1. Staff not as friendly. 2. No live music as has historically been the case and currently advertised on Web site. 3. Room on 2nd floor near traffic was very loud!
